Dystopia Desolation — AR Horror is a fascinating game that takes the general concept of Pokemon Go and gives it a dark twist.

Offered for free through the iTunes Store, this app makes exploring all your local lurks a new experience.

Features:

With an intriguing name, Dystopia Desolation, by Jonathan Corner, actually offers players a game in concept that is much more familiar to many of them than its name implies.

As indicated previously, the general concept of this app rests on much of the same idea as the instant success app, Pokemon Go. However, unlike in Pokemon Go where your primary purpose involves the capturing and evolving of relatively cute creatures, Dystopia Desolation features a terrifying gang of zombies and other monsters.

These creatures are scattered throughout your actual GPS map, meaning that you travel to various locations in order to add them to your crew.

Characters can be leveled up throughout the app, making them more powerful and more likely to win your in-app battles.

For fans who revel in the dark side and love monsters, Dystopia Desolation — AR Horror provides a good number of very cool characters to search out.

However, for others who are just want to find characters, the app doesn’t really offer you anything that the already popular Pokemon Go doesn’t already. In other words, this game has a pretty specific target audience.

The appearance of Dystopia Desolation really is not its strong point. Characters are decently detailed, but it’s really their names and special features that sets them apart more than any particularly impressive graphics.

Some monsters even appeared somewhat blurry at times.  As far as the layout of the game goes, however, the app’s Apple Store page provides helpful tips on how to best navigate and utilize the app, and with these bits of advice, figuring out how to get around Dystopia Desolation is really doable.

Value:

Dystopia Desolation — AR Horror, as mentioned previously, is a game designed for a very specific target audience. With this in mind, this game is an excellent value and definitely worth a download.

It’s free with optional in-app purchases available if you want to advance your characters faster. The characters are unique, even though the concept of the game is definitely borrowed from an already existing app.

While the graphics of Dystopia Desolation aren’t particularly impressive, they do get the job done and don’t detract from the overall fun of the app.

Overall, while Dystopia Desolation may not be seen as an entertaining app by some, it will probably be well received by its target audience.

Texas Jack Poker Combines Two Card Games into One

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Card games are certainly plentiful on the App Store, and the nice thing is that each one usually offers something different for players to enjoy.

Texas Jack Poker is an entertaining and unique card game that combines Texas hold ’em and blackjack.

It’s a little tricky to get used to, but it’s definitely fun to play once you have the basics down.

Concept and Gameplay:

I play card games relatively infrequently, so I tend to forget basic rules fairly quickly. This is especially true when it comes to various types of poker games.

Luckily Texas Jack Poker, created by Sheldon Martin, teaches new players the basics of the game through a helpful video that can be accessed from the main menu. It covers all of the fundamentals needed to play, so I definitely recommend checking it out when you first download the game.

I won’t go in-depth on how to play Texas Jack Poker, but I will say that it can be very confusing for new players. I spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to move the game along. The nice thing about this is that it is single player, so you don’t have to worry about holding up others while learning how to play.

In terms of graphics navigation, I really like the fact that Texas Jack Poker is low-key on both. You won’t see flashy animations or a bunch of fanfare; this is obviously designed to be a simple and straightforward card game.

Features:

Just because Texas Jack Poker is single player doesn’t mean you can’t compete with others around the world.

The game features a built-in leaderboard (separate from Game Center), but you have to create an account in order to be ranked.

Texas Jack Poker also includes an impressive statistics section that gives you a detailed breakdown of your performance on a daily, weekly, monthly, and all time basis.

Value:

Texas Jack Poker is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. There is a heavy presence of ads, they can optionally be disabled for $0.99. One thing I couldn’t figure out is whether or not you have to buy additional chips via in-app purchase if you happen to run out.

I couldn’t find a way to earn additional chips by watching ads, but hopefully this isn’t the case.

Overall, Texas Jack Poker is a great card game that’s definitely worth a try if you enjoy poker and blackjack. It’s easy to get the hang of it and is a great option for anyone who would rather play solo.

