    Save the world . . . from Atomic Aliens!

    Saturday, January 14, 2012

    Atomic Aliens is the first release from Touch  Junky.  The story?  Well aliens are attacking and it’s your job to save the world.  Game play is your basic “Whack-a-mole” type game where you tap the aliens to kill them (some take more than one tap to kill….) that gets more intense as the game progresses.  The game has a couple of twists. You have shields which you can place using taps near the planet you’re trying to protect to block the lasers from the enemies.  The more damage your planet takes the more likely it is to blow up, so using your shields and taps,...

    Turkeys Revenge — Shoot a Pilgrim!

    Friday, November 25, 2011

    Turkeys Revenge is a clever adaptation of the fair midway Shoot the Duck game. In this game, you, the turkey are the hunter. Armed with a gun that shoots candy corn, you tap your target to shoot, or drag the site to “ping” your target. Complete with that midway pellet on metal target ping, your targets fall backwards and your points rack up. The game increases in difficulty by increasing the number of pilgrims and the number of trees that they can hide behind, but there is little variability otherwise. The game is free but does contains ads. Info iTunes link:http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/turkeys-revenge/id481579390?ls=1&mt=8 Price:FreeCategory:GamesDeveloper:Omnigeek...

    All about pumpkins

    Tuesday, October 25, 2011

    All about pumpkins is a simple and well done educational title aimed for the elementary and pre-school crowd.  Using a simple “Touch to Advance” interface, any one can browse through the program. Each slide contains relevant photos and text that takes us through the process of the lifecycle of a pumpkin.  As each slide plays, a girl’s voice narrates the slide, reading the text on the screen.  The narration is exceptional and very well could have been done by a professional voice actress. The choice of photos is pretty good to illustrate the pumpkin’s lifecycle. ...

    All a-buzz about Necta Collecta

    Saturday, October 15, 2011

    Welcome to the meadow.  You’re job, young bee is to collect nectar from all the pretty wild flowers.  But you should only gather nectar from one type of flower to make it easier to collect.  Buzz around, pick up nectar, score lots of points and earn coins. The game uses the concept that each flower’s nectar sticks together better if you only collect from one flower type.  I uses this to make you have to hunt for the right pattern of flowers to hop from one to the next making sure to get them all and not trap yourself to where you can’t get to an uncollected flower. Using simple...

Goop! A fun game without sling shots!

IconRounded512x512

I don’t know about you, but I’m just a little bit tired of Angry Birds knock offs.  Bird games, pig games, sling shots, oh my. Now to give Angry Birds it’s credit, it was cute.  There was a very annoying bad guy. We were allowed to be mad.  Music enhances the game as does the […]
