by Ian Black

What’s more fun than tracking a package? Tracking your pizza from creation to its drop off at your door. Download the fresh Domino’s Pizza USA app to stalk your own pizza.

Shogun delivers a retro game in a new touchscreen version, and Where’s My Landing? helps you practice for the worst-case-scenario of air travel.

Domino’s Pizza USA (Free)

Pizza cravings arrive unexpectedly anywhere and anytime. That’s what makes this new Domino’s Android app very convenient and compelling. You can place an order and track its delivery to you, or its readiness for pickup at the closest Domino’s storefront.

You can order off the full menu including their Legend, Feast, and Artisan pizzas or their chicken, pasta, sandwich and desert choices. It provides coupons, lets you purchase through a credit card, and will remember the location of the last Domino’s at which you placed an order. And remember, it’s personal. You can track your individual order while in the “makeline”, the oven and out for delivery to you.

Shogun (Demo Version) (Free)

Hunker down with this modern tribute to the retro Japanese arcade games of the 1990s. The genre is known as “bullet hell” because of the unending onslaught of enemy ships and attacking weapons. Here, you guide your armed spaceship into battle against all manner of alien creatures and crafts.

Upgrade your weapons in real-time to repel the almost overwhelming force and rock out to the thumping electronic soundtrack as you do. Look closely and you’ll notice that the game’s design might look like original graphics from the arcade versions, but in fact its retro-styled ships rolling over an up-to-date HD background. Check the global leaderboard to see how you rank.

Where’s My Landing? (Free)

It’s said that the most dangerous times of plane flight are the takeoffs... and the landings! This app will show you just how dangerous the landing part can be. Your small private plane is just about run out of fuel and you’ll have to land in the next few seconds. Unfortunately, the ground below offers no obvious runway so you must create one by clearing the obstacles including trees, stone columns, and other hazards with your on-board bombs to flatten the ground into something useful.

You’ll only be able to make a couple of passes before you run out of fuel and crash so you need to be accurate with your bombs. Watch out for water hazards ‘cause you don’t have any pontoons!
