You can tap and switch looks on the fly so you can get a feel for what would look best on you.

Once you’ve snapped a selfie, or selected a photo from the camera roll, you can then begin switching out looks. Even if you selected one when taking a selfie you can switch it out in the customize section. You can choose from the predefined looks and/or costumes which have everything done for a specific look; so you will see eyebrows, eyelashes, lipstick, blush, and more automatically applied to match your face. If you would like to take a more traditional approach to applying the makeup you can always go into the Face, Eye, Mouth, and Hair sections and apply each one of them individually to get the perfect look!

There will also be opportunities for you to tap on poachers and throw a boomerang at them to free the animal that they are trying to capture.

You can selects from 5 different locations to run through and free the animals from poachers. You can select from a Forrest, Fire, Volcano, and Coral Reef.

CubX

cubx-app-banner-sot

In CubX you must skillfully catch falling blocks, which are called tetrominos, in order to create lines, which then disappear. If you don’t do this quickly or often enough, the game will end and you’ll have to start over!

Upon first launching CubX you’ll be presented with the tutorial on how to play. If you are familiar with the classic game Tetris it will be a little easier for you to get the hang of CubX’s unique gameplay but if for some reason you’ve never played Tetris, you’ll be able to pick up the game in no time.

The basics of CubX’s game play will have you moving a paddle in all directions – up, down, left, and right – catching falling tile pieces. What’s unique to CubX is that the pieces will fall from the top and rise from the bottom, making both sides of the paddle playable. While a puzzle piece is falling you can tap on the screen to rotate it and tapping with two fingers will make the piece fall into place on the paddle. If you make pieces form a complete row, they will disappear and shift all of the other pieces down. The more that you can do this the higher your score will be and if you can chain together row clears you’ll get even higher points. And remember when I mentioned that pieces fall and rise, you can connect both sides of the paddle for even higher points! If you stack the pieces to high and can no longer have any fall or rise the game will end and you will be given your final score.

CubX features six different game modes that you can play. Classic mode gets you as close to normal Tetris as can be expected, although you’ll still have to move the paddle to catch falling pieces. CubX mode is where the pieces will fall from the top and rise from the bottom, as described above. Arcade mode gives you a board with cubes already in place, you’ll need to fit in the falling pieces to complete rows and remove the tiles. Time Trial mode will put you in a classic CubX mode but you will compete against the clock. Contract mode will give you a shape that you’ll have to create with the puzzle pieces, if you fail to do so game over! And finally, Missions mode will give you goals that you must reach using the falling puzzle pieces.

In each game mode you can use Boosters to help you achieve higher scores and some will even help remove or replace puzzle pieces on the board! CubX is sure to proved you with hours of challenging fun! Download for the iPhone, iPad, and Android devices below.

100 Balls 3D

100-balls-3d-app-banner

100 Balls for iOS is a simple yet surprisingly difficult game where you try to keep what’s yours.

In a unique take on the traditional balls and cups motif, 100 Balls 3D sets before you what seems like a not-too-lofty goal: keep 100 balls in your possession. Using realistic 3D graphics, your goal is to control the gates of the hopper where your 100 balls are kept. Under the hopper passes a conveyer belt full of cups that will pass back around the hopper and dump your balls back in.

There are to main challenges to what seems like the simple game of 100 Balls 3D: keep your balls from rolling away, and keep your cups from disappearing. You have control of both: touching the screen during the game will open up the hopper to drop balls into the cups below. Aim badly, and your balls won’t hit their target and roll away. Miss a cup entirely, and that cup will be removed from the conveyor belt entirely. Lose all of either one, and it’s game over.

You gain points as well as advance through the levels by recycling as many of your balls as possible, and the higher levels you reach, the bigger color-based multipliers you can earn.

none*

none

none* is a curious game –if it can even be called a game. Using a custom keyboard with no space key and only two buttons, you type answers to move through the game. Consisting of zero graphics other than the keyboard itself and the words above it on top of a black background, you are asked to answer mysterious quizzes in various ways. The answer might not always be straightforward.

The only controls given to you are the keyboard, and two buttons: one labeled “none*”, the other labeled “solve”. The solve button is the one you tap when you submit your answer, and the none* button takes you to what I assume is the only other page in the game. This page shows a bit of text stating what level you have reached, a share button that will pop up a share sheet to let you share this page, and a close button. Tapping close will bring you back into the game.

In none*, you cannot lose…but you might not be able to win, either.
