Tiny Owls Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
By Dale Culp on August 7th, 2012
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: LOTS OF HEART
Players are invited to touch and tilt their way through challenging levels as a mama owl searching for her lost babies. It may be cute and cuddly, but this game can definitely give gamers a workout!

Rescue Felines from Impending Doom in Cats Away

Posted by Rob Rich on June 11th, 2012

When a super nova threatens a planet full of cats (multiple planets, actually), the self-appointed task of saving them falls on a pair of big-hearted extraterrestrials. The duo will have to hop from world to world, gathering as many kitties as they can before the time limit runs out. Then doing it again, of course. Because CATS, people. Because cats.

The gameplay functions as a sort of weird combination of gravity-based claw machine meets incremental in-game improvements found in titles like Katamari Damacy. The ship’s tractor beam can only pick up the smaller felines at first, but after enough of them are carried off it gains strength and can be used to lift much larger targets. Coins earned through play can be used to buy new ships or upgrade a specific one, while stars acquired through achievement-like progress will unlock new worlds. And there are always special hidden kitties to find and (hopefully) rescue.

The US release of Cats Away should be out sometime around the end of June/beginning of July and $0.99 is all that’s needed to secure this universal iOS cat carrier.
