Got a few minutes to kill? Why not spend it flipping some switches up and down? For most people, the prospect of flipping switches up and down for fun probably doesn't sound very entertaining. Bread Engine, makers of the iOS game Switch Frenzy, beg to differ.

In this game, a set of five switches appear on screen and brightly colored arrows direct whether each switch should be flipped up or down. A blue arrow means the switch should be flipped in the direction the arrow is pointing. A red arrow means that the switch should be flipped in the opposite direction. This may sound simple enough, but when there are several different switches lighting up on screen at once things can get hectic. Other switches need to be held down or flipped multiple times, which adds to the frenzy.

With each successful switch, a bonus button is filled. Once full it can be pressed for an increased score multiplier. There is a classic survival mode where players see how long they can last without flipping a switch the wrong way, and a time attack mode where players see how many switches the can correctly flip in two minutes. In both cases the action is intense and fingers will fly while trying to get to each switch in time. Multi-touch comes in handy here as it quickly becomes necessary to flip several switches at the same time.

Achievement and leaderboards (with Game Center integration) make getting that high score all the more important. This is the kind of game that will keep friends competing back and forth in pursuit of higher and higher scores.

The beautiful minimalism of this game makes it the perfect way to spend a few spare minutes, but don't be surprised if a few minutes turn into a few more, and a few more...

E3 Wrap-up: F.A.S.T., a Combat Flight Simulator from SGN

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 17th, 2009

F.A.S.T. from SGN is a very different game that this developers usual offerings. They are best known for the MMOs such as Agency Wars (App Info) and Mafia: Respect and Retaliation (App Info) as well as their Wii-like sports games like SGN Golf (App Info) and iBowl (App Info).

F.A.S.T. stands for Fleet Air Superiority Training and is a really killer arcade flight simulator. The game supports both single player and up to 4 players in dogfight mode over wifi.

There are multiple unlockable planes all the way up to the B2 Stealth bomber. As you progress in the missions, and beat them in under the required time, you will unlock planes which will give you more power for successive levels.

Once the app is updated to take advantage of in-app purchasing in OS 3.0, expect many more purchasable missions and equipment.

The game looks impressive, is very responsive, but the controls take a little getting used to. Take a look at the trailer below for a better idea of the furious gameplay.

Priced at the higher end for a game, $9.99, F.A.S.T. is available now. A lite version with only one plane is planned.

Crazy Drops

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Christine Morris on March 16th, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: AVERAGE
This app is a take on the Tetris variation. You have to connect 4 or more drops of the same colour and the levels are grouped into 'ages of planets' so Precambrian to Cenozoic. Which makes for nice visuals in this game.

Time Crisis Strike

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad
By Chris Hall on February 26th, 2009
Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: MEDIOCRE
Time Crisis Strike is a mediocre port of an arcade gaming classic. It does possess decent graphics and relatively good controls, but the lack of a story, bonus weapons, and those big arcade guns make the game become quite stale.
