Today's Best Apps: Mine Base Chess & Checkers, Kick The Buddy: No Mercy And More

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. Reckless Death Race is not a new game, however, it is being highlighting now due to the release of an ad-free version.

iPhone:

Kick the Buddy: No Mercy by Crustalli ($0.99, 316.9 MB): This is the latest entry of the stress relieving rag doll simulator. Put simply, you shoot, smash, poison, burn, and otherwise torture defenseless Buddy in a safe environment, well, safe to you and other real people. A few items are provided for free, such as a mace and grenades, but the remainder must be earned by completing objectives. The game features realistic physics, 3-D graphics, whacky and sometimes offensive commentary, various items and environments, scene capture and sharing, the option to apply a portrait photo to Buddy, as well as a Game Center leaderboard based on experience points and achievements.

Universal:

Mine Base Chess & Checkers by Ricardo Teixeira ($0.99, 22.3 MB): Chess and Checkers are two of the most challenging turn-based strategy board games, however, this variant of both classics adds three new offensive elements for greater difficulty. Mines are deployed before regular play begins and invisible to opponents. A rechargeable lightning-style death ray can destroy a single piece in one shot. Disabled by default, "dead zones" occur when mines detonate and render parts of the board unusable. The game features quality 3-D graphics and effects, single player mode against an AI, direct connect online multiplayer mode, multiple themes, as well as several preference options for each element. An ad-supported trial version is available.

Reckless Death Race - Road Rally Racing by Slightly Social ($2.99, 50.4 MB): Get your reflexes prepped for this action-packed steampunk-style combat racing game. What could be the mobsters wars of the future, you zoom around close encounter tracks in weapon and boost equipped vintage cars with hover conversions. Earning first place through great driving is the ultimate goal, however, simply eliminating all opponents also gets the job done. Experience, especially victories, results in rewards good towards vehicle upgrades and the chance to compete in a larger range of events. The game features 3-D graphics, six cars, three courses, various skill level opponents, adjustable camera and controls, as well as Game Center leaderboards and achievements. An ad-supported version is available.
