Every month we quiz the Matmi team on their favourite apps, games, plugins and websites and put them together in one nice little list for you guys. Find out what our Designers and Developers are playing on when they’re not busy making magic happen, and let us know what you’re loving this month by Tweeting us @Matmi!
The aim of this game is simple, DON’T TOUCH THE SPIKES. We’re all absolutely hooked on this simple yet addictive game. In fact it’s probably been played the most consistently out of all the apps on our list this month. One thing that is particularly nice about Spikes, is that next to your high score it also tells you how many times you have played the game. Our Lead Designer has clocked over 1,337 plays. I kid you not!
If, like me you lack all the necessary components to become a pro skater, i.e. balance skills and cool trainers, it’s OKAY, the dream is still within reach. Epic Skater lets you kickflip, grind, manual, and combo your way down the streets of LA, unlocking new tricks the whole way.
We love a game with good retro graphics, and Tower Boxing certainly fits in to that category! It is highly addictive and infuriating in the most Flappy Bird way possible. You basically have to punch the hell out of a tower by tapping your screen FAST (you have a time limit) but make sure you dodge any obstacles on the way or you have to start again.
Instagram’s little creation lets you shoot time lapse videos from your phone or tablet and it actually looks good! The in-house stabilisation gives you an end result of polished time lapse videos that were “previously impossible without bulky tripods and expensive equipment”. Perfect for capturing a sunrise, or for just running around the office with like we’ve been doing!
To start with this game seems easy, maybe even too easy. You’re just tapping tiles to fill in the grey bits with a pulse of colour. BUT, stick with it and the beautifully designed levels get harder as you progress, with much more challenging grids to fill.
