Cheezia: Gears of Fur is an engaging and fun platform game with some very cool physics elements thrown in. Your job is to help Manu, a mouse housed within a wall-climbing cogwheel of some kind, save some important recipes from the grip of an Evil Kiwinel bird. So, this adventure is all about food, then: cheese, mainly.
If you like dairy, and also like your games Mario-esque and dripping in cheese, this is the game you’ve been waiting for. Grab a cracker or some nachos and read on for more…
Most of us struggle with keeping our busy lives organized, especially if you throw a family into the mix. That is why there are so many apps in the Play Store that deal with personal organization – but it’s hard to weed through them all to find true help. When all the dust has settled, Cozi is one Android app that’s left as a real winner.
Organization requires three separate tools: a calendar, a to-do list, and a shopping list. They are all needed in our every day life and it’d be nice if they all worked together in tandem, and worked for the whole team (or family). Cozi is all of these tools in one convenient app, and they’ve included a journal to boot…
There’s a diverse range of puzzle games on Android, and Train Crisis is my latest favourite. U-Play has developed another snazzy looking game that will have you gripping your phone intensely! It’s a particularly good strategy game that requires quick thinking, quick reflexes and the ability to hold your temper – it can get quite difficult. So put down Angry Birds and hop on board…
In Grow you control a fish with a simple mission: consume every creature that is smaller than you. The controls are also simple and easy to use, offering a few different ways to play – via tilt, virtual joystick, or touch-and-move (for both right- and left-handed players). Grow requires Android version 2.1 or above, and is suitable for all ages.
Once upon a time music sharing wasn’t even possible. Can you believe it? If you wanted to listen to an album a friend recommended you, you had to go to the music store and buy a vinyl disc . Of course, you could’ve went to his place and listen to it there, but if you wanted to listen to it yourself you had to buy it. Later, magnetic cassettes made everything easier. They were also quite fun, jamming and all that. And who doesn’t remember the good old pen rewind method?
Nowadays if you hear a track on your friends media player (smartphone or not) you can give a quick YouTube search for the band for more of its tracks and if you really like them, hop into iTunes, Amazon or any other online music store and download it. But this is not about that. This is about how we share what we listen to to our friends. Sure you can send a YouTube link via e-mail, IM, or posting it on your Facebook Timeline or Twitter Feed, but that would be time consuming. What if there where a site where every track you listen to gets saved for all the people to see? Well, there is.
Read It Later is one our favourite content-saving tools, and this week it received a complete overhaul bringing a new name, UI, feature set and price tag (it’s now free!) to the table. But has its rebirth set it ahead of its competitors?
There was a time when the market for ‘read it later’ apps was scarce, but now there’s plenty of competition, with clients such as Readability and Papermill providing similar services. The main reason for its saturation was the speed at which the demand for this type of service took off – some of you are probably reading this article through a ‘read it later’ client now!
When I was a kid, there were a few things I loved: baseball, my Walkman (woo), and video games. With video games, my Sega Genesis and Game Gear (which was way, way ahead of its time) were the best consoles. Of course, the games I loved the most were those in the Sonic franchise. Sonic 2 and 3 were golden for me, especially after my grandmother got me Sonic and Knuckles as a gift at the end of one school year.
Since moving on to to more advanced gaming consoles, I’ve missed the classic play of those old school video games. My hope was that Sonic 4 Episode 1 would take me back. Let’s see how it stacks up to my very fond childhood memories.
Pudding Camera is yet another tantalizing Android app for budding photographers. While it lacks some of the extensive features of paid alternatives, it’s a sleek and simple application, featuring a number of filters and camera styles to spice up your snaps. But is it worth giving a go?
If you’re tired of taking mediocre photos on your mobile, this could turn out to be your new favourite app. You won’t need knowledge of photography or even much common sense to use it; and what’s more, it’s completely free.
