Today's Best Apps: Word Wheels, Tertiary And Micro Racing

March 17, 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.


Word Wheels by StackTracks, LLC (Free, 4.5 MB): In this freshly challenging turn-based word game, letter selection is done via small wheels rather than a bin of freely rearrangeable tiles. Each of the seven wheels offers four letter choices per slot, i.e., construction of up to a seven letter word. You are allowed to swap wheels, although, it will costs one point every time you switch. In addition, the last letter of submissions becomes the first letter of the next word. Matches are won by earning 100 points first, but a comeback is granted if possible. The game is online multiplayer only and, therefore, requires a Game Center account.


Tertiary! by Matt Panzer (Free, 3.4 MB): This puzzle game notably similarity to Minesweeper as the idea is to reveal all of the primary and secondary but not tertiary triangles using logical deduction. I advise you to read the instructions in full, but here's a quick overview. You reveal triangles one at a time, alternating between picking primary and secondary. The areas to avoid tapping are the ones surrounded by the three primary colors. The game has colorful 2-D graphics, local high score board, and does contain an ad banner in the menu. Game Center integration and multiplayer are noted as upcoming features.

Micro Racing - arcade cars challenge by Geemzo (Free, 11.5 MB): Most endless driving games involve the idea of a never ending road, however, an obvious influence has existed all along, stock car racing. Think of this as the NASCAR position qualifying run, but with the goal being distance rather than time. To ensure that you can't truly drive forever, there's only control of turning left and single lap fuel refills. The game features top-down play, six upgradeable vehicles, player ranking system, and a Game Center leaderboard. Not normally my policy, but it also contains an occasional app offer pop-up.
