After OWC Becky, OWC Kevin, and others in the office have practically begged me to review Candy Crush Saga, I have finally done so. However, brace for impact, this isn’t going to be pretty.
I’m going to start this review by saying I don’t like gambling, I don’t enjoy games of chance. If I’m going to pour hours of time into a game (the game currently has 305 levels) I expect some reasonable level of confidence in knowing that I have a chance to beat the level I’m on when I start. This is where my problem lies in C.C.S., if the random algorithms, decide to not give me what I need, I lose. You can be the best puzzle game player on earth, or Other Worlds, and will fail.

Get your trading card game fix in this award-winning cross-platform wonder, for Mac OS X, iOS, Android, and PC from Wulven Studios!
When it comes to visually stunning titles Shadow Era is up there in the charts, with bold graphic styles, and a wonderful interface, making this trading card game, (which typically translates poorly to handheld devices) an absolute joy to play.
When first starting the game, you must choose a hero to represent you and your deck. Hero’s are broken down into 2 factions, Human and Shadow, and each Hero also has a class. This decides what kind of cards you can place into your deck. For example, if selecting a Human Mage Hero, I can use Human cards and Mage cards but not Rogue or Shadow.
Gather your swords and axes friends, in this App review we are taking a look at Parallel Kingdom for iOS!
This app is a wonderful take on the MMORPG Genre, combining exploration, community, and… your real-world physical location. Parallel Kingdom uses your Current GPS location, in combination with Google Map Data, to create your surroundings. I’ve been playing this game for 6 months and have recently claimed the land our OWC Headquarters sits on in Woodstock, Illinois.
What this game lacks in plot, it makes up for with its raw exploration and gameplay. After clearing out the area of monsters and collecting some gold and “Pages” (which you need to max out to level up). I decided to wander around and see what else the land around our building had to offer. Article Continues…
While the iOS App reviews aren’t as frequent as they used to be, we haven’t forgotten them. We’re still looking at apps for our iPod Touches, iPhones and iPads to try and find those hidden gems that make using our iDevices a little more enjoyable. This time around, we’re going to check out the game “Time Geeks: Find All!” by Ivanovich.
App Store Description
Time Geeks: Find All! has been hailed by critics as one of the essential games for iOS for its great beauty, easy handling and fun. And defined by players as the best game of searches carrying seek & find games to a new dimension. Article Continues…
It’s been quite a while since we’ve had an iOS app review for you, but with all the exciting goings-on here at OWC, it’s been kind of tough to get the crew together so we could all contribute. At the same time, we all had fun doing this, and wanted it to continue.
As a result, we’re going to try and resurrect this feature, just with a slightly different format: only one of us is going to review an app at any given time, and the apps themselves won’t necessarily have to be free (though, ultimately, that’s still our goal). Of course, we’ll be counting on you, valued readers, to chime in on these apps, too. After all, more feedback eventually leads to better apps overall. :-D
So… without further ado, let’s take a look at Friendly for Facebook by Oecoway Inc.