Arcade games are both fun and addicting to play, especially when you’re looking for a way to keep busy. Unlike complex RPGs and other fantasy games, you can play arcade games for minutes or hours at a time.

Swift Plane is a creative and fun new endless runner that really puts your reflexes to the test.

It’s an endless arcade game that’s like Doodle Jump and others, but it has much more variety.

Concept and Gameplay:

Swift Plane, by Mustplay Games Private Limited, is a pretty simple game that’s easy to play once you get the basics figured out.

I like the fact that the tutorial shows you different maneuvers. You can control your airplane by swiping up, down, left, or right to avoid obstacles.

Swift Plane is that it’s a bit frustrating to play at first because obstacles can be difficult to judge. The game throws a few twists in by employing obstacles that move, requiring you to be on your toes.

Playing Swift Plane often means you’ll be able to unlock the various achievements that are built into the game. You’re rewarded with gems if you complete tasks, making it much easier to unlock new airplanes and maps.

When it comes to graphics and gameplay, Swift Plane is actually pretty nice to look at. I like the use of unique “low poly art” design.

Overall, anyone who is looking for a fun and addicting arcade game will certainly enjoy Swift Plane.

There are plenty of new things to unlock like maps and airplanes. It’s definitely worth the download and you won’t have to dish out cash in order to unlock the cool stuff.

Learning how to get along with others is one of the most important skills you can develop as an adult. However, it never hurts to have a little assistance when it comes to gaining insight on your relationship with a friend or coworker.

That’s where PersonalityMatch comes into play.

PersonalityMatch is a fantastic personality app that uses the Myers-Briggs personality system to help you determine your personality type and see how it correlates with others.

Concept and Functionality:

Even if you’ve taken the Myers-Briggs test in the past and you know your personality type, PersonalityMatch, by Online Commerce Group BV, is worth checking out. It’s fun to use and doesn’t exhaust you with an endless set of questions.

The built-in quiz took me a couple minutes to complete and my results matched what I’ve received before.

Unlike other personality apps that tend to nickel and dime users, PersonalityMatch provides a wealth of information right out of the gate. You can easily see a detailed breakdown of your personality type and what each characteristic means.

This is fantastic for anyone who has never taken the test before and would like to see a breakdown of each characteristic.

The real reason it was developed centers around the ability to compare your personality type with someone else to see how compatible you are.

This can be done with ease and the app rates your compatibility on scale of 0% to 100%. The higher the number, the more compatible you are.

As you can probably imagine, PersonalityMatch is loaded with awesome features to help you understand yourself better.

Along with in-depth details on your specific personality type, you can even connect with friends and see how you compare with them once they’ve taken the test for themselves.

PersonalityMatch even features a career path analysis, but unfortunately it’s locked unless you pay $2.99. This isn’t really a huge drawback, though, because not everyone will be concerned about finding the right career.

However, students and professionals who are looking to make a change will definitely find the information in PersonalityMatch useful.

Personally I wouldn’t take it as serious career advice, but you may stumble on something you wouldn’t have otherwise thought of and get some real value from its assessment.

Value:

PersonalityMatch is available to download from the App Store for free and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. Aside from the in-app purchases for extra features, you don’t have to worry about ads. As I mentioned above, the value of additional features totally depends on your situation.

Overall, PersonalityMatch is a fantastic personality tool to help you understand yourself better and see how compatible you are with others.

You’ll be able to gain insight into your relationships and analyze why they work the way they do.

Think Fast in Color Dash!

Color Dash! is an exciting fast-paced games that challenges you to think quickly and concentrate on the task at hand.

Free through the iTunes Store, this game makes you think on your toes.

Features:

Color Dash!, as indicated by its name, is app where your quick recognition of colors is essential for success.

However, you’re thrown for a twist in this clever game, by Hari Pingali. Even though your job is to correctly match the word color to the color block, the actual word itself is often spelling out a different color which really distracts your mind from its task.

