Apps To Try This Week

Happy Turkey Day to those of you in Canada, and happy Columbus Day to my friends here in the US. If you're looking for some cool new apps to check out for the holiday, we have just what you need. I've scoured BlackBerry App World for the latest and greatest and found some apps and games that are worth checking out. Keep reading to see my picks this week, and as always if you have any to add, let us know in the comments.

Stick Runner

Stick Runner 

Stick Runner is another cool running game that will help you kill some downtime. No hard rules to follow here - just run, jump and roll for as long as you can. The more you run, the faster it gets. Pretty simple right? Insanely addicitive - I dare you to try and put it down. Grab it for $1.99 in App World.

Mario Bros Soundboard

This soundboard for the PlayBook features all of the lovably annoying Super Mario Brothers sounds. You can 1up your way to fun with this app for just $0.99. Yes, it's just a soundboard, but who doesn't love Super Mario Brothers?? I'm a fan of apps like this (Game Show soundboard is still my favorite) and continue to find fun uses for them.

If you haven't tried this game for the PlayBook yet, you need to ... now. It's free through October 31st so you have no excuses. Set in the future, you play a bounty hunter out to kill the leader of the mutant army. The graphics are amazing and the game play is awesomely fun. So download it. Seriously.

Screamager for BlackBerry 10

I had to sneak this one in for all the Dev Alpha owners. Our friend Marco has made a BB10 compatible version of his awesome app Screamager. Instead of rocking this on a PlayBook around your neck, it's more for the Dev Alpha as a belt buckle. It has the same great animations as the original, just in a slimmed down package. So if you have a Dev Alpha and want to test it out, you can grab it free in BlackBerry App World.
