The truth is, I am not much of a puzzle gamer, as it were. I prefer more action-oriented titles, but the review of the occasional puzzle game never hurt anyone (see my review of SPB Quads here). My problems with puzzlers are not typically the fault of the game, but the fact I’m not smart enough to figure out the puzzles. I had no such problems with Crooked House.
When I played the original Radio Flare, I guess I didn’t “get it”, because while the game was okay I wasn’t overly impressed with it. Now we have Radio Flare Redux, and while I’m still not sure I “get it”, I think this is a marked improvement over the first game, and I really like this version. It still has moments where it can get as hectic as a traditional shooter, but by its very nature it’s a much more relaxing type of game. The visuals are odd, the music is good, and the overall feeling of the game is not quite like anything you’ve played before (unless, of course, you’ve played Radio Flare). It’s definitely an experience for those who feel they’ve played it all when it comes to vertical shooters.
Saving Private Sheep is the harrowing tale of an abandoned, scared flock of woolen comrades and the one ram that can bring them all safely out of the clutches of the nasty wolves. You are that ram. Can you handle the truth? Have I veered from the topic at hand? Why sheep? All – or possibly none – of these questions and more (or less) will be answered by the time this review is over. Now buckle in and read on to find out why you, too, should be saving some sheep…
You would think living in Maine with all the blackflies, ticks and mosquitos biting and buzzing around I'd be sick of slapping them all the time, but introduce Fly-flap (.99) and yup, I'm addicted.
The game is literally about slapping flies. The audio is kind of funny too. I like the graphics, since there's something almost surreal about their look - not lifelike but not really cartoonish either.
"Sunnyvale, CA - April 16, 2010 - Gamelion (http://www.game-lion.com ) announces today that the full version of best-selling kids/adventure game "Crazy Hamster" for iPhone/iPod touch will be available as free download this weekend.
Feeling left out because of all the iPad news? Here are some gadgets that can help iPhone and iPod touch users feel like an iPad owner at a fraction of the cost.
First, one of the nice features of the iPad is the bezel. Yes, many folks complained about it, post announcement but before they actually got their hands on one. The complaint was how wasteful the untouchable, black border was. But once you use it, you can see how it's important to be able to grip the device without being detected as a "touch" on the multitouch device. So for some games, this bezel makes a big, positive difference.
I saw a video of this game being played on the iPad the other day and I wanted to try it out. For $1.99, I bought it for my iPad. I have only played it a few times but I did want to share this information with you.
The free Karate Kid app includes five mini-games that test your Kung Fu virtues: courage, endurance, patience, perseverance, and will. You start out as a white belt and try to become a black belt and achieve martial arts mastery.
Look no further to keep your kids (maybe yourself) entertained than to Color & Draw (.99) from Tipitap Apps. Now, this app looks spectacular on the iPad, but I'm going to review it from the perspective of iPhone and iPod Touch because my colleague Cindy reviewed it in her blog, and it's awesome on the iPhone too!
OK, if I could solve this game in less than 30 minutes, then it’s not a very hard game. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m not a big gamer.
