Tennis Slam!! and most recently added games

New game tennis slam added for 4.99. Seems like a very polished and cartoony tennis game. For only 5 bucks im tempted to buy it. Also, funky punch has been released, thanks to vegantnt for the heads up. Cybersaurus is available for the price of 6.99. If you recall this is the 3d dinosaur shooter that was available on installer. I personally think 6.99 is too much for this game, maybe polish it more and lower the price to 3 or 4 bucks. RocketMan out!!

Another one!! Code Breaker for 1.99, a copy of a puzzle game i dont remember the name of, but where you have to guess the sequence of colors that the computer generates, if i could remember the name you might actually understand me. Also, Amazing Sudoku, which looks to be the most polished of sudoku games. Only 2.99!! And one of the best looking apps in the app store, along with motion x poker. If you want a good sudoku game, get it.

Graphics are cute. Instructions are minimal. Tap on screen or shake the phone to hit the ball. It is like Wii tennis but eliminating the fun tennis swing of it. I don't think my actions actually affect anything besides timing the tap or shake.

Shaking the phone while looking at the game doesn't really work out well. So tapping on the screen repeatedly as the ball passes near your people appears to be the sum of the game.

Oh, no sound effects.

What's up with games coming out without sound effects? I can understand no music for some games, but no sound effects is really inexcusable. I know developers want to cash in on their hard work, but a lot of games are in bad need of polish before people are going to want to buy them in droves.

and liked it a little better than I did (I played it <15 mins), but still not really recommended. Video also posted.

The downside of an open market? But yeah, still waiting on that "fixes all the problems" update for Metal Angel.....
