Words on Tour icon

If you ever wondered how a word-forming game could be just as fun when you play it on your own, as it is when you’re playing against friends, then you should definitely take a look at Words on Tour.

Ups: Words on Tour is a level-based, word-forming game. And I find that to be really, really cool. Because, first of all, you have the incentive to try and earn as many points you need to clear each level. Then, you have all sorts of quests to keep you going. Like clearing a certain number of tiles, discovering the hidden phrase, trying to find the words you can form using all the tiles on a certain row, and so on.

There is always some new quest to complete, which makes the game extremely exciting, and also challenging. Especially since you have a limited number of moves you can use to clear each level. And, depending on the [...]

Who Misses Playing A Good Game Of Pinball

The App Store is home to all the games and apps you can imagine. For every problem you’ve got, there’s probably an app to help you find a solution. And a game to distract your attention from your daily routine. All the arcade, and board-games you used to love as a child have found their home in the App Store. And all the classics are being reinvented each day, becoming more fun, user-friendly, creative, and, basically, just really, really cool. Marvel Pinball is one of these games, and since it’s App of the Week in the App Store, you can now download it totally free of charge.

Marvel Pinball reinvents the classic pinball game, while keeping the basic rules, principles, and controls of the original game. The design is clearly better, and more complex than it was in the original, arcade game. It’s more interactive, so it doesn’t feel like you’re hitting [...]

Scrabble Pics icon

If you really like Scrabble, then you need to give Scrabble Pics a try. It’s new, fresh, challenging, and so engaging. I never thought Scrabble could get any more interesting, but this game is living proof that it could, and it did.

Ups: What I like most about Scrabble Pics is that it brings something new to the table. I rarely come across games that are totally fresh, and resemble nothing I’ve ever played before. And Scrabble Pics is one of them. The idea of the game is that it uses pics as crossword clues. But don’t think that a picture of a monkey necessarily means that the word you are looking for is monkey. It can be ape, or it can refer to the banana it’s holding, or the color of the banana, the tree behind it, and so on. So, you can really feel how your mind wheels are set in motion, trying to figure out the right [...]

Who’s Got Bingo?

By Maria Poeana   January - 7 - 2015    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Games & Entertainment   No Comments

When I hear Bingo, I think about grandmas and grandpas, all gathered together for a fun game night. It’s not something I would have imagined playing until I became a grandma myself. So, I was a bit skeptical, at first, about trying out a Bingo game. But you know what? I think they should also start showing other people playing Bingo in movies. Because Bingo by Appbite is anything but old. It’s fresh, fun, and can literally be played by any person, no matter the age.

The rules of Bingo are simple: get your Bingo card(s), each one with BINGO written on it, and a bunch of numbers under every letter of the word BINGO. Then, whenever you hear a number you have on your card, you cross it over, or tick it. Your goal is to form a Bingo line on a card faster than everyone else and before the available balls run out. When you’ve [...]

Looney Tunes Dash! icon

If you’re trying to find something to put a smile on your face at the beginning of this year, search no more: Looney Tunes Dash! is exactly what you’re looking for. Fun, creative, beautifully designed; it is definitely the best game i’ve played since the year started.

Ups: Looney Tunes Dash! is a level-based endless runner. Which I find to be absolutely great! After all, we’re talking about the hectic, constantly moving Looney Tunes characters, so what better way to put all this in a game, if not with an endless runner. And it’s level based, which is so cool, because it’s not about running as much as you can, faster and faster, until you can’t see straight anymore. It’s more about completing goals. And there’s always something new coming up.

Your main goal is to take Bugs Bunny Home safely, as he’s running [...]

Start The Year With A Challenging Game

By Maria Poeana   January - 5 - 2015    See more Apps inApp Reviews, Games & Entertainment   No Comments

If you’re looking to start the year with a challenge, then Icycle: On Thin Ice is the game for you. Mind-bending, with an extremely beautiful design and plot, Icycle surprises with every step you take forward throughout the game. It’s magical, creative, complex, complicated, and totally free of charge to download this week. Because Icycle: On Thin Ice is App of the Week in the App Store.

Icycle is a beautiful game. I say that, with no doubt in mind. Your job is to guide naked Dennis through frozen mountains, ice-cold waters, and all the way to the end of the world in his quest to find love. And yes, he is naked, but, surprisingly enough, there’s nothing weird about it. Quite the contrary. It makes Dennis look even more noble, and his quest even more challenging, in this situation. Plus, it gives you an extra incentive to try to do your best to collect items along the way, and equip [...]

Highrise Heroes - The Towering Game icon

Word games are catchy and smart. Scrabble and Words with Friends are just a couple of examples. But what if a word game had an actual story to it? And you wouldn’t just make up words to score points, but also to take the story further away. That’s the idea behind Highrise Heroes – The Towering Word Game. And I find it pretty cool.

Ups: Highrise Heroes brings up something new. It’s a mystery game, where you form words, instead of looking for hidden items, and solving puzzles. And it’s a word game, with a touch of mystery, and a complex story to it. The result? A fresh, new game, like no other I’ve played before. Your job is to connect letters, in a vertical, horizontal, and even a diagonal line, to form words. But here your aim is not necessarily to form long words to get more points. In Highrise Heroes, your main target is to bring all the characters safely to the bottom of [...]
