Alice in Chains App Review: App Gives Way to Blue

by panappticon on December 5, 2009

in App Reviews

This is going to be a pretty short review of the Alice in Chains App for the iPhone. Do you like Alice in Chains? Yes you say? Then you might want to pick up the Alice in Chains App. Don’t like them? Then you can probably stop reading now. If you’re undecided, I’d probably put the money you would spend towards this App towards buying their latest album on iTunes for $7.99.

Interactive Tracks let you play little mini-games while listening to a loop of a track. The artwork is really stunning.

Interactive Tracks let you play little mini-games while listening to a loop of a track. The artwork is really stunning.

The App is in a bit of a weird place in terms of who might get true value out of it. Rabid fans might think it’s too simple. After all, in terms of music, it only includes 3 tracks you can stream, 3 videos you can watch, and several ‘interactive tracks’ which are basically simple art (very nice art) type games where you move stuff around with your finger or touch on an area to reveal photos, etc (not really ‘games’ as you’d expect, just things to ‘do’ while listening to about 30 seconds of a particular track looping), as well as news and a fan wall. And on the other hand, people who casually like Alice in Chains will most likely be better served by simply listening to their AIC albums instead.

Listen to three tracks from the latest Alice in Chains album as many times as you like.

Overall, the Alice in Chains App is very well put together technically–it looks gorgeous, everything works as it should (mostly anyway–it randomly crashed on me when trying to play one of the videos, but that only happened once), and overall is easy to use. For $0.99 it’s a tiny purchase and if you are an involved Alice in Chains fan and/or want to have an App dedicated to the band’s news and tour info (probably the most useful parts) and to have the ability to connect with other fans by sharing messages on the Fan Wall, then it’s definitely worth picking up.

Probably one of the coolest features, buy tickets and then connect with fellow fans for a particular concert date.

Probably one of the coolest features, buy tickets and then connect with fellow fans for a particular concert date.

I’m just not sure (even though I do like Alice in Chains) that I would unanimously recommend it. If you want to listen to the three songs, they’re all on YouTube already. You can buy their latest album for $7.99 on iTunes. You can get tour information and buy tickets with your web browser. You can connect with other fans on Facebook or Twitter or on the band’s website. But the Alice in Chains App just allows you to do that nicely all in one place–so if that’s what you’d like to do (beyond getting the ability to listen to the tracks and watch the videos whenever you want) then the Alice in Chains App is definitely worth it.

Panappticon Verdict: 89/100 — A beautifully put together App for the Alice in Chains fan. Non-fans probably won’t get much out of it, but for $0.99 it’s definitely worth checking out if you’re in love with the band.

MiniSquadron on Sale for $0.99 and Other Sale Highlights

by panappticon on November 28, 2009

in Sales

MiniSquadroniPhoneIf there’s one iPhone game you shouldn’t miss during the Thanksgiving App Store sale madness, it’s MiniSquadron. This one has been garnering a ton of forum buzz, has a perfect 5/5 star average on the iTunes Store, and after Monopoly kept crashing on me I bought MiniSquadron and it truly is a blast. Expect a review forthcoming, but it probably doesn’t need one–just go pick it up now while it’s $2 off it’s normal price and only $0.99, you’ll be glad you did.

WordWeaveriPhoneAlso, WordWeaver is a game we reviewed and really liked a lot and it is also on sale for $0.99 right now so now’s the chance to pick it up if the $1.99 pricetag scared you away previously. While it won’t necessarily win over word game haters, it’s definitely one to add to your list of word games if you do like them.

CompareMeiPhoneAnother previously reviewed App that’s also on sale is CompareMe. It’s down to only $0.99 and at that price I can’t recommend it enough if you find yourself comparison shopping and need to be able to quickly tell which different sized packaging for a product is the best deal.

WarfareIncorporatediPhoneIf you’re into RTS games, you might want to skil Command & Conquer and check out Warfare Incorporated. It’s a Game of the Year Award winner and has dropped considerably in price to $0.99 (regularly $4.99) and is definitely worth picking up if you’re an RTS game fan.

Keep in mind that these are limited time sales and can and probably will end very shortly so it’s in your best interests to grab them now before they go back to their normal prices (and while that sounds like a cheesy sales pitch, it really is the truth! The most you’ll lose it $0.99 if for some reason they drop to free).

