Trust not the Machines. Today, your toaster placidly browns your bread; tomorrow, it'll attempt to toast your skull. I, for one, don't welcome our inevitable machine overlords. Techpocalypse is a co-op strategy-survival game that will educate you on the best ways to dispatch the Machines--but the project needs funding to get off the ground. That's where Kickstarter comes in.

Hot on the heels of their much-publicized emancipation from the Facebook platform, and self-proclaimed conversion to the church of mobile, social gaming mainstay CrowdStar is ready to take their show on the road, expanding a couple of their most popular franchises into the (ironically named) Wild West of mobile gaming: Southeast Asia. How will they make it out there? With the a little help from their friends, of course.

Temple Run Review – Crazy Indiana Jones-esque Runner is a post from: My iPad Games
We’ve all seen runner games in touch devices — some of them are pretty bad that they get deleted from my iPad at the same day. However, it comes as a pleasant surprise that Temple Run had gotten my (and my girlfriend’s) attention for almost two weeks now. I feel like a winner in my new find — Temple Run (free via iTunes)  is extremely addicting.

Each game in Temple run starts at the same scenario. You touch an idol and a number of monkey-like creatures chase your cha

racter while you navigate through the maze of brick, stones and wooden pathways. Unlike any other runner games, though, this one is 3D, in a third person view. The way is not straight either. Corners are a common thing you see in the game and you would have to turn avoid running into the muddy river below. The way is littered with hazards too — trees, traps and pitfalls are there to end your run.
While other automatic running games offer only one button (jump), Temple Run ups the difficulty level by giving you quite a few control schemes — swipe right to turn right, swipe left to turn left, swipe up to jump and swipe down to slide. Additionally you should tilt the device left or right to guide the explorer to the coins that are scattered on the way.
The coins are for unlocking more in game features, like extra characters (for vanity effects only, all characters have the same ability — the run) wallpapers and in-game power-ups. The power-ups include a magnet that attracts coins so you won’t have to the iPad, a invisibility power-up that lets you by pass obstacles and a run boost. All of there can be further be upgraded by the coins.
While it all sound a bit complicated, Temple Run is quite easy to learn to play. Given a few initial runs, I was able to run around a thousand meters. The magic of Temple Run though, is that while you see always the same background, no two games are exactly the same as each play is randomly generated.
No other endless runner had me addicted since Gravity Guy. Temple Run is already making big waves in the app store and this might become the next Angry Birds. I don’t know, But I am itching for one more round of Temple Run. Maybe ten. 5/5 (Plus a sore finger.)

The Top Ten iPad Games for 2011 is a post from: My iPad Games
2011 has been a great year. This website was introduced to the internet in May and continued to rise in popularity until the end of the year. I also got to download a few games that were really really good, some of them got to get a chance to be reviewed here in My iPad Games, some did not get a slot in my busy busy schedule.
Here are the top ten games that were released in 2011 which I think are worthy of your attention if you have not downloaded them yet.
 
10. Zombie Cafe

on how it feels like to own a restaurant and command a horde of zombies at the same time, the Zombie Cafe might be just the right game for you. It features odious recipes to feed your unsuspecting patrons, and zombie employees to boot. Fun!

9.  Defen-G Astro

While the iOS is literally swimming with tower defense games, some of them are down right crappy. Defen-G Astro is a breath of fresh air because it incorporates tower defense with muliti-linear defense. The game is really easy at first but gets extremely frantic towards the end.

8. The Bard’s Tale

The Bard’s Tale is a port of the PC game of the game title. It is an action RPG which ironically makes fun of a lot of RPG elements in classic games. The game is filled with lots of funny cutscenes, action-packed quests and music videos. The game arguably has the best voice acting in all RPG’s in the iOS and combine that with the witty, funny dialogue makes the game feel like a fusion of a funny adventure comic book and video game.

7. Where’s My Water?

2011 was a great year for physics puzzlers and Where’s My Water? represents that. Here, you have to bring clean water to Swampy, an adorable alligator so he can shower. The game engages the player really well without being too easy or too hard.

6. Mage Gauntlet

Another action RPG in the list. Mage Gauntlet lets you control a hardy battle mage, Lexi, in search for a cure for her inability to cast magic without the aid of a mage gauntlet.
Retro games with pixellated visuals and chip-tune music are a fashion now on the iOS but only a few live up to expectations like Mage Gauntlet. The game is a frantic action at its best where you are forced to save up your limited supply of magic and rely on your trusty sword to obliterate the foes. The game is also humorous like The Bard’s Tale and you are guaranteed a laugh everytime Lexi opens her smart-ass mouth.

