Alice in Bomberland

iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

Alice in Bomberland is a violent, whimsical take on the classic novel. Unfortunately, what could have been an outstanding game is marred by repetitive levels and bad controls.

Alice in Bomberland Trailer

Posted by Chris Hall on September 24th, 2009

I don't know what it is about this game that has me so fascinated, maybe it's the Alice in Wonderland theme. Or maybe it's the fact that Alice in Wonderland has been put together with bombs and missiles. Regardless, here is the new trailer... hot of the presses. Enjoy!

Alice in Bomberland? Awesome!

Posted by Chris Hall on September 23rd, 2009

Games based on classic literature always excite me. To me, having that familiarity with the games story, but with the expectation that there will be some kind of twist makes for a great experience. Being as jacked up as the story already is, Alice in Wonderland makes for a great video game adaptation (American McGee's Alice). Sonic Boom's (Puzzlings, Kill All Bugs!) newest game, Alice in Bomberland, takes this Alice in Wonderland story to the next level by presumably introducing bombs. I hope you are as intrigued as I am.

I don't have much info about the game, but here are some details. The game is from the same designer/developer as Topple, has illustrations done by children's book illustrator Mark Meyers, and has the same visual artist as Braid. If you haven't played Braid yet on your Mac, pick it up ASAP, it's so pretty. I have a few screenshots to hold you over until the game comes out, so enjoy! According to the developer, the game should be released in the upcoming weeks.

Puzzlings is a whimsical, kid-friendly match-3 with a focus on item collection. While it's too easy for experienced gamers, it does offer a polished product that should please the casual crowd.

E3 Wrap-up: Canadian Game Studio Bight Games Bringing It Big to the iPhone

Posted by Jeff Scott on June 17th, 2009

At both E3 and WWDC, we had a chance to talk with Stuart Duncan from Canadian gaming studio, Bight Games. They have a number of games coming out this year for the iPhone, published by Sonic Boom.

Tower Defense + Giant 50's Horror Movie Bugs = Kill All Bugs

Kill All Bugs is a tower defense game with a great 50s monster movie feel. This TD game differs from others in that it is much less complex in the setup, but perhaps more complex in the strategy. You only have 3 different towers that are not upgradable. Their unique power is in their ability to work together to increase their power when placed in certain formations.

Another unique feature is that the bugs in the game are a little smarter than your usual TD enemies. They, apparently, will have the ability to avoid defenses or find the route that will damage them the least.

We should see this game soon as the expected release date is mid to late June. Take a look at the preview trailer below for a better idea of how the game plays.

It's Puzzling

Puzzlings is a match 3 type game with lots of twists and a huge collection element. As you play the game you will unlock various clothing items that you can dress your character up with. There are literally thousands of different combinations you can create once you unlock all of the items. The actual game play itself looks like your typical match-3 game, but there are some interesting combos and different matching methods you can do that might breath a little more life into the genre.
