I am a man of many moods. This is why I love the AppStore. I can find Apps that fit my current state of mind. One mood that has been seeing much rotation in my life is that of quietness. As I get older, I tend to find time to draw myself away from the fast paced, extreme themed, action oriented options that are out there and seek for simplicity and solitude. Wooden Labyrinth 3D goes a long way in enhancing those peaceful times.
Measures – Unit Converter puts an elegant spin on the crowded genre of unit conversion apps with its single screen color-changeable interface, convenient scroll wheel, and clean design.
I remember when I first got my iPhone (it was a first generation that I had to unlock to use outside of the US), I was very amazed by the syncing capabilities. The data on the phone was exactly the same as on the computer, I could copy all my bookmarks, e-mail account settings and my entire phonebook without any problems such as duplication or the phone simply not syncing (I used to use Sony Ericssons). However I was, and still am, intrigued as to why the phone cannot sync tasks or to-dos. The reason is very simple; Leopard has it and since it could sync everything over from the computer, why not tasks and to-dos??
It’s been a while since I’ve played any new games on the iPhone/ iPod Touch, mainly because I was still stuck with a few older games on the platform. That’s why I really didn’t know what to expect with Bobby Carrot Forever initially; I haven’t even heard of it before…
In the culinary world, the concept of fusion cuisine is explored with varying degrees of success and failure. The same is true for games. There has been a blending of such genres like action and RPGs. Rocky Artue fused two genres together to form the first true, in my opinion and recollection, on-rails platformer. There is no other way to describe this.
I will say this now. Stop reading this review and pick up the game now at the current $0.99 price before it increases. For goodness sakes, go!
For those who are unconvinced, I will hope to explain why I believe iDracula is currently one of the better games the App Store has to offer and why this should be on your “get quick” list.
I’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.
First 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.
There 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.
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.
