Zombie Strokes 3D: Review

Image
Its been around 2 years since I moved away from Hard Core PC Gaming to online Flash games / mobile games. As a mobile game developer, I am now completely into mobile gaming, especially Android games, with my latest acquisition of Motorola Atrix 2.

There are quite a large number of games that I played in my mobile in past 6 months. But the latest one which I am playing around day and night is a special one and so posting about it in here.

Zombie Strokes 3D, a grand Survival Horror Game
But what so much hype about this game, that I am blogging about it here, after several months of inactivity? One thing, its from the Company (Smaat Apps and Technologies) where I work :-) and another thing, I believe it truly gives a unique gameplay experience unlike most clones out there.

The Visual and Audio Quality is definitely of International Standards. Full Credits to direction of Deepak Aravind; tec…

Kingdom Rush: Review

Image
A good tower defense game with simple and neat graphics that takes place in a medieval fantasy setting. The game is slow placed, unlike most other tower defense games, but intensive at harder levels. The difficulty of the game increases linearly with new monsters and towers (and their upgrades) being introduced at right levels.

The monsters and towers in the game has various types of attacks and defenses and they are very well balanced. The power ups are awesome :-)



Here is my progress through the game as of writing:

Completed 10 levels with 3 stars in first 8 levels and fewer stars in later levelsScored 33 of 62 stars

Pros: Visual Presentation, Slow pace of the game
Cons: Not much addictive

Signing off,

GemCraft Labyrinth - Best Tower Defence Game

Image
Gemcraft, The most comprehensive and brilliantly designed Tower Defence game, I ever played.

Loads and Loads of Unique Maps.Awesome variety of Gems and their Combinations.Superb Strategy.Excellent Visuals.Best Sound Effects.
Overall, its just plain awesome and I LOVE the game. But its too much to finish in one single sit. But thanks to the saveable profile, that I played this, almost a year back and I am able to continue with that old profile now. Completed a dozen maps and shelving it again for later play.

Grand Defense - HD Battle

Image
I am very much into Tower defense games these days and I recently played quite a couple of matches in Grand Defense - HD Battle in iPad. Its not a super-duper, genre changing RD game, but its a standard, very balanced and simple TD game that is very much worth being a free one.

The catchy feature of this game is its neat interface and clean graphics. Many stats that will be usually shown in other TD games like HP, defense, attack power, range and other such numbers are totally avoided, but hit points and range are shown visually with appropriate graphics. I love the simplicity of this game. As a hard core TD player, I dislike the fact that I cant see how exactly the defense upgrades improves them. Also seeing all the stats and numbers and making them raise as I play / upgrade is very much satisfying, but I miss all those in this game. But for a casual player, I guess this is what that is appropriate.

Autobot Stronghold

Image
Autobot Stronghold is a tower defense game based on the film 'Transformers'. Our objective is to defend the base from the Decepticons with the following autobots: Bumblebee, Jazz, Ironhide, Ratchet and Optimus Prime. Each autobot has its own pros and cons. The game consists of 50 waves of increasing difficulty, comprised of a variety of decepticons.

After experimenting with all the autobots, I found that placing just Ironhides at appropriate positions is enough to hold back for the first half of the game. Then after you get access to Optimus Prime, deploying just that and upgrading Prime is enough to beat the whole game.

After a couple of loses, I beat the game on my 4th or 5th try. Its not a very complex, addictive tower defense with loads of features. But a simple one which is good for the first few times.

Thanks to my friend Sankar Ganesh for letting me know of this good game.

Warzone

Image
Gameplay:
Warzone is a tower defense game where your objective is to defend your HQ from the waves of enemy tanks by constructing defensive structures. There are many maps to choose from and different types of game modes.

The game is too good because both the enemy units and our defenses are so well balanced that you need to construct all types structures to counter the variety of enemy units at strategic positions. The maps are initially empty at the start, it is upto the player to shape up the path that the enemy takes to his/her advantage. This gives infinite possibilities where player can try out a different number of placements to find a best placement plan.

Apart from the defensive structures, the player has the power to drop bomb and nuke at a given point which has a one time area damage effect, very much useful at crysis especially at later stages.

Deus Ex

Deus Ex is one of the best RPG I ever played, mixed with conspiracy theories, futuristic elements all happening in our real world locations, rather than some fantasy world. The whole plot can be stated as something as follows.

Plot In order to maintain peace and order, United Nations form a group named UNATCO, which has access to some other highly advanced sophisticated technologies in the world, particularly Nano-Augmentation, by which people are turned super soldiers by injection of nano-particles in their body.
Player is one of such Nano-Agent named JC Denton, who starts with the mission of recovering stolen Ambrosia supplies and in the process meets up with various personalities from different organisations, making critical decisions that branches the story in completely weird paths, visiting many places in the world including New york, Hong Kong and many more. My Play The world is ravaged by a fatal disease called "Gray Death" and there is a cure named "Ambrosia&q…
