Lots of fresh new content this week at 148Apps.com, including a three part series tracking the history and development of Firemint’s Real Racing series. Rob Rich writes, “The soon to be released Real Racing 3 is on a lot of iOS gamers’ minds these days, especially many of us here at 148Apps. Because of this we thought it would be a good idea to recap the series. In fact, we might have gone a bit beyond that and created a trilogy. First we’ll be taking a look at the series’ history and the history of Firemint, the Melbourne based studio that created the series. After that we’ll be taking a look at the design factors and what when into creating the first two Real Racing titles as well as a little of the third. And in the third part of this series, we’ll take a look at the new Time Shifted Multiplayer found in Real Racing 3.”

GiggleApps.com traded in the racing wheel for a stethoscope, as Amy Solomon reviewed Doctor Cat: “Doctor Cat is a cute children’s app allowing users to use different medicines to treat animals.

This app is bright and colorful, with a simple and sweet narrative about a cat finding a lost doctor’s bag and using its contents to treat creatures in need.”

And we close out our weekly tour of sites by checking in on the latest KickStarter spotlight on AndroidRundown.com. Joseph Bertolini writes, “It is amazing how many times I leave my phone in the car or forget to bring my keys out with me. Consolidating these two would be a dream and there are a few solutions available but their effectiveness is very questionable. One of the more complete and involved KickStarter projects that we have spotlit here, Intellacase is a smartphone case that incorportes within it a key fab for any modern car with keyless entry. While this does nothing for most car owners who still reside in the land of metallic gateways, a growing number of affordable cars are adopting the keyless ignition as a viable offering. Certainly for anyone who has a car that utilizes keyless technology this is an incredibly attractive opportunity. Image going out on the town, with the increasing prevalence of NFC payments, and being able to bring just a phone which has access to both wallet and car access.”

UFHO2 Needs Your Help

One of the more interesting developments of the last few years has been the introduction of using a website such as Kickstarter.com in order to raise funds for an independent game’s development.  One such game that is need of a little aid is UFHO2, a puzzle game from small Italian developer Tiny Colossus.  Based off of the studio’s short lived online experience, UFHO, the sequel is hoping to bring the title’s unique brand of brain busting to the masses.

The project is already a quarter of the way to its final goal and needs to raise another few thousand in funds before February 11th.  Once that has been reached, the game will kick up into full production, targeting the iOS platform and primarily the iPad.  Here is the development team’s elevator pitch for the game:

If you would like to pitch in to help the cause, you can take a look at UFHO2′s Kickstarter page and contribute whatever you see fit.  Who knows? It might just be a classic in the making.
