Star Hound ($0.99 → Free, 29.1 MB): Reach for the stars as a jetpack-equipped dog in this endless runner from the Kieffer Bros. Race across the rooftops and clear gaps by jumping, flying, or hooking your way over them. Oh, did I forget to mention that your dog also carries around a grappling hook wherever he goes? Well, he does, and it's pretty awesome. Just keep in mind that your jetpack has a limited amount of fuel, but it can be recharged. The game also includes checkpoints, and leaderboards via Game Center.

Star Hound is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 20 ratings.

TAPGEM ($0.99 → Free, 5.5 MB): I hope you're ready for a challenge, because this puzzle game is going to consume you. The object of the game is to place red gems all over the board so that the number of them matches the number at the end of each row and column. But there is one additional detail that complicates things: you must also make sure that each color on the board contains four and only four gems. Good luck with that! The game includes a total of 60 levels with increasing difficulty. An additional 60 levels are now available via in-app purchase.

TAPGEM is available for free for a limited time. It has a 5-star rating with a total of 14 ratings.

King of Opera ($1.99 → Free, 35.1 MB): Fight for fame and become the King of Opera in this crazy arcade game. The object is to bounce your opponents off of the platform and out of the spotlight by getting your singer to run into them. The only catch is that your opera singer is constantly spinning, making it difficult to get him going in the right direction. The game includes multiple modes, the ability to play with three other friends on the same device, and achievements via Game Center.

King of Opera is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4.5-star rating with a total of 89 ratings.


Paper Climb ($0.99 → Free, 26.8 MB): You won't find another endless climbing game like this one in the entire App Store. It puts you in full control of your climber, with your index and middle fingers handling the movement of the hands and your thumb controlling the feet. Try to grab onto holes in the paper to work your way up while avoiding all of the dangerous obstacles. The best part is, you can catch up on the latest news from Twitter since the paper's text is populated from the popular social networking service. The game also includes achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Paper Climb is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 5 ratings.
