Welcome to December, everyone!
I spent way too much time gaming this week, and I’m about to share with you some of the culprits responsible for that. This week’s top picks include some extremely addictive titles that cover a wide range of gameplay styles — there’s something for everyone, so come on in and get playing! (more…)
The Epic Knight from the well-known dungeon defense game, Tiny Heroes, is back in the new running game, One Epic Knight. The tables have turned and now the Epic Knight is the one conquering the dungeon. Whether you’ve played the first game or not, what could be more exciting than a dungeon filled with loot, potions, trinkets and green jello cube monsters? Other than real treasure chests filled with loot, I can’t think of too much.
As a fan of the popular Temple Run, when I found out One Epic Knight was free I had to take it for a spin. So, how does it compare to other games in the running genre? Read on to find out! (more…)
With the advent of smartphones, and largely driven by the market-defining success of the iPhone, the way in which we employ these devices has changed. The telephone and the mobile phone were designed so that we could speak to each other with distance being no object. Nowadays, we increasingly email, text, iMessage, twitter, facebook or google. We are using mobile phones to talk increasingly less. Despite this, an app called Wavedeck Voice Messenger PTT makes it easier to communicate than, say, texting. (more…)
Do you like to browse retailers’ websites on your phone whenever you have a couple minutes to kill? Or are you an always-on-the-go shopper who can’t remember the last time you didn’t use your iPhone to make a purchase? Either way, CoffeeTable can make your mobile shopping experience better.
A little like having a personal shopper, CoffeeTable features more than 150 digital catalogs from well-known and well-loved brands, including Athleta, Eddie Bauer, Crate and Barrel, Macy’s, Neiman Marcus, Heifer and many others — all categorized and ready for you to easily save, share or purchase products from. Click “more” to see how it works. (more…)
There’s an app that let’s you create poems and have them read by William Shatner. I’m going to let that sink in, because yes, it is just that good. While it’s hard to see where the Shat doing what the Shat does could go wrong, I felt some trepidation launching Shatoetry for the first time.
Is there more to William Shatner’s new app than just hearing William Shatner say really funny things? To be honest, not really, but if a Shatner poetry slam is wrong, I know I don’t want to be right. (more…)
I think we all can agree that iTunes isn’t exactly the easiest thing to use, particularly if you have a mammoth library. There are lots of different components to the system, and it can be a bit unwieldy.
But now we have iTunes 11, a new version of the software that claims to be the best ever. Is it? Or does iTunes still need a little bit of work? Let us know in the poll to the right!
Some of the first video games have been deemed the greatest of all time, while others were simply given the title “Greatest of their time.” Not everyone will agree that Super Mario was the most revolutionary side-scrolling platform game that they played when they were little. That’s okay, because there are many other classics out there, like Pac-Man. It is still one of the undisputed champions of arcade gaming, whether you play it or not. The same goes for Tetris.
When it came to the iPhone back in 2009, there was nary a question that it would continue the heritage and bring it to its true mobile greatness. One could not argue that the Java version of this game, offered only on the primitive mobile phones of the early 2000s, was one of the best things that happened to it. With another step into the ever-growing market of technology and gaming alike, things can only get better for Alexey Pajitnov’s fine feather in his ushanka. Or can they? (more…)

First the original, then Seasons, then Rio, then Space, then Piggies and now Star Wars? At first I thought Rovio were running out of ideas; a collaboration between the somewhat serious Star Wars venture and a bunch of oversized quick-tempered birds seemed off the table. Despite my initial doubts, however, Rovio’s newest release is as addictive as ever.
Angry Birds Star Wars is that classic gameplay we all know and love put into a context that we are equally affectionate towards — that of the Star Wars franchise. This unlikely combination actually suprised me with its comical charm, something i wasn’t sure that would be retained. Will the birds still stay strong in this sequel? Let’s find out. (more…)
