iPhone and iPad Apps Weekly Digest: It’s games week (again) with a zombie twist!

Braaaaaaaaaiinnzz!


It’s time for our weekly digest of tiny iPhone reviews, courtesy of iPhoneTiny.com, with some extra commentary exclusive to Cult of Mac.

This time, we review Azkend HD, Dizzypad HD, GTA: Chinatown Wars, LetsTans 8-in-1, Plants vs. Zombies HD, Scrabble for iPad, Scrabble Tile Rack, and The Catching.


APP OF THE WEEK
Plants vs. Zombies HD: Superb, playable, amusing tower defence game with 50 levels and iPad-specific content. 5/5 $9.99 http://is.gd/c3aC5

Azkend HD (iPad): Pretty, addictive match game, but a little easy and offers little over cheaper iPhone version 4/5 $4.99 http://is.gd/c4du2

Dizzypad HD: One-thumb Frogger/Star Trigon cross. Prettier than iPhone version & free + in-app alt modes to buy. 3/5 Free http://is.gd/c7xG7

GTA: Chinatown Wars: Surprisingly solid & fun immersive ‘sandbox’ action/driving game with loads to do. 4/5 $9.99 http://is.gd/c4dIB

LetsTans 8-in-1: Tangram game. Loads of modes & options but unexciting. If you like tangrams, go for it, though. 2/5 Free http://is.gd/c7xUU

Scrabble for iPad: Decent, polished board-game conversion, despite network issues. $9.99 4/5 http://is.gd/bbTRR (US)

Scrabble Tile Rack: For use with iPad Scrabble. Awkward game-flow disappoints + network issues. 2/5 Free http://is.gd/c8XBa

The Catching: Port of Russian Game & Watch clones. Faithfully converted, but controls are iffy. 2/5 $0.99 http://is.gd/c8XML

Extra commentary? Not this week—I’m too busy playing Plants vs. Zombies HD! Braaaaaaiinzz!
