Today's Best Apps: Aureus, Bubble Trouble Space And Dynamite Candles

The App Store takes delivery of hundreds of new apps per day. The overwhelming scene makes it possible to easily overlook an exciting game, valuable productivity suite, etc. However, we have a solution. Today’s Best Apps tackles this problem by providing you with a handpicked and tested list of apps that are truly worth your consideration each and everyday.

iPhone:

Aureus by Philippe Champeaux ($1.99, 14.2 MB): This matching game adds the exciting difficulty of darkness. There will only be a few seconds at the beginning of each match before the primary illumination is eliminated. Following, the only tool is your finger, which lights a small area when touching the screen. If you have a good memory, highlighting the common groups of shapes shouldn't be much more difficulty than the standard match-3 game. However, any need to remind yourself using a spotlight-style search will waste a lot of valuable time. The game features Game Center leaderboards and achievements, purchasable power-ups, and three play modes: Endurance continues as long as you can replenish the energy meter by quickly constructing matches, Time Trial is restricted to 90-seconds, and Play Online allows competition against up to three other opponents.

Bubble Trouble Space by Quadrimind ($0.89, 30.0 MB): Careful utilization of the many laws of physics will provide great success in this quirky puzzler. In a war of the bubbles, your job is to control the blue bubble cannon and help wrangle up the evil orange bubbles. With various obstacles and changing gravity, precision shots will require accurate calculations involving inertia, resistance, elasticity, etc. Of course, the more efficient you are, i.e., the less shots taken, the greater the reward. The game features 120 levels spanning three environments, colorful Retina display-optimized graphics, one touch control, and Game Center integration. A trial version is also available.

Universal:

Dynamite Candles by Kelvin Dobell (Free, 19.7 MB): Traditionally, distinguishing all of the flames is the goal when celebration candles are involved. However, this part simulation and part arcade game switches the challenge to lighting the candles. You'll face the hassle of wind and some rain showers, but those certainly aren't the worst troubles. The real difficulties involve a limited time to light each wick and the very unfortunate mixture of TNT sticks. Accidentally igniting high explosives doesn't quite compare to joke candles. Put simply, don't make that mistake. The game features good 3-D graphics and effects, power-ups, Game Center integration, and two play modes: standard and super fast-paced.

iPad:

Bubble Trouble Space HD by Quadrimind ($1.79, 78.4 MB): Careful utilization of the many laws of physics will provide great success in this quirky puzzler. In a war of the bubbles, your job is to control the blue bubble cannon and help wrangle up the evil orange bubbles. With various obstacles and changing gravity, precision shots will require accurate calculations involving inertia, resistance, elasticity, etc. Of course, the more efficient you are, i.e., the less shots taken, the greater the reward. The game features 120 levels spanning three environments, colorful Retina display-optimized graphics, one touch control, and Game Center integration. A trial version is also available.
