Live in the forest mdash; is not only to breathe fresh air and alone with nature, but also expose themselves to dangerous, sometimes lethal. Jack Lambert mdash; burly bearded fellow in a knitted cap, was a regular forester until his grandmother did not fall ogromennoe tree, putting an end to a long life cousin. Now it is time to get even with a large forest, and, admittedly, revenge came quite brutal.

Jack Lumber mdash; classic arcade game for portable platforms, which need to be addressed properly by felling trees. Logs, as you know, along the Burke and sawing them across. Unfortunately, the good old laquo; Druzhbyraquo, our hero was not there, but the impressive size ax fit for the massacre of the unfortunate forest. Flies through the air a few pieces of timber to be cut before they fell. Everything is done in one go: you hold your finger an imaginary line cut. The difficulty is that the cobs soar up into the sky from many angles, and sometimes have to draw in the most complicated twists.

Most gameplay reminiscent of the well-known and popular arcade game called Fruit Ninja, but instead of juicy fruits mdash; logs. It goes from one level to the gameplay becomes more difficult with time appear L-shaped pieces, further complicating the task. But with the touch of a finger to a screen, time slows down, so there are a few seconds for the laying of the optimal trajectory of cuts.

Throughout the game will do the same, not much variety. However, difficulties have enough mdash; Jack clearly does not spare himself, cutting down a tree somewhere behind the screen, because it throws up not only the pieces of timber, and all living creatures. Despite such a disregard for the flora, fauna, the hero saves: to kill beavers, deer and other forest dwellers in any case impossible. According to the law of genre livestock crosses the easiest path, so you should instantly change the plan to complete a level and look the other way.

If many arcades timer affects only the number of stars received, everything is for real: the crow was no time to do everything as fast as possible, otherwise the subsequent restart. Though episodes and relatively small, but over some have seriously thought that is understandable mdash; Jack Lumber in the amount offset by complexity.

    Michael Jackson: The Experience

    Download Michael Jackson: The Experience of the AppStore

    Death of a famous person mdash; is not only a great loss for the world, but, unfortunately, often a reason to cash in on the fans of this person. Michael Jackson, who died three years ago at the age of fifty years, is considered the King of Pop. As usual, the demise of the legend was fanned by an aura of mystery, just under the hand got even the singer’s personal physician. Not to mention the scandals because of the carve-up of a fortune first and only laquo; white afroamerikantsaraquo;.

    Words of profit just refer to the developers of the project. The Experience is a dance game disguised as an attempt to cut down a little bit more money for the big names, the trick did not even try to hide. But first play even interesting. As part of the execution of the project will not carp. The first thing that catches your eye, mdash; fantastic for iOS and Android-device graphics. The visual part udelyvaet one left most 3D-games for smartphones. Animation is excellent, all the movements are smooth and natural, Jackson and team dance like live. Vivid special effects, colorful flash lights, stylish scene mdash; yes, it really shows. Fans especially will enjoy animated inserts clips singer.

    Alas, described beauty are perhaps the only advantage of the game. First, the control is implemented is not perfect. Of course, you can hardly make a dance on the touch screen in some other way, but the complexity and accuracy have problems. Michael Jackson’s motion is often very fast, it is not worth a moment on stage doing nothing. With the start of the song appears on the screen pointers mdash; where and at what point you have to touch or hold your fingers. Even on medium difficulty ideally do some reversals becomes very, very difficult, we have to constantly crawl fingers on the display, and all should be as accurate. The slightest deviation from the path of mdash; reception and shall not be counted, throwing combos.

    In the last

    Keeps almost all the gameplay mdash; greater factor, the higher the chance take the lead and show everyone who’s the best dancer. The situation is exacerbated when there is simultaneously a couple of different signs. One need simply hold your finger at a certain angle, and the other mdash; laquo; narisovatraquo; reversal. And all you need to do at the last moment in order to achieve the indicator Perfect. To say that it is difficult, mdash; say nothing. For a time, the game is not a joke drags, movement successfully adjusted to the music, there is a sense of what the player sets the rhythm of dance. Provide some respite fragments improvisation mdash; any pointers, the player decides how to dance.

    But the high complexity can be forgiven developers mdash; eventually, someone will consider it a plus. The main disadvantage of Michael Jackson: The Experience is in the other. Most of the tracks have to be bought separately, for a dollar apiece. Not only is the game itself is paid, so also all the content will cost a good amount, several times more than the price of the game. Of course, fans of Michael Jackson will not stop it, but for others it is an occasion to consider whether to pay for each song. On the other hand, it should be noted that the tracks are chosen well, collected almost all the major hits of the legendary singer.

