If you've already conquered the Savannahand are running a profitable zooin Rodeo Stampede, then congrats. You're already one of the most impressive cowboys or cowgirls flying the friendly skies (trust us, that will make a lot more sense if you've been playing the game for a while).
But your job is only half done. Once you've corralled all of the Savannah animals, you're ready to step up to test your skills against the Jungle. You do remember what Guns N' Roses warned us about the jungle, right?
If you enjoy mixed martial arts, you'll want to check out UFC Knockout 2016. The latest of Topps' line of digital trading card apps -- which also includes apps for baseball, football (regular and American), Star Wars, and The Walking Dead -- it features all the stars of the UFC on a variety of virtual, collectible cards.
The app also has a fantasy sports element, as you can compete using the cards you have amassed, scoring points when those fighters do well in real UFC bouts. To take part in any of what the app has to offer, though, you're going to need coins, which serve as the in-app currency.
In CSR Racing 2, you're only as cool as your garage. NaturalMotion and Zynga stocked their new drag racing title with an imprssive selection of top notch vehicles, enough to ever make Jay Leno envious if they were all in one real life collection.
But it's one thing to talk about all the sweet rides in CSR2 and another to actually be able to grab them for yourself. With two dozen manufacturers represented and cars spread across five different tiers, there's a lot of work to do to collect them all.
If we've learned anything about celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay over the years, it's that you don't want him angry and breathing down your neck. He's not above calling you out on TV, making a mockery of your efforts in the kitchen in front of millions of people.
In his new game, Gordon Ramsay DASH, he's actually pretty complimentary of your cooking efforts -- provided you get orders right and serve customers efficiently. The road to doing that is paved with upgrades, as you'll need both better food and improved appliances to become a true 'Rising Star Chef.'
There was a good article this week in The Independent about how more women are using fertility appsas a de facto form of contraception. It's apparently not working too well, leading to numerous unwanted pregnancies.
That's not a good thing. But the fact remains that apps to track a woman's menstrual cycle are probably as popular as they've ever been. A glance at the section of the App Store devoted to Health and Fitness bears this out, as among the fitness trackers and weight loss aids are plenty of fertility apps.
NaturalMotion and Zynga brought a lot of real life cars to the table for CSR Racing 2. From souped up everyday rides made by Nissan and Hyundai to supercars produced by the likes of McLaren and Pagani, there really is something for everyone.
Naturally, the first question a lot of gamers have about a title like this is, "How many cars on there?" That's generally followed closely by another: "How do I get my hands on them?"
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
If you saw our post earlier this month announcing the imminent release of ZPlay’s new creation, Inner Circle, you’ll be happy to know that it’s now available on the App Store.
Established in 2010, developer and publisher ZPlay have taken the mobile gaming industry by storm, attracting an impressive collection of over 400 million users to date and achieved top 10 ratings across the globe.
With its digestible concept, pretty graphics and quirky soundtrack, the title is a sure-fire hit with all generations, from young kids to grandparents alike – think Tetris, for the 21st Century.
To succeed within gameplay, the idea is to rotate the outer circle to align with the ‘inner circle’, by tapping the screen to flip the colours on the wheel and swiping to shrink it in order to receive more points.
Loss occurs when players don’t manage to align the colours successfully before the circles meet, which gets more and more difficult to avoid as you progress through the game’s impressive array of 250 levels.
With a number of sweet features including a night-mode that protects sleepy eyes from bright shades by altering the colour scheme for varied lighting, and an Arcade mode that allows players to plough through as many levels as they can on an indefinite scale, Inner Circle has a lot to offer.
Presently, you can catch the release, for free, from the App Store for your Apple device – so, what’re you waiting for?
CSR Racing 2, or CSR2, as it likes to call itself, has finally arrived. The follow-up to the immensely popular drag racing game CSR Racing is the first release from NaturalMotion since the studio's acquisition by Zynga in early 2014.
That takes care of the "why you should care" part. Along with what NaturalMotion is calling "beyond console quality" visuals, CSR Racing 2tinkers with the formula of its predecessor just enough to stake out some of its own turf.
Facebook is already a lot of things to a lot of people. It's a social network, sure, but also a tool for catologing memories, chatting with friends, and much more.
What isn't as well known yet is that Facebook would like to become a player in the peer-to-peer payment space, meaning that it wants to leverage its already massive network of users and have them start sending money to each other through its app. The service has been available in the Messenger app for a while, but now it's possible to either send or receive money starting in the Facebook app itself (with some caveats, which we'll get to shortly).
There comes a time in a cowboy or cowgirl's life when all the riding and lassoing skills in the world aren't enough. You're going to need some cold, hard cash to keep your sky zoo expanding in Rodeo Stampede.
Alas, until you really get the hang of being both an ace animal tamer and a zoo tycoon, you're probably going to find your virtual pocket empty on occasion. It can't be helped, because the main ways for earning coins are completing missions and opening your sky zoo to the public, and both have their limits.
The thing about dance crazes is that you're never really sure when they've run their course. Take the Dab, for instance. Propelled by its adoption as the touchdown celebration of choice for Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, the Dab seemed like it was so 2015.
And then Can You Dab? came out and suggested that maybe we shouldn't shovel dirt on the Dab's grave just yet. This insanely simple game has seen quite a swell in popularity since its release, even though there's really not that much to it.
One could be forgiven for thinking that there are already plenty of streaming video apps out there. It's just that the App Store charts would insist that you're mistaken.
The recently released live.ly by musical.ly has shot straight to number one in the U.S., suggesting that there's room for another player in this segment after all. What is it offering that's different? That's what we're here to help with, as we dig into how to get started with live.ly and "broadcast your life as it happens."
But how can you be sure you've conquered everything the Savannah has to offer? We've played enough Rodeo Stampede that we can help answer that question for you. Follow our guide to the first environment you need to master and you'll be ready to tackle even more challenges before too long.
So you've sunken plenty of hours into crawling around in slither.io on your iPhone or iPad. You've got your stories of tragedy and triumph, the times you coiled four snakes at one time balanced out by the others when you had a length of more than 30,000 and some little jerk swerved in front of you at the last second.
You've even followed our adviceand practiced the art of self-sacrifice so that you can play with a friend, since the ability to choose your own server still hasn't made it into the game yet. But let's say you have other mates without iOS devices? Is there a way to play with them too?
In Rodeo Stampede, honing your skills so you can jump from animal to animal and outrun the herd as long as possible is only half the fun. Once you've tamed a few animals, you can bring them home with you.
To live in your floating zoo in the sky, of course! We're not even making that up.
