Review: Fibble HD by Crytek

image

It’s the same old story – alien ship gets hit, and despite their always advanced technology they end up helplessly careening into the earth.  Much like another physics puzzler called Marbians you end up in a suburban home and find out that humans are much bigger than you are.  You must find all your friends and ultimately flee your gigantic surroundings.  The atmosphere is cute but the levels can be quite challenging, so feel free to take the game for a spin even if you are a “macho” adult.  So far I haven’t been disappointed.

Considering how many apps are available in the Apple app store, not to mention how many are actually on my iPhone (close to 300), it's a bit daunting of a task to come up with only 10 apps to recommend here and now! There are simply so many amazing and award-winning apps out there and each is suited to an individual uniquely.



What I played this week - Fibble and SugarSync!

image

Fibble HD is a 3D physics/puzzle game that is a beauty to behold on the iPad, but before I give my review, I have to do a mini-review of the awesomely redesigned SugarSync (which is not a game--sorry about that). The old version of SS (a cloud file syncing app--reviewed here), was not well suited to iPad, but the coders have fixed that in their recent upgrade! So before I tell you how great Fibble is, I want to tell you how great SugarSync has become...


Violet Storm App Review

image

Violet storm is a game which has the same general concept as the ‘Asteroids’ game from years ago.  Flying through space while shooting at different things which if you don’t kill them they will cause damage.  This is much more complex than the original asteroids game though.  First, there are many different types of enemies including asteroids but also enemies which will attack you and pursue you. 

During the game you collect different ‘power ups’ which make your weapons more powerful or give you additional life or shielding.  As you progress through the progressively more difficult waves you’ll be running into more and more complex enemies which will not only attempt to crash into you but also attack you with weapons of their own. 



Review: Sheep In The Sky by Stimulus Response Games

image

Sheep In The Sky is the first outing from Stimulus Response Games, and if this is any indication of their capabilities I think we’re in for some good things ahead.  It’s a deceptively basic puzzle game, where the object is to get the sheep to the gate found somewhere on each level.  The graphics are cute, giving it even more of an air of simplicity.  You’ll soon find, however, that some of the levels will take more than a few seconds of thought to conquer.  The game sucks you in early and keeps you glued even when you’re about ready to toss your device against a wall because a level seems unsolvable.



Apple Inc. The Ultimate Social Media Experiment

While I will be the first to acknowledge the amazing technological achievements of Apple's line is computing products, I must say, more than any technological accomplishment, Apple's phenomenal success rests in large part upon the amazing sociological phenomena it has so meticulously and intentionally generated, over decades of persistent effort.

 



CookieCoo Dancing Star: Education, Entertainment, Blessed Distraction

CookieCoo Dancing Star from ThinkCube is one of those little blessings parents have come to count on in a digital age. To count on and feel good about.  Because not only have the developers mastered what it takes to keep children occupied for more than fifteen seconds, it’s not just empty entertainment.



iPhone Reviews | iPhone Life Magazine

We have several iPhone reviews.  Articles like, iPhone Goes 3G,is one of many that gives you a more in depth look at Apple's products. Here are several iPhone reviews on past and current models.

"On July 11th, 2008, Apple and AT&T stores started selling the iPhone 3G, and over one million consumers bought one in the first three days, making this the hottest smart phone launch ever.  The 3G brings speed,assisted GPS, and a new low price to Apple's smart phone platform. And while the hardware has definitely been improved, it's the OS 2.0 and software suite that is truly revolutionary."

In iPhone 3G S and OS 3.0, we take a first look at the new 3G S. Resting in your hand, it looks pretty much like the 3G, but in this case, looks are deceiving. The iPhone 3G S sports a faster processor, better battery life, a 3 megapixel camera, enhanced 3D graphics, and a variety of other improvements.  Best of all, it's claimed to be twice as fast as the 3G.

We also reviewed the new OS 3.0 and software suite.  Apple added some nice features, including Cut & Paste capability, enhanced A2DPBluetooth that supports stereo headsets, an upgrade of SMS to full Multi MediaServices, improved search feature, landscape keyboard in Mail and other apps,and additional enhancements to Calendar, Contacts, iPod, and Safari.  Apple also added a new native app to the application suite.  VoiceMemo lets you capture and edit short audio recordings and e-mail or SMS them toa friend.

iPhone reviews: Apple began selling an unlocked versionof the iPhone 4S (iPhone Life Article Here). That means that you can use it with any carrier, andyou don't need to sign a contract.  Unlocked phones are a big advantage for frequent travelers. GSM is the most common standard abroad,and the whole cell phone business model is typically much different in other countries. No contracts, no subsidized phones. You simply buy a SIM card and put it in your phone. You can even buy SIM cards at kiosks in airports and on the street.
