Best new apps and games – Oct 30, 2016

Welcome to our latest apps and games roundup! It’s Halloween season, so we’ve picked a couple of spooky apps to get you in the mood – alongside a retro pinball game, insult simulator and more. Read on for details!


Price: FREE ($1.99/£1.49 for Pro) • Version: 1.0.1 • Size: 118 MB

Download Folioscope on the App Store
From the makers of the excellent ball-bouncing Smash Hit and car driving time-travel fest Does Not Commute comes a new take on an old arcade classic. PinOut! is pinball reinvented, an endless flipper of sorts in which you race against time to climb your way through a series of neon pinball tables. With awesome retro graphics and matching audio, this is one addictive ball game.


Toonie Alarm

Price: FREE • Version: 1.0 • Size: 72.4 MB

Download Folioscope on the App Store
This new alarm clock app rewards you for getting up on time with collectible stickers and animations. It’s a cute, colorful alternative to the standard iOS alarms and its system of achievements might just incentivize you to avoid that snooze button!


The Forgotten Room

Price: $1.99/£1.49 • Version: 1.0.1 • Size: 439 MB

Download Folioscope on the App Store
It’s the spookiest time of year, so why not get stuck into a nice scary mystery puzzler? Explore a creepy house as a paranormal investigator, using the in-game camera to keep track of clues as you try to solve the case of the missing Evelyn Bright.


TaoMix Halloween

Price: $1.99/£1.49 • Version: 1.0 • Size: 85.5 MB

Download Folioscope on the App Store
If you’re hosting a Halloween party this year, look no further than TaoMix to supply customizable soundscapes to create a spooky atmosphere. Choose from a range of scary noises, and throw your own voice into the mix (complete with filters) for a personal touch. See our review of TaoMix 2 for an idea of how it works!


Oh… Sir! The Insult Simulator

Price: $1.99/£1.49 • Version: 1.0 • Size: 370 MB

Download Folioscope on the App Store
Oh…Sir! is an often hilarious duel of wits, in which opponents craft insults to hurl at one another. With online and local multiplayer, plus a “loner” mode in which you can insult the computer, this is a refreshingly bizarre combination of sentence-building, fighting games, and Monty Python humor.

Download Folioscope on the App Store
Toca Boca’s superb range of educations apps for kids expands to cover a new setting. We’ll let them explain: “Work and play the farmer’s way! Milk your cow, gather eggs from your hens and raise your crops. Have a picnic, play the fiddle and hit the hay!”
