I know I don’t normally do product reviews on this site, but I just purchased a Prep Solutions Cherry Pitter and I wanted to pass it on.

Temple Run: Brave

Standard

I’m sure this review is a bit late. I’ve had the game for a while now and I’m just getting to the review.  I really enjoy this game, even more so than Temple Run 1 & 2 and definitely more than Temple Run OZ.

If you’ve played any of the Temple games, you know the premise. Something bad is chasing you and you have to out run it. In this case, you’re being chased by a bear (the one from the movie, who’s name escapes me at the moment.)

Chimpact

Standard

imageThis is an addicting little game made by Yippee! Entertainment. The goal is to get your Monkey from tree limb to tree limb by throwing him via a sling.

This is not as easy as it sounds. Sometimes, you have to get him real high. Sometimes, you have to fit him through a narrow opening. After you rise in levels, you get to play the little girl monkey (I mention this because that’s who is in my screenshots.)

Not only do you have to make it home, but you have to find gems. This is not always an easy task. The gems can be hidden in branches, behind leaves or right out in the open.

UPDATE: First, one complaint:  The game will flip your chimp if you take too long.  Perhaps, this is something to do with my phone (Samsung Galaxy IIIS) or it is a part of the game.  I’m not sure, but it’s annoying.  Second, I’ve played some of the Totem Trail and the Quick Play, which I didn’t mention above.  These are fun little ditties as well.

Assassin’s Creed IV – Black Flag

Standard

The trailer for this game looks amazing. Even though I have yet to finish Assassin’s Creed 3, I’m already looking ahead to being able to play this one.

This storyline takes us from Colonial America (playing as Connor) to 1715 and the Caribbean – playing as Connor’s grandfather, Captain Edward Kenway.

There just isn’t enough time in the day to play them all.

On a humorous side note, I watched one of the Assassin’s Creed IV trailers on YouTube and saw the videos recommended to watch next. Among the game videos was Don Rickles at Ronald Reagan’s Second Inugural. Seems like a crazy combination to me.

Shine Runner

Standard

I downloaded Shine Runner from Amazon on Friday night.  I ended up playing it for the next hour or so.  I’m not very good at racing games – I’ll admit that right up front – but this game is so much more than just a racing game.

Yes, you do get to race a flat-bottomed fanboat through a backwoods bayou. However; the whole point is to collect money and purchase items that you can sell (hopefully for a profit) at the next location.ShineRunner

So, there’s a little strategy involved that usually isn’t in a pure racing game.  That’s the part I liked best – trying to guess how the money is going to pay out.  What should you purchase to make the most amount of money, because at the end of the game, the amount of money is what counts.  For the racing part of the game, well, you can’t go wrong.  You get to smash into everything.  Pretty much if you enjoy destroying docks, shacks and outhouses this is the game for you. If you enjoy outrunning the police (and, who wouldn’t?), this is the game for you.  At only $.99 on Amazon, you really can’t go wrong.  But, don’t just trust my opinion, view their trailer and make up your own mind.
