Our rating: starstarhalfstarblankstarblankstar :: CLUNKY BUILDING
A shadow of the franchise it's based upon, ANNO: Build an Empire isn't a very good freemium city builder.

SimplePlanes, from the Makers of SimpleRockets, is Now Available on the App Store

Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: FLIGHT CONTROL :: Read Review »

Do you have fond memories of playing SimpleRockets? Well, maybe "fond" is the wrong word. I mean those things are awfully prone to blowing up. But anyway, if you have a special place in your heart set aside for the madcap rocket-building sim, you should probably make room for the follow-up that just released on the App Store: SimplePlanes.

Much like SimpleRockets, SimplePlanes tasks you with engineering a very complex piece of machinery, then trying to keep it in one piece. This time you'll be snapping various parts together to make all sorts of aircraft - even some with VTOL (Vertical Take Off and Landing) abilities. Where it gets ridiculous (in a good way) is in how pieces of your craft can break off as you crash into things or get shot at, which can have a pretty big impact on performance.

If you're in the mood to fly seemingly impossible aircraft that you've cobbled together yourself, you can grab SimplePlanes off the App Store now for $1.99.

It Came From Canada: Tiny Tower Vegas

Posted by Jordan Minor on July 29th, 2014

If you go to a casino, you might make a lot of money. If you run a casino, you’re guaranteed to make a lot of money. The choice seems pretty obvious. So while waiting for your shady real estate deals to move forward, get prepared with Tiny Tower Vegas, the latest follow-up to the smash hit sim Tiny Tower. We become mini casino moguls in this latest edition of It Came From Canada!

Tiny Tower Vegas will feel instantly familiar to fans of the original. Players build their gambling empire floor by floor while keeping customers happy and business flowing. New floors need new employees, and players can choose between who the best person for the job is and who is the most affordable. Customize the tower by putting pyramids or Greek statues on the roof, changing interior décor, and even sprucing up the elevator design. Players can also upgrade the elevator’s speed since they’ll be operating it by hand quite often to get guests where they want to go. And it’s all presented in the same great, low-key pixel art style.

But of course, the Las Vegas setting comes with its own demands - even if this seems based on new, classy, family friendly Vegas instead of old, seedy, good Vegas. While some new floors will be the occasional taco bar in need of restocking, the gambling is where the real action lives. Players can try their luck on slot machines and earn extra cash alongside customer revenue. Once the hot streak ends, would-be pit bosses can check up on how their “bitizen” guests are doing by reading the “BitBook” social network, or just sit back and watch the fireworks - the only things brighter than the massive glowing signs.

Current Tiny Tower players shouldn’t expect Tiny Tower Vegas to completely reinvent the wheel after its soft launch phase. It’s got some new ideas, so it’s not just a reskin, but it’s so close to the original it’s more spin-off or expansion pack than sequel. But you can decide for yourself once it fully launches.

Evergreen Studios Announces Release Date for New Game, Tales Of Honor: The Secret Fleet

Posted by Tre Lawrence on April 10th, 2014

Evergreen Studios has announced that its upcoming game, Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet, will be available for iOS devices via the App Store on April 24.

Timed to match the time period of the recently released 'Tales of Honor: On Basilisk Station' comics, the game follows the action of a newly minted naval academy cadet looking to save the day. For fans of David Weber's Honor Harrington, it should be a real treat.

Evergreen senior executives Scott Kroopf and Richard Browne are eager to the game hit the App Store. “Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet is the next phase in the expansion of the Tales of Honor story world,” says Kroopf. “Now gamers can discover the unique battle tactics and enjoy the military authenticity of the Honorverse. The game, like the recently released comic, is intended to function as a standalone experience, yet we're designing them to be complementary. Our goal is to make it easy for fans of all types to explore the rich universe that David Weber has created."

Tales of Honor: The Secret Fleet will be available for free. The second comic issue of Tales of Honor: On Basilisk Station will be available in comic stores and digitally on Comixology.com on April 30.
