Zombie Food–No Candy for Halloween This Year offers gamers the latest spin on the popular cave-flier, screen-tap-controller game genre, and it’s quite a ride!

Features:

Zombie Food, by Michael Granzin, is a perfectly named game. That is, the idea of the game is that you need to guide your character to “eat” specific “zombie foods” while avoiding other obstacles.

The game is controlled by a simple “tap-screen” method, making it easy to get the hang of for anyone who’s familiar with this popular gaming style. However, even though it’s very easy to understand the basic idea of the game, doing well at Zombie Food is actually quite a challenge.

I’m sure there are many gamers who can’t wait for the latest “impossible” game and feel that difficulty only adds to the appeal of a game. Personally, however, I found the difficulty actually detracts from its appeal.

It makes this game feel very slow starting out, although if you stay with it you’ll be rewarded with some real challenges.

Additionally, I felt that there was a bit of lag when controlling my character at times, and this added further frustration.

Still, the different details that are added in at each level are appreciated (like being able to use an electric shock charge during level three).

Regardless of how you feel about its difficulty, however, there’s no doubt that the strongest appeal of Zombie Food is definitely in its graphics and visual effects. Very well done.

In fact, the graphics and animations of this app are truly excellent. They’re charming while still fitting into the “scary” category of the overall genre of zombie games this app seeks to set foot into.

All of the food items within the app are appropriately detailed. The layout of Zombie Food is also easy to understand, making it a very easily navigable app.

While the actual execution of the gameplay of this app could use a little improvement, the graphics and animations of Zombie Food leave no room for complaints.

Value:

As mentioned previously, Zombie Food is currently available for just under a dollar. This is a relatively minimal fee, and we do appreciate that there are no ads to annoy or distract players, but it still seems a bit high for what the game has to offer.

This is particularly true when considering the many completely free iOS games already crowding the market today. We suggest the developers explore the “freemium” monetization strategy. That is, free to download with some IAPs for upgrades.

Zombie Food is also a very seasonally-focused app with much of the app themed around Halloween. But, if you’re into scary games and you’re feeling a bit nostalgic for that crazy night, or maybe you just loved playing Flappy Bird, give Zombie Food a whirl.

Where’s My Water? 2: Even Better Than the Original

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Jim Desposito

Where’s My Water? 2 is an incredibly entertaining and addictive iOS game.

It’s a fun casual puzzle game in which players are challenged to clear obstructions that can be found in between the Alligator’s bathroom and sewer system.

The game is excellent for younger players as all the characters in the game are charming and you can play it in a cartoon style.

Concept and Gameplay

The unique concept and gameplay that is presented in the original Where’s My Water? has been carried over and has played a major role behind the popularity of both editions.

The main objective of Where’s My Water? 2, from Disney, is to figure out how to guide the steam of water so that you collect the most points.

Swampy, an alligator, is the main character of this game and he loves to take a bath with the water that is supplied by you. In addition, you can find another character named Allie, who is a female alligator.

She needs a continuous supply of steam to play with her steam powered organ. Apart from these two characters, there is another one named Cranky, who requires your assistance to clean up the algae from his purple water and food.

You need to cut through the ground with your finger and provide a continuous supply of steam to these three characters. If you want to go for a bigger score, you will have to pass through the 3 rubber duckies as well.

Hitting these 3 duckies with water is known as “tri-ducking” in the game.

Design and Graphics

Where’s My Water? 2 comes along with a wide range of new game types and challenges than the previous version. The developers have added challenges to all the levels of the game in order to make it more interesting.

When you complete a specific level, you will be able to unlock additional challenge modes. They include playing the same level upside down or adding personalized requirements to the level such as avoiding the duckies instead of passing through them.

These new twists have made the game look more interesting and enjoyable.

You can also find a new game type called Duck Rush in Where’s My Water? 2. In this game type, you will be asked to keep water on the screen when you cut dirt.

The levels will scroll automatically during this process. If the water scrolls off your screen, you will have to start the challenge again from the beginning.

Moreover, you will need to pass steam through 6 rubber duckies to get the maximum score. This new game type is an excellent addiction to the game.

Overall Value

While the game is free, it should be noted that ads pop up on a regular basis and the player is repeatedly asked to connect on Facebook.

