Hello, Wanderers:
Want to see what we thought about exploring the dimension between life and death? Check out our Phantom Rift review!

Phantom Rift from Foursaken Media is a deep adventure/role-playing game that centers around intense battles with enemy monsters. It plays a good deal like Capcom’s Mega Man Battle Network, which thrived on the Game Boy Advance, and veterans of that series should be able to sink right into Foursaken’s title.

But that doesn’t mean surviving the Rift is easy. Here are some tips that will help keep you alive in this strange, dark world.

Starting Out

phantomriftguide_01

  • The questions at the beginning of the game seem to influence the magic spells you receive – When you begin playing Phantom Rift, you’re asked a brief series of questions about who you are. Do you like fighting with friends, or alone? Do you prefer fighting close-up, or from afar? The way in which you answer these questions seems to impact which spells you start the game with. For instance, if you say you prefer fighting up close, you should start off with an assortment of sword spells.
  • Stuck? Talk to Wispin – Wispin is your guide in the Rift. If you’re unsure of what to do next, tap on him to chat. He can help light the way. [Editor's Note: *rimshot*]
  • Use energy sparingly - Early in Phantom Rift, you receive a ring that restores health at the cost of 30 energy. This is a valuable tool, and can mean the difference between life and death. That said, energy is very valuable as it’s also used to buy spells, weapons, and armor. Instead of healing yourself with energy-consuming items, try restoring your health in-battle using spells.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Magic Notion has released their first game (and it’s an odd one): Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker. This dating sim gives you power over peoples’ lives as you match them through your very own dating agency. You’ll get help from the sassy drag queen diva Kitty Powers and her little black book of lonely hearts. As you find love for these desperate patrons you will unlock upgrades for your salon and gift shop, and find new locales to send your clients. You can even connect to Facebook friends to see who’s the matching maestro!

With lines like “Lorks! An errant Arachnid!” being blurted out during dates, the trailer for Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker has already won my heart.

You can download Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker for $2.99 on the App Store.

The original soundtrack for Glorkian Warrior, the funky shoot ‘em up from Pixeljam Games, is now available on Bandcamp. Jam out to the chiptune music composed by Mark DeNardo, a Brooklyn-based composer and performer. Mark used a GameBoy and the program Little Sound DJ to create the 15 songs on the album.

The “Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork” OST is available for download on Bandcamp right now, for $5.00.

Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan is a children’s storybook that emphasizes the importance of going to bed, dreams, and those magical moments right before being tucked in.

Now Kelly Paniagua, author of the award-winning children’s book, is planning to bring an interactive story app based on the very same bedtime story to the App Store. Very soon, in fact. Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan marks the first in a planned series of ten, and the intention is to release an app shortly after each title goes to print.

bedtime05bedtime01The Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan app includes pretty much everything parents would want in an interactive bedtime story: narration, highlighted text to aid with reading along, character voices (supplied by Paniagua’s own daughter as well as her husband, Julian McMahon), animations, and of course some interactive bits. A couple of mini-games have also been included. One involves flying through space collecting ingredients for baking cookies (finishing the game also reveals a recipe for “Galaxy Cookies”), while the other is about finding hidden animals and learning about nocturnal versus diurnal behavior.

What’s most intriguing about Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan is the special Coloring Activity. It’s actually based on Dr. Wayne Dyer’s theory about how what we see, do, and think about right before bed (about 30 minutes or so) can affect both our dreams and our mood when we wake up. Paniagua wanted to know, “What if you implemented this at a developmental age?”

bedtime06The idea is for children to use their imagination and draw up something right before bed, and an “Idea Generator” is also available if they have trouble thinking of something. What they draw and/or the mood it puts them in (preferably happy) should, in theory, have an impact on their dreams. Drawings can be saved from within the app to your device’s camera roll for easy sharing, too.

Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan is available on the App Store right now for $2.99 (no in-app purchases). If you’re interested in the physical book as well, you can pick it up in stores now for $13.95.

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Nitrome, the developers behind Icebreaker: A Viking Voyage has released 8bit Doves: a two-button, Game Boy-styled flying platformer.

Trapped in dream in a four-color world, you’ll need to fly the doves out of the mazes of your imagination while avoiding walls and a variety of traps. As the trailer below likely proves however, that’s unlikely to be very easy throughout the three level packs within.

