Magic Orbz for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch

image

Magic Orbz is a game which was very popular on the Play Station 3 platform and has now been ported over to mobile devices.  To play the game you have to throw and bounce balls through the different levels to break all the blocks before you run out of lives.  The game seems simple at first, but as the levels get progressively more difficult you’ll find that it can become quite challenging.



What I played this week - Slenderman, and Ice Riders!

image

Slenderman: Unknown Chronicles is one of a few games or apps on iTunes related to the Slender horror genre. The legend is of a tall, slender man that appears in the background of old photographs that include small children. Evidence of kidnappings surround these events, and the Slenderman is purportedly able to stretch his arms and torso to extreme lengths to capture his quarry. The game is sort of like an iOS version of Blair Witch Project (if anyone remembers that)! Ice Riders, a decidedly upbeat, platform-like snowboard simulation combines custom course design with tricky game physics to create a unique, chilly and fun time-killer...

Review: Squids Comics and Temple Run Comics by Ape Entertainment

image

There’s a reasonably credibly founded stigma regarding crossovers between video games and other media: it doesn’t work well.  When it comes to basing video games off of other media, you tend to lose the story in favor of events that simply take place in the same universe.  Go the other route and you find that many comics based off of video games pretty much have to come up with their own stories because the source material doesn’t have any.  Either way you tend to have a match that doesn’t feel made in heaven.  Ape Entertainment is trying to do their part to stay on the winning side of the curve with two offerings based off of currently popular mobile games: the Squids franchise of action / RPG games and Temple Run, the game that did for infinite runners what Angry Birds did for physics action games.  In terms of content they’ve mostly succeeded, though I’m still not quite sure how I feel about the interface.

Yatzius Rex is a fun “Yahtzee” simulator that actually takes the classic dice game a step further.  To start with you can play in the classic Yahtzee mode which allows each player to take one turn which is up to three rolls of the dice.  There are five dice in all and you're looking to get a wide range of different results in order to fill out your entire score card.  You can build up points by getting the maximum possible score for each section.
