If you know a thing or two about computer gaming, you might have heard of Minecraft, a browser-based game where players have built working 8-bit CPUs, 1:1 sized replicas of Star Trek’s Enterprise ship, roller coasters, and cities, among other things, using (almost) nothing except for virtual cubes. Unfortunately, if you were expecting Kingly Games’ Eden – World Builder to be a mobile port of the most recent version of Minecraft, you may be disappointed. While Eden is more of a port of a very stripped-down version of Minecraft, you’ll find that for $0.99, the app is a worthy investment.
Mobigame, the developers behind the award-winning game known as Edge, has now brought us an infiltration-styled puzzle game called Perfect Cell ($4.99†).
It is the year 2029. After a meteorite had crashed into the middle of the Pacific Ocean, a team of scientists had discovered Cell Zero and transferred it to a militarized submarine base. After performing experiments on the cell, the scientists discovered that the cell was hostile towards other forms of life and it was able to evolve abnormally quickly. One month later, we must take control of Cell Zero and help it escape from this militarized submarine base.
After creating Edge, one of the most successful puzzle games in the App Store, how will Mobigame’s Perfect Cell turn out?

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 (iTunes link) is a name synonymous with titles such as Call of Duty and Medal of Honor. In the past, it has delivered to its audience realistic destruction, hectic gameplay, and addictive multi-player action. You play as Private Preston Marlowe, a member of a task force consisting of 4 hardened mercenaries. A server containing vital information on the Russian enemy is stolen, and it is up to you to find and retrieve it. This is Electronic Arts’ (EA) first real attempt at creating a First-Person Shooter (FPS), so in a market where this genre is still developing, how does it set itself apart from the rest?

Music lovers spend countless hours and dollars to replace the stock Apple earbuds that came with their devices. Some replace the buds because they prefer more bass, better noise isolation or a better fit for which an in-ear style may be better suited. For most, they do provide decent sound quality. Personally, I currently have four pairs of $30 Apple earbuds sitting in a drawer going unused. The reason? They just don’t stay in my ears. They barely hang on the edge of my ear canal and fall out repeatedly. I have tried a few products to solve the problem, such as Yurbuds and Acoustibuds, with less than successful results. In the interest of not letting such an expensive and fairly competent accessory left unutilized, I once again have tried another solution, the Innovelis BudFits.

Sena is known for making designer leather cases and accessories for a wide range of devices. One of these products is the keyboard folio for iPad, available for $149.99 on their website. When an accessory costs over a quarter of the price of the base model iPad, it is important that the product has the utmost quality, design, and durability. After using this folio with my iPad over the past week, I can now assess whether Sena has met these standards.
