The more I play mobile games, the more I realize that sometimes simpler is better. I don’t mean a game that’s easy, mind you, but a game that doesn’t have a lot of options or settings or menus to mess with. Greedy Bankers is one such game, and it’s very easy to get lost in once you get started. It’s also one of those games that will often have you gritting your teeth down to the very last second… assuming, of course, you make the last second match to move on to the next level.
Released earlier this month, Nikki Holiday and the Pirate Star is yet another point-and-click adventure game for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Available for only one dollar, the application takes you through the few days leading up to main character, Nikki's, fame as a singing celebrity. There are currently a whole bunch of similar titles able to be purchased on the App Store, but this certainly takes the cake.
Despite the popularity of other games soaring high, I have to say that Nikki and the Pirate Star was undoubtedly the most amount of fun I've had with point-and-click games as such. I'm not a huge puzzle buff nor am I a fan of such titles, but this truly won over my free time over the past few days.
I love old school pinball games. There’s just something about these vintage games that brings you back to your youth-even if you are way too young to remember these (and I’m including myself in those ranks).
Rollover contains that iconic bit of the freestanding gaming, the eternally beloved shiny metal ball. Like any good game though, Rollover takes the best of what we loved before and adapts it to the current technology-the iPhone. The objective of rollover is to get past blocks and other objects while keeping the ball on the board and avoiding those pesky holes. All right, so this part isn’t new, but you get the idea.
I don't know about any of you guys, but one of my childhood dreams was to live on a floating island in the sky. Well JCE must have read my mind or something, because now there is a new game on iOS that lets you do just that.
Bobtan studio had a hit on its hands when it released Q Pang, a strikingly strange and amusing take on the traditional alien invasion standoff game type. Developers have gone above and beyond with this little beauty, giving Q Pang even more material to satisfy current and potential fans of the game.
Every so often, a game comes with a simple premise that keeps casual iOS gamers engaged for hours on end. Reckless Getaway is just such a game. What makes it so addictive? Read on to find out.
With companies like G5 Entertainment and Big Fish Games churning out quality hidden object games one after another, the market is quickly getting rather saturated. This means that the little guy has to do that much more to make their game stick out from the crowd. While Pirate Mysteries is certainly no eye sore, it doesn’t do a whole lot to distinguish itself in a more positive direction either. Still, amusing dialog and several variations of object seeking help the game to be a fun and solid, if not overly original, title.
Bricks Buster is a fun and challenging brick-breaking game for the iPhone. The game offers a nice variation of levels -- 20 in total so far-- with various challenges to overcome. There are even power-ups for you to grab during levels. For instance one power-up may add additional balls to your arsenal and this will eliminate bricks faster.
The bricks come in blue or red and I haven't notice a difference in the color variations. The goal of each level is to clear the walls of all bricks by shooting balls at them. If the ball escapes the paddle you are controlling, then you lose a life.
When UPS just won’t do, apparently the way to deliver packages is via a platform with little jet engines in it. Silly premise aside, Kona’s Crate is an interesting physics game that takes the lunar lander concept to the extreme. The game has 60 levels and the three star, two tier scoring system is sure to keep most patient folks busy for a while, but the control scheme is somewhat frustrating and the time to beat for three stars often feels a bit outlandish. While at first I found myself willing to try and fight for that third star or a “no bump” run, it eventually got to the point where I just wanted to finish a level and move on to the next.
In my humble opinion the term “adventure game” has become too broad these days. I see some sites even try to classify an FPS as an adventure game. To me it is games like the King’s Quest series from Sierra or Zork from Infocom that defines the adventure game genre. Games that require you to really explore your surroundings, solve many puzzles, and quite often interact with dozens of non-player characters in more than just a “pardon me while I shoot you” capacity. Cryptic Keep certainly strives for the feel of the classics, though the distinct lack of NPCs and very little story save snippets at the beginning and the end make it feel more like Myst than a true adventure game. Still, I appreciate that developers are trying to reinvigorate the genre, and it was fun while it lasted.
