Samurai Tale is a simple combat game, and it had the potential to be rather interesting, especially if you’re looking for something with fighting that doesn’t have the complexities of a Street Fighter type game. Unfortunately, there are enough little things wrong with it that the game becomes somewhat mediocre as a whole, and given the number of quality games available on the App Store, that’s not a good thing. I would love to see some more work put into this to help it rise above its current level, because I’m one of those that really likes a casual fighter from time to time.
There’s something about an underwater setting that promotes peace and tranquility – unless, of course, you’re a fish with a vengeance and can blow killer bubbles. In Treasure Reef you play Herby, a fish trying to find the legendary treasure of Reef Island. Unfortunately there are these nasty creatures called Creeps that will do whatever they can to make sure you don’t get that treasure. You have 28 levels to prove them wrong and find out what the legend is.
Playing games on my iOS devices is always very entertaining, but if it is something that can make me think hen it is really exciting. One such game is Chillingham Manor by Synqua Games- Chillingham Manor is a well-designed puzzle game that is easy to play while on the go.
This game far exceeded my expectations on the first look. After seeing the screenshots and icons I thought the game might come under the action category involving zombies and ghosts. But after exploring the game I discovered it was actually a puzzle game with a fancy design and interface. There are zombies, ghosts, bats and much more on the screens makes the game feel haunted, but the game play is still just a puzzle game.
As I’ve grown to have less time for playing games, I’ve come to appreciate the simpler things in entertainment. For example, I’m just as content playing a quick dungeon crawler like Sword Of Fargoal now as I was playing a sprawling RPG like Might & Magic when I was in high school. However, despite the fact that I’ve seen on many occasions where simple can be fun, simple doesn’t always mean fun. Sadly, Finger Runner is the perfect example of this. I think the concept is sound, but the execution is frustrating more than anything.
Stardunk Gold version (no ads--normally $1.99) went free on Thursday, and has apparently stayed that way (possibly through the weekend), so go grab it while it lasts. The Space Jam-esque MMO game has gone through several noteworthy upgrades and improvements of late, and the developer is keen on getting it out there, so what are you waiting for...??? It's FREE!
All you fútbol fans get ready for a slamming 3D soccer experience! FTS will be kicked into the App Store tomorrow. The game features realistic 3D graphics, 250 teams, head-to-head wireless play modes and much more. Search the App store for it May 4, 2011 (pricing/availability to be announced). Read on for press release excerpts... and more screen shots...
Monster Trouble is 3D Tower Defense fun, and make no mistake, this game will suck you into endless hours of grinding gameplay. If you like TD games already, and looking for one with a medieval theme, high-quality rendering and effects, and a bit of campy humor, then this is definitely your game.
I had never even heard of Pachinko until Peggle arrived on the iPhone, and now it seems like there are several different variants of the game on the App Store, most of them trying to disguise the fact that they are actually a Pachinko variant. One of the latest such variants is Dog Pile, an interesting combination of Pachinko and Match 3, of all things. Interestingly enough, it is probably one of my favorite versions so far. Of course it doesn’t hurt that I’m a huge fan of match 3 games, and it’s also a bonus that the dogs are so cute!
I was just thinking of the dominance in the app store by the games where little birds play a major role. Of course best of them Angry Birds and Tiny wings, which are still on the top. When guys from Weeworld asked me to have a look at their recent work Cweeture Jump, I was into it immediately because of the interest in playing such funny bird ruling games.
Haven't done this in awhile, so maybe I should call this "What I played this quarter!". I had to post up on JetCar Stunts though, since it's the latest game I can't stop playing (it's not a new title--released in 2009). Crazy addictive time killer is what it should be called!. Featured in iTunes essential games, you can grab it here at $1.99. Expansion course packs also available. The concept is to race through 3D high-flying aerial stunt courses with your rocket powered jet car (who wouldn't want one of those)... More app news follows...
