A good old friend of Breaking The Game, Ellery Connel, has begun development of his new iOS game. We have started our support with sponsorship of the project. We ask for your help to join in.
“Harbinger: Skeleton Crew is a first person sci-fi adventure game for
the iOS (iPhone, iPod, iPad). Through a combination of open exploration and simple puzzles, the story of the derelict starship Armada unfolds.”
As you know, unless your living under a rock, Peggle was a huge hit on Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network. I could only find one problem with Peggle, you couldn’t play it on the go. No worries though, Peggle is now on the iPhone so you can enjoy this great masterpiece wherever you go!
The game is great fun at a great price. The controls transferred beautifully to the iPhone. I actually think the iPhone version has better controls at times!
Over all the game is great and is far worth the great price. If you have an iPhone I highly recommend it.
When I heard Doom was coming to the iPhone I was very apprehensive. Control schemes for iPhone games have really been hit or miss. Sure games like Bejeweled using touch controls or racing games that use tilt controls make sense. However, the virtual d-pad and analog sticks haven’t worked well for me.
After two times through Doom Resurrection, I will say that I am quite pleased. There are a few issues that bother me, but for the most part the game is quite good. Read the rest of this entry »
StoneLoops of Jurassica is one of those games that will be overlooked by most people, but once you play it, you will be hooked. The game plays almost identical to Zuma. You are given different colored stones and you have to match up 3 or more of the same color stone to remove them from the looping paths. At the end of each path is a dragon head. Let the stones reach the dragon’s head and it is game over. Simple enough right? With looping paths and increasingly challenging levels, the game will definitely challenge even the most jaded gamer. There are 9 different types of power-ups aiding you in your quest to destroy stones, through 2 different game modes. The first is the “Normal” mode, you are given the ball and you try to match up 3 or more stones. The second is “Grab N’ Shoot” mode, in this one you remove a ball from the line of stones to match 3 or more and remove as many as possible. Both are very fun and bring their own challenges.
The graphics and sound are very well done. There are 75 different levels, each with their own unique style, ranging from a tropical forest feel all the way to a lava filled volcano. Each level really is impressive for this type of game. Like most iPhone games, a set of headphones is the best way to hear the music and sound effects. For some reason the internal iPhone speaker just doesn’t cut it for most games.
After spending quite some time with the game, I will say this fits in nicely with my growing collection of favorites. I was a huge Zuma fan and this is a very good progression for this type of game play. With solid graphics, remarkable sound, and enough variety to keep it from getting boring this game is a STEAL at $.99. This one really should be in your iPhone game collection. I give this one 5 out of 5.
