3-pointsskillschallenge_pic1From the brains at Punch Entertainment comes part of the NBA’s All-Star Saturday Night… sort of… the 3-point shootout! You pick the player of your choice, and try to drain as many rainmakers as you can. No real need to learn any rules (just the controls), and you’re on you’re way to making it rain (3-pointers).

One of the much anticipated events of the NBA All-Star weekend is the 3-point shot competition. The event pits the best long-range shooters in the league in a frenzied competition to see who can sink the most 3-point baskets in under a minute. The winner of the tournament style competition claims the title as the 3-point king of the league. 3-Point Skills Challenge attempts to capture all that magic and shove it all into a nice little app for your iPhone/iTouch.

3-pointsskillschallenge_pic2The game developers were unable to get any licensing from the NBA, and so have created 60 players for you to choose from. They claim that each character from Airball Al to Trifecta Terell is based on an actual NBA player, but good luck trying to find any true resemblances. When going through the list of characters, you’re able to drill down on their specific information which includes their height, weight, 3pt %, FG %, years pro, and their rating. Once you’ve picked the shooter of your liking, it’s time to drain some 3’s!

3-pointsskillschallenge_pic3Like most 3-point shooting competitions, that aim is to sink as many 3-point baskets in an allotted amount of time. 25 basketballs are divided into 5 shooting areas (ball racks) outside the 3-point line. Each basket made counts 1 point towards a final score. In each of the 5 ball racks, the last ball of the rack (coloured red, white, and blue), is known as the “money ball” and is worth 2 points. The maximum amount of points you can possibly receive is 30. Not only do you have to sink shots, but you have to do so in 60 seconds.

3-pointsskillschallenge_pic4Game controls are extremely simple, in fact there’s only one button to touch during regular game play, the basketball located at the bottom right of the screen when the device is held on its side. Touch the basketball once to grab a ball from the rack, and then touch and hold the ball again to initiate a shot. It is this second touch that determines your shooting prowess. As the shooter begins his jump, he releases the basketball only when you’ve removed your finger from the basketball. The trick is to release your touch of the basketball as your shooter reaches the height of his vertical leap. Each character in the game differs in the height of their jump and the cadence of their 3-point shot. It’s up to the game player to learn and master their favourite players shooting technique. That being said, sometimes mastering your favourite shooters cadence is disrupted by lag, making it pretty much impossible to use your researched correct shooting rhythm.

The app offers various modes like quick play, exhibition, and tournament. All of which don’t really change the gameplay, but rather the amount of time you could potentially be playing for. There is also a practice mode to help fin tune your ballin’ skills. One of the clever things I wanted to point out is the developer’s use of advertising space throughout the arena to advertise their company and other games developed by them.

Smack Me in Review – Simon Says Grab Me http://www.touchmyapps.com/2009/03/31/smack-me-in-review-simon-says-grab-me/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2009/03/31/smack-me-in-review-simon-says-grab-me/#comments Tue, 31 Mar 2009 21:47:15 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=8160 When asked to do a review of Smack Me, based on the apps name my initial thought was, “I hope this isn’t one of those apps where some ladies breasts are wobbling around the screen!” Jumped into the App Store and was surprised to find the app icon had a picture of an 80’s style … Read more]]>

smackme_pic1When asked to do a review of Smack Me, based on the apps name my initial thought was, “I hope this isn’t one of those apps where some ladies breasts are wobbling around the screen!” Jumped into the App Store and was surprised to find the app icon had a picture of an 80’s style robot (okay fine, I was somewhat disappointed there wasn’t any wobbling involved). After booting up the app and giving it a go, boy, was I surprised! What I discovered filled me with nostalgia and put a very happy grin on my face.

