Bitless Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Should gameplay always come before graphics? Bitless, a hardcore, hyper-addictive platformer, certainly makes a good case for it.

Everyone’s messed around with building bocks in some form or another at some point in their life. Everyone. It’s kind of a universal thing. Which is a big reason as to why I’m somewhat amazed that very few people have attempted to merge the concept with interactive design. It’s one of those ideas that doesn’t seem obvious until someone comes up with it. And Boldai came up with it.

Blocksworld is, in essence, a set of virtual building blocks. Structures can be cobbled together, tiny people can be crafted, and all manner of impossible creations can appear with a few taps and flicks. But simply creating a thing is only the beginning. Once that mutant frog or towering skyscraper is complete, it can be brought to life or used as an asset in an animated movie or even video game. This is because it’s more than just a sandbox, it’s an incredibly easy to use toolset for creative types.

Any iOS user can open up Blocksworld and create whatever their imagination can come up with. Then they can use it to create their own action movie or turn it into a game, then they can share it with the world on the official website. Or Twitter and Facebook, of course. The tools are rudimentary but the sky is indeed the limit.

Blocksworld is still in beta but is expected to release later this summer. There’s no official word on pricing yet but users will be able to purchase additional content packs (prices also TBD) in order to bolster their creative arsenal.

NOM 5 Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
NOM 5 is every bit as nonsensical and surreal as the original, but that's about all it has going for it.

Kometen Review

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
Kometen is extremely pretty, but it just doesn't do much. If you are expecting an action packed experience, look elsewhere, but if pretty and simple are your cup of tea, this one is great.

iQuarterback

iPhone App - Designed for the iPhone, compatible with the iPad
This game is about as addicting as it gets for a $0.99 app, but is quite limited in its play options. There aren't many cheap games that are a better value in the iTunes store, but iQuarterback will certainly leave you longing for more.

EDGE is a stylishly simplistic platformer in which you navigate a series of dynamic levels, trying to guide your cube to the end. It's a challenging game, but a rewarding one, and the latest update adds plenty of new value—seventeen levels worth, to be exact.
