Coolson’s Artisinal Chocolate Alphabet Is an Amazing Word Game for Your iPad

I love great looking word games as can be seen from the many featured in the games category. Paper by 53 has been on my iPad homescreen since the day it released. It is by far one of the best apps out there. I discovered Coolson’s Artisinal Chocolate Alphabet (I still can’t get over the name) from an RT by Matt Gemmell. After checking out the website, I was pretty amazed that most of the game design and artwork was...

Circles Is an Elegant and Minimal Memory Game

Remember when Tweetie changed the way apps were designed? Loren is known to do that kind of stuff. Letterpress might do the same when it comes to multiplayer games on iOS. Letterpress was the first game that brought Game Center multiplayer to the mainstream. Snowman, the team that brought Checkmark to us, is back with a memory game that is the first amazing looking multiplayer game in a Letterpress world. Circles looks beyond great. It has sounds for everything, which...

Puk is a Minimal and Frustratingly Difficult Game

Puk by Laser Dog Games isn’t your everyday casual mobile game. Calling it a fast paced game is a massive understatement. It looks amazing and utilizes only 2 colours for the most part. Puk isn’t something you play for hours at a stretch. It will be there for that quick fix of gaming that will either leave you rewarded or extremely frustrated. The sounds in the game did remind me of Hundreds and what is it with game developers and...

Bold Poker – Going Where No Poker Game Has Gone Before

It is always great to see developers do innovative things with iOS devices for games. Pacific Helm makes you replace your box of checkers with an iPad and now Kater Calling wants you to replace your deck of cards with an iOS app. Bold Poker isn’t your basic poker app on the App Store. It is a brilliant new take on Texas hold ’em involving multiple iOS devices over wifi. Don’t expect online multiplayer and such here. Bold poker just...

Sound Shapes is a Beautifully Unique Musical Platformer

We’ve started featuring a lot more games than we used to here on Beautiful Pixels. This is partly because the quality of indie games is higher than ever before. Most indie games usually have great and unique visuals. Until a few months ago, I never considered the PlayStation 3 or PSVita important for anything but classics and your typical Call Of Duty-esque shooter with a few more boring games. Microsoft’s Xbox 360 and Xbox Live Arcade had some of the...

Hundreds of Minutes Will Be Spent Each Day Playing This Addictive Game

Semi Secret Software who brought us Canabalt have released a new game for iOS called Hundreds. It is an insanely addictive puzzle game with stunning visuals and amazing sounds. I have been awaiting its release ever since I saw Polygon do a hands on back in October. Hundreds has a very minimalist visual style and red theme throughout. It looks absolutely gorgeous on the iPad with Retina display. Another thing you will notice with great indie developers is the effort...
