Dingo Games released one of our favorite indie games Tasty Planet 2 Back for Seconds on the iOS platform for a special introductory price of $0.99. We gave Tasty Planet 2 Back for Seconds PC version a 5 out of 5 rating. You can read the review here. The game player must direct the lovable little ball of goo to items he must eat to grow. The items include small little balls, test tubes, batteries, frogs and even cuddly mice. In the PC version of the game, the player uses the mouse or the arrow keys to guide the goo ball around the screen to his snacks. In the iOS version of Tasty Planet 2 the players’s device – the IPhone or IPad inherits the mouse/arrow keys’ role requiring the user to tilt the IPhone or IPad to move the goo ball so he can eat things required to grow.
Dingo Games provided this description of Tasty Planet 2 Back for Seconds:
“Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds is the sequel to Dingo Games’ popular iPhone game, Tasty Planet. The sequel has many improvements over the original. Levels can now span vastly different object sizes; players can grow from the size of an amoeba to the size a galaxy within a single level. There is also a huge variety of new entities that players get to eat.
The game’s story begins with the goo eating a time machine, causing him to be sent back in time. Players will eat their way through six different time periods: modern, Late Cretaceous (i.e. dinosaurs), Ancient Egypt, Ancient Rome, Feudal Japan, and the distant future. Each time period features a unique set of objects for players to eat. Mice, cats, Tyrannosaurus Rex, mummies, gladiators, and flying saucers are just a few of the hundreds of objects available for consumption.
Also released today was the iPad version of the game, Tasty Planet: Back for Seconds HD. This version of the game uses the iPad’s larger screen for a two player cooperative campaign mode in which each player controls their own goo.”
8 Bit Grenade released Snap Trap for the iPhone 3 GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 3rd & 4th generation iPod Touch priced at $2.99. 8 Bit Grenade says Snap Trap uses Apple’s touch screen technology, in an unique and intuitive way. We aren’t sure about that but the game looks like a souped version of the classic game Snake and consumers think twice about paying $2.99 for Snap Trap. (more…)
Hidden Variable Studios released Bag It!, a new grocery bagging puzzle mobile game, on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android devices. Bag It, offers 50 levels of puzzles and challenges. The game player must bag virtual grocery items like Eggs, milk, potato ships ideally without breaking them. You are able to re-arrange items in the bag, even turning items right side up. I wonder if professional grocery store baggers would consistently score higher than the non bagging human. Bag It includes some elements from Tetris but it’s a little more involved. Bag It costs $0.99 on the iOS platform and $1.99 on the Android platform. We have an email into Hidden Variable Studio’s contact asking them to explain the price differential and will update this post when they respond. (more…)

Written by The Ball, one of the stars of the game Tap’N’Roll by Digital Prunes.
Wow, these magnets! They are so strong! It took me some bruises and some quick thinking to get around them. And you see, sometimes I do need them – to give me a push in the right direction. But boy, if you make me linger for too long in my heavy metal personality, I will not enjoy crashing into them, dragged and warped by their mantic field. So watch out, I am totally at the mercy of your skillful tapping. (more…)
