Editor’s Choice: Top 5 Apps of the week [Mosaique, Daddy was a thief, Impossible Road & more]

On May 13, 2013

For all those who haven’t had the time or were too lazy to search the App Store, we make things easy for you. See here are our top picks for this week.

Mosaiquie ($0.99)

Mosaiquie is one of the most uniquely designed game I’ve recently had my eyes on. The gameplay of Mosaique is has the same virtue with a puzzling experience like never before. To begin with, you’ve some colored blocks on the board and another colored block which you’ve to strategically shoot into them. The ‘striker’ blasts all similar colored blocks on the way or switches with a dissimilar one. Think ahead, heap some blocks and ‘poof’ them all to get more points. Know what’s surprising? Mosaique doesn’t have a timer! Take as long as you want and complete the 7 levels of increasing difficulties, to be the master. Don’t worry if you finish the game once. Thanks to algorithmic generated levels, you’ll have an unlimited supply of levels for your brain’s regular workout.


Daddy was a Thief ($1.99)

This is another unique game where you play the role of a thief infiltrating deep into a building, collecting gold on his way. ‘Daddy was a Thief’ is an one-hand endless gamer,  which is real simple, yet addictive.  You are at the top of a Petronas or something even taller, with an unlimited array of floors. Swipe down and you’ll break your ground, landing below. Each floor has a unique obstacle like missiles, cops, angry grannies, lasers etc to put you behind the bars and on the bright side, some levels have heavy tubs, chilling refrigerators etc which can help you in the loot.


Little Dead Riding Hood ($2.99)

This is not a game but a story book. “For children?”, you might ask. Well, I wouldn’t quite put it that way. This is more of a horror story, telling the tale of Little Red Riding Hood as a ghost. Available both in English and Spanish, Little Dead Riding Hood portrays how the classic tale’s heroine and her grandmother dodges some fatal attacks by the Wolf Lupito. It is the wonderful caricatures, tender animations and the bold announcements that projects over the rather vague story-line.  Perfect for kids, I guess!


Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol (Free)

Sid Meier is a well know name in the gaming world and his latest release for iOS is Sid Meier’s Ace Patrol, a turn-based air defense game. Strategy is the key where you manipulate each step of your air borne colleagues and machinery. Each turn gives you 9 directions to move or to attack, if enemy is within range. As you climb levels, more features and options are unlocked. Crack the perfect mix of defense and offense and the game is yours.


Impossible Road ($1.99) 

Impossible it is and you really need to play it, to know it! You have the most irregular, roller coaster type, twisty, curly, curvy & blah & blah  road and you need your fast paced white ball to make it as far as possible. Let me tell you, sometimes you couldn’t even reach a point right in front of you, on the track. Luckily, once fallen, we may maneuver and land back to some other part of the track which makes it “less impossible”. The challenge offered by the game is surprisingly the base of its addiction. Yet, your hands will have a great exercise playing with this 30 megabyte baby.
