iPhone Review Round-Up: Piyo Blocks 2, Infect Them All, Cooking Academy

Wed, Jul 28, 2010

iPhone, Mobile

With so many games being released on the iTunes app store, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with which ones you should or shouldn’t be playing on your iPhone. Thankfully, we have the review round-up to show you the best games available on the app store, complete with summaries and reviews from all around the web.

Piyo Blocks 2

Taking where the original Piyo Blocks left off, Piyo Blocks 2 expands on the original with new modes, new blocks, and a lot more fun packed in a small package. In Piyo mode, you have to match a certain number of each color, Hyaku mode has you completing levels once you’ve matched 99 of one certain color and Time Attack has you racking up the highest score possible within four minutes. Piyo and Hyaku modes also both have timers, but are much more lenient than Time Attack mode.

On top of some other excellent features, Piyo Blocks 2 contains new bluetooth and Wifi gameplay modes that have you eliminating blocks in order to keep your timer running. Slidetoplay reviewed the title and said they could “find themselves playing Piyo Blocks 2 for a long time to come” and that it offers everything anyone could want from a match 3 game but also comes with some great versus multiplayer. Rating: 4 out 4. Price: $1.99.

Infect Them All

Not enough brains in your diet? Infect Them All may be your answer as the objective is simple: Eat brains and infect humans to increase your score and finish levels. TheAppEra reviewed it and said that the very simple gameplay “will keep you entertained for short minute-long bursts or hour long sprees.” Sporting stylish graphics and charming sounds, it’s hard to ask for more. “Infect Them All is aptly named – that’s the object, and that’s the addictive aspect. This game rides the fence between casual and more serious, but it rides it better than any Independent ever has.” Price: $1.99.

Cooking Academy

We’ve already ran over Cooking Academy’s spices and herbs in our Frisky Hands-On, but GameZebo recently reviewed the game so we thought we’d take a second look. Simply put, Cooking Academy pits you as a chef-in-training at a swanky restaurant making dishes from several different categories.

In their review, GameZebo said the game “doesn’t pretend to be anything more than a miniaturized version of its PC brother, and it doesn’t have to be. It’s a fun, easy to pick up title with lots of appeal and longevity.” Rating: 4 out of 5. Price: $2.99.
