iPad Mini 16GB Wi-Fi Review - Week One

image

This is my 2nd review of the iPad mini after my unboxing post, and a week of heavy use. I have managed to get it mostly configured and working with Wi-Fi and my Bluetooth devices, but I feel like I have barely begun. iCloud is not really what I consider an integrated cloud service though I can't blame Apple. The various service ecosystems do not help matters, and thus I still have not configured all my apps and services (i.e. gmail exchange service for calendars, contacts, etc.), but am getting there slowly but surely. In this post, I focus on the screen, camera and related apps...



What I played this week - Ichi and more gaming news

image

This week, I review Ichi; advanced pong/puzzle game rising fast in app store popularity, and as about as simple as a game can get and still provide devilishly mind-twisting fun. Also, some important news: for those who have heard me ranting but not yet sampled the Galaxy on Fire 2 space adventure (SD version)--99 cents for a very limited time (expires June 15th, 2012) so do not tarry too overlong to snag it. In other iOS gaming news, Bank Job side-runner freebie has been released, and a new 3D racer called Bounty Racer coming this summer. I hope to review both in an upcoming WIPTW column, time permitting. Read on for the Ichi review and full game news releases...



What I Played This Week - Chromian Wars, Zombirds, and more game news...

Lot's of news to post up on, and I played at least one new game this week. Shoot the Zombirds created by Infinite Dreams (Jelly Defense, Can Knockdown), is target practice in Halloween-land (if there was such a place), a second variation to Shoot the Birds. Also posting a rewind review on Chromian Wars 1.2 as they updated their app after our initial feedback. Both games are worth a look. For the news: a new expansion pack coming for the top 3-D space shooter, Galaxy on Fire 2 (probably my most played game any week); a new turn-based strategy game called LostStar Tactics (from the creators of Staunch Defense); and speaking of exciting new TD, just out, Defender Chronicles II! Whew, that's alot, so let's dig in, shall we...



What I played this week - My favorite games with the JOYSTICK-IT!

image

Out of town on business, and didn't have much time for games, but when I returned this weekend (to be greeted by Hurricane Irene) I had finally received a package with 2 JOYSTICK-IT Arcade stick game accessories (bought one for my daughter) from my fav geek site ThinkGeek.com! So, after battening down the hatches, I wasted no time trying one out on several of my favorite games (Galaxy on Fire 2, Jet Car Stunts, and Paper Racer), and wow is this a simple yet worthy add-on!

What I Played this Week!

Most of the minimally alotted gaming time (am trying to stay on a budget) again spent playing Galaxy on Fire 2 and Robokill (from the last "What I Played" post), but also found some time to try (in vain) to keep big rig trucks from hitting each other (Highway King--review
