Taking Over Old Kingdoms

So, I’ve been kinda obsessed with mobile games recently. This is a totally new development. Don’t you worry. (I’m totally lying. I love mobile games.) The most recently one that I’ve been playing at least a couple of times a day is called Polytopia. It is a strategy, turn-based game where your characters are people from older kingdoms, of course given random names because of … copyright(?). Each civilization has different starting points in the tech tree that you have. You start with four different civilization, but you can unlock more the better you get. There is even a pass and play mode so that you can decide who of your friend group is the best at strategizing. (It’s totally going to be you, right?) The graphics are the cute blocky design that I absolutely love and as a love of variations for a free game. And it’s available for iOS and Android.

I’m going to go and play more now.

You Shouldn’t Put Power in My Hands

Recently, I have discovered the mobile game “Balance.” Balance is a blocky puzzle and logic game. The goal is to give cities power. Sounds simple right. Well, it starts that way, then it makes you want to pull your hair out when if has puzzles off the course that make no sense to you. Trust me. I spent all night trying to figure out one of the puzzles, but once you start doing it, it makes sense. Sorta. Small wires can’t handle currents as well as bigger ones, but then the length of the wire also needs to be taken into consideration. It’s very trial and error. I’m still trying to completely finish this game (with all 3 stars), but I would definitely check this out if you can. It is available for Android and iOS.

Also, please recommend more puzzle games that are like Candy Crush. I’m always looking for more that I can waste playing. (Pretty Please)

Not a Room Escape

Very recently, I can across a game called The Room because of my weird love of room escape games, except this wasn’t a room escape game. But it was good. You stay in a room and unlock different items to uncover more and more secrets. The puzzles are at a reasonable difficulty if you are not binge-playing close to midnight and are running on fumes. I got the game here apart of Kindle’s Underground (p.s.: things are free here). I don’t know how to find it other than this because I keep getting the horrible movie. But if you want to find this game elsewhere, it was developed by Fireproof Games. But this game is awesome, and make sure the have your headphones in; the music is amazing!

Skiing for Llamas

I know it has been a long time, but life happens. I’m sure everyone understands that to some extent. For the last day though, I have been completely addicted to the game Alto’s Adventure. The premise of it is that you are on an adventure in a snowy landscape while collecting llamas. It sounds silly, but the game is completely addicting in your attempt to get better scores and unlock new characters. Not only is the game simple to play, but animation style is simply beautiful with its simplistic style. Definitely a must get, but you might what to keep you phone on a charger while playing it.

Get the game on Android, iOS and Kindle Fire.

 

Monopoly on Steriods

Anyone who knows me knows that one of my favorite board games is the infamous “Monopoly.” And how could it not be? It is a game filled with trying to screw everyone over. Yes, it can take hours, but that is part of the fun. Now imagine my surprise when I find out the there is the a version of the game on the Wii, and it has been super sized. In this new version of Monopoly known as “Fortune Street,” not only do you have to buy a bunch of properties, you are introduced to more than the classic square board. You are introduced to boards that move around and transport you all over the screen and buying properties in a district help the rent grow. Not only that, but you can now buy stocks. The “stock market” in this game can make or break you, by buying a lot of stocks while they are low and then making it crash by selling a bunch of your shares. This game just makes the wonderful game of Monopoly so much better and go where you may or may not have wanted it to.

Scary Things Come In Four

As many may or may not know, the fourth and final (for now, at least) installment of Five Nights at Freddy’s has been released. I have been obsessed with the game and have watched others play for kicks and giggles (as soon as I get over the jump scares of course) from the very beginning it seems like. This game, which ironically doesn’t last five “nights,” has had people theorising about it’s lore from the very beginning making the comments section of these videos the place to be. If you have not heard of this gaming series, go ahead and check it out. If this game is just not your thing, it’s just not your thing, but if you are looking for a horror game with secrets on every camera screen, this Chuck E Cheese inspired game may be for you.
