+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Rob Rich on August 6th, 2013
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar ::
Box of Enigmas is a decent collection of brain-training mini-games that could stand to have its controls tweaked and pay structure completely overhauled.

By Jordan Minor on November 27th, 2012
This new platformer from the mind of the mind of Paul Frank checks all the boxes but without much creativity.

War of the Worlds Receives 12th and Final Minigame, Celebrates With Sale

It feels like it's been ages since I first set eyes upon Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds Minigame Adventure. Back then it consisted of a mere two games. Now the last of them have been added, bringing the total up to the initially promised twelve.

It makes for an extensive collection of mini-genres, from the "find the item" graphical adventure style of the Prequel through the old-school puzzle gameplay of The Red Weed (Part 1) and ultimately drawing to a close with the arcade-like viral infection of Dead London. It's a collection that I'd easily recommend to fans of H.G. Wells' classic tale for the typical going rate of $5. However, in celebration of Minigame Adventure's completion the price is getting a temporary 60% price cut for the weekend (2/3 - 2/5).

It should go without saying that being able to grab a collection of a dozen well-made, War of the Worlds-themed mini-games for $2 is significant. Even if it should, I feel the need to reiterate it. Both for dramatic purposes and because it would be foolish for fans of the novel/movies to pass this up. So here I go: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds Minigame Adventure, a title which offers twelve mini-games, is currently on sale for $2. It's a ridiculously good deal, and one that I'd recommend jumping on before it's over.

Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: WHAT?
Wicket - The Beginning has all the trappings of a clever rpg-lite inspired task management game. Save the lack of any real point, that is.

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Will on August 14th, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: CREATIVE GENIUS
Gomi, a game in which you rid the world of pollution by rolling around and eating it, is a highly creative game with a bevy of content. Such a great value is rarely seen on the App Store.
