World Chef invites you to manage your own restaurant on iOS and Android right now

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

World Chef is a brand new resource management game by SocialPoint, the experienced developer behind Dragon City and Monster Legends.

You'll create and manage every aspect of your own restaurant, from naming it to hiring professional chefs. Then, once you've turned a profit, you can use it to purchase decorations and hire the most talented chefs from across the world.

Chefs will trade the finest ingredients with their friends, which unlocks brand new dishes you can serve to your customers. Satisfy these and your restaurant's fame will increase which can, eventually, lead to visits from esteemed celebrities.

Develop a rapport with these celebrities and you can hold an exclusive party for them in your dedicated event space - the pool-party area.

If you find yourself running low on resources, you can connect with your friends on Facebook, Game Center, or Google Play Services, and trade ingredients to give you a boost.

To date, a fair few restaurant simulators have had a time management focus where you're trying to serve as many customers as possible to a strict time limit. That's not the focus of World Chef though. It's, instead, all about creating the most prestigious restaurant you can.

If you've got a hankering to build your own restaurant, why not check out World Chef. It's available from the App Store [download] or Google Play [download]right now.

Bio Inc., by DryGin Studios, is the real time strategy game where you infect a human body with the worst virus your evil brain can design. Recently, the game was updated to add a whole lot of new features. Now you can play the new “Lethal” difficulty, which chakllenges even hardcore players.

And if you manage to beat all the levels you'll be in for a benevolant treat - you can change your dark hearted ways and try to save John Smith on the last stage. This time an AI is infecting the poor sod and it is your job to try to stop it. Can you heal him in time?

SimplePlanes, from the Makers of SimpleRockets, is Now Available on the App Store

Do you have fond memories of playing SimpleRockets? Well, maybe "fond" is the wrong word. I mean those things are awfully prone to blowing up. But anyway, if you have a special place in your heart set aside for the madcap rocket-building sim, you should probably make room for the follow-up that just released on the App Store: SimplePlanes.

Much like SimpleRockets, SimplePlanes tasks you with engineering a very complex piece of machinery, then trying to keep it in one piece. This time you'll be snapping various parts together to make all sorts of aircraft - even some with VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) abilities. Where it gets ridiculous (in a good way) is in how pieces of your craft can break off as you crash into things or get shot at, which can have a pretty big impact on performance.

If you're in the mood to fly seemingly impossible aircraft that you've cobbled together yourself, you can grab SimplePlanes off the App Store now for $1.99.

Hatchi 2: Tips, Tricks, and Strategies on Keeping Your Virtual Offspring Happy

Hey there, virtual animal lovers:
Want to know what we liked about this virtual pet sim, and maybe a little of what we didn't like so much? Check out our Hatchi 2 review!

So, you’ve downloaded Hatchi 2 and you feel in need of some guidance when it comes to what to do next? Don’t worry! We’re here to help with some general tips and tricks on how best to care for your delightful little pet.

Basic Maintenance



The key is to make sure you keep your pet (or pets) happy and alive. Fortunately, it’s not too hard to do. Four things keep them happy enough.
  • Cleanliness - Keep your pet clean whenever their hygiene bar drops. This is just a matter of tapping the shower button then ‘scrubbing’ the pet with one finger. It’ll take a few seconds and your pet will be much happier afterwards. This is particularly worth doing after they’ve had a bathroom break.
  • Hunger - Feeding your pet is easy. Pick a type of food and drag it in front of their mouth. The pet will happily munch away at it and be all the cheerier for it. Most food is the same, but experimenting will feel more personal.
  • Energy Levels - Like all of us, your pet needs sleep and plenty of it. Make sure you send them to sleep sometimes. There’s a useful tip here for multiple pets, too. Whichever pet you leave active is your dominant pet, meaning the others can be left alone without their bars decreasing. It’s worth remembering so you don’t have to juggle quite so many needs at once.
  • Happiness - Happiness is boosted by playing games. We’ll go more into depth with that later, but remember that it doesn’t take long to play a quick game of something and it makes all the difference to your pet’s happiness levels.

Is Real Racing not real enough for you? How about a game where you can drive cars, buses, and trucks in accordance with local statutes to try and get your license? Then that's what School Driving 3D will offer for you. Stop at train crossings! Wait for pedestrians! Safely overtake other cars! Use your blinker and obey all the rules! Awwwwwwwww yyyyyyyyeeeeahhhhh.

School Driving 3D's only unrealistic aspect? It's free, unlike real driving school.
