+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Our rating: starstarstarstarhalfstar :: PLAID!
Jack Lumber is a game that may involve slicing objects like Fruit Ninja, but actually requiures more thought and planning despite its silly story and theme.

Snuggle Truck Goes Free to Play, and Adds New Features

Posted by Carter Dotson on November 15th, 2011
iPad App - Designed for iPad

Snuggle Truck, Owlchemy Labs' iOS version of their game Smuggle Truck which initially served as a piece of wry social commentary on US immigration policy, has seen a great deal of content expansion recently. In particular, a custom level creator and sharing tools have been made available on both the iPad and iPhone versions of the game. While several hundred levels have been shared through the game, in an attempt to expand the audience, Snuggle Truck is now free to play as of the 1.6 update. Both the iPad and iPhone versions are now supported by IAP for a new truck, 5 new levels, extended powerup usage, and badges that can be shown off on the title screen, for the purpose of supporting the developers. The game has occasional ads that appear after levels for other apps, and these can be removed with the purchase of the $4.99 silver badge. Previous owners of Snuggle Truck need not fret; ads will automatically be disabled. As well, there is free DLC of 5 new levels, and a new "Freeze Time" powerup available for custom levels. The 1.6 update adding all these new features is available now.

    Five for Friday: Week of April 29, 2011

    Seamless provides a great service for those of you who like to rock out while getting ready to head out the door. What Seamless does is allow you to listen to your favorite songs in iTunes on your Mac, and then when you are ready to run out the door, yet you don’t want to stop your favorite song, you tap Seamless on your phone. What happens next is the song fades off your Mac and continues on your iPhone. No interruptions, no restarting a song, and no digging for the album. Perfect for those that wish to just keep on a rocking!

    Snuggle Truck:
    Snuggle Truck takes a physics-based driving game and ramps it up a few notches. You have a truck full of adorable animals that are in need of saving from extinction. In order to do this, you must traverse a world full of killer obstacles in order to deliver your payload to the zoo in as short of time as possible. The 40 levels are packed with challenging terrain that is beautifully rendered in a hand painted art style. Save the bunnies!!

    TriZen will challenge your tangram puzzle solving skills across 500 puzzles. If you are stuck, use the hint system to help you through the rough spots. You can also solve puzzles in any order you wish. Play as little or as much as you like, as the game will save your progress along the way. What better way to distress from a long hard day at work.

    RC Heli 2:
    Do you want to fly an RC helicopter but dread all the work of putting one together, not to mention that high cost of entry? RC Heli 2 has you covered! You can choose from three different helicopters or fly the coveted UFOs. Three different modes will give you plenty to do, including a bit of air combat. Who says you cannot have some fun flying your RC helicopters in the house?!?

    Have you ever seen those photos where people turn a normal panoramic image into a tiny planet? Now you can easy accomplish this task right on your iPhone. TinyWorld makes this task as simple as using the app to shoot your panoramic photo and then hitting one button to turn it into an amazing little world. It is so easy; you may never use a computer for this task again!
