RookieRocket is a new game by app developer Fabian Heuwieser that features some simple and fun gameplay at a more than reasonable price. The game has you piloting a rocket towards the heavens while you collect stars and avoid barriers. Some stars slow you down, some speed you up, and one of them reverses the controls entirely. The coolest part of this game has to be the Challenges where you can send your score via email to a friend who may or may not own the game, and have them try and beat your score. This sort of Challenge is going to be even cooler over BBM and we’re hoping that makes it into an update.

More information available for LaterDude Pro in the BlackBerryCool Store. For those who already own LaterDude Pro, this is a free update.

DonTouch is Fabian‘s latest app and it protects your BlackBerry Storm or Storm2 from being touched by others. It uses the accelerometer and a car alarm sound to ward off anyone who might want to fidget with your expensive BlackBerry.
We had some great articles on BlackBerry Cool this week and just in case you missed them, here is a quick reminder post.
