Jump Out

Today's app of the day is Jump Out.


Jump Out is an excellent new android app from developer Tap TapBoom Games. Like all great mobile games, the concept is simple but the execution is flawless and Jump Out is no exception. Game play involves trying to help a variety of insects escape (or Jump Out did someone say?) from within the 4 walls of their box. Within the box are a variety of cogs, fans, traps, barricades and most importantly stars. The object is to free the insects and collect the stars in the process. This has to be achieved in a limited amount of jumps, as too many jumps will see your insect become concussed and unable to escape!

The controls are great - anyone familiar with Angry Birds will be right at home here, you simply click on an insect to launch it and a helpful 'arc' will show you the intended trajectory. Once you complete levels you are scored in the classic 1- 3 star rating system, with more levels and bonuses unlocking as the game proceeds. The difficulty levels here are perfect, with game play starting off easy, but with the difficulty and new concepts gradually being incorporated and increased.

With 140 levels, 30 achievements and 30 bonus levels, there is plenty of content within Jump Out and the price is perfect (FREE!). This is the quintessential mobile game in many aspects, featuring cute characters, fantastic physics based game play, crisp graphics and an excellent soundtrack.

All in all, an excellent android application well worth a play - I would not be surprised to see this make its way to the top of the casual gaming charts!








In the words of the developer:

They are captured within 4 walls! Their only hope is the cap they are holding onto, as if trying to catch a straw in a hurricane! Surrounded by cunning traps, they look ahead and see… the exit. These bugs have nothing to fear; they always look dangers in the face and keep on crying Jump Out!
- Simple, intuitive controls!
- Cool physics-based gameplay!
- Perfect graphics!
- Stunning soundtrack and authentic voice-over!
- Wide variety of characters with unique abilities and skills!
- 140 levels!
- 30 achievements to unlock 30 additional bonus levels!

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…
