The Smartphone Spacecraft Toy – Space Hawk

spacehawkboxThis spacecraft toy looks like it’s from the 1980s’s Silverhawks cartoon show, remember that?  But, this is Space Hawk from Ravensburger.  Space Hawk combines the toy element, while adding the smartphone (sold separately) interactivity and board game aesthetics into one.  Fun for kids and adults trying to save the galaxy!

PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist (Android) Mini Review

So this past week I was browsing the ‘Play Store’ on my phone for something new to play.  I needed something new to play that would keep me busy until Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection comes out next week.  Enter PewDiePie: Legend of the Brofist by Outerminds Inc.  It is a cute little 8-bit platformer.  The game is something like a Mario… or Adams Family for the SNES, except with a bit wonkier controls.  You may find it a bit difficult to control your character while jumping in the air.  The touch-screen is a little sensitive, or at least it was for me.

It’s a short game, something that you could probably beat in one day; if you play on easy mode that is.  Now I’m not a big PewDiePie fan, I’ll admit that I have watched a good number of his videos, however in this game there seems to be references to his videos that only loyal fans will understand.  Friends of his are also in this game as playable characters; if you’re not a fan of playing as PewDiePie, then maybe you’ll like playing as Markiplier… or how about CinnamonToastKen… or Cry?  Personally, I played JackSepticEye all the way through the game once I unlocked him.  Speaking of all these YouTubers, there is also voice acting in this game, which means you get to hear these YouTubers give out some cringe worthy performances.

I know it sounds like I am bashing the game, and that is not what I want to do.  I actually really liked this game.  It’s really really tough on the harder difficulties.  I’ve only beat the first two levels on lvl. 2 difficulty; don’t judge.  If you have $5 to spare, I would recommend this game, and you don’t even have to be a fan of Felix or his friends to enjoy this game.  If you’re looking for a mobile game to pass the time, then this one is for you.  So try it out, have fun, and go ahead and rage while you play it on the harder difficulties.

Fallout Shelter (Android) Mini Review

Fallout ShelterThis game has only been out for about three weeks, on Android, and it doesn’t seem that I’ll stop playing it anytime soon.  When Bethesda announced this game back during E3, I was excited to play something new that was Fallout related; though I would have to wait two months to get my hands on the Android version, but it was worth the wait.  Not a day has passed since I haven’t been on this game; leveling up their abilities or sending them out in the Wasteland.

Fallout Shelter Vault

The game is simple enough.  You are the Overseer or your own Vault, sort of like the big boss, and your job is to build your Vault while making sure the people that live in your vault don’t die.  You’ll have to build water treatment plants, diners and power plants to be able to keep your Vault up and running.  While running your Vault, you’re also going to have to deal with fires breaking out, Radroach and Mole Rat infestations, Raider invasions, and the scariest of all… Deathclaw invasions.  I’ve had two Deathclaw invasions in a row and let me tell you, it is the worst thing that can happen to you.  Your power, water and food storage goes down quickly and they can (and will) kill your Vault dwellers so fast that you had better equip every dweller with good weapons to defend themselves.

Fallout Shelter Deathclaws

I really don’t know how long this game lasts.  Is it never ending? Will it game over once you reach your 1000th vault dweller?  I’m not sure if I’ll ever find out that answer because once Fallout 4 comes out this November, like so many others, I will probably be playing this game a whole lot less.  It’s a fun game.  Even if you are not a fan of the Fallout series you can still have fun, trying to see how big you can make your Vault.  Thank you Bethesda, for such a simple yet addictive and fun game; I can’t wait to see how your main title is going to turn out.

I give this mobile game an 8/10.  So long from Vault 47.

The Hottest Drawing Game on the Planet Right Now

Main Menu for Draw Something

Draw Something is my current distraction on the iPhone. If you haven’t heard about OMGPop’s Draw Something yet, you’ve been living under a rock!

It’s best described as a cross between Pictionary and Scrabble. The gameplay is pretty simple. At the start of the game, you choose one of three words to draw, draw the image, and then sends the image to your friend. Your buddy then guesses the word from the image and sends an image to back to guess. Moves are done in a play-by-mail method. Since this is a casual pace, there’s no urgency for the players. Whenever time permits, a move can be made.
