Sneezies- Contagious and Cute at the Same Time

Posted by andyl19 on March 2, 2009

Sneezies is one of the cutest games ever for the iPhone and iPod touch device. I mean just look at the icon and you’ll find out what I’m talking about. Those adorable and fluffy creatures will surely take you over to the soft and cuddly side.

Not only is Sneezies a cute game, it has pretty good darn gameplay. Your main objective is to try to eliminate as many Sneezies in bubbles by using magical sneezing powder. Touch one of the floating Sneezies to make it sneeze and it will trigger a chain reaction and remove all the close by Sneezies around it. When you eliminate Sneezies they make a very cute “achoo”! sound. You be amazed of the marvelous chains you can start.

There are two gameplay modes in Sneezies: Classic and Challenge. Classic mode has 45 levels, each getting a little harder every time and Challenge mode has 15. Every level will have a goal of how many Sneezies you need to pop. If you don’t reach the goal you’ll still be able to move on to other levels.

The sounds, music, and graphics are gorgeous and beautiful. The sound effects will make you smile every time and the music is very soothing and tranquil. They will ease your pains and will take you to a world full of fun and cuteness. There are many backgrounds you can play in Sneezies, like a snowy one and a fall themed one.

Overall Sneezies is a superb game to burn a couple hours out of your day. I know some people out there are like” Why should I get this, it will embarrass my manliness”! You won’t care what people think of your manliness once you start playing this. Sneezies is addicting as crack and a game that will overwhelm you with it’s cutness. Great job Antair Games for making this game that outshines many quality games and Chillingo for publishing Sneezies!

Get Tangled and Lost in Zen Bound

Posted by andyl19 on February 27, 2009

199856

One of the most anticipated games of 2009 has just been released a couple days ago. And that game would be Zen Bound. Zen Bound has gotten a lot of hype even before it was released because the devs, Secret Exit, really amazed us with a stunning preview video of it. When Zen Bound came out, I immediately downloaded it. It then became an instant favorite for me.

zen-bound-001

Zen Bound is a game where you don’t have to set high scores, but rather a game in where you can play at your own pace and to sit back and take your shoes off. So the main gameplay is that you paint wooden objects by wrapping them around with rope. Although that might sound simple, don’t be fooled. Zen Bound is actually a very challenging game. But every puzzle is solvable if you use that big brain of yours. Many of the puzzles are based off an animal, but later puzzles are simple geometric shapes. There are currently 51 puzzles in Zen Bound that are categorized in Tree of Reflection and Tree of Challenge.

The controls couldn’t get any simpler. You drag your finger on the screen to rotate the object, use two fingers to spin the object, and tilt your device to adjust the rope direction. If you hear a bell chime when your trying to wrap a wooden object you have painted enough to pass the level. To go on just tie your rope to the glowing nail to advance to another puzzle. You can still go on though. If you hear two more chimes after the first, that will tell you that you’ve reach the maximum goal.

The great thing about the levels in Zen Bound are that they hang off a tree, which is pretty cool and creative. Flowers blossom on the tree after each completed level. Up to three flowers can blossom after a level for three bell chimes. If you get enough flowers for each set of levels, you’ll be able to move on to harder and more complex levels in Zen Bound. Lanterns will light up the branches above once you have reached enough flowers.

The graphics and music in Zen Bound are some of the finest quality I’ve ever seen on the iPhone. The graphics really adapt well with the theme and makes you never want to take your eyes off. I’m serious, it’s like your eyes are literally glued onto your iPhone or iPod with hot glue! These graphics complement the controls very well and make the gaming experience and atmosphere feel comfortable and extraordinary.

The music is also very splendid. The soundtrack in Zen Bound is by “Ghost Monkey”. There is no singing, just calm and soothing sounds that will make you fall fast asleep like a one month year old baby. If you want to experience music that will transport you to a different realm, I suggest you wear your headphones. The music will envelope your whole mind with many binaural sounds and make you avoid all your surroundings. You can sit in front of a plane and you’ll probably won’t even hear it!

zen-bound-005

Zen Bound is easily one of the top games on the iPhone to date. I guarantee you that this game will soon be #1 on iTunes before you know it. Everything is just flawless and executed perfectly. The music, graphics, gameplay, and even the icon. Definitely get this gem because it will be the most fun you’ve ever had on the iPhone by far.
