Guinness World Records in Review – Become A Part Of History

guinessworldrecords1

I could have never fathomed in my wildest dreams that I would be able to set a world record without breaking anything and ending up in the hospital. For the past six years I haven’t chewed a single piece of gum (with much reason behind it, but I’ll refrain from telling the story), so you could only imagine my mortification when I attained the illustrious Guinness World record title for the largest bubble blown. How is this possible you ask? Well, in Guinness World Records, by Warner Bros., you can set the world record in 36 quirky and bizarre areas such as the most tattoos.

Pharaoh in Review – A simple and fun puzzle game

pharaoh-1

I’ve been playing puzzle games for quite some time now, but it’s only been since Puzzle Quest that I’ve had larger expectations when it comes to these types of games. Nowadays I want there to be more to a puzzle game, some achievements to reach, some connective story linking my quest together. But sometimes, a puzzle game is no more than the puzzle itself, and so long as it’s bringing something interesting to the table, it can still be a lot of fun too.

DJ Mix Tour in Review – Pump Up The Jam

djmixtour1

Tap Tap Revenge’s fame is unparalleled. Just as Tap Tap Revenge brought on an onslaught of clones and apps similar that were trying to steal its limelight, so did other well known games such as Flight Control. DJ Mix Tour doesn’t fall into the category of being a Tap Tap Revenge clone, but more or less a variation of the popular franchise with its own sui generis aspects and high quality Gameloft flare.

Buka in Review – ‘Sploding Baddies!

buka1“Buka makes stars go boom!” – The description given by the developers Hexage.net for their award-winning casual action game for the Android platform. As some people may categorize Buka as a shooter game, I categorize it under the castle defence genre like Chillingo’s Knights Onrush, with a much different variation in graphics and a slightly different concept.

Peggle in Review – Pachinko on Acid

peggle1I admit I was one of the few people living under a rock that had no idea what the heck Peggle was. To me, it just seemed like one of those games that people got excited for but just didn’t do it for me. So when I had the opportunity to review PopCap Games’ Peggle, it seemed just another one on the list. When the App loaded, I was greeted with a colorful, highly energetic, fun-paced experience.

Last Cannon in Review – Beware the Knurlings

last_cannon1

“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.
