Republique Episode 3: Ones & Zeroes is Available Now

Posted by on October 17th, 2014
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It’s finally happened. Today, Republique has passed the halfway point. Episode 3: Ones & Zeroes is now available.

This latest (and longest) episode has Hope attempting to bring down her captors by exposing the truth, with a little help from the local newspaper’s editor-in-chief. The propagandized government (if you could call it that) controlled newspaper. Seems like a bit of a conundrum.

You can get your hands on Republique for $4.99, and you can download the latest episode for $2.99. You could also spend $11.99 for the season pass for episodes 3-5 if you already have episode 2, or $14.99 for the whole season pass (episodes 2-5).

Mochi Bits has released their relaxing yet challenging space-based puzzle game, ORBB. In ORBB, players are tasked with jumping from planet to planet while collecting all of the stars along the way.

Hey There, Kittens:
How did we rank on Kitty Powers’ scale of success? Check out our Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker review to find out!

Finding your own true love is never easy, let alone finding it for other people. Kitty Powers’ Matchmaker makes matchmaking fun, though. You get to send couples out on dates, coach them through small talk, and mark them with Cupid’s arrow – sometimes literally. If everything goes well, you’ll get a wedding invite. If things go badly – well, there are other fishies in the sea, right?

Here are a few tips that will help you help others get lucky in love.


Starting Out

kittypowersguide_01

  • When you unlock the salon, tap on the question mark to get Kitty’s opinion on outfits, etc – Once you learn a bit about the art of matchmaking, you unlock the salon. Here you can change your clients’ clothes, hairstyle, and other features to make them more desirable. Tap the question mark block to get Kitty to tell you what personality types are attracted to a particular set of clothing or a certain hairstyle.
  • Use profile tabs to shuffle between general info, likes, and personality – When a lovelorn client shows up on your doorstep, make sure to read their profile thoroughly. That means combing through all the tabs on file: their general information, what they like, and their personality traits.
  • As you level-up, you learn more about clients’ personalities – Occasionally, leveling-up rewards you with the ability to perceive clients’ personality traits. In other words, the more you play, the easier it becomes to match up lovebirds.

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.

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.
