1.0 out of 5 stars NOT RETRO, just rubbish............., 28 Jan 2014

This review is from: GP Retro (App)
I lived through the early days of home computing, from ZX80/81, Spektrum, BBC, Atari ST, and many more, most still with me and still working. This program ( I cannot bring myself to call it a game) is one of the very worst attempts I have seen at recapturing those days. Deleting NOW!!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Jury is out!, 23 Jan 2014

This review is from: Mythic Mining (App)
There are many games that have superb graphics but poor game play. And........there are fewer games that have simple graphics yet rise above to give an immersive experience. Those gaming in the 80s will remember Boulderdash. Simple yet highly addictive.

Where does this game sit?

It's NO Boulderdash, yet the basic idea is very similar. Mine for gems and gold, but this time against computer controlled opponents.
Bizarrely when you mine under a rock it does not fall down after it gets a clear space under it. This would add some needed pizzazz!

Are the simple graphics a problem? No

Is the gameplay addictive? Well, no not really.

Free App? OK for a bit of light none too taxing relief. Pay App? Not in its current state!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace Arachnids!!, 22 Jan 2014

ONE or two here think the bonus levels are more fun than the main game. Each to their own........

I think this is a nicely weighted game that contrasts nicely the planned approach of the main game sections where as it progresses you need to account for the movement pattern of the spiders more and more closely, and then the frenetic bonus sections..

Yes, it's "only" really an upgrade of previous iterations, but it's a very good one,and while I got it as an App of the Day, it's worth considering even if not free, and I don't often think that.

Tested on Kindle Fire, worked perfectly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Impressive but as of review date flawed, 20 Jan 2014

I can see a lot of uses for this utility, but sadly it has flaws that make it frustrating.

For starters, the control interface has to be learned, it's not very intuitive.

Secondly, it should be possible to:-

1. Change sex without losing the current pose.
2. Set it so movements are limited by body impact, so for example an arm does not just disappear into the chest.

As a test I tried to set a male pose so he was using his hands to cover his embarrassment, but it proved MUCH too awkward and time consuming.

It's a brave attempt but as of now not quite there. Try it and see what YOU think!

4.0 out of 5 stars IT DOES WORK!!!!!, 31 Dec 2013

Maybe not the most intuitive way to end a race, but it DOES WORK!!!

WHEN you cross the finish line and you get a race finished graphic, stay inside the red course boundary and assess your time. If you think it needs improvement, use the circular go back button and go again, but if it's good, go to the main menu where it'll score you and if good enough allows you on to the next course.

Nice game, WELL worth having!!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth a try with a little effort!, 26 Nov 2013

Have we degenerated so far that we have to be spoon fed everything? A tutorial is easily found, the knowledge of Italian needed small and with some TINY effort it is really worth a try (and I'm not usually a card game person!)

2.0 out of 5 stars Asteroids goes thud..............., 10 Nov 2013

THE THUD BEING ME HITTING THE DELETE!

OK, it runs smoothly enough, but the graphics seem to have been designed by an Optician needing trade. Gameplay area too small, contrast too minimal.

THE major difference from the start is the ability to Fire other than where the ship is pointing. This could be good, but the lack of position feedback from two touchpad areas at once kills the playability.

Can't comment on sound as I never use it for games !!!

It's a brave attempt to be different but as is at time of test does not quite make it to be a keeper. Tested on Kindle Fire.

Prevents some legal moves!!! Extremely frustrating to have to lose because the program decides seemingly randomly you cannot move. Have not suffered any delays though. Tested on Kindle Fire.

It won't win any prizes for originality, but it is quite playable, well paced, and good fun, give it a try.

3.0 out of 5 stars OK, what now?, 26 Sep 2013

So you have to find the matches, be it same, link, or opposite, but completing a level ends up as swapping obvious links to not so obvious ones to complete. There is oddly some satisfaction doing this though it's all very low key, but would I pay for it? NO way!

There is no problem exiting screens on a Kindle Fire.

Will I Go back to it? Oddly, yes, though I can't explain why!!!
