An Old Tune Improved by a New Fiddle: Fortune Frenzy

Evolution doesn’t just happen to animals and plants, it also happens in the tech world. If you’re reading this on a tablet or an iPhone, then you’ll know precisely what I mean. And if you’re reading this on a great big dinosaur-sized desktop, you might also have an inkling, but not in quite the same way.

It’s taken a while but games producers have finally got around to the idea that smaller screens call for clearer, less cluttered visuals. Of course, there is small and there is small. Some screens are more compact than others. But these days there are very few indeed that offer the same great panoramic landscape that laptops used to provide.

And, in response to that shrinking screen size, the faster evolving games providers have started to tweak their games to fit into a smaller frame. The DNA of the gaming experience is being slightly readjusted as a single change in the environment – screen size – produces knock-on effects that spin-off in who knows which direction. That’s the fun of evolution, an old tune on a new fiddle can make for a radical transformation.

The latest spin of the evolutionary wheel has given us Fortune Frenzy, a compendium of casino and gaming fun that is unlike anything that has gone before. Bright, bold, uncluttered and adapted for the smaller screen in just about every respect, Fortune Frenzy has taken what was a fairly clunky, unwieldy beast, the online casino and gaming site, and transformed and adapted it into something that comes with the easy-on-the-eye intuitive user experience of something like Angry Birds.

Super smooth navigational pathways mean that the nuts and bolts of the experience that so often get in the way on gaming sites take a firm second place to the promotion of fun, fun and more fun. For anyone who has had to wade through pages of small print and seemingly well hidden games, Fortune Frenzy will come as a welcome relief.

And that ease of use is reflected all the way through your journey through Fortune Frenzy. No wonder it is proving to be such a hit. There are no overcomplicated, double up, twist down and spin round three-time bonuses or sign-up offers. Even the introductory offer is about as simple as it could be. Whatever your first deposit, they will double it. That is all there is to it.

It sounds so simple that you have to stop and wonder why no-one else has managed to manage the trick quite so well up to now. But that’s the thing about evolution, it’s always cropping up in quiet little backwaters. Only occasionally does one of its products turn into a world beater, like the story of how the holes in a violin came to be the way they are. Tech has always followed Nature in evolving in mysteriously unpredictable ways.

There seems little doubt that Fortune Frenzy’s ultra-streamlined take on the casino model will go on to conquer the world. Its bright, intelligent and nimble delivery is absolutely what iPhone and tablet users on the move have been crying out for. Fortune Frenzy has been intelligently adapted to suit the particular conditions that iPhone and iPad use involves. It is the perfect example of the powerful potential that tech evolution can deliver.

Clean Up Your Music Library Easily With Skiplayer

With great power comes responsibility, as the old comic book legend goes. You might not be a hidden superhero trying to fight crime and still maintain a sense of normalcy, but now you can clean up your music library on the go without missing out on the songs that you actually want to hear.

It’s a problem that music buffs have complained about for a while: just how do you clean out songs that you don’t want to hear anymore, without it taking hours and hours away from the things you want to do? Listening to music is supposed to be pleasurable, but when you can’t hear your jams on party shuffle, things get frustrating fast.

Enter Skiplayer, the iPhone app that lets you skip over those pesky songs forever — without taking away from your music experience.

music app

You can use this app in the car as well, and it’s far safer than trying to smash a bunch of tiny buttons. We’ve already dealt with that with the first generation of car audio systems, and it’s an era that just needs to go away already. The entire phone screen becomes a play button. If you want to skip a song, you just have to double press the FWD button in the car.

Tired of trying to make the perfect playlist? Skiplayer understands. Everything is just shuffled from the music library, and you can skip over the songs you don’t like. Swipe gestures make sifting through a big library a breeze, and it helps you get back to the music you really want to hear.

What we like about Skiplayer is that it’s an app that’s as pretty as it is functional. Careful planning has been taken to the app’s usability: you get a full screen’s worth of great looking artwork, along with cool blurred backgrounds. The music also keeps playing in the background as you flip through songs and otherwise navigate through the system. This feature makes it perfect for students trying to study. They can fill their headphones with the songs they want to hear, skip over the ones they don’t, and have time to focus a bit more on the actual study sesh.

You can always add songs to a favorite list, saving it from being skipped over forever. Of course, if you want to rescue a song from the forever alone bucket, you can do that too.

The app supports iPhone 5, 6, and 6+, as well as all iPods. The full-screen controls make this app a joy to use, and we highly recommend real music buffs to check it out from the iTunes store as soon as possible. You can also visit the info page here.

Numix – get crazy about adding numbers!

Numix is the newest game for iPhone that is an absolutely must-have app for anyone passionate about fun games to play on the iPhone – i.e. every iPhone users out there really!

So what is Numix?

numix-banner-blog-en

Numix is a very intuitive game where the player is given a timeframe of 2 minutes to add as many numbers as possible within a 4×4 matrix. You can add a sequence of numbers by drawing a line between all the numbers in the matrix that you want to add at the same time. Sounds easy? Not so fast! There are a few rules that you have to follow:

  • When making a sequence of numbers that you would like to add the last number in the sequence has to equal the sum of all the previous numbers of this sequence. For example, you can add make a sequence such as 5+6+11 and receive 22 points for your total score, because 5+6=11 and 5+6+11=22. However, you cannot add a sequence such as 5+6+12, as 12 ≠ 5+6.
  • Furthermore, a sequence can never contain the same number twice. For example, you cannot make a sequence 5+6+5+16, because it contains the number 5 twice.
  • However, you can add only the same numbers together, i.e. 4+4! In this case 8 is added to your matrix as a new number that you can use in following sequences. It does not get added to your total score.
  • The higher the sum of your sequence, the higher the bonus points at the end. Hence, players are encouraged to make extra long sequences, with more and higher numbers, to receive more bonus points, as well as to add more point to the final score!

