Weekly international iPhone apps: Mega Jump, Glass Tower 2

The top free application by country* for the week, by number of downloads, recorded on May 24.

1. US
Mega Jump (games)

Players of the platform jumping game Mega Jump will be launching their characters into the stars in their quest to collect coins and reach new heights. Each time the character touches a coin, grabs a fire ball or jumps through a Super Nova Mega Boost, he soars higher into the sky. If he starts to fall too far down without landing on an object the game is over. The game teams cute animation with addictive game play.

Glass Tower 2 (games)

Glass Tower 2 is the second edition of the popular iPhone puzzle game Glass Tower. Players attempt to deconstruct towers of blue and red blocks - destroying all blue blocks by tapping on them and trying to save as many red blocks as possible by ensuring they don't fall off the side of the screen or come crashing to the ground and explode. Each broken red block equals one less life.
