Letterpress by atebits takes the App Store by storm

Posted by Jason Diaz Categories: Games, iPad Apps, $0.99, Free Apps,

Letterpress iOS AppLetterpress App

If you like games like Words with Friends and Draw Something, then you're going to get addicted to Letterpress. The game creator is none other than Atebits; the maker of the wildly successful Tweetie app, which Twitter ended up buying. The game centers around random letters displayed in grids, with the objective of making words out of letters. Sounds simple enough, however, the game becomes increasingly more complex as your opponent has the ability steal letters, thus, altering the score. The game ends when the colors on four sides becomes solid.

Letterpress is Game Center-ready and is a universal binary app, which means it works with all iOS devices natively. The best part is that the game is free to play, but for an extra 99 cents, you can add more functionality such as the ability to keep a record of words previously used, choose new color themes, and have a bunch of games going at once. We highlight recommend it.

Cover Orange review

Posted by Patrick Lambert Categories: Games, iPad Apps, Reviews, $0.99,

Last month a little gem popped unnoticed on the App Store named Cover Orange. Following a recent promotion giving away the game for free, it has now reached the top 10 list on iTunes. The premise is for you to move from level to level, protecting oranges from acid rain. The first thing you notice is how similar this one is to Angry Birds, from the way the levels are made, to the physics properties that the gameplay relies on. In this case, instead of throwing birds offensively, you have to protect your oranges from the nasty clouds and their acid rain.

Both the graphics and sounds are amazing, with the oranges themselves thanking you for saving them. The animations are excellent, with everything flowing nicely from one sequence to the next. Solving physics puzzles is the meat of the game, and you get access to various objects to try and cover your oranges with, like barrels and wheels, by interacting with the other items on the level. High scores are linked to the Game Center, but it's just a lot of fun solving each level. The controls are extremely simple, you simply grab objects and let them drop where you want, and watch how they interact with the level.

The game costs $0.99 and is available for iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. It comes with 120 levels, 40 of them being new as of the latest update. The video trailer shows the game well, and at this price, it really is a must have.
