Violet storm is a game which has the same general concept as the ‘Asteroids’ game from years ago. Flying through space while shooting at different things which if you don’t kill them they will cause damage. This is much more complex than the original asteroids game though. First, there are many different types of enemies including asteroids but also enemies which will attack you and pursue you.
During the game you collect different ‘power ups’ which make your weapons more powerful or give you additional life or shielding. As you progress through the progressively more difficult waves you’ll be running into more and more complex enemies which will not only attempt to crash into you but also attack you with weapons of their own.
Sheep In The Sky is the first outing from Stimulus Response Games, and if this is any indication of their capabilities I think we’re in for some good things ahead. It’s a deceptively basic puzzle game, where the object is to get the sheep to the gate found somewhere on each level. The graphics are cute, giving it even more of an air of simplicity. You’ll soon find, however, that some of the levels will take more than a few seconds of thought to conquer. The game sucks you in early and keeps you glued even when you’re about ready to toss your device against a wall because a level seems unsolvable.
Endless War, a vertical space shooter recently launched by Omnitel, Inc. is a satisfying, if not particularly imaginative, take on alien blasting.
I haven't done a "What I Played" column in a while, mainly due to lack of time to play much of anything. As the saying goes about all work and no play--so decided it was time to take a break and grab some new games! This week I downloaded Action Block Buster, a multi-spacial brick breaking experience; nulis, a physics game which defies description; and an exceptional rail shooter freebie from Disney called Motorcity. Read on for the full WIPTW ("What I played this week") roundup of these new games.
I’ve played quite a number of time management games over the course of my reviews, and generally I find that the more hectic they are the more fun they tend to be. Of course the chaos needs to be organized, but the key is that there has to be a lot to do. Occasionally, though, I just want to have a nice, relaxing time, and Streetfood Tycoon fills that bill quite nicely. At times it almost feels more like an arcade game than a time management sim, but lest you forget you can always check all the stats to bring you back to reality. The important thing is that the game is fun, and I have become rather addicted to the game play and atmosphere.
With the large success of mob boss games found on the market; many developers are tapping into its popularity to create the newest one. This includes Big Gun; a mafia style game that offers deadly missions, amazing parties, loud music, and the opportunity to run an entire criminal gang. Of course; you are not automatically the boss when you first begin. As with any mob game; you have to work up to being the head honcho and this particular game will have you working hard.
Bird Hunting Mania! HD is one of the newest and addictive games to hit the App store. It is filled with bright colors, enticing antics, and challenges that has made it very exciting to play. At first it might not seem like much; but once you begin to hunt, you'll soon notice how strategic it becomes. The concept is simple; catch as many exotic birds as you can to bring back to Earth in order to start a colony. You are going to save the world from bird extinction; so get ready to hunt!
I’m a big fan of overhead racing games, and because I remember the days when the NES reigned supreme I can appreciate things like “old school” graphics, as long as they are done well. Like so many genres on the App Store, however, there are enough games of this type that you have to really do something different to stand out. Retro Racing’s biggest problem is that it really doesn’t, and beyond that it has a couple of issues that actually detract from the fun factor. I think the game is a nice start, but it might be a little too retro even for my retro tastes.
Gameday, Inc. has presented gamers with a brand new adventure game goody in the App Store. Help Purple is a cleverly constructed magical problem solving adventure that is chock-full of charm.
Oh My Nuts is a game app which is similar in many ways to angry birds where you have to launch something across the screen attempting to hit an object. In this game you are shooting a squirrel (out of the mouth of a pig) at a series of three stars with an acorn at the landing point. For each level you need to shoot the squirrel at the correct angle to get all three stars and land in the proper place to collect the nut.
