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.

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


Trial By Survival by Nah-Meen Studios LLC (Free, 61.9 MB): In this action-RPG, the zombie apocalypse has occurred, paranoia and greed have set in, you've been banished to the wastelands, and the only thing left is to survive. Despite how grim the exiling seems at first, you're determined to stay alive as well as prove your worthiness and basic loyalty to the colony. With just a crowbar, scavenge the ruins of civilization to find treasures for trade, better weapons, ammunition, and other resources. Of course, there'll also be the scary and frustrating need to pulverize the even less fortunate people who are now out to consume your tasty flesh and organs. So, can you endure hours of such alertness and patience? Great, because stamina is going to be essential as nights appear to get longer and the progress slow. The game features top-down hand-drawn 2-D graphics, somber soundtrack, campaign-style Survival mode and bonus wave-type defense Arena mode, dynamic campaign map with multiple area choices, 18 weapons to collect, power-up "perks," dual-stick or touch controls, and three level types: public area scavenging, opponent-specific search and raid, and facing the horde.

Abyss Attack by Chillingo Ltd ($0.99, 46.4 MB): Take an exciting trip to the mysterious depths of the ocean in this underwater-themed vertical shooter. What will you discover in the darkness of the extreme deep? Beautiful luminescent creatures swimming about in what seems like a wonderful musical piece. Unfortunately, things aren't quite so charming once the beings begin to attack the submarine. Since you have no way to reason with the creatures, there's no other choice than to attack in self-defense. Quickly and elegantly move the sub around the trench using your finger as the auto-firing cannons fulfill the other task, destruction. Along the way, gather the priceless gems that you can trade for equipment upgrades, such as enhanced weapons or entirely new subs with specific advantages. If you're extra talented, that is, beyond simply surviving, strive to complete the bonus goals offered before each run. The game features fluorescent 3-D graphics, enchanting soundtrack, endless play, challenging boss battles, ranking system with permanent bonuses, six submarines, 11 upgrades and power-ups, Facebook integration, as well as Game Center achievements and leaderboard.
