One of the coolest things I saw at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this year was the Rift, virtual reality goggles from developers Oculus. Oculus takes the science of vision and applies it to virtual reality gaming in an arena that will be intimately familiar to any fan of iOS gaming.
When G5 released Nightmares From The Deep, I had actually started to grow weary of hidden object games. Thankfully the balanced game play, focus on adventuring aspects, and interesting story kept me captivated until the end of the game. It even convinced me to play the bonus adventure, which I had never done before. Now G5 brings us another treasure from the same developers in the form of Abyss: The Wraiths Of Eden. While I’m not quite sure if I like this one as well as Nightmares From The Deep yet, there’s no question that it shares the same high quality as the previous game. Adventure and hidden object fans should have a great time with this one as well.
Zombie Master is a fun game that combines all the fun and strategy of StarCraft with the action of Gears of War together into one great game. As the name implies this game centers around hunting zombies, and keeping yourself alive. To conquer the game you need to gather items including minerals, gas and foods so you can build different buildings, create new units and upgrade them both to keep yourself strong.
If you were lucky enough to own a NES and had good taste in games then you have probably played Balloon Fight at some point. It was ported to a few other systems, and there were a couple of updates through the years, but sadly this title has been largely ignored in the gaming community. While it’s not anything officially tied to one of my favorite 8-bit games, there’s no question that Balloon Loons draws its inspiration from the aforementioned video game. With its colorful visuals, cute adversaries and plenty of levels to explore, Balloon Loons is certain to satisfy that craving for balloon popping that all former NES owners have.
Welcome to my roundup of some of the best new (and updated) iOS games! This week we'll take a look at the uniquely genre-defying greatness that is Heroes and Castles, the adrenaline-fueled racing madness of 2XL MX Offroad and the refreshing word puzzlement of Letter by Letter.
Some ex-Rovio gamemakers teamed up under the Boomlagoon banner to create another 2-D physics game--a platform scrolling game called Noble Nutlings. The free game is hugely fun and probably destined for gaming success! The other game I tried out this week is Pinball Arcade. Electronic Pinball is to iPad what jelly is to peanut butter, and the easy touch and robust graphics of iPad make almost any 3-D pinball game just plain awesome! Pinball Arcade is one of the most authentic recreations I have seen done on any hardware. Too bad the freebie lite mode times you out and charges you to buy tables, but well, developers gotta eat too... and the lifelike tables are easily worth the price!
As a kid, I didn't play Cats in the Cradle much... But I did play it a little bit. If you're note familiar with the game, one person holds some string or a rubber band in their fingers and the next person interacts with it and so on. It's more than a game, because you're learning problem solving skills, not to mention physics and geometry!
G5 is probably best known for their adventure and hidden object games, but they have been branching out into other genres including time management and more recently physics puzzle games. Jumpster was an interesting first effort in the latter genre whose initial release was ultimately marred by an almost absolute necessity to buy IAP in order to play for any length of time. Green Jelly is their second physics puzzle release and it has managed to make a much better impression on me overall, except for the less than amicable controls. At least there's no IAP though.
The water cycles app is an entertaining game where you have to help guide the water from the mountains out to the sea using different pieces along the way. The game gets challenging because you have to also bring the water to different towns, villages and cities to use before it finally makes its way to the sea. Still not hard enough? Well, when the water goes through the different cities it will get polluted, and you need to filter it to make it clean again before finally bringing it to the sea.
I just got back from the amazing and spectacular event that was 2013’s Consumer Electronics Show. I had a blast, it was a great time with great people. Nonetheless, I'm a country boy at heart, and it's nice to be back in the rugged wilderness (relatively speaking) that is Sedona Arizona.
If you follow my iPhone Life magazine articles and blog postings then you already know a bit about me. I'm an enthusiast of all things outdoorsy, rugged and environmentally friendly. That said, there was certainly no shortage of amazing new iOS gadgets and gear that could make valid claims of meeting the rigorous IP
military-grade standards, that were being presented at this years CES. Read on for a sampling of some of my favorites in the category of heavy-duty, rugged and durable accessories. Trust me when I say, we have a lot to look forward to, in this category, this year.
