Grand Prix Story
From Kairosoft, the makers of Game Dev Story, Hot Springs Story, and Mega Mall Story, comes yet another simulation/tycoon game. This one is set in the exciting world of professional racing, where you have to manage a team of drivers and mechanics. If it’s anything like the previous games, you won’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy this business-focused sim.
Price: $2.99 US
To-Fu 2 is the sequel to To-Fu: The Trials of Chi, an action-platformer that we absolutely loved. In the sequel, To-Fu gets an extra hundred levels to beat, plus a time trial mode and new outfits in the game’s store. If you’re serious about your jumping tofu skills, To-Fu 2 seems like it’ll offer a huge challenge.
Price: $.99 US

If you love hunting for items in a detailed image, download the free version and consider unlocking the full game through in-app purchase.
A lot of people have played Crush the Castle, and millions more have played Angry Birds, but Castle Clout wants you to know that they were around first. As a Flash game, Castle Clout has been played 35 million times, but now you can fire your trebuchet at flimsy medieval lean-tos right on your iOS device. After you finish all 150 levels, you can make your own, and share them with friends.

It’s too bad this gorgeous-looking indie adventure game will only run on an iPad 2, because we’re sure there are lots of iPad 1 and iPhone owners out there who’d love to give this game a try. Using robot logic, you have to solve puzzles in a strange world full of storybook-style illustrations and weird mechanical characters. Even if you can’t run the iPad 2 app, you can always buy the game for the PC online.
