“Twas the night before Christmas, and up in the sky not a creature was stirring, not even a fly. When all of a sudden, with a bright flash of red, a present did land on poor Kribbl’s head!”
So begins the story of Beyond Ynth Xmas Edition, a holiday version of the popular iOS physics puzzler, Beyond Ynth. The original has gamers help Kribi, an industrious ant, as ants are wont to be, create paths to bring light to his home world of Kriblonia. The Christmas edition is back in the App Store for free. Only for the holidays, however, after which it will vanish again, at least until next year.
The game features five exclusive Christmas levels, and tells a new side-story which reveals itself through successful gameplay. The challenging and refined physics puzzles make this a great free virtual stocking stuffer, but be forewarned, while cute, this game is hard. It’s not the best pick for little gamers, but seasoned puzzlers will enjoy the challenge and holiday wrapping.

Namco has decided it was high time to take the game of Pong, fuse it together with interactive beats, put a pretty coat of paint on it all, and push it out to iOS devices. You decide if tilt controls work best, or if you like touching the screen as you move a paddle up and down to bounce beats back to where they came from. Crazy scores, fun retro visuals, and four-player action make this a splendid addition to your gaming collection.

I don’t know if this problem has hit your village as of yet, but Flight Control is (still) haunting my dreams. Ever since Christine Morris put five stars on the review I’ve been hooked. I admit, the day I hit 100, I thought that I was the best in the world… and boy, was I wrong.
My feeling of invincibility was dashed after I was sent a youtube link (watch it here) of a guy landing 6000 planes in a row. 6000! Every morning now I wake up screaming, “6000! No way!”, leaving the people I live with in a constant state of panic. In light of this, I am attempting to move on to something that will redirect my focus, in turn giving me a whole new set of nightmare inducing dreams.
Just this morning, I found what could be the answer to my call. The game is called Parachute Panic, and it may just have the slick style/substance that I have been searching for. Parachute Panic, made by FDG Entertainment (known for the Bobby Carrot series), looks fantastic, even in its alleged “early alpha” build. Check out the video, watch it in Hi-Def, and tell me, honestly, if you think my sleepless nights will be coming to an end.
According to the developer, the game should appear on the app store late May/early June. Enjoy!
