60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is a thrilling game that challenges players to use their “survival skills” to survive a nuclear disaster.

Newly released to the iOS platform, this game by Robot Gentleman sp. z o.o. is sure to keep you entertained for hours.

Features:

60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is a game set in the 1950s when a nuclear attack hits the world as the characters know it.

Within the app it is your job to survive, as well as to make the decisions that help keep the rest of your crew alive as well.

This might mean gathering certain resources pre-attack or by making certain survival decisions post-attack.

Personally I found it both equally exciting to purposefully try to make the best decisions at times and to make some questionable choices also, just to find out what might happen because of them.

A detailed written storyline keeps players informed of what all is happening in the world of 60 Seconds!, but having a voiceover to read out some of that information might be a desired addition to the game for those with shorter reading attention spans.

Even without a voiceover, however, the features of this app don’t leave much lacking at all.

Appearance and Layout:

The level of detail that obviously went into designing the graphics of 60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is very impressive.

Little nooks and crannies of each screen keep you on your toes to notice all of the detailed resources potentially available to you, should you choose to take notice of and decide to utilize them.

While the graphics of 60 Seconds! are all cartoons, they are still done in a way that fits well with the somewhat dark undertone of the app.

I also appreciated the easy to navigate layout of the game as a whole as well; even though I was unfamiliar with both it and its storyline initially, figuring out my way around the app took relatively little time, leaving me with more time to actually enjoy playing the game.

Value:

At almost $3.00, 60 Seconds! Atomic Adventure is a bit pricier than ideal, but you definitely get your money’s worth.

For those who do decide to make this investment, the features of this app do not disappoint; they are absolutely worth every penny of the $2.99 price tag.

Overall, the developers of this app have created a gaming masterpiece that delivers on its promises.

Press Release: Booty Bay Limited Releases Look & Find: Fun Activities! a Colorful and Interactive App for iOS and Android

Look & Find: Fun Activities!
iPhone App Press Release by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

September 21, 2016 – Look & Find: Fun Activities! is an exciting new educational app for preschoolers that parents will love. Booty Bay Limited’s Look & Find is the perfect solution for concerned parents who are always looking for a new way to teach their child something new, while also making sure they have fun learning.

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Look & Find provides a highly interactive environment where kids can explore and discover everyday objects and features three interactive themes for children: the beach, the zoo, and the countryside. Each theme includes four creative scenes where kids must search for objects.

A recent review of Look & Find by TheiPhoneAppReview.com gave the app a rating of five stars and praised it by saying, “I really like the graphics and illustrations in Look & Find because they’re bright and colorful. It’s clear that quite a bit of detail went into the visual appearance of the app and I know kids will enjoy the cute animals.”

There are a total of 60 discoverable objects in Look & Find. Parents can adjust game settings to display the names below objects, which helps children visually associate words with images.

The developer strongly believes that Look & Find is a truly useful learning tool and writes, “Colorful pictures promote children’s imagination and cognitive skills while keeping them engaged and focused.  The game is playable in 6 different languages, which is perfect for an initiation to foreign languages!”

Though Look & Find includes in-app purchases for additional themes, both the settings menu and locked themes require an answer to a fairly complex math equation. This should help mitigate the chances of a child accidentally navigating to the grown-up sections of the app.

Look & Find: Fun Activities! is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. It is also available to download from Google Play.

About the Developer

Booty Bay Limited has released a total of four games for iOS and Android. They have been developing and publishing mobile games since 2013.Look & Find: Fun Activities! is the first of a series of games that will be released by the publisher in the months to come. The game will soon see an update with three new themes to discover.

Make New Friends with Coffee Phone

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Finding new friends, and especially ones that you have something in common with, can be a challenge. There are plenty of social apps targeting all kinds of hobbies, but none that we know of where the center piece is your cup of coffee.

Coffee Phone lets you meet new people and expand your social circle all while getting a cup of joe.

Sitting down for a cup of coffee at your favorite coffee shop is now even more of a social experience.

Free to download, this app both helps you locate local restaurants and connect with other users of the app.

Features:

Coffee Phone, by Andrea Sangiorgio, helps to connect you to other users of the app within your local proximity.

