Lost Civilization Game Review

image

I try not to generalize, but when folks besides Big Fish Games or G5 put out hidden object games they tend to be not much more in-depth than moving from scene to scene to find a list of objects. Lost Civilization ($4.99) fits right in with the best titles from the two aforementioned companies, with a strong storyline, interesting characters, and game play that goes far beyond simply uncovering a bunch of items in a few panoramic scenes.  Phoenix Online Studios already made a strong stand in the iOS adventure game world with the Cognition series, and now they’ve shown that they know a good hidden object game when they see it as well.

Card Dungeon has been renovated!

The award winning Card Dungeon has recently been patched and is now even more awesome!

New features!

Quick move: As long as Crusader is not in range of any monsters you can now move much more quickly across the maps to interesting objects on the map. This makes for a much faster gameplay with less downtime between encounters.

Smaller rooms:We have shrunk the max size of the rooms for tighter, faster and tenser gameplay.

Save game: Card Dungeon is now saved at every turn so you can go ahead and answer that call and the game will pick up right where you left off.

Double Review: Replay Video Editing App, Featuring Parrot's A.R. Drone 2.0

image

This is really two mini reviews in one. A while back the folks at Parrot wanted me to check out their A.R. Drone remote controlled aerial vehicle. So I spent a couple of months doing some product testing. In the process I utilized the quadricopter's two onboard cameras along with Parrot's FreeFlight (Free) drone control app to shoot some video, which I wanted to include with my reviews. Then the dilemma arose of where the heck to find the time in my busy schedule to both write a review and edit about 25 minutes of aerial video down to a short snippet that I thought people might be interested in watching. Enter the remarkable video editing app, Replay, which I learned about during Apple's live presentation of the iPad Air 2.
