Type:Rider Game Review

image

I guess after you play or review a few high-caliber 3D action games—particularly ones with fast, stunning graphics and sound—you sort of become numb to similarly fantastic, over-the-top games. You overdose on them, or at least I do. You need to cleanse the palette, as it were. Eventually along will come a simple game, completely out of nowhere. No fancy 3D engine, shaders, or blazing polygon models. Just clever use of lighting, and in-game ambience that is so darn good, it is like discovering the wonder of your iPad for the first time. Type:Rider ($2.99) is exactly that kind of game.

Using your iOS Device to prepare your Kids for Pet Responsibility

image

There is no doubt that owning a pet is a huge responsibility. Even something as small as a fish needs a fair amount of TLC. It is easy to talk about the responsibility of owning a pet, but the reality of it can be an entirely different thing for children. Luckily there are a number of virtual pet games that will help introduce your children to the world of pet care. It can be difficult to find the perfect one for your child, especially when a lot of them are focused on building a pet shop versus actual pet care. I have come up with a few of the best for aiding your kids in preparing for a pet. 



What I Played this Week - Orborun, Gods VS Humans and Asphalt 8!

image

This was a good all-around gaming week: Three decent games, and only one featuring detested in-app purchases (IAPs). Top billing goes to Orborun ($1.99), which is a mind-melting 3D physics puzzler with multi-level high-flying courses and tricky obstacles. Gods VS Humans ($1.99) is a different strategy game that pits you against ancient humans that are trying to dethrone you as their deity—also great for the whole family. Asphalt 8: Airborne ($0.99), previously reviewed by Siva Om, is about as freaking cool a race game as you can find in the known universe.
