Farm Mess (game)

Farm Mess is a puzzle game where you use "rotation" to try to "sort" all of the animals in order, using the minimum number of "moves".  While there are some cute animations, the game mechanics is quite boring, and there's no "story".

There are better puzzlers out there.

iRewardChart (app)

iRewardChart is an app for parents to track your children's good behavior for reward later.

And really, that's all there is to it. You can define points for certain activities, more, less, with objectives, bonuses, and so on.

In other words, you create a formal credit / debit system to reward kids for "good behavior", no more "mommy forgot" and "you promised!"

Not a bad idea... if you have kids ad they are not behaving.

Pot Smash (the game)

Pot Smash is essentially whack-a-mole, with a twist. You need to "hit" like 3-4 pots of the same type as quickly as possible (and don't get it wrong!) the more you do correctly, the better score you get.

And really, that's it.

There are variations, like smash the pots that form a word, or adds up to 11, and so on. Basically, is quick perception, mental gymnastics, combined with a bit of finger dexterity.

Not bad, but not that good either.

X-Men (the game)

X-Men the game for Android is your old-style beat-em-up similar to TMNT, Double Dragon, and so on. In fact, it is a faithful adaptation of the original 1992 Konami arcade game, except updated to modern smartphones with support for OpenFeint!

Magneto and Sentinels are destroying the city, and Professor X sends one of the X-men to defeat all the baddies! Each X-men has jump, attack, and super-attack (limited use), and X-number of types.

If you jump and attack you do special attack, and if you do attack repeatedly you get a combo attack, but the enemy have special attacks too, so beware.

It's a pretty simple game, controls are a bit laggy, IMHO.  ($0.99)