smackme_pic2Smack Me loosely derives from the adolescent game of Simon Says where instructions are given and success depends on following the correct instructions. In the early 80’s, Milton Bradley released the widely successful handheld electronic game Simon. A big disc with four different coloured buttons, Simon players were asked to press the buttons in the same sequence that the device lit up the buttons. Success was achieved by continually repeating the correct sequence. In the late 90’s, Hasbro took the idea of Simon a step further and introduced the world to Bop It. Bop It was another handheld electronic game, but instead of pressing buttons like on its predecessor, the device had players perform other actions such as twist a crank, pull a handle, spin a wheel, press a button, or flick a switch. Bop It was successful because it was a game anyone could just pick up and play with a very small learning curve. The brains at FunMobility took the basic concepts of those successful handhelds and incorporated them with the iPhone/iTouch’s multi-touch screen and accelerometer and have created a true gem.

smackme_pic3 smackme_pic6

In Smack Me, players are asked to perform one of five commands: SMACK ME, PINCH ME, LIFT ME, SHAKE ME, or FREEZE ME. For the first few command requests, instructions are given on the screen (see above). The object is to successfully complete the command in the amount of time provided. As the game progresses and the levels increase, the amount of time allotted to perform the commands gradually decreases. And that in a nutshell is all the instruction you need for this game!

smackme_pic4 smackme_pic5

This game absolutely holds no depth whatsoever… and that’s great! Maybe I’m a simpleton, but from its comical 80’s robotic graphics, to the robotic voice informing you, “CONGRATULATIONS, YOU ARE NOW ADVANCING TO THE NEXT LEVEL”, this app definitely shines. For those looking for a game to captivate you for hours on end, please look elsewhere. If you’re looking for something quick and fun, you found it. Due to the ease of controls, this is one of those games where you can pass your iPhone/iTouch to friends and they’ll enjoy it as easily as you have. Perhaps the creators can take note and design a multiplayer aspect. Other types of gameplay or challenges would definitely make the game better, but more options could affect the sweet simplicity of the game. The only real problem I found is that sometimes the shaking and lifting gets intense, so be wary of your surroundings and make sure you have a good grip on your device.

Circuit Defenders in Review – Anti-Virus With a Twist… or Tower http://www.touchmyapps.com/2009/03/18/circuit-defenders-in-review-anti-virus-with-a-twist%e2%80%a6-or-tower/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2009/03/18/circuit-defenders-in-review-anti-virus-with-a-twist%e2%80%a6-or-tower/#comments Thu, 19 Mar 2009 03:26:52 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=7098 It’s practically a right of passage for anyone that has ever owned a computer (unless you’re so cool that you’ve only ever had a Mac).

circuitdefenders_pic1It’s practically a right of passage for anyone that has ever owned a computer (unless you’re so cool that you’ve only ever had a Mac). One day you start to notice that your computer is running a lot slower than it used to. No matter how few programs you’re running, or how much disk space you free up, you swear there’s something going on in the computer. Oh yeah, the constant porn pop-ups are also a sign that something is definitely not right. So you download, buy, steal, or otherwise acquire an antivirus program, install it, and let it work its magic… but what exactly is it doing? The developers at Sector3 have an idea of what’s going on in there, and they made it into a game: Circuit Defenders.

circuitdefenders_pic2The tower defence (TD) genre is quickly becoming one of the deepest within apps created for the iPhone/iTouch. With the devices’ unique abilities and characteristics, it’s no surprise that TD games would strive. But developers are quickly finding out that finding a new angle for a TD game that separates it from its predecessors is becoming more and more difficult. Well the kids at Sector3 easily breakthrough with Circuit Defenders. Their game takes place within the walls of a computer, and the idea is to protect computer circuits from “virus armies” that are out to infect the CPU by building various towers along the circuits.

circuitdefenders_pic3

circuitdefenders_pic4Another neat and distinguishing aspect of Circuit Defenders are the unique “circuits” or maps. The developers strayed from the straightforward winding maps that most TD games are plagued with, and came up with gems like “SHAMROX” and “RACING PULSE” pictured above. The uncommon maps greatly influence the strategy the must be used in order to be successful from map to map.

