Kill Em All!


Illusia is an Action/RPG platformer developed by Gamevil and is “free” for the next three days. Notice how I put the word “free” in bunny ears?  That is because the game still includes in-app purchases.  Honestly, though, what freaking iOS game nowadays doesn’t include in-app purchases?  Greedy bastards!  Anyway, you can still have a satisfying experience without having to shell out your hard-earned Washington’s.

From iTunes Description:

The makers of ZENONIA have extended to a new side scrolling casual action RPG containing all the core elements of traditional role playing games presented in visually appealing anime style graphics.

Explore through quests, refine your gear, and battle your way to unravel the secrets behind the mysterious tower of ILLUSIA that nobody has entered before!

Annihilate evil and preserve good, on your adventure of restoring peace to the land of Aztaran…

Look at those gorgeous sprites!

Ninja Pong

From iTunes Description:

In the specialized Ninja Master training one skill is extremely important.

The skill in Bouncing.

In the tough Ninja’s life full of spying, sabotage and infiltration there is always something to jump over. You have to stay focused and concentrated if you don’t want to fall dawn. It becomes more complicated if you’re a tiny Ninja with gigantic head and you have to deal with a precipice larger than you could have ever imagined!

Bounce over thousands of brave warriors just by touching the screen and moving your finger horizontally. Stay out of bombs and arrows. Catch all bonuses, special Ninjas and pass incredible Nights. With two gameplay modes, diverse lands, many achievements, different leaderboards and a lot of additional, unlockable content and gameplay modifications you will keep coming back to the addictive bouncing more often than you think! Lose yourself in Ninja Pong!

Glow Hockey 2

It is the simple things in life that bring me the most pleasure!  Wait, wtf am I talking about again?  Oh yeah, Glow Hockey 2 is a simple yet pleasantly addictive (yes, I know that word is WAY too overused in app lingo) game involving a virtual rendition of air hockey.

From iTunes Description:

+ Colorful glow graphics.

At least you don't have to worry about having your fingers crushed in this version!

Call of Mini: Double Shot

Finally, I bring you the little game that I love to hate and hate to love, Call of Mini: Double Shot.  You know what I hate?  It is when I pay full price for an app only to watch it be reduced to a free app the next day.  Well, that is exactly what happened with Call of Mini: Double Shot.  It seems as though they are now pursuing an in-app purchase business model.  I freaking hate in-app purchases!!!  What kind of gamer spends two bucks to get a more powerful gun in a video game?  I guess there are enough people out there that do, but it just seems illogical to me.  Despite the fact that this game pushes in-app purchases as many of the weapon upgrades are only available by paying for them, it is still an impressive little title.
