After more than a month out of the world Showmetech (my last review was about the game Marvel vs. Capcom 3), I’m back in style for small appliances.
Today I start a small series with game reviews for iPhone (some are also available for iPad and Android), all simple but, I already notice in advance, that they are easily addictive. Some are old acquaintances, others may be new and you will have a bit of everything: arcade, racing, strategy, fighting. To begin, I will address the following headings: “The Simpsons“,“Edge» and «Tiny Wings“. Come on?
The Simpson Arcade
Available for: iPhonePrice: $ 2.99
Who has never spent hours in an arcade machine playing the game of Simpsons when small? (note: valid question for those who spent pinball chips in the 90s, okay?) Now, everyone who owns an iPhone can venture into Springfield in a beat ‘em up game as fun as that of 1991. The scheme here it is practically the same as always: 2D characters, a jump button and a punch button, power ups spread throughout the stage in the best “Final Fight” style. The story? Homer and the donuts, as usual. Here the only character available to play is Homer but his family always shows up to help out in the middle of the battle. A total of 6 worlds and more than 25 levels make this game a fun and unpretentious acquisition. Worth buying? Fortunately, this game has a free trial version, where you only play one level, which already serves as a thermometer for those who want to test the game before actually purchasing it. Luckily I bought this game in a flash sale from Electronic Arts at App Store and the game came out a third of its original value, which was worth my money.
Available for: iPhone and iPadPrice: $ 2.99
Patience, attention and timing are indispensable for this game. Originally released only for the iPhone (and since November on the iPad), “Edge” is that type of game that you either love or hate. With three-dimensional graphics, the objective of the game is to roll a cube (as strange as it may sound) through puzzles full of tricks until you reach the final portal. The game itself is very simple, with intuitive and very sensitive commands too. Vibrant colors and dynamism are present in the 46 levels of this award-winning game around the world. Worth buying? If you are a puzzle fanatic, buy now; if not, play it on someone’s device. Click here to see a video of the game.

Attention: extremely addictive casual game. This game is the newest on this list (it was released in late November) and its protagonist is a bird that has wings too small to fly. The goal? Give that impulse to make the bird reach the skies. The controls are intuitive and easy to master – the problem here is the pace. As the objective is to make the bird get a boost on the descent, you have to know the time to make the animal return to land. The game is fun and perfect for all hours and audiences! Worth buying? For sure! Everyone will have fun with this game that, besides being easy to play, has great graphics and beautiful art direction. Yes, it’s worth it!
For today I will stop here, but soon, more games for notebooks I will present here. See you later!
