Shooty Skies - Arcade Flyer - App Review

Shooty Skies - Arcade Flyer for Apple iOS and Android is actually a clone that stretches all the way back to the 80’s arcade classic, 1943 The Battle of Midway, which in turn was based on historical events of World War II. The game is heavy on pixels and boasts some modest replay fun. (cont'd)
 Official App Store Links: Apple iOS | Android

Shooty Skies - Arcade Flyer plays in portrait, and like the arcade original, you’re tasked with taking to the skies and blasting the crap outta anything that moves. The graphics look like someone popped acid then went for broke with both guns a-blazing. You’re flying atop unicorns that poop rainbows and an array of kooky enemies that hurl game controllers, sickles and anything that isn’t bolted down in this pixel paradise. This is what it looks like if Fruit Loops and Rainbow Bright have a love child inspired by Picasso.

The action is non-stop, er, well, until a projectile connects with ye ol’ magic unicorn, then it’s toast city. The animation certainly has plenty to render and moves at a good clip. Each time you bite it, you’re offered the chance to resume from whence you left off for the cost of a few meager gold pixel coins, which will cost you real coins outta your own pocket, or credit card, as the case may be. Or you could watch a video and earn some coins on the cheap. Either way, you’re gonna be hitting that replay button often and hurling expletives at your screen like a crazy homeless person muttering incoherently with an imaginary friend.  

Shooty Skies - Arcade Flyer is one of those time killers you’ll play while waiting in line, sitting in a doctor’s office on alone in your room on a Saturday night. It’s good fun and I love its arcade roots and over the top eye candy visuals; it’s nummy-nummy.

Bubble Genius - App Review

Bubble Genius app for Apple iOS and Android is a clone of the hugely successful app, Panda Pop. The objective of the game is to shoot colored bubbles into a puzzle comprised of... yup, you guessed it, more bubbles. The play is fun and energetic and suitable for players of all ages and skill levels.(continued)
 Official App Store Links: Apple iOS | Android

Bubble Genius isn't forging any new ground here, but what it does do rather well, is entertain. You see, there's this gal named Penny, and she's got all sorts of kooky contraptions. I was actually wondering if she was named after Penny from the Big Bang Theory, seeing as they're all geniuses that we know and love. Yes, I know Penny from the TV show isn't one of the geniuses, but that's usually how this stuff works when borrowing from popular franchises, but I digress.

Back to Bubble Genius, the game is played in portrait and there's a collection of bubbles at the top of your screen, traveling upwards off screen. Below that, stands Penny and her trusty robot... cat? Dog? R2-D2, George Jetson, something or other. Anyways, your mission, is to launch bubbles from Penny’s remote controlled bubble shooter and try to hit matching bubbles in the puzzle above. If you make contact with 2 or more matching bubbles, they all burst and disappear. The bubbles are arranged in clusters, and if you strategize and aim high, you can get big clusters of them to drop and burst in a huge chain reaction. Remember, always aim high.

You get 2 balls in a rotating carousel, and can select which of the two you’d like to shoot. Then of course, there’s special power-ups, explosive bubbles and a whole boat load of special effects that make bubbles go pop. The graphics are very cool and the animation is entertaining. If you keep an eye on Penny, she does all sorts of goofy things. Oh, and there’s fuzzy monsters trapped in some of the bubbles, and you gotta pop all the surrounding bubbles to free them. Like I said, it’s a lot like Panda Pop.

Bubble Genius is lively, lighthearted and certainly entertaining. This is one of those apps that you can keep on your phone and come back to it whenever you have some time to kill. It’s lots of fun, and totally better than popping those plastic bubble wraps that come in shipping boxes.
