On the first day of every month, we bring you the best iOS games and apps released in the past 30 days so that you needn’t be all over the app review sites to play the “now popular” games. So here are our picks for March, 2014.
Smash Hit – Best iOS game of the Month
Coming from the makers of Granny Smith and Sprinkle, Smash Hit is our choice for the throne. This game invites you to a perpetual linear journey with a bunch of metal balls at hand. Throw’em and break glass blocks, make some shattering noises, avoid rhythmic panes and collect pyramids on the way. For a free game, Smash Hit is spectacular, unique, addictive, challenging and good on ears. The single $1.99 in-app purchase to enable checkpoint saves seems to be a steal and is highly recommended.
Runner up Games
Taking reflection and refraction to its prime, God of Light ($1.99) lets you bend and split lasers to fire up crystals in a dark yet neon world. Roll Back Home ($1.99) rolls you into a doodled notebook where hyper realistic physics-based puzzles form the base. Boom Beach (Free) from the makers of Clash of Clans and Hay Day sports 3D colourful digital beach attacks and is creating waves among strategy fans. Portraying a 2D cartoonish horror ‘point and click‘ game, Knock Knock ($4.99) is just too unique to be ignored. And lastly 999: The Novel for iPhone ($4.99) and iPad ($4.99), with a simple interface, mind cracking puzzles and one of the most intriguing story lines ever, finds a place in the podium.
Other games worth mentioning
Microsoft Office Suite – Best iOS apps of the Month
Microsoft Office Apps for iPad are undoubtedly the winners for the best iOS apps in March, 2014. Microsoft Powerpoint, Word, Excel and OneNote are now available for the iPad for free and also the corresponding apps for iPhone have dropped their tags to nil. These were quick to grab the first four spots on the Top Free iPad Apps sections on the AppStore, but it might be disappointing for normal users to learn that you can only view or present your documents in the free version. For editing and creating new documents, an ongoing yearly subscription to Office 365 is necessary. And for those power users who already have this subscription, this suite is the final reason to ditch their laptops.
TodoMovies 3 (Free) helps you keep track of the awesome movies you’ve missed and to discover new ones for your next couch session. NFB StopMo Studio ($0.99) lets you take stunning stop-motion videos just with your iPad and a tinge of imagination. Twitter and Blogger Co-Founder’s new and stunning way to share ideas and stories, Medium – Everyone’s Stories (Free), can now be enjoyed via the free official app.