There are also a variety of IAPs which can be used to level up faster without much hassle, although the one we wanted, to get rid of the ads, does not seem to be available.

Overall it’s a fun and addictive game that can be a bit challenging as well.

Family Orbit Lets Parents Create a Safe Social Network for Their Family

Family Orbit – Family Locator, Parental Control & Your Private Family Network

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Parents have a ton of responsibilities, the primary one being keeping their children safe in an expansive and tech-based world. Plenty of apps and services are available to help make the task a little easier, but do they help or make the issue worse?

Family Orbit creates a private social network for your family, complete with location and photo sharing & monitoring, emergency features, and much more.

Concept and Functionality:

If you’re like me, you are keen to the idea of keeping kids on a loose leash, meaning you want to give them just enough freedom where you can pull them back in if they get into any sort of trouble.

Family Orbit, from AppObit LLC, aims to help parents do just that by allowing them to keep an eye on activities without interfering too much.

Setting up Family Orbit is a breeze and requires only an email address from each child. You don’t have to worry about complicated account setups or device syncing, which is a drawback of similar apps with such systems.

Family Orbit is very easy to navigate, as well, and both parents and kids shouldn’t have an issue with finding their way around the app.

I really like the way everything is laid out because it focuses on ease of access. Both kids and parents can easily share location check-ins, photos, and check out the family activity wall that’s generated automatically.

Family Orbit iPhone App

An app like Family Orbit needs to have a ton of features in order for parents and kids to take full advantage of it, and I can say that this app is surprisingly powerful.

Not only are there plenty of sharing features so everyone can keep in touch, but the app focuses heavily on safety, as well.

For example, parents can use Family Orbit to set up virtual fences, called Family Places, so they’ll know when their kids arrive or leave. They can also monitor their child’s driving habits by alerting them when their child is driving over the speed limit.

I didn’t have a chance to check this out for myself, but it’s a fantastic safety feature if it works correctly. The only drawback to this is that the battery on iPhones will drain much faster when GPS is running constantly raising the likelyhood of the battery dying and therefore losing the connection with the iPhone, so this is a bit of a Catch 22.

Family Orbit offers a Premium subscription for families who find the app useful. Benefits of premium include location history for the last 7 days, a new limit of 10 family members, the ability to monitor all photos and contacts on a child’s device, and 5 GB of cloud storage for photos.

Value:

Family Orbit can be downloaded from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. Even if you choose not to upgrade to Premium for $4.99 per month, the base app is worth using. In fact either way this is a must-have app for parents with kids, especially younger ones.

When it comes to cost, the subscription price is pretty reasonable compared to other services. Plus you have a chance to take the app for a test drive before committing to a monthly payment.

Make Your Friends Reveal All with Let’s Be Honest: Party Game

Let’s Be Honest:Party Game is the next big thing at your weekend party. Invite some friends over and let the fun begin.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this game can also be played with friends who aren’t necessarily within your immediate vicinity.

Features:

Let’s Be Honest, from Blackwattle Company Pty Ltd, is a game that forces its players to do exactly as it says: be honest with each other.

Specifically, players create their own accounts and can then create games within a specific circle of friends (up to twelve people at a time). Since this app is designed as a party game, it really is meant to be played with friends near you, but creating games for remote players is also a possibility.

Two free decks of cards are offered with the basic Let’s Be Honest game download, one of which is a bit more scandalous than the other. (As a whole, this app is aimed at more mature audiences and is not meant as a game for children.)

Once a card deck is chosen and a game created, players all must pick among other players (or themselves) who most fits as the answer to that particular question.

All players then hold up their phones to their foreheads to show how many votes they received for that question; each person who picked the most voted for answer gets points.

While these directions might sound a little confusing, getting the hang of Let’s Be Honest really takes no time at all, and I was very impressed with the execution of this gaming concept.

Let me be perfectly clear – Let’s Be Honest is the next big party game.

Appearance and Layout:

The design of Let’s Be Honest: Party Game is a pretty minimalistic, which works well with its very straight-forward game concept. Minimal time is put into providing users with detailed instructions however, and this might make it a bit more difficult for any iOS users not already familiar with similar gaming concepts.

Still, once you’ve gotten used to this app, its layout definitely helps it more than hinders it; minimal time is spent being distracted by pointless graphics (since there are none) and the black background screens really fit well with the overall feeling of the app.