5. Muffin Knight

When casual arcade games become very frantic like this game, it becomes very special. I am torn between this game and its platforming brethren, League of Evil, but this one has a unicorn that poops rainbow-colored mines, so this one wins by a point.

4. World of Goo

This game was an adorable indie PC game with tons and tons of awards and praises from different gaming sites. Was. The game found it’s perfect platform for the iPad.
The premise of world of goo is to take these little balls of goop to a pipe some where in the screen by turning some of them into walls and towers. The game does not end there, though, later levels reveal other goo balls with different properties, so it opens up more creativity. Fuse that with the different weather terrains, gorgeous visual presentation and even more gorgeous soundtrack, World of Goo is one game that should be in your springboard, in case you missed it.

3. Shadow Era

Shadow era is a virtual trading card game, comparable to Magic: The Gathering (in terms of gameplay and artwork) where you can play with the computer AI or with a human via an internet connection. The game is multi-port meaning chances are, you are playing with a PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad or Android user.
This game is freemium at its best — still playable if you want some good fun but purchases are needed if you really love the game and wanted to be competitive. This is the only freemium game that convinced me to cough out some dollars for the freemium services.

2. Box Cat

I just love casual games that is very easy to earn and play, but almost impossible to put down. Box Cat, an independent game is sort of an opposite of Frogger where instead of avoiding the vehicles you have to crash your character (a cat) into them. Don’t fret, though, because the cat is super invincible and is only affected by large truck when not dashing.

1. Tiny Heroes

And the #1 game that had me addicted is…. Tiny Heroes! The game is so beautifully executed, I am still playing it even though I have three starred all levels.
Basically, Tiny Heroes is a tower defense strategy game that focuses on replacing broken towers and mixing multi use and single use defenses. You play the role of the dungeon keeper here, where you would have to protect the dungeon’s treasure from greedy heroes.

Spacetime Studios have launched yet another cross-platform MMORPG. I say that not like it’s becoming boring, but that it’s impressive how standard this is becoming for the studio with Dark Legends. Where some developers have trouble transferring save data between platforms, Spacetime has built another game that launched on Google Chrome, Android, and iOS within short time of each other, and it all works perfectly.
Dark Legends follows a similar core gameplay style as Pocket Legends and Star Legends: players traverse dungeons either by themselves or with friends, fighting all s

orts of supernatural creatures and dark figures. Players control vampires who don’t see the need to cover everything up while they’re fighting. The newest aspect of combat is the ability to charge up attacks and magic for more damage. Magic drains from the same bar as health, which requires blood packs in order to refill. Well, actually, any kind of blood will do, which is why there’s the ability to drain blood from an enemy, which also grants a temporary stat boost.
Dark Legends‘ one negative addition to the game is the energy mechanic, one that essentially incentivizes the player to stop playing the game in order to progress. Each action undertaken requires a certain amount of energy, with some being ‘missions’ that have a quick animation, and then a timer to wait for them to finish. The levels themselves take 3 energy per play.
The problem in particular seems to be the way that it’s shifted multiplayer from an experience where the game can be enjoyed in long sequences with random players, to one that really only reinforces existing relationships, and encourages the joining of a guild. It was fun to go on extended dungeon raids in Star Legends, sticking with the same group for a long period of time. Because progression now is blocked by waiting for missions to complete, this means that random multiplayer is short-term at best. Some missions take an hour to complete, and while platinum can be used to bypass them, they’re still just a hindrance, one whose best solution is to just sit and wait for an arbitrary reason for them to complete. It creates more of a short-term and solo experience, for better or worse.
However, after all of that, Dark Legends is at its heart still a fun game, and rather impressive considering that it’s still free to play. It works out of the box with seamless cross-platform multiplayer. The only problem is that because it shares the core technology with its predecessors, the only differences are the setup and inclusion of vampires. While long-term play will be best enjoyed with the purchase of platinum (vanity items get expensive and some rare items can be obtained by buying some items packs with platinum), it’s definitely still worth taking the free dive in.

Plants War Review: in Every War There Will Always be a Hero is a post from: My iPad Games
Plants War (Free via iTunes) game is closely related to War Craft and DOTA, so if you love playing those games you will also appreciate this fun game from Gamevil.com.  In a way it is similar to the games mentioned a while ago but this is the single-player version. You can test your strategy in leading your troop in defeating some beastly animals in the Dryad Forest.

ns and most of all enjoy the game.
 
