image

Due to other reviews and the mad holiday and CES email avalanche, I totally missed the press release on this new Sunside game (recently also "greenlit" on Steam Greenlight) called Abducted, which is a space horror RPG that uses the Radiance game engine. The first episode (of several to come) was actually released for iOS back on December 19, 2013, and the game in the US app store has been discounted to $2.99 for a limited time.

Described as an interactive M.C. Escher artwork, Monument Valley may change the way you play puzzle games. It's currently being developed by London-based design studio ustwo, specifically for iPad.

The ustwo team established the game as a "surreal exploration through fantastical architecture and impossible geometry." Designer Ken Wong adds: "Monument Valley is a beautiful, exploratory experience, somewhere between exploring a toy shop and reading The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe."

What I Played This Week: Angry Birds Go and Quantic Pinball!

image

There's a buzz over Angry Birds Go (free), and 'freemium" titles in general to discuss in this edition of WIPTW. I was not aware that computer bits were being subjected to such draconian work conditions on our devices that they needed to rest; but Angry Birds Go introduces the "energy" concept to the Rovio game chest: a union break for overworked player characters, I suppose. Otherwise, ABG has plenty of good graphics, and is mostly goofy and fun like a cart race should be. Also played this week is the jam-packed action pinball slam of the season called Quantic Pinball ($2.99). If you like pinball, you will gorge yourself on this version.

Penguin Blitz - Defeat hordes of greedy penguins using ice cream

Penguin Blitz - Defeat hordes of greedy penguins using ice cream

Penguin Blitz offers the truly unique opportunity to defeat greedy hordes of penguins by catapulting ice cream at them. From behind your fortress walls you and your small band of polar bears must act quickly to use the correct catapult to defeat the closest penguin. Easy to get into, the first levels function as quick tutorials, and are instantly fun. As you gain more and more badges by splatting troops of penguins, they begin to employ more and more devious tactics and disguises which add a whole new dimension to the game. By the end levels you will be tapping the screen like a dog trying to rid itself of a particularly persistent itch!
