RoomBoom Suburbia is another in a long line of Sim City wannabes. Granted, RoomBoom mixes in a bit of a Tetris element, but even that has been done before. Mindemia tried to create a game to capture the attention of strategy simulation fans, but ultimately, came up with a sub par mash up.

GAMEPLAY

There are two parts to the game. The first is where you create rooms from pieces in a confusing, frustrating, conveyor belt full of wooden shapes. Thankfully, there is an option to merely simulate this part, and players can focus on the second part of the game. In this portion, players select rooms, and arrange them on a map, attempting to connect all the necessary pieces for a full house. This is done by matching red doors to red doors, and blue doors to blue. The rooms that are available at any given time change, so players need to be on the look-out, and are better served to attempt building more than one house at a time. Successful houses lead to money. A large enough sum leads to control of the land. After a predetermined number of turns, scores are tallied, and a winner is declared. After a small learning period, control of the pieces becomes pretty easy. Unfortunately, after this learning period, the game play gets pretty boring.

I’ll freely admit that, as I write this review, I’m craving chocolate. Watching tiny animals munching down on vast bars of the stuff is just too mouth watering to resist.

Summary: Tired of run of the mill video games that offer nothing new to the players? Try this one for innovation… if you like it, you will definitely love it.

Game Play: The basic gameplay involves guiding a gold car along the tracks by constantly switching rails (with the help of the mouse button or spacebar). However the game offers different game scenarios, all of which are timed.

– Collect Coins: you have to collect as many coins as possible.
– Goldrush: you have to collect all the coins on the screen.
– Dynamite: you have to pass the dynamite stick before it blows up.
– Collect Diamonds: and deposit them into the tunnel.

You have to complete the individual sessions between one and two minutes. And the counter starts ticking with ten seconds left – which adds to the tension. As usual, as you progress in the game, you unlock further items and the gameplay becomes more and more difficult.

Graphics: Remember those (bygone) days of adolescence when you had laid out a railway track in some inaccessible part of the house? And frantically switched tracks to keep the engine running? This is a 3-D version; and though the topography is sometimes confusing, the important thing to remember is that the dark (brown) tracks lead downhill. What the computer makes possible is that you can keep going downhill and still come back to your starting point!

Creativity & Innovation: Full marks for innovation. The best part of the game is its simplicity in concept and design. This is a game for all ages – you can play it, your kid can play it, and (perhaps) your mom can be induced to play it as well! Good news if you are new to the world of computer games: you do not have to be a genius or an addict to enjoy this game.

Conclusion: This is an interesting (game) concept, and it has been well developed. If it catches on, it could even become something of a trend-setter. If there is a criticism, it is only that one’s skill level keeps varying between “Apprentice” and “Master”. Normally, as one gains in experience, one would expect that to be reflected in the rating. Fun to play? Yes, and the game sessions last no longer than two minutes. So, if you tire of playing, you can switch off the monitor, and resume when you are in the mood. In sum, it’s a decent game to add to one’s collection.

The game Bionic Heart by Winter Wolves is altogether an interesting and worthwhile game to buy. The game is about life on Earth in a futuristic time, where global warming has caused an unusual consequence. Due to the Earth’s “polarization,” it has mysteriously caused rainfall on almost every part of the Earth to occur frequently.

You start off the game as Luke Black, a talented nano-tech engineer that is struggling with his girlfriend, who he does not wish to marry. He doesn’t wish to marry her, and says that “1 out of 10 couples get married. Doesn’t that tell you [his girlfriend] something?”

You are left with a choice in the conversation after she responds, and you can either choose to ask for more time in your relationship with her or try living together.

This is one example of the game’s interactive features, which is probably the strongest aspect of the game. In a way you get to form your own character, and choose what he does.

Given it is a PC game, the graphics are of fairly high quality and allow you to step into your character’s shoes. When Helen comes inside your house for example, you get a few moments to fully absorb the detailed graphics of her face and body. She is a prototype on the run, and stays at Luke’s house for a period of time.

Apart from its interactive features and detailed graphics, the plot itself is what really enraptures the player. As soon as Helen decides to stay, you quickly become involved in trying to find out more about her and where she’s from.

There are, however, downsides to the game. As interactive as it is, you cannot independently move as you can in other games such as Halo PC or Need for Speed Most Wanted. You must click what you wish to do, such as walking into your bathroom requires menu clicks, not independent movement.

Also, dialogue between characters (and even when you’re talking to yourself) appears on a menu without actual lip movement. This can be slightly distracting and definitely takes away from the game’s overall appeal.

Finally, the options for what to do become limited after a while. If you happen to get stumped or click on the same option more than once, there is hardly a time that the dialogue is modified. Occasionally when you walk around and ask someone the same thing multiple times, they might say something different, but the characters frequently repeat the same line. In conclusion, I’d rate it a 3/5.

At its heart, Momo’s Quest is a well made 2d platform romp aimed firmly at the pre-school generation. Momo is a squirrel whose owner has been taken away, and Momo is on the trail to find her. Collecting dropped beads along the way, Momo travels through the various levels, finding friends to help along the way.

Game play is incredibly simple, as Momo follows your mouse pointer (transformed into an acorn) left and right, the further away meaning faster travel. A left click makes Momo jump, and that’s it. Easy for anyone to pick up and play, without overcomplicated actions needed or wanted, and a generous collision detection means no tricky pixel perfect jumps are needed.
