Thingy Blox for the iPad is certainly going to be one of the next hit games. Being just released June 9th 2011, this game is already making a name for itself. It will certainly take up hours of your time. It is a fun game that you will be able to play by yourself or with friends. Play all the different modes to find new ways to challenge yourself and others.

FDG Entertainment has really come up with a new twist on what at first seems to be a familiar game play. It may remind you of other games that you have played so this will help you understand the basic concept. However, when you begin to play Thingy Blox you will quickly see that you have never played a game like this before. It is very easy to play, yet; if you feel that you do need to read through the instructions they are offered at the beginning of the game. But since this is such a simple game to quickly understand the concept, don’t waste your time reading the instructions. Those are valuable minutes you could be using to play the game. This is one of those simple but yet very addicting games that will be sweeping across the nation by the end of the month. Read the rest of this entry »


Review: Save Toshi Deluxe!

Ok, I’m not gonna beat around the bush here…this game is weird.  W-E-I-R-D. The concept is seriously just kinda out there, but as most good iPhone games go, this thing will just pull you in. Save Toshi DX is really just a great game for throwing on some headphones, zoning out, blasting the music, and saving the small asian girl time and time again… Read the rest of this entry »

Nyan Cat: Lost in Space, iPhone games, isTom Games

The great thing about iPhone or iPad games is that there are so many to choose from. The bad thing about iPhone or iPad games is that there are so many to choose from. Many claim to be fun and claim to provide hours of entertainment, only to disappoint once they are downloaded. That is not the case with Nyan Cat: Lost in Space, however, consider yourself warned this game is very addictive. You may even find yourself singing along with the theme song in no time at all.

Nyan Cat: Lost in Space is basically a simple came of a cat flying through space collecting as much food as possible. But once you start playing you will see that there is much more to it than that. You are able to gather different tools that will assist you to collecting food faster or more efficiently. Read the rest of this entry »


Review: MECAPIX

iPhone shooter games, Massive Finger, MECAPIXMecapix, from Robotalism Games, is an innovative and highly entertaining mash-up of genres. Take some Tetris-like puzzle pieces, add some shooter action, the likes of Galaga, and throw in the pattern recognition found in something like Donkey Kong, and you can begin to envision what to expect in Mecapix. The game is obviously a loving homage to the classics of the 80s; however, like many of those favorites, the difficulty of Mecapix can be unforgiving for those not willing to give it their maximum attention.

Mecapix is a simple concept at its core. Various arrangements of blocks (called Mecas) fall from the top of the screen. The player must draw his or her own block figures (PIXes) at the bottom of the screen to send upwards and combat the falling arrangements. For each block that gets past your defenses, you lose a life. Lose too many lives, and it’s game over. Simple, yes, but Mecapix intensifies the complexity as you progress through the levels.

Review: High Noon

Alright all you aspring bandits out there…mount up for one of the most addicting games that I’ve yet to find for my iPhone.  And that game is….(drum roll)….High Noon!  I absolutely love it when an iPhone developer gets everything about a game right.  From the overall look to the ease of gameplay to the price point, this thing is just awesome.

The game itself is pretty straightforward.  It’s a one-on-one multiplayer western style shooter.  It takes advantage of the iPhone’s anonymous multiplayer features and allows you to challenge other players across the globe.  The point of the game is to become the most hated/feared bandit in all of the old west by increasing your level through repeated duel victories.  Each time you pair up there is a specified “reward” if you kill the other.  As you get more infamous (kill more folks) your level and your reward will all continue to rise.

Angle Bounce, iPhone game, Scylla Games

The afterlife has been thrown into disarray with demons and angels scattered about the universe. It is your job, in Angel Bounce, to restore the powers that be to their rightful afterlife locations. Angels and demons both fall from the sky and you, acting as a cloud, choose to bounce the angels back to heaven and allow the demons to fall to the depths of hell. The story line is interesting; basically there has been a cosmic upset and angels and demons have been bounced around. They need to get back to their rightful homes and it is your job to get them there.

Angel Bounce is a pretty basic and easy to navigate game. It has all been seen before and the mechanism is nothing special. You navigate the cloud across the screen to bounce the angels back to heaven, much like many other app store games. The only catch is you must avoid the demons that are also falling from the sky. When you bounce the demons back into heaven they are considered “saved” and will lower your overall score. If you happen to let an angel fall into hell they are considered “condemned” and it also lowers your score. Read the rest of this entry »
