What I played - Gobble edition!

image

Welcome to the Thanksgiving edition of my somewhat-weekly column featuring the games, apps or even gadgets I played with during the week. It's not always strictly iOS related, as last week (or was it the week before?) I reviewed the HP TouchPad, though a couple of the apps mentioned also have iOS versions. This week, it's all iPhone/iPod/iPad and all free, so if you want to get some game on this turkey day weekend, it won't cost you a cent. Bowmaster Lite brings you the thrill of the early pilgrims, who couldn't go to the supermarket to bag a turkey. Chromian Wars is a new war strategy sim game with AR features. My fav of the bunch has to be Falling Stars--quickly make funky tones/beats with this addictive and free music maker game.



Review: Corpse Granny by BulkyPix

image

Would you believe me if I told you Corpse Granny was another physics-based puzzle game?  Of course you would, because it’s been at least a couple of days since I’ve reviewed one of those.  This game does well what any physics based game should do – it lets the player manipulate objects to drop on, bounce into or otherwise dispose of various targets.  In this case those targets are zombies, which is just a nice bonus.  There are some great ideas in this game, but the pacing is a bit off and the introduction of new items is somewhat haphazard.  It hasn’t grabbed me quite as well as some other puzzle games, which is a shame because there is lots of potential.

The best iCade / iControlPad games Part I

image
I've always liked ­playing on my mobile devices, even back in the Pocket PC / Windows Mobile / Palm OS days. They revitalize me quite a lot, particularly after a hard, exhausting day.

Playing without physical controls (buttons), only using the touchscreen, is pretty hard. This includes a lot of game types, particularly ones where quick direction changes are needed and / or you can't make the smallest mistake and must be absolutely sure even the smallest movements on the directional pads (D-pad for short) is registered. In games like these, physical D-pad / button feedback is of extreme importance.
