Review: Youda Survivor by G5 Games

image

Well, G5 Games has done it again.  Jane’s Zoo, Supermarket Mania 2 and Jack Of All Tribes were all excellent time management games, and I expected nothing less from Youda Survivor.  The reality, though, is that at some point one of these games just isn’t going to shine like the others.  Thankfully we haven’t reached that point yet.  This game is as addictive as the rest, and it already has me anticipating the next great G5 time management wonder.

Hurry before the sale ends, and the app store fun jumps back to non-holiday totally sane rates...!



What I played this week - Snow Fight!

image

This week, I really had a blast with Snow Fight, but I was not happy about the game offering up a few appetite-whetting levels, and slapping you with an in-app purchase to continue (not a big fan of in-app purchases)... I put a crowbar in my iTunes wallet and plunked down the fat 99 pennies required to unlock the full 40+ levels remaining (yes, quite the iTunes Scrooge). The first zone of 6 or so levels is gratis, but doubtful anyone will begrudge the additional expense of unlocking the others. Simple fun is priceless after all, and the game does deliver that...



Factor Samurai - Cut non-prime numbers down to size!

Back in my day when we used things like sliderules, protractors, and multiplication tables (had mine printed on a little cheat sheet), I remember thinking what a total drag mathematics were. I'd rather be outside playing kickball. If I would have had Factor Samurai, I would have jumped on my "times tables" like a shark eating a surfer (go shark)! If you got school kids mildly to severely uninterested in math, this is a clever way to get them interested. Read on for more review comments and info on the app...



FreeAppWall Review

image

The app called “Free App Wall” is easily the best one of its type which I’ve tried so far.  The point of this handy app is to find other apps which are not normally free but are for one reason or another.  This is often because the other apps are new or being promoted or something of this nature but the bottom line is this is the best way to find great apps for free that I’ve seen.



Review: I Won't Fall by Agni Studios

image

I Won’t Fall is the heartwarming saga of a mother hen who will risk anything to save her baby chicks.  In all honesty the game can sometimes get a bit depressing, especially when you get smacked again and again by the picture of a baby chick with a solitary tear running down its cheek if you fail a level.  Have no fear, though, because love always prevails and when you finally conquer the treacherous surroundings and reach each baby chick you’ll feel warm and fuzzy all over. At least I think that’s the emotions from the game…



Snow Fight FREE Wintertime fun!

Shoot, you know I love a good snowball fight! Ain't had any of the neighborhood kids try for me in recent winters though. I can still hurl a mean iceball when the mood hits me.



Review: Profitville by 10tons Ltd

image

It’s the same old song and dance you’ve heard from movies like “You’ve Got Mail” to games like “Cake Mania”.  Corporate America is taking over and ruining the little mom and pop shops, or in this case a whole town.  While the premise is actually a bit more depressing than entertaining, Profitville still manages to make it loads of fun.  There’s no question that this game will test your sorting and judgment skills, and you’ll get so caught up in it that you’ll often wonder where your time has gone.  The real question is whether or not you have what it takes to put Profitville back on the map again.



Best iPhone Games | iPhone Life Magazine

When searching for the best iPhone games, you can get lost in companies propaganda.  Articles like Top Ten FavoriteiPhone Games, can help to alleviate the stress.  The following snippets from articles can help you to decide what kind of game is better suited for you.

"Stinger Games' newly launched Stinger FoosballLeague takes a game that's already a step removed from reality into a truly virtual environment - topping as one of the best iPhone games.  Foosball, of course, is the table version of football or soccer.  With Stinger Foosball League, the field that was crammed into a table in a pub is now in your iOS device.  The premise sounds okay, but the execution is way cooler than it sounds.  That's because Stinger Foosball League is actually, well, cooler than actual foosball.  First of all, the 3D graphics and game physics are right on, putting this game at the forefront of console-style graphics on iOS.  Second of all, the view when playing real life foosball is… usually not that awesome. I'm sure there are people with foosball tables that are tricked out, but for most of us, they're usually a dingy affair.  But Stinger Foosball League hasn't been sitting in your uncle's basement for the past forty years.  Kick-ass flying cameras show off how much action there really is in a game known for being low-tech. And just to make it even more trippy, the ball leaves behind a golden light tail, kind of a comet-effect."

"The Universe of SPIRIT FORCE was inspired from the Japanese Samurai-era.  Discover an epic story giving you a social experience where players fight with monsters and collect Spirit Cards in order to save the world.  It places a core emphasis on player vs. player combat.  The player begins his journey as a member of the SPIRIT FORCE.  Battle with other players or clear the mission to get great treasure and rare card. Use crafting skills with the collected treasures in order to summon new Spirits.  Players can team up with friends and cooperate each other to fight against boss, unlock new rewards and new stages.  The most immersive and massively multiplayer online card game ever!"
