Today's Best Apps: Plasma Pig And Beeb

May 19, 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. 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.


Beeb by Appmobix Ltd (Free, 3.3 MB): Spend some of that spare time challenging your mind by playing this uniquely strategic and unpredictable match-5 puzzler. Unlike similar titles, beebs may move more than a single space. To maneuver them, tap on one to select it, then tap an empty destination cell. With only a few beebs to start, the 8x8 grid board is very unobstructed, allowing easy alignment. As time progresses, additional beebs will randomly appear. Not only does the increasing crowd force unwanted moves, it can entirely block actions. Think of every move as if you're dragging the beeb to the desired location, which requires an open path, whether lengthy or direct. Obviously, this restriction is how play becomes so difficult. The game includes colorful 2-D graphics, simple sound effects and no background music, a Game Center leaderboard, and does contain an ad banner.

Plasma Pig by Paul Symons ($0.99, 19.0 MB): In this line drawing physics-based puzzler, your task is to help save Pigsley by guiding him towards wormholes on a journey home. Accomplishing the objective requires scientific planning and the use of plasma. Once you've located the target objects, draw a path using the pink plasma paste that Pigsley will roll down, passing through the three stars and ending with a leap into the wormhole. Be forewarned, unexpected problems and increasingly difficult scenarios are a certainty. The game features cartoony 2-D graphics, stimulating electronic background music, single finger control, 100 levels spanning five stages, and a star rating system. A trial version is available.
