Number Chef: A Tasty Old School Puzzler

Number Chef: A Tasty Old School Puzzler

Cooking goes well with a lot of things. It can go well with a burgeoning relationship, for instance. It can also work effectively with the radio, when it’s on in the background. Similarly, maths can also go well with a lot of things. Protractors, rulers, textboooks, etc. The list is comprehensive. However, I’ve never thought of combining the two, as they seem at cross-purposes. But taking a closer look reveals that they aren’t all that…

California BUCKiTDREAM-in’

California BUCKiTDREAM-in’

Dreams are an interesting phenomenon. Whichever way you slice it, there’s a huge amount to be read into them. A succession of images, ideas, or emotions that come upon us when we sleep. And they seem to be communal, too. We’ve all been sat in a school assembly or work meeting, and looked down in horror to discover we’re not wearing any clothes. Or fallen off a tall building. Or watched our teeth fall out….

Facility 47: The Rare Beast Of A Mystery Game Done Well

Facility 47: The Rare Beast Of A Mystery Game Done Well

Any storyteller knows that mystery is a hard thing to do well. You can only keep someone continuously entertained by safe-vouching just the right amount of information. And, as the old adage has it, ‘you can’t bluff someone who’s not paying attention’. As hard as mystery is to do on the small and big screens, it’s nigh on impossible to do correctly as an app game. Or at least, that’s what one would think. However,…

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh: A Home Away From Home

Rivers Casino Pittsburgh: A Home Away From Home

Martin Scorsese made a film called ‘Casino’ in 1995, starring Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci. I don’t recall a lot from the film (I’d bet Sharon Stone was in it), but what I do remember vividly is a scene where Joe Pesci and his friend get driven out to a cornfield and beaten savagely with a baseball bat until death. Now, of course, this isn’t indicative of all casinos by any means, but it certainly…

Three Industry Leading Apps By Australian Developers

Three Industry Leading Apps By Australian Developers

Australia isn’t a place you’d immediately associate with app innovation, but the lads down under have a firm grasp of what works and what doesn’t when it comes to smartphones. It has a population of just under 24 million, which is a big big market to play with. Even if they call slot machines ‘pokies’ (they really do; online pokies Australia is also a big money spinner for them) and drink tiny bottles of beer,…

Gambling is one of the world’s oldest pursuits. These days, it’s a certified billion dollar industry. People all over the world gamble every day, in different shapes and forms. Traditionally it was card tables and slot machines that took precedence, but since the new millennium, there’s been a shift in the landscape. Now, smartphones rule the realm.

JimmyCASE: Making A Case For Style And Practicality

Today’s contemporary world is a bit of a conundrum; a lot of things are meant to simply your life, when in fact, they complicate it. Online banking for instance. I can’t help but think it was just easier when you went through a normal person to do that kind of stuff. In fact, a lot of things which have been supposedly simplified online simply end up being a whole pile of new annoyances. How refreshing…

Bloons TD 5: A Towering Triumph Of Strategy

For those not in the know, a sub-genre currently dominating the mobile gaming market at the moment is Tower Defense. The gameplay consists of real time strategy, where the goal is to stop enemies reaching a certain point on the map. The essential mechanics of the game are found in the placement and positioning of the player’s personal towers. As a genre, Tower Defense goes way back to 1990 with Atari’s prototypical Rampart, while fans…

Aquapolis: That’s Greek For Water City And It’s Pretty Damn Apt

Aquapolis: That’s Greek For Water City And It’s Pretty Damn Apt

My first introduction to the city building/farming genre, which at that point couldn’t even be called a genre, was the enchanting ‘Harvest Moon’ title for N64. I’d spend hours building up my farm, tending to the animals and growing crops. Life was peaceful on my farm. Perhaps a little too peaceful. And therein lies the problem with the farming genre. Nothing much happens. Sure, if you like to take it easy and use the games…

Fight Or Half-Fight The Hordes With Clicker Heroes

Fight Or Half-Fight The Hordes With Clicker Heroes

There’s been a certain trend in app games lately, and that is the trend of idle RPGs. The idea behind idle RPGs is quite simple; it’s a gameplay system that removes the dreading ‘grinding’ aspect and replaces it with automatic leveling up. In other words, it’s RPG-ing with the dull parts removed. Because who likes leveling up characters for hours on end? Not today’s smartphone community, that’s for sure. However, while the idle RPG is…

Heed The Call To Adventure With New 7 Wonders Of The World

Apparently, the Seven Wonders of the World have not always remained consistent. There’s the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, which typically include Stonehenge, the Colosseum, the catacombs of Kom el Shoqafa, the Great Wall of China, the Porcelain Tower of Nanjing, Hagia Sofia (points if you know what the hell that even is) and the Leaning Tower of Pisa. They’re the originals, the classics, if you will. But in 2000, a new initiative was…

The Rise And Rise Of The Mobile Bingo App

Bingo has always been big business. Though the younger generation might associate the concept with a game played at a glacial pace in a funereal retirement home lounge, the truth is it’s bigger than all that. It’s been a popular mobile game for a long time now, and it doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.With the general rise of mobile gambling  over the last couple of years, mobile bingo accounts for up to…

Bitcoin: Creating a Safer Online Bet

Bitcoin: Creating a Safer Online Bet

Bitcoin is a digital cryptocurrency that can be transferred to anyone in the world, from anywhere in the world. It was created for the burgeoning world of internet commerce, to avoid relying on a shady and inevitable corrupt central regulating authority to handle transfers and creation. Ironically, that very maneuver has furnished Bitcoin as a somewhat shady operation in and of itself, especially when it’s described as ‘cryptocurrency’; though sinister undertones abound, all that phrase…

Maadly: It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Maad Online World

Everything in the online world is instantaneous and sadly, predictable. There’s no real surprise factor anymore, because you can pretty much anticipate what you’re going to discover in your daily timelines and newsfeeds. Not to say that everything is boring, but it sure is repetitive. You know these people and you know their likes, dislikes and priorities. In our modern world, we’re able to transmit that information in mere seconds. As the late B.B. King…

AireLive: Making A Bid For Digital Domination

Ever find your smartphone to be a little overcrowded? You’ve got that perfectly rendered selfie ready to fly up on Instagram, you’ve got that event page in full flow on Facebook, Skype is open and ready to take that call from your cousin in Taiwan, while you’re engaged in meaningless, drawn-out conversation with your mother on WhatsApp. It’s a juggling game, constantly flying back to the menu page, accidentally quitting some apps, typing the wrong…

Live And In The Stre.am

There used to be a time when making a video required large amounts of money and large amounts of experience. Filmmaking, once the sacred realm of alchemists and dramatists, has been reduced to its lowest common denominator. That’s by no means a bad thing. But it is a fact. And in fact, it’s a great thing. The pocket smartphone can now be a portal to countless worlds, watched by thousands, in real time. Developers have…
