Game Review: Dark Meadow

image

I watched the promo videos for this game and decided it was something I really needed to try.  I had no idea what I was getting myself into.  At once this game is both intriguing and frustrating.  I feel like I’m spending too much time traipsing over the same hallways over and over again, yet every time I find a journal entry or news clipping I really want to know more about what’s going on.  I think this game is as much a product of its environment as anything, because I really don’t believe it would be nearly as much fun to explore if it didn’t look so good, yet it’s easy to lose a half hour or forty-five minutes wandering the hallways of Dark Meadow in the blink of an eye.

Havoc iPhone App Review

image

Havoc is a simple game with top down graphics.  The concept is very simple; you choose one of three different monsters to play as your character.   Once you choose your character and level you are onto the game play.  For each level you are looking down on the monster who is walking straight down a path (Each level the path is different) and as you walk different items come towards you which you have to throw rocks at.  To throw rocks you just drag your finger from your monster toward the object which you want to hit.  You can pick up more rocks as they come across your path by simply tapping them.  Once you reach the end of the path you’ve completed the level and you get points based on how many targets you hit and accuracy.

image

The Incipio Delta iPhone 4 case is compatible with iPhone 4/S both Verizon and AT&T model. It is made of a high density polycarbonate and silicon material.  The Delta offers a great deal of protection for the iPhone 4. The Incipio Delta case is made of two layers of silicone type material. The first layer of protection that goes on the iPhone like a rubberized skin. Second, it has a exo-skeleton type material surrounding the entire device. The exo-skeleton simply snaps over the other skin covering to form great protection.  The two combined offer a great deal of support and protection for both the front and back of the iPhone 4.
