Orions: Legends of Wizards in Review – A card game of legendary proportions

orions1I’ll be honest.  I’ve never played card games on computers or consoles.  Sure, I’ve played hearts on my PC, but that’s about it.  I used to play Hearts, Euchre and Crazy Eights when I was younger, but I really haven’t played any card games since then.

After playing Orions: Legends of Wizards, I’m left wondering why I haven’t played card games in such a long time!  I’ve spent a few sleepless nights and days at work dreaming about what my next move and/or strategy should be for my next battle.  That my friends, is when you know you’re playing a great game.

Krypton Egg in Review – The Ultimate Breakout?

kryptonegg4First developed for the Atari in 1990, Krypton Egg has survived obscurity for almost 20 years  by being arguably one of the best breakout clones out there. If looks alone could kill, the game could very well have been rejected by the App Store. Thankfully, Krypton Egg more than makes up for its cosmetic deficiencies with solid and engaging gameplay and a whack load of crazy fun power ups.

Vector Tanks in Review – Old School Has A New Face

vectortanks1There was an old NBA Jam machine in my local deli. Word got around that if you pressed a certain combination of buttons and joystick directions, you would be able to access a small game called Battlezone. As the forefather of Vector Tanks, there is much that is taken from the game: The wireframe graphics, the feel of the controls, the smell of cheesesteaks on the grill (ok, maybe not that one). Yet, Vector Takes take the original formula and kicks it like its 2009… which it is.

Geometrix in Review: Flat but compelling?

img_0037

Glyphic Entertainment, LLC have added a unique arcade puzzler to the App Store with Geometrix:  Flatland Unbound.  Fast and furious, it is a great addition to the catalogue of games that Chillingo have brought to the App Store.  For fans of Edwin A. Abbott’s novel, this game gains instant wuffie but fails when compared to the seminal literature.

Reign of Swords in Review – Forsooth Tis Fun

reignofswords1There’s something all pervasive about the Medieval Times that influences RPG and strategy games. You can have a game set in the year 3054 and still find armor clad heroes and heroines with swords. Even mystical lands filled with dwarves, orcs, and elves find themselves subject to the restraints of this swords and sorcery treatment. Not deviating from this formula, Punch Entertainment’s Reign of Swords fits squarely with its brethren. Yet, for an App Store that is still seeking to fill out its genre coffers, this game is a welcome addition.

WeDict Pro in Review – No More Freebies

wedictpro1There was once a time when WeDict was a half-decent free dictionary. It sufficed for the basic needs of many people who deemed literacy a high priority in their lives. Between that time and now, the freebie faded away and WeDict Pro, the full paid version, remained. While more robust in functions and features than its free predecessor, does WeDict Pro have enough to justify its (as many would consider) hefty price?

A Look at ReaddleDocs – File Transfer and beyond

readdledocs1Readdle, developers behind the robust and versatile Take A Note app, has recently released an impressive document and file management app in ReaddleDocs. While there are plenty of file transfering apps out there that compete to do a similar task (our comparison article of several can be read here), ReaddleDocs comes with a long list of features that should satify both casual and business users.
