If you like fluffy snow balls and maze games, then you are going to love Look Out – Blizzard.

You assume the role of the defenseless little snowball and it is your aim to guide it to safety. Sounds simple enough, doesn’t it? It would be, if it were not for fireballs and electrified obstacles doing their best to prevent you from succeeding. Not to mention droplets of water that will have you slipping everywhere, and rocks that will slow you down.

On November 3, 2011, in Apps, iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch, Review, by David M. Acklam

App Developer: Hanno Rein
Version Reviewed: 5.6
License: Free (US $0.99 without ads). Universal app compatible with all iOS 3.1.3 or later devices.

As a member of the front end of the “baby boomers” I can still remember learning that our sun was just an average star and we were one of nine planets orbiting it.

Due to the advancement of technology, astronomers have confirmed the existence of nearly 700 planets orbiting around nearby stars in our own galaxy and have currently identified over 600 additional possible planets; and the number continues to grow.

SHADOWGUN is available on the iOS App Store
App Developer: MADFINGER Games
Version Reviewed: 1.0.3
Licence: US$4.99 Universal App (runs natively on both iPhone/iPod Touch and iPad). Compatible with iOS 4.2 or later.

SHADOWGUN delivers an audio and visual experience rarely seen on portable gaming platforms. It is the new benchmark for all games to follow.

It is the year 2350. John Slade, a gun for hire, is on the hunt for a geneticist whose experiments have exceeded the acceptable level of his employer, Toltech Enterprises.

As you journey through this futuristic world you will have to annihilate hordes of mutated creatures. They are the minions of the crazy wild-eyed scientist Dr. Edgar Simon. John Slade is joined by S.A.R.A., a personal android assistant. The banter between characters brings a sense of realism, sarcasm, and humour to the storyline.

The game is a third person shooter that has ten levels of non stop action, more than five hours of gameplay, and a series of interesting boss battles along the way.
