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

By •


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.

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!
