Written by Sarah Hanlon

Whether you’re new to the iPhone and iPad gaming scene or you’re simply looking for something new to try, our list of the top 10 iPhone and iPad games from June features 10 brand-new titles that have recently debuted on the App Store.

These games are not only high-quality, but the list is perfect for casual and hard-core players alike. From casual puzzle games to immersive RPG titles and even an incredible spinoff of a popular PC franchise, this list features games for everyone.

I truly hope you enjoy playing these games as much as we do!

Fallout Shelter for iOS

Fallout Shelter for iOS

falloutFallout Shelter (Bethesda – iPhone, iPad, Free) – The first game in our list, Fallout Shelter, brings the incredible world of the Fallout franchise to iPhone and iPad.

Quite possibly on track to be named one of the best games of the year,

Fallout Shelter is a strategy game that immerses players in an underground bunker that must sustain itself and defend itself.

This is a fantastic game for anyone who likes to build civilizations from the ground up in order to create a complex and highly functional network.

 

alphabearAlphabear: Word Puzzle Game (Spry Fox, LLC – iPhone, iPad, Free) – Perfect for both kids and adults, Alphabear: Word Puzzle Game requires players to spell words in order to make bears appear on the screen.

The more words you spell, the bigger your bear will become and the more points you can earn.

If you do very well, you can even keep bears that you earn so you can use them and their power ups in future games.

Like many other games that we featured on this list, this particular one is fairly easy to learn but very difficult to master.

 

Dragon Quest VI for iOS

Dragon Quest VI for iOS

dragonDragon Quest VI (Square Enix – iPhone, iPad, $14.99) – Dragon Quest VI is a brand-new game by Square Enix that takes adventurers on an epic quest through a beautiful and highly interactive world.

Players must work together with NPC characters they meet along their journey in order to successfully embark on adventures.

The game also features plenty of extra goodies, such as an in-game casino and fun mini games. The price is a bit high but players who enjoy the franchise and/or are looking for tons of great content will find that Dragon Quest VI is worth every penny.

 

swaggySwaggy Ninja (iCustomized – iPhone, iPad, Free) – Swaggy Ninja is a one-touch vertical platformer for iOS that features simple graphics and even simpler gameplay.

In order to play, tap the screen to make your ninja jump. Your goal is to avoid obstacles like spears, ninja stars, and other assorted undesirables.

The higher you reach, the higher your score will be.

The really nice part about Swaggy Ninja is the fact that this is a game you can learn to play in only a minute or two, but you won’t be able to put it down because you’ll constantly be trying to be your previous score.

 

Hue Ball for iOS

Hue Ball for iOS

hueballHue Ball (Unept – iPhone, iPad, Free) – Hue Ball is a relaxing new iOS game that’s similar to games like bubble shooters.

This is the perfect game for unwinding after a long day because it features slow gameplay is slightly difficult basically it’s enough to keep you on your toes without making you pull your hair out because the game is too difficult.

Hue Ball also features great background music that really adds to the overall experience of the game.

Plus, the game is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

 

talesTales From Deep Space (Amazon Game Studios – iPhone, iPad, $3.99) – Even though it’s aimed towards younger players, Tales From Deep Space is a fun and addicting iOS puzzle game that’s perfect for all ages.

It takes you through a unique two-dimensional world where you encounter colorful characters and play through plenty of challenging puzzles.

The game not only features single player gameplay, but two players on the same network can link up and play together on their own devices.

The price is a little high for this game, as well, but you don’t have to worry about in-app purchases and the game itself is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad.

 

shootingShooting Stars! (Noodlecake Studios Inc – iPhone, iPad, $2.99) – Want laser kitties? Freedom sheep? Ever dream of saving the world in a blaze of glory?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Shooting Stars! is the game for you.

This fast-paced shoot ’em up arcade game equips players with up to 50 destructive weapons in order to take out 20+ “celebrity” bosses like Justin Belieber.

