Alright, so who spent some time at one point or another playing the Quoridor board game? For the uninitiated, Quoridor was a popular game throughout the 90s, winning a number of awards during its prime, which was translated into the 2000s through an online format. Simiula took on the challenge of porting this onto the iPod for puzzle and board game enthusiasts, in an attempt to capture the fun and excitement generated by the innovative original. While the entertaining concept is still there, an overall rigid feel which spreads from graphics to controls takes away from what should be pretty simple enjoyment...

Predator is one of my favorite movies of all time. Predator 2 wasn't quite as good but still, it was pretty badass. However, the movies that used the Predator name following those first 2 sucked. I haven't watch the newest movie but having just played the iPhone and iPod Touch game, Predators, I can tell you one thing for sure - it is a whole lot like the first two movies – in other words, it’s awesome. The gratuitous blood, killing and weapons make this everything a Predator game should be...

Slingshot Safari

By |2011-07-10T23:06:28-05:00July 22, 2010|iPhone Reviews|

Slingshot Safari is surprisingly fun. In fact, it’s really wonderful and I guarantee would be a huge hit with any kids you have. The colors, the animals and even the sound and music are all of the highest quality. I say surprising because of the mechanics of its gameplay is completely based upon pulling back a slingshot and shooting some prey (don’t worry, no blood and no real animals killed). However, due to the diversity and settings, this simple gameplay never gets boring. In fact, the main problem with Slingshot Safari is that it ends too soon...

Super QuickHook

When the successor to one of our favorite games to last year was announced, we were understandably delighted. Now that I have had the chance to play it for several hours, I can say it easily lives up to my high expectations and in some ways surpasses them. Super QuickHook is the sequel to last year's critically acclaimed Hook Champ. While the gameplay mechanics are similar in many ways, a few distinct additions and additions by subtraction have been added that make the game all the sweeter. Add in the terrific, updated graphics and it is truly a game that is worth getting...

I’m going to be honest with you. I don’t really get this game. I’ve been playing it for over an hour nonstop and I just don’t get it. The object of the game, I think, is to organize candy in specific patterns. Symmetry plays a role as well but I’m not sure how. Do I organize the candy by type and try to keep the board symmetrical or do I mix and match the candy to come up with elaborate patterns?

Guitar Hero

The rhythm series that started the genre in the first place finally comes to the App Store platform. Since the ubiquitous series started out 7 years ago, we have Guitar Hero come to almost every mainstream platform including the DS and the PC. It was only a matter of time before it made its way to the iPhone and iPod Touch. Perhaps no platform brings more challengers to Activision than the App Store yet Guitar Hero still manages to succeed and even surpass its competition. In fact, in some ways it leaves them in the dust...

The iPad version of Boggle is as close to the actually board game as you can get. You even have to shake the device to mix up the letters to start each game. When the game first opens a well laid out menu appears with your choices; Quick Play, Advanced Play, Achievements, Options, and More EA Games. I like the Quick Play option because it uses the same rules that I used when playing the board game long ago...
