1.0 out of 5 stars Painfully unplayable., 12 July 2014

Remember Snake on your old Nokia device? It was simple yet addictive. The up down left right controls worked a treat and the game just flowed.
This is the same principle as its retro relation of continuously eating and growing and avoiding getting trapped by bumping into your own body.
Only these days of course we have the ability for better graphics in mobile phone slash smartphone slash tablet games.
Which would be great if it played like the original. Which it doesn't. Joystick style button style tilt or finger swiping the controls are truly awful.
They need to be ultra responsive for this game to flow and work. Instead a drunk driver winning a race at Silverstone is more likely than anyone getting addicted to this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not quite the classic it's hyped up to be., 7 July 2014

This review is from: Cubes vs. Spheres (App)
It's a good game. Great original futuristic concept. Top sound effects music and refreshing minimalist graphics.
However it feels awkward to play on a tablet sized device. The layout just feels wrong. Balls should be loaded automatically instead of having to press a button on the far left of the screen when a split second later your swiping at the middle of the screen to aim and launch the balls. And the tilt controls need fine tuning. Just not responsive enough during an onslaught of cubes. A worthy free app of the day if a little over rated in the description.

After you get to play one short game the developers force you into signing up via Facebook or email to play with friends. Fine except not giving the player the choice not to or even hooking up with other anonymous players online is a big fail.
There's other sliding word games out there without the silly theme too.

Fantastic concept from this start up. That has been perfectly implemented into an app. Massive selection of free courses. A lifelong learners dream. I start a Learning To Learn course in August for 4 weeks can't wait. Sports health biology chemistry theory the arts etc etc it's all here.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lot better than expected., 30 Jun 2014

Works fine on both my devices. A HTC One and Kindle HD.
Once you slide to match a 5 and 3 to make 8 you can use that 8 with another 8 to make 16 you can keep doubling up into the hundreds.
I may have made it sound more complicated than it really is. The hardest part is sliding to accommodate a new cube which is shown to you before making a move. As you don't want to slide in a certain direction which would leave you without any more room for manoeuvre.
The music is a little puerile as is the sound effects. Nothing that can't be fixed in the settings.
Quite a decent puzzle game. For me a keeper.

Except when you creep into the bedroom from behind the doors of a cupboard the idea is to keep baby sleeping whilst you work out a safe path to get your ball back and find the bonus star.
The tutorial level makes it all seem far too easy. Yet once you get going in the real levels you will have to start thinking ahead to not disturb baby.
Lovely presentation. Great graphics. Quite an original puzzle game. Simple tap controls.
I wouldn't mind paying for this which makes it a great free alp of the day.

4.0 out of 5 stars B Movie Theme. A1 Game., 22 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Clash of Puppets (App)
A very good 3D adventure hack n slash type platform game. The developers really have gone to town in designing a game that wouldn't look out of place on a games console.
What they've done better than in any other game I've played on Android/Kindle is incorporating the instructions within the actual game.
The intro is great the graphics are very good and the controls on the whole play well. However it loses a star because when using projectile weapons like the pistol as opposed to the baseball bat it suddenly becomes awkward and frustrating. Mind you all's nearly forgiven when you are given snare traps to lay on the ground to help you kill the Frankensteins.
I'd happily pay for this.

Simple controls offer you all manner of stunt making capabilities. That doesn't mean it's easy though. Timing and judgement is key. Also worth paying attention to the thoughtful sketched plans as well as the course preview. Then it's forward arrow for speed on the right of the screen. Left and right toggle arrows on the left of the screen to keep your bike steady mid air or to perform somersaults. And a red arrow to slow you down and come to a steady halt.
Nicely presented with great graphics. Go get it.

On the now extinct Flappy Bird. Only with this instead of side scrolling 2D graphics with obstacles to avoid you have to complete rotations within a circle.
Probably more difficult than Flappy Bird. It looks neat with the flat graphic style and pastel shades. For the uninitiated to this style of game play you have to time tapping the screen to keep the bird flying and avoid the obstacles. A lot more difficult than it sounds.

Bought for my Pentax X5 bridge camera A good snug fit with a handy velcro divider offering you extra room for spare batteries which wont then mean them knocking against the camera Offers nice padded protection Comes with a front pocket thats hidden under the flap over when the main case is zipped up The adjustable shoulder strap has a nice dimpled rubber grip to it for it to pretty much stick to your shoulder Not a leather case but for the money its a decent case
