Fresh Android Apps for Sep. 27: Cardcloud, Super Stickman Golf, Magic Defenders HD

by Ian Black

In today’s fresh apps, use Cardcloud to organize business cards, Super Stickman Golf as an adult version of Angry Birds, and Magic Defenders to teach evil Orcs a thing or two.

Cardcloud (Free)

As the title suggests, this app connects your Android device to a cloud for your business cards – both cards about you and cards you collect from others.

Using your existing Cardcloud account or register new from the app. Create multiple cards for yourself – if you freelance in more than one capacity for example – and send them to others. When creating cards about others, include details you don’t normally see in contact dbs including where and when you met the person.

If people nearby also have the Cardcloud app you can beam cards directly to them.

Super Stickman Golf (Free)

The folks at the club will pick this physics fling game over Angry Birds every time – it’s basically golf without the goofy pants or the “19th hole” bar.

Lots of obstacles stand between the golfer and the hole, including massive water hazards, towers, and caves. Fortunately, you have golf balls with special powers like ice for freezing water, super balls for extra bounce, and air brakes for stopping on a dime.

Play 33 courses and over 290 holes. Then, taunt your friends using the OpenFeint leaderboards and achievements.

Magic Defenders HD ($1.34)

Tower defense like you’re never seen it before. A peaceful village lives out a meager existence in a fantasyland. Meanwhile, angry Orcs are hunger for peasant meat.

Select your magical heroes to repel the invasion in three different scenes: near the forest, along the town’s defensive wall, and inside the town. Freeze, burn, and blast back the Orcs with overwhelming force. But, if you miscalculate your tower defense positions or powers and let even one Orc through, you and the other villagers are lunch.

New heroes get added to the game regularly. OpenFeint brings in competition from around the world.
