Rearrange your photos into interesting polygonal collages with today’s leading Fresh iPhone App, PolyMagic. We also have RZA’s World, an app that takes you into the animated mind of hip-hop artist RZA. In games, MinoMonsters is a role-playing game in which you fight and recruit monsters to help you, and Egg Punch puts a 3-D spin on mini-golf.

PolyMagic (iPhone, iPad) Free

PolyMagic lets you combine your photos together into a single interesting shape and design. The app creates polygonal frames for multiple photos, allowing you to change your shots from boring rectangular objects to more interesting affairs. You decide which frame you want your photos to be set in, then combine and move the shapes of each shot until you’re happy with the result.

The photos you add to PolyMagic share the space with other shots, and in order to make them look good together, the app cuts our photos down so they look like they fit together, sort of like jigsaw pieces. You can save your work when you’re done, and the app includes social networking features so you can show them off on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram.

RZA’s World (iPhone, iPad) $3.99

Get into the mind of Grammy winning hip-hop artist and music producer RZA with RZA’s World. The app is an animated set of rooms complete with RZA-related features including a 3-D chess game and the ability to hear RZA rap about your life as you live it, complete with words of wisdom. It’s a must for any fan.

In addition to the goofier elements like an RZA soundtrack for your life, RZA’s World taps you into all the latest news about the artist. It also includes a gallery of RZA’s original photography, and lots of never-before-seen footage of RZA that’s exclusive to the app.

MinoMonsters (iPhone, iPad) $0.99

Taking a page from the popular Pokemon games, MinoMonsters is all about collecting monsters to fight in turn-based battles as you explore an island after being shipwrecked. You choose a monster at the start of the game and wander the island, fulfilling objectives and locating other monsters to recruit to your cause.

One touch controls make everything in MinoMonsters really simple – you attack enemies by tapping them or by touching a special attack button, and you move your monster around the screen by tapping where you want to go. As you defeat enemies, you can gather up items they drop on the ground to boost your characters and level them up to make them more powerful. MinoMonsters also packs an online multiplayer mode that lets you fight your team of monsters against your friends’.

Egg Punch (iPhone, iPad) Free

Roll your way through mini-golf courses in Egg Punch. You play a bird whose feathers have been stolen, and the only way to retrieve them (apparently), is to roll yourself up inside an egg and shoot through various mini-golf holes, collecting feathers along the way. The more you collect and the fewer shots you take, the higher your score on each hole.

Egg Punch uses Angry Birds-like controls, allowing you to adjust the power and angle of each shot through the 3-D course. It packs 64 levels, items you can buy with coins you earn as you play, and Game Center support for achievements and leaderboards.
