Apple appears to be making more moves to “tidy” the App Store.

We reported last week about Apple removing the vast majority of apps from iTunes that they considered contained too much “adult orientated” material. Over the weekend we also took a look at how Apple were removing some WiFi Signal Finder apps from iTunes (otherwise known as “Stumblers”).

Soul for iPhone: Delve in to the Darkness in this Gut Churning Horror Game

Soul Rating: It’s pretty rare that a computer game can strike fear into you, the original Resident Evil was the first to make me physically jump while recently it was the eerily superb Fear that had me reaching for the cushion.

Kill the Fly Review: Killing fly’s have never been such fun