For instance, while the font coloring that you need to match is blue, the letters of the word itself might read “red.”

As simple as this sounds it’s actually an impressively tricky game, particularly when paired with a need to work quickly.

Different challenges such as constantly moving locations of colors within the game keep things fresh even when you’re feeling like an “experienced” player.

Playing Color Dash! is a smooth operation; I found that the app didn’t lag at all as I worked towards trying to make high scores, although my brain definitely felt like it was lagging at times!

As a whole, this app offers an entertaining way to challenge your brain.

Appearance and Layout:

Color Dash! iPhone App Review

Color Dash! iPhone Game

However, while Color Dash! is a fun game conceptually, it’s a bit lacking in visual appeal.

This is not just because the colors are very glaringly bright (it’s understood these colors are an essential part of the app) but it’s more an issue of an overall non-impressive usage of layout and fonts.

Specifically, the typography within the app feels old and dated–and not in a classic, vintage way.

The layout of Color Dash! is not intuitive; navigating through Color Dash! should be a seemingly simple task, but the in-app navigational titles aren’t as clearly descriptive as ideal.

While this is definitely a fun game, it’s not one that will attract players through its graphics.

Value:

Color Dash! is an entertaining game. It’s simple to grasp the concept of, but it does make you think differently than your mind is naturally inclined.

Mastering it takes a focus and concentration.

The fact that it’s a free game definitely also adds to its appeal–anyone can download it to try it out risk-free. However, as mentioned previously, the visual appeal of Color Dash! is somewhat lacking; the graphics are much less exciting than those of many other quick-thinking apps on the market today.

We expect this game to improve over time with more appealing graphics and a much improved user-friendly navigational system.

Be Master of the Universe with Lonely Sun

LONELY SUN – Be Gravity’s Guiding Hand

iPhone Game Review by TheiPhoneAppReview.com

Reviewed by Marilyn Chau

Lonely Sun is an exciting and innovative game that challenges players to be the “guiding hand of gravity” and bring together an entire solar system.

Sold for under $3 from the iTunes Store, this game has a fascinatingly unique storyline.

Features:

Lonely Sun–Be Gravity’s Guiding Hand, by Rinikulous Games Corp, is a game whose storyline is somewhat summed up in its app name.

Specifically, players within this game are tasked with the job of bringing together a solar system around the “lonely sun” in order to complete the destiny of the cosmos.

This task is accomplished through multiple levels, each designed to help you bring into the system a unique planet until the entire mission is accomplished. Each of these planets is its own fascinating world as well.

However, the task of being “gravity’s guiding hand” in bringing together these planets is easier said than done, as you must also avoid the dangerous matter flying about in the universe as well.

Overall, while I really enjoyed the concept of Lonely Sun, I do think it would be more of a fulfilling game if there were more checkpoints throughout.

While it’s certainly true that “real life” doesn’t have checkpoints, it’s also true that “real life” isn’t an iOS game.

Appearance and Layout:

Just as the overall storyline concept for Lonely Sun is unique, so are the graphics for this game.

In fact, these uniquely beautiful graphics are among the most impressive features of the game; they provide the player with a design that is both simplistic and hauntingly beautiful all at once.

Although the goal of Lonely Sun might seem overwhelming to some (afterall, arranging a solar system is a bit of a large task), the graphic design of this game certainly helps to make this game a more soothing than tiring one.

The layout of this app is equally well done; even first time players should find navigating through the game to be a relatively simple task.

Value:

As mentioned above, Lonely Sun can be downloaded for $2.79. This is a higher price tag that that of the many free games on the iOS store today, and because of this, many players will likely be deterred from trying out the game in the first place.

However, for players who do decide to give it a chance, they probably won’t be disappointed. The graphics and storyline offered in Lonely Sun are both fresh and exciting.

Still, for players who prefer games with frequent and consistent “checkpoints” throughout, Lonely Sun might not be the best investment.
