Quick Look: Hanging With Friends

Most of you are familiar, by now, with the Words With friends phenomenon.  This surprise hit word game spurred the development of an entire genre (which I covered, here for iPhone Life).  Now, Zynga has come out with the latest entry to its, “…With Friends” online gaming series, "Hanging With Friends," which is a redesign of the classic pencil and paper game, Hangman.  Let’s take a quick look at the new game.



Review: Ionocraft Racing by Pan Vision AB

Apparently there will be pod style racing some day, because that seems to be what so many futuristic racers depict the vehicles being like.  I kind of get that feeling from Ionocraft Racing as well, but that’s okay because I like the whole “hovering craft” type of thing.  The game also has a pretty nifty customization system.  Unfortunately, the lack of any game modes beyond career / quick race and the absence of drivers other than yourself kind of dampen the festivities a bit.  Thankfully there is some decent track design to help pick it back up, and in the end you come out with a solid single player affair.

App Review - The Great Contest

Everybody likes prizes, and everybody likes games, so wouldn't it be great to combine the two together in a fun sweepstakes app? This app does exactly that. The Great Contest is a subscription-based contest app that allows you to play fun games and be entered into drawings for real prizes. And these aren't just some lame "break-the-first-time-you-use-them" trinkets. This is a Great Contest, so why not have great prizes, such as Xbox Kinects, vacations, or even cold hard cash!