You’ll have a hard time watching your iPhone or iPad because you’ll be laughing too hard to play.

If you like random humor and stuff that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever, you need to try this game.

 

Escape for iOS

Escape for iOS

escapeEscape (Ketchapp – iPhone, iPad, Free) – Another great title by a fantastic developer, Escape is a free iOS game that lives up to everything we’ve come to expect from Ketchapp.

Players must guide their ship around a series of obstacles while trying to rescue humans from a world that’s collapsing around them.

One of the things I like the most about Escape is the graphics and the fact that there are two different game modes – adventure and a daily challenge.

Overall, this is definitely a game that offers hours of gameplay.

 

piloteerPiloteer (Fixpoint Productions Ltd – iPhone, iPad, $2.99) – If you’re looking for a challenging, yet beautiful game to play, look no further than Piloteer.

Piloteer for iOS

This physics-based game requires players to help their jetpack pilot navigate through a series of levels and obstacles in order to demonstrate the functionality and practicality of his incredible device.

BUCKiTDREAM Will Take Your Bucket List to a Whole New Level

BUCKiTDREAM – Create your dreams and share your BUCKiTLiST
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

I think we can all agree on the fact that the world is a very big place. Though we will never be able to visit every single location on earth, it’s still fun to create a bucket list of places we’d like to go while we are still able to travel.

BUCKiTDREAM is an awesome social networking app that not only allows users to create and keep track of items on their bucket list, but you can also share your list with the world and get inspired by others, as well.

Concept and Functionality:

In order to begin taking advantage of everything BUCKiTDREAM, from BUCKiTDREAM, offers, you’ll first have to create an account with the service. You can do this using a Facebook, Twitter, or email account.

Once everything is set up, you can begin browsing the main timeline and checking out what other users have posted for their bucket list.

Though this certainly isn’t the first app that aims to inspire users with options for their bucket list, I can definitely say that this is a cool new social twist on the concept.

That’s because BUCKiTDREAM focuses so heavily on the social aspect of list creation and maintenance. Users can easily follow each other, interact with comments on dreams, and even copy each other’s dreams and tweak them to fit their preferences.

While it’s fun to explore what other users would like to do before they die, my favorite aspect of BUCKiTDREAM is being able to create and keep track of your own dreams with as much or as little detail as possible.

BUCKiTDREAM iPhone App

BUCKiTDREAM iPhone App

When adding a dream, you can be as brief as giving it a title and a short description or you can go all out by setting a budget, target date, and even including friends you’d like to take with you on the journey.

Features:

BUCKiTDREAM focuses very heavily on the social networking aspect of the app, which I think is fantastic because it really allows fellow users to get inspired by each other.

This adds a wonderful dimension by not only making each user’s experience better, but also by improving their own bucket list.

I do want to mention that BUCKiTDREAM features an option to create private dreams that aren’t shared with other users who might be following you. This is perfect for aspirations you’d rather keep to yourself but still include in the app for personal reference.

Another cool feature of BUCKiTDREAM is that it allows you to document your progress on your dream by adding photo update posts for other users to see.

You can even document when you’ve achieved your dream, which inspires fellow users even more.

Value:

BUCKiTDREAM is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone there are no in-app purchases to deal with or bothersome advertisements.

What you see is what you get, and what you get is an awesome way to keep track of places you’d love to visit or things you’d like to do. The best part is you get to share your dream with like-minded users who will inspire you along the way.

buckitdream.jpgBUCKiTDREAM requires iOS 8.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.

DrinksDeal Makes Going Out an Affordable Adventure

iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

DrinksDeal‘s mission is to make it easy for iOS users find the best deals on food and drinks in their cities. Currently featuring Melbourne, Sydney, and Adelaide, this app helps make dining out a more affordable option.

Features:

DrinksDeal isn’t only about drinks, it provides up to date information on both beverage and food specials in a specific area. The app, by DrinksDeal Pty Ltd, does a nice job of making the search process as simple as possible.

