Genesis of War by Krehol Games

(4.2/5) Genesis of War for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is a side-scrolling shoot-em up game. You control a special forces unit that has been sent to the foreign planet Zeebos. The controls aren't the best I've seen on an iOS game, but they work they way they are supposed to. The graphics are okay, with non-animated sprites as the characters and enemies. However, the soundtrack is great, and makes the game more enjoyable. The gun upgrade system provides some help on the more difficult levels in the game. Genesis of War is a great time-waster. I found myself playing the game for a long time before stopping, and in my opinion, Genesis of War is worth the $1.99 asking price.

The minigames eventually get repetitive, and after you beat all of the games, the minigames repeat with the only difference being a small difficulty change.

The controls are smooth and easy to use, the 16-bit graphics are great, and the menus are beautiful. The four classes to choose from are similar to Zenonia 2.

Destructopus by GlitchSoft

(3.25/5) Destructopus is a game for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad. In it, you are a giant, mutated octopus with one eye sleeping beneath the ground. You are awoken by oil drillers, and emerge to discover a polluted, nature-hating land. You rampage through the city while dodging TONS of bullets, and rescue endangered animals at the end of each level. The first few levels are a piece of cake, but after that, the controls get annoying, the amount of things in the background distract, and the number of things to dodge becomes too large. Even though the beautiful graphics and awesome music make up for most of its faults, an update wouldn't hurt.This game is currently $1.99. It's worth checking out, but there are better games out there.

Coin Drop by Full Fat Games

(4.75/5) Coin Drop by Full Fat Games is a fun, adorable little game. You are a coin, trying to save the pink girl coins from the evil blue thug coins. You bounce around the box, hitting pegs and other obstacles. The game is very fun and addictive, with cute cartoony graphics, which will appeal to children, but the game is still challenging enough for adults. However, some of the thugs you must catch are placed in hard-to-reach places, which can create frustration. The game currently has four worlds with fifteen levels in each world. It will be updated with more levels though, so it will slowly become a huge game. It's very fun, and worth the $0.99 it costs.
