FDG Entertainment released Tower Boxing, a vertical endless runner style game for free on both the iOS and Google Play/Android platform this week. You play a boxer who punches buildings from either the left or right sides of the structure by tapping the screen. You collect coins as you avoid the cement deck outcropping which crunches the boxer and terminates the session. The FDG team used a pixelated visual style and Tower Boxing is deceptively difficult which may make it addicting. (more…)

Williamspurrrrg HD features hipster cats who live in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) NY, the Hipster capital of the world according to some folks.

Two or more humans can play it or one dextrous person can give it a whirl. Everyone will enjoy Williamsprrrrg except maybe hipster mice.
Almost Pinball from Oakland, CA based Red Adept is almost perfect played on the iPhone and iPad. Why do they call it Almost Pinball? They combined elements of pinball – the flippers, a ball, bumpers and obstacles with a physics/puzzle mechanic to make a really great pinball game.
Yes there’s a ball but the ball’s movement resembles a hard rubber ball like a lacrosse ball rather than a steel pinball. Its much harder to control the ball with the flippers as you would with a steel ball in a traditional pinball game. The Red Adept team lined in the inside walls of each play area with a soft bumper which can accelerate the ball’s velocity.
The play area resembles a physics action puzzler rather traditional pinball game with lights whistles and bells. It doesn’t matter – the game requires smart thinking in addition to the quick reflexes one needs to get a high score. Yes there’s multi-flippers and multi balls and a lot of fun. Almost Pinball blows away Zen Pinball. Almost Pinball costs $0.99
