Turn Your Arcade Mode On With Space Qube

If you grew up with arcade games, then you have to remember Space Invaders. I think it’s one of the most iconic arcade games of my childhood. And, although, it now looks like you were shooting pixels at pixel-groups, with your pixel-made ship, you probably spent days, months, and years playing Space Invaders. And now, you can play it on your modern Apple device. Totally free of charge this week, since Space Qube is App of The Week in the App Store.

Space Qube is Space Invaders with a bit more color, and clarity. The Retro design was kept, so you’re still shooting, more or less, pixels, at pixels, using pixels. But now, since there is a larger color variety, and a more complex background, it feels a bit more like you’re commanding a ship, shooting at all sorts of aliens. Plus, now, you also have all sorts of bosses to destroy, a special control [...]

Night at the Museum: Hidden Treasures icon

There are just a couple of days left until the release of the newest Night at the Museum sequel. I just watched the trailer, and it looks like it’s got a good chance to be just as hilarious as the first two. If not better. And the game is a lot of fun, too.

Ups: Night at the Museum: Hidden Treasures is a really captivating, beautifully designed and creative mystery game. So, it’s not an endless runner. Thank God for that! Not that I have anything against endless runners, but promoting a movie with an endless running game has become kind of a cliche. Getting back to our game, I totally love it! You are the new guard at the museum, and just like Larry in the first movie, you’re about to find out your job is to keep a lot more things under control than you’d expect. Unlock exhibitions, find hidden items, complete quests, and keep everyone [...]

Light Up The Universe

When I came across God of Light, I honestly thought it had something to do with Game of Thrones. And it does. Not graphic or story-wise. But, just like Game of Thrones is a one of a kind, thrilling, amazing, and probably one of the most addictive TV shows ever made, God of Light is one of the most interesting games I’ve played. This year for sure, if not ever.

Puzzle games are, usually, extremely interesting, and you can really feel they put your mind to the test. But there’s something more to God of Light than just its quality of being a great puzzle games. I can’t say whether it’s the beautiful graphics, the out of the ordinary gameplay, the soothing background music, or a combination between all of these features. But one thing’s for sure: once you’re hooked, God of Life takes you to a whole new world.

Guide Your Guardians Through The Galaxy

When Guardians of the Galaxy, the movie, was released this year, it was quite a hit. I don’t know what you expected of it, but after all the already legendary Marvel movie hits, I didn’t expect this one to be so remarkable. So, it was quite a surprise to see just how fast it got so popular. And an even bigger surprise that Guardians of the Galaxy wasn’t just buzz worthy, but also one of the best Marvel movies so far. And Guardians of the Galaxy, the game, is not too shabby, either.

Guardians of the Galaxy: The Universal Weapon follows the story of the comic (and, of course, the movie) from the Guardians’ escape out of Prison 42, and all the way up to Xandar. Your job? Move from one place to another, following the storyline. To do so, you must clear all the levels along the way. At first, you only have Star-Lord to do the [...]

Dumb Ways to Die 2 icon

It was my 14 year old sister who convinced me to download the first Dumb Ways to Die game. I had a feeling it was going to be really, really dumb, but I wanted to make her happy. And, surprisingly, playing the game made me happy. And Dumb Ways to Die 2: The Games was an even bigger, better surprise.

Ups: Dumb Ways to Die 2 is pure fun. You probably won’t last longer than a couple of minutes per game, so it’s not time consuming. The challenges get harder, because the pace of the game gets faster as you keep on playing, but that doesn’t make it annoying. The graphics are funny. The challenges are even funnier, if you like a bit of dark humor once in a while. And with this sequel, the first game only got better. It’s still arcade, but now you have all sorts of stages you can try, each one with its original challenges. Go to Freezerville for ice cold [...]

Vainglory icon

Instead of playing King’s newest Candy Crush duplicate this week, Vainglory is a way better choice. It’s also a strategical, and intense time waster. But it’s a bit more complex than matching same colored items.

Ups: Vainglory is impressive right from the start, because of its graphics. They are complex, beautifully executed, and guaranteed to make you feel like you’ve actually stepped in a fantasy battle field. Vainglory is a typical strategy game, where your main task is to defeat the opposite army, while clearing quests, and constantly upgrading your hero. It’s a battle-based game, where the team that defeats the opposition’s base first, wins.

First, you need to pass a basic training, where you will learn all about the controls, and get a bit of battle exercise. Then, you can continue practising in Solo Mode, with whatever hero you [...]
