Ever wondered what it would be like to be an NSA agent? Now you can find out, with TouchTone, a game that has you root through suspicious messages to find out who’s a bad guy. 148Apps liked it enough to give it 4 out of 5 stars in their review.
However, TouchTone is more than just a pure puzzle game. It’s an interactive commentary on our current dystopian surveillance state. Every facet of the game works to uphold and reinforce that core theme, even if some facets work a little harder than others, and in that respect it succeeds. So catch it, before they catch you.
Epic iPad fantasy RPG Avadon: The Black Fortress has had its price dropped from $9.99 to $4.99.

Look for Driver: Speedboat Paradise in April.
