Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar ::
Box of Enigmas is a decent collection of brain-training mini-games that could stand to have its controls tweaked and pay structure completely overhauled.

Pocket God Sees 43rd Update - Also Predicts Armageddon

Posted by Rob Rich on February 3rd, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad
Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: A GOD AMONG APPS :: Read Review »

Pocket God is still going strong, blasting right through update number forty-three (43!). The newest episode, "Killing Time," deals with the kind of stuff that turned Michael J. Fox, Christopher Lloyd, Deloreans and use of the word "paradox" into national phenomena. In other words, it has to do with futzing around with time. Like time, time. Not wasting a few minutes at the bus stop, time. Players will be able to visit the new Apocalypse Island, home of a multi-roomed temple that includes a time-shifting chamber. It also houses a creepy Aztec calendar that's counting down to 11:11am, December 21st, 2012.

This is just the first of many apocalypse-themed updates, according to Bolt. Each of the temple's many rooms features some sort of Armageddon-like power, each to be opened with future updates, but at the moment no other specifics have been revealed. Bolt will be continuing to release more doomsday content over the course of the next 10 months. Hopefully they'll be able to move on to a new theme after that, assuming the world still exists.

Pocket God in all its dark-humored glory can, as usual, be downloaded from the App Store for $0.99. The other 95% of iOS users who already own it can simply update it like they normally would to get the new stuff.

War of the Worlds Receives 12th and Final Minigame, Celebrates With Sale

Posted by Rob Rich on February 3rd, 2012

Our rating: starstarstarstarblankstar :: LOTS OF POTENTIAL :: Read Review »

It feels like it's been ages since I first set eyes upon Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds Minigame Adventure. Back then it consisted of a mere two games. Now the last of them have been added, bringing the total up to the initially promised twelve.

It makes for an extensive collection of mini-genres, from the "find the item" graphical adventure style of the Prequel through the old-school puzzle gameplay of The Red Weed (Part 1) and ultimately drawing to a close with the arcade-like viral infection of Dead London. It's a collection that I'd easily recommend to fans of H.G. Wells' classic tale for the typical going rate of $5. However, in celebration of Minigame Adventure's completion the price is getting a temporary 60% price cut for the weekend (2/3 - 2/5).

It should go without saying that being able to grab a collection of a dozen well-made, War of the Worlds-themed mini-games for $2 is significant. Even if it should, I feel the need to reiterate it. Both for dramatic purposes and because it would be foolish for fans of the novel/movies to pass this up. So here I go: Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of the War of the Worlds Minigame Adventure, a title which offers twelve mini-games, is currently on sale for $2. It's a ridiculously good deal, and one that I'd recommend jumping on before it's over.

Wicket - The Beginning has all the trappings of a clever rpg-lite inspired task management game. Save the lack of any real point, that is.

Flick NBA Basketball is designed with the on-the-go gamer in mind. While the games do go by very quick, you will find that some of it is a bit too easy. Fortunately for you (and me for that matter), the game has a variety of play options which makes the o