Users can choose to filter search results based on deal type (beer, spirit, wine, cocktail, or food) and can choose to filter by “days available” as well (Monday, Thursday, Friday, or everyday).

This app uses your device’s location information to provides a map view of any deals in your area, and a list view option is available as well.

In addition to locating dining deals for you and showing you a map view of them, DrinksDeal also lets you rate deals and locations; these ratings can be viewed by other users of the app if desired.

As a whole, I found that DrinksDeal was wonderfully easy to use, but at the same time I thought that the limited number of cities that it currently covers was pretty disappointing. The “features” of this app will definitely improve when DrinksDeal simply adds more featured cities.

DrinksDeal iPhone App

DrinksDeal iPhone App

Appearance and Layout:

DrinksDeal’s appearance and layout leave no room for complaints. It’s designed simply enough to be easily navigable but complex enough to be aesthetically pleasing.

The black and yellow color scheme keeps things clean and coordinated without ever feeling overwhelming, and all fonts are readily readable on screens of all sizes.

DrinksDeal is an app that’s designed wonderfully intuitively, making it perfectly usable even on the first time. Again, the appearance and layout of this app are both excellently executed.

Value:

DrinksDeal is a free app and is well designed to really help you as a user save money. Its stellar design makes it easy to use with a layout that doesn’t make you waste time at all.

Unfortunately for those outside of Australia and not planning a visit down under, it’s not yet of much use. On the other hand, if you do live in or near those cities, or are planning a trip to Australia, make sure you have this app ready to go.

Its main drawback currently is its lack of coverage of a wide range of cities; with the only cities featured being the three already mentioned in Australia. The majority of iOS users probably won’t be able to find a use for DrinksDeal just yet.

However, if the developers expand coverage to include more cities around the world, DrinksDeal is likely to find a large dedicated following and for many be a useful, appreciated, and often used app.

drinksqrDrinksDeal requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6, and iPhone 6 Plus. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.

ScrumTotal
iPhone Game Press Release by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

ResearchAccess was quite impressed with this app and stated “The ScrumTotal app is intuitive and powerful.” They went on to say “Small teams equipped with intuitive tools can do wonders if shorn of baggage and if empowered to become agile.  In some ways “agility” finds teams, teams don’t find agility.  Every organization can benefit from this agility and finally reconcile lofty rhetoric and goal setting with execution.”

Dataquest was similarly struck by the design and execution of this innovative app stating “The main goal of ScrumTotal is to help small teams seamlessly reach big goals by using the methodology of Scrum and combining it with the philosophy of Agile all in an easy-to-use, incredibly intuitive package that can be used in a myriad of scenarios.  From development projects to event planning, all manner of “work” can be managed and delivered via this powerful App.”

In a recent review TheiPhoneAppReview.com gave the 4.5 stars and praised the app saying that “ScrumTotal is an incredibly useful mobile productivity app designed to help teams collaborate and complete projects in a timely and efficient manner.” They went on to state “ScrumTotal, developed by Ashok Singh, takes the Scrum method and turns it into a handy iPhone app that lets development teams collaborate around the world.”

This is a free app with tremendous capability that enables teams, even those that are geographically dispersed, to do scrum efficiently reducing cost and overhead.

ScrumTotal for iPhone is available to download for free from the Apple App Store and ScrumTotal for Android is also available for free from the Google Play Store.

Adventures and Fortunes Collide in Slots Boat

Slots Boat – Epic Adventure
iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Slots Boat is a new take on the popular idea of virtual slot apps. Available for free through the iTunes Store, this app adds in a storyline element to spinning slots.

Features:

Slots Boat, by Limpid Logic, is a slots game that pairs the very two things that its name suggests–slot machines and adventure boating.

In this fun slots game players partake in “adventures” through earning coins and power-ups playing virtual slot machines.

