Appload™ - Doodle Jump, I Dig It, MiniGore, & MORE!!!

Author: TapDatApp // Category:
Hey everyone! Sorry for the delay between posts, the Tap Dat App™ Team has been on vacation. But now we are back! To help keep things running fast & smooth: we are going to start writing more segments called "Apploads™". These sections will be able to talk about more than one app in one post while still giving enough critique so that you can tell if the app is right for you or not. We have a lot to cover today, SO LET'S GET STARTED!

  • We recently download "Nano Rally" and were very disappointed with what it had to deliver. This game truly has a great concept where you drive around in a tiny car amongst giant objects in different rooms of a house. Unfortunately, the controls (having both tilt & arrows available) are just AWFUL. I became very frustrated with this game, which doesn't even have real live multiplayer racing, so honestly we give this one a "FORGET" until further updates...
  • Next on the review line is "Helium Voice". The creators were thoughtful enough to supply us with a free copy of the app, thus we had no reason not to try it out! If you're a kid, you'll love this thing. Plug in some headphones and use your mic to listen to your distorted chipmunk voice as you speak! It's basically "Fred: COME ALIVE!" Therefore, we are labeling this app: "GET"
  • "ShapeShape" is another game that's been getting a lot of publicity lately. We downloaded it and have pretty mixed reviews when it comes to the game. It has been updated frequently lately and some nice 3.0 features have been added but as for basic gameplay, I find ShapeShape lacks substance. It's a concept that for me, just doesn't have enough to keep me playing. You should check it out and read the info for yourself, but in real game critique, this lies under the category of "FORGET"
  • We also fianlly got "Doodle Jump" and I've pretty much fallen addicted to it. It's not rocket science, but it's still an easily lovable concept that keeps you tapping away at it! Not much else to say but the fact that it is definitely a good quality-made game, "GET"
  • "I Dig It" has leaped to Number 2 on the Top Paid Apps recently and it's no wonder why! The game rocks! If you've ever played "Motherload" on sites like MiniClip, you will without a doubt like this app! It's nicely detailed and has a REVOLUTIONARY droid-stick like control pad! Updates are continuing to happen and the game's great when you're bored or wanna play a serious app and make some high scores! "GET"
  • "MiniGore" is a recently released 3D action game with some really cool control droid-sticks and great graphics. The game has had hype and suspense around it since May and pretty much lives up to expectations. The only disappointment is that there is no storymode yet. New episodes/updates will be released regularly so there is definitely more to come. But currently, with only one "episode", the game is just a "shoot to get your high score" type-of scenario with no real obstacles or objectives besides that. Still, the game is pretty impressive and is sure to grow to even more than it already is, without a doubt I recommend you snag it while it's only $.99! "GET"
  • Another fun little app is "Balloonimals", the creators lent us a free copy of the app and we were thrilled to try it out! You blow into the mic and twist your phone around to create tons of 3D Balloon Animals! Great if you have children for it will really amaze & entertain them! If you have kids, "GET" this app!
  • We were also given a code for "Inhale Here" graciously and although it has the same concept as "Helium Voice" the app is still a little different. You talk in and then your 30 second clip is played back to you in a chipmunk-like voice afterwards. Not as responsive or interactive as the other title, so we give it a "POSSIBLE" rating.
Thank you so much for reading our blog and thanks once again to all the developers who are so kind as to let us test out their apps for free! Stay tunes for more Apploads™ ONLY on Tap Dat App™!

The Moron Test - 4 Stars

Author: TapDatApp // Category:

Now up for the latest review is "The Moron Test" - Check It Out:

The Moron Test was developed by DistinctDev for the iPhone & iTouch. Okay, so first off let me mention that I held out on this one for a long time. For quite awhile now, it has been in the Top 25 Most Paid Apps or so, but it never really seemed worth it until the latest update. But I can now sincerely say, I am happy I bought this game. The questions are tricky, clever, and well-thought out. It's a lot of fun to figure out and is nicely accommodated by charming graphics and catchy music. It's a real BLAST to hand this thing around at family parties and see people get stumped when they don't think all of their moves through thoroughly. This being said, I still hope that we will continue to see more updates as to make this game more fun for people who have already completed it and have spent enough time trying to be their own high score... For some cheap fun, I do suggest you buy (but strictly if it's on sale for $.99) The Moron Test - 4 Stars ☆☆☆
Pick up The Moron Test from the iTunes's App Section by clicking HERE!

