Raiding Company:
Raiding company allows players to experience the game on their own, or make it better by adding in up to three additional friends to the fray. The goal in this frantic top-down shooter is to blast as many mummies as possible. Players will battle one another in a race for better loot, thus resulting in bigger and deadlier weaponry. The catch is that the challenges get tougher as the loot gets better. This game just may test the bonds of friendship.

iStunt 2:
iStunt 2 puts players on some wickedly deadly snowboarding courses. In order for players to survive, they will need to perform daring stunts, dodge razor sharp saws, and make insanely crazy jumps. There are 42 levels for gamers to test their mad skills on. The sky is the limit with this game.

Smoody may contain bright and cute visuals, but there is a mind boggling puzzle game tucked behind this lovely façade. It will take lots of thinking and creativity to conquer the 80 stages in this physics based puzzle game. All players have to do is make it to the black hole to win each stage. How hard can that possibly be?

Mini Golf Scoring:
As hard as it may be for some to believe, warm weather is just around the corner. This brings on an abundance of Mini Golf courses finally opening up for another season of golfing fun. This app will take those days on the mini course to the next level. Players can track their course scores, take photos, and use geo-tracking to mark where the best courses are. The best part of this app is that it allows users to post scores and brag on their Facebook walls. Bring on the smack talk!

Runner’s injuries: Prevention and treatment:
If runners have not hit the streets yet, they soon will be. This also means running injuries will be on the rise. Those runners who want a little help preventing or treating their injuries have a lot of useful information in this app. Not only is there an abundance of running related information on common injuries, but the high quality video included in the app will help runners prevent further injuries. Add to this helping runners get better at their sport, and you have an extremely useful tool. If you run, you want this app!
