Stinger Games’ newly launched Stinger Foosball League takes a game that’s already a step removed from reality into a truly virtual environment. 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.
Flag Wars is an extremely strategic game that requires focus, attention, and detailed knowledge of the rules to be successful. But, for those who enjoy a challenge; this app can definitely fulfill that need. Luckily, the moment that you are brought to its homepage; you are given the option to start a new game, view the leader board, and of course learn how to play. Even though the game is comparable to other games on the market; it is still highly recommended to read the instructions prior to starting a game. Otherwise, it’s a guarantee that you’ll be lost. The instructions are simple by matching picture with definition; so understanding it is the easy part. Remembering and applying is where it gets a little difficult.

This is a remake of a classic Amiga game called Nibby Nibble. The visuals in iNibby Nibble are more refined than the classic version as there are more curved surfaces rather than levels made up of square grids (for the outer walls). The level backgrounds in iNibby Nibble don't really move and seem pre-rendered.

There are games, and then there are "Games". Games so cool and immersive, you wish they were actually in some sidereal universe you could visit (with game cheats, unlimited shields and heavy weapons of course). When I first experienced Another World, I instantly put it in that category. From the opening action sequences that set up the very cool back-story (could be a movie), to the point you crawl out of the water on Another World - 20th Anniversary (and see that thing on the cliff watching you) you feel creeped out... Tip to new game developers: This how to create a unique and compelling adventure game.
These days, physics games seem to be mainly of two varieties: destroy everything in sight or collect stars and candy. From that perspective Sprinkle is a breath of fresh air, because your goal is to help a bunch of cute (and often annoying) aliens put out a bunch of fires that are going to devastate their village. It even has different game mechanics than what we’re used to in the typical physics game. My biggest problem with the game is that the difficulty of some of the levels is insane, and your progress in the game can completely stop just because you can’t pass a particular level. To me physics games should be casual fun, and that’s hard to have when it takes a ridiculous amount of tries to pass a level.
I am definitely a fan of ports of older games, because they usually allow me to replay a game I really enjoyed from my past or experience a game that I never got the opportunity to try the first time around. Another World is slightly different, though, because other than knowing that it existed I had never played it nor did I know enough about it to really be interested in playing it. Now that I’ve spent some time with it, however, I realize that I missed out on something pretty special by letting this one pass by. I’m just glad I’ve gotten the chance to make amends on that faux pas.
