Try to find the treasure in the mystery house by solving clues and riddles

It must have been my growing up in a household that was stacked with Agatha Christie and Sherlock Holmes novels that led to my love of a genuinely good  'whodunnit' mystery. I used to love trying to figure out who the dastardly murderer was or who stole the jewels from some stately mansion. Then along came the Cluedo board game and it went to another level. The thought of Mr Mustard bludgeoning someone to death with a hammer in the kitchen still haunts me. Things changed inexorably though when fully interactive games like Myst and, later on, Syberia were unleashed onto the world. They ...  More

An addictive racing game that looks so easy to play...but isn't!

Do you know the thing that turns a good game into a great one? It's a game that looks simple enough for you to win...but isn't. All the most successful games are like that. Candy Crush Saga and Tetris as well as the Angry and Flappy Birds all come to mind. They look so darned simple that you give it a go. An hour or so later you're wondering how you haven't managed to master it yet. Another hour and you're totally addicted to it. Smack Cars is one of those games. On the face of it, what could be so difficult, you'll ask yourself? It's just a matter of switching lanes, dodging moving cars ...  More

An online game that is better than the original

Along with Go and Chess, Backgammon is reckoned to be one of the oldest games in existence. It was originally thought to have been played about 5,000 years ago and seems to have originated in what today we call Iraq - though it was then known as Mesopotamia. Equally, real-time online backgammon play was just as quick off the mark with the first internet backgammon server coming online being established in 1992. However, the online game has come a long way since those days. BackgammonAce is an exciting, fast and free game application for iOS and Android that turns the traditional board game ...  More

Do your friends think of you as a bit of a whinger? Do you look at the world as a cup half empty rather than one that is half full?

Turn your spelling skills into an exciting game

I really don't wanna appear to be some crazed grammar and spelling freak here but, I have to admit, there's little that get's my goat up more than poor spelling and grammar on the Internet. I'm sure we've all seen memes on our Facebook feed begging people to acknowledge the difference between there, their and they're. That’s just the half of it. The thing is, standards in spelling have dropped over the years - probably because of a change in scholastic emphasis and, let's face it, bad Internet habits. Many would rather play a mindless online game than spend some time online improving ...  More

Trap that Crazy Dot with strategy and mind games

There are heaps of free puzzle games available in the Google Play store. They are massively popular. But here is a new kind of puzzle game that's a little bit different from the others. Rather than playing 'join the dots,' Crazy Dot is a strategy game for Android that is more about using the art of collision to win the points and the game rather than using more complicated gameplay. However, don't get the idea that Crazy Dot is a bash n crash mindless experience. It may seem easy-to-play but this game will prove hard to master and you will need to use all your patience, concentration, ...  More

View up to date US arrest records and mugshots and keep your contacts honest

A few years ago i was running a DVD store and a couple of the more regular visitors were an American guy and his daughter. They were incredibly friendly and always ready for a chat but I always had the feeling that there was a backstory to them that I could never figure out. Then a movie was released that detailed the life of a real life mob figure who had been put into witness protection with his daughter. Within a couple of days, they were gone and I never saw them again. Now I'm not necessarily saying that my two chatty neighbors had mob connections but it would have been easy to work ...  More

The only mobile Android app that gives you everything that iMovie does ... and then gives you more

They reckon that all those movie directors like Spielberg, Lucas and Scorsese cut their teeth by making short films with their Super 8 cameras. They would get their friends to act out scenes and amaze their parents and friends at film night when they showed their editing prowess with a finished film that took them ages to make. It makes it all the more impressive when you look at an app like this one. KineMaster is a fabulously fast and responsive video-editing app for Android that gives you a virtual film-editing suite at your fingertips. It is the only app out there for Android that ...  More