Basileo – an original storybook, a game, a drawing book, a fun way to learn… all in just one app!

Do you know who beat the Minotaur in Ancient Greece? Theseus I hear you say? – Well, I would like to introduce you to someone who will tell you a slightly different story: Basileo.

Basileo is a Centaur and a very special one of that: differently to all other Centaurs of his time, Basileo has the head of a horse and the lower body a man. And in addition to that he has a dream: he wants to become the greatest hero of Ancient Greece and his first project is to defeat the Minotaur, a deafly creature with the body of a human and the head of a bull.

The App “Basileo and the Labyrinth” tells the story of Basileo and his quest to defeat the Minotaur. It starts with the small Basileo telling his mum that he will go to seek the feared Minotaur and the mom, as parents can do sometimes, dismissed his exclamation as a childish dream and asks him to pick up some milk and the end of his play date. Little does she know…

Her son is about to go on a great adventure, which includes being thrown off a ship and being helped by Poseidon, the God of the Sea, on his journey to Crete.

Basileo also meets Theseus, who wants to defeat the Minotaur as well. And clearly the story of what happened in the Labyrinth has been told wrong all those years, because when Theseus leaves the Labyrinth saying that he defeated the Minotaur he has left out a few details about Basileo’s involvement in his success. You want to know what exactly happened? Get your Basileo App today and find out!

The App “Basileo” is an interactive storybook, which includes many fun games for children and beautifully hand-drawn illustrations on each page. Furthermore, the app includes an original soundtrack and a narrator in three languages. The story is told in a fun and humorous way, which makes reading it as enjoyable for adults, as it is for kids.

Delight your cone cells and your grey cells! With Dwelp, you can do both at the same time!

Released a few months ago for iOS by solo developer Alex Blaj, Dwelp is an elegant little puzzler which wraps a unique game mechanic in a delightfully minimalistic presentation. The attention to details is top-notch, making for a great experience.

To solve each of the 120+ puzzles, all you have to do is connect the same-colored dots on a grid by placing them one near another. That wouldn’t be too difficult if it weren’t for a simple rule that spices up the gameplay: As soon as you connect two dots, the other dots of that color can’t be moved anymore and can only be picked up by linking them to the larger shape you have just created. As it often happens, this sounds more complicated than it actually is, so the trailer below should explain it better.

Most of the puzzles have more than one solution. In fact, many of them have hundreds of possible solutions, so the game challenges you to find the one that requires the lowest number of moves. Do this for 80 puzzles and you will be treated to a special pack of ultra-hard puzzles that will have you scratching your head for hours! The game also contains a bonus puzzle pack which introduces an entirely new mechanic and creates a nice diversion.

One noteworthy feature is the powerful undoing mechanism. At any time, you can tap the undo button and the game allows you to swipe back and forth to retrace all your steps. This will become very handy later on in the game, when you might get to a dead end and want to review all the moves and try to find out which was the wrong step.

Featuring Game Center integration with a main leaderboard and 16 achievements, a color blind mode for the visually impaired and a handy puzzle previewer which allows you to see the puzzles at a glance before opening them, this is puzzle solving at its finest.

With no ads or in-app purchases whatsoever, Dwelp is a true gem that will provide puzzle aficionados with countless hours of fun! Get it here!

Want to play old good MechWarrior on your iPhone? We have an idea!

The secret is simple – try mobile game Walking War Robots! It’s promised, your heart will beat faster once you operate this huge walking mech machine. Its detailed graphics and perfect sound system will leave no room for nostalgia and you’ll feel like in old good times. Have I mentioned it’s free?

3D battlefield

Walking War Robots is a universal game for iPhone, iPad and iPod devices and is currently translated into six languages. The game requires a strong internet connection and doesn’t have a stand-alone mode. Which is however not its downside. On the contrary playing with real people is a much more fun!. The game is available all over the world and it currently has strong clans of players in Russia, Germany, Japan, the USA, and the UK. There is sadly no in-game communication chat for now, so you’ll have to talk to the others in forum or via Facebook.

The aim of the game is pretty simple. You and your team need to capture all enemy beacons and protect all yours. The first team who does it is a winner. Simple, huh? The game gives you whole freedom to apply different tactics and strategies of your choice, you can even push other robots on the battlefield! Isn’t it fun?

MMO 6vs6

To start the game you need to equip your robot by choosing a weapon for it. You can possess several robots, however you can play only one at a time. As you get more experience in the game, you can upgrade your robots and weapons and try the game at its all power. You can buy new weapons and robots for Gold or Silver, both are the currencies you can earn in the game if you don’t want to invest your real money. The game offers a good variety of weapons and robots. Currently there are 3 maps to play on, but developers tell there are more to come.

The interface to the game is intentionally simple – most of the screen is occupied by battlefield and in the very bottom there are two management buttons basically to operate the robot with just two thumbs. In the upper part of the screen you can see the actual state of the battle as well as your robot. In case your robot is hit by a rocket and its ability to jump or shoot is broken, the corresponding button will be broke too, so pay attention to it!

Drawing a conclusion, Walking War Robot is a mobile game that can keep you busy for hours and days. It is a good mix of old good MechWarrior with new modern mobile games. Try it out!
