Great Little War Game Review ! iOS Android

16 08 2012

Great Little War Game is a turn-based strategy game available for £0.69 on iOS and $0.99 for Android.

This game was originally higher priced, but with the release of its new sibling Great Big War Game ($2.99  on both platforms) its price has been cut and is the current bargain of the minute with a lot of gamers !

I know a lot of people grudge paying for apps, regardless of the miniscule price but this game really is worth the money. If you can’t justify less than £1 for a game when you possibly spend £30/40 on a console game then I know I can’t sway you anyway..

The game is turn-based strategy so each player takes a turn, finishes his moves, then the opponent completes their move. This is great, especially for a mobile platform when you may not be spending 100% of your concentration on the game, or are playing it in broken up chunks throughout the day, it doesn’t require your undivided attention to be great and has plenty of missions to keep you occupied for some time !

The video above gives a good idea of the gameplay, showing a good proportion of the first mission of the campaign. The game is obviously war based, and is very similar to games such as Advance Wars for the Nintendo DS with each mission having its own required objectives for completion.

The games graphics are really crisp and great for the price as well as providing a smooth flowing game with no Ad’s. For the price, this is a bargain. It is very similar to Great Big War Game and for a third of the price you definately don’t get a third of the game!




Nintendo 3DS, Success or Flop?

3 07 2012

Since Handheld gaming became a bit hit the devices have sold in the millions, mainly the gameboy range, and later the Nintendo DS and Sony PSP range.

Recently we have seen new devices from Nintendo as well as Sony but have they been as big as the manufacturers would have hoped ?

The Nintendo 3DS has been released for over a year now, at the time of its launch it boasted technology that it thought would change the way we game, and the way all of our screens worked as we move deeper and deeper into a 3D civilisation.

The 3DS screen works in an interesting and technical way which i shaln’t bore you with explaining in its entirity but this picture explains it pretty well ! Basically in a normal 3D film, the screen is polarised and one eye sees one picture whilst the other sees a different one, your brain then puts these together to get a composite 3D image, in the 3DS a parallax barrier controls the way the light leaves the LCD display, meaning different images reach different eyes.

This was seen to be the way 3D would evolve at the time but as of yet, we have still to see another application of this technology being used as effectively as we would have thought.

Worldwide the 3DS has sold over 17 million units, the GameBoy and GameBoy colour Nintendo released sold over 115 million units, so as you can see.. the 3DS is more like a drop in the pond in relation to figures in comparison with its older brother.

Even though the 3DS hasnt brought home the numbers it maybe should have done, it does still make a great device to own for mobile gaming. Whilst the PSP is more of a console gaming miniature, the DS does not attempt to be this at all, the style of gaming is completely different and unique in its own way and has brought many generations of gamers to games who may have never have considered it before, with the popularity of brain training and puzzle type games by far the most popular sellers.

These devices have also became more versatile with wireless connectivity to the internet with inbuilt browsers and stores for downloadable content including music and video, it seems as though this is an attempt by Nintendo to through as many features into the device as possible to maximise sales but sadly it hasnt done so.

I own a device, and was unfortunate enough to pay launch price before it dropped by £100 ! So obviously im a fan, but i believe this device could be far more popular than it currently is, especially with the current price it is going for with new devices being sold for £135, or even cheaper on the pre-owned market with a typical new package price including a best selling game £155.

A luxury i admit ! Especially with the gaming capacity of most smartphones and tablet pc’s, but a luxury worth having as far as im concerned !
