Ow My Balls!

OMB, here goes all my credibility as a reviewer…I like Ow My Balls! Granted, there is not much of a game here at all, but every time he hits the ground and yells, you guessed it…“Ow my balls!”, I laugh. In fact, I’ve been known to scream it out, in the middle of the day, for no apparent reason. The fact that he farts to propel himself further in the level is just icing on the cake, as it were. They took it off the app store, for a while, so I emailed the guy to see if he would float me a copy and his response began with, “Thank you for your interest in My Balls.” Genius. If you want to relive being 12 years old, get this app. Don’t do it for me, do it for yourself. Just don’t tell anyone I recommended it…

Update: Believe it or not, the developer added OpenFeint social network support, so you can keep in touch with all your master farting buddies. You can also unlock videos of people getting kicked in the junk.

Yummy Yummy Cooking Jam

A time-management game like Burger Island, but much better, much cuter, and with much more depth. There are four different restaurant types; hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, and Tex-Mex ,each with their own ingredients and preparation methods. The gameplay consists of taking orders and then putting the right ingredients together, in the right order, and handing it to the proper patron. You have to cook the food first, oftentimes using gesture motions for chopping veggies and rolling a burrito, for instance, which adds a lot to the game. What really sets this game apart for me, though, is the charm. As you can see, it has an adorable and quirky Japanese art style. The Vikings giggle like little girls when you serve them a Coke, the little pig-tailed, vampire girls burp like truck drivers after their meal, and space aliens like mustard on their dogs. 48 levels of onion-eatin’ alien goodness.