As always, we aim to bring you the latest news, reviews, and sales of only the best the App Store has to offer. With over 100,000 Apps currently, we find the ones that are worth your time so you can spend more time with only the ones that are worth your time.

1Password and 1Password Pro are Currently FREE

in Sales

1PasswordProiPhoneHere’s a big one, especially if you’re a Mac user and have and love 1Password: 1Password [App Store Link] and 1Password Pro [App Store Link] for the iPhone/iPod Touch are now on sale for FREE until December 1st (not sure why you’d want the non-pro version since both are free, but it’s there if you do!). 1Password is regularly $4.99 and 1Password Pro is regularly $7.99, so these are huge deals. So what are you waiting for? Grab it now and enjoy one of the best password managers out there for the iPhone and if you haven’t yet, don’t miss checking out 1Password for OS X as well. Version 3.0 was just released and is definitely worth looking into if you’re one of the 15 Mac users who haven’t heard of it yet ;) I personally use it (and have been since over a year ago) and find it indispensable for keeping track of passwords and anything you need to keep secure (such as software licenses).

Dan Deadman vs. Hangman Review: Sadistic Hangman

by panappticon on November 24, 2009

in Game Reviews

Dan Deadman vs. Hangman [App Store Link] is a pretty simple classic Hangman game with a twist–instead of being drawn in a simple doodle-style (like so many games are nowadays), it instead features cartoon-style visuals that bring to life the precariousness of the soon-to-be-executed’s (maybe!) situation like never before.

Uh oh, this can't be good...

Uh oh, this can't be good...

The bottom line is it’s a hangman game with cartoon-style execution scenarios and while it’s well executed overall, I’m not sure it would be a game that would entice anyone not already interested in a hangman-style game to play it. Similar to a game like Battleship, you either want to play it or you don’t. If you do, you should check out Dan Deadman vs. Hangman because it adds enough to keep hangman as entertaining as it can be while you play.

Um....help?!

Um....help?!

Overall the graphics are great, the interface is definitely usable and clean, and the sounds are sparse but well done. If I had to complain about something I guess it would be that you don’t really know how many tries you have left until after you’ve played a couple games to figure out the order of the animations (this is a classic case of causing confusion to a player by changing the way things have always been done–somewhat akin to changing a Shopping Cart on an e-commerce site to something like a Log Raft of Goods or something equally zany). It’s not a huge deal after you play a bit, but keep it in mind the first couple times you play it.

Fail :(

Fail :(

There are currently two ‘execution scenarios’ to select from, and it would be nice if they followed Pocket God’s lead with updated content and perhaps added an extra scenario once every couple of weeks or once a month to keep it fresh–after all, this is just hangman so it would be a pretty tough sell if it didn’t have something like that. Beyond that there are various options for categories of words, the ability to select different languages, and a two player mode.

Win! It would be a really nice addition if new scenarios came out every month or so to keep people interested in the game beyond just hangman itself

Win! It would be a really nice addition if new scenarios came out every month or so to keep people interested in the game beyond just hangman itself

In the end, Dan Deadman vs. Hangman is a smartly put together hangman game with a visual twist to keep you entertained. Is it going to make you love hangman if you don’t? Not really. If you are looking for a hangman game though, it’s definitely worth a look.

Panappticon Verdict: 84/100Hangman with a visual twist and great graphics. It won’t make you fall in love with the game of hangman, but it’s definitely a worthy contender if you do want a hangman game.

Lexic [App Store Link] is one of approximately 10 million word games on the App Store where you have a grid of letters that you must form words from by dragging your finger around your iPhone’s screen. So why is it so good? Well, for one, it looks amazing. The amount of visual polish in Lexic is truly outstanding–let this be a lesson to all up and coming iPhone developers–you better get on top of your UI/graphic design or else face being blown out of the water by the likes of Kieffer Brothers. The fact that the gameplay is solid and fun and it includes a multitude of different game modes doesn’t hurt either.

The Blackout game mode in action--choose your words carefully to clear the entire board of tiles!

The Blackout game mode in action--choose your words carefully to clear the entire board of tiles!

If you’ve heard of Wurdle you already know most of what Lexic is about. There are a bunch of games that have a similar style (we reviewed one earlier called WordWeaver) but try to add their own twist to it. It’s a decent game-type that’s pretty addictive in short bursts. If you’re looking for such a game, you seriously should give Lexic a shot because again, the amount of polish is fantastic.

