Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and people are: (a) hooking up; (b) making up; or (c) breaking up. Whether you’re on your way in, out or just looking around, here are some fun and games and apps to keep you occupied on one of the busiest days of the year.
Instant Poetry Universal for iPhone and iPad (1.99)
You might want to give Instant Poetry a spin if you’re looking for ways to express your love this Valentine’s Day. Choose from pre-selected words and arrange them into a poem to your liking. Note that if you’re not too keen on love, the app as different themes that may adequately express your emotions.
CupidStrikes for iPhone ($0.99)
CupidStrikes is your ultimate dose of all that’s fun, pleasant and cute on Valentine’s Day. It also makes for a nice quick arcade game that tests your skills and reflexes, all while looking to kill a few minutes.
Single and ready to mingle? Check out BarStar for some fun and fast bartending action. Serve drinks and a variety of crazy customers (including zombies!), in an endless party like no other! You’ll find that halfway into the game, you have gained significant knowledge about the different drinks out there, and you might want to go out with your girlfriends to celebrate.
New York Nights: Success in the City for iPhone ($4.99)
If you’re a hopeless romantic or you just want to know if you have what it takes to conquer the Big Apple, then you might want to check out New York Nights: Success in the City where your goal is to become fabulous and successful, and win over a celebrity hottie.
The Creeps: Holiday Edition Universal for iPhone and iPad ($0.99)
Looking for something a little offbeat? I heartily recommend the Valentine megapack (available via in-app purchase) of The Creeps. Here’s your chance to shoot down all that makes Valentine’s Day special. With funny, hand drawn art and equally funny sound effects, The Creeps makes for a good companion on what many see as the loneliest day of the year.
Wedding Dash might set off warning bells in your head – or that of your significant other, but before you end up arguing about commitment issues, please remember that Wedding Dash is just a game. It’s not a “dash” to the altar, nor is it a subliminal hint for your man to take it to the next level. One of my personal favorites and one of the best Dash games ever to come out, this game will help scratch that commitment itch, complete with all the drama of wedding organizing, and a totally risk free endeavor.
iKamaSutra HD for iPad (Free)
If you’re looking for some excitement in that department, Kama Sutra XL is more than just about trying out new positions, it’s also about understanding an ancient text that doubles as a guide to merging love and pleasure. Free, instructive and plain fun, here’s your chance to do something a little different this year.
Last but not the least, tons of apps are on sale. Let me point you to Alawar, one of my favorite publishers for time management and other casual games. Most of their apps are on sale and free, so don’t forget to check them out!
