Warspark and Armor Games released Siege Hero, one of the best Angry Birds clones we have come across. Kingdoms are under siege by the bad guys and you have to retake castles. Rather than launching projectiles from the left to the right sides of the screen you actually launch them from the front to the back so to speak. The projectiles include boulders, rocks, barrels of oil, flasks of liquid fire and bombs. Sometimes you have to strategically destroy a bridge or bridges to knock down the siege participants (See the video of level 2-8 below). Even though it does resemble Angry Birds to some degree, Warspark’s unique take on the physics puzzle genre makes Siege Hero a worthwhile download. Siege Hero is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.Requires iOS 3.0 or later and costs $0.99 and the HD version costs $2.99.

Consumers can play Don’t Fry the Frog for free and pay for a jar of Fly pennies. (more…)

Sorry. We couldn’t help overselves. What do you expect from the cracked “editorial” team at a site called HarryBalls.com. Yes. The Swedish game company known as Dear Future Astronaut released a physics puzzle adventure game for the iOS platform called Nose Invaders priced at $0.99. Nose Invaders takes place in someone’s nose. Who’s nose? No one knows. Sorry. When a mobile game takes place in noses some one has to write about it. Virus have invaded the noses of various creatures and you must guide the hero to wipe out said viruses from the noses. You aim the hero by tapping the screen towards the targeted viruses but you must also pay attention to the direction of the creature’s breath which will influence the direction your hero takes like a sail boat. It’s easy to learn and difficult to master.
