You may already know I'm a lecturer on programming languages: Java and its relatives (e.g., C), non-language-specific technologies like OpenGL and, now, iOS programming.


Review: Pirate Mysteries by Kristanix Games

image

With companies like G5 Entertainment and Big Fish Games churning out quality hidden object games one after another, the market is quickly getting rather saturated.  This means that the little guy has to do that much more to make their game stick out from the crowd.  While Pirate Mysteries is certainly no eye sore, it doesn’t do a whole lot to distinguish itself in a more positive direction either.  Still, amusing dialog and several variations of object seeking help the game to be a fun and solid, if not overly original, title.



App Review: RabbitDash for the iPhone

image

Game maker Dragon Stone’s new release, Rabbit Dash, sets itself up against some fierce competition.  iPhone users aren’t exactly lacking in options if they like the continuously scrolling, beat-the-clock style offered by the endless-running genre.  So what makes Rabbit Dash so special that it has a chance against the heavy hitters in this genre saturating iTunes?



Puzzle Agent 2 HD Review

image

Players start the sequel to Puzzle Agent with Agent Nelson Tethers back in Washington DC staring up at the moon. But in short order, he finds himself once again in the familiar Scoggins, Minnesota territory for this second installment of his story brought to life on the iPad.

I reviewed the first Puzzle Agent game nearly a year ago and found it to be a cute, stress-relieving form of entertainment to unwind with after a long day at work. It sometimes taxed (though never overheated) my mind with puzzles that ranged from grossly obvious to mildly challenging.

 



Thirteen Year Old App Developer

Thirteen Year Old App Developer

Ann Arbor, Michigan - Red Sky, led by a thirteen year old boy, has just released their third iPhone app. Their first app, Soccer Copter, has been very successful. They have also published Soccer Skills, an app for the soccer fanatic. And now, their best app yet, Bumper Balls, is being released. In Bumper Balls, you launch the black balls at the red ones, with a slingshot-like firing mechanism. However, you have a limited number of shots, and obstacles in your way. Bumpers bounce your ball away, spikes destroy your ball, and vortex's suck your ball towards it. Also, bars block certain paths to the red balls. Bumper Balls has been highly praised by all of the reviewers, and is sure to be a huge hit. 

Bumper Balls is great because it:
*is a one of a kind


Flick Golf HD for iPad Review

image

Based on the original Flick Golf for iPhone, Flick Golf HD brings this finger slashing aim-for-the-bulls-eye projectile targeting game to the iPad. While the screenshots may give the somewhat misleading appearance of a minigolf-style course, Flick Golf HD consists of 5 'courses' which really are just five different environments with different tee-off and target locations. Additionally, it's not really golf but more of a flick the ball with your finger and control its angle of direction with a flurry of finger flicks to direct the ball as closely to the center of the bulls-eye as possible. You can continue to swish your finger on the screen once the ball hits the ground but only for a limited time.
