Robot Rampage

Finally! I found a game that holds my attention until the iPhone battery gets low.

Punch, stomp and kick your way through city blocks. Be careful as your enemy sneaks up on you from all directions.

It’s a simple but fun game. See how many city blocks you can destroy before the enemy gets you. Be warned, the enemy will pop up when you least expect it, so make sure you keep a good watch everywhere you go.

I managed to destroy 12 1/2 blocks before I was gunned down by a helicopter.

Try and beat me if you can!

Taptu Touch Search (free)

An interesting way to approach an old topic, web search.

When you open the app, it displays a home page with todays news in headline form. On the bottom of the home page, various websites scroll past. In this review, I’ll use the NFL draft as an example.

Tapping on it brings you a selection of web sites which discuss this topic. There are dozens to chose from, no matter what your opinion of the selection process was. I stopped counting at 37 sites, which included photos (can be saved to camera roll), blogs and Twitter posts.

Tapping on the search icon in the upper right hand corner brings a drop down menu in fan form.

A sample of the topics include:

  • iPhone Sites
  • Apps & Games
  • Wikipedia
  • Blogs
  • Videos
  • News and Sports
  • Images

And much more

You can also post to Twitter and Facebook. You can search for any topic not listed and it pops up in easy to follow form. Just an easy and enjoyable way to do search.

Life Mobile

Since 1936, Life has been the go-to magazine for high-glossy photographs of current and past events.

With their app, Life Mobile, you can now see dozens of photos, from The Men Who Killed Lincoln, the Civil War, up to The Best of 2009.

You can pinch & zoom to enlarge for a better view.

Any prints that you would like to own may be purchased on their on-line store.

For fun they have included “CoverMaker”. You can put any photo you have in your iPhone library on the cover of Life magazine. Share it with family, friends, FaceBook and more. Show the world how famous you are.

Categories are:

  • Editors Picks
  • News
  • Celebrities
  • Sports
  • Animals
  • Travel

The last section is a game called “Photo Face-Off”. It pits two photographs against each other and you must choose the one that readers like the most in order to win. At the end of the round, your score will tell you if you have a good eye for photography.

A “must have app” for history buffs.
