We all played boardgames as kids. Some of us still do. The fun (and occasional frustration) of it all can provide memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks to EA, you can re-live those memories and create some new ones at the same time. With immensely successful previous boardgame releases such as Monopoly and Trivial Pursuit, EA is continuing to turn classic family boardgames into amazing iDevice adventures with their latest release, The Game of Life Classic Edition.
1978′s monumental game, Space Invaders, is a game that almost everyone should have played at least once in their life. Though I’ve played the original several times coin-op at arcades and pizzerias, I wasn’t its biggest fan. I found the graphics bland and the music dull. However, for 1978 it was an amazing feat for the budding video game business. Now, in 2009, a new Space Invaders game, Space Invaders Infinity Gene (or SIIG for short) – is out. And it rocks. This game not only draws my attention more than a fly to a lightbulb, but is my favorite shooter game of all time.
For any who have read my Pocket Informant review, you already know what got me into looking for apps that sync to online services, but for those of you who haven’t read it yet, I’ll give a brief summary of my need for online back up. At first, I depended on the inbuilt notes app and calendar for everything, but my old PC decided to quit syncing my calendar app and contacts to Outlook, and of course my notes, which included my todos simply didn’t sync when I first got my iPhone 3G. To top it all off, backing up my iPhone to iTunes seemed just a colossal waste of my free time.
EA have type-casted me as a sleaze and I will admit to liking it. But, let me straighten out one thing: prior to playing the Sims 3, I had no idea what a ‘woohoo’ was and why my sim should as a dying wish desire it 8 times in one day. Well, after at least 17 hours of play, I have not accomplished his goal, but I have learned how to be a true and proper sleaze in this beautiful game.
