The Angry Birds are coming!

Wednesday, December 9th, 2009

Angry_Birds_logoRenowned games publisher, Clickgamer, has announced the distinctive new action-puzzle game, Angry Birds, for iPhone and iPod touch. Developed by the award-winning Rovio Mobile, Angry Birds puts players in control of a flock of avian assassins. These angry birds are desperate to reclaim their eggs from some pesky thieving pigs.

At the beginning of each Angry Birds game scenario, players receive a number of birds to use as projectile weapons. The birds are fired from a catapult to smash into the pigs and blast through their fiendishly created hideouts. The smooth graphics engine with high-quality cartoon visuals and audio create a novel, addictive game for all.

“We think that iPhone and iPod touch users have needed an outlet to vent their frustration for some time,” said Mikael Hed, CEO of Rovio. “Fortunately for them, these birds are not easily appeased. With Angry Birds you can look forward to hours of glorious bird mayhem!”

Coastal Defense – iPhone Review

Saturday, September 26th, 2009

navy-patrol-coastal-defence-icsSo patience and perststence does payoff.  This game proves it.

So I jumped in, chose to have the hints and tips on and started to play.  Within seconds I was so peed off that I nearly deleted the game that I spent my hard-earned money on.

I tried looking at the help in the game but while it told me what the different icons did, it didn’t tell me to drag and drop new defensive items – so all I got were guns dumped in the bottom of the sea, miles away from the attackers – Game Over!

The idea behind Coastal Defense is that you must protect your island base by placing defensive items in the waters to destroy enemy vessels before they can get close enough to fire a shot off.  Your protection varies in power and intensity, and also cost.  You start with $200 and gain cash whenever you sink an enemy boat – so the more you sink, the better defences you can get.

However the quantity and quality of the enemy ships also gathers pace.  It becomes a race to get the right defences in the right places, and an addictive race at that.

When you finally see that “You Lost” screen – or “You won” but I haven’t seen that yet! – there is smooth Facebook integration to let people know how you have fared against people around the world.

All in all a good, addictive game worth looking at if you can get past the learning curve frustration.
