Toyville Heroes

Toyville Heroes: Overleap is a quite interesting game from the game development beginners Some Game Studio, in which you need to play for the toy characters and jump from one column to another. According to developers, it’s the first game from a series of games about this universe of toys. They call it Toyville Heroes.

toyville-heroes-overleap

Despite the fact that the game looks fairly childish, it’s hard to classify it as “game for kids”. At first play you will understand that scoring at least 5 points is not as easy as it seems as this game use a pretty difficult and annoying game mechanics.

Here’s how it works

At the beginning of the game your character stands on the column (which is actually abc-blocks) and has the target that spins around him all the time. Your goal is to jump to another column before the one on which you stand don´t crash (a timer at the bottom of the screen will always jog your memory). To perform it (by considering the rotation of the target) you need to accurately calculate the jump. You tap on the screen at that moment, when your character has to jump, and hold it until target reaches the next column, then you should release. After that your character will jump, and if you release at the right time, he will land on the next column. Otherwise, you will fall down. You will have to start the game again. In other words, you need to jump from one column to another, until you don’t fall (and there’s no doubt that you will fall. It’s the only matter of time). That’s it.

There are also a lot of characters, which open through the system, borrowed obviously from the popular game “Crossy Road”. It means, either you buy characters for real currency or take periodic gifts in the form of virtual currency, then put them in a “special” slot machine, which will open you a random character. And later you will be able to select them in the characters selection menu.

Another thing that matters is the fact that the game has already been translated into 4 languages: English, French, Russian and Kazakh.

Finally, it’s worth to say that we’ve met pretty interesting and exciting mobile game which has its own childish atmosphere.

Cool guitar solos and hot platforming gameplay at your fingertips

Run and Rock-it Kristie is a colorful auto-running platformer with a couple of original ideas and design choices. The premise is simple: Kristie is late to the show and needs your help on her breakneck run to reach the stage to give a spectacular guitar performance for her fans.

The game starts as a classic platformer, teaching new players the basics, but gradually increases difficulty by introducing new gameplay elements like air-vent bumpers, springy balloons, hazardous spikes and enemies as well as new mechanics like wall-sprinting, rope-sliding and attacking.

Controls are single-touch in the first tour and two-touch for the rest of the game – one for jumping and one for attacking. Mastering the controls is essential and here is why. The game comes with 30 bite-sized levels. Those who are simply looking to fly through all levels will be able to do it in a couple hours. But if you’re looking to perfect each one, you definitely won’t do it in one sitting.

Each stage has collectibles in the form of musical notes and golden stars which when collected together add up to a hundred points. Finish with all collectibles and you’ll be rewarded with a unique guitar solo performed by Kristie. The collectibles are placed all over the stage and is takes a bit of exploration to find all of them.

What it means is you’ll need to dash through each stage several times before finding out the route to pull off the perfect run which might sound tedious but comes with a definite feeling of satisfaction once you manage to successfully do it.

The game looks very good, features a variety of time of year, weather and time of day setups and has an original up-beat soundtrack.

winter-004-ui

While unlocking guitar solos is cool, sometimes it’s not enough to make you genuinely want to beat each stage perfectly. The developer is planning to add different character outfits to the game as a sort of a more “visual” reward for players. That’s actually a good idea, since it’ll create an additional incentive to beat stages perfectly for those who are more interested in looks, rather than audio goodness.

The verdict

Run and Rock-it Kristie has very easy controls, but can be challenging if you’re really willing to put your skills to the test. The game rewards skillful players with original guitar solos and lets you get access to all features and future updates with just a single in-app purchase. Try it; it’s a free download after all.

Ready for a Feast of Dazzling Puzzles? Black Island Delivers In Spades

Let a gamer chill with you for a few hours, and eventually you’ll get to a topic that’s near and dear to every gamer’s heart: retro games. Specifically, adventure games. Who hasn’t grown up hacking and slashing their way across a world map? But today’s adventure games have gotten a big boost thanks to the iOS platform. Hey, we have no problem with Android phones around here, but it’s all about the iPhone and iPad as far as we’re concerned.