Like most TD games there are a range of towers to choose from, all with varying costs. Trying to find the balance between towers that shoot frequently and those that don’t but do more damage is what makes TD games rather enjoyable. Circuit Defenders also allows the player to upgrade various attributes of most towers individually. Where some TD titles just allow a general upgrade of their towers, within Circuit Defenders you can upgrade the amount of damage each shot does, or you can upgrade the rate of fire, or you can upgrade the range of fire. The towers in Circuit Defenders are also susceptible to enemy fire, so health can also be purchased like an upgrade.

circuitdefenders_pic5Circuit Defenders initially impresses with their slant on the TD genre, as well as their cool maps (the music fits the game well too). Once into the game, a few shortcomings rear their ugly heads. Due to the overhead view of the game, the towers don’t look very different from each other even when zoomed all the way in on the action. The enemies also aren’t very distinguishable aside from colour differences. Another gripe is, because of the zig-zag/crossover type maps Circuit Defenders offers, a tower attacks and continues to attack the first enemy that enters its firing range, therefore possibly allowing an enemy farther along on the circuit to stroll right through its firing range. The lack of a big boss or end wave doesn’t help the app either. There’s no real sense of accomplishment for the player as the game just seems to go on and on and on.

Aside from the negative aspects mentioned, Circuit Defenders is a pretty fun game. If you’re a fan of the TD genre, then this app will certainly keep you busy until the next big TD title pops up in the App Store.

blockknights_pic1For the most part, developers are in constant search for that new idea that will separate their game from the mainstream. Whether it be new graphics or new gameplay, “new” is what usually translates into fresh, popular, and of course big dollars. But sometimes a little blast from the past is all a game needs to help set it apart from the present mainstream. Block Knights gets this blast from a little known game called Tetris. Rather than live off of the previous’ legacy, Block Knights does just enough to set it apart. More after the jump!

When Nintendo made video games mainstream and practically accessible to everyone, there was one game that dominated the puzzle genre… Tetris. The brick breaking puzzler used awkward shaped blocks to create a game that people of all ages could enjoy. Many have tried to capitalize on the basics of the hit, but most missed or were too similar to the original. With the aid of the iPhone’s ingenious accelerometer, Block Knights makes that attempt and sets itself apart from its predecessors.

blockknights_pic2The basic premise to Block Knights is to place oddly shaped blocks in such a configuration as to create a line filled with blocks either vertically or horizontally. Once a full line is made, the blocks occupying that straight line disappear from the screen. In the classic puzzler Tetris, puzzle pieces materialized at the top of the screen and were dropped to the bottom of the screen. Puzzle pieces in Block Knights magically appear in the centre, and by tilting the iPhone in any direction one is able to place the puzzle pieces anywhere on the screen. Tapping on the screen rotates the block 90 degrees. Up, down, left, or right; place it wherever you think it fits.

blockknights_pic3Block Knights provides four methods of gameplay: Quest, Arcadia, Guillotine, and Infinitas. In Quest mode, single squares (labelled as Mobs) randomly appear on the screen and it’s your job to clear the Mobs from the screen by filling a line with blocks through them. As the Mobs are cleared, more Mobs appear amongst the blocks you have previously played and it becomes increasingly difficult to clear them from the board.

In the Arcadia and Guillotine modes, a timer is used in two unique methods. The timer in Arcadia is based on the player’s ability to complete full lines either vertically or horizontally. Each line completed puts a little more precious time back on the clock. In the cut-throat Guillotine mode, each individual puzzle piece must be placed before the timer runs out (about 5 to 6 seconds), creating a whirlwind of quick thinking gameplay. Infinitas allows you to enjoy the basic gameplay with no timer.

blockknights_pic4When using apps on my iPhone, I’m very attentive to little details that set an app apart from all other apps. It doesn’t necessarily have to be extremely clever, just a feature that makes me smile. One of those features is the ability mute the game as soon as soon as the app is loaded. How often do you want to enjoy gaming on your iPhone in silence? Having that mute option right from get go is something so simple yet very much appreciated.

There is one tweak that I feel could make Block Knights that much better. Perhaps being able to see the next puzzle piece in a silhouette at the centre of the screen? Aside from that, the gameplay is very original based on its use of the accelerometer. The developers at BitCaper have taken ideas from one of the greatest games ever and created their own stand-alone potentially great game for iTouch and iPhone users to enjoy.

