Twitter, Facebook, and the like are all decent ways to stay in touch with people you already know about, but Roamz has solved a problem you might not have known you had. What happens when you're traveling? What if there are time-sensitive events happening near you, but you don't follow those related social networking accounts?
It’s getting harder and harder to come up with original ideas for Match 3 games, but the Treasures Of Montezuma has a nice little twist with the concept of idols that are activated when you match that idol’s color on the playing board twice in a row. I remember getting really addicted to the first installment once I figured out how the idols actually worked. For some reason I missed out on part 2, but now I’ve got Treasures Of Montezuma 3 on my iPad, the addiction is back, and this could quite possibly be the best installment in the series yet.
Mike V: Skateboard Party HD is a skateboard game for the iPhone and iPad with intense visuals and enticing gameplay.
The game starts off by allowing you to customize nearly every aspect of your avatar, from the classic to the current Mike V to other people. You are capable of customizing the skateboard, wheels, axles, and even the shoes the avatar wears. All of the different customizations can be unlocked during gameplay.
I love zombie blasters, but there are enough of them out on the App Store that you might be wondering why I’m writing about one that’s over a year old. Well, despite the fact that there have been some really slick alternatives released since this one came out back in November of 2010, Zombie Crisis 3D is still quite enjoyable. In fact, I’d wager to say that it is probably the best of the series discounting Prologue, which really could have been just a couple of extra episodes tacked on to the original. There’s just one small “feature” that I believe is new that’s really getting on my nerves…
Nukes is a fairly typical game in which you have to have careful timing to hit a moving object. The layout has you controlling one 'world' at the bottom of the screen and than another world at the top. When it is your turn to fire a nuke the enemy world at the top of the screen is spinning either clockwise or counter clockwise and you have to hit 'launch' to shoot your missal at one of the cities on the other world. If you hit the city it removes one of the 'lives' of the enemy. You get one shot, then the enemy gets one shot.
Murder detective is an interesting detective type game with quite an extensive story line. The game play is similar to old school text based games but it has images to go with it and simple tap to choose your options. The story seems a little bit to common in that a drunk cop with family problems has to solve a murder, but I suppose it is done so often because it works well. The story line seems quite extensive, I've played for a couple hours now and it still seems to have quite a bit to go.
So far the iOS platform has severed my adventure gaming needs well in terms of how the device can handle such games, yet while it’s not unheard of it’s still uncommon to find anything original in this department. Thankfully there are a few developers who like to buck the trends, however, and as a result we get cool offerings like The Secret Of Chateau De Moreau. Now I’ll warn you that the game often feels like a soap opera – albeit an interesting one – but if you look past that facet you’ll discover, murder, mystery, romance and a host of interesting characters. I also like how the game strays from the normal adventure game convention when it comes to moving from room to room.

I feel like I should begin this review with a rhyme, but alas I have nothing so some other time. Anyway, I typically don’t stray far from games when it comes to writing reviews, because that’s what I have the most experience with. However, when I was presented with the opportunity to review this particular omBook from Oceanhouse Media I was intrigued enough to give it a try. I’m glad I did. The Bippolo Seed and other Lost Tales is not only an entertaining read (or listen, depending on tastes), but it’s actually given me a reason to sit down and spend “iPad time” with my son, whereas usually my endeavors into the iOS world are a solo effort.
