Featuring head-to-head action against the computer with 3 different difficulty levels as well as a multiplayer option (two people on the same device), Foosball is a great little pick-up-and-play game for fans of table football.

With full support for the iPhone 4 retina display with utilization of Open GL graphics, Foosball is easily the best looking game of Foos I’ve seen on the iPhone to date. Great game physics and realistic sound effects round out a solid package.

Talking Baby Hippo Will Entertain the Kids

If you’ve seen Talking Carl for iPhone then the new app Talking Baby Hippo is going to look a little familiar.

Putting aside the fact that it’s pretty much the same app, just without Carl, Talking Baby Hippo from Outfit7 has been doing very well since its release late last week.

The developers tout Talking Baby Hippo as an app suitable for children aged 2-7 and for “everyone young at heart”. Talking Baby Hippo will repeat everything you say (just like Talking Carl), but in his cute little baby hippopotamus voice.

You can interact with Baby Hippo by tickling him, poking him, feeding him carrots, making him blow up a balloon or by giving him a butterfly to play with. The app also allows you to take videos of Baby Hippo so you can email them to friends or upload to Facebook or YouTube.

If you’ve got young kids Talking Baby Hippo might be worth a look, but at $1.99, there are cheaper (i.e free) apps available that do more or less the same thing.

Here There Where? Text Your Location Fast

Price: FREE   Score: 9/10   By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Here There Where? Text Your Location Fast

I live in fear of becoming one of those people walking down the street, eyes glued to the screen and thumbs flying. In other words, I avoid texting unless necessary. While still more convenient than calling, typing out a text message, particularly when you want to meet up with someone, can be time consuming. Enter Here There Where?.

Designed by Davick Apps, Here There Where? does exactly what the name indicates. Tap “Here” on the main menu to text someone and let them know where you are. Type “There” to let them know where you’re going to be. And type “Where” to text them a general “what’s going on” pre-formatted text.

“Here” worked perfectly for me. The app automatically detects your location, and when I tapped “Here” it pulled up a list of the cafes and restaurants closest to me. Tap one, then either choose a contact from your address book, or create a group for permanent use with the app. You can check to include the address and a link to a map of your location. The text will come with an automatic message (“Hey, I’m at the Highlander Pub”), and you can add your own text as well before hitting send.

“There” works the same way, although this is where I noticed that there is a limit to which locations you can choose. You can type the name or address of the location into the search function and it will begin to automatically generate guesses. Geek that I am, I tried to enter my city’s central library, and even after typing in its exact address, the closest I could get was the hotel next door. The app does seem to have an extensive list of eateries, bars, museums and hotels listed, but I was a little surprised Seattle Central wasn’t on there.

As for “Where,” the pre-formatted texts (which you can edit) are simple questions like “Are you going to the party?” and “What’s the plan?” It would be a cool feature in future editions if adjustments we make to our own custom texts could be saved.

Overall, this non-texter is going to leave this app on her iPhone and most likely make some good use of it. I haven’t experienced any bugs with the first version, and seeing as it’s a freebie, I’d recommend checking it out.

Doodle Your Own Universe with Doodle God

Price: $.99   Score: 10/10   By M. Schustermanbadge appstore sm Doodle Your Own Universe with Doodle God

The best way I can think of to describe Doodle God? This is one weird, creative, oddly addictive game.

Designed by JoyBits Ltd, Doodle God proves that as far as ideas for games goes, developers are still churning out completely unique stuff. To really get a feel for what the app is about, I’d recommend watching their preview on YouTube.

Basically, you are Doodle God, creator of your own doodle universe. You begin with the four basic elements – water, air, fire and earth. Tap any two elements to watch them collide, creating an entirely new element. For example, water and air collide to make steam. Earth and fire collide to create lava.

And each of these new elements collide with others to make even more elements – in fact, from the four basic elements you can end up with 140 total. Sounds easy, but it’s not only surprisingly challenging, it’s addictive as well.

I adore the graphics for this game – detailed and beautiful, but with an understated look. The music and sound effects are equally classy. It’s also a great app for those who like games where figuring out how to play only takes a few seconds.

What’s fascinating is how much thought and planning must have gone into the elements – as you create more and more, your elements become more complex, from clay to plasma, energy, beetles, and even humans. Another feature I love is that each time you create a new element, a relevant (and usually somewhat humorous) quote is displayed.

The number of elements you have is tracked at the top of the screen, and you can tap the list icon at the bottom to see your “Reactions History” – useful, because after a few dozen it becomes quite difficult to remember which combinations you’ve already made. Based on the quality of the graphics alone, I was honestly surprised to see this game is only a dollar. Highly recommended for strategy game fans.
