Aquaria Review: A colorful 2D adventure game

Aquaria is a side scrolling whether game by indie developer Bit Blot, that was developed for desktops and later ported over to Android. While this game is no longer available at all that i can find, I played a previously purchased version for Android and thoroughly enjoyed this game. Aquaria’s Android version was previously available on Humble Bundle’s website. I have reached out to the developer to see if there’s an intention to reinstate to Android at some point in the future, but I have yet to hear back. Oddly enough, it’s still available for iOS for $4.99, as well as on the developer’s website for desktop machine’s for $9.99. So whether you have been sitting around on an Android copy (or elect to hold out hope for a possible re-release), or choose to go another route with it, it’s a great game no matter what platform you choose to play it on.


Interview with Lead Game Designer René Laurent of SuperHippo Games about their latest game Pirate Legends TD

SuperHippo Games, based in Ireland, released Pirate Legends TD late last week in the Play Store. Yes, I know what you are thinking. There are an abundance of tower defense games out there. However, few of them take place on the high seas and are full of such robust action as displayed in Pirate Legends. I was given the opportunity to find out more about the game, the company that produced it and how SuperHippo plans to impact the mobile gaming arena. René Laurent, Lead Game Designer for Pirate Legends TD was gracious enough to answer a few questions for me.


Fighting Crime, Trying to Save the World — A Review of Powerpuff Girls: Defenders of Townsville

A decade after the series has ceased airing, The Powerpuff Girls remain a global staple of pop-culture, so much so that even Christian Bale has been recorded singing the show’s infectious pop theme. With the planned revival of the franchise, led by the recent one-shot special, Powerpuff Girls: Dance Pantsed,it makes sense that Cartoon Network wishes to drive momentum by reintroducing the characters to other mediums. However, in the realm of video games, licensed properties are a bit of a sore spot.
