Whoopee Cushion

Written iPhone Game App Review

It was only a matter of time I guess. A Whoopee Cushion app for iPhone is (finally) here courtesy of Richard Grunewald.

A helluva lot less conspicuous than a big red balloon, Whoopee Cushion is perfect for those moments when boredom and silence painfully combine. By my count there are about 6 different bodily sounds to keep you amused.

Yes it’s totally pointless. Yes, it will get old quickly. But goddamn if it isn’t funny before that happens.

JingleJumble

Written iPhone Game App Review

Price: Free    Score: 8/10   By Shaun CampbellJingleJumble

An iPhone Christmas App? You bet. ‘Tis the season to be merry after all.

Developed by LaunchKidz, JingleJumble is this year’s ideal way to distract the younglings at your Christmas family gathering. With simple gameplay and charming illustrations by children’s artist Mike Boldt – it’s guaranteed to get you a few minutes of peace and quiet. But then again, there are inevitable difficulties in entrusting your iPhone to a 7 year old.

JingleJumble is a yuletide take on the classic mix-and-match game everyone grows up playing. You use the swipe of your finger to spin through a number of legs, bodies and faces to create some popular Christmas characters. Yes it’s simple, but it’s pulled off beautifully.

JingleJumble is free to download on the app store, but I dare say it would almost be worth paying for.

Done Drinking

Written iPhone Game App Review

Price: Free   Score: 7/10    By Shaun CampbellDone Drinking

Done Drinking is a humorous little game from developer JVL.

Our hero has been out on the sauce and just can’t seem to keep himself upright. Wandering down a hallway on his way home, he teeters and totters about. If he falls down, he will be “done drinking” and fall asleep!

Use tilt control to keep him from falling over, and see just how far you can get! But beware…the further he walks, the more he drinks, so it gets harder & harder to stop our man from passing out.

With quirky graphics and funny sound effects, Done Drinking is an amusing package. There isn’t going to be a lot of re-playability here as the concept is pretty simple, but the game is free, so take a look for a bit of a laugh.

Crazy Penguin Catapult Lite

Written iPhone Game App Review

Currently one of the most popular downloads in the free app store, Crazy Penguin Catapult Lite is a simple but entertaining offering from developer Digital Chocolate.

Polar bears have taken over Antarctica and it’s your job to help the penguins take it back. Launch your black & white buddies from catapults and dive-bomb the invaders.

Crazy Penguin Catapult has basic but amusing game-play and intuitive controls. Tap once to send your helmeted birds down towards the bears, but be careful, timing is everything!

This is the Lite version, and so the the features are a little stripped-down.Buy the full game for:

  • 30 Playable levels + Bonus levels & Boss battles (there are 6 levels in the Lite version)
  • 9 Penguin power-ups
  • 3 unique maps
  • 2 game modes, campaign & strategy

Crazy Penguin Catapult Lite may not have all the features of the full-version, but for a free game, it’s a great package.

Microsoft Live Labs Releases First iPhone App – Seadragon Mobile

Written iPhone Photo App Review

Microsoft has recently made its first foray into Apple iPhone applications with the release of Seadragon Mobile.

In a most unlikely industry collaboration, the software heavyweight has produced a novel image app that is now freely available on the App Store.

Seadragon Mobile allows users to view Gigapixel images right on their iPhone. Yes, Gigapixel. The image-scaling technology has been developed by Microsoft Live Labs and was originally intended for the Silverlight platform on the PC, but it has been ported across for the iPhone market.

Features:

Seadragon comes with a number of images to explore including several pieces of high-res artwork, NASA’s blue marble and other space images. You can also view user-submitted “Deep-Zoom” Photosynth image albums. There is a nifty search function that lets you find an image set of interest. Seadragon assembles all the images in a set into an ordered display of thumbnails which allows you to view a large number of images quickly and easily. Pinch-zoom control is used to great effect here.

The satellite maps of the world included in Seadragon Mobile are possibly the most useful feature offered by this app. They are closely akin to Google maps, but, dare I say it, better executed – at least in terms of presentation. The maps are available in the same three formats as those provided by Google: satellite, hybrid and road. Labels are clear and the scaling of highways, population centers and geographical data is spot-on. There is a major gripe here though, and it’s a deal-breaker: there’s no search function.

Wrap Up:

As the app stands, it has limited real-world functionality but there is a lot of potential here. Seadragon Mobile was however always intended to be a tech-demo rather than a killer-app, so we shall see what the future holds.
