Today's Best Apps: Garfield Kart And Lep's World 3

November 2, 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


Garfield Kart by Microids ($0.99, 197.8 MB): This Mario Kart-type mashup puts Garfield and friends behind the wheel of combat-capable karts to create a fun-filled, family-friendly arcade racer. Tackle the track as Jon, Odie, Nermal, everyone's favorite fat cat, or one of the other classic characters, plus collect coins and candy to unlock new goodies. Hidden behind the wrinkly wrapping, artillery is randomly selected and could be a person seeking pie, undermining swarm of UFOs, detonating diamond, kart launching sprouting spring, visual interrupting pesky pillow, and more that's cleverly dropped or launch to thwart your opponents. In regard to coins, they may be traded for upgraded karts with improved speed and handling. The game features cartoony 3-D graphics, charming soundtrack, three play modes, 16 circuits, eight characters, eight power-up items, three levels of difficulty, as well as dual-thumb and tilt controls.

Lep's World 3 by nerByte GmbH ($0.99, 47.3 MB): In this most recent sequel of the Super Mario Bros.-inspired retro-style platformer, the village is attacked and pillaged by trolls, forcing Lep to take on the biggest rescue yet. Much like before, it's a run, jump, and double jump journey across the treacherous terrain as you strive to collect every coin, including the three pots dropped throughout each section, and avoid or clobber the many enemies, far more of which are now winged. That means, players will be pushing those pinecones. If you have a friend who's a fan, invite them for a fun multiplayer match. The game features 8-bit 2-D graphics, Irish-themed chip tunes, 120 levels spanning seven worlds, four characters, 22 standard and five boss enemies, 18 power-up and improvement items, dual-thumb controls, two person multiplayer and score sharing via Facebook plus Game Center leaderboards and achievements. A trial version is available.
