Wizards The Magcial Concert on iOS to be released 30th January

Wizards The Magical Concert
is Pixel Crusaders firework exploding rhythm-action game about a young wizard attempting to conduct a perfect firework show. Exploding the fireworks at the right time will cause them to explode properly, if the timing is off, then they will fizzle out. Star coins can be earned with good performances, which can then be spent on upgrades in the shop. Upgrades allow further gameplay such as swiping and instant detonation of fireworks. There are secrets to be found and achievements to earn, and perhaps all is not as it seems at first glance.

The Stratus Game Controller Debuts in Apple Store, 20% Off

image

It was just last week that I wrote a review of the Stratus MFi Bluetooth game controller. This game controller is one of three on the market at this time, and in my opinion it's the best of them. Now I've got some great news for anyone who either just purchased one, or was about to.



Pet Zoometery: Where Animals Are Dying To Get In

image

I feel I should state from the beginning that I am not a fan of “free-to-play” games (F2P) that are driven by in-app purchases (IAP). Some day I might just write an article about that, but for now let’s just say that I don’t really like the concept of continually paying for one game (I’m not a fan of massively multi-player online games [MMOs] for the same reason). Anyway, despite those feelings I decided to spend some time with Pet Zoometery, and while there are some features about the game that I do enjoy, in the end it feels just like any other F2P: it’s fun for a while, but ultimately gets tedious and somewhat stale.

First Impressions: Introducing the New Stratus MFi-Certified Game Controller

image

The new SteelSeries Stratus game controller ($99.99) is available to pre-order now and the website promises the controller will ship within 30 days. I've been working with the SteelSeries game controller a lot lately, and I have to say, besides the fact that it's the only wireless (Bluetooth) game controller on the market, it's ergonomic and it handles well. The sensitivity is finely tweaked making the controller quick and responsive, without much glitchiness or lag.

Infinity-Gate: Update Erases Thousands of Infinity Blade III Saved Games!

image

Over the years I've had a strong love/hate relationship with the Infinity Blade series. It has been by turns, a highly rewarding, premium game experience and also a very disappointing one. My issues with the IB series go back to my experience with the very first Infinity Blade, which at one point refused to even open (using an iPhone 4 and iPad 2 at the time) for over six months (in fact, I was never able to resolve that issue before I moved on to IB II), to the present day’s scandal. The game series, for all of its amazing gameplay, strong storyline, and stellar graphics, seems to have been plagued with consistently recurring development problems, bugs, and glitches. But this latest fiasco takes the cake...
