Canada seems to be the test bed for big developers. As you all know, Supercell launched Boom Beach in Canada and now South Korean gaming giant, Actoz Soft, has also followed suit with In a Space.



Flappy Bird: The Short Life of the World’s Biggest Little Superstar

image

In July of 2012, an independent game developer named Dong Nguyen from Vietnam, inspired by what could only be the same angelic muses that visited Poe and Hemingway during their creative slumbers, decided on a whim to create a game consisting of birds smashing into green plumbing.

In all seriousness, the brilliant mind behind the indie craze Flappy Bird created a game similar to others he designed within his .GEARS game development team: a repetitive and difficult throwback to 8-bit retro console games popular in Japan. As someone still addicted to Super Hexagon, VVVVV, and Super Meat Boy, I can attest that with Flappy Bird Nguyen hit a home run out of the park.



Lost Echo: Engaging Story But Needs More Interaction

image

When I first played Lost Echo ($2.99) I got to the trigger event that causes everything else to unfold and while the game seemed like it had a lot of potential it didn’t really hook me. Now that I’ve revisited the game several months later I’ve realized that it’s actually a really interesting interactive story. Much like a chapter of the Twilight Zone mythos, this sci-fi romp manages to provide more adult-oriented themes à la Cognition: Episode 1 or Yesterday. I think it has a lot to offer adventure game fans, though it might not be as “hands on” as one might like.

The data that would normally take scientists hours to analyze can now be compiled by simply playing the game.

Flappy Bird Review: A Game You'll Hate to Love

Whether it's a small iOS game or full-fledged RPG, there is just something appealing about gaming. In the simplest of games, it might only take one minute to finish what was just started. Flappy Bird (free), the latest hit iOS game, will take a minute of your time—if you're good.



FINAL FANTASY WITH GOLF? DUNGEONS & GOLF WORLD

FINAL FANTASY WITH GOLF? DUNGEONS & GOLF WORLD

INTERESTING. A gameplay screen which my old Japanese friend showed me was quite familiar, even though I had never played the game before. Was it some kind of fantasy-based MMO? Surprisingly he said it was a popular ‘golf’ game in Japan.

 

A GOLF GAME? I had played some mobile-based golf games such as 'Golf Star' and 'Let's Golf', but this one didn't look like a golf game at all. (I will talk about this later.) I made some search in Google and found out something more interesting.
