Why Don’t You All Just BoxOff?

Why Don’t You All Just BoxOff?

What is the nature of addiction? The Oxford dictionary defines it as ‘the state of being enslaved to a habit or practice or to something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming‘. Is it safe to assume that addiction is subjective, that it effects everyone differently? There’s certainly such a thing as an addictive personality, which can have a bearing on the severity of the case. I wouldn’t have previously described myself as fitting that particular…

Noodles Now: The Fastest Food Around

Noodles Now: The Fastest Food Around

As Blade Runner ably demonstrated to us back in 1982, the future shall be dominated by the Chinese. This was due to Los Angeles having such a large immigrant Chinese population at the time of pre-production. Following the demographic trend, by 2019 the filmmakers guessed, the population would be significant enough to dominate most of the city. Or maybe Ridley just though big neon kanji signs were cool. Either way, in that dystopian future, noodles…

Matchmaking Wines With The Glorious Grapeful

Matchmaking Wines With The Glorious Grapeful

Picture this. You’re sat in a smart restaurant, possibly on a first date, or, to raise the stakes a little, the first date with your partner’s parents in tow. You’re already a little on edge; anxiety’s got you swallowing too much. Now here comes the waiter, clasping a wine list. Oh God, wine? He hands it to you, the nearest person to him, your hand extending automatically to receive it. All heads turn. They wait,…

GoodReader 4: Organisation Taken To The Next Level

The new year is here, Christmas is over and the January blues have well and truly settled in. Surely there’s nothing to enhance the melancholy of these dull, gloomy nights? Oh yes, the thought of exams, getting a new job, moving house. With these tasks looming over us, organisation is key to success. But pessimists, never fear! There’s a hero around the corner! Whereas the new year is an exciting time, the things that make it…

FLIP Sports: The Ultimate Fantasy (Football) Thriller

FLIP Sports: The Ultimate Fantasy (Football) Thriller

There’s such a thing as a perfect game of football. Apparently, a perfect game consists of the same elements as a perfect drama. Contrary to what you might think, to have your team completely trounce the opposition isn’t the most satisfying experience. Instead, it is a victory clawed from the jaws of defeat. A game of twists and turns, where your team manages to scrape a win from an almost equally strong enemy. A match-long see-saw…

EnerPlex Jumpr Stack 3, Get The Extra Charge You Need On The Go

One of the crowning glories of modern technologies is not just the internet, the mobile phone or the numerous digital cameras that have revolutionised photography, it has to be the technology we know as the smartphone. It really is an all-singing, all-dancing device that does just about everything! But its dynamic features come at a price. Today’s smartphones can take digitally enhanced images up 12 megapixels in many models, high definition video and can connect…

Warship Solitaire: A Cool Cruise In Nostalgia

Warship Solitaire: A Cool Cruise In Nostalgia

Remember Battleship? The cool blue plastic game set with the red and white pins? Most often played with a sibling or similar age relative, I have yet to encounter a game capable of producing similar instances of rage. The look of glee in the eyes of your enemy as they realise they’ve found your five piece vessel and destruction of your most valuable weapon in your armada is imminent is not something you forget in…

Pressing Dates In Hand With Glass Planner

Pressing Dates In Hand With Glass Planner

Here’s a confession: I don’t use a planner, diary or a calendar. Never have. My reasoning behind this startling stance is simple and long maintained; a calendar doesn’t prioritise. So, if you’ve got a number of things happening on the same day, or if you have one thing that suddenly takes precedence, your calendar isn’t going to work with you to readjust. You alone have to readjust. Electronic calendars are fiddly things, and to add…

Have A Crack At General Knowledge With The Genius Trivia Crack

Have A Crack At General Knowledge With The Genius Trivia Crack

Picture this Holy Grail of app development; you’re a small independent studio based in a part of the world not exactly renowned for pioneering technological advancements, let’s say Latin America. You release a few apps, first of all a stock market based number, then a couple of word game ones. They do well. Then they do very well. And then, in late 2013, your latest app, a trivia based mano y mano showdown, literally conquers…

Breezy Leaf: Unbeleafably Addictive

Breezy Leaf: Unbeleafably Addictive

The best simple, yet extremely engaging game I have ever played is Densha De Go! (Go By Train) 3, an extraordinary little number for an obscure platform I can’t quite remember (could’ve been the Sega Saturn). For perhaps obvious reasons, the game (and indeed series) was only released in Japan. The premise involves the player operating a number of different trains around the railways of the metropolis of Tokyo. It’s challenges were nothing more than stopping…

A Messaging App That’s Quite Dashing

A Messaging App That’s Quite Dashing

How many text messages on average do you send per day? How often do you check your Facebook news feed to see what your friends are sharing? If you’re like me, you probably text and check Facebook numerous times throughout the day. What if I told you there’s an app out there that could let you combine texting and sharing online content, would you download it? It will require you to break free from the native text messaging app…

ArkMC: Come Together. Right Now. In Front Of Me.

‘Christ, what the hell is UPnP?’, I thought to myself as I read up on this particular app. The conundrum had me scurrying to Wikipedia to find the answer (that most trusted fountain of communal knowledge). UPnP (Universal Plug and Play) is in fact not a courier service, but a set of networking protocols that allows various devices to discover each other’s presence on the same network. Though the explanation sounds like a tagline for…

There’s No Place I’d Rather ShutterBee

There’s No Place I’d Rather ShutterBee

If you’re anything like me, the well-intentioned photographs you take while travelling will serve two ultimate purposes; firstly, they will momentarily irritate anyone who happens to be scrolling through your Facebook or Twitter feed at the time who isn’t directly related to you. Secondly, they will clog up harddrive space on your computer. That seems to be the extent of it from my experience. If you’re the same, you might feel like that’s a little…

Survivors: The Quest Brings Epic Scale RPG To iPad

Survivors: The Quest Brings Epic Scale RPG To iPad

RPGs (Role Playing Games to the uninitiated) are my favourite type of game. They afford a gaming experience like no other, often going on for weeks at a time. They usually have an emotional hook with an epic story, and ways to progress and power up the characters as you move along. This week, prolific developer G5 Games have entered the RPG fray with their mini epic Survivors: The Quest, a tale of three people…
