Race the Sun Tips and Strategies

Perhaps you’ve downloaded Race the Sun, the stylin’ new endless flying game. If you’re struggling to unlock many of the goodies that only begin to appear once you’ve gotten pretty far in the game, you’ve come to the right place. Gamezebo has a nice collection of tips to help you out.

You may not realize this, but every 24 hours, the level in Race the Sun changes. So if you’re having a hard time on Wednesday, come back on Thursday and see how you do with Thursday’s level.

Each day’s race will remain the same, allowing you to learn the layout and slowly progress further and further into the level.

Cube Jump is Like Crossy Road in Space

If you’re into the whole Frogger/Crossy Road style of gameplay, then you’ll want to check out Cube Jump. It’s actually a lot more perilous than Crossy Road, because each time you jump you risk falling into the darkness of unknown and having to start again from scratch. Check it out in the video above.

Monsters Ate My Metropolis Announced

If you loved Monsters Ate My Condo as much as we did, you’re going to be jazzed to hear that Adult Swim has announced a sequel called Monsters Ate My Metropolis. Only instead of a match-three game, it’s a card battler. From Pocket Gamer:

The Monsters have progressed from eating condos to leveling entire cities, and to do so, you build a deck of powerful attacks, buffs, and other abilities. Each monster has unique perks as well, ranging from increased damage to earning more tokens.

Operation Dracula Review: “You’re going to die a lot”

Do you like your shooters to be of the “bullet hell” variety? Do you like swarms of lasers and bullets flocking across the screen as you try madly to dodge them while taking out the enemies? Operation Dracula may be your kind of game. From 148Apps’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Controls are simple though, with you dragging a ship around with your finger, and a double tap on the screen unleashing a special move. As is customary for the genre, the trick here is to learn the patterns of attack and to react accordingly. At times it can be a little frustrating (even on ‘easy’ mode), but OPERATION DRACULA’s over the top colorful nature will endear you towards what’s here.

Don’t expect to complete OPERATION DRACULA any time soon, if ever, but do expect to enjoy the ride.

Race the Sun Review: A Blast to Play

Polygonal racers are rarely this fun, says Gamezebo in their 4 out of 5 star review of Race the Sun, a game that was recently ported over from consoles and PC.

Race the Sun is a surprising little racing game that will sink its hook in you for quite some time. Don’t let the visual presentation deter you from this one, trust me (and the game’s popularity on other platforms): Race the Sun is a blast to play with.

What’s New in Angry Birds 2?

Are you playing Angry Birds 2? You probably are, or at least you probably tried it. If not, what are you waiting for? Lonnie decided to take a look at the game and offer some insightful (and, let’s be honest, some [charmingly] rambling) comments about it. Check it out above.

Check Out ‘Prune’ in Action

I can’t believe it, Lonnie actually starts this video without his signature squeaky sign-on “Hi, YouTube!” Once you get past the novelty of that, you can check out him checking out Prune, the gorgeous game about trimming trees so they grow into the light.

Race the Sun Review: Hard to Put Down

We all love a good endless runner now and again, and Race the Sun is exactly that — except with flying. It may start off kind of bare-bones and slow, but once you start unlocking stuff it picks up big time. From 148Apps’s 4-star review:

I honestly wasn’t having much fun with Race the Sun at first, but I’m glad I stuck with it. Things really open up once you start to unlock features that, honestly, should’ve probably been enabled from the start. Still, once you get going it’s difficult to stop.

Angry Birds 2 Review: Same Old Fun, But with Ads

Everyone’s had a chance to dig into the sequel to the most famous mobile game of all time by this point, and the reviews are overwhelmingly positive… you know, despite the usual nags of the free-to-play formula. From Gamezebo’s 3.5 star review:

Angry Birds 2 is a free download, so there’s nothing to be lost by giving it a try. But given how little its gameplay varies from classic Angry Birds, you might be better off paying a bit of money to grab the first game. It might seem a little bare-bones in this day and age, but “bare bones” means no lives or level timers. It’s just you, pigs, and physics. Just the way the Mighty Eagle always intended for things to be.

Angry Birds 2: Tips, Cheats, and Secrets

After buckling down for the review, Pocket Gamer has resurfaced with some helpful hints for anyone looking to maximize their gameplay in Angry Birds 2. From the article:

Angry Birds 2 is not your average Angry Birds game. We’d normally provide video guides that show you how to finish every level in the game. But for this installment, most of the stages are randomly generated. So! If you want to get better at Angry Birds 2, a traditional guide won’t help you. You can’t learn the levels – you must learn the game. You must master the way of the bird. And that’s what we’re here for.

Check out these tips to save money, beat the piggies, and generally be a brilliant human being.

Angry Birds 2 Review: Rovio at Its Best, but Freemium-ized

Angry Birds 2 is out in the wild now, and it’s a very good game. Now if only it didn’t have all those pesky free-to-play trappings… From Pocket Gamer’s 7/10 review:

Angry Birds 2 isn’t perfect, but it does manage to capture that elastic playfulness that made the original such an essential download. Does it earn its place as the first numerical sequel? It’s hard to say, and it all depends how you like your energy systems.But one thing’s for sure, in terms of scope, creativity, and sheer quality, the game underneath the hearts and currencies is Rovio the developer at its best.

To-Fu Fury Review: Boring Food, Fun Game

We’re big fans of the To-Fu series, and the latest entry looks like it delivers more of the goods. From 148Apps’s 3.5 out of 5 star review:

To-Fu Fury does a fairly good job of gradually introducing all these elements, so it’s not too tough early on, but it soon gets there. Each level offers a series of objectives too in the form of a timer, par number of moves, and a gem tracker, each rewarding you for doing things most efficiently. That’s whenTo-Fu Fury gets quite tricky, as simply passing a stage isn’t too hard. It’s also where things turn more rewarding and To-Fu Fury soon turns quite appealing. You’ll end up playing stages multiple times, but still feel like you’re progressing, given you have different aims each time. The most satisfying moments are when you finish a level having used just one more, but that’s often the trickiest technique.

Five Nights at Freddy’s 4 Review: “absolutely haunting” atmosphere

The latest scare-fest in this series about killer animatronics is yet another winner, from the sounds of it, as long as you can hear the game’s audio clearly. From Gamezebo’s 4 out of 5 star review:

Unlike past games, there are no security cameras to monitor in Five Nights at Freddy’s 4. Instead, you play as a scared child who must run between his doors, closet, and bed constantly to keep monstrous versions of the animatronics at bay (seriously – Bonnie, Chica, Foxy, and Freddy are particularly terrifying this time around).
