If you ever, like me, hear a song and just can’t place it, then this may well be the perfect app for you. It’s easy to use and will stop you going over and over that song you heard in that shop you went into but just couldn’t quite remember the name of… Read on to see why, in brief, Shazam is a must-have for any iPhone user… Read the rest of this entry ?

Another easy but addictive iPhone game for you – Drop 7 bills itself as sudoku meets tetris, so as a fan of both, I figured this was the game for me. I have since spent many hours placing these little discs in what seems like the best place, and can certainly testify to the fact that, for addiction value at least, it’s been worth the money.

In a flurry of productivity here’s another potentially good buy for you this evening… I was mistakenly guided here thinking this was an RPG, and hunting for something with dragons given my recent love affair with Dragon Age: Origins (review of the DLCs coming soon… ish…) and was, if I’m honest, disappointed on both counts, but fortunately I was pleasantly surprised with the reality of the game, so read on to see if it could be the pleasant surprise you’re hunting for too… Read the rest of this entry ?
This was actually introduced to me by one of the kids at school who came rushing over for help with one of the quizzes before his time ran out, and from that point on I was hooked. It has since entertained me on trans-Atlantic flights and entertained my entire family on long drives up and down the length of the UK, yes, people, Sporcle truly is fun for all the family.
I bought Tap Tap Revenge 3 yesterday for the bargain price of $0.99 – I hasten to add that I have since paid $2.99 for a bundle of sings, but that’s a whole different matter, and not really necessary unless you have a particularly strong desire to play along to some of your favourite songs rather than just the free tracks available.
Essentially the game is, quite clearly, an adaptation of Guitar Hero or Rock Band for the iPhone, and despite the intense pain that developed from hovering my hand over my phone, it really is damn good fun! For those unfamiliar with the concept, you have to hit the coloured platforms at the end of the runway as the coloured balls land on them, and at times it’s not quite as easy as it may seem. It had been a while since I’d played a rhythm game, so initially I was slightly foxed by the easy tracks, panicking when more than one ball rolled down at once and just frantically hitting everything in sight until the frenzy passed, however, once I regained my composure I realised that the easy ones are just that, a little easy and lacking in challenge and have since tried my hand at some of the medium and hard tracks available. Despite having studied music to quite a high level, and having a pretty good sense of rhythm, there are still times when the hard tracks frustrate me and I can’t quite get the rhythm right – it’s the syncopated ones that get me, I always forget about the off-beat, and frankly if I’m not getting 100% hits I’m just not satisfied, but that’s a personal thing, and by no means essential for getting on with the game.
