Dumb Ways to Die” has finally made it to Android after the game has been available for iOS for several months.  If there was ever a mobile game that I had seen for Apple products but not been able to play because I prefer not to use an iPhone (not violently, I’m not crazy).  What is Dumb Ways to Die?  I’m assuming if you’ve found this article you’ve seen the viral video sensation created as a PSA by Metro Trains in Melbourne, Australia.

Here’s the video to refresh your memory:

Super Budget Brothers podcast

Listen to the episode here.

“Race the Sun is an intense action game that could be described as a mash-up of Star Fox and Temple Run with a community focus.”

Pick up the game here.

Pros:
– Simple runner concept plays well to a 3D environment
– Controls are smooth and responsive
– Unlocking items and powerups through challenges gives the game a natural difficulty curve

Cons:
– Price point feels a bit high
– Some of the challenges seem a bit on the ridiculous side
– Average game is average

Don’t Starve

ds_darkness_1920x1200

For day #14 in the Game a Day Challenge, today we tested our will to survive and dove into “Don’t Starve.”  Don’t Starve is a open survival game which requires players to build a home and sustainable living arrangements while worrying about their health, hunger, sanity, and all manner of wild beasts.

Don’t Starve does have an “Adventure Mode,” which is more or less the equivalent of a story mode.  We elected to consider the game a success if we survived 30 days in the never ending survival mode instead because, well, to be quite blunt adventure mode is hecka hard!  There is no realistic way Continue reading

Zombie Driver is an arcade/adventure(?) game in which you are a driver who cruises through a zombie infested city killing the walkers and saving fellow survivors.  The story goes on to reveal how the zombies Continue reading

Lone Survivor Review

Today was the return to long games and frustrated play as I dove into “Lone Survivor.”  Lone Survivor is a horror adventure game in which you play a man who lives alone and has no apparent history, and who is trying to discover where the citizens in his hometown have gone and where the zombie-like creatures who are terrorizing the city came from.  Sadly, those questions don’t really get answered, and that’s my big complaint with the game.

In an adventure game with graphics meant to instill nostalgia the story is typically the aspect which carries the rest of the game.  Lone Survivor creates a lot of story points Continue reading
