I bought an iPega 9023. There’s plenty of fish in the sea when it comes to bluetooth gamepad attachments for mobile devices, but to my knowledge, this is the only one out there that is able to attach itself to an 8″ tablet or a tabled-sized (7″ or more) device in general. Since I haven’t been playing anything specific lately, I’d like to instead share my experience and possibly provide some tips on how to use this device. If it matters, the tablet I’m using it on is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 (SM-T315). Continue reading
A few months ago, I played through the campaign of the original Kingdom Rush on my tablet. It went by relatively quick, so instead of writing a single opinion post about it, I wanted to write a series of guides on how to get three stars on at least some of the levels. As apparent by the lack of such posts on this blog, that turned out to be a great idea.
Sarcasm aside, Kingdom Rush was a fun game, so I bought Kingdom Rush: Frontiers as well and played through it recently. I also got much further in the starts department, but I still don’t have a guide ready. What I do have is a bit of an overview of the game and I really want to write this down before I start with the third game in the series – Kingdom Rush: Origins. Continue reading
Final Fantasy is one of the few defining game franchises for me as a gamer. As a kid, I didn’t look far past the usual platformers, fighting or racing games, but at one point after getting the PlayStation, I got talked into buying Final Fantasy VII. Since then, I’ve played through most of the series and enjoyed each and every game I tried. This is a single post instead of a series, but I have now completed Final Fantasy XIII as well. Did I enjoy it? Sort of, maybe, but I’m not really sure. Continue reading
Cardinal Quest 2 was released on the Play Store a while ago. I played it on Kongregate for a bit and the screenshots made it seem interesting, so I decided to give it a go. I did not regret that decision. As it became standard on my blog, I’ll guide you through what the game is about in a series of screenshots. Continue reading
The purists might jump on the title like a pack of hyenas, so I’ll put a disclaimer right here and now – some might not consider Sproggiwood a roguelike. I do, but some might not. Most will consider it a fun game to play, though.I know I do, so I’ll do my usual “what is this game about” thing. I was going to do it earlier, before the game was released, but I couldn’t find the time, so let’s do it now that it’s out. Continue reading
I really, really do hate myself. Minutequest is basically a non-game. It’s Progress Quest with rudimentary graphics and a slightly higher degree of interactivity. It’s everything I should avoid after playing World of Warcraft for so long, and yet, on the day I installed it on my phone, I accumulated about 4 hours of activity. I say “accumulated” because you don’t really spend all that time playing the game. The game is running, but it doesn’t really need you to do much. Continue reading
If you read my postings, you’re probably thinking I have an issue with most mobile games and you’re right. I think most mobile games are horrible in the game department and even worse in let’s trick the humans into playing by using skinner box mechanics department. I’ve played World of Warcraft for a long time and it has made me observant of the typical mechanics that trick the player into thinking they’re having fun instead of actually being fun. The thing is, I see this and I hate this, but I still end up playing such a game for far too long. I’m pretty sure Summoners War is one such game. Still, as usual, I’ll give an overview of the game. Continue reading
Over the course of a couple of days, I’ve finally played through a complete match/game/campaign/whatever of Sid Meier’s Alien Crossfire, the expansion to Alpha Centauri. It’s truly an amazing game and I’ve held this opinion since the moment I first played it. It’s not perfect, though.
Over the past several weeks, I haven’t played a thing, except for an occasional fight in Angry Birds Epic. I haven’t been especially busy, albeit far busier than usual, but I did have other interests at the front and center, such as reading through A Clash of Kings. That being said, I managed to play through the main story of Angry Birds Epic and I think I can consider the game completed now, though I’m not really 100% sure. Continue reading
I decided to finally continue my Legend of Zelda Challenge. Since I now have an Archos Gamepad, I can play it on the go (for the most part). Of course, this meant I had to set up N64 emulation on the Gamepad and, more importantly, set it up to make Ocarina of Time work with minimal issues. Nintendo 64 emulation leaves something to be desired even on PC, so I had some work before me. Thankfully, I managed to find the proper emulator and tweak the settings to the point where the game runs pretty well, works with few issues and looks pretty good.