Value:

Let’s Be Honest is a free game, with optional in-app purchases also offered. This really is the ideal setup for the app, as it allows first-time users to get to try out the game prior to making any financial investments.

The questions within the first two free deck seemed somewhat limited, particularly if you really wanted to spend a lot of time playing Let’s Be Honest, but the availability of these expansion decks really does make this app one of excellent value.

While it’s really aimed at users who are familiar with board games like Cards Against Humanity and is definitely not appropriate for younger players, it is a fun app for its target audience.

‘Tis the season once again. No, not the holidays. It’s campaign time! Candidates are flooding the media with their messages and people around the country are gearing up for the 2016 Presidential Election.

Election Campaign Task Tap is an iPhone app designed for politicians and supporters who are actively running a campaign. The goal of Election Campaign Task Tap is to help candidates keep track of their campaign progress, various tasks, and much more.

Election Campaign Task Tap, from Okorafor Ikeagwu, made its debut on the App Store on November 2, just in time for the start of the 2016 election season. The current version is 8.0 and the app requires iOS 9 or higher to run.

Features of Election Campaign Task Tap include statistics tracking, task reminders and easy task lists so candidates can keep tabs on the events of the day.

The app also features easy navigation by placing all screens side-by-side so users can swipe between them.

Candidates and their supporters can even gather around for a fun “Randomness Game”, which is perfect for relaxing and winding down after a long day on the campaign trail.

Election Campaign Task Tap also features Apple Watch support for candidates who sport the device, giving them instant access to everything the app offers without having to pull out their iPhone. The watch version of the app includes all of the features of the iPhone version.

The creators of Election Campaign Task Tap, What’s Appmaker, were inspired by the design of their previously released app, Colourblind Memory Test Game. They built the app in hopes of making the tasks of campaigning easier for candidates and their supporters.

The developers are especially proud of Apple Watch support, saying that “You will help your political party effectively campaign for the 2016 election using this user friendly hands on task tap watch app.

Generate more traffic/footprints for local, state, national rallies in key locations and inspire more supporters with the ease in which you enjoy your tasks.”

Election Campaign Task Tap is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone and Apple Watch. The app does not contain advertisements or in-app purchases and doesn’t collect sensitive or personal information.

Get Organized with BossNote

BossNote: Calendar, Notepad and Organizer

BossNote provides users with an easy way to be more organized across iOS devices and the web.

Developed by Ruslan Shigabutdinov, BossNote is a neat productivity tool.

Features:

BossNote lives up to its name by as an organizational tool that aims to keep users organized and connected to their scheduling needs throughout all of their devices.

While iOS devices all have the functions offered in this app already, BossNote brings all of those functions together into a single app.

Specifically, this app allows users to view a calendar, notepad items, and any other iCloud documents without a need for opening other apps.

This means that BossNote can be used to store photos, sketches, voice recordings and just about any other type of file. It also makes it very easy to add photos to notes.

Accessing items stored within your BossNote account is easily done without the need for an internet connection, a fact which I really appreciated.

First time users to this app are offered the opportunity to create a specific account right away or to continue without registering as a guest, which is another thing I found appealing about this app as well.

Appearance and Layout:

Visually speaking, BossNote does not have the strongest appeal. Its layout seems a bit more overwhelming and cluttered than it otherwise could be, and this can make your schedule/list of things to do look pretty exhausting (depending on how busy you are). This app definitely benefits from the larger screen on the iPad and, in fact, has been optimized for the new iPad Pro.

At the same time, I do appreciate how navigating through the different features of the app is easy to do, even with minimal instruction after creating a BossNote account.

The color scheme is simple and clean, which is another pro to the layout as well. Still, it seems like the functionality of this app could have been put into a stronger, more visually appealing design.

While it’s true that BossNote is all about utility, which is spot on, it would benefit from an improved design. It isn’t really an app that you open because you are impressed with its appearance.

Value:

BossNote is a free ad-free app that’s relatively easy to use and does exactly what it’s promised to do, which is a lot. At the same time, however, many users might feel that they already can do much of what they would use BossNote to do through other services (such as the Google system), although arguably with more effort.

Still, BossNote offers a very useful combination of functions at a great price (free!), and for users who are looking to easily manage a wide range of file types this app is a great download.
