Steel Shot

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On June - 8 - 2010

Today we have another great game tip for you, that has fallen into my hands by accident (Please send a mail to us if you also find a diamond among the whole sand crumbs, I find it very sad that so many highlights are hidden, just because some devs upload every game no matter how boring it is), it’s called Steel Shot and is based on a game similar to a hit on another OS which will remain unnamed.

Do you know Angry Birds? Something like that has been missing for Android and until it arrives later this year, you can play this variation of the gameplay in slightly different, but similar form.

Johan from Fundamental Development contacted me and asked for a review for the game Hexalogic, so here it is.
Hexalogic is a simple logic game, where you take turns with the AI to place Hexagons on a grid. Every Hexagon has a random value between 1 and 20 and if the value is higher then the surrounding Hexagons, you take them over. If you place it besides your own field, you raise the value of it by 1. You play until the complete grid is filled and then the player with more points is the winner.

Sky Force Reloaded

Posted by Dan Mousavi On June - 5 - 2010

Shoot ‘em ups have a long history on handhelds and mobile devices, they have grown a lot since Solar Striker captured the hearts of millions of Game boy Players 20 years ago. Recently Cave, the No. 1 developer in the modern bullet hell segment of the genre, made a big splash on Iphone with Espgaluda II, which came to the platform 2 months after the console port for Xbox 360. The media uptake and gamers feedback on message boards showed that there are still thousands of gamers, that crave for a great shmup on mobile phones. But until they start to develop for Android (which they’ll maybe do, according to Yukihiro Masaki) we have another top notch game by the polish developer Infinite Dreams, that’ll keep us busy until the big guns arrive and there is one thing, that Sky Force Reloaded has, that even trumps Cave’s outing and makes it the best mobile shooter on all platforms. One word, Control.

The Several Journeys of Reemus

Posted by Dan Mousavi On May - 29 - 2010

We just got the first Froyo handset with full Flash 10.1 support and I know a lot of you are asking themselves if you really need Flash on a mobile Plattform for gaming.
That’s why I looked around for a halfway decent Flash game to show you in these early stages of the Flash open beta. What I have found was a total surprise to me and after playing the first of four available games, I claim The Several Journeys of Reemus is the best point and click adventure you can find on any Android device ( …that doesn’t run Android 1.6 or lower, of course nothing can touch the classic Lucasarts adventures, but they aren’t available until Scumm gets ported to 2.0 and I’m sure after playing them for decades you want something new, if it’s good).

Alchemy-Chemistry can be so simple

Posted by Dennis Zimpel On May - 27 - 2010

In the free game “Alchemy” you have to create new chemical elements!

You get the four basic elements set (fire, water, earth, air) with which one you can create new elements. With ever-increasing mixing up of them you can find 118 chemical elements. At first this looks very simple, but if you have explored the first easy elements it gets more difficult.

It’s a really simple game principle with tricky combinations but also a huge sense of achievement when you have discovered a new element.

You can get “Alchemy” for free in the Android Market!