Even the main menu screen looks amazing.

Even the main menu screen looks amazing.

Lexic adds to Wurdle’s gameplay by having multiple game modes, unlockables, and again, it’s sheer amount of visual polish. There’s Quest mode which you progress through increasingly difficult levels, Cascade mode where the letter tiles keep coming even after you form words, Blackout mode where the object is to clear the board–however the letters vanish once you form words with them, and Stasis mode where you try to form as many words as possible with an unchanging board.

Quest mode with increasing difficulty and challenging tiles to hamper your progress!

Quest mode with increasing difficulty and challenging tiles to hamper your progress!

Each of those modes in turn has different time options so you can set up whichever game you prefer most. In addition, if you don’t like the Tournament Word List, it also features the SOWPODS word list (word game geeks know the difference, I don’t so don’t bother asking me ;) ). As you get better and better and score achievements, you get additional tile sets available to change it up visually.

Do well and earn achivements which unlock new tile sets.

Do well and earn achievements which unlock new tile sets.

This is a pretty proven type of word game and like I said earlier, it works. What makes Lexic so good is the sheer amount of variety it adds to the basic game-type and, for the 10th time, it looks visually stunning. There’s no music, which except in rare cases where it works well (I think the music and sounds in WordWeaver really add to its ambiance and work well there) is probably more of a good thing than a negative. The sounds are as well done as the visuals and really add to the gameplay and are non-irritating.

A virtual trophy case for your achivements. Global high scores also let you check out how you stand compared to other players.

A virtual trophy case for your achievements. Global high scores also let you check out how you stand compared to other players.

Overall Lexic is definitely up there among the best of this type of word game and is an easy game to recommend for anyone wanting a word game they can pick up and play for a couple minutes at a time or to get addicted to and end up playing it for hours. If you hate word games, obviously tread with caution but there are enough variations in gameplay with all the different modes to keep you entertained for a really, really long time–and for only $1.99 it’s quite a bargain.

Panappticon Verdict: 97/100A really fun word game with diverse gameplay modes, amazing graphics and polish, and a neat achievement system make Lexic one of the better word games on the App Store and a must-buy if you aren’t allergic to letters.

Doom Resurrection on SALE This Week

by panappticon on November 22, 2009

in Sales

DoomResurrectioniPhoneHere’s another big-name iPhone App on sale: Now’s your chance to get Doom Resurrection [App Store Link] for only $2.99 if you missed it the last time it was on sale a few months ago (regularly $6.99, 4/5 stars). It’s an on-raise FPS with awesome graphics, just be aware that you can’t roam freely like you can in the PC version. If you’re looking for a more classic FPS style game, you can always check out Doom Classic [App Store Link] which came out a few weeks ago and has been getting great user reviews (4.5/5 stars). It’s somewhat pricey at $6.99 though, and no telling when it will go on sale (hopefully soon though–some people think it’s overpriced and I would tend to agree especially now that Doom Resurrection is available for $2.99, hopefully Doom Classic will be too).

BeejiveIM is On Sale For Its Cheapest Price Ever

by panappticon on November 22, 2009

in Sales

BeejiveIMiPhoneThe popular multi-protocol IM App BeejiveIM is currently on sale for its cheapest price ever, $6.99 (regularly $9.99, 4/5 stars). In yesterday’s weekend update post I mentioned that Trillian ($4.99) is out for the iPhone and might be a worthy competitor, but now that BeejiveIM is down to $6.99, only a couple dollars more than Trillian (vs double the price), I’d be much more inclined to recommend BeejiveIM over it.

So if you’ve been putting off getting a paid multi-protocol IM client, now’s the time to snag BeejiveIM. Just a note–this week should see some pretty remarkable App sales so stay tuned and have a great Thanksgiving week everyone!

Weekend Update: New Apps & Worthwhile Sales

by panappticon on November 21, 2009

in News,Sales

Well, another weekend, another round of sales as well as a couple cool new Apps! Let’s get right to it!

NavigonMobileNaviPhoneNavigon’s MobileNavigator North America is on sale for $69.99 (regularly $89.99, 4/5 stars). If you’re looking for a GPS app, now is the time to grab this one. 4/5 star reviews and a ton of them mean this is a great deal for anyone looking at a GPS app.
 

