November 1, 2013

Grab on tight and don’t let go as Ratty races to collect his cheese in Donut Games’ arcade game, Rat On A Jet Ski. We also have a music player for iPad featuring a built-in visualizer, and an app that allows you to tap away on your iDevice’s screen to create funky beats.

Every time you access a task, you’ll see the photo you have taken first and then all of your details. Tasks can be marked as complete, edited, and shared. Look also includes the ability to create lists, have the camera launch immediately, and automatically delete old completed tasks. All of Look’s additional features can be toggled on and off through your iDevice’s Settings app, and not through Look itself. Look — photo-based todo app is available for free for a limited time.

Tap once to cause Ratty to jump into the air, and tap twice and keep your finger on the screen to activate his propeller helmet and glide. A third tap will cause Ratty to do a somersault and earn you an extra point, but only perform this death-defying trick when everything’s clear. Try to grab as many stars and cheese slices as you can to earn a high score. The game includes four modes, 50 levels, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.