Plants Wars: the Game and How it Works
Before starting your journey you will be asked to choose your champion. Your hero can be upgraded as you play the game or you can purchase it in the App Store but the first hero will be for free. After selecting your upgradable characters, then you are free to build an army to lead on your battle.
You have to unlock some units in order to proceed and what would you expect, like in any other games you still have to make another purchase in order for you to reach your quotas of gold and green leaves fortune.  The more plants and slots you have the greater chances you have in getting these gold and green leaves. But mind you it is not an easy one to collect the numbers of leaves you need for your upgrades.

Now that you have your troop to lead, with or without those additional purchases you can lead them to destroy your enemy’s base. (You have to make it quick or else they will blow up your base instead)
Leafy (our main character, the hero of the war) has four skills. In order to use each skill you have to collect certain points to have those skills be activated.  As your level advances you will have the chance in putting more points into Leafy’s special skills.
The game is not as complicated as the others but it is really fun. You need good strategic plans in order to reach victory. Create combinations of plants in blowing up you enemy’s base. It is easy to learn this game. Kids and parents can enjoy playing this game together.
This game is really fun to play but I think it can be better if it can be a multiplayer. It will add up more fun and excitement when this can be played with friends.
 
GREENS:

Controls are simple and easy to learn
Zoom and zoom out options
Visual presentation is great
Cute game
Upgradable Heroes with great skills

REDS:

Targeting the enemies is a bit difficult
You get the game for free but there is a catch
No game center (maybe it will be nicer if there will be a game center for this game)

 
Game Cost: free
Top In- Cost: $ 0.99 – $ 49.99 (ranges from 40 leaves to 3000 leaves)

Did you know that penguins spend up to 75% of their time underwater, looking for food in the ocean? Or, if Chillingo’s recent Greedy Penguins [99¢/Lite] is to be believed, they spend 85% of their time on ice floes, waiting for you to feed them, 10% of their time playing guitar and burping, and 5% of their time getting eaten by ravenous Orcas.
Greedy Penguins is a bird-centric physics puzzler (what a concept!) that revolves around you finding ways to get incredibly stressed-out fish in the mouths of the correspondingly-colored penguins. You tap the fish to drop it from its hook and get it

rolling, then through a combination of timing and obstacle-clearing, get it to the right-colored penguin. Once your penguin is successfully fed, he coughs up ice cream, which you tap to feed each level’s companion and get bonus points when completing the level, garnering a one, two, or three-fish rating.

The concept isn’t new, but the execution feels good. I found myself really enjoying this game, as much for the cute graphics and theme as for the well-designed puzzles. While the earlier puzzles seem easy (don’t they always?), once I really got going it became quite challenging to make sure I got the fish moving in order to clear obstacles. I found myself failing some levels multiple times. Since each level is short, I didn’t mind too much, but it did remind me of how bad my timing is (I still get night terrors regarding the Cave of Wonders level from Aladdin for the Sega Genesis).
Another challenge, though one not personally experienced, is that the colors chosen for each penguin and their food make the game exceptionally trying for color blind people. As mentioned in the forum thread, those who can’t see colors will have a heck of a time getting through this game. If you’re persistent and don’t mind some trial-and-error, you might still enjoy it, but as a person who had enough trouble being able to clearly see everything, I would probably recommend skipping it until a color blind option is added.
The other thing that I personally didn’t like was the in-app purchase option. I’m generally of the conservative “in-app purchase?! Not in my paid app!” mindset (I am a bit of an old person, after all), and my thoughts on Greedy Penguins are no different. Simply beating every level in a world isn’t enough to unlock the next set of levels. In order to unlock the second and third igloos (worlds of 12 puzzles each), you need to have either collected thirty fish (out of only thirty-six) or pay 99¢.

The game also encourages you to waste time in levels by tapping the penguins and their companions to make them do “funny animations,” making it unlikely that you’ll get a perfect score of three fish on your first try. Crafty, no? I don’t know about you, but I don’t really like replaying levels of games just to gain points (or fish) in order to unlock content that I feel entitled to, having already purchased the app.
All things considered, Greedy Penguins is a well-crafted – though hardly groundbreaking – puzzle game. It's fun and extremely well-executed, with enough challenging puzzles to keep you occupied. If you've got a dollar or two burning a hole in your pocket, I'd definitely recommend giving it a spin, especially since it's Universal. If not, well, you can always get your penguin fix from this video!
