Top 5 iPhone Games for March

banner2

As 2015 marches on (see what I did there?), we are treated to some excellent new games for the iPhone and iOS devices. Check out DailyAppShow’s roundup of top picks for the month of March below.


Flop Rocketfloprocket

Flop Rocket brings some interesting new twists to the increasingly popular propulsion scroller games (Think Jetpack Joy Ride, ALONE, Daddy Long Legs, etc). With Flop Rocket, you control the direction and thrust of your spaaaaaaaace rocket in a precarious, danger-filled cave (why is a space ship in a cave? The devs have an answer for you, “GOOD QUESTION”), collecting coins,  completing objectives, and avoiding collisions with…well anything. Your rocket is rather delicate, so smash into one thing and you’ll be fine, smash into another, GIANT FIRY EXPLOSION!

Check out Flop Rocket on the App Store for the cool price of $free.


Magic Touch: Wizard for Hiremagictouchssmagictouch

Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire is one of those advanced twitch games. You control a wizard (what, the name didn’t give that away?) that uses spells to eliminate enemies that are floating down at you. Each enemy has a balloon with a shape on it. In order to pop that balloon and bring the enemy crashing down to earth, you must draw the shape before they land. As you might expect, the game starts slow enough, with just a single enemy on screen at a time. But don’t worry, soon enough you’ll get your fingers in a not trying to perform all the swipes and swishes required. The enemies themselves also scale up, in addition to the single spell ones, you also get enemies with a series of maneuvers to accomplish to bring down, or bosses with particularly complicated swipes.

Magic Touch: Wizard for Hire is free on the App Store.


Block Amokblockamok

I’m gonna have a tough time explaining this one. You…play a sheep…on a circular train track…with a cannon. What do you do with that cannon? Knock down wooden structures, of course. Your staging area is the inside of your train track wherein ever more complicated structures pop out of the floor for you to knock down with your limited amount of cannon ammo. As you collect coins for doing your deed and accomplishing various challenges, you can purchase power ups, more skilled sheep, and fancier vehicles.

Check out Block Amok on the App Store.


Okay?IMG_4272okay

Okay? Okay. Okay? is a fantastically simple, intriguing, and yet frustratingly difficult. The premise is simple: fling a ball around the field and bounce off of every white object before the ball flies off the edges of your screen. But as you might expect, a simple premise equals some very difficult times ahead. You play with a single finger, touch to place the ball, drag to set the direction, and hope your planned path is the right one, touching every element you need. Two additions I was happy to see in this game that many (most) similar games often lack: you can cancel your shot by dragging back to your ball’s origin, and a 90º lock for directions, which means you can direct your ball perfectly vertical or horizontal.

Okay? is free on the App Store.


Alto’s Adventurealto

I saved the best for last: Alto’s Adventure. This author has already sunk far more time than he is willing to admit in the few days since Alto’s Adventure was released to the world. You start out in the game playing as Alto, an avid skier who is trying to get his llamas back. With a single tap, you jump and flip as you ski down slopes littered with obstacles, creatures, and power ups. The most compelling reason that Alto’s Adventure keeps you coming back time and time again is the leveling system. Each level requires you complete three challenges during your trip down the mountain, and as you gain levels, you unlock more playable characters with unique skills. Alto’s Adventure also happens to be one of the most gorgeous games out today, rivaling the lauded Monument Valley in terms of sheer beauty, and near-perfect performance and playability.

Alto’s Adventure is $1.99 on the App Store, and it’s worth that price many times over.

Five Products That Are Way Too High Tech

Technology these days has invaded almost every part of our lives, whether we like it or not. Even our refrigerators are WiFi enabled.

Some things probably don’t need to be “connected” or high-tech. This author personally feels that the following items definitely fit comfortably in that category. Let’s do it: [Read more…]
