What I Played this Week - Another World!

image

There are games, and then there are "Games". Games so cool and immersive, you wish they were actually in some sidereal universe you could visit (with game cheats, unlimited shields and heavy weapons of course). When I first experienced Another World, I instantly put it in that category. From the opening action sequences that set up the very cool back-story (could be a movie), to the point you crawl out of the water on Another World - 20th Anniversary (and see that thing on the cliff watching you) you feel creeped out... Tip to new game developers: This how to create a unique and compelling adventure game.

Review - iHome iW1 Wireless Speaker System

image

The iW1 from iHome is a superb AirPlay compatible wireless speaker. I was the first person to get a review unit, so more or less the first guinea pig user. Consequently, I had some guinea pig type problems with it, but with help from the folks at iHome, was able to get it working quite well. It is arguably the best combination of features I have yet seen in a portable speaker system.



Another World available on App store!

image

Not trying to steal Eric Pankoke's thunder on this, but am also a big AW fan from way back, and figured we should get the word out that you can now get this fabulous game (see Eric's preview at link above, and reviews forthcoming from both of us). Go here on the app store ($4.99 currently), or read on for the full PR scoop and video trailer...



What I Played this Week - Magic Defenders

image

Magic Defenders, a tower defense challenge for iPad and iPhone that requires you to master a mix of magic weapons to keep the invading orcs out. Other than pleasing animations, the game is pretty standard TD--not that it isn't still fun to flatten a bunch of orcs with a bombardment of lightning (especially the ones riding the green walruses, if that's what they are).



SoundPrism 2.3 Update - Interconnect with NLog!

Bracketron iTilt and Style-iT review

image

Two accessories that you can't do without if you have an iPad, or really any tablet: A keyboard and a stand (at least in the case of the iPad 1G). The 2G has a handy cover that serves as an ok prop, but a good sturdy stand is more important than you realize. If I was to add anything else to the short list, it would probably have to include a stylus (since without jailbreaking, you can't use a mouse with iOS). Bracketron happens to have both a stand and stylus (which is also a pen) that are perfect for the job!



What I am playing this week - rRootage Online and Magic Defenders!

image

Working on a couple of reviews, but wanted to get the word around about two newer titles am trying out this week and also admit to playing SlotZ Racer for more hours than I should have. rRootage Online HD is a top-down, scrolling shooter port of a game originally from legendary programmer Kenta Cho. "Shoot-N-Squirm" from a hail of bullets might be an apt description. Magic Defenders is yet another Tower Defense, but with a wizard manning the watch...
