With the sheer amount of iOS games and apps released every day, it?s easy to miss something really cool, so I?m really grateful to Eurogamer for alerting us all to Clockwork Pixels’ Kitten Sanctuary by nominating it as the Eurogamer App of the Day for today. The game has been out a few weeks, but I missed it when it first came out, so I?m glad to be able to tell you about it now. If you?re a cat lover, this will be just too cute for words for you and a must-buy, but even if you?re just looking for a spin on the old ?Match 3? formula, Kitten Sanctuary is definitely work a look. It really is the most adorable and fun game, with gameplay centering around rescuing kittens who have been captured by aliens. You save the kittens one at a time, by matching three or more items to collapse the trap containing the kitten. Aside from the Match 3 elements, though, you also get to look after your rescued kittens in kitten sanctuaries, and can even play with them with balls of wool and wind-up mice, and brush their fur, making them purr. Total cuteness! The game is set on an island, complete with lovely lilting Caribbean music, and the cartoon-style graphics are so sweet to look at too. A real delight to play, and it will really make you smile!

Pocket Gamer writes today that Plants vs Zombies has just had a major update. For iPad owners, the first, and possibly most exciting new feature is the Zen Garden, which plays like a mini spin-off to the main game, and acts as a calm, reflective sanctuary, if you will, where you can nurture the different types of plants that are found in the main game, enjoying a tranquil time away from the endless zombie shuffle-n?-slaughter fest. To help you look after your plants, you can spend the coins that you?ve earned from taking down zombies to buy gardening implements and tools from Crazy Dave?s Twiddydinkies shop. The iPad version also gets four new mini games in the update: Slot Machine Zombiquarium, Portal Combat, and Beghouled Twist, with the latter two modes being spoof, zombified versions of Portal and Bejeweled, respectively, as if you needed me to spell it out for you, which you probably didn’t!
The iPhone version of the game also gets an update as well today, including a new gaming mode, Vasebreaker (also available on the iPad version), where you get to smash vases, as you might expect from the name!
