Congratulations to UK based Fireproof Studios. Apple named their puzzle game The Room, The IPad Game of the Year. The Room game takes place in a dark room where you follow a trail of clues leading towards a new energy source. You must decipher these clues to hack into a ornate cabinet which contains a even more elaborate wooden container. You must slide hatches, solve mechanical and visual puzzles, using the swipe and touch functionality of the IPad.
The Room definitely offers an unique and puzzling game experience the first time you play it. It took us a three days to solve the game the first time played during our holiday travels. The second time took one day. The third took two hours and we solved the room in 65 minutes on the fourth go round. There is only one way to solve each puzzle so once you figure it out and can store the solution in your brain’s memory slot the challenge dissipates. It would be great if they added a timer function to create a sense of urgency and to compare my score to other players. Mind you this comes from someone who still has yet to solve the Rubik’s Cube without taking it apart.
The Room costs $1.99 and consumers can play it on the IPhone and IPad using iOS 5.0 or later.
Here’s Space Keeper, a unique new action arcade Android game from CodaWeb Interactive UG.
The game takes place in the year 2312 where all natural resources have dried up. You have to find and collect elements in outer space to create new sources of energy. The game mechanic employs lots of physics.
Obstacles include explosive particles, asteroids and aliens. You will need logic, speed and dexterity to succeed.
It looks like someone has a case of the Mondays. Ever dread going into work? Do the management dolts frustrate you? Maybe the head of your division who is so incompetent that he can’t open a link emailed to him, sleeps with two of his female married direct reports and gets promoted. If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then maybe a game called Zombies will help you blow off steam as you smash a few heads.
An indie game developer named Nic Gorrisen created Zombies, a self described “violent, sarcastic, 2D isometric rampage game” which takes place in a cube filled office environment where the IT Help Desk guy, our hero, must fend off the masses of drooling middle managers who happen to be zombies.
Gorrisen employs retro pixel visuals as you slash your way up the corporate ladder. The game includes some fun humor and an even better soundtrack and can be played on the PC($4.00), the IPhone ($0.99) and the IPad.
