Flow for iPhone and iPad review

Flow is a puzzle game for the iPhone and iPad where you have to connect matching colors with a pipe to create a flow. The catch is that these pipes will break if they cross or overlap, so you must find the perfect paths that allow all pipes to be created even though some of them will not be taking the shortest route.

Twirl! for iPhone and iPad review

Twirl! is a refreshing approach to the world of puzzle games. It has a classic goal -- matching colors -- but a unique method -- twirling a block of 9 squares around the center square. Moving 8 blocks in single move is what makes Twirl! for iPhone and iPad so challenging.

LinkDots for iPhone and iPad

LinkDots is a new puzzle game that is similar to the classic Dots game. The goal is to drop your dots on the grid in a manner that will result in more connections. Two adjacent dots will give 1 connection, 3 dots placed as a triangle will give 3 connections, and 4 dots placed as a square will give 6 connections.

I've played several round of LinkDots on the iPhone and I'm really enjoying it! I love puzzle games, especially when they are relatively challenging like LinkDots. It took a few games before I was able to win a match against one opponents and the game only gets more challenging against more opponents. You must strike the perfect balance between playing offensively and defensively.

World of Goo now available for iPad

World of Goo, the popular physics based puzzle/construction game made by two guys from San Francisco, is now available on the iPad. I've been dreaming of World of Goo on my iPhone for years - to have it on my iPad is even better! In the short time I've spent playing, World of Goo is even better than the first time I played on the PC. Multitouch encourages my complete immersion in the game.

  • Drag and drop living, squirming, talking, globs of goo to build structures, bridges, cannonballs, zeppelins, and giant tongues.
  • The millions of Goo Balls that live in the beautiful World of Goo are curious to explore - but they don't know that they are in a game, or that they are extremely delicious.
  • Mysterious Levels - Each level is strange and dangerously beautiful, introducing new puzzles, areas, and the creatures that live in them.
  • World of Goo Balls - Along the way, undiscovered new species of Goo Ball, each with unique abilities, come together to ooze through reluctant tales of discovery, love, conspiracy, beauty, electric power, and the third dimension.
  • The Sign Painter - Someone is watching you.
  • World of Goo Corporation - Congratulations! World of Goo Corporation is the Global Leader in Goo and Goo Related Product, including World of Goo Corporation Trademark Brand Soft Drink Beverage and World of Goo Corporation Trademark Brand Facial Exfoliating Lotion. Succulent!
  • Massive Online Competition - Human players around the world compete in a living leaderboard to build the tallest towers of goo in World of Goo Corporation's mysterious sandbox. World of Goo Corporation is contractually obligated to state that everyone is a winner and is enthusiastic to celebrate everyone's tower building opportunities equally.

If you pick this one up, let us know what you think! Check out the video after the break.

[$9.99 - iTunes link]
