It is already a highly addictive and much more expensive PC game that has amassed a good following. Look for it at the App Store in the following week along with Mahjongg Artifact: Chapter 2.
360°. A full circle. That’s what Kryzer Prologue is based off of! You control the flight path an inter-dimensional cyberspace glider as it vaporizes enemy units. Instead of traditional side scrolling or vertical shoot ‘em ups, Kryzer Prologue’s unique gameplay sets you in a circular play field as you rotate clockwise around the circle.

“This is the end. What was once paradise is now waste and rotting meat. I am surrounded by the decaying corpses of these disgusting invaders. The stink of them fills my thoughts. And I am so hungry. Before my mind consumes itself in despair, I have to write our story. My name is Jhava, and as far as I know, I’m all that’s left.”
Dark and somber, but it catches your attention huh? That is the beginning of the tale you get if you choose to open the in game journal. Don’t worry though, Last Cannon is actually very relaxing to play and the rest of the game isn’t really depressing.
At first glance this game has the simplistic feel and look that I tend to enjoy in iDecive games. in fact, this one particularly reminded me of Doodle Jump and Crayon Physics, both of which are incredibly fun and intuitive games. With high hopes, I fired this app up and boy was I disappointed. The cannon was loaded with a ball of potential, its aim perfect, and its fuse lit… but there was no boom. The cannoneer misfired with Ragdoll Blaster.
Pocket Tanks is a game that has been around in some shape or form since 2001. It’s available for the Windows and OSX platforms. As stated in the iTunes page, “Almost 2 million downloads from download.com alone (PC version).” With such a large fan base, a leg up in terms of gameplay refinement, and the staying power of 8 years of experience, (I know I’m going to get some flak for this) I’m surprised at how much I felt Pocket Tanks was lacking.
I had originally grabbed Flight Control on a whim, something about the simplistic art style and the 99 cent price tag flipped my impulse switch. Before I even recognized what I was doing, the game installed on my iPod. Going in I had no expectations for the game, hell I barely even knew what it was about! After the initial loading screen you’re confronted with this simple question “Welcome Aboard! Would you like game sounds?” Without considering the ramifications of my actions I clicked the red “YES” button. The slightly upbeat elevator music transported me to a 1950’s airport terminal. I had become an Air Traffic Controller, not just any air traffic controller… I was the BEST.
Gravity. Something so simple, yet it holds so much power. What is it exactly? Well, it’s defined as the force of attraction by which terrestrial bodies tend to fall toward the center of the earth. Now you may be wondering why I’m talking about this, but it turns out that the new game G, by Soma Games, is all about gravity.
Wooden floors and polished table tops; the chirping of rubber soles on recently waxed floors and above all, the acrid and sweet smell of sweat. Skyworks have added to the growing list of table tennis simulators in the app store with World Cup Ping Pong and have scored a few good shots against the more historied competition.
WARNING! Doodle Jump is addictive and will cause you to lose large amounts of your day.
