Ruben and Lullaby [iPhone/iPod Touch]
Song New Creative
http://www.opertoon.com

"Ruben & Lullaby" is a story you play like a musical instrument.

Two lovers are fighting. You can control what they're feeling, where they're looking, when they speak, and when they listen. Your actions conduct a moody jazz soundtrack that reflects the feelings of the characters as they change in real time.

Motion and gesture controls allow you to shape the emotional peaks and valleys of the fight--shake the iPhone to make a character angry; caress the screen to calm them down. The characters will respond to each other’s emotions according to their temperaments, and every action has a reaction.

Try to get Ruben and Lullaby to make up, break up, or simply enjoy the beautiful music you can make out of their circumstances.

Zen Bound [iPhone/iPod Touch]
Secret Exit Ltd.
http://www.secretexit.com

Zen Bound is a calm and meditative game of wrapping rope around wooden sculptures - a simple task that can become surprisingly complex.

It is something to be enjoyed at a slow pace: a game where a high score is not the goal. Zen Bound is designed to challenge in a subtle way, it does not attack or force the player.

The key elements of Zen Bound are a user interface and gameplay that feel tactile and natural, a unique and aesthetic atmosphere delivered with beautiful graphics and a dusty ambient soundtrack by 'Ghost Monkey'.
