Turkeys Revenge — Shoot a Pilgrim!

Turkeys Revenge is a clever adaptation of the fair midway Shoot the Duck game. In this game, you, the turkey are the hunter. Armed with a gun that shoots candy corn, you tap your target to shoot, or drag the site to “ping” your target. Complete with that midway pellet on metal target ping, your targets fall backwards and your points rack up. The game increases in difficulty by increasing the number of pilgrims and the number of trees that they can hide behind, but... Read More

All a-buzz about Necta Collecta

Welcome to the meadow.  You’re job, young bee is to collect nectar from all the pretty wild flowers.  But you should only gather nectar from one type of flower to make it easier to collect.  Buzz around, pick up nectar, score lots of points and earn coins. The game uses the concept that each flower’s nectar sticks together better if you only collect from one flower type.  I uses this to make you have to hunt for the right pattern of flowers to hop from one to the... Read More

Kiki’s Koi-Koi – a Japanese card game.

Welcome to Kiki’s Koi-Koi a game based on the Japanese card game Koi-Koi. This game does an excellent job presenting and playing a card game.  The animations are very well done.  The tutorials and help are outstanding and are great for someone trying to learn the game. Where I struggle with  the game is the terminology.  Even with great help and tutorials, I still guess a lot and depend on the hints to play the game.  This is not a fault of the game because they do... Read More

Pig Maker – Build a Pig!

Meet Alfred.  Alfred is a pig… a pig that you could have created… If you had the free iOS app “Pig Maker”  by TriSail Enterprises. This is your basic “Build-a-bear” game but its much cheaper than going to the mall and stuffing fluff into a furry sack.  Though really I suppose these types of games really owe their heritage to Mr. Potato Head, our childhood favorite of creating different characters from a set of eyes, noses, mouths and outfits. The... Read More

Tomato Pace – Review

Tomato Pace is a fairly simple game based on a simple idea: Get the Tomato through a dangerous maze of threats, picking up as many scoring objects as possible while getting to the home base.   In other words: Tag!  Of course we’ve played and loved these games for years.  Remember Frogger? This game has a theme of a tomato who’s been disconnected from its vine and it needs to get back to the vine, saving as many little tomatoes as possible. Using the devices touch... Read More

jailem – a Trap the Ball game

Jailem is a cute game based on a western cowboy/cops and robbers theme.  The game itself is a simple one.  A series of balls goes bouncing around the screen and you draw lines to limit where the balls can go.  Once you have a ball isolated by itself, its trapped.  Isolate all the balls in their own cells and win the level. When you capture two balls in the same grid  and can’t isolate them, the game ends. You are presented with four different villains with different... Read More

Goop! A fun game without sling shots!

I don’t know about you, but I’m just a little bit tired of Angry Birds knock offs.  Bird games, pig games, sling shots, oh my. Now to give Angry Birds it’s credit, it was cute.  There was a very annoying bad guy. We were allowed to be mad.  Music enhances the game as does the sound effects. So I’m happy to see a cute game with wonderful graphics a fun sound track and good special effects that’s not a clone of Angry Birds.   “Goop”... Read More

Surge! A fast paced tap game. Its free on Saturday 7/30!

Welcome to Surge!!! An interesting take on the basic “Whack-a-mole” game. Things pop up and you try to tap them before they go away. In this case, you are presented several targets at once and you don’t have very long to tap them. Each progressive level changes up the locations of where the targets pop up. When you have perfect levels, you get to carry your points over into the Surge.  Your scoring increases considerably if you can manage another perfect round,... Read More

Cavorite – a must have platform game!

Game play trailers, the little short preview movies can tell a prospective customer a lot about the game. I had seen the video for this game a couple of weeks before the review request came in. And it was “meh, another platform game of pushing blocks around”. Boy was I wrong! Looking at this game live instead of an over processed over compressed YouTube video makes a world of difference. The graphics of this game are *H*O*T* and look much better on the phone than... Read More

Task-Master: A puzzling puzzler.

Welcome to Task-Master.  This is a puzzle game and part of the puzzle is figuring out how to play it.  The game provides very little in the way of how to play and that in its-self is the challenge.  For instance, one level you get a single dot on the screen and you are supposed to try different gestures and iPhone actions to try and figure out how to solve the level. Some levels are about tapping, others about pinch-zooming, others about exploring multi-tap. Puzzle games are... Read More
