AAQR: Zombie Rider (game)

Zombie Rider is one of those 2D games similar to "trials", where you need to get this vehicle through various 2D "terrain" without wiping out, and do minimum time as possible. You can accelerate and decelerate, and that's about it. However, as there are hills, jumps, gaps, and so on, it's not as easy as it sounds.

Oh, and your rider's a zombie on a Harley-like bike. Eh?

It's rather interesting, but not that innovative.

AAQR: Tropical Fish Shop (game)

Tropical Fish Shop is a "match 3" game a lot like Bejeweled, but with underwater theme. You have to periodically match "air bubbles" to increase your air supply, and you have requirements to do X number of certain creature per "trip".

There's a story about how Annabel, who wants to live near a beach and do diving all the time, need to do this for a dive shop (who also sells tropical fish).

Not bad.

AAQR: Seven Stars 3D (game)

Seven Stars is a Chinese app (and still have a lot of Chinese in it). The story is hokey, some nasty God made off with the NorthStar and you have to go through the Big Dipper to get it back.

How this backstory links up with "moving a ball through 3D maze" is beyond me.

The visuals are quite good, though the tilt sensing is a bit off. If you like this sort of game give it a try.

This version is the paid version. There's a free version too.

AAQR: CandySwipe (game)

This is another Amazon AppStore Giveaway of the Day.

CandySwipe is a casual game where all you do is "swipe" as many of the same object consecutively as possible. You can go up/down/left/right/diagonal. You have a time limit, so do as many as you can!

And that's it. It's sorta fun for short stretches, but lack of additional challenges is meh.

6/10

AAQR: Hungry Monstr (game)

This game was one of the Amazon App Store Giveaway of the Day.

Hungry Monstr (that's no E) is an action game. Your job is to prevent the Monstrs from reaching the ice cream cart by "flicking" them to the appropriate.. vacuum cleaner tubes. There are four kinds, so you have to send the right ones to the right tube, or you'll clog it up.

And that's it. Really.

Meh.  (6 out of 10)
