When I saw the name of this game, Jumping Electron. I was intrigued. Having a degree in Chemistry, I thought this game would be right up my alley. Jumping Electrons is fun arcade type game with a bit of a flare for the technically inclined.
I am a big fan of turn-based strategy games. When I heard about Conquest! Medieval Realms by Slitherine I knew I wanted to give it a try. Overall it is a very well done game and should be in the library of any turn-based strategy gamers.
Back in 2009, Amanita Design surprised everyone of us with one of the best Point & Click adventures yet to be seen, set in a Steampunk world with that indie feeling all over it. Such a game was filled with lots of puzzles and brain-breaking riddles, that were purposely made to keep you thinking for a long time.
Casual games are something that I tend to play little of only because I'm more the fast and furious gamer who enjoys FPS titles and racing games, Action adventure and platformers. So when diving into a casual game for a review, I have to keep in mind that I'm not trying to get a headshot on someone else.
Aliens, blowing up stuff, making money, cool graphics and a fun story line all make up for a great combination. So if you like any of these, then you might want to give Demolition Inc. THD a try. Did we mention there we exploding cows as well?
There's a huge advantage in the mobile gaming market nowadays, that has become crucial for a big amount of developers: you don't need to make an eye-popping games full of superb graphics to be successful. As a consequence of this, games are now rated for their content, theme, ability to hook people, and creativity. This is the case of Kairosoft: a company that has really hit the spot with their Time-Resource management games. And one of their latest releases just confirms this. Let's take a look at "Cafeteria Nipponica".
A few weeks back, a new game came out called Parallel Mafia. It was a new game from the same company, PerBlue, which produced Parallel Kingdom. Both of the parallel games are location-based RPG games. I have heard a lot of good things about Parallel Kingdom but had not played it so I decided to give the new game a try. It has taken me a while to write this review, because I have been busy playing both games!
Let's be honest, Doom isn't just a legend amongst players nowadays, It's more of a lifestyle. It defined the term FPS back in the 90's, and keeps being played to this very day. Now, if you used to think "oh, it just looks so damn pixelated and I'd rather get one of those awesome-looking games on my tablet", you better start getting those bucks out of your pocket, since this OpenGLES port of Doom, Doom II, Ultimate Doom (and virtually any IWAD out there) will surely get you back to some martians-ass-kicking.
It seems I may have been a little bit harsh with Gameloft over the last few weeks. I slated the new Dungeon Hunter game, and exposed several problems with games when using Ice Cream Sandwich. This time I'm here to talk about their latest release, Shark Dash.
Temple Run was originally a paid game released onto the iOS platform and as a paid game saw minimal success. The developers, Imangi Studios, decided to change their business model to free-to-play and saw a huge surge in popularity making the game a hit. After a fairly long delay Temple Run has finally made it onto Android and after all the hype this game has gotten, does it live up to the hype? Let's find out.
This last week, one of my favorite game publishers were very generous to us. Gamevil released not one, but two retro-style RPG games. Being a Gamevil fan and lover of retro RPG, it seemed quite fitting for me to review at least one of them. So here we go.
