It's odd but this somewhat simplistic adventure game works quite well as a replayable speed run.

For as long as games have existed, we’ve been using them to test our reflexes. Pretty much every game tests how fast the player reacts, whether it be mentally or physically. In the case of Finger Splatter, it tests the player’s ability to avoid a finger squashing hammer.

A free app, Finger Splatter is very simple but compelling nonetheless. 40 levels of increasing speed consistently test the player as they attempt to avoid the mighty hammer destroying their hand. At first it’s no great challenge but it’s not long before it’s a mad race for survival.

Finger Splatter is the kind of game that’s ideal for those short breaks throughout the day, especially when stress relief is needed! Game Center support offers 10 achievements while score sharing can be done via Twitter, Facebook and e-mail keeping the competitive spirit alive and well amongst friends.

Finger Splatter is out now and it’s free to download.

Speeding onto an iOS device this Winter is Need For Speed: The Run, the iOS version of the popular console racing game.

As expected, players will find themselves in a race from San Francisco to New York across five distinctive parts of the US. There’ll be speed races through the desert alongside careful drifting around tight corners. Numerous real-world stock cars will be on offer with upgrades to speed, acceleration and handling all possible.

Healthy competition between friends will be encouraged with Autolog support keeping track of how each player performs. As a fan of the system on consoles, it’s an immensely addictive service. Who can resist challenging their friends after all? There will also be Origin support, a common trend with recent EA titles.

Take a look at the screenshots and gameplay trailer below. Need For Speed: The Run is looking pretty luscious indeed. It’s out sometime this Winter.

So called twitch gaming, reacting quickly to a situation within a game, is often quite satisfying. It doesn’t need fancy graphics or detailed storytelling, it simply needs an addictive form of gameplay to entice. Tap Maze hopes to do exactly that by testing both the player’s reactions and their reasoning.

It’s a free to download universal game that requires players to move a small white ball to the goal of each level while avoiding the obstacles within each stage. Often these obstacles move around so Tap Maze is frequently far from an easy game to complete.

As the screenshots show, the mazes within each level get increasingly complex thus requiring fast reactions indeed. Tap Maze might lack the graphical finesse of some titles but it certainly hopes to make up for this with challenge. It looks ideal for both a quick session or an extended play.

Tap Maze is out now for all iOS devices as it’s an universal app. Check out the launch trailer below.

Speed is everything in this rapidly moving world. Social networking demonstrates that ably. Providing brief but concise information is just as important but it’s not always easy to sum something up while keeping all the pertinent information in there. Enter Trimit which hopes to rectify that problem.

It’s the first of its kind – an app that automatically summarizes and condenses information. It does so by using an incredibly complicated and impressive algorithm to ‘trim’ text to any specified length. All the relevant information is in there, it’s just taken out all the fluff.

The app allows for users to set filters, add acronyms, abbreviations or shorten URLs. Even the ability to remove vowels is in there if the user so wishes, although the one-time English student in me isn’t so sure about that!

Text can be simply imported from any URL and the results then shared via email, SMS, Facebook, Twitter, printed or saved as a txt file for future reference.

It’s impressive stuff indeed.

Check out the video that demonstrates Trimit in action.

It’s available now priced at $0.99 for a limited time only, with a regular price of $4.99 in the future.
