September 12, 2014

We also have a customizable music player with a built-in visualizer, and an educational app that will help you become a better chess player.

Bomberman Chains ($1.99 → Free, 24.9 MB): You’ll have a blast playing this match-three game starring the one and only Bomberman. If you like matching games and classic gaming characters, Bomberman Chains is sure to delight.

This is classic match-three gaming at its best. Plus, there’s Bomberman helping you out along the way by supplying bombs. What’s not to like? You’re able to play frantic time-based games, or you can take on the challenging mission objectives. Either way, the basic idea is to create matches of three or more enemies to remove them from the board. If you’re able to match more than three, Bomberman will drop a bomb into the column. You’re able to activate the bomb at any time during the game with a tap to clear out your enemies.

Songs can be favorited for quick access later on, searched for, and added to playlists. Then hit play and watch them come to life through the 10 built-in visualizers.

It includes 150 hand-selected classic chess games to learn from, allowing you to master moves and improve your game.
