Air Soccer Fever

Today's app of the day is Air Soccer Fever.

Air Soccer Fever is a great new casual soccer game for Android devices that provides real-time online multiplayer capabilities in one on one battles for the most goals. It has been a great success for the Windows platform, going as far as winning Microsoft competitions and being picked up by Sony as a showcase game for their latest table top hardware Sony Vaio Tap 20.
Luckily, it has recently been Android and released a beta version is now available on Google Play to try. After installing the app, it quickly became apparent to me why this has been so popular on the Windows mobile platform - in short, it is an excellent app!

Gameplay involves two players taking it in turn to swipe their ball into the opposing players goal. The amount of time available to take a shot is limited, so if you aren't paying attention the shot clock will run out and your opponent will get another shot. This may sound convoluted in practice, but the best way to think of it is as turn based pong. Trust me - it works brilliantly, and is a great demonstration of a simple concept, executed brilliantly. 

The real star though is the multiplayer capabilities, with the possibility of playing against friends in real time from all over the world. This is great fun, and with user profiles and leader boards on the way, it is only going to get better. The sound and graphics are great and crisp, topping off a well rounded package. Download it now. 

In the words of the developer:

Wish - shopping made fun - and easy - and cheap!

These days sites like Amazon or eBay make buying and selling online quick and easy. Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows. Luckily, apps now exist to replicate that experience.

The best of the lot is Wish - which has the tagline 'shopping made fun' which could not be more true! When opening the app there are lots of categories to choose from, allowing you to pick the type of products you want to browse and going from there. Buying and checking out is only ever a few clicks away and if you are not careful you will very quickly load up on more products than you need!

I've launched sites that help out with buying cheap gadgets in the past, and it was heavily inspired by apps such as Wish which really allow someone to sit back and take pleasure in the shopping experience again! Download Wish now!

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
