Here are two things that I don’t know much about that both relate to the iPhone, they are both two similar takes on a gaming platform for the iPhone and iPod. I’ll come out right now and say that I’m much more in favor of Apple’s take on it, but in all fairness I’ve never used either of them. I have tried to use OpenFeint on a few occasions and sign up through a few great apps I have, but it never worked for me. Pocket God and Mini Squadron are two fantastic games that use OpenFeint to keep track of scores, achievements, etc… This is what Apple is also setting out to do with Game Center.
Hey there everyone. It’s about 1:15 in the morning here in the Midwest of the U.S. If you didn’t know I’m a full time student so for one it’s not strange to be up this late trying in vain to do homework and catch up on work. I’m very sleep deprived and have been for the past week. I missed 3 days of classes after my Great Grandma passed away. I decided it was worth the time to go home and be with family instead of keep up with school. I can always make up quizes and tests but not revisit my Grandma’s funeral. I tell you all this just because I’m a person too behind this keyboard. I thought you would appreciate to know what I’ve been doing and why I haven’t posted something nutty about the iPhone since October 26th!
We’re in the clear now to do some reviews of something other than a photo app. If you missed out on any of that then just click HERE and read them all. I know you want to. After a series like that I thought I would come back with a video review of one of my new favorite apps. The app is called Ragdoll Blaster and is made by Backflip Studios, who also make another one of my favorite games called Paper Toss. Ragdoll Blaster if you can guess from the title of the app, is a game that involves you shooting ragdolls out of a cannon and trying to hit a red target. Now that may sound simple, but as each level progresses the tricks to hitting the target become increasingly difficult. You’ll see what I mean in a bit.
It’s only a matter of hours before the iPhone 3.0 software is released. Full of great features like MMS, copy and paste, etc.. so what are we going to do to pass the time? Well being iPhone nuts, we are going to pass the time by playing games on our iPhones until 3.0 is available. By the way, I’ve got a copy of the 3.0 software and will be reviewing it so when it’s officially out tomorrow you guys will know all the tricks and new feaures, inside and out. It’s going to be a great week to be an iPhone owner, especially if it’s your first iPhone.
One last game review is coming your way, but first can I say I’m so glad you put up with my rants and ramblings. I enjoy talking about the iPhone and hopefully through that everyone picks up a different insight or learns something new. But let’s get into it shall we. I think after my stint on these free games we’ll move onto something else, like photography. I’ve got some stuff on that to share soon.
Alright after doing the obligatory healthy app review in between the last game review and this one, I feel a little better about telling you about this game that’s been sitting at the top of the app store for awhile. Luckily it’s being given away for free, and not only that it has 99 levels that come with it again for free! There are plenty of driving games out there like crash bandicoot, etc… but this is the best free one I’ve come across.
First off I hope everyone reading is a big fishing fan, otherwise if you are not it’s going to make this review boring for you! I apologize if fishing isn’t your thing, but bear with me as you may be hooked (hah get it, good one huh?) after we talk about this app.
Happy late Valentine’s Day to all of you iPhone lovers out there. I hope if you have a significant other that you had a great day of love and all that clicheness, haha. I spent my Valentine’s Day in Cincinatti, Ohio playing ultimate frisbee for 6 hours straight. Honestly it was a lot of fun, I’ve found lately that I don’t so much enjoy cliche, romanticness, smooches, etc… so frisbee was good enough for me, haha. Is there anyone from around the Cinci area? We had one lady on our team at this tourney and I’m sure she enjoyed being around all of us guys for her Valentine’s Day just as much as we did. Besides Valentine’s and frisbee I discovered my new favorite game on the iPhone, let me tell you about it.
In the vein of trying to continue to find some fun games to play on the iPhone and share them with you, I’ve got an interesting one for today. It’s a very simple game, but it’s free and worth checking out as a good time waster. It’s not for anyone under 9 years of age apparently, but not because it’s bad or anything. It’s rating comes from what happens if you lose. The monkey bursts into flames and burns. Semi violent, especially for our monkey lovers out there. Don’t call PETA though, it’s all digital!
Here comes another game review straight from me to you, consider it a late Christmas gift as I try and round out the stuff we cover on this website a little more evenly. Now that YouTube supports HD video I’m making one to show you how awesome this app is, and really when I say awesome I mean it. This is one of the greatest apps I’ve come across so far since the launch of the app store. Admittingly, I don’t do near enough browsing through it to really find those gems, but thanks to a friend of mine I came across this app. As a sidenote, if you ever have a great app you want to tell me about DO IT! This app has already provided me with hours of entertainment, and even though it is slightly hard to master at first it isn’t frustrating to play. It goes by the name TouchGrind.
