An inventive and fun idea here from Head First Communications, in the shape of its very first app,called Super Twario, which enables users to interact with their Twitter accounts as if they were a retro platform game, by taking on the role of Twario, the hippest bunny in town, and earning points and achievements for carrying out various Twitter-related activities. Twario is controlled simply by tilting your iPhone, iPod touch or iPad, or by tapping the screen to have Twario jump and swiping it to get him to run faster.

Super Twario also features all the basics required from a Twitter client, such as the ability to create tweets, reply to other tweets, and retweet messages, all via Twario. For example, you can...

LambdaMu Games has today launched an update for its vector Tower Defence game 4Towers, called Episode 2 “Evolution”, for iPhone and iPod touch. To celebrate the launch of the update, the game will be free to download from the App Store until October 22nd.

4Towers is a TD game that centers on creating different effects through the use of four basic towers, hence the name. Players can customize their plan of attack by combining the basic towers to unlock different effects, while putting funds earned to good use by purchasing upgrades as each successive enemy wave gets increasingly difficult.

The Episode 2 “Evolution” update adds a new class of tower, the Ability Tower, which, when built, must be activated...

Apple had their Back To The Mac event today in San Francisco announcing some new Macbooks and a few features. New Macbook Air models we're announced and released today, 11.6 and 13.3 inches. These Airs are much lighter and come with a few cool features. I still don't see the point of owning a Macbook Air when a Macbook Pro is just around the corner, price-wise I mean. Facetime for Macs was released today, still in Beta, but you can try it out on your Mac and start Facetime chats with iOS devices. App Store for Macs will be released within 90 days of today so you can start using your iOS apps on your Mac as well. Everything else, covered in the video.

Another great heads-up from Pocket Gamer today, who have spotted that Konami has slashed the price of Silent Hill: The Escape in the App Store, to $0.99. As anyone who has ever played a Silent Hill game will attest, Silent Hill really is one of the most genuinely frightening and unsettling gaming series of all time (Pyramid Head still gives me nightmares after Silent Hill 2!), so you know this app will fully live up to the scary billing!

Silent Hill: Escape, developed specifically for the iPhone, is a first-person, 3D-shooter survival horror game in which players must navigate their way through various grim locations, ranging from an abandoned hospital (with the famous Silent Hill scary nurses!) to a deserted subway. The player’s flashlight plays a big part in...

Pocket Gamer reports the surprise news today that Angry Birds has received a Halloween makeover. Angry Birds Halloween has just arrived at the App Store in New Zealand, and will therefore be hitting the UK store at midnight tonight, and then presumably landing in the US store after that, as it has an official worldwide release date of October 21. The special Halloween edition is entirely separate from the regular version (so not an update), and is compatible with iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. It boasts 45 Halloween-themed levels, and all the usual addictive pig-smashing gameplay, only with added pumpkins and scary things.

As you can see from the screenshot, it looks pretty awesome, with lots of jack o’...

Sudoku games remain as popular as ever, with developers always trying to come up with fresh variations on the tried and tested theme. Belgian developer Creaceed seems to have achieved this with its new iOS game called Kuboku, which is actually a 3D version of Sudoku, using an 8x8x8 cube. The game features a staggering 1,000 levels, which gradually get more and more difficult as you progress, and you also have the option to select your preferred difficulty level from Easy, Normal and Hard.

The game is played by selecting a number from the green bamboo stalk on the right of the screen, with each number from 1 to 8 only being able to appear once in each coloured line and 2-position coloured cube. Use your fingers...

Over at Solidline you can find this amazing product, the iPad Case with Integrated Bluetooth Keyboard. This case is a bit of a high end case which will run you about $119. The entire thing is made out of leather apart from the Silicone Keyboard and of course magnets and stitching. The keyboard syncs to your iPad via Bluetooth, as mentioned before, and it has more functionality, like a home button key, than you would expect. Full review on this coming in the next few days.

Get It Here:

G.O.C. HD will bubble the crap out of your Springboard, by that I mean your icons will be skinned into some bubbles, HD bubbles. This is another one of those themes that you have have to give credit to for skinning all of your icons. These themes seem complete and nothing is missing to make your device look ugly. It allows you choose your own wallpaper which is always a plus. Another great thing about this theme is the dock. It minimizes your default dock icons and puts them on a creative grid so they differ a little from the icons above. G.O.C. HD can be found in CYDIA for $2.99.

CLASSified HD is theme that has been around for a bit but it is always nice to have a post on EVERYTHING. This theme deserves a video and a post because, well, its pretty darn cool. The theme will skin all of your app icons as well as your device UI. It has a bit of a metallic / chrome board on icons giving it that sleek Retina look. You get to choose your own wallpaper so I suggest downloading one of the many free Retina wallpaper apps there are out on the app store.

Great theme for $2.99 in Cydia, just search "Classified HD" and you will find it. there are plenty of add-ons and upgrades to this theme available as well.

Since the runaway success of Plants vs. Zombies, flowers have started to toughen up their image. They used to be relegated to appearing in genteel gardening apps, or merely looking looking decorative in the background, but now they’re hitting back, and some of them are even starting to get a bit aggressive, such as brand new gaming villain, Big Bad Flower (the clue is in the name!), brought to the app store by Big Bad Brush.

Big Bad Flower is a bad seed who’s trying to bubble his way to world domination. Bubble your way up from backyard to space and battle such critters as squirrels, rabbits, aliens, giant robots and many more.

The gameplay involves unleashing bubbles of doom to trap enemies by drawing...
