What I played this week - EA gamefest!

image

What I played this week was mostly a festival of EA 99 cent titles (Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Mirror's Edge, and Battleship) that cost me too many hours of distraction when I should have been doing more productive things. I also found an app finder app called AppsCube Explorer that allows you to browse apps through a 3D interface. It helped me waste yet even more time by enhancing the navigation required to find more freebies--so I could waste even more time--if that makes sense. Select your next virtual iTunes gem in a slick 3-D gamelike interface! 

 



EA Shift 2 Unleashed FREE TODAY!

image

Man the Apps store is like going down the rabbit hole. Every time I open iTunes or go there on the iPad/Pod, I end up downloading 3 or 4 apps and ebooks I didn't know I needed (most freebies). It can trigger more impulse-shopping than a trip to Staples or Home Depot. Anyway, today EA has SHIFT 2 Unleashed up there for free, and I found that out using another freebie app called AppsCube Explorer (3-D app explorer which is cool all by itself), which I'll swing back and post up more info on in my next "What I Played" edition.

Review: Mushihimesama Bug Panic by Cave

image

From what little I know about Cave, they’re pretty famous for make excellent games that fall under the category of “bullet hell” scrolling shooters.  Bug Panic is certainly a far cry from that style of game play.  That doesn’t make it any less challenging, mind you, and actually goes to show that Cave is more than a one trick pony.  More importantly, it’s actually a nice change of pace from the typical dual stick shooter, which is the category it actually falls into.  The anime style cut scenes and overall cuteness might night be everyone’s cup of tea, but if you’re looking for a challenging dual stick shooter that doesn’t just feel like a clone of the rest, Bug Panic is a good choice for you.

So Chic Mahjong

So Chic Mahjong

So Chic Mahjong, the iPhone app, so chic and so free!

A new Mahjong game arrives on the AppStore. Its advantages should allow it to find a place on a very crowded market. Remi Gross, its creator, tells us more.

Why another mahjong ?

I was looking for a first casual game for iPhone/iPad. A simple concept, with universally known rules.
During my research I found that there was a large selection of mahjong (I stopped counting after 350), but the vast majority were very disappointing.
Either they are faithful to the tradition, but the game is unplayable with too small tiles, or the gameplay is simplified, but the layouts are too basic and boring.
    


FlamingIgloo iPhone App Review

image

The Flaming Igloo game is a fairly enjoyable yet challenging game.  The basic premise is you have to put out fires on your igloo by throwing snow balls at it.  If the fire goes on to long you’ll have to throw a large piece of ice at the igloo to fix it.  The makers of this game did a good job with the physics of the game making it challenging to throw the ice or snow at the right spot on the igloo.  There are many levels which get more challenging as you go and add in additional options. 



A new baby Ca-Mel is born!

A new baby Ca-Mel is born!

'Gua-Le-Ni', for the iPad, is now available on the AppStore!

Padova/Breda, November 28, 2011.  The gestation period of a camel lasts roughly fourteen months. The time between the conception and the release of our pioneering action-puzzle videogame lasted exactly as much. It took us more than a year to conceptualize, prototype, design, program, balance and polish ‘Gua-Le-Ni: or, the Horrendous Parade’ for its iPad debut. The end of our labor (ha-ha) has finally come and we are very proud to announce to you our AppStore release!
