Today's Best Apps: Star Thief And Hyperlines

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. Remember: Even though in-app purchases typically require your iTunes Store password for processing, you can further prevent them and other unauthorized actions by enabling local restrictions using the passcode locked iOS parental controls.

iPhone:

Hyperlines by Jonah Wilberg (Free, 29.0 MB): Swipe and slide in this fast-paced puzzler to exercise and entertain your mind one match at a time. As the 8-by-8 grid begins to fill with colored blocks, align five or more into same-colored rows and columns as quickly as possible to keep the area clear and earn points. Unlike similar games, the good news is that you may move the squares into any free position just by dragging a line from the block to an open cell, even if the path isn't clear. Play very efficiently and be proudly victorious. Execute too many careless actions and the experience will most definitely be short and shameful. The game features 2.5-D graphics, endless play, two levels of difficulty, plus Game Center leaderboards and achievements.

Universal:

Star Thief by Bright Night Games ($2.99, 19.3 MB): Melvin the moon needs your help to save Sammy and the other stars in this deceptively easy side-scrolling action-arcade game. What happened? The twinkly points of light were snatched from the sky and imprisoned at ground level. To restore the sparkles of space, tap and swipe the stars as they appear, but do so quickly as time is short and the journey long. So long that hazards are certain to surface, forcing you to react calmly and cleverly or face failure. The game features hand-drawn graphics, upbeat soundtrack, multi-touch support, 50 levels spanning four worlds, and Game Center achievements.

iPad:

Hyperlines HD by Jonah Wilberg ($2.99, 30.1 MB): Swipe and slide in this fast-paced puzzler to exercise and entertain your mind one match at a time.

Unlike similar games, the good news is that you may move the squares into any free position just by dragging a line from the block to an open cell, even if the path isn't clear.
