Posted by Chris Nitz on October 22nd, 2010

Reckless Racing:
Missing the old days of top-down racing games, or just need a reason to play the Dukes of Hazzard theme song? EA’s Reckless Racing is all you need to get your fix of dirt track racing. The best part? You can test your driving skills in a truck painted with the obligatory flame paint job. Complete with five tracks, local Wi-Fi, online multiplayer, and leaderboards, this game will give you plenty to do while donning your bib overalls.

Samurai II: Vengeance:
MADFINGER Games takes your hack and slash skills into a gorgeous anime inspired world. The goal, help Daisuke get the revenge he longs to serve to his archenemy. Crazy awesome visuals are just the starting point here. Tense battles, improved gameplay from the original, environmental puzzles, and Game Center support all add to a fun and engaging slashing experience. Throw in a new survival mode and you have hours of fun at a low price.

Star Battalion:
Did you find that the space fight in Halo: Reach was just to darn short? Do you miss the days of Descent: Freespace? Gameloft has your fix with Star Battalion. This space combat game does not just stop with a simple single player experience though. Four ships, online co-op (thanks to local Wi-Fi and Bluetooth), and Game Center support all bring on the hours of fun and replayability of this title. It even looks fantastic to boot!

Ace Flashcards:
There was once a day where studying was done with index cards and long arduous hours under a desk lamp. Agile Partners is here to bring back those index cards for your iPhone. A built in dictionary will help you with word meanings. You can even create your own flash cards for just about any subject you can muster up. An easy to use interface keeps things simple so you can get to what is most important, studying!

Black Friday Survival Guide:
Halloween is just about to pass by, which means we will all soon be stuffing our faces with turkey, cranberries, and pies in preparation for one heck of a day. You know, Black Friday! Sazze has taken it upon themselves to assist you with all those early flyer leaks, deals, and shopping tasks during this maddening time. If your Friday after Thanksgiving plans include punching and kicking your way into stores at 4AM, this app just might help you in your attack plans.
