It’s been quite a while since my last post and i apologize for that. The main reason is that I started a new job and it’s pretty stressfull and i do long hours so it’s taking a bit of my free time away and i’m also really tired when i get home.
I hope it gets easier with time leaving enough space for me to write on the blog too.
So you want to know what i’ve been playing during these few months on my iOS devices? Here we go. And remember to add me on your gamecenter if you want to play something.
Fruit Ninja €0.79 (iPhone and iPad)
I know i’ve already spoken about this game but thanks to Gloria i found out an amazing part of the game that’s pretty much unknown to everyone… or maybe just me. For me multiplayer on iOS never really took off…but now… oh wow… Me and Gloria are in the top 15% tier in the online versus multiplayer on Fruit Ninja… and oh my god is it fun. You practically go up against another human being and what you have to do is cut your fruit (blue colored) and not hit your opponent’s fruit (red). White fruit is free for all and gives you +3 points (+1 for each fruit you cut). Combos of course count more points and if you cut your opponents’ fruit you get -3 points. Most points at the end of the round wins.
You are put into the world ladder and they tell you into what % you fit into with your rating (e.g. top 15%).
If you haven’t bought this yet you’re missing out. If you have, I CHALLENGE YOU!
A mention also goes to offline multiplayer where the ipad divides into 2 screens and you fight against someone next to you. It’s actually really exciting and is good for a few laughs. I don’t think this is available for the iphone as i think the screen real estate is way too small. Please confirm me if any of this isn’t available on the iphone as i played it on my iPad
Death Rally €Free at the moment (iPhone and iPad)
Death Rally reminds me of a game on the PS1 called Circuit Breakers and that in turn reminded me of earlier games called Micro Machines on various consoles. It’s the modern incarnation of all those games. Aside from making your thumb so sore it bleeds, this game has no negative sides. It’s a real load of fun and will surely make your legs numb on the toilet.
You have different cars, different weapons, different circuits, beautiful graphics, everything is upgradable and is great for small bursts of gameplay.
A must download!
Tiny Tower €Free at the moment (iPhone and iPad)
Matthew probably remembers Sim Towers and so does Diego. Well this is a minimized version of Sim Towers. If you liked Game Dev Story you’ll love Tiny Tower and Matthew knows all about loving Game Dev Story. You start off with a 1 storey building and you grow from there dividing your different levels with residential areas, services, food areas, offices etc creating the biggest tower you can and earn as much money as you are willing to invest. It’s a fun little game and is GREAT in small doses but definetly a long title that will drain your iPhone battery like mad.
Monkey Island Episode 1 and Back to the Future Episode 1 €Free at the moment (iPhone and iPad)
Everyone knows about these 2 point and click adventures. I personally like them and they’re a fun distraction while on the crapper. They’re free and pretty awesome games so it’s a win win situation. Download them!
I think that’s about it for today and let me know if you want to try and beat me at fruit ninja! I’d be glad to get Gloria to win in my place eheh.