Skybound in Review – Bouncing High into the Sky http://www.touchmyapps.com/2009/02/27/skybound-in-review-bouncing-high-into-the-sky/ http://www.touchmyapps.com/2009/02/27/skybound-in-review-bouncing-high-into-the-sky/#comments Sat, 28 Feb 2009 01:01:32 +0000 http://www.touchmyapps.com/?p=5748 Practically everyone’s watched a bouncing ball as it jumped horizontally across the floor before inevitably coming to a rolling stop.

skybound_pic1Practically everyone’s watched a bouncing ball as it jumped horizontally across the floor before inevitably coming to a rolling stop. But what happens when you give that ball the chance to fly high above the tallest buildings, past the blue skies, and into space and beyond? Skybound gives you the opportunity to investigate the air up there in a fun and challenging way.

Skybound offers three game modes to choose from: Normal, Easy, and Boss. The premise of both Normal and Easy mode is to guide the bouncing ball to new heights as it scrolls vertically upwards. But why you may ask? The game developers provide the following text box within the Gallery:

“The ball is a falling object capable of thought. It is asking itself “What is this absurd existence I am trapped in?”. A god-like intervention periodically enters the universe to spawn cloud-like objects. The ball has identified these clouds as being able to bounce it upwards into the sky. Each time the ball is bounced, it experiences great pleasure, but as soon as the motion turns, the questions flow back.
“Why am I falling?”
“Why am I here?”
“Save me”

So, do that, save the ball.”

(Makes you wonder what kind of weed they have in Norway, and how to get it across the Atlantic. j/k!)

skybound_pic2The cloud platform can be drawn as a horizontal line to simply keep the ball bouncing straight up; it can also be drawn at an angle of your choosing so you can guide the ball all around the screen gathering useful power-ups and cartoon heads (I’ll talk more about the cartoon heads a little later). The power-ups enable you to do things like bounce higher, bounce invincibly through walls, or even give you a safety-cloud net at the bottom of the screen. Although you could play it safe and guide your ball higher and higher as straight as you can into the unknown, you’re constantly compelled to bounce the ball in the directions of the power-ups, or around the brick wall barriers.

skybound_pic3The last gaming option is Boss mode. The goal here is to eliminate the boss which happens to be an eyeball guarded by smaller eyeballs. To defeat each boss, you need to bounce the ball into the large eye four times. Once defeated, a new boss spawns which is guarded by small eyeballs again but in a different formation.

There are a total of twenty-five “Challenges” that can be accomplished within the three game modes, all of which are listed and status displayed. They range in simple to achieve goals, to goals where you need to drastically alter your style of play to accomplish.

skybound_pic4As you aid the ball in travelling thousands and thousands of feet above the ground, you notice the altitude change in the unique backgrounds drawn up. The drawings look more like paintings created by some savant artist; definitely not what you would expect to see in the background of a video game. It’s this type of attention to detail that makes it apparent how content the games developers (Tumbleweed Interactive) must be with their app. In Boss mode, if you take a close look at the sides of the screen you’d notice that as you defeat each boss, names slide up and down the screen giving credit to a game tester, or someone else that must have helped in creating the app. Details like collecting cartoon head icons of the creators as “Challenges” in the game are even more proof of the pride and enjoyment these boys from Norway must take in offering up this app for everyone’s enjoyment.

bang_pic1If you’re the type of gamer that just wants to jump into a game with no need for instruction, if you like no-strategy gameplay, if you like mindless button-mashing, if you like games that go on and on with no change and no real reward… Boy, do I have a game for you!

