 Blaze into Football Season with Endless Blitz

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Football season is here and hhgregg, Inc. has updated their fun and challenging game Endless Blitz to get you into the mood with hard hits and elusive jukes.

Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app even offers opportunities to win real-life prizes.

Features: star Blaze into Football Season with Endless Blitzstar Blaze into Football Season with Endless Blitzstar Blaze into Football Season with Endless Blitzstar Blaze into Football Season with Endless Blitzemptystar Blaze into Football Season with Endless Blitz

As is typical of endless runner games, you have control over one football player, the ball carrier, with the goal of avoiding as many players, referees, and other random obstacles that get in your way for as long as possible.

The ball carrier is able to move left or right, and can also jump. At times, the controls for Endless Blitz felt a little sluggish and the up swipe to jump just didn’t always register. For a game that’s based on precision, it’s greatly affected by the unresponsive controls.

It’s a little frustrating at first, but it’s also something that players can get used to and improve the timing of their moves.

All in all though, Endless Blitz keeps you coming back for more, it excels in its replay value.

After a few tries at the game, it starts to get addicting because the game is excellent at getting you to try to beat your previous run. Specifically, with the option to utilize “powerups,” the game pushes you to get better. Finally, there’s even a mini game included that is similar to the iOS cult hit, Flappy Bird.

Endless Blitz features good graphics, a nice upbeat audio track including menacing grunts when blockers are coming at you, and an appealing game design.

The game has three different levels, each with its own unique style and complexities. For example, one level is a normal football field littered with refs and players, while another is a busy street sprawling with cones and police officers.

Although it realistically doesn’t make sense to have a football player running through the streets, it’s a quirky, fun concept that adds depth to the game.

However, besides the title screen, Endless Blitz has a bit of a cluttered layout, and, as you might expect in a game developed by a retail store, there are product placement ads scattered throughout the game.

There’s no doubt that Endless Blitz is a fun game, even though its controls could be improved. It’s challenging, yet addictive. The game is free, but there are a lot of advertisements throughout that may bother some people.

However, at the time of this review, there is an opportunity to enter into a drawing for real-world prizes such as a TV or other hhgregg products. This is a nice incentive that is rarely seen in mobile games. All in all, Endless Blitz is definitely worth a try.

Reviewed by Adam Itkoff

The music industry has seen some ground shaking changes in the last decade. From Vinyl to cassettes, then to CD’s and finally MP3’s, we’ve seen a rapid evolution in how we absorb and participate in the music realm.

More recently, we watched MP3 downloads turn to streaming services, and now we participate in a new music industry each time we listen or download a song. While for the most part this has been to the advantage of the consumer, this new landscape does pose a set of problems.

For example, what if I want to download an album from iTunes, but there’s a remix I want that’s only available on SoundCloud. Or similarly, what if I can afford to pay for a Premium Spotify service, but I can’t afford to buy each new $15 Jay-Z album that comes out.

Well, with the evolution of the music industry at heart and in mind, Amplifind Music Player and Visualizer, from Matthew Brown, has come strong out of the starting gate, serving as a music content aggregator allowing you to get it all in one place.

Amplifind is a terrific innovative app that pulls your favorite tunes from a multitude of services and puts it all neatly into a single app. Simply put, music fanatics are going to want this app.

The app has a central screen boasting four major categories; Songs, Artists, Albums and Playlists. If you’re used to iTunes, you really won’t need to make an adjustment to use this app.

Next to each song, the original streaming platform of the track will be displayed, which includes four major music platforms; iTunes, SoundCloud, Grooveshark and Spotify. Once you click on a song, you can see a visualizer animate your tunes in real-time.

The crux of this app is built to save you time and increase your music enjoyment, and who is going to argue with that. Now, instead of juggling between four apps or more, you can look to one place.

Concept and Functionality: star Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorhalfstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregator

Considering all that this app does, it’s built pretty well, doesn’t crash, and at 16.8MB, is relatively lightweight. If you dropped your Walkman in place of your iPhone, and dropped CDs in place of iTunes, you’re already halfway to fully utilizing this app.

