New iConnect Twitter app is Sweet

Posted by andyl19 on May 3, 2009

Just a couple of minutes ago I found a new Twitter app for your iPhone/iPod touch, iConnect. So far a lot of people are enjoying it. Here are some cool features of iConnect:

– Specially designed for iPod touch users: offline reading, retweet and reply
– Innovative 3D friends list User interface
– Threaded Message user interface
– People centered design philosophy

Now the thing that will probably catch your eye is the Innovative 3D friends list User interface. Basically you can see your followers who have recently tweeted all in one place. It will also tell you how many times they did, with a little red number in the upper right hand corner. Here’s a screenshot.

007 

What really impresses me is that you can tweet in landscape mode. It’s appearance is very nice also.

The sidebar of iConnect makes it very easy to view your @replies, DMs, and also the other tweets of your followers. I think there needs to be an button to refresh your tweets. If the devs add that in the coming updates, this will seriously be a condending app against other great Twitter clients such as Tweetie and TwitterFon.

Right now iConnect has an introducing price of FREE. $0.00, no money will be charged. So I really suggest you get it right now because it will soon go up to $4.99. Overall this app is pretty cool and easy to use, but with a few tweaks this app will be superior.

Ballerina- A stunning and unique app you haven’t heard about

Posted by andyl19 on May 2, 2009

2009-05-02_102059Now the app Ballerina is not a game, more like an entertainment app. I know a lot of entertainment apps in the App Store are crappy, but this is far from that.

So basically this app is meant to amaze you. If you tilt around the center of the screen, it will give off a 3D holographic effect. You can also see the effect if you look straight down the screen of your device.

Another cool thing of this app is that it changes color. It will start blue and then slowly change to green and purple.

Overall Ballerina is an excellent app to entertain people and very pleasing to your eye. It’s currently $0.99.

This video demonstrates it well:

Blocked Review + Gameplay Video

Posted by andyl19 on April 4, 2009

Sometimes when your down, a quick puzzle is all you need. Blocked by Joel Rosenberg is exactly what you need. If you’ve ever played Rush Hour, this is exactly like that except without the cars. Instead this game uses blocks. Not only is this game perfect for short periods of time, this game can also keep you occupied for large amounts of time with its 100 levels of touch and drag action.

014

If you have no idea how to play Blocked, don’t worry as anybody can learn how to play this game even without instructions. The gameplay is really simple, all you have to do is move the gray blocks out of the way so the blue block has a path out. Although this might sound very simple, don’t be fooled. The levels start out very easy but gradually increase in difficulty. Blocked has five levels of difficulty: Easy, Medium, Hard, Harder, and Hardest.

015016

The only negative of this game is that there are absolutely no music and sound effects. I guess you could just listen to your own music, but we all have to agree sound effects and music would be nice. Other than that, there isn’t really any other complaint from me.

017

In the end Blocked is a solid game that will keep your brain thinking and you hooked. At some times you can’t even quit the game because your too engaged in the game. This game is just $0.99 and literally does not take any room on your iPod or iPhone. I’m not forcing you to buy this game, but this simple game is just a gem that sticks out of the 30,000+ games on the App Store.

Guest Review and Giveaway- BlackJack Run

Posted by andyl19 on March 22, 2009

This review was writtened by Conrad Weykamp! Please follow him on Twitter! @conradweykamp. The CEO of Seahorse Software, James Lee, was also kind enough to provide you guys with Three promo codes! To win just comment on this review or tweet the following on Twitter: Win BlackJack Run for iPhone/Ipod touch! Go to@AndyL19’s site, http://bit.ly/vS13n for more details! UPDATE: Codes all gone!;)

BlackJack Run is a quick-fire blackjack style game from Seahorse Software http://www.seahorsesoft.com The premise behind the game is to make as many blackjack hands as possible. You are given cards one at a time, and cannot see beyond that card.

blackjack

Games consist of multiple rounds (you can choose to play 3 or unlimited rounds) each round you have to make at least 95 points to advance to the next round. Points are scored by the value each card holds, the closer you are to 21 in each row the better, (for more points and bonus points) Bonus points are scored by having a 2 card blackjack (+100 for each), a 3+ hand of 21 (+50 for each), all row 21 (+200 points) and time left (10x each second).

blackjack1

The great thing about this game is the amount of different options you have to customize you game experience. For example, you can change the background, amount of rounds, how many starting cards you have, wether or not to display the total on the side, and seconds per round.

