Exactly. I don't find Beat Sneak Bandit to look appealing to me even though I loved Bumpy Road.

Were there any game releases last night that people would consider must-haves or really good quality games? When I took a peek at the threads, I didn't see anything that interested me, but it's possible that I missed something.

BlockHopper is a really awesome puzzle platformer. It has it's issues but the pros definitely outweigh the cons. I left a moderate impression in the thread.

Pizza vs. Skeletons is awesome! I don't really have anything else to add to all the praise it's getting in its thread. Well, besides the tilt haters.

Little Acorns is pretty good.

Track Lapse is pretty awesome. It's a runner that has levels like DRWAPS. It's actually really cool because it's different. I'd suggest watching Sanuku's vid to get a feel of the gameplay. Then multiply the awesomeness by about 10. There's things like shooting a zombie and its brain flies out, then you have to jump over it. The speed isn't your typical runner speed but it's more of a challenge based runner.

I definitely recommend Dave vs Cave if you like avoid falling object games like Blocks Cometh. I keep calling it a shmup without the firepower because I can't think of the genre's name. It's just fun…that's all there is to it. I left a pretty hefy impression in its thread. Also, watch the vid. If it interests you in the slightest, you need to pick up the game.


On the Hop crashes too much for me to give a good opinion. From what I played, it was alright. It's definitely more about the level challenge over fancy shmancy level design. The graphics do look real nice though.

I don't really know how I feel about Beat Sneak Bandit.

Gluddle looks like an awesome puzzler, but there's a memory bug right now. Sanuku posted a video though.

I assume you know about LoE 2.

I think that's everything. Maybe get Mailmen if you have an iPad.

SZC will prolly be great too. It's supposed to come out this week. Some are hoping for a universal release today.

Thank you, I checked both of those and didn't see anything that piqued my interest, which is why I posted here.

Favorite app of all time - Dungeon Raid

Definitely having more fun with Little Acorns than LoE2. If you're a fan of platformers..

Needless to say, Pizza Vs. Skeletons is the most fun I've had with any game for a long time.

Hi guys!

The bug only concerns iPad 1 and iPod Touch 4, all the other supported devices work fine. The fix is ready (took longer than expected unfortunately) and we're testing it right now. Then hopefully we can push it through Apple's review as quickly as possible so that it will be available within 24 hours!

So if you have an iPad2 or iPhone 4(s) or whatever, go get it!!

Btw: thanks for all your feedback - we would really like to hear from you - the good, the bad and the funny ;-)

You may want to try the Antrim Escape series.