Overall Value: star Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregatorhalfstar Amplifind is the Ultimate Music Player Aggregator

At $2.99, this one fits snuggly into the “paid” but worth it category. The app accomplishes a great deal in a small amount of space, and might just be headed toward cult status if SoundCloud’s immensely growing user base picks this one up.

 Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefire

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Glidefire is a semi-endless running game for iPhone and iPad. Developed by Wonderwood Games LLC, this particular game has a great idea behind it, but performance issues might frustrate players.

Concept and Gameplay: star Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefirestar Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefirestar Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefirehalfstar Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefireemptystar Race Though Space in a New Sci Fi Endless Runner: Glidefire

Glidefire is yet another game that aims to join the genre of endless running games on iOS. While it features a decent background story, it’s easy to forget about the “goal” of the game and focus solely on completing stages and missions.

The idea behind Glidefire is to pioneer your glider ship around, over, under, and through obstacles in order to safely reach the end of the stage.

Each ship has different features and weapons, and it takes awhile to get used to the feel and mechanics of the game. The first thing I noticed about Glidefire is that the graphics are VERY sharp and crisp, but my iPhone felt like it was burning up after only a few minutes of gameplay.

It’s great to have fantastic graphics, but when your device is working to the brink of exhaustion just to run it, there are definitely performance issues. However, this may be an instance of software running ahead of hardware and we’d love to see how this slick game performs on the upcoming iOS devices.

As you play Glidefire, you’ll earn crystals and energy, which can be spent on an assortment of items such as new gliders and even new characters.

Overall, this game definitely has potential, but it’s tough to get the hang of it and difficult to follow along with the background story.

Glidefire has a few neat features, but nothing incredibly astounding. The game does allow players to have a fair amount of control over their glider thanks to upgrades, but that’s about it. There are missions that players can embark on in order to earn even more rewards, but they’re available only after all stages have been completed.

Glidefire also features dynamic playability, meaning there are new challenges to complete on a regular basis. This is something I really like about the game. Add to it the ability to compete against your friends and this game gives players reasons to keep coming back even if they’ve cleared every stage.

This sort of material helps to keep Glidefire fresh.

Glidefire is a very slick game with lots of replay value and tons of potential.

It’s available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There’s an in-game store for players to purchase items with real money, though it’s nice to see that the game isn’t really a “pay to win” game.

Overall, Glidefire is one of those games with a few flaws but lots to build on. For example, while the graphics are fantastic, I can’t imagine the game being played on anything lower than an iPhone 5s seeing as it turned my iPhone 5 into an expensive hot potato.

On the other hand, it’s a free game that challenges players and will keep you occupied even if you have no interest in the background story. Ultimately, the choice is up to you.

Reviewed by Luke Patrick

When it comes to games for the iPhone, we can hardly get enough arcade titles under our thumbs. We absolutely adore any title that has us competing with others (or ourselves) for a high score, especially if it comes with a unique premise, and buckets of charm. 

Thankfully, Jumpy Jester, from Gregory Parton, delivers on all fronts!

Jumpy Jester is fresh off the press, and, with its flashy colors, high-flying fun, and endless challenges, we guarantee it won’t disappoint.

And for our full review, you need only slide down below the break.

The idea behind Jumpy Jester is simple, so much so that it takes mere seconds to someone how to play it.

You’ll be directing a small clown on the screen. When you see an emery approaching on the sort of conveyer belt at the bottom, tap the screen to jump. And that’s it! 

There are no other tricky mechanics involved, no real challenges other than this one. And in a way, that’s really quite refreshing. It takes us back to a time when games like Pong were king, with only a single button press and a whole lot of hope. 

In this way, you’ll be combating your way from low-score to high-score. The longer you can stay in the action without hitting one of the oncoming baddies the better. It’s tough at first, and it only gets harder. Occasionally, the game will throw you a bone or two in the form of a power up or extra life. But for the most part, you’ll be relying an awful lot on your sharp reflexes.

Here’s the kicker, though: A lot of what Jumpy Jester has to offer isn’t so much about reflex as much as it is pattern creation. The game’s enemies are delivered on a mostly consistent, patterned basis. To avoid them, just tap at the right time, and then keep tapping on queue.

