You will find Apple App store flooded with multitude of games ranging in categories. Angry Birds, Paper toss, Guitar Hero and Asphalt racing collection are some of the gaming gems that you are gonna find on App store. You can fill your smartphone gaming appetite once you indulge into the massive gaming galaxy that iTunes app store offers. But one evident drawback of this huge collection is that it takes substantial amount of time to discover a game that ideally matches your taste. But now there is a new app on the block that will surely help iOS users to get rid of this problem.

What is Decide-o-Tron?

Decide-o-Tron app

 Well Decide-o-Tron is basically an iOS application that automatically recommends games to users based on some pre-set criteria. The app will bear the headache of deciding that amongst the huge collection of games, what gaming titles suit you and for whom you should spend. Plus the app has a very detailed criteria settings, so you can expect optimal results from it.

The app also boasts a detail step-by-step tutorial, just go through it so that you can get to know about all the customization processes and features that this app offers. Even if you think that you are a geek and don’t need to go through the tutorial, I will recommend you to do the otherwise.

Using Decide-o-Tron

Once the tutorial is over, app will ask from you that what all gaming platforms you own or play. The platforms you will choose in this step will act as a filter, because whenever you are gonna search for games in future the app will only search for those titles that belong to the platforms you have selected.

The search feature of the app is quite powerful, I personally like the Bar code scanning option. First of all you will have to add games to app’s library so that the recommendation thing can work. It is not necessary that you only add those games in the library that you own, users can add any game they like in the Wish List.

Decide-o-tron App 2

Decide-o-Tron generates game recommendations based on the criteria values, these values include platform-Release date-Review score and most important of all, Genre.

I will definitely recommend this app as must download for all the iPhone/iPad users. The gaming recommendations are really very useful and it lessens the hassle of finding games by browsing app store manually.

Decide-o-Tron is available as a free download from Apple App store.

3 Free iPhone Games You Should Play For The Weekend

No matter what genre players prefer, there’s a free app in the App Store that will hit the spot.  And with so many fantastic free games just waiting to be played, why would players confine themselves to one genre anyway?  Variety is the spice of life, and it’s also a great way to spice up an iPhone’s game folder.  Check out this list of the very best of the best free iPhone games to find one that’s just right—or try them all out.

Fruit Ninja Lite

Fruit Ninja Lite gives players a chance to test their speed and concentration in a very unusual dojo.  This casual but addictive game has the ninja trainee slashing fresh fruits in mid-air.  As the lite version of a paid app, Fruit Ninja Lite’s features are limited.  But there’s something ever so satisfying about slicing a flying ripe watermelon in half before it hits the ground, and players will be kicking themselves if they pass this fun little free game up.

Goal Battle

Not all free games are just limited previews, though.  Thankfully, some developers have gone all out on their free offerings, and Goal Battle is an excellent iPhone soccer game.  Tight focus, fantastic 3D animation, and gorgeous game play complement Goal Battle’s central attraction: online multiplayer mode.  Players pit their personalized characters against other online players, in a one-on-one goal-kick scoring battle to prove who has what it takes.  It’s a game artfully designed to unlease every player’s competitive side.  Leaderboards track whose scoring abilities are ruling the field, but these are secondary to the heady rush of competing against another player in real time, goal for goal.  Watching one’s opponents progress makes perfecting goal kicking skills that much more enjoyable.  And to really make an impression, players customize their characters to best express themselves or their team spirit.

MyPet CUBY

Looking for a complete change of pace?  My Pet Cuby is a virtual pet that goes about his adorable day in players’ iPhones.  It’s a lot like other virtual pet game options—players keep Cuby’s happiness meter up with pets on the head, games of ball, and of course, by giving him his favorite delicious snacks. But Cuby has a few tricks that are all his own, too.  Players are rewarded for keeping their little pal happy when Cuby demonstrates delightful tricks.  He can sing and play guitar, and horse around with a paper airplane.  And keeping Cuby 100% happy means in-game rewards, like new outfits and environments for the little guy.

