Note to nobody

I think I'm suffering from a bit of gaming burnout because I just have no mood lately to get into my games. It's happened a few times before, so it's just a fact of gaming life. Could be due to having too much fun with the ipod touch games. Could be due to the festive mood in the air. :)

Borderlands and Dragon Age are sitting on the shelf at the moment. I'll have to wait for this to pass and then I'll finish them.

Freebie December (iPhone / iPod Touch)


December is a month filled with free offers and massive discounts for the apps for iPhone / iPod Touch.

iTunes stores in Europe is currently having 12 Days of Christmas where music, video and apps are taking turns going free for a day. (That's 12 free items during the 12 days.) Although we are not Europe, some of the app developers extend their free offers internationally, so it pays to watch the appstore. (Appshopper.com is good for this.)

Freebies I've gotten this month include --
(note: links open in itunes)

7 Cities (Tower defence game)

33rd Division (Line drawing)

3000bc (action arcade)

Charadium
(Pictionary type online game)

iBlast Moki

Labyrinth 2 (iPhone/iPod Touch)



Labyrinth 2, the sequel to the popular game based off those old wooden tilt mazes, has been released and it is awesome. This time, there are new objects on the board -- magnets, bumpers, fans, lazers, etc. There's also two skins - the classical wooden board and the new metal board. The new elements make for a very interesting labyrinth gameplay. The game requires a steady hand and it's very satisfying to maneuver the ball through the hazards and make it to the goal.






Get Labyrinth 2 at the iTunes appstore for 4.99USD.

The game comes with about 200 official board in several level packs, multiplayer and download function for you to seach through some user-made level packs.

The game has an editor which you can access through the internet on your computer. You then have to upload those levels back into your device to play before you can publish them and share them with the world.

I have made two level packs so far. And I have a few more ideas on the way. My creator ID is A5L76TA9.


I highly recommend the levels by the following creators, their ID numbers:

- AEW62U78
- AZAANMA8
- AKVAQ8F9
- AHK2SQKB

iPhone / iPod Touch Games (November)

This is my favorites list this month.

Totemo



Totemo is a puzzle game that will have you eliminating light balls by linking two, three or four of them together in a line. The game has a great look, casual and enjoyable play and a rather relaxing way about it. Logic Puzzle fans will enjoy this one.



2. Flickitty



Flickitty is a casual free range platformer where you play a cat that has to finish a certain number of tasks. You sort of stretch him out and flick him around from platform to platform to perform the tasks. You can play this game without missions, Flickitty is a virtual toy of sorts. The cat is very cute. The graphics are colorful, well animated and the controls are good too.


3. Ravensword




Ravensword is a fantasy adventure with some rpg elements. Top notch 3D graphics, quite like Elder Scrolls games makes this game quite a piece of eye candy. It's a full packaged 20 hour game with main quest and side quests, plus a rather huge world to explore. The controls are kinda iffy, in my humble opinion.


4. Pathpix Pro




Pathpix Pro is the harder version of Pathpix. It's a puzzle game where you draw lines to link numbers. It's a logic puzzle game with sudoku type qualities but more interesting and more addictive.