BeneathASteelSkyiPhoneBeneath a Steel Sky: Remastered is on sale for $0.99 (regularly $2.99, 4/5 stars). This is a remake of the classic PC point-and-click adventure game. The sale was supposed to end already but if you’re lucky you might still be able to grab it for $0.99.
 

GroundEffectiPhoneGround Effect is on sale for $0.99 (regularly $2.99, 4/5 stars). It’s a racing game that delivers an incredible sense of speed and is quite fun. I picked it up and played it for a while, and while I don’t think it’s going to be a game I’ll be playing for hours every day, it’s probably worth the $0.99 for an occasional racing-type game.
 

EnigmoiPhoneEnigmo is on sale for $0.99 (regularly $2.99, 3.5/5 stars). Enigmo is a 3D puzzle game that’s also available for the Mac. Coincidentally, ALL of developer Pangea’s games are on sale (including Enigmo 2) for $0.99, just click here to check them all out. They’re all pretty averagely rated games but if you’ve been wanting one (or all) of them for a while, now is the time to pick them up.
 

LoopyLabiPhoneLoopy Laboratory is on sale for $0.99 (regularly $4.99, 4.5 stars). This is a puzzle ‘escape the room by constructing a circuit’ type of game. Worth a look if you’re into them.

 

GangstariPhoneGangstar: West Coast Hustle is on sale for $4.99 (regularly $6.99, 4/5 stars). This is a Grand Theft Auto-style game and has been garnering pretty strong reviews.

 

DragonPortalsiPhoneDragon Portals is on sale for $0.99 (regularly $4.99, 3.5/5 stars). This is a pretty neat ‘connect the similar items to break them away until you clear the grid’-type of game (yes, one of those!). I picked it up, play it occasionally, and find that it’s certainly worth the $0.99. At $4.99 it might be a bit hard to swallow, but at $0.99 it’s a relative bargain.
 

LuxDLXiPhoneLux DLX is on sale for $3.99 (regularly $7.99, 3.5/5 stars). This is a Risk-style board game that’s pretty popular. There are some complaints about lag, however I’ve been doing some research and most people say that there isn’t any lag anymore. There is a free version with fewer options and maps, which supposedly does not suffer from any lag. So take your chances on the paid version if you dare (I have not personally tried the paid version so cannot comment on the presence of any lag).
 

There’s something for everyone with the sales this week! Now let’s move onto some notable new releases-

TrillianiPhoneTrillian has been released ($4.99). Trillian is a pretty popular Windows multi-protocol Instant Messenger application that finally has been approved by Apple and is set to compete with the rest of them. How is it? So far the reviews on the App Store are trending positive with 4/5 stars. There are some people complaining that it is not as good as the current crop of competing IM apps (such as IM+ and BeeJiveIM, however whether or not Trillian will be updated aggressively to better compete with them is unknown at this point.
 

MonopolyMonopoly was also released ($4.99). This is the classic version of the game, unlike the Here and Now edition that has been out for some time. Supposedly the AI has been improved to well, not cheat every time with dice rolls. And, well, it’s classic monopoly! There is local Wi-Fi multiplayer, but since I don’t have anyone to play with when I’d want to play, I really wish that EA would have included true Internet multi-player. Like I mentioned in our review of Catan, I think with board games especially, being able to compete against people anywhere, anytime would be a massive improvement and a huge selling point. I’m most likely going to hold off on it until it’s updated to include online multi-player (however don’t hold me to that, as I have a soft spot for Monopoly!).
 

OrbaiPhoneFinally, Orba is a new game from Kieffer Brothers. Never heard of them you say? Well, we have an upcoming review of their word game Lexic, however we had to mention Orba because it’s on a limited time sale for…FREE. One thing about Kieffer Brothers games is the insane amount of visual polish and slickness in their games, and Orba is no exception. It may look too simple at first (and it is simple, but amazingly fun and addictive)–you select 3 or more connected colored orbs to remove them from the grid, while the orbs above them fall down into place. As you progress in levels you get more and more different colored orbs which ups the challenge significantly. This is a really nice relaxing game that you can just pick up and play anytime and I highly recommend it, especially right now since it’s free.
