Board Games — All in One ($1.99) now has an English version. You get 10 classic games for your iPad: checkers, chess, Chinese checkers, backgammon, tic tac toe, peg solitaire, Ludo, and more. I like the idea of having all of these games in one app for the iPad. They're attractively designed, and can accommodate up to 6 players. These are pretty basic. You won't be able to play against your iPad, though, as in other chess apps, for example. And to have access to the instructions, you'll need an Internet connection, since it simply accesses the info on Wikipedia.
I have played some offbeat games in my day, but Blork has to take the prize as one of the oddest, but also amongst the coolest (at least in terms of concept)! Not over the top on steroids cool, maybe, but understated cool at least! It's currently free in the App Store, so won't cost you a thing to experiment a bit if you want to try something a little different.
I love adventure games, but only if the graphics are vivid and the sound effects are effective. I want to feel like I’m actually having the adventure and solving the puzzles.
Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold HD does this for me. The graphics are awesome and the sound effects are lively and interesting. Water drips, cows moo, and clock chime. All this put me in the mood for a total immersion experience.
Right from the beginning, I enjoyed how the developers created a night scene where you have to use a flashlight to search for a way to turn the light on. That was fun! I also like the puzzle map – way cool!
I spend a lot of time every day riding the train….a lot of time. As in, two hours a day, each way. That is quite a bit of time to spend alone with my iPad…and the iTunes App Store. So, anytime I come across some kind of hidden gem in the app store, I like to take a minute to share it here with our readers. Not long ago, I came across Medieval HD, a truly gorgeous take on the tower defense genre. A few emails later, and the fine folks at Brisk Mobile were kind enough to send along a copy of the full version of the game for review.
Tap Disc is a a semi-quirky tap game featuring the challenge of rounding up bouncing and flying disks, but with the added twist of having to time and place your taps at just the right moment and screen spot. I warn would-be tappers that this game is not easy to master quickly (IMO), but presents unique, tap-elicious gameplay that is both pleasing to the eye, and engaging enough to keep you coming back for more. Read on for the full review...
Like millions of you, I have downloaded, enjoyed and even finished all the levels of Angry Birds, at least so far... more levels, please! So what is a user to do? Sure, Chillingo (which EA is buying) has released another Angry Birds version for Halloween and you should definitely get that. And they also released Cut the Rope, another pick-up-and-play game with cute graphics. But it's not the same in terms of controls or even orientation (landscape versus portrait). Fortunately, with any successful app, there are other vendors stepping up to the plate.
I was pretty shocked that no one has yet blogged here about the latest game app that has taken hold of my kids for the past few days and reportedly ‘sold 1 million apps in 10 days’.
I will eventually get around to checking it out, but if you are into addictive, simple time-killers, Tap Disk looks like it might be a good one. Tap to collect flying disks and collect points and power-ups...Looks fun!
If you are looking for one of the best Real-Time Strategy (RTS) games for the iPad, look no further than Land Air Sea Warfare HD. Graphics and sound combine with gameplay that in many ways is better than the original game that launched the RTS genre, Command & Conquer.
Every so often, a game for the iOS comes along that captures that addictive "just one more round" quality to keep players locked to their devices well past bedtime. Halfbrick Studios' Fruit Ninja is just such a game.
The objective of the game is as obvious as any classic arcade title. Shoot (or in the case of Fruit Ninja, slash) the bad guys (in this case, fruit) while avoiding the bombs. Increase the number and speed of targets and bombs with each progressive level. Miss three targets and the game is over.
