Glowsticks At The Ready For A Starific Experience

Glowsticks At The Ready For A Starific Experience

If you’ve ever been to Cyber-dog in Camden Town, London, looked around at the strange, colourful, alien rave gear and wondered what it would be like if you dropped ecstasy, turned into a star and started playing a mashup of space invaders and pong, then the concept of Starific – Endless Arcade Reactor by developer Alex Gierczyk might seem somewhat familiar to you and not all together mental (like it is for the rest of…

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,…

Back to School: Must Have Apps

The laptop is going the way of the dinosaur for a great many students from Kindergarten through college. According to Pew Internet more than half of all teens aged 13 to 17 in the first half of 2015 had access to a tablet, while 87 percent could access a laptop or desktop computer. Even outside of those two devices 91 percent of teens use the Internet on some sort of mobile device, whether it is…

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…

The acclaimed Pac-Man Championship Edition DX has been shrunk onto mobile

The acclaimed Pac-Man Championship Edition DX has been shrunk onto mobile

One of the most popular and critically acclaimed entries in the Pac-Man franchise, Pac-Man Championship Edition DX, has been shrunk onto iOS and Android by Bandai Namco and is available right now. It features the very same classic arcade gameplay you’ve grown up with but shrunk down for shorter mobile playing sessions. Reflexes are still a requirement if you want to snack on all pellets, power-ups, and ghosts to whizz up those leaderboards. All five…

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

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…

Best Student Job/Breeziest Move With Bellhops Moving Service App

Best Student Job/Breeziest Move With Bellhops Moving Service App

Student jobs are rarely glamorous, in fact, they’re usually downright grubby. When you’re in need of a job with flexible hours and the ability to take weeks off at a time (be it studying for exams or an O-week nonstop rave) the trade-off is often being elbow deep in greasy, sudsy water, scrubbing away at a skillet that ‘Chef’ doesn’t think is clean enough. For me, it was weekend work in a local creperie; something…

Fun, Frocks And Frolicks With Girl’s Day Out Slots App | App Review

We’ve all been there: walking down the street, going about our business, perhaps picking up some groceries, when all of a sudden, “HELLLOOOO HANDSOME!” knocks us for six. With a quickened pace and head down, whistles and claps ensue. Was it my fault I was blessed with such a beautiful bottom? Why can’t they just leave me alone? I’m only a man! Then, of course, their friend joins them and you realise that you’re mistaken…

Get Fly With King Of Bling Slots App | App review

For the large part I’d say I’m a pacifist by nature, but reach across the table at my plate of fries and we may have a problem. However, in the gladiatorial world of professional boxing, it’s a much different story. It’s athleticism at its peak, a fierce and challenging struggle round to round and I imagine trying to keep a tactical wit about you whilst being walloped across the chops is no easy feat. So, upon…

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…

Get Lost In Space With Starry Night!

Get Lost In Space With Starry Night!

Despite sounding like it could be a Van Gogh-themed painting app (or indeed a Don McLean-themed musical app) and featuring a concept that wouldn’t be out of place in the final chapters of Revelations, Starry Night! is, fortunately or unfortunately, none of those things. It is, in fact, a minigame which relies on an addictive little hook to keep players engaged. We won’t pretend like we haven’t seen these sort of games before; there are…

If the answer is yes… then you are probably addicted to football and what you really need to fix your addiction, is a dedicated football app to satisfy your thirst for football knowledge. The next problem on the list is that there are…

Full Tilt Addictiveness With Dot Worlds

What had you achieved by the time you were 11-years-old? For me, the year was 1999; I’d managed to kiss a girl behind the bike sheds, get into a decent secondary school, and maybe design a character or two for a comic book epic I had planned. I also had completed Zelda: Ocarina of Time without the aid of the internet, which is no mean feat I assure you, but sadly outside the scope of…

Oozzat!?: 8 Out Of 10 Secret Agents Agree

Oozzat!?: 8 Out Of 10 Secret Agents Agree

I’ve just finished reading a book called ‘I Am Pilgrim’, which tells the story of a covert agent sent to Turkey in a last ditch attempt to stop a catastrophic terrorist attack on the US. Because it’s a spy thriller, there’s constant talk of the ‘secret world’, about how every phone conversation everywhere is monitored by a classified system called ‘Echelon’ and how everyone’s past lives and histories are there for the taking by hackers,…

My AppProfile: No One Knows You Better Than Your iPhone!

What’s the one thing that knows you inside out? Your partner? Your best friend? Your cat (hopefully not)? Well, none of the above. That’s right, it’s your iPhone!  Your handy little pocket buddy who keeps your secrets, knows what you like and connects you to the world.  The majority of us cannot live without our beloved companions and cannot function if we lose them. I know from experience as I once did a roly-poly across…

Top Mobile Applications for Gamers

Choose Your Genre An incredible £23 billion was spent worldwide on mobile gaming apps last year, with even more being projected to spent this year. Whilst some game developers have struggled with their instant shot to fame (look at the Flappy Bird debacle), most indie gamers see mobile app making as the best way to make a name for themselves in the overpopulated programming market. By looking at the most popular app types, and some…
