The real "trick" that JK Rowling was able to perform was to print money. The books, movies, merchandise, and theme park have all taken a good chunk of my income. But I am okay with that. At least I'm supporting a literary endeavor as my oldest daughter reads as fast as Ms. Rowling can write them, if not faster.
This is a few days late, but better late than never. SEGA has released their first MMO (Massive Multiplayer Online) game, which is a first for them in 2 categories. It's also their first free-to-play title, though you can enhance your play through in app purchases. Kingdom Conquest looks to be an adventure style game, and can be downloaded from the App store here.
From the makers of iQuarium comes the popular app called Let's Create! Pottery. You can grab this hot list game in the app store for free (the Lite version), so go fire up that kiln!
I tend to like tank games, because at a base level they all tend to involve blowing things up. Tank Raider is no exception, except it throws the convention of collecting gems into the mix. In theory that should make the game more fun, but it tends to make it more tedious instead. Add to that controls that aren’t real conducive to fast action, and what could be a nice change from the run of the mill tank game feels like a bit of a mess instead. It’s certainly not a terrible mess, but it doesn’t stand out like it could, either.
There are certain genres that seem to remain fun even though each new game in the genre isn’t necessarily that different from the last. Time management games are one such anomaly, and so to, it seems, are “marble poppers”. Granted there have been some that weren’t quite as engaging as others, but there’s something about the whole concept of trying to whittle away a string of objects before it reaches its destination that’s simple yet challenging, and ultimately enjoyable. Aqua Pearls is no exception to this rule, and what sets it apart from many of the others I’ve played are some new game modes as well as the general atmosphere of the game.
I have played some offbeat games in my day, but Blork has to take the prize as one of the oddest, but also amongst the coolest (at least in terms of concept)! Not over the top on steroids cool, maybe, but understated cool at least! It's currently free in the App Store, so won't cost you a thing to experiment a bit if you want to try something a little different.
So far I’ve been pretty lucky with hidden object games on the iPhone. Most of them have had something different to offer from all the others. Of course I realize that’s because the genre hasn’t been oversaturated like certain other ones, but I’ll take it while I can get it. Mystery Of The Crystal Portal is no exception to the rule. In fact, in some ways this is one of the most original hidden object games I’ve played, iPhone or otherwise. It’s not without its shortcomings, but its strengths keep me coming back for more.
Gun Bros is now available on the App store... Looks like another awesome scroller/shooter game for the review queue. Reminds me of one of my current favs called BloodNGuns, which my daughter clued me in on.
Tap Disc is a a semi-quirky tap game featuring the challenge of rounding up bouncing and flying disks, but with the added twist of having to time and place your taps at just the right moment and screen spot. I warn would-be tappers that this game is not easy to master quickly (IMO), but presents unique, tap-elicious gameplay that is both pleasing to the eye, and engaging enough to keep you coming back for more. Read on for the full review...
Tilt to Live recently got an update that includes Game Center support and Retina-worthy graphics. You can grab the game (if you aren't already an addict) here. To learn more about this addictive and award winning game, see my Top App picks article here... I am loving the sharper game screens even as I write this. Shoot, no new power-ups though..! Well, it's rumored there might be another present in time for X-mas!