This is great at first, and other great games have certainly done this, but after a while it isn’t quite as exciting as a more random approach.

The controls, though simple, also feel a little soggy. They aren’t as snappy as we might like, making this approach to gameplay feel slightly slower.

All in all, though, it’s still a challenge, and one you can return to quickly and often.

At the end of the day, though, Jumpy Jester cannot be beat for the value. It’s still an engaging arcade title, and though it isn’t totally hiccup free, it’s a far cry from most.

Take it from us: If you’re looking for an addictive new title to add to your iPhone’s repertoire, you could do a lot worse than Jumpy Jester.

Top New and Updated Free iPad Games by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

It’s no secret that smartphones and tablets are really game consoles. The fact that you can do other things with them is merely coincidental.

In that vein we’d like to point you to some of our favorites that imbue the following key characteristics; they have to be released or updated withing the last 30 days, they are free to download, they do not have exorbitant IAPs – nothing over $9.99, they make good use of the iPad increased real estate, and, of course, they are fun to play!

 Top New Free iPad GamesSo here are 7 standouts in no particular order.

 

The Tower – In this fun puzzle app from Ketchapp you’ll be required to concentrate and you’ll need quick reflexes. You are tasked with building the tallest tower in the world. While playing against your friends or strangers you’ll be tapping the screen to carefully place ever-smaller blocks atop one another so they balance and let you keep going higher.

But watch out! As you go higher the pieces you’re balancing keep getting smaller so to properly place them, as you’d expect, the game gets harder and harder.

 

Frozen Free Fall – Disney’s match-3 game derived from its hit movie, Frozen, features great graphics and, of course, your favorite Frozen characters to make it even more fun to play. Your game-playing adventure will take you through the Kingdom of Arendelle with Anna, Elsa and others. Without opting for any IAPs you get hundreds of puzzles to work on and can unlock additional characters as you do.

This game is a terrific addition to your game rotation and will surely be a favorite of all the Disney fans in your family.

 

Swing Copters – If you’re jonesing for a Flappy Bird clone that you can spend some time with, try this one. It has pretty good gameplay on the iPad and will keep you entertained. The difficulty level is a bit more than we’d like but if you stay with it you can definitely improve and get some decent runs out of it.

 Top New Free iPad Games

We would like to see a simpler mode to start with, which would help those who, maybe because they’ve been living under a rock, have not already learned how to play these types of games.

The swinging obstacles add to the appeal of the game and make it worth a download.

 

Cheating Tom – Can you get through school simply by cheating? Not the greatest message for kids but definitely a fun game to play. With over 100 levels of assorted challenges, from copying answers from your fellow students to outsmarting teachers, this game will keep you on your toes and entertained.

Reactions from the other characters in the game add to the fun as you collect powerups and do your best to cheat your way to straight A’s.

 

Subway Surfers – Truth be told this is probably one of the most addictive games some of us have ever played, and played, and played. It has terrific replay value and through the use of special challenges, daily and weekly specials, and long running challenges that might take days or even weeks to complete, you just keep coming back for more.

We really like this one (can you tell?) and hope that other developers take a cue from how they are able to start out pretty easy but then build up the difficulty without ever becoming impossible.

 Top New Free iPad Games

Tower Boxing – This retro-styled game is just a ton of fun. What makes it so much fun? We don’t know about you but the most fun we’ve every had was when we were intentionally breaking something.

And breaking something big is better than breaking something small.

So what can be more fun than knocking down a skyscraper! Seriously, you need to download this free game and start punching. You won’t regret it.

 

Piano Tiles (Don’t Tap The White Tile) – For those of you who like a game that requires concentration and focus, Piano Tiles is sure to scratch your itch. You’ll need to complete the game to get a high score so stay with it. You’ll also improve as you go and learn to stay in the zone.

One aspect of this game that we appreciate is that the audio tracks feature classical pieces such as Fur Elise and Ode to Joy. They should probably open this up to other genres or even your own playlist, but we’re not complaining.
