Posted by Jennifer Allen on November 26th, 2015

It’s that time of year again, where you’ll be gathering around the dinner table with your family and a huge feast in front of you.

Unfortunately, your iPhone won’t cook the meal for you, but it can offer you some great apps for getting to grips with cooking and timings. Here’s the best of the bunch.

Christmas Thrills From Elf Rescue

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Christmas is creeping ever nearer. The decorations are up, the presents wrapped and under the tree, and there's that hopeful feeling for a White Christmas (at least in the UK where that doesn't happen often!). Why not celebrate such a festive season with the release of Elf Rescue?

Offering action-packed platforming puzzle fun, Elf Rescue is all about Aava the elf and dedicated Elf Rescue agent who must save Santa after a sleigh crash in the wilderness. Everything about Elf Rescue oozes Christmas spirit as players find themselves using Aava's jetpack to navigate the snowy scenery and the plentiful supply of balloons throughout. There's even the fearsome presence of the mysterious Sasquatch!

It looks like it'll be the ideal game for families to play together in the build up to Christmas. There's also the promise of new levels throughout 2012 included in the very reasonable price of $0.99.

Elf Rescue is out now and it's an Universal app.

Help Young People And Santa With JetPack Santa

Posted by Jennifer Allen on December 1st, 2011

Helping children through charitable causes is always a noble effort. It can be a fun effort too when it comes to games like JetPack Santa.

JetPack Santa has been designed as part of the UK charity Prince's Trust 'Million Maker Challenge 2011' project. It's an initiative dedicated to raising money to help young people get back into work in deprived areas across the United Kingdom. As anyone who's experienced the job market around the world recently, it's tough out there, and young people need all the help they can get. The Prince's Trust does precisely that.

Developed by volunteers at Hewlett Packard and in partnership with the Serious Games Institute at Coventry University, JetPack Santa isn't just a honorable purchase to make. It's also a fun and seasonal game with Santa needing to fly around the world to deliver presents to children. It's a great way to get into the festive spirit and help some deserving young people too.

It's out now for the iPad, priced at $1.99.