You’re able to “share a coffee” with another user, and this opens up a line of in-app dialogue. You have the ability to express yourself by creating your own individualized “coffee cup” as part of your in-app profile, although having access to the chatting feature does require a $0.99 one-time fee.  

The app also features a “search” function that locates all nearby bars in your area, although this feature can be a little bit confusing for anyone who has not been to Italy.

In many countries, including the US, a “bar” means a place to go for beer, wine, and other spirits. In Italy, however, a “bar” is usually a place to go for an espresso or some other coffee beverage.

One nice feature to this search option included in the app is the ability to see an estimated driving time to a bar/lounge location as well as the option to place a call through the app if reserving a table or finding out a wait time is desired. Still, all of these search features seem to be actions easily done with other already existing apps (like Google maps).

Appearance and Layout:

Coffee Phone iPhone App Review

Unfortunately, the graphics and layout of this app don’t really jump out and grab you.

Figuring out how to navigate Coffee Phone takes a bit longer than ideal; the layout of the app isn’t entirely intuitive. We think this is one area where the developers have an opportunity to improve this app .

While we are fans of how this app lets you customize your coffee cup, overall the graphics tend to be minimalistic. That can be a good thing but instead of feeling modernly simplistic the design of Coffee Phone comes across as more bland.

Overall, the appearance and layout of this app are probably best described as “functional” but nothing more.

Value:

While Coffee Phone is an interesting concept, and we can certainly expect it to be much improved over time, the app doesn’t really seem to execute its promised features very well.

Even though this app is free to download and create your own profile for, actually locating other users of Coffee Phone or using the in-app chatting feature requires an in-app purchase of $0.99.

As with any new social app, the key is quickly building a sizable user community. We’d like to see the base functionality free with IAPs for add-ons such as custom images for your cup. Monetization could also come from discreet coffee shop ads.

When there are already free “meet-up” apps on the market today, it seems difficult to recommend Coffee Phone as a strong competitor to already existing more popular apps.

Look & Find for iPad Helps Kids Learn New Words While Having Fun

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

I’ve always been a huge advocate of using the iPad as a teaching tool for young children. Not only is it incredibly easy to handle, but the App Store is filled with educational apps and games, many of which are totally free.

Look & Find is an amazing educational game that helps children learn new words by encouraging them to find objects in pictures.

Created by Booty Bay Games, this is a great game with plenty of features.

Concept and Functionality:

The goal of Look & Find is to create a fun and unique experience for kids, and the result is that it succeeds in spades.

There are three different themes to explore: the beach, the zoo, and the countryside. Each theme has four scenes, and each scene has 5 objects for kids to locate.

I really like the graphics and illustrations in Look & Find because they’re bright and colorful. It’s clear that quite a bit of detail went into the visual appearance of the app and I know kids will enjoy the cute animals.

To get the most out of Look & Find, kids simply have to locate each of the 5 objects located in the scene. Kids can reference the objects they need to find on the left side of the screen.

The one small drawback to this is the objects never change, so the game might get boring for kids once they’ve played through each scene more than a few times.

Features:

Look & Find: Fun Activities! iPad App

As mentioned above, the three themes are great for teaching kids about animals and other neat things.

However, only the zoo theme is available right off the bat; the other two themes must be unlocked via in-app purchase for $0.99 each.

This isn’t a problem, though, because it gives parents the opportunity to see whether or not their child truly enjoys Look & Find.

Parents will be happy to know that even though Look & Find has in-app purchases, the option to do so won’t pop up until a math equation is solved.

While this doesn’t completely eliminate the possibility of kids reaching the purchase option screen, the best way to prohibit unwanted purchases is to change the option on your iPhone or iPad to require a password prompt every time.

Value:

You certainly can’t argue with the price of free, and Look & Find offers enough features and content to justify the $0.99 in-app purchase to unlock two additional themes. Plus, the app is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

Overall, Look & Find is a great app for kids and is definitely worth a download. It features plenty of educational content that both parents and kids will enjoy.

Look & Find is also available for free on Android and can be downloaded from Google Play.

