iPhone owners aren’t used to belated conversions. But when they’re of the quality of Skulls of the Shogun - which debuted on Windows Phone almost a year ago - we doubt they’ll mind. 17-Bit’s witty strategy game has sliced its way to the top of December’s iPhone Qi game chart. 17-Bit had to beat off strong competition from GTA: San Andreas, which is one of the biggest games in the massively popular open-world crime sim series. As it is, Rockstar’s parody of West Coast America sits comfortably at #3. While we’re on the subject of gritty adult-only games, Telltale’s The Wolf Among Us prowls menacingly in fifth place. No doubt about it: the team behind Walking Dead: The Game has crafted a fine fantasy-themed mystery noir here. Finally, Om Nom returns in Cut The Rope 2. In this long-awaited full sequel to the ZeptoLab classic, there are all-new mechanics and more physic-based conundrums.
John Lennon: The Bermuda Tapes sits atop December’s iPhone Qi app chart, a spot to which the late Beatle would have been very much accustomed. The producer of this accomplished app has gathered rare audio snippets from Lennon’s trip to Bermuda in 1980. Trailing that at #2 is Jamaroos Musical ABCs, an incredibly polished alphabet-based kiddie app from an award-winning animator. Professional voice narration and proven educational value round out this particular package. Talking of 'award-winning', the acclaimed Modernist Kitchen at Home cookbook now has an equally sharp-looking companion app. The designer of this interactive e-book utilises video and high-res photography to bring its recipes to life. Almighty PHOTO, meanwhile, is a photography app for lazy people. Want your snaps automatically sorted into appropriate folders? Done. Want your images aligned properly? Done. Want a massage? Negative.
