The App Store is just about ready to (metaphorically) burst under the weight of all the nearly identical puzzle games it's been constantly barraged with. As a result, it's always refreshing to see a game that offers something new and interesting to restore our faith in the genre; Burning Bubbles Lab is one such game.
I don’t know if you ever run into this problem or not, but due to the sheer volume of games I go through, it often takes me a while to play many of the games I own. Then when I finally do, I sometimes think to myself “wow, I wish I would have played this game sooner”. If you haven’t guessed yet, Push Panic is one of those games. The concept is simple, yet it’s a fresh take on the matching genre that really sets a new standard for this type of game. Add to that four different game play modes, social network integration and a snazzy appearance and you have a causal gaming experience that no one should miss.
Just released on the App store, Highway King, a new time management game that puts you in charge of a trucking outfit! Developed by a team of university students, the game requires you to manage and vector a fleet of big rigs safely to their destinations. Get it on the App store here, and look for my review coming soon! Read on for more game play info from the developer...
Some of the more jaded iPhone application critics (of which at times I claim to be one of these) complain that there are no new, truly creative interactive experiences on the iPhone anymore. With literally hundreds of thousands of applications to choose from in the App Store, hasn't every pixel pushing design already been manifested? Strange Rain answers those critics with a resounding 'No' thanks to its torrent of creativity and captivating, imaginative gameplay.
Pocket God, I am T-Pain and Angry Birds have taken the app world by storm, and I guess it was only inevitable that the real world would want their own versions.
Pocket God now has models
of their characters available for purchase. You can act out your own scenes of destruction (or benevolence) as you see fit, or just display them in a glass case, the way your grandmother displayed Hummel figurines!
Following Nate’s review of game app Balloonia on 10 December 2010, my kids tried the same pipe strategy game and liked it. Pipe strategy games have a long pedigree in hand-helds and Balloonia is among the first to have ported it nicely to the Iphone/Ipod platform.
It seems we live in a world where highly skilled assassins have taken a dislike to the four basic food groups. Paper Ninja takes the novel approach to the whole “slice objects” idea and actually gives you ninjas to swipe at… well, sort of. The game is cute, it is challenging, and best of all you can’t get any paper cuts. I have a couple of niggles with it, but overall I’ve found the game quite fun to play.
Most games these days that toss things in the air at you expect you to slice and dice them. The Balls takes a different approach to the subject, and as a result stands out nicely from the crowd. It’s kind of like Hacky Sack on steroids, and it’s definitely the sort of balancing act most of us would only attempt electronically. Thankfully, though, the end result is a fun game that doesn’t involve ninjas or samurais, fruit or vegetables, yet provides a similar sort of satisfaction.
I’ve been playing electronic games for a long time, and one of the best genres since I can remember has always been the platform game. Sure they’ve evolved greatly over the years just like any other type of game, but the basic premise has always been “start at point A – run, jump and do whatever to get to point B – collect things and bop bad guys in the head along the way”. Pixeline And The Jungle Treasure exemplifies this tried and true formula. The truth is that it adds nothing new to the genre, and actually hearkens back to the simpler days of platform gaming in a lot of ways. Still, I’ve quite enjoyed it thus far, and hope we see more of cute little Pixeline in the future.
