Kick it out! Football Manager

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On January - 20 - 2011

Kick it out! is already available for quite some time on the Android market, but I still can’t stop playing it, because I like this Football Manager, it is the only one out of the few available managers that delivers possibilities to upgrade your team, position it and do all that in a design that has a clear interface which looks good. It’s a game for short breaks and for longer ones, I can just start it, check my settings, look through transfers, play a tourney, a friendly game or a complete league.

Office Rush

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On January - 5 - 2011

With Office Rush the developer XIMAD delivered something special, this is not just a smart Jump and run, no, you will have to puzzle your way through, take a look at the screenshots to see what I mean. This is a genre mix from Jump and run and puzzle that will challenge your dexterity, which brings a lot of fun and makes this game worth every cent.

The menu is crafted nicely, you have direct access to the most important options like sound and highscores via Openfeint. You can also replay your favorite levels through the “Level Select” option.

Penguin X Run

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On December - 23 - 2010

Penguin X Run, brought to you from the developer that did YetiSports, is a accelerometer based game where the player needs to steer his character, one or more penguins, through sensitive and precise tilts of your Android handset until you reach the goal. So you can forget about playing it while lying in bed, because the controls are all about tilt mechanics.

There are obstacles on your way to the goal like bear traps, poisonous flowers or landmines to pull your leg and kill your penguin. Should one of your penguins run into such an obstacle, you need to restart the level, which can be frustrating, a checkpoint system to prevent anger would have been way better for the health of my Android device.

MX Moto

Posted by Dan Mousavi On December - 15 - 2010

The developer Camel Games already brought us a lot of great Android games and are mostly famous for their physics games. Their newest game is a motocross parcour game where you have to balance your rider through obstacles until you reach the goal. After successfully copying game mechanics from other developers for a while, it was just a matter of time, until one of Camel Games slightly altered clones fails to impress. Maybe it’s just me, but in MX Moto I strongly feel that nice physics alone don’t make a great game, because while the game is good enough that I want to recommend it here, it has some problems at the moment that keep it from being a satisfying gaming experience.

Pinball Ride

Posted by Dan Mousavi On December - 1 - 2010

Virtual Pinball is a difficult genre to get right. Since 1992, when the first Pinball Dreams was released, a lot of companies tried to get it right, even some big shots like Epic tried to create a pinball table, that is fun to play and Microsoft even bundled one with Windows, but since the glory days of tables like Stones ‘n Bones pretty much all sucked after a while. The only Pinball game that was fun in the last few years was the underrated Pinball FX on 360. Now here comes the first serious Pinball game on Android and I’m happy to report, that it is worth playing.