This is only a small selection of the free games available in the App Store.  Players can round out their game selection with RPGs, first-person shooters, farming simulations, and practically any other type of game they can think of.  Three of the best are profiled here, but don’t stop there!  Players should get the most from their iPhone gaming experience not by finding the perfect game, but by finding five… or ten… or twenty games that they can’t put down!

Starfront: Collision iPhone Game Review

If you loved Starcraft for the PC and Mac you’ll love Gameloft’s latest incarnation for the iTunes Apstore. Starfront: Collision is an RTS game that takes the player onto the planet Sinistral, where an epic battle begins over control of the rare Xenodium crystals.

Starfront’s game mechanics are very similar to any RTS game. You’ll begin each map with only a few units and will need to mine for resources to build up your home base. Once you start collecting enough resources you’ll be able to build more structures, and subsequently train and upgrade battle units to destroy your enemy.

A big chunk of the game will be spent in the campaign mode with up to three playable races. You will begin as the Consortium. They are humans who land on Sinistral to mine for the Xenodium crystals. Soon you will take the role of the indigenous insect-like Myriad who is trying to stop the Consortium. Finally the advanced-robotic Warden race will appear to try to manipulate things in their own favor.  Each race is equally balanced and will have different set of upgrades and army units that will give them their own unique feel.

 

 

Controls are intuitive and easy to use. Just tap on the screen and drag to pan the area and pinch your fingers to select multiple units. After you select your units you can tap to force them to attack or tap and hold for them to move without attacking. There is also a sidebar that will be used to build structures. Actions were performed with ease and I was surprised that I could do everything on my iPhone as if it was a computer. Some of you may be worried about the iPhone’s small screen as it does hinder gameplay. But Gameloft ingeniously created the controls so that nothing seemed cluttered at all.

In addition to the campaign mode, there is also a single-player skirmish mode and an exciting multiplayer mode. The skirmish mode will feature seven different maps for you to play against any of the three races. Multiplayer mode was my favorite and can support up to four players on of five different maps.

 

 

The graphics are stunning and vivid. Starfront takes advantages of the iPhone’s Retina Display and presents beautifully 3-D rendered environments. Gameplay is not laggy and is incredibly smooth which makes me wonder how they fit everything into such a small package. As with other Gameloft titles, music design is excellent and features an orchestra soundtrack that makes the gameplay feel epic.

Starfront: Collision is a must have for RTS fans. The game is intriguing and exciting and with multiplayer options it raises the gameplay value immensely.

Currently, Starfront: Collision is available as a free download but players can only play one campaign mission. If you want to continue playing you will have to shell out $6.99 via in-app purchase but with that price you’ll unlock all the campaign missions (17 in total), skirmish mode and the online multiplayer mode.

iPhone/iPad Game App Review: Dead Space

Dead Space™ is a sci-fi action game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. This game features enough blood and violence to make any FPS gamer satisfied. While some people stated that this game was frightening, it was far from it. However, blood drenched corpses will fall from the corridors and the dark atmosphere should be enough for some of the more casual gamers to tremble.

You are Vandal who is left alone to fend for himself as menacing alien beings called Necromorphs try to attack and eat you for dinner.  If you have experience playing any third person shooter for the iOS device then you should have no problem navigating through this game. You will use the left side of the screen to either run, or walk and the right side of the screen will be used for aiming and controlling your point of view.

Those who are familiar with the console version should see recognizable abilities and weapons. You will have several weapons such as the plasma saw along with gadgets like the kinesis and stasis module.  Kinesis will use some kind of laser type force to pick up and throw objects that you normally couldn’t do with your own strength. And the stasis module is also available and will allow you to form a force field around a Necromorph, essentially paralyzing it and leaving it open for you to gleefully kill.

The game offers eleven exciting chapters which should take from anywhere between 4-10 hours. The game is full of suspense and you might notice your pulse rising just a bit. The graphics are beautiful and the sound effects are really realistic. Those who actually watch the cut scenes will also be satisfied with the voice over’s. This game is really an excellent FPS game and those who are a fan of them will definitely need to check this game out!. The cost of this game is $6.99.
