Trying to combine the various elements of a turn-based strategy (TBS) game with that of a role playing game (RPG) with any level of success is a difficult endeavor for a desktop franchise. Trying to do it in [...]
They say that if stand in the surf at just the right time of day, you can actually hear the ocean talking to you. As the waves crash against the sand and rocks, many have claimed to hear a sort of singing or speaking in the undercurrents, calling them out to sea. Of course, [...]
Do you remember those carefree days when you were a kid, and you used to burn ants with a magnifying glass or (hang on. If you are with PETA, please skip to the next paragraph)…even sometimes you would experiment with small firecrackers and watch tiny legs and antennae fly apart? If you hold those kinds [...]
Pachinko Go! is the latest release from PDAMill, and it has the potential to be one of their biggest releases worldwide, if not in the US. If you’ve played the real game it is easy to see why. The game is full of luck, huge pay outs, and the one thing that slot machines lack [...]
Growing up, one of my favorite super heroes was Captain Marvel. I liked him because he took the best of a number of different heroes, and combined them to create his own super powers. When Billy Batson intoned the word “S HAZAM” he was transformed. Of course, SHAZAM was significant because it represented the heroes [...]
Farkle Dice, and Farkle (Definition) in general, is a game I had never heard of until SmartBox added it to the Launch Giveaway; I’m glad they did. I will generally divide games into two categories: 2-3 minute games that are great for taking a single short break, and ongoing games that you can play [...]
I started playing Sudoku when it hit my daily paper, The Washington Post, several years ago. That was shortly before the craze really swept across the country. Since then, there have been dozens of Sudoku games and variations designed for the Pocket PC. I have played all of them, and reviewed [...]
Dateline: Collosotropolan. “Sir,” the dedicated bureaucrat approached his leader. “Our situation had reached catastrophic proportions. Every inch of our territory has been overbuilt with giant superstructures. Our environment has been destroyed by clouds of pollutants and toxins. We can hardly survive another day. What are your orders?”
“Hmm,” the leader [...]
This is the second in my two-part review of Astraware’s “tribute” to Tetris designer Alexey Pajitnov. In the first part, I looked at the incredibly addictive Mozaki. Today, we will be looking at another extremely addictive color-matching game (imagine that) from Astraware and Alexey Pajitnov, Hexic.
In Hexic, you are faced with a gameboard [...]
Hello. My name is Doug, and I am a child of the 1980’s. Yes, it’s true. I grew up in the timeless decade of pop sensations such as “Come On Eileen”, the Atari 2600, and the TRS-80. To this day, I still love everything about the ’80s from the A-Team (I [...]
When Alexey Pajitnov created the now classic game, Tetris, back in the mid-1980’s, who knew that it would rise to such prominence. Testris has been the subject of so many cpies, variations, ports, and spinoffs, that it has virtually become its own subgenre. I still have fond memories of playing Tetris with my [...]
I think every reviewer has one that got away. That elusive review that you keep meaning to get to, but never quite do. For me, that review was Astraware’s Bejeweled series. So, let’s start with the Why. Why was I so interested in this program? Well, for starters, Bejeweled was [...]
