Star Wars: Card Trader Brings Back Childhood Memories

By Maria Poeana   March - 19 - 2015    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Games & Entertainment   No Comments

When we were kids, long before touch-screen devices were one of our main sources of entertainment, all we needed to have fun was a piece of chalk, and a sidewalk to draw on. A simple board game, and a dice. An elastic string to jump up and down. Cards, stickers, and stamps to collect and trade. So, if I were to describe Star Wars: Card Trader using just one word, this would be childhood. Because that’s exactly what this app reminded me of: childhood. And I totally loved it!

Star Wars: Card Trader is exactly what you’d expect it to be, judging by its name: an app that brings card collecting and trading to your touch-screen device. And not just any cards. But Star War Cards. Weather you choose to join the Jedi Force, or go to the Dark Side, Star Wars: Card Trader has over 1,000 officially-licensed Star Wars digital cards for you to collect, and trade.

8bit Doves: Amazingly Awful or Awfully Amazing?

By Maria Poeana   March - 17 - 2015    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Games & Entertainment   No Comments

The App Store is home to all types of games you can imagine. Battle-based, shooters, mix and match, build and collect, puzzle, mystery…and 8bit Doves. 8bit Doves is something else. Something that I can’t yet categorize. It’s amazing, fun, challenging, and absolutely a must-have game. That is if you enjoyed playing Flappy Bird, and other similar game. But the most horrible user experience ever, if you don’t enjoy this sort of games. And it’s App of the Week in the App Store.

I don’t enjoy Flappy Bird sort of games. I don’t enjoy building, and collecting games either. But I can appreciate a game’s assets when I see them. Building, and collecting games are awful time wasters, and that’s the main reason why I don’t like them. But what makes them time wasters is that they are so catchy, you just can’t stop clearing one quest after another. And doing [...]

Blood & Glory: Immortals icon

Thirsty for an engaging battle-based challenge this week? Then, search no more, because Blood & Glory: Immortals is exactly what you’re looking for.

Ups: Blood & Glory: Immortals is an extremely catchy battle-based game. Your job is to control your hero in his battle to save the world from vengeful Gods. So, you’ll have some pretty nasty creatures to face, and destroy. But, you also have all sorts of special attacks you can use, depending on the hero you choose to master: warlock, gladiator, or barbarian. Plus, as you win battles, you collect all sorts of cool stuff you can trade, or combine to get more powerful items to equip your character. Also, you can unlock new skills, as you go along the game. Or, you can learn them, by paying in gems. The graphics are very cool, and the gameplay, quite intuitive. I really liked the GO button that keeps popping on the screen [...]

YouTube Kids Knows What Your Kid Should Be Watching

I always say that when I’ll have a kid, TV will be more of a one-hour, recreational thing, than a full-time occupation. And watching my sister grow-up with all sorts of shows that I never really though were quite age-appropriate has only made my decision stronger. So, it’s really nice when you come across an app that instantly solves the inappropriate content problem that you, as a parent, probably worry about all day. This is YouTube Kids. And I must admit that, even I, as a grown-up, had quite a lot of fun exploring it.

The creators of YouTube Kids have searched, and prepared a large collection of age-appropriate videos for your child to enjoy, while you can take comfort in knowing exactly what your child is watching. Shows, Music, Learning, and an Explore Menu. That’s what YouTube Kids has to offer. Each Menu, with dozens of [...]

Agent Alice icon

Looking to solve some mysteries this week? Then Agent Alice has got a case for you!

Ups: Agent Alice is one of those games you will just not be able to stop playing until it’s done. Especially if you’re the type who just can’t leave a mystery unsolved. It’s really engaging. And with every new clue you discover, you witness how the entire story unravels before you. The tasks are really quick, and quite easy to complete. So the pace of the game is really fast, and that only makes it more engaging, and fun. It’s like a boost of energy that just keeps you going, and going.

And I really liked that you can earn the things you need to go on playing. You need energy to look for clues, but even when you run out of all the energy packs you win along the way, in time, your energy bar fills up again. And you need stars to examine [...]

You listen all night long to the jokes your special someone makes, because they are so funny, you just can’t resist laughing.

You need to spend money to make money. That is the basic principle behind AdVenture capitalist! And if it sounds like something you might agree with, then this is a must-have game for you this week.

Ups: AdVenture capitalist! is something else than what you regularly find each week scrolling through the list of new games in the App Store.
