Serenade, Aqueous Lite

  • Lifeboat ($1) is a game where players must rescue passengers on a sinking ship. The game is played by tilting the device back and forth to rock the ship and guide passengers towards the lifeboats. If any passengers fall into the water players must tap on them to save them from drowning or becoming shark bait. As the game progresses players can unlock different upgrades including quicker controls, swimming lessons for the passengers, and sturdier ballasts.

  • Attagolo ($1) is a strategy game where players attempt to blast away all of their opponents balls. Players are able to place one ball on the board each turn and when a cell is filled with enough balls it explodes. Explosions occur when there are enough balls in the cell to let one ball land in each of the surrounding cells. If one of the exploded balls lands in an opponents cell all of the balls in that cell are switched over to the opposite players color.

  • 8 in 1: Arcade Park ($4) is a collection of 8 classic arcade games. Some of the included games are Asteroids, Gold Hunter, Galaxy Invaders, and Rushman. All of the games feature updated graphics, various game modes, multiple bosses, customizable controls, and more. Players can also track high scores and submit their best results for inclusion in the Hall of Fame.

  • Serenade (free) can be used to share details on the song a user is currently listening to. The application is able to automatically create an iTunes Store link for the song and allows users to either paste it in an email or post it to a Twitter account. Users are also able to add a message to accompany the link.

  • Aqueous Lite (free) is a water simulation that runs on the iPhone and iPod touch. Users can simulate running their fingers through the water by dragging them across the touch screen or create a flowing water wall by tilting the device. Aqueous also includes options for changing a background image, music, and ambient noises.
