Well then, this should be a rather cute review of Piffle, shouldn’t it? Check!
Growing up as a kid in the 00’s, one of the most popular games was Runescape. It knew how to draw in a crowd, it was a relatively early example of a subscription model (which was cheap enough to make it worthwhile) and it was, all in all, a game which set standards for MMOs in the years to come. Whilst it’s a bit of a dated game, Old School Runescape exists – And it’s still hugely active. Recently however, Jagex dipped their toes into taking Old School Runescape to our smartphones. So join me for a look at what makes Runescape different on our phones, than it does on our browsers and PCs.
Ever wondered what a game of filling up a glass of water looks like? Yeah, well, neither did I… And yet, that’s what it’s come to ladies and gentlemen. However, don’t think that this is a bad title, indeed it’s a rather fun little game about filling up a glass of water. How can that be? Well, you turn it into a sweet little puzzler title and suddenly you’ve got water flowing everywhere, sometimes for good, sometimes for bad. If you’re a bit of a puzzle fan, then you should come check out Happy Glass with us.
Since the first smartphones came out, there has been a rising demand for more and more games. They’re an amazing distraction and when one of them takes off, they get massive – arguably more so than a PC or console title does. However, one thing I’d like to chat about is the recurring theme in smartphone games – About how all you need to do to play, is to wait, or to just tap the screen a million times. Whatever happened to innovation – Or are we about to see a new surge of innovative titles?
Tower Defense is a genre that blends strategy, fast-paced gameplay and general clicking around. I’ve always enjoyed a good tower defense title, which is actually pretty hard to come by. I mean, there are games like the Bloons series, but I’ve always wanted a good strategy on my phone. Lo and behold, I end up finding Infinitode, which I read a lot of good things about. It’s only fitting therefore that I got around to trying the Android based tower defense title. Would I be knocking out towers like nobodies business, or would I be falling to the hordes of enemies I was to encounter?
When towers reach dizzying heights, there is only one type of hero with the thrust to be able to reach the top. With the princesses of the land all captured and cooped up in one tower, separated by easily breakable wooden ceilings, one knight, equipped with sword, armour and a comically oversized cannon looks to save them all. Will our knight break through the ceiling in the Knightmare Tower?
Magikarp is a majestic creature; so full of love, hope and jumping ability. One day, you may evolve your Magikarp into a fearsome Gyarados, but some people just want to make a splash with their silly carp. But how well does Magikarp Jump capture the imagination of playing with a Magikarp? Can we soar to new gaming heights with this simple fish jumping game, or will this not reach the height of popularity that Pokemon Go received? Our full review is here!
Never did I think I would be reviewing a game brought out by the king of YouTube. Love him or hate him, PewDiePie is a polarising figure who brings a lot of attention to the YouTube platform. Without him, many popular YouTubers probably wouldn’t be around, so it’s nice to see he’s paying homage to who he is, as well as giving people a fun easy game to pass the time with. But is Tuber Simulator merely good, or is it truly great and a must have on your phone?
Do you wanna be the very best like no one ever was? Great, then you might as well go and get yourself a brand new pair of walking (or running) shoes and take to the streets, as Niantic Labs has finally released Pokémon Go here in the UK. After the slight delay of releasing it here in the UK, Brits have gone mad for Pokémon once again. However, is the game simply hype, or is it actually a great game with some ingenious marketing thrown in? Join Timlah as we take to the streets to play Pokémon Go.
