Upcoming Game~ Koala Dartz

Posted by andyl19 on April 24, 2009

strip-koala-copy3

The great people over at Starbyte were kind enough to let me beta test their upcoming game, Koala Dartz. Now I can’t saw that much of the game because I don’t want to spoil it for you guys, but I’ll say this: Fans of the flash game, Bloons, will truely love this game. It’s very much like Bloons, except the main character is a Koala.The main objective is just like Bloons too: Shoot at the balloons with limited darts to reach the target goal. Their also is a nice amount of obstacles in the game also. The game is supposed to have 50 levels when it’s released.

Here is a screenshot for you guys:

sticker_skyburger

Yes that’s right, anther soild looking game from Ian Marsh was released today, Sky Burger. Just like Scoops( another game from Ian) you have to catch falling Burgers from the sky rather than ice cream now. You’ll have to catch the right ingredients from the sky so you make the perfect burger( Don’t forget the bun at the end!). There are over 50 unique burger orders that grow taller and taller the more orders you complete. Earn cash for each burger you complete, and if you do really well, you might get promoted up the Sky Burger corporate ladder. Look at your own career stats and see if you match up with the top Sky Burger employees.

TweetStack- “Tweetdeck for iPhone”

Posted by andyl19 on April 10, 2009

A new Twitter client was just realeased by B1TE, Tweetstack. Now you might me saying, why are you even writing this Andy?  Tweetie is the only Twitter app I ever need! Maybe these features will impress you:

* Organise your Twitter stream using customisable Stacks
* Search Stack
* User Stack
* TwitPic gallery Stack
* Location stack
* Favorites stack
* Replies stack
* Direct Messages stack
* TweetDeck import
* Multiple Accounts
* Add, edit, delete and reorder stacks
* Unread message count on stacks and application icon
* Locally saved messages for offline mode
* SMS style send and recieve of messages
* @ twitter id and # hash tag autocompletion
* TwitPic upload
* Load conversation
* Twitter user profile view
* ReTweet shortcut
* Inline @,# and web links
* Streamlined UI

Now that’s only version 1.0. Look at what they have in plan for verion 1.1:

* Search by Miles/KM on Location Stack
* StockTwits Stack
* Add your location to a tweet
* Auto-scroll to earliest unread tweet option
* Option to change font size
* Simple (as opposed to bubble) tweet view
* TweetFollow integration
* Improved Friend Stack screen with search
* Trends

The thing that impresses me though, is the ability to import Tweetdeck groups. To do so, go here->http://www.b1te.com/tweetstack/tweetdeck.html

The developer even provides a video demonstration:

TweetStack Beta 1.0A from Matt Brooke-Smith on Vimeo.

Vodpod videos no longer available.


So this might have a chance of competing with Tweetie if you think about it. For more info go to the developer website-http://www.b1te.com/tweetstack/index.html

PocketGod 1.11 Update Out!

Posted by andyl19 on April 8, 2009

pocketgod

Last week Apple rejected the weekly PocketGod update so the devs decided to combine last weeks update with this week’s update! The first thing they added was the ability for your islanders/pygmies to fish. Just select the “island” from the dock and under it you’ll find a picture of a fish. A fishing pole will drop down. Immediately one of your islanders will go over, pick the pole up, and sit down. Sometimes he’ll catch a fish for one of your islanders to eat, but beware: the shark will bite on your pole and drag your pygmie into the sea and to his doom! Also when you catch a fish, you can then “fish-slap” one of your islanders.

008

The second feature Bolt Creative added was the ability to add an anthill on your island and an intense magnifying glass. Poke the anthill a couple of times to anger the ants and get them running around the anthill. Once you do that, touch the anthill and drag to create a line in any direction for your ants to scurry to. Now here’s the cool part, with the magnifying glass you can fry the ants or even your islanders! Just drag it above the ant or islander and make sure the light is shining on them. If you do it right your ant should burn and die in seconds while your pygmie catches on fire and suffers a painful death.

006

Also in this update comes the integration of Feint. You’ll be able to chat to other players in the many chatrooms. Currently as I’m typing this, Feint is temporarily unavailable. It will be back shortly.

So that’s basically PocketGod Update 1.11- Something’s Fishy! + March of the Fire Ants!

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.
