Democrats and Republicans will Have Fun with Mr Trumpy

May 06, 2016 by macjeff

Are you a Democrat? A Republican? This is one time when it doesn’t matter. Mr Trumpy lets everyone have fun with this lighthearted approach to the current political season.

Free through the iTunes Store, this app is a fun twist on the popular run-jump gaming format.

Features:

The idea of a run-jump-fly format for an app is anything but new, but this app takes the fun of this simple concept in gameplay to an all new level.

Mr Trumpy, by Scott Singer, gives players the fun of controlling the app’s main character through all of the levels of the app–a main character who is the the inspiration behind the name of the game.

However, despite his current political actions, Mr Trumpy is far from being a serious political app.

Instead, the app lets you control a comical character of “Mr Trumpy” through various levels of run-jump-fly mazes. Levels are appropriately difficult; it will probably take you awhile to get the hang of the speed of Mr. Trumpy, but it is doable.

Starting out, the pace of the challenges/obstacles of the app is definitely appropriate. In-app ads do play between games though, so these slow down your chance of getting into sort of rhythm of gameplay.

Appearance and Layout:

Graphics aren’t the strong point of this app, but a focus on appearance definitely isn’t the intent of this app either.

In-app character’s heads tend to look a bit blurry at times, but the identity of characters is never really in doubt; you can certainly tell who everyone is meant to represent in Mr Trumpy.

Likewise, the background graphics are nothing particularly praiseworthy, but this lack in detail doesn’t really detract from the overall focus of the app.

The layout of Mr Trumpy, on the other hand, does not leave any room for complaints. It’s easy to get around the app, and no introductory videos are needed at all.

Value:

This is a free app, but you “pay” for your entertainment with frequent ads. While it’s understood that free apps needs to be able to generate profit somehow, the frequency of these ads makes it hard to really get into a rhythm with the game; in-app ads tend to be pretty long video style ones, and you’re probably more likely to close the app instead of waiting around to try the level again.

Overall, Mr Trumpy is an entertaining little app, but it’s hard to recommend it over other similar run-jump games (unless, of course, you truly do love to get to be the one to control Mr Trump).

download (11)Mr Trumpy requires iOS 6.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad.

Stop Crushing Candy and Give Glass Balls a Shot

May 03, 2016 by macjeff

Glass Balls iPhone Game

Glass Balls iPhone Game

In the sea of match 3 games such as Candy Crush and Bejeweled, Glass Balls stands out from the crowd. This game from ZF Digital differs from all of the similar games with the unique background and graphics, even if it isn’t too revolutionary.

Glass Balls is great for users that love match 3 puzzle games and are looking for a fun new challenge. It is great for new users too and it is obvious that the developers put in a lot of work to create a spectacular game.

Concept and Gameplay

The concept is well-known, but in this game there are adjustments to make things look more interesting and unique. You need to connect at least 3 game colored glass balls to destroy them.

The gameplay is thus familiar and it is truly functional going at just about the perfect pace. Glass Balls can really be a great past time as it is smartly thought out and wonderfully implemented.

Glass Balls iPhone Game

Glass Balls iPhone Game

In addition to its polished looks, this game is using a great physics engine so the gameplay is terrific. There aren’t any grids (like in 90% of the other match 3 puzzle games) and you can connect the balls in any direction and they can go anywhere.

Of course, the more you connect, the more points you will get. They’ve done a great job with the graphics and sound, because the effects are indeed amazing and highly enjoyable.

Features

Whereas you need to connect three balls to eliminate them, connecting more will earn you more points and there are “special bombs” that will triple or seriously boost your score.

This game also features 3 different game modes including Classic, which is fantastic. You need to race against the timer and that makes things really exciting, especially as you progress.

In the Rush mode the glass balls will come up to you continuously and they will speed up gradually. You need to be fast and effective because when the bowl fills up, you will lose the game.

The Infinite Mode is far more relaxing. You can finish your game and post your score whenever you want.

This great feature of choosing a game mode depending on your mood is nice. If you think you have achieved a good high score, you can compare it with other players or your friends on the leaderboard where you will find tons of Achievements.

Conclusion

Great graphics, unique set ups, cool sound effects, beautiful typography and 3 different game modes are enough to make this one of the best match 3 games for your iOS device. With the additional challenges available in the Game Center, it gets even more entertaining.

This is definitely not one of those low quality match 3 game reskins; it is a cool, professional and enjoyable game.

glassballs-qrGlass Balls requires iOS 7.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. A small expedited fee was paid by the developer to speed up the publication of this review.
