Today's Best Apps: Laser Chambers, Prison Break Run And 8 Bubbles

July 7, 2013
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


Prison Break Run - Impossible Breakout & Escape by InvoCube (Free, 90.6 MB): If you just can't get enough of endless runners, then here's another fast-paced and action-packed adventure to challenge the reflexes. Taking the role as an unnamed crime boss who decides he's had enough of the orange jumpsuit and confinement, attempt an escape in a mad dash to the exit. Along the way, it will be necessary to navigate the maze-like corridors, strafe around pillars and unexpectedly opened doors, slide under broken gates, avoid unexpectedly opened doors, neutralize guards, and more. For the latter, you'll definitely want a weapon, err, tool. Collect enough coins (yeah, seems a little out of place, but maybe the coppers frequently drop change) and trade them for a billy club, gun, police uniform, steel toe shoes, or an electronic key card. The game features 3-D graphics with a third-person perspective, single finger swipe control, power-ups items and upgrades, as well as a Game Center leaderboard. Pop-up ads may be disabled by playing to earn 50,000 credits or purchasing them for $4.99.

8 Bubbles by Nigital (Free, 20.6 MB): As usual, this match-3 is a simple way to entertainingly pass the time for those of nearly any age. The endless play is separated into goal-based stages that involve matching a certain amount of every shaped balloon before the 60-second countdown expires to complete. Progress is shown at the top-right and extra time will be awarded upon every group shape match. The game features colorful 2.5-D and flat UI graphics, upbeat soundtrack, and Game Center leaderboard. Intermission-style pop-up ads are present, and can be disabled via a $1.99 in-app purchase.


Laser Chambers by James McIlveen ($0.99, 16.4 MB): Help Professor Mattalino retrieve his revolutionary potion before it can be used for evil in this high-powered puzzler. While finishing the other steps of his diabolical plan, Dr. Tuso is storing the priceless component within a very secure safe, one that will require the professor's laser to breach. Unfortunately, the laser isn't portable, therefore, you must redirect the beam throughout the many laboratory chambers instead. To do so, reposition crystals and deflection tubes to shoot the beam around walls and other obstacles. As you would expect with such a story, there is one more problem: booby traps. Avoid triggering pressure plates and other security systems. The game features cartoony graphics, 100 stages, star rating system based on completion time, and single finger control.
