App Spotlight:Angry Birds

Time to review the famous Angry Birds. Angry Birds as you may know is one of the most popular apps on the App Store. You use your birds which vary in size shape and function, and slingshot them at a fortress which also varies with size, shape and building material. As you progress you get harder and harder puzzles which look impossible but you still defeat them – god knows how? It may be because you eventually end up spending so much time on it! This fun addicting game is only £0.69!

Amazing Breaker

This colourful gaming is sure to take your mind of things for a while. A little like Angry Birds you pitch and catapult different types of ‘bombs’ to break and destroy glassy ice looking shapes. You must destroy 90% of the shape to pass to the next level. As you progress through the game you find harder and more complex shapes to tackle, you have to put the right bombs in the right place. It can be quite frustrating with you destroying 89% of the shape but makes you feel all the better when you pass it. The game feels great and if you’re not sure there in a lite version which is free, the full game costs all  £0.69. A bargain if you ask me.

App Spotlight: Skies of Glory

Skies of Glory Online Dogfight

Are you the Ace in the sky? This WW2 flying game is great and uses the accelerometer. First you pick a plane – German, American or British. Then pick the main weapon – rockets, bombs or heavy machine gun (you also have a light machine gun). On your own you can have set dogfights, which as you go through them vary by the number of enemies and the number of your wingmen. There is also a campaign which changes from you attacking ports to escorting bombers. There is an online multiplayer which you can either have a huge ‘dogfight’ (teams and free-for-all) or attack the base. This is a fantastic game, you will not stop playing on it.

App Spotlight: Rugby Kicks

Rugby Kicks 'Break The Wall' game mode

I’m not usually a sporting game fan but this game is topical due to The Rugby Word Cup finishing, only days ago. This game is like ‘Paper Toss’ and just as addictive but it’s free!. You are a rugby player with the posts in sight, you swipe the screen up and with a slight gradient to determine the direction, the speed at which you swipe determines the power of the ball. It starts off quite easy but looks to get harder as you earn more points. The points you earn can buy kit (not as important, just accessories) and other stadiums (international and club) with each of these has another game mode attached. First you start off with ‘beat The Clock’ where you have to get as many penalties as you can in 60 seconds. Once you have bought the ‘club stadium’ you get the ‘Hit The Target’ game mode which sort of explains its self. Once you have bought the ‘international stadium’ you get the ‘Break The Wall’ game mode, where there is a ‘wall’ in the posts and you repeatedly hit it to break it, again obvious. This game is great for a quick gaming fix, but I worry it might not do for a longer time but that’s, a matter of opinion.