When I grabbed this game from the App Store, I couldn’t wait to give it a go. With an onomatopoeic name like “Bang!” how could you not be a little excited? Pressed the little Bang! icon and had to wait a little while the app was “Initializing.”

bang_pic2Oh man! Initializing! Any game that takes more than average time to load must be well worth the 10 second wait! I eagerly pressed the word START with no interest in the little info icon in the bottom corner.

bang_pic3“READY?” Tapped the screen and bombs immediately began falling from the sky. Quickly figured out that touching the bombs exploded them with the word BANG! popping up every time a bomb was detonated (reminding me of the old Batman television series where every punch or kick was accompanied by a BAM!, POW! or ZAP!). My mission was becoming clear to me; don’t let the bombs touch the bottom of the screen!

bang_pic4Every now and then an airplane would fly across the screen and it didn’t take me long to deduct that unlike the falling bombs, the airplanes needed more than a couple of taps to blow them up. As the levels increased, so did the number of bombs and the speed at which they were falling. By Level 5 it started to become clear that this was it, but I had to keep playing! Level 6… Level 7… Level 8… Level 9… done. Ok wait a minute, is that it? Yes. Sad but true, this game doesn’t hold much depth. Explode the bombs, and keeping doing the same until you reach the next level with more falling bombs to get rid of.

Unless you’re the type of gamer that enjoys games that really only hold your interest for several minutes, this game is definitely not for you. I played it twice, and finished it on the second go, never to be played again… Now available for $1.99!

sportacular_pic1Don’t be upset that the picture above isn’t of Mariah Carey. Some guys (or girls) relate the word “fantasy” with visions of scantily clad vixens, but when I think of the word, it’s usually “I wonder how I’m doing in my Fantasy (insert sport here) Pool!!!” Having Sportacular helps me answer that question right away. Whether you’re a fantasy sports junkie, or just a sports junkie in general, Sportacular keeps you connected with all the sporting info you need while on the go.

Developed by Jeff Hamilton and currently under the Citizen Sports Network umbrella, this app all but eliminates phone calls to friends wondering what the damn score is. Sportacular keeps you up to date in the world of MLB, NHL, NBA, NFL, NCAA (football and basketball), MLS, PGA (regular, Champions, Nationwide, and European tour), and the LPGA. Not only are the scores kept up to date, but the app provides standings, schedules, stats, and news from the all the major sports leagues.

sportacular_pic2 sportacular_pic3

Looking for a score? Pick the league you’re interested in, and voila! Controls are practically idiot-proof, so there really isn’t anything to complain about. Navigating within a particular league, or jumping between sports is simple and quick thanks to the clearly labelled buttons.

Scores update automatically every 30 seconds, so there’s no need to constantly reload the data. In-progress game info for MLB, NBA, NHL, or the NFL, is as detailed as you need it to be while you’re on the go. Who needs to know what players are on the basketball court at any given time during the game? I do! Perhaps you’re not interested in today’s game, but yesterdays? Sportacular gives you the ability to pull scores from weeks ago (the farthest I found were detailed hockey scores from back in October). Not only are the daily scores up to date, but so are the standings. So checking to see if your favourite team is still sitting in a possible playoff spot, or just got bumped out of contention is quick and easy.

sportacular_pic4 sportacular_pic5

Pre-game info is also very important to someone like me. Aside from who’s playing who and at what time, Sportacular enables you to see the betting lines for most major league games as well as the Over/Under numbers. Many of you may not live in an area that allows you to legally wager on sports, so betting info may not be your cup of tea, but where I’m from many people might be familiar with two words very dear to my heart: Sports Action (thank you British Columbia Lottery Corporation)!

sportacular_pic6Depending on what sports season it is, Fantasy pools weigh heavy on my interest in knowing the score. Whether there’s money involved or just for straight-up bragging rights, I’m in constant need to know how I’m doing in “the pool.” Here up North, hockey fans live and die by their fantasy players performances on a nightly basis. Sportacular has a wonderful option that allows you to set up Custom/Fantasy teams making it amazingly easy to follow multiple players from various teams all on one page. All the major statistical categories are present allowing one to get a rough estimate of their fantasy team’s status. Maybe you don’t participate in any fantasy pools and just want to follow all your favourite players in the league; this option allows you to do just that.

Based on how frequently I personally use this app, the fact that it’s free makes it easily one of the Top 5 apps I’ve ever pulled from the App Store. Whether you need it to stay on top of your fantasy teams, on top of your gambling habits, or on top of the score in general, Sportacular is a great app that keeps you connected to the sports world.
