Game Review: Prodigy Math Game

In late November, my niece told me she was playing Prodigy. She told me it’s a math game and she was level 6 at that time. For Christmas, she wanted a Prodigy membership as a gift. So, my sister gifted her 2 months membership. It was around $10 for each month and she bought only 2 because my sister thinks she might lose interest. Now, my niece said she’s planning to buy 6 more months since she’s level 60 and she’s still enjoying it.

What is this game all about? Prodigy is a math game for students. They battle foes, visit islands, customize their players, have pets, collect items while answering math questions according to their grade level and location. The game has 100 levels. Even if you reach the max levels, there are still things for you to keep your interest with the game.

Ipod Touch Game Review: China Mahjong 2

mahjongI love my iPod Touch.  It’s the perfect replacement to my Palm Zire 72 which keeps dying on me in the middle of the game.  I read ebooks using Stanza, note down my expenses using iXpenseIT, write notes using Fliq and surf the web using Safari.  I also load it up with games like Solitaire, Word Wrap, Deal or No Deal (Lite), Mancala, TicTacTouch and Bowl Lite.

As I only have a credit card issued in China, I can only buy apps from the Chinese Apps Stores.  This is a bummer because the China store doesn’t have a Games category and if they do have games they’re kinda corny.  A games which I’ve been searching for quite some time is Mahjong.  This Mahjong is not the pairs game which is readily available from the US apps store but the Chinese Mahjong with the chow, pong and win.

Game Review: Fashion Season

fashion-season-screenshot0I’ve been a fan of Mysteries of Horus since it came out.  When I had a Palm PDA, I got hooked with Shapeshifter.  I was so hooked with it that my PDA will suddenly die down then I will use my sister’s PDA and will play it till it ran out of battery.  I remember playing it till late at night and my hand will develop cramps.  What’s the connection with this and the new game I’m going to review?  It has elements of Shapeshifter and Gem Shop (also one of my faves).

Fashion Season is a game developed by Alawar Games.  It’s not one of the latest but it’s the one I’m playing more lately.  It’s a cross of Shapeshifter where you fill in empty fields with the same shape with matching colors generating more points and Gem Shop where you have customers who purchase clothes by filling up the clothes “cup”.   A bonus level where you’ll solve a puzzle which I don’t know what’s the point for as you don’t earn coins or anything.   A clothes catalog with 16 clothes with different values which you purchase with the coins you win during the game and as bonus at the end of each level.  To sweeten the mood of your customers, you can either offer them magazines, coffee or gift.  A reminder though, they don’t refill after each level.

Game Review: Fishco

I’m bored and I’m craving for seafood! So, when I was checking the new releases in Reflexive.com, Fishco enhance my curiosity and became my latest PC game download.

Game Review: Ranch Rush

I didn’t know this game at first.  My brother suggested it after I reviewed Farm Frenzy  2.  I admit it’s better than Farm Frenzy 2 as it wasn’t too difficult that you’ll get frustrated when you don’t complete it and it’s not too easy to lose your interest.

Ranch Rush involves a young lady farmer.  She started out with a barn, well and a stack of crates.  It involves 8 weeks with a Farmer’s Market for the first 7 weeks.  She needs to plant clover, tomato, wheat, corn, grapes and pumpkin.  She also needs to harvest honey, ostrich eggs and milk and produce cheese, tomato sauce, and bread.
