Harold and the Purple Crayon is a wondrous and thoughtful adaptation of the classic 1955 children’s book of the same name that had been developed into an interactive storybook, now a universal application.

I remember Harold and the Purple Crayon from my childhood and have shared this story with my son as well. Few children’s books that I can think of beg to be turned into an interactive storybook as much as this one does, and I have been eagerly waiting for this to be developed into a universal app, knowing that at some point this was bound to happen.

I am very eager to introduce this app to readers who may not know of its existence. It is the perfect experience that I expected with every element thoughtfully conceived, making this book a joy to share with my son.

Prince of Persia Retro Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Prince of Persia Retro is a true update to the original game that started it all. The game is, in fact, a true replica of the original with nothing more than an updated frame. If you can get past the frustrating controls, there is a lot of greatness here to enjoy.

Dig Dug Remix

Dig Dug Remix

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Dig Dug Remix is really two games in one. We are not only given the classic that was brought to our screens back in 1982 (eek I don't remember - honest) but also the remix version which is thankfully juiced up a bit. In this case, I am definitely preferring the remix to the classic.

Zenonia

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Zenonia showcases what iPhone RPGs should look like. Sure, it has its flaws; the generic plot doesn't do it any favors. But beautiful graphics and amazing depth make this a must-have for most RPG fans.

Sonic the Hedgehog

Sonic, he can really move/Sonic, he’s got an attitude/Sonic, he’s… on my iPhone?

Not entirely out of left field, but entirely unpublicized, comes Sonic the Hedgehog to the iPhone. From the description of the game in the app store, the new app lets you “Relive your favorite memories of the Genesis era as you rocket Sonic through hair-raising loop-de-loops and dizzying dives as you gather up Rings and stop Dr. Eggman’s schemes for world domination!”

Even though I have probably seen (and played) everything this game has to offer, I still want it… really, really badly. If all goes well with my espresso machine, I should have a review up by morning. Wish me luck!

Update: No more espresso!!! Nooooooo! We may have to wait till mid-afternoon.

Trivial Pursuit

Trivial Pursuit

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Trivial Pursuit for the iPhone is a faithful recreation of the classic board game that sold ten kajillian copies. Fortunately for us, the difficulty has been ramped down a bit from the original, evil blue boxed version but is a bit harder than some of the more modern creations. With it's nice game balance, new gameplay options, and inviting animation, Trivial Pursuit is a real winner.

Reflexion

Reflexion

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Reflexion by Trileet stands out among a huge group of Breakout clones on the App Store. A few have shaken up the formula with 3-D perspectives and circular paddle paths, but this game takes things a step further.

Mega Man 2

Mega Man 2

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
I want to like Mega Man on the iPhone, I really do, but I just can't. While the core of the game is the same, the experience is tainted by its broken controls and its lack of difficulty. You definitely won't be kicking yourself (too hard) for buying this one, but the game may end up being the 148th app on your iPhone.

Wolfenstein 3D

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Wolfenstein 3D for the iPhone is a near perfect re-creation of the classic game that popularized the FPS genre. Surprisingly the game holds up quite well after all these years and looks quite solid on the iPhone platform. What's even more surprising is the gameplay, which proves that the iPhone can be a solid FPS platform.

MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition

MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
MONOPOLY Here & Now: The World Edition includes updated properties which are far more expensive than those in the classic game. It takes some getting used to not having Boardwalk and Ventura, for example, but Instanbul and London serve as suitable substitues. The game loads quickly, looks great, and generally plays great. Includes modes for one player, multiple players by passing the iPhone around, as well as wifi multi-play (on the same router).
