Balls to the walls – Collider Dev humiliates self for fame

Not sure how to tag this one… how ’bout: crazy coder; or: daemonic dev ? Still coming up short. Collider’s dev, Dan Russell-Pinson, certainly is. The mad chap has been chomping at the bit since 2007, creating flash games such as Tipping Point and Block Drop. Collider is another flash-based arcade game where users must eliminate balls of the opposite attraction. Sound crazy? It is until you find out what Dan has been up to. Evidently his family and friends started to worry after he began ‘defacing famous works of art’ in order to get the word out. While TMA doesn’t condone tipping over The Thinker, we don’t mind someone actin’ a little off in order to get the word out.

Collider is expected to crash into the App Store in late January. Till then, you can enjoy his other arcade games.

Tourist Lover in Review – take it off to get it on

If James Bond played video games, Tourist Lover, which places a fistful of romantic cities, 30 girls and breezy outfits in your palm, would be his staple pastime. Its goal is to liberate girls from their nearly thread-bare duds… and see what happens. Do it right and 007′s compliment, “That’s a nice little nothing you’re almost wearing”, is most apt.

The Simpsons Arcade in Review: Homer – Is there anything he can’t do?

“Mmmmm… Frosted pink donut and the Simpsons iPhone game …”

That was my own Homer moment when I first found out that the much anticipated Simpsons iPhone game wa soon to be released. And when it was finally out, I realized I was out of credits and immediately tweeted “I WANT!!!” to the rest of the world. Desperate for a sign from heaven, I was eventually blessed with a complimentary code which allowed me to download one of the games I have been waiting for since the iPod Touch came out.

Arachnadoodle in Review – LOL of the flies

Review-Games-Arachnadoodle-IMG_1030

I’m reliving grade 10 all over again. Another assignment, another dose of dread. Except that this time, I am completely amazed by the subject. Arachnadoodle isn’t anything like a Robert Golding’s anarchic adventure; it is a ligth-hearted load of web-slinging fun worth more than its 99 cents price tag. But be prepared to sit down, advance some strategies, and get your sling on, because this action/puzzler isn’t just for the funniac.
