Guide Review - Arcade Game 'Tapcloud' for the Apple iPhone, iPod, iPad

Tapcloud uses some fancy technology, but the simple, addictive premise is straight from 1984. The goal is to tap as many clouds as possible within the time limit. However, to find the clouds, you literally have to turn your device up, down, behind you, and so on. Tapcloud uses the camera to place the elusive clouds in your actual environment, which means lots of tilting and tapping to get them all. Bad thunder clouds will end your game, while coins will extend your time. The quirky soundtrack and Super Mario-inspired graphics keep things pretty entertaining, and the leaderboard adds to the competition. Tapcloud is about as deep as the average old-school quarter muncher, and just as entertaining in small bites.