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Highlights Shapes – Learning Puzzles for My Preschooler is an incredible app that provides a playful learning environment for preschoolers.

This well-designed app is sure to delight its target audience as it develops their kids’ critical thinking and creative skills.

Features:

As indicated by its name, Highlights Shapes, an app by Highlights for Children, Inc., features various puzzles for preschoolers to solve, all while building their problem solving skills.

The app’s puzzles are made up of shapes and colors, teaching children to correctly identify these along the way. Puzzles are solved with  friendly in-app animal buddies and different challenge levels feature different fun environments, from a jungle to outer space.

Correctly solving a puzzle within a level helps build the details of the level, and the app increases a little bit in difficulty as children advance through the levels.

Developed in collaboration with an early childhood learning expert from Columbia College, the age-appropriate challenges of this app really are impressive.

Highlights Shapes is a very engaging app and easy to play–perfect for preschool-aged children. While solving the puzzles was obviously easy for an adult, Highlights Shapes’ challenges were still clearly well thought out.

Appearance and Layout:

The graphics of this app are certainly age appropriate. Although incredibly simple, this simplicity helps keep the focus of the app on its intended challenges (such as shape identification).

Navigation through the app is equally simple, definitely easy enough for a young child to figure out how to play the game on his own with minimal assistance.

The in-app cartoon characters are all friendly; there’s definitely no mistaking that friendly fox for a ferocious beast.

As a whole, the appearance and layout of Highlights Shapes perfectly aligns with its intended purpose.

Value:

Highlights Shapes is an app that is free to download. The first level is also free to play, which is really great for any parents who are wanting to see how interested their child is in the app.

Levels 2 and 3 can be purchased for a single in-app purchase of $2.99. This fee is a bit higher than ideal for a children’s game, but the the value of the game compared to other games of its type is quite good.

Overall, Highlights Shapes is a fun game that will delight your preschooler while also building critical thinking skills.

We especially appreciate the fact that the first level is free letting you try out this fantastic app so you can see for yourself how well produced it is.

Totem Rush Is Two Great Game Genres Wrapped into One

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

I’ve reviewed countless games here on The iPhone App Review, and no matter how fun a game turns out to be, I always have to put it down in order to write a review.

Totem Rush is an top-notch innovative game that combines multiple elements into one fun adventure and much, much more.

Created by Andrey Pryakhin, this fun and unique strategy game for iPhone and iPad combines entertaining game genres such as strategy and role playing to keep things very interesting.

Concept and Gameplay:

Totem Rush is a game that’s incredibly difficult to stop playing, and I found myself picking my iPhone up occasionally just to recruit a few more characters and battle other players.

If you’ve played match games like Bejeweled and Candy Crush, you’re already familiar with how Totem Rush works. The game has a match-based element, as well as role playing concepts like building up a town from scratch.

Totem Rush iPhone Game

Simply swipe your finger to match similar color totems, destroying them and damaging obstructions to complete objectives.

This mix-up of game genres is fantastic because it allows players to explore the game however they want. Graphics are great, the interface is easy to understand, and sound effects really add to the Caribbean atmosphere.

Totem Rush guides new players via a helpful tutorial, but the game is pretty easy to understand once you play for awhile. There’s a ton of content to grasp, so be sure to take your time when playing.

Features:

Did I mention Totem Rush is basically two different games in one? The best part is you’re not really forced to play one way or the other.

If you’re aggressive, you can battle other players for loot and resources to build your town into a bustling Caribbean community.

On the other hand, if you’d rather explore, you can play through levels and rescue characters while attaining high scores and bragging rights.

Totem Rush does have a time-based element to it, and you can upgrade your island buildings to make your oasis even stronger. Buildings take time to place and upgrade, but you can spend gems to complete them instantly if you want.

Value:

Totem Rush is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

You can purchase crystals for time boosts and other assorted power-ups, but I don’t think that would classify Totem Rush as a “pay to win” game.

Personally I think it’s very relaxing and fun to play, so you can do so at your own pace. Plus, as an added bonus, Android users can share in the fun by downloading the game from the Google Play Store.

Overall I highly recommend downloading Totem Rush if you’re looking for a fun and free game to pass the time.
