With so many games available on the iPad, for one to stand out apart from the rest, it has to be pretty stellar. Wonderputt is a great physics-based golf game that’s trying to do just that. While the gameplay may seem pretty simple to begin with, the graphics in the game are kind of amazing and throw you into a fantasy environment unlike anything else.
Will the game mechanics of Wonderputt stand up to its awesome ambience, or will Wonderputt turn out to be all flash and no substance? (more…)
At this point, it takes an awful lot for an app to impress me. I’ve seen it all, and like a grizzled war veteran, it seems like nothing can phase me. But then I met Wonderputt, and things changed.
Wonderputt is like no game I’ve ever played before. Sure, it has concepts that are similar to others, but it’s just so different and beautiful that it draws you in. Not sure what I’m talking about? Let’s get down to the bottom of this after the jump. (more…)
I’m a huge sports fan. I love playing, watching and involving myself in variety of sports all the time — obviously it would make sense then to have a few sports games on my iPad. A dilemma I face sometimes though, is that the market for sport games on iOS is saturated with tons of apps you could really do without. With the Olympics still a recent memory as well, there’s never been a better time to love sports.
In this list, I have been concise in selecting, in my opinion, the best of the best sport games out there for the iPad. These are the ten that offer the most full and exiting experience for the sport in question. Let’s begin. (more…)
Athletes rely on coaches to provide constructive feedback to help improve their game. Coaches can be a great resource to these athletes since the coach can see movements such as minor adjustments in form that the athlete cannot see. While this is a great way to improve fundamentals and conditioning, coaches may not always be available (depending on your location and/or budget).
Coach’s Eye is an app which uses the iPad camera to record a person performing an action. Once a video is recorded, the video can be manipulated and annotations can be added to show proper form or changes that need to be made. These videos can be sent straight to the athlete for study or shared to other people of interest. The unique feature of Coach’s Eye is the ability for the average user to appreciate seeing themselves performing the action and make adjustments as necessary. TechSmith Corporation, the developers of Coach’s Eye graciously provided a promo code to review this app.
Back in my college days I enjoyed playing a version of EA Sports’ Tiger Woods PGA Tour series on a gaming console. The leading sports gaming company began this series in 1998 and released a version for iOS in the second half of last year. With titles like FIFA and Madden NFL, EA Sports has gained a reputation for producing excellent games in this category.
While I don’t consider myself an avid sports gamer, I was excited to try out Tiger Woods PGA Tour 12 and compare it to the older version I had played during my time in school.
