casual_templerun2a

This month, Imangi Studios brings its sequel to the crowd favorite Temple Run. While this new game still does not feature a central story beyond petty thievery from a temple of demented monkeys (replaced now with one, behemoth-sized primate) it maintains its original fast-paced game play and improves on a number of its key components to the enjoyment for new players and veteran marathoners.

[Review] Hero Academy (iOS)

review_heroacademy1

I, like many of you other on-the-go gamers, became addicted to Words With Friends, Hanging With Friends, and all the other turn-based word games. But I also soon became saturated by notifications because I was playing around 20 games at a time. Maybe it’s just me, but the point where games become a chore is approximately the point where they are no longer fun. Though these types of games are great on cell phones, I think that playing games with words might just be a bit too leapster learning for me. I wanted a turn-based game with more… action. And Hero Academy was just what I asked for.

In a world probably at the brink of destruction, the majority of the population has been transformed to evil zombies due to a virus, radiation, or something of the sort.

Contrary to popular belief, monkeys don’t always throw feces. Although I’ve never met a monkey that throws fruit, I’m sure they’re out there somewhere; MEDL mobile has not only captured his essence, they have armed you as well. If you’re ready to take down this primate bully then let’s go!

For this week’s Casual Friday I’m looking at Backflip Studios’ newest hit Shape Shift. It already has thousands of downloads but is it really any different from the already popular Bejewled Blitz?

[Review Rebuttal] Hector: Badge of Carnage

Badge of Carnage Shot 1

If you had read Jhonny’s review of Hector: Badge of Carnage, you were probably in one of two groups. Either you’re going to treat the game like the plague and never go near it, or you’re thinking of the hate mail you’ll be sending him for such a blasphemous review. Personally, I’d be part of the latter if it weren’t for the fact that I could tell him off in real life. After trying the game for myself, I found that it was one of the most creative point-and-click experiences I’ve ever had and literally had me clapping my hands at the solutions to some of the puzzles.

[Review] Hector: Badge of Carnage

Available on: iPad; Publisher: Telltale Games; Developer: Telltale Games; Players: 1; Released: May 12, 2011; ESRB: NA; Official Website

20110601-120838.jpg

Hector: Badge of Carnage is the newest installment of episodic games released by Telltale Games. You play as the incompetent Detective Inspector Hector fighting crime and cleaning up the streets in the not-so-fair city of Clappers Wreake as a terrorist decides to take over. It is now up to Hector to save the city in this “point-and-click” game, solving various puzzles along the way. This may seem to sound like an innocent game but be warned: you must be 17 years or older to download this game and it is only fitting that the same disclaimer should apply for this review. So reader be warned it’s about to get… raunchy.

[Casual Friday] Tiny Wings

20110519-071451.jpg

This week’s Casual Friday features a game that epitomizes “casual.” There reason I say this is because the player only has one control; frankly it doesn’t get more casual than that. But does this extremely simple control scheme really offer enough depth to keep you coming back? Well let’s find out.
