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.
There’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.
As you all know from my previous review, I’m a real-time managing expert. Ok, I may not be an expert, and I may not even be close to a professional, but I do know fun and intense games when I see them. Cake Mania 3 is definitely on the fun and intense side, and probably more on the intense side.
There is little doubt that the iDevice makes a great platform for racers. One can see that by the 5 pages of racing games in the AppStore. With so many to choose from, and with little variety between them, a game has to justify its existence in order to thrive. This is where Burning Tires 3D faces a dilemma. Is it good or innovative enough to warrant a purchase? Unfortunately, unlike Fishlab’s other racing game, Powerboat Challenge 3D, there is little reasons that legitimize this game.
Ethan Nicholas and his game, iShoot, represent the dreams and ambitions of the thousands of independent developers that flock towards the AppStore. He went from obscurity, which lasted for months, to recognition and renown for both his business acumen and for the quality of iShoot. He did so well that at the current time of writing, iShoot has been on the top 100 paid apps list for over a month.
I’ve watched my wife play time management games for years now. I have to be honest that I’ve never really understood the attraction to the genre. Well, it was time to find out what these types of games are all about, and I now have a new found appreciation for the genre.
What I first found interesting in this game was the strategy element. I mistakenly thought that this was a game that you just tap aimlessly as quickly as possible to get everything done with in the time limit. Maybe I’ve played too many shoot ‘em ups…
I find that I’m using my iTouch less as a music player and more as an extremely portable computer. I spend more time surfing the web, using apps, and playing games than I do just sitting there listening to music. This is a testimony to the versatility and functionality that Apps, such as gFlash Pro, bring to this wonderful platform.
There’s nothing quite like coming to a new world or city, to find out it hasn’t been developed yet. Welcome to Westward pardner! You are among the first settlers in the West!! While this may be a port of a PC game from a few years back, it’s still a whole lot of fun! Most importantly, it really is implemented very well on the iDevice thanks to its touch screen. But we’ll get to that in a bit…
It is no small statement to say that sports games contribute largely to a console’s success. In Apple’s bid to legitimize their iDevice platform to the same level as their portable competitors, this is one area that is, unfortunately, severely lacking. With less than a handful of fully fleshed out sports games, any addition to the app store is a welcome one and a huge step forward in cementing the iPhone and iTouch as the gaming system it has the potential to be.
I won’t spend long on this list as our colleagues in krapps have probably covered at length the features of: Marriage Saver for Men, Marriage Saver for Women, Yes Man! and Just Say No!. This app All four of these apps have a commonality: original publication as tutorial for X-Code for dunrks and Dummies, grade 2 edition.
