Pinball Planet
Pinball Planet
Price: £1.49

3.0 out of 5 stars So so game, not very exciting, 25 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Pinball Planet (App)
First of all, I have to say that the menu isn't really all that confusing. You need to click the challenge button (the trophy at the bottom) to earn 10 stars which can be used to unlock a pinball game. In fact, the menu system, which is a planet, is pretty cool and looks sweet.

What really matters is gameplay, and this is what let's the game down. It is not anywhere as good as the old Microsoft Space Cadet pinball. The gameplay is slow, the ball doesn't bounce off of things very well, and the 3D graphics aren't very good either. Near the corners the ball looks almost like an egg.

This review is from: IMPOSSIBLE ROAD (App)
It really is too difficult to be any fun. If they had some easier levels or something you might be able to get the hang of it, but it starts off in what I can only assume is full difficulty.
I gave it two stars because it was a good idea with nice graphics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hope for the hopeless, 7 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Return To Paradise (MP3 Download)
This is a classic album from Randy Stonehill, which really stands the test of time. In a world of positive thinking and manufactured goodness, Stonehill remembers that life can turn on some people. The songs are dripping with the sorrow and disappointment that life can bring, but backed up with a strong hope that there is something greater out there. His faith in Jesus offers hope for the hopeless and life for losers, in a collection of beautifully written songs.

1.0 out of 5 stars The screen is just awful., 3 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought that I'd gamble £35 for this tablet, so I wasn't expecting much. But the screen is actually difficult to look at. Writing is literally fuzzy, and the contrast changes when you tilt the view by a few degrees. You know what it feels like when you look at a 3D screen? You get that feeling but this is in 2D. I expected low resolution, but this is an entirely different problem. I use a lot of different electronic equipment from cheap to high-end, and this is shockingly bad, even for the price.

I understand that you get what you pay for, but even £35 is far too much for this.

5.0 out of 5 stars mouldy India that I know and love. Merryn Glover is a wonderful story teller, 22 Sept. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A House Called Askival (Hardcover)
I started reading this book on a Friday evening, and didn't put it down until Sunday night. Having grown up in Mussoorie and have a deep attachment to India, this book was just a dream for me. The history in the book is accurate, but the story telling is what drew me in. As I read it I was transported to a wet, rainy, stormy, mouldy India that I know and love. Merryn Glover is a wonderful story teller, and I would highly recommend this book to anyone. I truly enjoyed it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the usual Bollywood film, 24 Aug. 2014

This review is from: Talaash (MP3 Download)
This is very serious for a Bollywood film; there is music but no singing by the characters.

A car crashes without cause in a spot where two cars have crashed before. The previous cases were closed due to lack of evidence, but this case involves a famous film star. The main character searches for answers to the mystery while his wife searches for answers to the sorrow in their life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds our expectations, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My sons have been putting aside little bits of money ever since they heard about the Wii U, and we finally got the Lego City Undercover premium pack, with Rayman Legends. The graphics are a lot better than the old Wii, and the two games this comes with are both a lot of fun.

As many others have said, Lego City Undercover seems to be the best Lego game yet. Not every game makes much use of the gamepad screen, but Lego City has a few good uses. It has a map and a video communicator with the police base. It even has a scanning option which is fantastic: when you look at the gamepad you see through all the buildings around you. When you move the gamepad around, the view moves as you would expect it to. Meanwhile, your figure on the screen is holding his own gamepad and mirroring your movements.

As this is a premium pack, it comes with a nice charging stand for the gamepad. There have been a lot of complaints online about the short life of the battery on the gamepad, but if you dock it whenever you're not using it, there seems to be no problem. You can also play with it plugged in, if you plan to play more than 3 hours at a time. As far as the long-term life of the battery, there is nothing wrong with recharging it when it's half empty. Also, if you reduce the brightness of the gamepad a notch or two, it will extend the time between charges.

I am very pleased to be able to use Netflix and Love Film through the Wii U, because it is HDMI so it looks much better than it did on the old Wii.

Another feature of the gamepad is the ability to play games while someone else watches TV. My son has played Rayman Legends this way a few times, and found it to be quite fun. You still have to be within range of the console, but it allows for more sharing of the TV.

There is a lot still to explore, such as going on the Nintendo Network, using the gamepad as a TV remote, etc. But so far, everything has exceeded our expectations.


Hori Officially Licensed Precision Screen Filter (Nintendo Wii U)

5.0 out of 5 stars a good quality protector, a bit overpriced, 29 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this based on the positive reviews, and am very pleased with the product. It is well made, feels solid and yet has no effect on the visuals or use of the gamepad screen.

I was going to be impressed with the attachment method, but unfortunately it didn't work out well for me. Many reviews mentioned that there is a lot of spare space around the edges, and this caused me my problem because mine fits almost perfectly. So I used the attachment methods and then discovered that it was ever so slightly over the right edge, and so wouldn't stick down entirely on that edge. This is where the quality of the protector came into play. I was able to peel the whole thing off and stick it on again, starting at the very edge as I would have done with any other screen protector. It worked fine, but there were a few bubbles left this time. Fortunately, it also comes with a little piece of cardboard designed to squeeze bubbles out from below the filter. It worked a treat, and everything is as perfect as could be.

I was at Game yesterday, and noticed they have Wii U gamepad screen protectors for just £1. I can't say how good they are, but I was a bit disappointed to have spent £4.50 for this one on Amazon. However, it is essentially perfect, and it is probably worth an additional £3.50 to protect your gamepad without interfering with gameplay.

2.0 out of 5 stars a poor book for learning, 21 Nov. 2013
I was excited when I started working with this book since, like other reviewers, I too learned a lot about programming years ago by typing in game programs from magazines. However, while the author is a good programmer, he is not a very good teacher. If you get the free version of this book, then it's good value. But if your're going to spend money, look elsewhere.

A good programming book will explain a concept, give you a chunk of code to try it on, and then move on to the next bit of code. Repeat this a few times, and you both understand how the code works, and you have built a little game. An example of a book which teaches code properly is Python Programming for the Absolute Beginner, by Michael Dawson.

What this book does is present a program in its entirety. You can type it all in or download it from the author's website. The problem is that it gets very tedious typing in 50 odd lines of code when you don't understand what it's doing. Then the author explains the whole program section by section. Again this gets somewhat tedious. I gave up after typing in 5 pages of code for the hangman game.

It would have been far more sensible, and easier on the learner, to have the learner type the programs one section at a time, followed by the explanation of that section.

If you are a somewhat experienced programmer looking for a cookbook of ideas, this might be useful. But if you want to learn to program, then look elsewhere.
