5.0 out of 5 stars We Need Reinforcements!, 29 April 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The packaging states 'Over 500 Stickers' and there are indeed over 500 stickers (there are 512 stickers to be exact). One thing really worth noting is that these stickers are paper. I knew this before I bought them and it's the very reason I bought this brand. The package they come in is great also as it's resealable and keeps them flat and protected while still allowing easy access and despite what the one star reviews say, they are easily sticky enough to do their job without being too sticky.

*Top Tip*
To ensure perfect alignment when sticking them, simply put the tip of a pen (or pencil) through the hole and place the sticker over the tip and onto the page.


Kaurava Empire Vol.3, The : The Loaded Dice of Shakuni (Campfire Graphic Novels)
Kaurava Empire Vol.3, The : The Loaded Dice of Shakuni (Campfire Graphic Novels)
by Jason Quinn
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.14

5.0 out of 5 stars Liar's Dice, 7 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
In this, the third volume of The Kauvara Empire, the story focuses on Shakuni and his manipulations of other characters and events in the greater story, explaining the reasons behind his actions and his overall endgame. I've greatly enjoyed all three volumes though I personally thought that this wasn't as good as the first two volumes, though I'd still recommend getting it if you already have the first two, for a greater understanding of the characters and story.

The fully painted artwork is great, just like volumes 1 & 2 and gives the reader a sense of depth and motion, which is exactly what is needed when telling a story using a visual media. I highly recommend buying this graphic novel series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vengeance Is Mine, 6 April 2016

In this, the second volume of The Kauvara Empire, we are introduced to Ashwatthama, the son of a weaponsmith. Much like the first volume, the artwork is simply superb. The story centers around Ashwatthama's life, from his humble beginnings, right through to the choices he makes that, in the end, seal his fate. The story is set, before, during and after the events of the first volume... and much like the other two volumes, you don't actually need to read them to read this one, as all three graphic novel volumes are stand-alone stories, though all three stories are interconnected by sharing some of the same characters and events.

It is advised to buy all three volumes if you want a greater understanding of the complex story and the vast cast of characters. I personally thought that the first volume was just a little better... though having said that, I like the character Ashwatthama the best out of all the main characters & sub-characters in all three volumes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two Princes, 6 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having bought and read quite a few graphic novels published by Campfire, my favorites would have to be The Kauvara Empire volumes... having read all three currently available. The story and characters are based on an ancient Indian epic (Mahabharata), though not having read it I don't know how true to the source material it is, though obviously the setting has been changed to a more futuristic one, but whether the rest is or isn't acurate doesn't detract from the fact that this is a truly great graphic novel.

The story centers around two rival princes and their family members from two distinct branches of the same family (the Kauravas and the Pandavas), both fighting in a civil war for different reasons, one side fighting for justice and the other fighting for honour. The story is gripping right to the bitter end, but it's the artwork that truly shines through here, from the vast cityscapes right through to the bold character designs.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Much Bacon On This HOG!, 23 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This isn't a HOG (hidden object game), this is your typical 'Point n' Click' adventure game. Granted there are elements of a HOG here, but they aren't the backbone of the game, they instead break up the game along with the odd puzzle. Some of the puzzles are incredibly fiendish, I honestly can't see this game being aimed at children, though admittedly, there is a 'Hint' button and once pressed will auto-solve any puzzle.

The game isn't without flaws, the English translation is a little sketchy at best and sometimes it's unclear as to what's needed to be done to progress. I chose 'Normal' difficulty and a total completion took around 2.5 - 3 hours. Overall it's definitely worth a play-through.

This review is from: OI File Manager (App)
If you have an Amazon Fire then this app (or one similar) is pretty much essential. I've tried a lot (not all) of the free file managing apps available to fire users and I keep returning to this one. I've found that if you download one or many files from the internet, whether it's an image or mp3, after you've downloaded it there is no way to access it on the fire except through one of these types of apps.

Strangely enough, Amazon didn't think it wise to include a file managing app amongst all the pre-installed (un-deleteable) apps.

5.0 out of 5 stars Puzzling, 16 Feb. 2016

This review is from: Quell (App)
This is a really good puzzler, with its mellow gameplay and fiendish (at times) puzzles. I sometimes catch myself moving my finger around planning my moves out and mumbling to myself, like I'm casting some sort of spell... it must look odd to onlookers, but I'm usually that engaged in the game I simply wouldn't care if it did.

As with most games, it can be played several ways, you could just try to complete the levels, or you could strive for the perfect move count for every level and then there are the hidden gems in the game, one hidden in each level. Well worth a download.

This review is from: Coin Dozer (App)
This is one of those games that has had way too much attention and hype. In the games description it says "The game you’ve spent countless hours playing at the fair" ...I don't think so, that one actually had sides and didn't cheat half as much as this one does... and don't get me started on the unrealistic moon physics. One to avoid even for free.

This review is from: Chronicles of Albian FREE (App)
I don't know why I like these hidden object games (HOGs) so much, but I do and this one is really good. The main game consists of finding certain objects within a picture cluttered with objects. The games levels are broken up with the inclusion of several different puzzle styles, such as a sudoku puzzle or a jigsaw type puzzle. I did however encounter a bug that sometimes upon completion of a level the game would quit and I'd have to restart it again.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's About Numbers, 9 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sudoku Puzzle World (App)
This is great sudoku game, I really like the art-style and the backgrounds are a nice touch and don't distract the player. I do have one gripe with the game and that's the random clicking sound after I've made a move... It makes a click sound-effect when you make a correct move and that's normal, but then a while after it does it again, which is irritating... so much so that I muted the sound.
