LINE Cookie Run 100 Free Crystals Code

May 28th, 2014 by

Cookie_Run_title

Cookie Run Season 2 has started on the LINE network, and with it comes a lot of goodies.

The Sorcerer Cookie brings some powerful Coin Magic to the table. His pet, the Grimiore, should help tons of players get new high scores. Obstacles move and generally try to throw off your timing. It’s slowly starting to look more and more like the Cookie Run I’ve been playing over on the for Kakao network for some time.

To prove it, one of the best features shows up in a Coupon Code. To enter a code, touch the Gear icon on the bottom left of your Rankings screen. Scroll down and tap on the “COUPON” button. Your browser will open up with a code entry box.

Enter the following code to get 100 free crystals: cookierun2ndstory

100 Crystals: 5 Rainbow Eggs, 4 Supreme Treasures, or 15 Treasure Slots? Decisions...

100 Crystals: 5 Rainbow Eggs, 4 Supreme Treasures, or 15 Treasure Slots? Decisions, decisions…

That’s “Cookie Run 2nd Story” for those keeping track at home or may want to pass it along to friends. I got it in three guesses, as the code on the for Kakao version was COOK 2RUN 2NDS TORY last year.

Act now! This code, a $10 value, expires on June 5th at 4PM. Run. Run as fast as you can!

Review – Ace Fishing: Wild Catch (iOS/Android)

May 26th, 2014 by

ace_fishing_title

Ace Fishing, by South Korean developer Com2uS, is their latest attempt at bringing digestible sports to mobile sets. With a pedigree that includes Apple Hall of Fame inductee HOMERUN BATTLE 3D on their resume, they clearly know their stuff.

Is Ace Fishing a catch, or is this one we should be throwing back?

C is for Cookie Run Erasers

As a teacher and a parent, I can’t help but love this little slice of nerdvana in the picture above. Here we have another example of Cookie Run’s popularity in South Korea.

Here we have Cookie Run erasers, as found inside a toy capsule machine near South Korean elementary school. Each pull costs 100 won, or about 10 American cents, though there are other random toys interspersed within. Still, it’s more killer than filler in the one I use.

I remember buying car-shaped erasers for a quarter apiece from my school’s morning supply store back in the third grade. I’m not a car guy, so it seems wholly unnecessary now. However, boring things shaped like cool things? HELL YES! That’s cool-by-association!

Marvel Puzzle Quest – Healing without Health Packs

March 30th, 2014 by

 

I love Marvel Puzzle Quest. Admittedly, I’m obsessed with the game. Since it just surpassed 2 million downloads, I thought now would be as good a time as any to cover the Spider-Man heal in the game.

The Spider-Man heal was covered in our Marvel Puzzle Quest guide. However, that was for new players without a Spider-Man of their own to keep them in the game. With this, you’ll be able to conserve your health packs for when you really need them.

To do this yourself, you’ll need a bare minimum of two Spider-Man covers: 1 Web Bandages, 1 All Tied Up. The more of them you have, the better off you’ll be. I run a 3/5/5 Spider-Man build as my main character. Other characters are dictated by the event you’re playing at the time.

Also, if you don’t have Spider-Man classic, Black Widow (Original) works in a pinch. You’ll get the added benefit of AP disruption from Aggressive Recon, too, which can be a game changer.

Cookie Run for Kakao goes missing from US App Store.

March 20th, 2014 by
The dreaded Cookie Run update screen that leads to no update for US iTunes users.

This Cookie Run update screen leads to no update for US iTunes users.

This, ladies and gentlemen, may be a bit of a cautionary tale. Last week, Cookie Run (쿠키런) for Kakao mysteriously disappeared from the US App Store. As a free-to-play game with in-app purchases, of which my daughter and I have made in the past, the lack of information is concerning. The game is rendered completely unplayable for anyone using the “for Kakao” network on a US iTunes account.

Update: It’s been confirmed as removed from the Canadian and United Kingdom App Store, as well.

In its place is LINE Cookie Run. There’s a good chance that Devsisters, the Cookie Run developer licensed the game out for use in the United States. That’s all fine and dandy for those in the new market, but it also leaves users such as myself on the outside looking in.

While it’s safe to assume this affects a very small percentage of the estimated 120,000 United States citizens living in South Korea, I know of a handful of people that are pissed right now with no way to vent. I’m sure those people know others, what with this being a social game and all. I’m here to give a voice for the voiceless.

Review: Spell Quest – Grimm’s Journey (iOS/Android)

February 9th, 2014 by

spell_quest_title

When looking at Spell Quest – Grimm’s Journey, gamers will likely be divided into two primary groups: those who hate it because it’s basically Bookworm Adventures or those who love it because it’s basically Bookworm Adventures.

I’ve been saying for years that Bookworm Adventures would be a perfect fit for iPhone or iPad. That kind of gives away which grouping I fall into, doesn’t it?

PopCap had their chance. Now it’s time for the Bacon Bandits to shine.

Real Racing 3 to FINALLY get Real-Time Multiplayer… on iOS only

December 12th, 2013 by

rr3_multi_update

Electronic Arts and Firemonkeys are about to make a lot of racing fans either really happy or really sad with its next update.

In addition to the two new cars, the Lamborghini Veneno and McLaren P1, the game is finally getting the much sought after real-time multiplayer in addition to the standard asynchronous time-shifted events.

The catch? Real-Time Multiplayer uses GameCenter and, thus, is available only to iOS players. And, thus, the great divide widens as if millions of Android users cried out in anger and were suddenly ignored. You may as well get your popcorn ready, because the “statistically, more people use Android” outrageous butthurt festival is about to begin over on their Google Play page.

Marvel Puzzle Quest: Dark Reign Tips and Tricks Guide

November 24th, 2013 by

mpq_guide_headerMarvel: Puzzle Quest is the latest surprisingly-enjoyable game based upon the Marvel franchise. If you love the RPG mechanics of D3 Publisher’s Puzzle Quest: Challenge of the Warlords but think it would be cooler with comic book heroes, then this could well be the game for you. It certainly tickles my nerdy fancy.

However, while there’s a lot of fun to be had for free, it’s easy to feel like you’re hitting a pay wall early on. Here’s a few guidelines to follow to maximize your enjoyment in the free-to-play world.
