I'm not going to lie, deciding to review The Impossible Game for iPhone was not an easy decision, because, well, it's nearly impossible! I'm embarrassed to admit that I haven't even made it past the first level, yet. But despite that, I'm still having fun and am totally addicted. That's why I've decided The Impossible Game is worthy of a review.
Amazing Alex is a "new" game by Angry Birds maker Rovio. I say "new", because it has actually been in the App Store before -- as Casey's Contraptions.

Tiny Wings is back with a big update. Now there's local multiplayer in the HD version for the iPad, and a new racing mode called Flight School, which pits you against rival hungry birds.

Best of all, the update is free for previous owners of the iPhone version, and Tiny Wings HD is a steal for just $2.99.
Layout is an iPad photography app that lets you create custom collages of your photos. I know what you're thinking -- "another collage-making app? The App Store is flooded with them!"

Layout also has a unique approach to collage creation and includes a slew of photo editing tools that can be applied to each individual photo of your collage.
