Fragger 2

Fragger

Tuesday, March 26, 2013 No Comments

With 12 sets of 30 levels (if my math is right, that’s roughly 425.6 trillion levels (note: I’m awful at math)), Fragger is loaded with grenade lobbing fun. Ranging from simple to remarkably difficult puzzles, the game isn’t just addictive, but also offers a fair bit of challenge as well. And like most games of […]

Star Wars Pinball

Tuesday, February 26, 2013 No Comments

I could probably gush about the The Empire Strikes Back table for Star Wars Pinball all day, if not for our 100 word limit and if there weren’t two other tables included in the pack. So, to be concise, the Empire table wholly lived up to my hopes. I was instantly hooked. I was also […]

Feed Me Oil

Monday, July 16, 2012 No Comments

Rather reminiscent of World of Goo, but somewhat reversed, Feed Me Oil tasks you to help… monsters(?) save their world from industrial disaster by redirecting oil spills into their gaping maws. Using a variety of platforms and other tools, you’ve got to get the oil from the drain into their mouths using the lowest number […]

I never thought I would be into Boggle. The game, so I thought, was not for me. How much fun could finding words in a set square box of letters be?  As it turns out I was quite wrong. It’s confoundingly fun, and I can’t get enough of Wordament, the free worldwide tournament-style take on […]

Samsung Focus

Wednesday, January 25, 2012 1 Comment

There’s nothing like a new phone with all the bells and whistles to make a tech lover happy. Especially when it works. And while the Samsung Focus isn’t exactly new by today’s standards (it is already a year old, after all), and it certainly does work. Except when it doesn’t… but that’s not exactly a […]

HTC 7 Surround (w/ Video Review)

Thursday, February 17, 2011 No Comments

The HTC 7 Surround is the only Windows Phone 7 device that, as its name suggests, features a surround sound speaker, and I can understand why. It’s pointless and doesn’t really work! Even if it worked, the only situations where you’d need surround sound on a mobile device without headphones would be in places where […]

LG Optimus 7 (w/ Video Review)

Tuesday, January 25, 2011 No Comments

LG’s Optimus 7 is essentially the Optimus Quantum‘s taller, slimmer and sleeker sibling. Sure, it may get some style points over its little brother, but it secretly knows that it’s lacking in certain departments… down there. Of course, in this case, the “down there” is quite visible to all – the lack of the QWERTY […]

LG Optimus Quantum

Tuesday, December 7, 2010 3 Comments

After a week with LG’s Optimus Quantum, I’m sure of a few things. It’s a solid piece of hardware that looks and feels like it can handle regular use. The QWERTY slider keyboard/touchscreen mix is awesome. Of the four Windows Phone 7 models available in Canada, it’s the only one with this feature, and it […]
