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
A new game called Cross the Line presents an interesting challenge for us because we can’t decide if the folks behind this game Chilibite Games(the publisher) and Codi Games (The creator) are lazy or brilliant. Consumers can play this puzzle game on both the iOS and Android platforms for $1.99.
Cross The Line offers a deceptively simple physics puzzle game which takes place on a blackboard. You must direct a ball over a line with one single swipe, unlike physics puzzlers like Angry Birds where you may get three or four chances to destroy the target.
You can bounce the ball off objects like blocks and the wall while aiming for power-up earning stars. To be clear you aren’t using the slingshot like mechanic in many games like Angry Birds. You are simply flinging the ball once. The puzzles get extremely difficult for those of you who get lost in your showers.
Gotta love those ambient music playing iOS puzzle games. We have been addicted to one called Connectrode since March of 2012. Then we discovered Dark Nebula and now comes Freeze!from German based Frozen Gun Games. (more…)
What do you get when you blend Disney’s Where’s My Water with Rovio’s Angry Birds? A game called Atomic Frogs from Cocos Games available both in a free limited version and a full paid version ($1.99) for the IPhone and IPad. (more…)
Too Easy Games released Trap Mansion, a sliding puzzle game consumers can play on their IPhones and IPads. Trap Mansion costs $0.99.
Trap Mansion takes place in a haunted mansion filled with deadly traps like cracked floors and ghostly sword swinging knights. The Trap Mansion game players guides different individuals by running, sliding and jumping around the obstacles. Trap Mansion plays better on the IPad unless you have really tiny nimble fingers.
RedTribe, an Australian based game developer released Hairy Balls, a free puzzle game for the ios platform consumers can download to their IPhone and IPad devices. The Hairy Balls game offers an unoriginal sliding puzzle game mechanism. Each level takes place on what looks like a flat grassy elevated plain. You must slide the balls around the grassy plain to solve the level. It’s free to play but you can buy hints to help speed up the progress.
One word of warning. The game sends us push messages. They didn’t ask for our permission to do this upfront like most games do and we cannot find a way to turn them off. Not cool.
Rovio, kings the gaming world, released Bad Piggies, a downloadable video game playable on the iOS, Android, PC and Mac platforms.

According to their web site, Rovio says that this Bad Piggies game will be the first of a whole line of games starring the bird hating pigs as the heroes. (more…)
Netherlands based Indie game developer Digital Dreams released Cowbeam, a confusing mess of a seek n find with hints puzzle game for the iOS platform priced at $1.99 but consumers can buy for the first week at $0.99. The game confused us equally on the IPhone and the IPad. (more…)
