The app has been released by a studio in Calgary, Robots and Pencils. Paul Thorsteinson, Robots and Pencils chief technology officer and lead developer on the project says,
I think we all expected it was going to be a success, but that was success defined as getting into the top 25 and hanging out there for a while,We’ve had other successes, but this one takes the cake.

One of the classic physics problems in your hand! Bridge Constructor is a great game for your iOS!
Correctly speaking, this game could go in the Science category. But since it’s a game, I’ve placed it in the Gaming category.
Building a bridge can be a really daunting task especially when you don’t hold a degree in engineering (and even when you hold a degree!). Games like the Bridge Constructor aren’t something very new. I remember having played a C++ game on this quite a while back. But the game gets really addicting especially with the challenge that each scenario provides.
The simplicity of the game, and the physics make the game amazing and addictive. Add some good graphics to an all time physics classic and you get Bridge Constructor for the iOS.
The game features 30 different levels, featuring deep valleys, canals or rivers. You have a fixed budget in each stage in terms of money. And a fixed amount of resources, like steel cable, concrete, wood etcetera. Use them wisely, creatively, and of course scientifically to construct the ultimate bridge.
Excellent physics ● Great concept ● Good implementation ● Great graphics
A single segment of the bridge can’t be deleted when needed, only the undo button works for that.
In my opinion this is by far the best Bridge constructor game I have seen on the iOS so far. I really love constructing bridges on this, and improving on the previous designs in my free time. I haven’t completed the game as yet, but I would recommend it to anyone. The game is available on the PC as well.

The official game of the blockbuster animated series – Tom Hanks Electric City is at the Apple App store now. Priced at $0.99 here is a brief overview of the game.
The world as we know it has come to an end. From the ashes has risen a new society ruled by Wire Central, controlling the electrical power and information distribution.
Frank Deetleman, a city technician and a member of an underground rebellion is determined to fight for the freedom, working towards the ultimate uprising.
The gameplay is pretty gripping, considering the small mini games within each level. And the time sensitive alarm that goes off every now and then.
The stealth action of the game involves you as Frank, going about and collecting resources in various locales avoiding the line of sight of the guards patrolling nearby. You get two warnings if you get caught. The third warning by the patrol means, a taser attack!
On the technical side the game is not 3D in a real sense, it only looks 3D. It reminds you of the BMP implementation that was used in earlier times on games like Caesar III and Sim City 2000.
There are some challenges this game appears to be facing at the App Store though. One guy goes on to claim that fake reviews are being planted for how great the game is. Other reviewer is depressed because there is no Tom Hanks voice in the game. (for $0.99 one mustn’t expect Tom Hanks to be voicing a game!).
The game isn’t as good as Commandos Behind Enemy Lines on the PC. Though it is trying to take the stealth-action concept from that game. This was a very highly anticipated game amongst the Electric City fans. However the mixed reviews of the game, leave people asking for more!

The Sandbox is a unique game, or simulation of the real world in your iPad. This game is a hybrid of Alchemy for iPhone and Minecraft taken into a two-dimensional environment.
You are literally given the role of a”diety apprentice.” And from there on you start making your world using the four classical elements and simple laws of physics. Create your own universe through exploration of resources like electrons, lava, sand, glass, fishes and lots more.
There are two modes of playing the game. The story-mode, which takes things step by step, and the first few lessons are spent in learning about the game play and interface. The second mode is the free-play mode, where you can experiment and create your own creations. Each time you complete a goal or accomplish something, you get mana. Which you can use to unlock elements that you have discovered.
In this game, nature is yours to command, as are various other man-made objects, like light bulbs, heaters, oil lamps and diodes.
There is also an online gallery, which showcases some of the most interesting Sandbox creations!
This game has great mechanics, and has a great potential. And its free, which should make it popular amongst Sandbox type game fans. If you haven’t played a sandbox before, try this one out!

Cavorite is an interesting platform puzzle game for the iPad with a twist in it. The storyline of the game is based on the book, “The First Men in the Moon,” by HG Wells.
The story goes back to the year 1898. There is a scientist who has invented a substance called “cavorite” that makes things weightless. Using this substance the scientist devices a spacecraft and flies to the moon.
Thinking that the moon was unoccupied he steps out, only to be attacked by some extraterrestrials called “Selenites.” The Slenites stow away his space craft, and the scientist finds himself stuck on the moon. Your mission – Get the space craft and head back to earth.
The game begins in an underground cavern, where you have to reach the exit to the next level. You have “cavorite” at your disposal and use this to make things float, activate switches and collect parts for your spacecraft.
The time you spend at each level determines the star you get, gold, silver or bronze. There are also boss battles at the last level of each world. You can defeat the boss either by smashing him using the blocks or plunging him into the hot lava.
All in all, Cavorite is one of those puzzle platformers that will make you fall in love with the game. Nice retro graphics and challenging puzzles will keep you entertained. If you are a puzzle lover, you are surely going to like this one, so do check it out!
