Free App of the Week: Angry Birds Star Wars II - Each week on the iTunes App Store, Apple drops a single release down to the tasty price of "free". This week, that freebie is Angry Birds Star Wars II, a game that needs absolutely no introduction. Fling birds to knock over pig structures, but instead of birds it's Star Wars characters, and instead of pigs it's pig troopers. And it's free!
Apple's Best of 2013 - The end of the year brings "best of" lists from around the interwebs. Some of these are simple search engine bait, but in Apple's case, they're an honest representation of some of the highest quality apps and games of the year. For 2013, Apple's choice for best iPhone and iPad game are Ridiculous Fishing and Badland respectively. The runner-up in the iPhone category is Simogo's DEVICE 6. Surprised? Nah, those are all amazing games.
Pop-up pops later - Tengami, a beautiful digital pop-up book adventure, is heading to iOS devices in January. It was originally slated for a 2013 release, but developer Nyamyam recently announced it wouldn't meet that target. The game itself looks gorgeous. The new trailer shows off a few snatches of gameplay, and we think you'll agree with that assessment!
