An all new addition to The Room puzzle series, an ‘80s style obstacle-dodging arcade game, and the official game of animated TV series LEGO Ninjago: Masters of Spinjitsu await you as this week’s top games. On the app front, we’ve got a handy email unsubscription tool, plus a full-fledged clipboard app.
Popular unsubscription service Unroll.Me has just launched an iOS app. The app lets you easily unsubscribe from email subscriptions by swiping left, after which no future mails from these senders will land in your inbox. If there’s a newsletter you want to keep, all you need to do is swipe right. Additionally, it offers a feature called Rollup, where newsletters on which you swipe up will be condensed into a daily digest and delivered to you at your time of choosing. The app lets you switch between multiple email accounts easily, and currently supports Gmail, Google Apps, Yahoo! Mail, AOL, iCloud and Outlook.com accounts.
Live Pictures Cam (Rs 120)
Apple can’t stop talking about its Live Photos feature, but unfortunately, unless you own an iPhone 6s or 6s Plus, you won’t be able to use it. That’s where Live Pictures Cam comes in. The app lets you capture live images from the iPhone 4s and above, provided you’re running iOS 9. All you need to do is tap the shutter button, and the camera will capture a living moment spanning 3, 4, 5 or 8 seconds. You can also choose between 15 fps or 25 fps frame rate options, add flash, and decide if you want a photo to be captured at the beginning, middle, or end of a clip.
Copied is a clipboard manager that lets you save images, links and text from any app. You can easily access saved clippings from the Notification Center via the Today widget, or by using the Copied keyboard. The app lets you copy multiple clippings to your clipboard, quickly search for saved clippings, make changes or merge multiple clippings together, and swipe right to quickly copy a clipping back to your clipboard. The premium version of the app supports iCloud sync across iOS and OS X devices, and lets you organise your clippings into lists.
The Room Three (Rs 300)
Popular puzzle series The Room is back with its third instalment. In the new game, you’ll find yourself trapped on a remote island, using your grey cells to navigate a series of puzzles devised by a mysterious figure known only as ‘The Craftsman’. The game features vast environments to explore, intricate objects you can expand and rotate to examine, an eye-piece ability that lets you navigate the world in miniature, and an enhanced hints system. The app features iCloud and Game Center support, so you can play on multiple devices and unlock achievements.
LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin (Rs 300)
Ronin, along with his army of evil Samurai, have stolen the Ninjas’ memories using a secret weapon called the Obsidian Glaive. In LEGO Ninjago: Shadow of Ronin, it’s your job to help the Ninjas reclaim their lost memories and powers before Ronin unleashes greater evil on Ninjago. In the game, you’ll explore iconic locations from the TV series, uncover the secrets behind the Obsidian Weapons, fight against villains like Serpentine and Ninroids, and control cool vehicles like bikes, jets and even dragons.
Peanuts: Snoopy’s Town Tale (Free)
In Peanuts: Snoopy’s Town Tale, you’ll join Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang as they build and explore their beloved town. You’ll get to construct iconic locations from the comic strip like Charlie Brown’s house, the baseball field and the skating rink, play hundreds of quests, earn items and unlock new levels, and interact with your favourite characters. You’ll also be able to unlock popular comic strips as you play.
Neon Drive (Free)
In this ‘80s style retro arcade game, you’ll drive through a cyber-grid neon environment, putting your insane dodging skills to the test. The game features three levels, each with a custom-made retro synth soundtrack that’s in sync with your dodges and enemies. There are hundreds of obstacles to dodge, exploding enemy spaceships to avoid, plus an infinite challenge mode.
