I love Hangman, especially on my iPad that I can take anywhere. If I have a few minutes to wait, I pull it out and play a round.
Custom Hangman is a bit different than some of the others I have found in that you can add your own custom word lists. You can play them yourself and share them with friends. You could even help your kids learn their spelling words by using this app!
Included in the app, are twenty word lists and game categories, including SAT words, which are the ones I especially enjoy. The app works with iPhone and iPod Touch. Check out the video below:
I like positive solutions, and Barefoot Explorers has created a fun and entertaining game that provides a positive solution for our environment. For every Panda Hero
game that is sold, they plant three live trees through a partnership with Trees for the Future
Your job in Panda Hero is to tilt, roll, swerve and jump through mazes, forests, rice fields and more in order to rescue the Panda that have been trapped by poachers. After rescuing the Pandas, you can feed, dress and play with them.
Puzzles are great fun. Now I can put a puzzle together anytime and in anyplace. I don’t have to worry about lost pieces or even having my cats jump on it and mess up my hard work!
It’s been a while since I’ve mentioned it (at least since the last time I reviewed a scrolling shooter), but I love scrolling shooters. They don’t even necessarily have to be very original, though it certainly doesn’t hurt. They just have to look good, sound good, and have solid play mechanics. Oh yeah, they have to be fun as well. I’d even be able to overlook the audio and visuals to an extent if the game played well. Fortunately, Above And Below plays pretty well indeed. It also looks sharp and sounds good. Unfortunately the controls need a bit of work. Surprisingly, I’m okay with that.
If you've never seen extreme sheepherding, you've got to watch this 3-minute. I just couldn't believe it when I first saw it.
if you enjoy trivia games, you might like QRANK, a free daily trivia quiz. Plus, it has a social component such that you can compete with your friends or try to get a high score on the leaderboards in various regions. Each day there are 20 new questions taken from current events.
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.
