Review: Last Temple by Gamelab

image

Last Temple is one of those matching games where you must drag your finger across three or more adjacent tiles of the same type to clear them.  It’s actually a pretty solid implementation of such game play, and the challenges are certainly quite a challenge.  However, Last Temple doesn’t really bring anything new to the genre.  I remember having lots of fun playing a similar game called Azkend, and I just don’t get the same sense of addiction from Last Temple as I did from that game.  If you love this type of game play (or are new to it) then Last Temple is a decent choice, but if this sub-genre of matching games has kind of warn on you, it might be better if you waited for Azkend 2.

What I played this week: Jelly Defense!

image

Definitely not another typical tower defense game, Jelly Defense is unique in both design and concept. The graphics are incredibly well conceived, bright and colorful. The sound is similarly intoxicating, but in a weird yet compelling way. I can't remember playing a TD game with this much flare. Enough with the colorful adjectives, and on to the review.

Review: Invasion Earth: 1953 by 285 Digital

image

Most side scrolling shooters involve aircraft of some sort, but few are taken from the viewpoint of the “bad guys”.  This is, however, the scenario of Invasion Earth: 1953, a post-Roswellian look at aliens trying to take over our beloved planet.  That’s basically it for a plot, and there’s not a lot of variety to the action.  What keeps drawing me back into the game however, are the (sometimes insane) goals and that need to try “just one more time” to reach them.  Invasion Earth doesn’t have a lot of the bells and whistles of many of its peers, but it has a satisfyingly addictive quality about it anyway.



iPad App Review - Skillz for iPad

image

Skillz has become one of the newest addictive games on the market.  The concept matches many other popular music games that test your rhythm, tap speed, and ability to rock the turn tables.  It’s similar to Guitar Hero and Rock Band, but much more difficult which makes it appealing.

A monstrously cool space adventure, Galaxy on Fire 2™, of which I have been known to fire up on me iPod touch a time or two, has been released apparently for the iPad 2 and iPhone 4s at HD quality (and at an HD price), which I think means that iPad 1 users are sort of left out in the cold (sob). The new game is refreshed with the latest high-quality graphics which require the punch provided by the A5 processor/GPU, so read on you lucky iPad 2 and 4S owners for the gory press details...
