Today's Best Apps: BitBattle And Thunderspace

he 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:

Thunderspace by Franz Bruckhoff ($0.99, 42.6 MB): This impressively realistic thunderstorm simulating relaxation app will have you calm and resting in no time. At the core are wonderfully reproduced sounds in your choice of eight virtual 3-D environments, such as an indoor representation with raindrops smacking the rooftop or outdoor themes featuring droplets beautifully plunging into a waterscape as well as the songs of birds, frogs, etc during a downpour in the rainforest. Amazing indeed, however, there's more. To complete the experience, the app utilizes the LED flash of your iDevice to recreate the appearance of lightning, which may be disabled, if desired or not appropriate. Two of the themes are provided as part of the initial purchase, whereas the other six remain in looping sample mode and available to unlock for an additional $0.99 each.

Universal:

BitBattle by Alvaro Gutierrez Lorenzo (Free, 56.5 MB): Prove that you are a triumphant leader in this action-packed arcade strategy game. Every battle is epic as you and an opponent send streams and waves of warriors towards one another in a seemingly endless clash to significantly overpower the other and conquer their territory. Victory involves successfully reaching the opposite side of the field with dozens of units, sometimes 25, sometimes 50, sometimes more, in addition to well executed defensive reactions. As for commands, the variably skilled heroes may be distributed however you see fit across the four strike paths. However, each unit does require a regeneration time and, therefore, must be timely organized. The game features pixelated graphics, 12 chiptunes choices, single battle and survival solo player modes as well as a two person side-by-side tabletop multiplayer, eight unlockable 5-unit teams, multiple battlefield themes, plus Game Center achievements and a Survival mode leaderboard.