8bit Doves is available on the App Store now for $2.99.

Star Walk 2 is Like Stargazing with Neil DeGrasse Tyson in Your Pocket

Posted by on August 27th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Star Walk 2, by Vito Technology, aims to bring constellations to life. Users can point their iOS device at the stars and watch as the app identifies and renders 3d models of the celestial bodies that can be turned and enjoyed from different angles.

Star Walk 2 acts as your guide to the night sky by using your current location to find what stars will be visible. You can also search for specific stars, constellations, or satellites and the app will identify where you have to look to find them. Then there’s the Sky Live window, which can show you all the relevant data for your stargazing adventure including sunrise and sunset times, moon phases, and the rise and set times for 4 main planets: Venus, Mercury, Saturn, and Jupiter.

Star Walk 2 also includes functions such as coordinates on each image to make locating your favorite constellation easier, a soft red-mode that preserves your night-vision while using the app, and a Time Machine mode that allows users to see stars in their calculated past and future positions.

You can pick up Star Walk 2 for $2.99 on the App Store.

Big Update For Tough Love To-Do List App, CARROT

Posted by on August 15th, 2014
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Everybody’s favorite abusive To-Do list app, CARROT, has just benefited from a rather substantial update.

The update brings with it a speech synthesizer, a new story chapter to do with Captain Whiskers, and a cowboy cat costume in the Shop N Slack store. For those at level 15, there’s now a new way to quickly add items to your list through swiping down.

60 new rewards can also be earned (according to the developer, they’re mostly cat facts) and there are 5 new challenges to test you.

For the uninitiated, prepare to be insulted regularly by this bizarre motivational tool. There’s no other task management app quite like it, but it’s a great idea.

CARROT is out now on the App Store and is priced at $2.99.

Smartphones are very useful tools for communicating, playing music, finding out information, and generally entertaining you, but they can be dangerous if used while driving. Navdy seeks to alleviate distractions while still allowing you access to all of those functions.

It is being billed as “Google-glass for your car” as, similar to the glasses, the small heads up display (HUD) is designed to sit on your dashboard and project information on a transparent pane in front of you. Navdy is running a 30 day pre-order campaign where they hope to raise $60,000 to get backers and support the initial production.

Navdy is supported by cars made after 1996 as it connects with the auto’s onboard computer (OBD II port). This allows it to display navigation instructions, fuel economy stats, tire-pressure warnings, speed, and more. The HUD can be controlled with voice and simple gestures to help keep drivers focused on the road. It also supports many popular apps such as Google Maps, Spotify, and various social media platforms.

Backers can pre-order Navdy for $299 – a 40% discount from its projected retail price. You can also use Navdy‘s referral program to alert friends and family, and for everyone who buys one based on your referral you receive a $30 discount. If you pre-order you will be able to vote on which smartphone apps and features Navdy should have when it is finalized in 2015.

Huge Update Comes To Duet, Adding 48 New Stages

Posted by on July 29th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

We loved minimalist survival game, Duet, when it was first released last October so we’re pretty sure a forthcoming update for it will make it all the sweeter.

This Thursday you can enjoy the Epilogue Update, which promises to include 48 new epilogue stages, a new storyline, new game features, plus 4 brand new musical remixes.

The original release included 50 stages, so this update very nearly doubles the content already there, and it’s entirely free.

Duet is available now from the App Store priced at $2.99. The update is set to hit the store this Thursday.

Sharknado: The Video Game Available Now. Seriously.

Posted by on July 29th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

We knew it was coming. And yet, despite the warnings it’s still taken up by surprise. Sharknado: The Video Game is here, and there isn’t anything anybody can do about it.

Lets go through a couple of key points, shall we?

The game’s hero, “Fin” (*rimshot*), runs through the streets of Manhattan cutting down flying sharks (technically they’re not flying, but whatever, they’re in the air) with a sword. He’ll also ride another shark into the very center of the sharknado in order to kill it – by which I mean the tornado with sharks in it – with a chainsaw.

Now my eye won’t stop twitching for some reason.

Anyway, Sharknado: The Video Game is available on the App Store right now, for $2.99. You’ve been warned.
