Weekly international iPhone apps: Mega Jump, Glass Tower 2
Monday 24 May 2010
The top free application by country* for the week, by number of downloads, recorded on May 24.
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.
Roland-Garros 2010 (Sports)
Roland-Garros 2010 is the official application of the French tennis tournament of the same name. The app provides real-time score updates, information about the events, photos from the tournament, match fixtures, interviews and backstage videos. Consumers can also watch live TV coverage and video highlights of the matches but have to pay around €0.50 per 20 minutes of streaming through the app.

Jet Ball (games)
Jet Ball is a next-generation brick breaking game. Jet Ball strays from the fixed, square-block graphics of most games in the genre, and infuses the game with its own graphic style. Jet Ball has also been enhanced for the iPhone's capabilities, employing finger-friendly, multitouch controls. Players have access to 65 levels with options for easy, normal, and hard game play.
Doodle Find (games)
Doodle Find is a digital search and find game for people with a keen eye for finding hidden objects. Players must hunt through hundreds of brightly colored doodles to find specific objects. The faster they are at spotting the pictures the higher their score is.
Hungry for McDonald's food at reduced prices? ???? ("coupon" in English) is an application that sources the latest coupons for McDonald's fast food restaurants in Japan. Users can obtain discounts on selected items during the specified dates.
Italian pasta manufacturer Barilla has put together an application that provides inspiring recipe ideas. The recipes range from simple, easy-to-cook everyday meals to rich and original kitchen concoctions. Users can choose their recipe by pasta type (there are over 70 different pastas to choose from), activate the geolocation data to select a dish from their region or search through the entire collection with the search feature.
Devil Invasion (games)
Devil Invasion is a crossover game that combines Bejeweled-style game play with role playing characteristics. Players move different colored blocks on screen to create chains of three or more blocks whilst earning weapons (such as magic stones, TNT, fire balls and arrow storms) that will keep the attacking army away from their castle.
