Hook Champ [iPhone/iPod Touch]
Rocketcat Games
http://www.rocketcat-games.com/hook/

Hook Champ is a game about using your grappling hook to escape the guardians of cursed, ancient ruins. It's an action/adventure platformer, but also a racing game. Loot you get from the ruins can be used to develop your character and buy custom hats, so it's also a hat fashion simulator.

Designed from the ground up for replay value, every level in Hook Champ has its own scoreboard. You can perfect your times and then compete against others. In an iPhone first, you can send challenges to friends, who will then be able to race against a ghostly copy of your character.

To help provide new experiences each replay, upgrades in an in-game shop allow you to revisit old levels to find new secrets and alternate paths. Perfecting your grappling hookery lets you unlock new hats, new characters, and new levels. More unlocks and features are added through continual updates to the game.

With all the above, a retro inspired style, and the most hat customization on the market, Hook Cham...

Appy Entertainment, Inc.

He has a scant four weeks to train you, his apprentice, in every aspect of the dark art of making Zombie Pizzas. Beneath Zomboni's stern eye you will race against the clock to combine disgusting ingredients like eyeballs, hearts, bones, guts, and (of course) brains into grotesque Zombie Pizzas like The Roadkill, The Split Dog, The Gut Buster, and the Stink Eye. Zombie Pizza is a fast-paced, light-hearted horror puzzle game where lighting-quick reactions are all that stand between you and a grisly fate at the hands of the ravenous undead. Whip up high-value recipes to rack up dollars, earn gold medals, and advance through the Zombie Pizza ranks from Trainee to Owner. Sort ingredients from the fast-moving conveyor-belt and onto your pizzas, and then flick completed pizzas through the slot to feed the zombies pounding on your door. But watch the Zombie Rage meter -- fill your orders fast enough and you live to see the dawn. Fall behind and the hungry undead smash through the door and put YOU on the menu!
