There are so many “clever” iPhone cases out there that are kind of silly, but as a Macintosh computer child I can’t help but really like this guy. Could do without the rainbow home button and iPhone logo on the back, but man, what an iconic shade of beige.

YOU GUYS. Indies Vlambeer have finally released their beloved arcade game Super Crate Box on iOS. If you want to experience tight, effective and FUN game design, I’m sure you can dish out the $0.99 (is that really it!?) to buy it.
My one complaint is that the d-pad isn’t spot-on in terms of player control (that stuff always seems to be tricky), but nevertheless the game is still a lot of fun.

Creator of Halycon and Bit Pilot, Zach Gage recently released his newest game for the iPad SpellTower, and it’s a total winner. Elegantly designed, this word game is reminiscent of Scrabble mixed with Tetris and feels great to play. Highly recommended and addicting! I spent almost 2 hours playing it yesterday, and at $1.99, it’s a steal.

After receiving a few friend requests on Game Center, I took a quick look at what my friend Brandonnn was playing and saw Zoo Keeper DX Touch Edition. I downloaded it immediately. Zoo Keeper is a classic for me. I’m pretty sure it was the first online flash game I played, and with that, my first full time distraction from high school homework.
For those unfamiliar, Zoo Keeper is a simple yet fast paced block puzzle game with adorable animal faces. There are many block puzzle games like it, but Zoo Keeper is the best of the best. It plays terrifically at fullscreen on the iPad, and the switch from clicks to finger swipes is definitely to your advantage. For $1.99, it’s pretty much a bargain (though the game is extremely addictive, so beware). I’d download it if I were you!

You got me Tiny Tower. Just when I was absolutely sure I was immune to all those free-to-play “social” sims, Tiny Tower manages to tiny charm my tiny pants off.
I’ve only played a handful of social games, but enough to realize that for the most part they play as cookie cutter clones of each other. Tiny Tower by NimbleBit is a tower building sim which simplifies a lot of the more annoying aspects found in games of its genre and delights with hints of personality and graphics.
Hit the jump for more of my thoughts on Tiny Tower, or pick it up for free to play on your personal iOS device.
After reading Aaron Linde’s post about ASYNC Corp. by Powerhead Games (Glow Artisan) I “ran out” to buy the game on my iPad.
ASYNC Corp. is a light-hearted but stimulating puzzle game that provides clever and satisfactory gameplay within the guise of a pretty simple concept. The game also packs a lot of heart, with amusing ASYNC corporate messages, adorable cubes with faces and a catchy tune to listen to while you’re cube-ing.
A definite buy for you iOS thing at $0.99! Get to it!