Let’s give you a new adventure game to sink your teeth into. This one is designed for the iOS platform, although there are alternate versions for the other systems. The game featured today is Black Island. We know: mild name, nothing really to see here…until you sit down and play.

black island iphone

Here’s the basics: it’s all about the point and tap, with heavy coats of storytelling. You get to look around for specific items and solve creative puzzles within the game. Don’t fail your quest, or you’ll never move forward in the game!

What’s really intriguing about Black Island is that there are short little video clips that extend the story beyond just the words, something that we thought was very clever. If you’ve played something like Skyrim, then you understand the importance of mini-movies within a game. It can bring an otherwise flat game to life in a matter of seconds. For well-crafted games like Black Island, it’s really just a buildup of interesting flavors that lead to something even more intriguing than before.

Black Island isn’t just for the Indiana Jones types in the audience; if you love to solve mysteries and always seem to know who the masked villain is before the big reveal, you’ll enjoy the challenge of this game just fine.

What we found most interesting is how the old and new were respected as the story unfolds. You have some strong elements of retro gaming, but not so much so that you can’t feel the modern overtones as well. This isn’t just for people wanting to relive the golden era of gaming; it’s for teens that need to have something interesting to play while they’re waiting on their parents. OK, the rest of us can play too, but if you have young gamers in the house you might have to wrestle your iPhone away…

This game is currently free until October 15th, giving you time to check out the game without having to remember a promo code.

The game is divided into three chapters. The first chapter starts out with a mysterious beginning: a lonely watchtower that shows the island perfectly, but you still can’t just climb it. How do you get up there without a ladder? You’ll just have to play and find out!

Matching butterflies earns you time as well as points and when the matched butterflies fly away, the grid is filled up again. Your time remaining is represented by the seeds on a dandelion; when all the seeds have blown away: it’s game over! If you match enough of a certain colour then you can earn a bonus Ladybird and if you match the maximum possible number of butterflies, you earn a Rainbow Butterfly.

Endless

This could also be called “Survival Practice” because it’s the same as Survival but without the time limit. This is a great place to learn how to earn the Ladybird and Rainbow Butterfly and then see what effect they have on the game grid.

Solitaire

In this mode, when you successfully make a match and the butterflies fly away, they are not replaced. Your goal is to clear the grid of all butterflies as quickly as possible.

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?

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!

Can you help the world’s fattest ninja scale the Tower of Torment?

Do you like ninjas? You do? Well did you know that ninjas like cake? More than like – they love it. They want its little cakey babies. Ever wondered what happens when a ninja loves cake just a little bit too much? Well, you’re not alone. One-man game studio, Fingerland, had the exact same thought and so created Fat Ninja, a highly addictive hand-drawn arcade game for iOS.

The hapless hero has gorged himself on too many battenbergs and now must embark upon the harshest training regime in ninja lore – the Tower of Torment(TM).

Fat Ninja for iOS_flatulent foot up

The aim of the game is to help Fat Ninja scale the Tower of Torment without breaking any of the platforms. Simply tap and drag anywhere on the screen to build up power and then release to watch Fat Ninja leap to the next platform. But, be careful – land softly or the platform will break!

With five different types of platform – steel, concrete, wood, bamboo and glass – you’ll need to keep your wits about you to ensure you don’t land too heavily and smash through to a long fall and a facefull of paving slab. Control and precision is central to the game, but speed is also important: hesitate for a second too long and the platform will start to crack.

Fat Ninja for iOS_fall

Watch out for three special power-ups that help Fat Ninja scale the tower: a diet pill to lighten his load, an air brake to instantly stop his fall with a tap of the screen, and a can of beans for a flatulent foot up. You can only use one power-up at a time though, so make good use of each one to gain the highest score.

With hand-drawn graphics and original gameplay, Fat Ninja is one of a kind in the appstore. Based on the simple premise of jumping from platform to platform without falling, it is easy to learn but hard to master.

It is available to download free for iOS in the appstore: https://appsto.re/gb/1YTJ5.i

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_iphone_app

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.
