It's once again time to take a look at the world of mobile applications, with a decent variety of apps this week!
In this iteration, we have a parental control app for BlackBerry, a Dreamcast classic and a game from comic book legend Stan Lee.
A BlackBerry application makes the rounds this week, and it's a pretty useful one at that, letting parents keep an eye on their children.
Available as a free trial from the BlackBerry App World, MobiFlock lets parents manage contact lists, monitor and log communication as well as initiate security warnings.
A remake of the classic Dreamcast game (can you believe that we're seeing DC ports to smartphones these days?), Expendables is a throwback to other titles like Smash TV and Shock Troopers.
A top-down 3D shooter, Expendables: Rearmed sees you having to fight your way to the end of each stage, with power-ups to pick up along the way.
Expendables: Rearmed is available exclusively for Android devices, costing R27.
The brainchild of a Google engineer, Android-only title Ingress has attracted loads of attention thanks to its augmented-reality premise.
The game sees you using phone in the real-world, discovering sources of energy throughout the environment. It also emphasises people working together, making for some potentially fun outdoor trips.
Ingress is currently in closed beta, so request an invite from the official website.
Yes, everyone knows about the world's most popular video-sharing website, but a new update has brought a few killer features.
Unarguably the biggest new feature is the remote functionality, which allows smartphone and tablet users to pair their device up to their PS3 or Xbox 360. This arrangement allows users to easily send videos to the large screen.
YouTube is available on most major platforms, but the official remote functionality is limited to Android for now.
One of the more visually arresting games available right now, Paper Monsters is a pretty polished platformer.
Featuring 28 levels and simple controls, Paper Monsters evokes memories of the old-school Super Mario games. It also differs by offering a high-score mode, similar to endless running titles.
An endless-running title penned by comic book legend Stan Lee himself, Verticus has your character skydiving to reach the core of the Earth.
It's a pretty simple title, but the addition of upgrades, multiple suits and social integration makes it stand out even more.
Verticus is available excusively on iOS for $1.99.
Yeah, yeah, we're just as tired of zombie games as you are, but Brainsss really does do things differently.
This time, you play as the undead horde, being tasked with converting as many humans to zombies as you can.
