Sometime last week, I received a few products from the geeky, and so similar to me, guys over at ThinkGeek. Since the four things I got aren’t really worthy of a full review
Our two favorite apps from The Iconfactory have just gone on sale! Ramp Champ [App Store], the wonderful carnival-style skee-ball game, is completely free for a limited time, down from its usual price of $1.99. It's incredibly pretty and tons of fun to play; we gave it a 5 out of 5. It's recently been updated with several new social networking features and bug fixes, so it's the perfect time to pick up a copy.
Frenzic [App Store] is also on sale for $0.99, down from its standard price of $2.99. We love Frenzic just as much as Ramp Champ, as you can tell from our review. We're not sure how "limited" either one of these deals are, so we recommend picking them up as soon as you can! Both are solid games.
Ever since friend of the site David Barnard (App Cubby) posted this screenshot from Ramp Champ [App Store, $1.99] I haven't been able to put it down. For those who don't know, Ramp Champ is a new twist on the classic carnival skee-ball game. Play consists of flicking one of nine balls up a ramp in order to hit the targets. Sounds easy, but it's not!
So being a fan of @chockenberry, the person who the purple character is meant to resemble, I grabbed the recently released Halloween ramp pack ($0.99 in-app) to see if I could find him. All I can say is that I'm totally hooked. I haven't been able to find Chockenberry yet, but I do know that you need to knock down the three tombstones that reveal skeleton hands, hit the hands, then kill off the caskets.
Iconfactory (makers of Twitterrific) and DS Media Labs (makers of Light Riders) have teamed up to create Ramp Champ, a retro twist on the classic boardwalk game of skee ball. The am is simple: to "throw" the ball and knock down targets as they move around. Ramp Champ puts it in your pocket in several different flavors, with a dazzling and eye-catching artistic flair throughout.
