App Review - iPolygon

image

A logic and action-based puzzler, iPolygon, has recently been released as a universal app on the App Store.

The game has been designed to be played in the portrait orientation mode with the player either relying on swipes or gyroscope controls.  Gameplay revolves around a ricochet mechanic.

The aim of each level is to keep a moving ball inside a structure full of colorful walls while breaking all the walls in each level. This means that  players want to hit the walls and break them, but keep the ball constantly moving; and not fall off the edge of the structures' walls into space. There are also two smaller power-up orbs available that stay stationary.

What I am playing this week - rRootage Online and Magic Defenders!

image

Working on a couple of reviews, but wanted to get the word around about two newer titles am trying out this week and also admit to playing SlotZ Racer for more hours than I should have. rRootage Online HD is a top-down, scrolling shooter port of a game originally from legendary programmer Kenta Cho. "Shoot-N-Squirm" from a hail of bullets might be an apt description. Magic Defenders is yet another Tower Defense, but with a wizard manning the watch...

Review: Pocket Warriors by Rainbow Game

image

Some have reasonably argued that full fledged RPGs are a bit too overwhelming for the portable market where the majority of users only spend minutes at a time playing games.  Several developers have attempted to provide the RPG fix without the RPG commitment, and Pocket Warriors is one of those games.  It actually fits the mold somewhat well, except for the fact that it’s so watered down the game play becomes redundant and boring rather quickly.  At least it looks pretty and sounds halfway decent, though.

What I played this week - Slotz Racer, Destructopus, and Nu!

image

This week, I discovered a slot car racing experience (called SlotZ Racer) which is about the most fun I have had playing games on the iPod touch (the developers really nailed it). Another fun distraction has been Destructopus, a scrolling smash-n-duck monster attack. Finally, not strictly under the "what I played" category, but figured I would close out with a mini-review of the social news reader called nu.
