Today's Best Apps: Breaking Blocks, Signal To The Stars And Galactic Conflict RTS

March 13, 2013
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.


Breaking Blocks by Tapinator,LLC (Free, 25.7 MB): Give your mind a workout with this fast-paced 3-D tetromino puzzle game. Unlike Tetris and similar games, there's no need to worry about block color, just fully filling in each horizontal layer. You'll have 20 seconds before the block is automatically dropped into place, but the controls are quite efficient. All it takes is a simple drag to target the grid position and rotation is done by tapping axis spin arrows. Strive to improve your personal best and reach the top of the Game Center leaderboard.

Signal to the Stars by Made with Marmalade (Free, 45.3 MB): In this maze-like puzzler, you must help Signal the alien get back home by creating a message in the form of crop circles. Signal wants to be certain his distress call is seen, therefore, it needs to take up the entire area. So, you need to figure out how to travel across every section of the fields, pasture, and lawn without overlapping the path because that will mess up the message. At first, the task isn't too tough, but soon Signal will be faced with avoiding angry farmers and other hazards. The game features top-down 3-D graphics, 120 levels spanning four environments, and a star rating system.

Galactic Conflict RTS by Bitmen Studios ($5.99, 92.3 MB): Prove that you have what it takes to be a triumphant leader in this sci-fi real-time strategy game. Being a commander of Terran or Pyros outposts and forces has many responsibilities, including the construction of buildings and spacecraft, monitoring of resources, as well as battle control of the fleet. You'll wage war against AI or human controlled enemies throughout variously sized regions of space. There's the multi-battle mission-based Campaign mode, single battle Skirmish mode, or online multiplayer. Online matches are unranked 1 vs. 1 and 2 vs. 2 or 1 vs. 1 ranked. The game also features 2.5-D graphics, three difficulty levels for the AI, seven maps, and a Game Center leaderboard for each of the three online play modes.
