Review: Hoplite (iOS)

Hoplite is a strategy/roguelike that seems simplistic at first sight, but quickly bares its fangs. Does it get too difficult too quickly, or is it worthwhile?

Just a few hours until Flappy Bird is no more.

Likely inundated by his sudden rise from obscurity to the top of the App Charts and the subsequent fame that comes with it, Vietnamese Flappy Bird developer Dong Nguyen is doing the only thing he can to get his life back to normal.

Dong Nguyen stated on his Twitter account, @dongatory, that he’ll be removing it from the App Store in 22 hours. That was 19 hours ago. So by my math, that means you’ve got something like um… airspeed velocity… obviously Mario World… carry the remainder… Tootsie Roll Tootsie Pop… one… two… three. Yes, you have three hours left. Thanks, Mister Owl!

Flappy Bird currently brings in about $50,000 a day in ad revenue according to this interview from The Verge, but sports stars and lotto winners can tell you that mo’ money equals mo’ problems. There’s no telling how many family members have already hit him up for cash or how many reporters have reached out for an interview about this game whose reviews seem about on par with The Mountain Three Wolf Moon shirt over on Amazon.

Way to go, Internet. You made a guy rich and possibly break down.

If you, like me, have somehow managed to avoid the Flappy Bird phenomenon, now’s your last chance to do it.

Let’s see what all this fuss is about. And… download…

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

February 9th, 2014 by

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.

this is not a testThis Is Not A Test, an interactive apocalyptic comic book, tasks you with making the right choices to survive in a world given over to chaos. Are the repeated playthroughs worth the storyline payoff?

Review: Symmetrain (iOS)

symmetrain
Symmetrain is a cool concept — spot the missing items in a mirrored landscape as your train moves faster and faster — but in an App Store flooded with endless-runner games, does Symmetrain steam ahead of the rest?

Mark A. Brooks Played A Lot Of Games In 2013

games finished 2013

Looking back, I probably crammed in more gaming last year than any other, which is crazy, because it didn’t feel like that much. But the list speaks for itself.
