New 99 cent games for iOS Video Transcript
-Hey guys, welcome to tap that app. I'm Brian Tong and this is the show we cover the hottest apps in the mobile space and you're probably bored with some of the those same old iOS games because Angry Birds and Bejeweled gets played out, but I'm bringing you 3 new games that are 99 cents and a breath of fresh air to keep your thumbs cramping. Now, first app is SPY mouse and guess what are, a mouse that's a spy. The goal is to collect the cheese without being spotted by those nasty cats and then get out of the room. Draw path with your finger where you wanna go and see if you have what it takes to be the big cheese, got it? Now, you also face [unk] and mouse traps in this fun puzzle and timing game that well worth its 99 cent price tag. Now, some games are just 1 hit wonders, but the team from Halfbrick that brought us Fruit Ninja has done it again with Jetpack Joy Ride. Touch the screen to fly up and down and collect as many coins as you can while avoiding zappers, pickup enhancements in the game and survive as long as you can. Then use the coins you collect to purchase jetpacks, vehicle upgrades, and more, and if you're suck at the game, just purchase coins directly in the app with your own money, but right now, this is my new favorite game hands down, and finally, let's get a game for the grown ups 2 words Zombie Gunship. You will hunt zombies from the sky by protecting a bunker and civilians and shooting the zombies with an infrared military style display from a gunship. See, I'm supposed to kill all those zombies, the shadow looking guys, and I don't know if I can do it. Hold me. You also ear points to purchase weapon upgrade or special extras like bomb drop, but this is another bad ass 99 cent app for. So out with the told and then with this new way of the game that work on your iPad, iPhone, and iPad Touch. Now, if you guys have any other apps you like to show off, send them to Tap That App at CNET.com. I'm Brian Tong, thanks for watching. I will see you guys next time. Come on, come on.
