Blackbar

Somewhere between a crossword puzzle and a choose your own adventure novel, you'll find Blackbar ($3) — a word game of censorship and storytelling. This game tells the story of a science fiction dystopian future through a series of redacted documents, where the story (and the game) gets more complex as you make your way through. As you fill in the blacked out words, the conspiracy behind the story becomes less opaque. And, while it doesn't bash you over the head with its views on the suppression of free speech, its message against censorship is certainly present.

  • Crowsflight

    Your smartphone makes for a valuable tool when exploring an unfamiliar city, but data chugging maps apps can really hog your battery, potentially leaving you stranded with a dead device. Crowsflight ($Free) uses the GPS capability on your iPhone to help guide you around town.
