iPad App Recommendation: Trucks and Skulls HD
Tired of Angry Birds already? Try Trucks and Skulls HD (T&S).
T&S is essentially a replica of Angry Birds in terms of gameplay. But you launch Trucks to destroy the much more evil-looking Skulls (instead of Evil Pigs) located in structures made of wood, steel, lava and explosives. The game is darker than Angry Birds, which suits my tastes just fine.
There are different monster trucks that you can launch. The trucks have different abilities - some drop bombs, some explode, some even burst into a hail of missiles when you tap on them in mid-flight.
There are three episodes in the game, with each episode having around 42 to 43 levels. You have to finish each level in order to progress to the next level and consequently, you have to finish all the levels in each episode before advancing to the next episode.
However, you can always retry a level until you gain a higher score. You can share your high scores and achievements via Apple's Game Center. After you have finished all the levels, there is a Level Maker where you can create your own custom levels. You can even share the levels you created with your friends.
T&S is a lot of fun and you will find it difficult to put down your iPad when you are playing it. You can get Trucks and Skulls HD for iPad at an introductory price of US$1.99 or the iPhone version at $0.99.Get it now before prices go up when this game becomes more popular!
