Getting bored of cutting up fruit? Tired of butchering berries, lacerating lemons, puncturing pineapples, whacking watermelons, slicing strawberries and nicking nectarines? Yeah, I didn’t think so. But it is nice to change things up every now and again, if even for a little while. That’s why we have games like Monster Warrior.

Bunnies are in trouble and the only way to protect them from the horrible (yet also cute and fuzzy) monsters is by cutting said monsters into little bits with a swipe of a finger. In four different game modes, including Arcade, Freestyle, Survival and Task. With Game Center achievements and leaderboards. Yessir, that’s the best way to save those bunnies. Cutting up fuzzy things and achievement-mongering.

This little slicing gem is available in the App Store for $0.99 right now. Just in time for Halloween. Well okay, maybe it’s a little early for Halloween, but it’s never a bad time for monster slicing.

I don’t exactly hate bugs, I just don’t like having them in my home. Unless they’re a pet. No really, we used to own a giant millipede. His name was Oscar. Anyway, if one does get in, I generally try to usher it back outside by way of a glass and a piece of paper, but sometimes I have no choice but to squash ‘em. For anyone who isn’t a weirdo bug-lover like me, there’s Dirty Bugs, a cartoony bug-punching game by Foggy Studio.

The game itself is a simple one, not unlike some of the most successful App Store titles: swipe all over the screen to swat down bugs, but make sure not to let any get by and don’t hit the bombs. Swatting down insects will cause them to go from happy little bugs with bright, smiling faces to bugs that look like they just went ten rounds with a heavyweight boxer. It’s a cute touch.

At the moment there’s only one “farm,” but there’s the promise of more (farms, bugs, etc.) in the future. Those interested in smacking some creepy-crawlies can check out Dirty Bugs right now for free.

Get Ready to Dust Those Bunnies!

To arms! The battle for cleanliness has begun anew, and it’s up to us to do our part in this war. Dust bunnies are everywhere; clogging up vacuums, massing under beds and waiting for the perfect time to strike. I say we need to strike first. We as a people need to band together and Dust Those Bunnies!

Okay, it’s a little campy but this game looks fun. From the minds of Utah-based Gamers Rejoice, Dust Those Bunnies! puts players in charge of some of the most devastating anti-dust weaponry (brooms, vacuum cleaners, etc.) and lets them loose the dogs of war all over the little buggers. It boasts two game modes, Wage War and Commando, both requiring players to sweep those dusty critters into a dustpan for victory. Wage War is more like a “full” game, with access to a full arsenal and the threat of dustpan-destroying bunny bombs. Commando is a bit less strenuous, with no bombs but also none of the fancy stuff found in Wage War. It’s just the player, a broom and the bunnies.

It’s too soon to predict whether or not Dust Those Bunnies! will find itself on a notable page in the App Store anytime soon, but it certainly looks to be doing its part. The black and white film reel visuals are a cute touch, too. Be sure to give it a look.
