Alien Swing; Swinging into the appstore February 5th

Heres the trailer!

I’ve been playing with it a bit early and I can tell you it will satisfy all your swinging needs! a full review coming soon.

Soldier Of War (iHooy)- Why am I so addicted?

When you ask me to tell you what kind of game iHooy! is all I can do is sit there and say nothing because this game is so difficult to explain, that you have to play it to understand it.

Gameplay:
In iHooy the goal is to defend your fort from “bombiez” who are attacking. You defend your fort by smashing the bombiez which is done by pressing 2 buttons; one on the right, and the other on the left. The second and not nearly as important goal is to save people by opening the doors to the fort because if you don’t they run into a spiked wall. The game gets progressively more challenging and the challenge curve is to steep in my opinion so you’ll be stuck on the second country (Greenlandia) for some time

first stage in Bralasca

Graphics:
iHooy is beautifully hand drawn game with unique comic book style art. the game does have its fair share of graphical glitches though. The main and most annoying glitch is the bombiez flicker when the reach a certain part of the screen this really distracts you from extremely challenging gameplay and has messed me up a few times. iHooy also features an art gallery which you collect as you progress in the game

Sound:
the sound in iHooy is spot on! The music has the correct amount of epicness mixed with comedy to keep you coming back, in fact I came back to the game a few times just to hear the music. the sound effects on the other hand are good but I think they sound low quality compared to the music make some inconsistency in the sound.

Controls:
Controls are very responsive and work really well but I wished the levers were a little bigger when I played it for the first time, but after becoming a veteran it didn’t bother me at all.

Final judgment:
iHooy is a great game with some funny dialog [“one guy got so scared he shit bricks”], socially awkward story, great music, and nice art. The gameplay becomes repetitive and tedious after the first 2 countries but its the little details that make this game great that get me to keep coming back.

8/10
