Ever walk into a mall and see some kid wearing an Angry Birds T-shirt? Maybe there’s a friend of yours who has a stuffed animal shaped like the red bird in the game. Possibly your dad is hooked on the app like crack — you get the picture.
That game was developed by Rovio, and recently a few of their developers spun off to create their own company, Boomlagoon. Their first release is called Noble Nutlings, and it’s the tale of three squirrels, a car and a bunch of acorns. Did they create the next Angry Birds or will these rodents go feral? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
Have you ever pictured your life as a professional stuntman? Have you day-dreamed about which superpower you would choose? Or maybe you’ve imagined what the world would be like if it was overrun by zombies (and a celebrity basketball player had the power to lead the fight against the army of the undead)? No?
Well regardless, here’s your chance to get some answers. This week’s roundup includes games that let you play as Joe Danger, a stuntman who’s pretty good on a motorbike; as a retro time surfer who can practically rewind time at will; and as Shaquille O’Neal (yeah, that Shaquille O’Neal), zombie killer. Oh, and there are also a couple of games featuring cute squirrels and some amazing ants. Check them all out after the jump. (more…)
Of all the games in today’s roundup, the one I’m most excited about is Hundreds, and I think after you take the time to try it you’ll see why. Simultaneously exciting and soothing, it’s a wholly original game that I might just never get tired of playing, or even looking at it.
Let me know what you think of Hundreds and the other four games. Click “more” to check them all out. (more…)
I’ve been a fan of Keri Smith’s illustration work for quite some time now and so was delighted to discover that This Is Not A Book had recently been released as an iOS application, under the similarly brilliant name of This Is Not An App.
For the uninitiated, This Is Not An App and its paper counterpart are an exercise in creativity, containing a treasure trove of activities designed to free your imagination and inspire even the most artistically challenged of folk. But the question is, just how well does this popular Penguin book translate to the iOS format? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
Well we’re barely into the new year and already alien robots are taking over Korea; a rag-tag team of soldiers called the RAD Squad is stirring up some mischief; three suitors are battling it out karate-style over the lovely Mariko; and a narwhal named Sharpy is (badly) drawing movie scenes.

This week, my time has been spent churning butter, sowing seed, tending to livestock and selling produce to the occasional neighbor, and local kindergarten — all from the comfort of my living room couch. How so? Hay Day, Supercell’s latest offering.
Following in the footsteps of the ever so popular FarmVille, Hay Day is a farming simulation game in which you must manage time and resources to successfully run a failing farm. Let’s take a closer look. (more…)
I wasn’t one of the guy who latched onto the Grand Theft Auto series when it first hit big in the late 1990s. Instead, I came along in 2002 when Grand Theft Auto: Vice City first was released, and I burned away my 20s trying to get 100% completion on the console title as well as all of its sequels (and eventually, GTA: III). Man did I love that game.
But the GTA series on iOS has been a bit more finicky for me. GTA: III was too difficult to control, and I never saw the appeal in Chinatown Wars. At the time, I chalked it up to my awkwardness with a virtual controller combined with a faulty UI, but Rockstar promised that all that went away with the 10-year anniversary release of GTA: Vice City on iOS. Did they succeed in making the classic game fun to play on a touchscreen device, or is it just more of the same? Let’s find out after the jump. (more…)
Although developers continue to stun us with intricately made graphics for their iOS games (and boy, do they look great on the iPad’s Retina Display), it seems as if everyone, both old and young, still have an emotional attachment to ’80s arcadia. Luckily for us, the nostalgic 8-bit art style from this age also translates well to our iPads, and even graces some of our favorite games here at iPad.AppStorm.
In today’s roundup, we’ll be looking at eight different iOS games that bear the beautiful 8-bit graphics we so love, but also provide hours of exciting playtime. Find out which apps made the cut after the break! (more…)
Welcome to the first iPad games roundup after the world didn’t end on Dec. 21, and the last iPad games roundup of 2012. This week’s apps will have you becoming: a big know-it-all while playing a wickedly fun trivia game; a crime-fighting middle manager who’s ready for life beyond his cube; a respawnable cartoon soldier; monsters Mike and Sulley who are on the run to save Boo; and a team of experts exploring a lost world.