    Pros:

    • great graphics and animation;
    • complex and interesting gameplay is inscribed in the selection of the best songs of Michael Jackson.

    Disadvantages:

    • many tracks need to buy separately;
    • have a complaint to management.

      Pet World 3D: My Animal Rescue

      Download Pet World 3D: My Animal Rescue from AppStore

      Primitive man was able to tame a lot of animals. Some helped him in the hunt, others mdash; in the economy, others were a source of food. But to these creatures came the real sense, not a headache for the owner, for them to constantly maintain. Since prehistoric times, little has changed, here are some zhivotinku now needs only for decorative purposes. Pet World 3D provides a visual representation of how difficult and dreary grooming pets.

      Game resembles The Sims, only with animals in the lead roles. We play quite a large veterinary clinic with a variety of enclosures. Hangs over every pupil indicator of his condition. Typically come to the hospital animals do not feel like oh well, whereas our task mdash; take care of them and bring the beasts back to normal. To do this, carry water, food and entertain hamsters, guinea pigs, cats and rabbits.

      Care process is more or less accurate, but it is linked to some problems. First, the area is big enough, and you want to keep track of each animal, and their time is a lot. Second, the necessary items are stored in the pantry, and each has its own separate little animals wound Regiment. For example, food for hamsters guinea pig for some reason refuses to have mdash; extent consistent with the reality, the author has not yet been checked. Third, the fillers are also needed special toilet for each species. At least the water is the same for all animals. To lighten the mood a mammal, periodically comb it or just pat. This is done simply: choose option laquo; raschesatraquo, and three fingers on the screen, until the scale is full. It is true that the rate does not depend, and this leads to funny thought: if the child laquo; chesatraquo, electronic pet so that the smartphone is about puffed, the mood alive cat from the enthusiasm is unlikely to rise. Still worth the developers to focus on the smoothness and accuracy of movements, otherwise the children can draw the wrong conclusions.

      One of the annoying drawbacks mdash; inventory. There is nothing superfluous, but the problem is in the number of cells. Although, perhaps, so developers want to teach the children to order. Now, the stock is too small. At a time to do bypass animals of different species, and each, of course, need a fresh vehicle, a new portion of food and so on. Therefore constantly have to go back to the store inventory and store the remaining ingredients back. Throw away food or a comb in the trash can. Since the dimensions of nursing and the adjacent area command respect, it is often necessary to fly from one corner of the map to another.

      By and large, Pet World 3D mdash; Tamagotchi is the twenty-first century. Children’s game fit perfectly: it may be, the child will think twice before you ask parents to have a pet to see how many troubles with it. The rest of the point in buying a project there, even though he and normal quality graphics. Pat the Bunny, drink hamster let the fresh air cat mdash; is fun, but only the first time, not when you have to do the same thing day after day.

      Pros:

      • good graphics;
      • Tamagotchi

      • revival in modern mobile devices;
      • reasonable price.

      Disadvantages:

      • game get bored;
      • small inventory.

        Jelly Cannon Reloaded

        Jelly Cannon Reloaded download from AppStore

        Before us mdash; another puzzle, where all the action is tied to physics. Apparently, the production of these games will never run dry, though, it would seem, to come up with something new is impossible.

        In terms of gameplay Jelly Cannon Reloaded like Angry Birds. To connect several yellow smiley in one big, you run into them or objects nearby black shells. Moving objects at low mdash; usually solution puzzles have only one. Apparently, the developers of such projects not soon realize that it is better not to hold the player on a leash and give him a free hand in passing. It is important to just see how things interact. All of these hooks, rods and equipment are placed not just mdash; only need to understand in what order and at what angle to shoot them. The complexity increases gradually appear mobile platforms, the ground at the bottom followed by a precipice, and restarts levels are frequent. By good balance, some supernatural difficulties for the average user does not arise. Yes, there will be times when you need to think badly, but frankly not expected stupor.

        Graphics

        Not delighted, but in such projects is always a secondary matter. Picture can boast the level of detail Michael Jackson: The Experience, the visuals just pleasant. Well animated emoticons and even express certain emotions.

        Main problem JCR mdash; absence of something radically new. That is the trouble many puzzles, because they are all, by and large, monotonous. We took an idea, a little bit of its finalized, painted beautiful objects, glued price tag and released in AppStore. This claim is not only to survey the project, but for all puzzles, of which a dime a dozen on smartphones. But if all the known and popular games for iOS has already passed, then pay a dollar for Jelly Cannon Reloaded is quite possible.

        Pros:

        • nice picture;
        • moderate complexity;
        • standard price.

        Disadvantages:

        • game does not stand out among the many puzzles.