Now we shall review “MUST.EAT.BIRDS.” - Check It Out:

MUST.EAT.BIRDS. was developed by Mediatonic for the iPhone & iTouch. MUST.EAT.BIRDS. is a really fun and charming game. Although you may have played a game like this where you slingshot something into the air before, this game still brings some unique qualities to the table and is also the best of these types of games. The app’s music is purely adorable and really made all of us here at the Tap Dat App™ Team want to get up and have a Japanese Dance Party!!! All in all, this game seriously delivers for only $.99 – you have cute graphics, fun & innovative game play (with a lot of levels, features, and assorted extras), and just simply tons of nice eye candy. The game has a very STRONG lasting appeal as you will want to whip this thing out several times amongst friends and scream out in Japanese style “MAXIMUM BAKE!” as the game does the same. For some awesome long-lasting fun that you will really enjoy, I definitely recommend you buy MUST.EAT.BIRDS. – 5 Stars ☆☆☆☆

The brilliant app now up for review is “Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid” - Check It Out:

Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid was developed by Hand Circus & ngmoco, Inc. exclusively for iPhone & iTouch 3.0 Firmware Users (Firmware 2.2 Support – Coming Soon!). Well folks, the revolutionary world of Rolando has DONE IT AGAIN! Rolando 2 is a HIT! We can not express how ecstatic we are about this game! It is indeed, MAGICAL! Here’s the load-down: Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid is a true masterpiece like no game ever before! The appeal and design is once again brilliantly charming! This time, 3D graphics have been added to the entire level design making the gameplay experience 10x more enjoyable! The game is just as fun as the original if not better! With newly added features such as vehicles, power-ups, explosive fruit, Interactive Plus+ 3.0 Exclusive Support, etc. the game is purely original and is not nearly a mock of it’s preceder. Once you get a small taste of this game, you will never want to stop playing. It’s so much fun and solving each piece of the story plot is EXCITING! Not to mention that it includes some of the best background music we’ve ever heard in an iPhone/iTouch app. Although the price may seem a bit high at $9.99, think of Rolando 2 as more of a video game than just an iTunes app. Thus, you really are getting a deal in the sense that you DEFINITELY get what you pay for with this one, - and with the improvements included, Rolando 2 blows away the first game in the series. For absolutely ANYONE, I suggest you buy the BEST game for the iPhone & iTouch – Rolando 2: Quest for the Golden Orchid – 5 Premium Stars ☆☆☆☆☆+

Ow My Balls! - 3 ½ Stars *READ RECENT ABOVE POST for FREE COPY!*

Author: TapDatApp // Category:

The app we are reviewing now is “Ow My Balls!” - Check It Out:

Ow My Balls! was developed by Jetson Creative LLC for the iPhone and iTouch. Ow My Balls is…a very interesting game. The objective is to swipe/kick a man off a building and make him cause as much destruction and pain to himself as you can. Fans of the Mike Judge movie “Idiocracy” will probably think of this whole concept as familiar, for the game was actually inspired by the fake television show “Oww My Balls!” shown in the film Idiocracy. While the game is amusing, the graphics are a bit amateur and the lasting appeal is a pretty short timespan. While all this may be true, the game is still entertaining and good for a few laughs. If you’re looking for some every-now-and-then $.99 fun or if you’re a real fan of Idiocracy, I recommend you buy Ow My Balls! – 3 ½ Stars ☆☆☆.5

To get Ow My Balls! from the iTunes app store, simply click HERE!