Each of these settings can be changed to customize to a certain level, the level only determines which settings you are playing at. For example playing at level 13 is the same as playing at level one except you play for unlimited rounds instead of 3.

blackjack3

Another nice thing about this game is how quickly it is to pick up and put down, the perfect balance for a mobile game. Each round takes a max of 30 seconds and you can always hit the home key and the game will be saved for you to play once you’re ready.

blackjack4

Of course you can upload your score to the global highscore list, or keep your own local high scores.

A few disappointing things about this game is I have encountered two crashes, however they were not during gameplay.

Another strange thing is when you have multiple cards turned down, the total of the cards will be shown before you start the game. While this does not affect gameplay too much, it is a strange design choice, because the player will know that they need lower or higher cards (depending if the total before the cards are flipped are high or low). I suspect that this is a bug and will be fixed in an update.

Otherwise, this is a very addicting, well thought-out game that deserves more attention.

++ Addicting
++ Fun gameplay that doesn’t get old

== Meh graphics

— Few crashes (didn’t affect gameplay)

Easter Sneezies- Now Cuter than Ever

Posted by andyl19 on March 18, 2009

Antair Corporation has just recently released a new Easter themed Sneezies game. Just like the original Sneezies it has the same gameplay. But in this game it now has new graphics all at a low price, $0.99. Since this game is basically the same as the first Sneezies, I won’t be providing a review for this. Instead just read our original Sneezies review for details about it->

https://andysreviews.wordpress.com/2009/03/02/sneezies-contagious-and-cute-at-the-same-time/

If you want to be in the Easter spirit, I definitely recommend the Easter Sneezies Edition. You’ll get more levels to play and more cuteness taking you over. Really consider this to be your next app purchase.

Bugz Review and Giveaway!!

Posted by andyl19 on March 12, 2009

UPDATE: Congrats Donburns99 for winning Bugz! I’ll email you the code as soon as possible. I picked a name out of a hat in case you wondered how I came up with the winner

I know a lot of people out there hate bugs, but this game about bugs is not a game you should hate. Bugz has very similar gameplay to another game, Sneezies. Your main and only objective is to pop as many “Bugz” as possible by starting a chain reaction of bugz popping. To acheive this, simply tap the screen to make a pop that will expand and shrink again. If your pop hits another bug it will pop it and start a chain reaction effect.

016

Beware, this game is very addicting. I know I’ve said a lot of games are addicting, but this game goes beyond addicting. In every level you have to pop a number of Bugz before you can move on to the next level. Don’t worry if you think you have a number of lives to deal with, as there are no lives in this game. If you can’t reach the goal you can always try the level again to see if you can pass it. Play through a whopping 102 levels in Bugz.

010

In Bugz you have to set up a profile first. Don’t worry as there is no hassle in setting this up, all you have to do is enter your name. With this profile you’ll be able save and load your current state quickly. In this proflie you can also view your own stats and an online high score table from throughout the world.

017

As you progress through this game, you’ll face more obstacles. There is a special colored bug that you need to pop in order to move on to the next level. A flower will hinder the bugz by moving in erratic patterns. If they get too close to the bugz, they will stop and eat them.

0131

Another thing I have to give Bugz credit to is the great soundtrack. The soundtrack suits the gameplay almost as if they were meant to be together. But if you don’t like it, you can always use your own hip music.

013

Overall this is a game that is as addicting as crack from Didev Studios. You’ll be popping bugs for hours and trying to set new high scores to compete with the rest of the world. This game is only $0.99 right now so you should pick this up immediately. You’ll definitely not turn back and think this game was a bad purchase.
