Think you’ve got what it takes to handle the pressure cooker environment of a football manager?

Well you’re in luck, as Actoz Soft have just released One For Eleven, a Free-to-Play football management game for iOS and Android devices. Giving you the chance to manage some of the biggest names in the sport, you pick the tactics, formation, and line-ups for matches – and then have to watch your assembled squad fares against a range of opposition. Nail biting is optional. There are two ways to watch matches too, with Live Broadcast mode allowing you to get a top-down view of the field and all the players on it. Text Broadcast mode is the other less flashy method, updating you on matches through text alone.

So if you want to see if you’ve got what it takes in the managerial hotseat you can get One For Eleven from the App Store or Google Play for free, right now.

Don’t forget to visit the One For Eleven website, or the game’s Facebook page for more details though.

The minute I began playing Darklings, I had a lot of questions. What is a Darkling? Where is my character and what on earth is going on? Out of all the iPad games I’ve enjoyed, this was definitely one of the strangest. That isn’t, of course, to suggest that it’s bad – in fact, I found the game surprisingly intuitive once I’d figured out more about the strange character at the bottom of the screen. This $0.99 iPhone/iPad game was created by MildMania, and is definitely on par with dark and quirky games like Limbo. When you load the app, you find yourself in control of a small character called a Lum, and it’s your goal to save him from surrounding monsters that have come to attack. Your character exists in a lonely looking universe where it’s constantly night time, and you’re surrounded by endless models.Adding to the mystery and spooky element of the game is the soundtrack. I immediately noticed the audio of the game when loading, and enjoyed it from the very beginning. Despite the initial confusion over the character and the purpose of the game, the soundtrack was superb and I quickly became engrossed in the story. Your ghostly little character, or ‘Lum’ needs to use his powers to get rid of all the evil Darklings. The dark characters surround your Lum and must be fought off using magical powers.

 

As you progress through the game, you can also play with new Lums that each has different powers. With your character, your ultimate aim is to survive, reaching new levels and bosses as you progress. The storyline may well be simple, but it’s definitely fun. I was immediately engrossed, not only because I love survival games, but also because I have never seen gameplay like this before. In order to fight off the Darklings, your Lum must replicate the shapes on the heads of each of the evil Darkling characters. I should say, rather, that it is the player that has to replicate the shapes. Here you will find no directional arrows, you won’t navigate through a landscape like a traditional game either – you will have just one role. You will use your finger as if it were a pencil, and trace the shape on the screen, which sees your Lum jump into the character of the related Darkling. You’ll also see stars appearing around your character throughout the game. It’s important that you collect the stars with your finger and draw a line to your Lum. This increases the amount of time you have on the game, and collecting five big stars can give you helpful little extras! If you run out though, as always with inexpensive games, you can purchase more for a small fee from the shop. You can also share your results with your Twitter followers and Facebook friends for new stars.

While it’s definitely intuitive and enjoyable, it’s not the most comfortable way to play the game. If you’re lucky enough to have the current iPad Air, or perhaps even the iPad Mini, you’ll probably fine. If you have an older generation iPad however, then you’ll probably find the game uncomfortable, owing to the extra weight. Unless you’re ambidextrous, you’ll have to keep your iPad in one hand while you draw away with the other – that can be quite tiring after spending some time on the game! I must also be honest about the fights with bosses. While generally the gameplay feels seamless and smooth, it begins to lag a little bit when you’re fighting the bigger Darklings. You’ll probably find yourself drawing your patterns numerous times over before anything registers, which can be quite annoying when you’re counting on a win to progress!

All in all though, I have to rate Darklings quite highly. It’s definitely a welcome new addition to the App Store, and one of the most intuitive games I’ve played in a while. The gameplay is flowing, the soundtrack very nice and visuals are superb. The levels seem endless, you can play different characters and you can enjoy an impressive range of challenges. It’s well worth the small fee of $0.99!

It is that day where everyone is out buying the latest trending gadgets, clothes, and other Christmas gifts for their loved ones. However, I have opted to stay at home this Black Friday and enjoy some of the online deals that are already hitting the marketplace today before Cyber Monday even arrives. Since Black Friday hit early, I suppose some other big brands are also jumping in early to offer great deals online on some of the apps in iTunes. Namely, the one I am really raving about is the Polaris Office app for iPad or the iPhone.

As someone who often travels and/or does speaking engagements, I don’t always have access to Microsoft Office from my laptop. Instead, I often have out my iPhone or iPad reviewing some of the notes I have made. The unfortunate part is that there are times I would like to edit my notes or make changes to some of the things I am writing on. The downside of using the iPad or iPhone has always been the inability to make those necessary changes. In fact, what you typically get is a picture-like image of a document. You can read it, but it’s often small print and never editable. With Polaris Office, they have made the impossible possible!

Not only can you make the necessary changes, but viewing the Microsoft Office documents is also much nicer. As noted above, a big issue was the readability of the documents themselves. The print was much too small, and when you zoom in, this required scrolling back and forth to read full length lines. The Polaris Office app now allows the documents to be viewable in a nice mobile format for quality viewing. It is the difference in viewing a website that is not mobile friendly versus one that is. It requires much less effort.

In addition, the ability to make necessary changes has greatly increased my productivity. I still enjoy my Microsoft Office. It is a piece of software I have used for years. I intend on continuing to use it because it is what I prefer over other document creation software available. Now, with this app, I see that at times making those necessary changes has become that much easier while I’m on the go. The ability to make changes to documents while on a plane or sitting in an airport without having to pull out my laptop is absolutely of great value.

Lastly, the format of the app itself has a really clean and simple design, which is my preference. The focus is on the ability to view the document, not the app itself which gives you maximum view of the documents. Too many app designers look out for the design of the app, but they do not necessarily think about the functionality of it. I think there is a good compromise here. The functionality is the primary focus and minimalist look of the app makes it accomplish what it has set out to do, viewing and editing your Microsoft Office products on an iPad or iPhone

Get it for $0.99 instead of $19.99 for a limited time only!
