Dodonpachi Resurrection - Dodonpachi might be hard to roll off the tongue, but the game play is very familiar. This is a flying shooter in the ever popular R-Type style. Your ship resides at the bottom of the screen and you blast everything reigning down on you from the top of the screen. Was R-Type to simple for your gaming masochistic pleasures? Try your hand at this sadistic bullet fest.
NOTE this app is designed for iPhone 3GS/iPhone 4/iPad/iTouch 3rd Gen.

Epic Citadel - That’s right, Epic’s little tech demo has made the list of apps you need to put on your iPhone/iPod/iPad. We saw a bit of this at the Apple press conference this week. This app does away with the battles, but gives you the castle to freely roam around in. Why you need this app: IT IS FRICKING GORGEOUS. There is no other game on the App Store than will blow your mind like this.

The Settlers HD - The Settlers HD takes mid-evil strategy games and sexily throws it onto your iPad. Build a town, amass an army, and prove you have the bigger finger of doom. There is plenty to do and hours of play tucked away here. Any fan of strategy games should not pass this one by.

Fly Delta - What could be easier than checking into your flight while on your way to the airport? Delta has kicked out an app that will allow you to check-in to your flight, check the flight status, store your parking location, and even access your boarding pass. It is great to see airlines making use of the iPhone. This headache saving app is free.

NASA App HD - The NASA app has finally made its way to the iPad. NASA App HD will allow you to see NASA videos, browse through thousands of images from NASA IOTD, APOD, and You can also have fun tracking the ISS and share your favorite stories on Facebook and Twitter. That iPad screen was destined to view these lovely images from space. The app is free for your enjoyment.
