Oh, nevermind. Just another Threes! clone. What? Y-you mean Swipe & Slash is actually a fun RPG-lite dungeon hack using Threes! as a combat engine? Oh, well why didn't you say so?

North Wind: Trill of Consciousness Review

iPad App - Designed for iPad only
By Rob Thomas on April 30th, 2014
Our rating: starstarstarblankstarblankstar :: AN ILL WIND
North Wind is an adventure/platformer with an amazingly unique gameplay premise that gets swept away on a breeze of sluggish controls and poorly thought-out design.

Easily Make Pixel Art Animations with Disney's Pixel'd App

Posted by Carter Dotson on July 30th, 2012
+ Universal App - Designed for iPhone and iPad

Disney has released a tool to help make pixel art and animation easy. Pixel’d lets users make artwork that shows its pixelation and is proud of it! Users have a default 150x150 canvas to work with, though this can be shrunk to 4x4 or enlarged up to 1024x768. Users can freehand draw, generate lines or shapes, and use color fill to help make their creations. Artists looking for more advanced editing can use 3 modifiable layers to help them in their process.

Canvas backgrounds can be added and interacted with, featuring artwork from various Disney properties. A selection comes with the app for free, and others are available through in-app purchases. It’s possible to create more than just single-frame artwork, as animations up to 20 frames long can be created. Single frame artwork can be exported as PNG or GIF with animations exportable as either animated GIFs or MP4 video files. These can then be exported to the Camera Roll or shared to social networks directly from the app. Finally, it’s possible to team up with a friend using the Buddy Draw feature to collaborate on artwork via wifi.
