THE aMAZEing Labyrinth is a lot of fun. I just feel bad that I missed the original board game! With complete single-player and multiplayer modes, it offers a wide-variety of gameplay. Pass-and-play style multiplayer is rare and much appreciated as well! Not all of my friends have iPhones, and when they do, they rarely have the same games as me. With THE aMAZEing Labyrinth, this isn’t a problem. The game is $3.99 for the iPhone version and $5.99 for the HD, iPad version. I think it would be more appropriately priced lower, but board game fans shouldn’t let the price deter them. If you like board games, you should give it a try!
First Proud Owner of Galaxy Nexus in US is Steve Woz!
Steve Wozniak visited Google to receive a Samsung Galaxy Nexus recently. Looks like he got to pose with Google staff and the ICS statue as well. I like that he seems to really love technology and not just Apple.
Girl with a Heart of (yes, that’s the whole title), provided to me by Bent Spoon Games, is a wonderful new game that I had the pleasure of playing recently. I played it on the iPhone, but it’s available for $2.99 on iOS and Android and for $5.99 on Mac and PC. It’s an interactive narrative telling a fantastic story. No one playing it will stumped. No one will find themselves thinking he or she isn’t good enough. The main character in the game must overcome challenges, but the player can simply experience the story. Despite a couple small, technical problems, it’s a great game!
Crazy Escape, provided to me by Bulkypix and KoolFing, is a fun new action and puzzle game for iOS. It’s also a path drawing game, although that honestly didn’t even enter my mind until I sat down to write this review. It features an odd story too; you control penguins driving an off-road vehicle. (Of course. What else would they drive?) Your goal is to drive around, rescuing sheep from wolves. Why are penguins even involved? Who cares!
I just started playing this, and I’m enjoying it. It’s definitely some fan service, which is fine by me. I’m a big fan, so it works. Ocarina of Time 3D
One dungeon down! Infamous 2
I beat the game in hard mode with good, but I’d like to go back and do it with evil karma. I also wanted to max my good character, but grinding XP is taking far too long. World of Warcraft
Of course, there’s always more to do in WoW. We finished normal mode Firelands, but there’s still more gearing, PVPing, questing, and other stuff to do. More
And then there are a bunch of games I need to start still!
Gears of War 3
Ivy the Kiwi?
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Kirby’s Return to Dreamland
Frogger Decades for iOS, provided to me by Konami, celebrates Frogger’s 30th anniversary. At its core, it features the same idea that Frogger has always had. However, it adds many things, iterating on the classic in a respectful way. I like where they took it.
Last night, I had a dream in which I upgraded my computer. I got a new motherboard, CPU, RAM, and graphics card. It was glorious, and I was quite happy. I awoke to find my room awash in soft blue light.
This damn screen was on my monitor.
Last week, a terrible thing happened. When Pete and I got to his house, we found that there was no power. That means no entertainment. We sat in the living room, and James joined us because his room was too dark without power. I guess he didn’t want to open his blinds. (I don’t know!)
Anyways, I saved the day by having a smartphone!
More specifically, my good friends Walken and Batman saved us.
