Humans defending vampires? What is the world coming to? Clearly the folks at CBE Software haven’t seen the latest season of True Blood because they released a puzzle game on the iOS platform called Crazy Vampires where you (the human) must guide the Vampires to their crypts before daylight burns them blacker than over done toast.
As we mentioned about you must save the Vampires through the labyrinths to their crypts. You do this by rotating parts of the labyrinth to create new paths, using garlic and employing some creative use of spider webs all to redirect the vamps to their sleeping quarters.
iOS gamers can download a free version of Crazy Vampires which comes with 12 playable levels and 53 unlockable levels with a $1.99 purchase or you can buy the whole game for $1.99 upfront. Crazy Vampires combines reverse Tower Defense with puzzle elements to offer a biting good time.
Do you like word games? Do you like games like Bejeweled and Diamond Dash? If answered “yes” to these extremely challenging questions then you will enjoy Word Carnivale, a new word puzzle game created by San Diego based Playscreen.
In the playful carnivale themed Word Carnivale puzzle game you must create words from the letters on the balloons before the timer runs out. When you successfully create a word the balloons pop and balloons with new letters replace them. The game forces you to open an account using your Facebook login data or an email address. We guess this encourages virtual social interaction but we this irritates us. Just let us play the game without having to let the world know what we are doing. Is that too much too ask?
Consumers can play Word Carnivale on their IPhone, IPad, and IPod Touch devices for free as long they don’t mind advertising. You can pay $2.99 to remove the ads permanently. Word Carnivale Free IPhone Word Puzzle Game

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.
