Mobile: Don’t Starve!

Hey there, Internet!

Don’t Starve (pocket edition) was developed by Klei entertainment in 2013, this review is for the iPhone (iOS) version but you can also find editions for Playstation, Windows and Linux! Prices vary a bit depending on where you buy it and the platform you chose.

Just look at this cute robot! WX-78 so far is my favourite character in this game!

My thoughts: This is a game that probably never will get boring, you have no tutorial to start with, the only hints the developers will give you is a Tim-Burton-like cartoon in the beginning that shows how Wilson got into that dangerous wilderness that the game is located in! You will be able to change the world a bit (by adding more or less sources, enemies, changing how long the day / night / season will be or if you want more or less challenging weathers) but the map itself will be generated randomly. Don’t Starve actually is what you want to do, eat, keep up your health and sanity, build a base, make friends with different creatures so they will fight for you – a long-time-entertaining survival game. As time goes by you collect more resources, learn how to create different things and by surviving you collect points and unlock different characters that all have slightly different stats and abilities / fears to influence the game! Probably the best purchase I’ve ever made on my mobile (btw, bought it on my iPhone 4S to afterwards find I could not play it on said mobile and had to wait 3 months until I got my new iPhone 6… I better read the requirements next time…)

And if you really need help, try the Don’t Starve Wiki!

Do you have some mobile app that keeps you entertained for hours? Have a nice evening!

Mobile: Lonely Crow!

Hey there, Internet!

This might be one of the last games / apps I ever will play on my broken screen (because the broken area is not needed and I will be able to get a new mobile in January as well). Sadly though, Lonely Crow seems to currently only be available for iPhone, iPod & iPad. So for Apple users it is freeware and is able to connect to your Game center account as well. The game was released by Tapp Inc. and features simple but cute graphics by Yasir Bugra Eryilmaz.

Lonely Crow – official description: Lonely Crow is a simple but enjoyable action game that is based on fighting off the birds who are trying to damage wires by slapping them.

In this game you are the lonely crow that tries to stop other birds from pecking and damaging the wires you sit on. When you’re not fast enough and the birds start pecking on one of the 9 spots of the wires you get three stages of warning (white, black and red) and in the end if they destroy it completely all of the birds will get shocked and fall down. You can move the crow swiping with your finger on the screen and swipe again to push the birds off the wires, get more points the faster you do this. The game of course will get faster while playing and while the description might at first sound a bit boring it is perfectly entertaining and the expressions by the crow and the birds are priceless.

Have you tried this game or have other apps you would recommend? Are there any alternatives for android? Have a nice evening!

Mobile: Bronko Blue, Halloween Special!

Hey there, Internet!

This month’s mobile app / game is something that is available as non Halloween-version (with slight differences in graphic and task) as well. Bronko Blue, the kitten copter by bytecombo UG. You can download it for your iPhone and iPad for free (the regular Version is 0.99$ via itunes store). On the official website you can also play the non-halloween flash player version) or download the lite versions on amazon, for google play and black berry.

Bronko Blue, Halloween Special – official description: Do you like innovative Action Indie Games? Try Bronko Blue, the kitten copter – Halloween special, our free atmospheric side scroller. (100% indie game, Simple touch controll, Atmospheric side scroller, Challenging journey through a world of halloween, Physics based world with charming graphics, 8 levels for free, Completely ad-free, shooting, flying blue cat in a zorro costume) The halloween special of Bronko Blue, the kitten copter is an atmospheric side scroller. Bronko is a small blue cat who flies through a world of halloween searching for some sweets to collect. He must avoid or interact with obstacles along the way. He can shoot or ram pumpkin towers or fight against windmills. Crows approach him which he can shoot but not collide with. The desired sweets can be found along the way to receive bonus points.

Well, as the official description says you are Branko Blue, a kitten that has to fly through 8 levels to find its lost candy (the original version is about finding your balls of wool). You have one button to fly higher and another one to shoot the obstacles like crows, pumpkin towers or churches – if you can’t shoot them, try to avoid them as they will kill you or slow you down too much and will also make you lose as well. The designers also added nice autumn leaves and clouds with thunderbolts to the scenery. You can finish the Halloween levels within a few minutes, the achievements might take some extra time but when you are in need of a few minutes entertainment I can highly recommend this app to you and maybe you will like it enough to try the full version as well!

Have you played Bronko yet? What other games / apps can you recommend? Have a nice evening!

Mobile! Nosferatu! (1 & 2)

Hey there, Internet!

Here is another round of ‘What’s on our mobiles’? This month I have a game for you that already has a second version available as well – Nosferatu, Run from the Sun! An endless-runner game by Smuttlewerk interactive, available for iPhone (as well as iPod/iPad) and Android. Both versions are connected to the Game Center and you are also able to invite your Facebook friends to get some rewards and to compare your scores!

mobile app nosferatu run from the sunmobile app nosferatu run from the sun 2 game startmobile app nosferatu 2 run from the sun pizza level

Nosferatu, Run from the Sun! – official desciption: You are the cutest, fastest and nicest vampire of all time. Can you escape the sun long enough to achieve the fattest HIGHSCORE on the planet? Whatever you do, be careful where you jump to, little Nosferatu!

And yes, that might not explain why this game is so addicting but you will find out as soon as you try. The basic version is for free (of course there are ingame purchases like power-ups and characters available but none are required.) First you will have to decide if you want to play single or multiplayer, which of course will offer rewards if you do well! You are Nos, the vampire and you ‘try to make friends’, you can do this while running into your victims. The character simply runs from left to right through 4 different neighborhoods, to jump from one platform to the next you touch the screen (if you miss, the sun will rise and poor Nos will burn), after a while you switch from running to flight mode, try to avoid the UFOs and collect as many coins as possible, with those you will be able to purchase a lot of upgrades and different characters. Next to the Multiplayer levels there also are different missions for you to solve which makes this game entertaining for a long time!

Nosferatu, Run from the Sun 2! – official desciption: The popular endless runner with over 5 million downloads featuring Nosferatu, the friendly vampire, is moving on to the next round. 

Admitting I thought this game would not be able to get better in a second version and when I tried it for the first time I did not like it at all, but I think they changed a bit in it when I didn’t look (pretty sure it was called Twilight Runner in the beginning? I might be wrong here, though.) because when I tried it again I loved it! Once more you start your journey as vampire Nos with other characters (Lycor, Red Rachel, Mary Medusa) available to purchase. This time though you will have companions, pets and mounts that you will also be able to unlock and upgrade – which I think is a great addition, at least I enjoy riding my black Pegasus and having my faerie with me! The actual gameplay is similar to the first version but without victims, instead you have to avoid or jump on enemies such as flying skunks. There are no aliens in flight mode and only two sceneries for the running levels – but those are much more detailed so you will enjoy a beautiful forest scenery as well as a Pizza one! The distance you run will also be shown on a cute map with places where you can find rewards as well! And of course there are events like this weekend where after the first flight level you would have to fight against crazy dr.doctor as often as you can! So after playing it for a while I really prefer this version and so I will of course have to try if I can manage to ‘finish’ and while doing so I hope a lot of my friends will join me!

You can find and add me to Nosferatu 2 as Schnauzevoll or with my code: PWCPW

If you like this kind of posts you might want to take a look at the previous posts: Dead Runner! and Zombies, run!

Do you use one of these Apps? Any other you can recommend? Have a nice evening!
