You might think that Playdek’s Lords of Waterdeep is an unlikely candidate for the top of the November iPhone Qi games league table, but it earns its position through some impeccable fantasy boardgame action. Contrasting nicely with that down at #4, Rayman Fiesta Run is the consummate mainstream entertainer with its colourful platformer world. Just behind Ubi’s superstar is Papa Sangre 2, whose creator steps back into experimental territory with this audio-centric gaming experience. And, no, we don’t mean you have to operate your iPhone with your lobes. Now that WOULD be experimental. Hurrah! It’s the return of Mickey Mouse in a brilliant platform game – something we haven’t seen since the early ’90s. Castle of Illusion is a magical blast from the past.
Sitting proudly atop November’s iPhone Qi app chart is FoundMoney, a.k.a. the digital equivalent of discovering a fiver down the back of your sofa. With this app, 12Cube provides innovative money-saving tips on all of your favourite retail hotspots. You might think you’ve got more than enough filter apps, but Filterloop in second place ‘makes’ a strong case for inclusion. It enables you to mix and layer multiple filters, creating hundreds of new photo effects. Down at #7, meanwhile, Fantastical 2 supplies a second dose of calendar excellence – this time with an iOS 7-friendly design. Jimdo, by contrast, allows you to create and edit your own website from your iPhone. Now THAT is power.
