Rebuilding the Island

Unless you have been living under a rock, you are sure to have noticed the influx of games that revolve around complete puzzles in order to rebuild something, be it mansions or gardens. A new addition to this genre of gaming is Lost Island: Blast Adventure. I like this game because instead of a match three, is a … blow up blocks of a color. It’s the same premise, but different. From what I have seen in the game, there are lots of interesting characters and a mystery to unravel through the power of archeology. I would check it out if you can so you can have a seal. Have I told you that you get a seal friend?

You can get this game on Android and iOS.

My Little Vet Clinic

One of the many recent games that I have downloaded on my phone has Pet Rescue. What can I say about it other than it is super adorable? The animal and character designs are well done. The simple animations are absolutely perfect. The premise of the game is that you are running a vet clinic with different services that you can upgrade your care for animals and help out missing animals. The first part is more time management and the second is waiting for a time to expire. There are also three worlds currently available as I am writing this. I have only played in two of them. The different worlds have different services you can offer and different animals to rescue. My one complaint is that the vets don’t get different outfits for the different world. I know that it is a silly complaint, but I just think it would be really cute.

You can get that game for Android and a bunch of random platforms from I saw.

Gaming for the Planet

To be clear, I am considering JouleBug a game because that is what it is called in the GooglePlay store. It’s more of a competition so close enough. What I love about this “game” is that you work with other people to save the planet. There are a variety of tasks you can “Buzz” to tell the world that you did an action to help the environment. There are also competitions every once in a while to show off you world-saving actions to everyone involved. My one problem is that it’s so hard to remember to buzz in, and that is of no fault of the app. At this point, I just do things and realize that hours later I could have buzzed something. Also, I’m a vegetarian, and there is an action that says go a day without meat, so I literally could get that one every day if I were to remember. But I do think this is a fun app to use if you wanted to compete with your friends over something.

You can get the app for Android and iOS. If you would like more information about the company, the website is here. There are also similar apps with slightly different functions from this company if you want to check them out.

Miraculous Run

A new app game that is taking my heart way is Miraculous Ladybug and Cat Noir – The Official Game. The set up is very much like Temple Run, but it isn’t a endless runner, and that is a possitive. Instead of endlessly trying to best your score every single time, there are goals to accomplish in every single time. Completing the goal of every single level with a three-star rating. For me, that is more of an incentive than beating a high score each and every run. The locations change up a tiny bit and you get to see different versions of your favorite characters. I also love how based on who you are playing as, the movements change to better reflect the characters. That is my favorite part of the animation. There are also scenes from the show that is a tribute to the source material. Truely brilliant and adorable.

You can get the game on Andriod and iOS.

You Shouldn’t Put Power in My Hands

Recently, I have discovered the mobile game “Balance.” Balance is a blocky puzzle and logic game. The goal is to give cities power. Sounds simple right. Well, it starts that way, then it makes you want to pull your hair out when if has puzzles off the course that make no sense to you. Trust me. I spent all night trying to figure out one of the puzzles, but once you start doing it, it makes sense. Sorta. Small wires can’t handle currents as well as bigger ones, but then the length of the wire also needs to be taken into consideration. It’s very trial and error. I’m still trying to completely finish this game (with all 3 stars), but I would definitely check this out if you can. It is available for Android and iOS.

Also, please recommend more puzzle games that are like Candy Crush. I’m always looking for more that I can waste playing. (Pretty Please)

Not a Room Escape

Very recently, I can across a game called The Room because of my weird love of room escape games, except this wasn’t a room escape game. But it was good. You stay in a room and unlock different items to uncover more and more secrets. The puzzles are at a reasonable difficulty if you are not binge-playing close to midnight and are running on fumes. I got the game here apart of Kindle’s Underground (p.s.: things are free here). I don’t know how to find it other than this because I keep getting the horrible movie. But if you want to find this game elsewhere, it was developed by Fireproof Games. But this game is awesome, and make sure the have your headphones in; the music is amazing!

Skiing for Llamas

I know it has been a long time, but life happens. I’m sure everyone understands that to some extent. For the last day though, I have been completely addicted to the game Alto’s Adventure. The premise of it is that you are on an adventure in a snowy landscape while collecting llamas. It sounds silly, but the game is completely addicting in your attempt to get better scores and unlock new characters. Not only is the game simple to play, but animation style is simply beautiful with its simplistic style. Definitely a must get, but you might what to keep you phone on a charger while playing it.

Get the game on Android, iOS and Kindle Fire.
