This fun, light hearted seasonal app is free and quite addictive! You build mushroom houses for you’re Smurfs to move into and then you create plots of land to grow crops. In growing these crops you get XP and golden coins. There are also challenges set to you by Papa Smurf where you get extra XP for completing. In levelling up you unlock certain features like houses, plants and much more. This is such a fun and addictive app, you will be immersed.

You are the Assassin in this free game, taking down mobsters, criminals and generally bad guys. You meet your array of shady contacts, all have a price but all reap rewards. Select your weapon form 20 distinctive sniper rifles, hand guns, assault rifles, submachine guns and even tranquilizers. Spot your target, zoom in, breath in and take the shot, all with this awesome action shooter. You can go for headshots for extra cash and XP but, there is a time limit so don’t spend all day aiming. You’re job could be a simple shot or an ambush! With the vast amount of customisable aspects of this game it is one of my favourite shooters on the App Store.

Xbox: Dashboard Update

The New Design - Looking good!

The next annual November Xbox Dashboard update is said to be more than routine. For starters your interface will change, getting a ‘new’ look. Most of us will hate it at first, as you do, but I hope it will be worth while. What may prove most interesting is what the new Dashboard will bring to the table. You may have seen the vast amount of TV broadcasters Microsoft have signed to bring your TV fix. The likes of YouTube and Bing have been accommodated in the new Dash. The new Dash is thought to have a ‘App’ tab to bring a third-party to the Marketplace – reminds me of the Apple ‘App Store’, surely Microsoft aren’t copying Apple? Will these ‘Apps’ be played on though, I mean with the vast amount of Games out there do we really need ‘Apps’?

The Kinect will be integrated within the Dash aswell – Bing will have complete voice control and gestures will be used to cycle through the Dash menu. Finally Microsoft are using their inventions. The update is dated on November 15th 2011 but looks more November 25th 2011.

App Spotlight: High Noon

High Noon Duel

Howdy Cowboy, get your Gunslinging buddies for this Wild West Shootout! This fun game is free and expertly uses the accelerometer, where you go from a stance (your iPod/iPhone is pointing down) then you quickly whip it up at take aim. You control everything from the aim to how many bullets you reload by. So face off an opponent with your trusty revolver. You level up by earning gold which you can then go on to buy new guns (revolvers and rifles), aids – like a bit of whisky to make the pain go away, clothes and haircuts to accessorize your guy. It’s quite an adrenaline packed game for an iPod! Good luck!

App Spotlight: Rugby Kicks

Rugby Kicks 'Break The Wall' game mode

I’m not usually a sporting game fan but this game is topical due to The Rugby Word Cup finishing, only days ago. This game is like ‘Paper Toss’ and just as addictive but it’s free!. You are a rugby player with the posts in sight, you swipe the screen up and with a slight gradient to determine the direction, the speed at which you swipe determines the power of the ball. It starts off quite easy but looks to get harder as you earn more points. The points you earn can buy kit (not as important, just accessories) and other stadiums (international and club) with each of these has another game mode attached. First you start off with ‘beat The Clock’ where you have to get as many penalties as you can in 60 seconds. Once you have bought the ‘club stadium’ you get the ‘Hit The Target’ game mode which sort of explains its self. Once you have bought the ‘international stadium’ you get the ‘Break The Wall’ game mode, where there is a ‘wall’ in the posts and you repeatedly hit it to break it, again obvious. This game is great for a quick gaming fix, but I worry it might not do for a longer time but that’s, a matter of opinion.
