Hyper Cell

Today's app of the day is Hyper Cell.

There are lots of great platform games available for Android device, but many end up being the same tired clone of Temple Run that users have seen time and time again. Hyper Cell breaks this mold by providing a fresh new take on the run and jump genre - the result being highly styled, highly challenging game that is also just plain fun to play.

The set up is simple. You wake to find yourself in a futuristic maze of flashing lights, moving barriers, missiles and laser beams from which you must escape. The controls are simple (run and jump) but the difficulty comes from the great level design, requiring players to constantly be thinking quickly and making decisions as to timing, distance, height, etc. If a jump is timed poorly or you run a microsecond too late, it is not unusual to get smashed by a beam or fried by  a laser - causing the level to start again.

Each level has 3 starts to collect, and a half way check point so death doesn't always cause a full restart. This is a welcome relief, as the game can be really quite tough - making finishing some levels with all three stars even more rewarding. To take things to the 'next' level this game is hyper stylized. hardcore-techno music pumps from your speakers (use headphones, the soundtrack is truly impressive), lights flash and change colours and everything and things are constantly moving! The whole things feels like enough to keep even the most serious sufferer of ADHD occupied!

Best of all, the game is free to play. There are a few in app purchases that can be made (getting to set the colour scheme to one of your own choosing is pretty cool), but the game is fully playable from beginning to end without laying down a cent. All in all, this is a fantastic new android app. It has already started getting some great reviews, so be sure to check it out and tell your friends!

In the words of the developer:

Get ready for the ride of your life. Hyper Cell is a minimalist survival platformer. You wake up in a cell, you don’t remember who you are and how you got there. Survive this psychedelic maze that beats to the rhythm of the music.
The hardcore music tracks in this addictive 3d platformer will keep you hooked. You have not seen thrilling action like this before! BEWARE, this is not Temple Run, This game is only for the brave like Super Hexagon.
Multiple types of Laser beams, traps, canons, seeking missiles are going to be difficult and challenging to evade but checkpoints will help you along the way.
Hyper Cell contains in-app-purchases but they are not required to play/progress through the game. Please don't forget to rate it a 5-star.

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…
