Thursday Appdate: Planet Plop

Tweet My first round of Planet Plop from PiVi lasted all of three seconds. Appearances, I quickly learned, can be deceiving: despite the lighthearted and cartoonish visuals, the upbeat music, and a potentially juvenile name like Planet Plop, I found myself playing a game that was startlingly difficult — demanding precise control and quick reflexes, and built around [...]

Apple Got Everybody Presents for the App Store’s Birthday

Tweet Five years old is such a precocious age. That’s how old the Apple App Store is this week (where does the time go?), and as indicated by various parenting guides, our wonderful little five-year-old platform is indeed a “creative and enthusiastic problem solver” with its myriad productivity apps, and it most certainly “abounds with [...]

iDied: LIMBO is Out for iOS

Tweet The good thing about watching a scary movie or playing a terrifying game is that, if things get too freaky, you can just put it down and walk away for a while. So, when we heard that Playdead (a TriplePoint client) was putting their award-winning and unsettling game LIMBO on mobile devices so it [...]

PvZ2 F2P? OK

Tweet As much fun as we’ve had with the new Facebook iteration of horticultural tower defense game Plants vs. Zombies — namely, Plants vs. Zombies Adventures — we’ve continued to hungrily desire the full-fledged sequel that PopCap announced a while back.

Thursday Appdate: Tetris Blitz

Tweet One could start this examination with a brief look back at the ubiquity of Tetris, but anecdotal experiments are much more fun: start humming Korobeiniki right now, wherever you are. See how many people either join in, or ask why you’re humming the Tetris music. Bonus points for you, by the way, if you knew the [...]

Temple Run 2 Tries Harder to Kill You

Tweet Temple Run 2, much like its predecessor, is a game nobody can ever win. You run and you run, and perhaps you cover a long distance and feel pretty good about it, but ultimately you fling yourself off a cliff or into the murderous arms of a hell-monkey. It’s a game about losing. As [...]

Thursday Appdate: Candymeleon

Tweet Recently on Gamasutra, BitMonster’s Lee Perry wrote a very insightful blog on an often intangible facet of game design: player feedback, that bit of game “feel” that makes a game not just fun, but injects fun into the basic actions and events on-screen. Candymeleon, a selection by Bulkypix from the ‘New and Noteworthy’ section in [...]

Storm Some Fruit and Blast That Fruit

Tweet If you’ve ever had a mouse invade your home, you know the damage those little monsters can do when they put their minds to it. Chewing holes in your furniture, getting into your food — did you know why, though? Turns out they hate your fruit. Hate it so much. That’s the very (maybe) true [...]
