angelFrogGames says their first iPhone/iPod touch game is now available on the App Store. Shape Search Zen — Wordsearch Without Words (US$1.99) shifts the classic gameplay of Wordsearches into something new, yet familiar, by asking the player to find sequences of colored shapes hidden within a random grid of similar shapes. At heart, it’s a game of matching, but the definition of “match” will not always be the same. Additionally, while the player is enjoying the game, the game is observing the player and at the end of each level will provide an estimation of the player’s Zen.
Creative Ninjas has introduced BORLS 1.0, A $0.99 quiz game for the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Billed as “possibly the most annoying and loudest quiz ever,” the game features an emcee, whose cartoon-voice comments on the action are accompanied by distracting noises while the player is trying to read and answer questions. Wrong answers produce greater noise, right answers less. For one or more players, this quiz game tests more than knowledge.
