Review: Greedy Bankers by Alistair Aitcheson

image

The more I play mobile games, the more I realize that sometimes simpler is better.  I don’t mean a game that’s easy, mind you, but a game that doesn’t have a lot of options or settings or menus to mess with.  Greedy Bankers is one such game, and it’s very easy to get lost in once you get started.  It’s also one of those games that will often have you gritting your teeth down to the very last second… assuming, of course, you make the last second match to move on to the next level.

Mahjong Towers Touch HD Review

image

One of my favorite computer games is Mahjong. I choose it over Solitaire any day. I recall the first time I played Shanghai, developed by Brody Lockhart and published at the time by Activision, back in 1987. It was one of the first Mahjong titles that captured the beauty of the game in the now iconic tile selection interface. I played it on an Atari ST back in 1987 on a monochrome monitor and thought it was one of the most beautifully executed and original titles I had played for that or any platform at the time. Seems the rest of the world agreed, since even after nearly 25 years since its release, it is still as relevant and strongly sought after as ever. Case in point - Big Fish's latest interpretation on the iPad of this popular tile matching game.

App Review - Nikki Holiday and the Pirate Star

image

Released earlier this month, Nikki Holiday and the Pirate Star is yet another point-and-click adventure game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Available for only one dollar, the application takes you through the few days leading up to main character, Nikki's, fame as a singing celebrity. There are currently a whole bunch of similar titles able to be purchased on the App Store, but this certainly takes the cake.

Despite the popularity of other games soaring high, I have to say that Nikki and the Pirate Star was undoubtedly the most amount of fun I've had with point-and-click games as such. I'm not a huge puzzle buff nor am I a fan of such titles, but this truly won over my free time over the past few days.



Quick Look: Jangle

It should come as no surprise in these parts that I am a sucker for a word game.  In fact, not long ago I posted a roundup of a few of the more popular variations.  One that I left off at the time was a game which was then called Squabble.  Not long ago, Squabble all but disappeared from the App Store for a short time, only to reappear last week with overhauled graphics and a brand new name: Jangle.
