I hate doing chores, but failing to get stuff done spurs the wife to increase her volume levels in a not-so-happy way. So I do them. But this pretty rad little iPhone app takes some of the sting out of the grueling tedium that is washing dishes, taking the dog out to pee every 5 minutes, and taking out the garbage/recycling etc. Epic Win lets you earn XP for tackling crappy tasks, and level-ing up your little adventurer dude quickly becomes an addictive incentive to muscle through some lame daily tasks. I had fun with this app. You should check it out…and my review, which can be found at GamesRadar over here.
“They say a clean desk is a sign of a sick mind, but what if your work surface is swarming with malevolent creepy crawlies? When the prospect of cleaning your desk is far less exciting than defending it from a virtual battleground full of persistent invaders, it’s time to ignore your clutter piling up around you and boot up your computer. Desktop Defender, the Facebook version of the popular Desktop Tower Defense game, puts you in charge of mounting an organized defense of your blessed mess.”
