Get amped-up for the newly started baseball season with Topps BUNT, an app that lets you connect with other fans, build a fantasy team and compete with others for points. The app also lets you track your favorite players and interact with others In order to give you more to do than just watch baseball. It’s followed today by Jittergram, an app that lets you create stereoscopic 3-D images or shoot stop-motion animation to be converted to .GIF image files and shared online. Kitten Sanctuary, a super-cute match-three game with pet sim elements, leads today’s game offerings, followed closely by Clippox Exodus, a platformer in which you get to wield magic.

Topps BUNT (iPad) Free

Topps BUNT is a social companion app meant to act as your companion to the 2012 baseball season.

The game lets you interact with other baseball fans, too, and it’s designed to appeal to the casual fan as well as the hardcore.

You’ll build a team of nine players in Topps BUNT, and if you need a different player after you’ve drafted your team, you can trade with others using the app. Topps BUNT also includes regional leaderboards, so you can see how your team stacks up against those of other players, and lets you track real games to see how your players are doing in real time.

Jittergram (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Photography app Jittergram lets its users create unique images. Jittergram specializes in stereoscopic 3-D effects, the kind where your eyes each see a different angle of the image in order to make it appear to jump out at you. The app allows you to make your own 3-D images out of any picture, as well as to shoot stop-motion videos with the help of your iOS device.

When you first fire up Jittergram to take a photo, the app lets you choose between setting up a 3-D image or a stop-motion recording with one button. Then you just take you photo normally and the app processes it. You can save it when you’re finished, creating a 3-D image or an animated GIF file you can share with others.

Kitten Sanctuary (iPhone, iPad) $1.99

Part match-three puzzler and part pet simulator, Kitten Sanctuary is a speedy little puzzle game in which you need to break kittens out of cages after they’ve been captured by aliens. To do so, you’ll need to puzzle through the game’s match-thre levels by moving objects around on a grid to make groups of three. The idea is to make your combinations over the specially colored squares, which disable the power running to the cages. Once you’ve disabled all the power, the kittens can get free.

Once you’ve freed a few cats, you’re able to hang out at your beach base of operations, where you’ll find all of the cats waiting for you. Once there, you’ll need to take actions to help manage their moods and keep them happy, like rescuing more cats and playing with them. Kitten Sanctuary includes 50 unique cats for you to rescue and 100 levels to play through by the end.

Clippox Exodus (iPhone, iPad) $2.99

Platformer Clippox Exodus puts you in the role of a Clippox, a forest spirit kind of guy tasked and part of a group that lived inside a sacred tree. When the tree is destroyed, you set out as the village’s shaman in order to help find them a new home. The controls are fairly simple and common. You’ll move left and right in the 2.5-D world the game creates, jumping over enemies and blasting them with your staff.

You’ll run into lots of enemies on your way through Clippox Exodus, but your shaman will be helped along with powers of his own, such as magical prowess that can channeled through his staff. Clippox features hand-made fantasy illustrations for its art style, as well as an engaging story and some solid platforming gameplay.
