Save Adorable Ocean Critters at the Aptly-Named Rescue Reef

Posted by Rob Rich on June 22nd, 2012

SGN, creators of the freemium animal shelter sim Fluff Friends Rescue, are back with a new project. It’s not exactly a radical departure as Rescue Reef still involves rescuing wayward animals, but this time it’s all about the sea life. And I’ve never seen more adorable fish.

Rescue Reef is indeed another free to play animal shelter (of a sort) sim, only this time the goal is to nurture and release as opposed to nurture and adopt. Players will have the chance to save and tend to multiple sea creatures including various crustaceans, seagoing mammals, and all kinds of fish. Even sharks. Cute sharks. It also features daily deals, regular updates with new items and such (Orca whales being the latest addition), and even teaches players a bit about sea life.

Rescue Reef is available on the App Store right now for free. If anyone out there has even wanted to play the part of an oceanic conservationist but doesn’t have the sea-legs for it, now is the time.

Fluff Friends Rescue Review

+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

It turns out connecting the "town-building" free-to-play model with running an animal shelter isn't as awkward as it sounds. In fact, it's downright addicting.

FREEday 1/6/12 - "The Best Things in Life are FREE"

Posted by Rob Rich on January 6th, 2012

Just like that, we find ourselves in 2012. I'm going to side-step the expected talk of apocalypse and instead focus on resolutions. Those promises people make to themselves in an attempt to break nasty habits or set major changes in motion. We all make 'em and we all tend to break 'em. Sometimes. Okay, most of the time. What can I say? Healthy food usually tastes like cardboard. Although I have to admit I've finally managed to develop a taste for yogurt after roughly 28 years of trying. Anyway, before the inevitable failures start to set in I've got a small list of games that will keep the "spend less money" hopefuls on-track. At least for a little while.

Battle Legend Infinity - I'm fairly certain that this is a new thing. Combining old-school turn-based RPG battles with endless wave survival, I mean. At least, I think it is. Whether or not that's true, it's a neat idea. The classic video game character "knock-offs" are a nice touch, too.

Legendary Heroes - Two teams. Three heroes. Four unique abilities apiece. Legendary Heroes isn't just another castle defense iOS game. It's the same basic idea, but this time the emphasis is on managing hero units and building complimentary teams of three instead of strategically churning out cannon fodder.

Turtle Isles - Guiding wayward turtles around a beach a-la ChuChu Rocket. By tapping starfish. Heck of a concept. Sure it's missing the bizarre space mice but that doesn't mean it's not worth checking out. So, who's going to help these slowpokes pair up?

Scramble With Friends Free - Remember Boggle? Of course. I mean, who doesn't, right? Well now we can play a facsimile, complete with special power-ups (freeze time, etc...) on-the-go. Anytime, anywhere. Methinks a certain other multiplayer word game is going to find itself facing some unexpected competition.

Fluff Friends Rescue - I have to give The Humane Society credit, I never would have expected them to find a way to incorporate their usual dealings into a genuinely interesting game. But that's exactly what's been done with Fluff Friends Rescue. Think "town-building freemium" game, only instead of constructing stores and homes players will be setting up their own animal shelter. Also, it's super-adorable.
