I love adventure games, as it was probably the first genre I got hooked on when I started playing computer games. As the genre goes it’s always nice to see an original IP pop up in the App Store, so I was pretty excited when I ran across The Passenger. After playing and finishing it, however, I’m not quite sure how I feel about it. There are certainly some nice points to the game, but ultimately it felt too basic and more disappointedly, way too short. I’d still be more than happy to see a sequel, but the game will need a lot more meat to produce I viable franchise.
If you've been looking for an app that will allow you to keep your media hidden from spying eyes; then MediaSafe is the app for you. It serves as your personal safe where you can hold photos, videos, contacts, and notes that are blocked behind a finger slide code. It is your personal combination that will eventually allow access, but will lock up if someone else tries and continuously gets it wrong.
Ninja Ponk, formerly Ninja Pong (which, if you ask me, was a better name), is a quirky game that has you bouncing ninjas across gaps in various landscapes with the help of a breakout-style paddle. As with many of the games I’ve enjoyed lately, the mechanics are dead simple, but to do well in the game requires a lot of focus and some pretty good coordination. This game will probably serve more as something to fill time than as something you spend hours at a time on, but oh, what great filler it is!
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.
