Time Chaos is the next great game from Orange Pixel, and I must admit, the more and more I play thier games, the more I love this developer. The game brings me straight back to the late eighty’s and doesn’t let me go.
First and foremost, I must say that this is the first 3D isometric RPG I have played on a little screen. I have played many 2D RPG’s and they play very well. With that said 3D isometric does not transition all that well in one glaring and very important area. But with that aside, if this is what we have to look forward to for Android gaming then I must say we are all in luck!
Radiant is the type of game that begs the question to be asked, is keeping things simple a bad idea? Sometimes it is, keeping things simple like taking a old formula and not adding a few ideas of your own, usually makes what would be a great game, terrible. Luckily for Radiant, that isn’t the case and in fact works in it’s favor.
Cryptose, developed by Insurgent Games, is an interesting puzzle game where it is your job to decrypt messages either as a Hacker, a Detective or a Spy. The whole game is based around encryption and decryption and while playing the game is entertaining, it also allows you to learn a bit more about how it all works when it comes to encryption.
Our friends over at OrangePixel sent us a copy of their persistent scrolling platform game called DynamoKid Touch to review last week. As with all of our full reviews, we like to take our time playing the game giving it some good gameplay before coming up with our final verdicts. After playing this game for about a week I will say this: Addicting.
In the wide world of Space Invader style games that exists on the Android market, to differ from the rest of them you have to be able to offer up a unique experience, fun addictive game play and some good eye candy. A lot of the games in this genre fall short in one form or another. Revolution 2217, developed by ToJam Games is an attempt to change that.
I’ve kind of slacked off about keeping up with the Weekly Worst Game Review, not that their hasn’t been enough to review, just been busy writing about other games and getting our first contest organized. Developer Brainmelt GmbH, however, has pulled me out of this slacking off to talk about his awesome new game nicely titled Amateur Housewives.
I feel after giving Zenonia a bunch of playtime so far that I can do a good review of this huge game release by Gamevil. This game is massive (40+ hours not including if you want to get to lvl99) as well with a ridiculous amount of detail and polish. I picked up my copy the moment it hit the Android market and I’ve been playing it on and off as much as I can between working, it’s addictive.
Shadow Zone by NewGround is a turn based strategy game set in 1986 when Chernobyl’s 4th block has an accidental nuclear explosion and the area is sealed off. This game boasts 40+ hours of game play so it’s definitely not a short game you’ll be done with in a couple of hours. Now that I’ve gotten some real play time with this game, here is our review of it.