Each adventure world is different, but the graphics for all are equally entertaining.

In addition to these unique adventure slots, the app also adds a competitive social element to the world of virtual slots by giving players the option of linking to the app their Facebook accounts, sending and receiving “gifts” to other players, and appearing on leader scoreboards if desired.

If you’re into spinning slots and are in need of a slots fix, this game will deliver the goods and then some with the wide variety of themed worlds. In addition, if you have friends that also play, there’s a nice social twist that let’s you exchange free gifts.

Appearance and Layout:

Slots Boat iPhone Game

The graphics of Slots Boat are actually the app’s strongest feature. These graphics play perfectly into the island/boating theme of the app with colorful pictures that keep the app visually appealing and make it stand out from other slots-based apps.

There’s a lot going on visually and the screens are pretty “busy” at all times in this game, but still I never felt that the graphics were ever too much at any one time.

Finally, getting around the app takes a little bit of practice, but overall in-app navigation is still relatively simple to master.

Value:

The bottom line is that Slots Boat a fun and free easy-to-play slots game. While the “rewards” of it are obviously not as impressive as those of an actual slots machine, the risks are also obviously much better.

It’s a straightforward game, as one might expect from a slots game, so if what you want is to play slots, we suggest you check out Slots Boat.

Overall, Slots Boat is a fun new take on virtual slots machines.

slotsqrSlots Boat requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.

ScrumTotal for iPhone Is a Powerful Productivity App for Developers

ScrumTotal
iPhone App Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

Reviewed by Sarah Hanlon

If you’re a software developer who is looking for a way to organize your team in order to efficiently complete projects, then ScrumTotal is an iPhone app that you should check out.

ScrumTotal is an incredibly useful mobile productivity app designed to help teams collaborate and complete projects in a timely and efficient manner.

Concept and Functionality:

If you’re not familiar with the Scrum method, it’s a productivity system that focuses on completing software projects in smaller pieces. The system focuses heavily on being able to compensate for changes in goals, making them less of a hassle so development teams aren’t thrown off. For more information on the Scrum method, check out this Wikipedia article.

ScrumTotal, developed by Ashok Singh, takes the Scrum method and turns it into a handy iPhone app that lets development teams collaborate around the world.

It’s important to note that this is a fully functional stand-alone Scrum tool. It is not a Kanban tool or simply an extension of a web or desktop Scrum tool.

When you first open the app you’ll have to set up an administrator, along with other team members. Next, you’ll create projects and assign team members to different tasks.

One drawback ScrumTotal has is that it can be incredibly confusing to use if you haven’t a clue as to what the Scrum method is. It’s not impossible to navigate once you find your way around, but you’ll likely spend quite a bit of time figuring out how to use the app.

Features:

ScrumTotal iPhone App

ScrumTotal iPhone App

ScrumTotal is loaded with helpful features that all types of software developers can take advantage of. This includes keeping track of bugs and assigning different users to fix them, accessing reports on progress, and much more.

However, there’s one major feature that’s missing from ScrumTotal, which is an interactive tutorial that walks new users through the app from start to finish.

There’s a help guide popup that tells you the steps needed to start a project, but I think an interactive walk-through that teaches new users how to use the app would be very user friendly.

This would mean development teams could spend less time learning how to use ScrumTotal and more time taking advantage of it.

Value:

ScrumTotal is available to download from the App Store for free and is designed for iPhone. There’s a free 30 day trial for new users and each license costs a minimum of $6.99 per month. Once you’re set up there is no limit on the number of users and projects.

The good news is you can customize the number and duration of licenses (if you’re an administrator) and you can manage licenses within the app itself.

Overall, ScrumTotal is an incredibly useful productivity app for software developers who are looking for a way to easily collaborate with their team no matter where they are.

There’s a bit of a learning curve if you’ve never used the Scrum method before, but it’s time well spent.

ScrumTotal is also available for Android.
