Fight the forces of evil to unlock a BRAND NEW, EXCLUSIVE song by Linkin Park!

Many years ago, the world existed in 8-bit harmony…until PixxelKorp arrived. Now technological advancement dominates, and evil reigns supreme. A mass-brainwashing campaign has taken over and is turning the world into a high-res nightmare. A rebellion is rising, and Linkin Park is calling on YOU to lead the fight against PixxelKorp.

The long anticipated massively multiplayer online game is the first official application of Linkin Park on the iPhone, iPod touch & iPad.

Created by Linkin Park and Artificial Life, Inc., Linkin Park 8-BIT REBELLION!, players embark on a rebellious adventure where they can explore the city center and 6 specific districts each featured with the distinctive style of a band member. The master goal after all is to retrieve the band’s stolen music track – Blackbirds, a BRAND NEW, UNRELEASED Linkin Park song, exclusively for the game.

Screen Saver Pro~ App Review

24 Apr

IMG_0012

We usually use screen savers for our desktop PCs or Macs but do we need a screen saver app for our iPhone or iPod Touch? I happen to come across this app called Screen Saver Pro~. It is available for 99 cents on the iTunes App Store.

IMG_0020

The app is very simple and easy to use. Once you tap on the app’s icon, it goes into screen saver mode. I figured this is useful when you are charging your iPhone or iPod Touch. To change the theme or screensaver, you just need to tap on the exclamation button located on the right.

IMG_0013

You can change the background image of the screen saver or add some music from your iPhone or iPod music library.

IMG_0021

IMG_0019

There are 24 themes to choose from in the Application. I tested some of the themes and some of my favorites are Fancy Snow, Dreams, Butterfly and Star Shower. There are a few nice themes but I have not tried them all. Each of the themes support multi-touch effects. Once you tap on each surface of your iPhone or iPod Touch, the effects begin from your area of touch. This is one beautiful app that shows you the dazzle of screen savers without burning a hole in your pocket.

You can add the beauty of the screen saver by changing the wallpapers. However, I feel the developer can let users like us add themes ourselves by making a themes editor, so that we can further customize or create our own themes.

Functionality: 4 /5
Ease of Use: 5 /5
Value for Money: 5 / 5
Type of users Catered for: Normal users
Overall: 4.5 /5

Saving Private Sheep pits pesky wolves against peace loving sheep who only want one thing; to reclaim their grazing grounds. Help the Woolen Warrior conquer the enemy territory by leading it into the secure zone. To do this, you will need just one weapon: your finger! Destroy the obstacles in the surrounding area to enable the sheep to achieve their objective, to land on land, in total safety. Increasingly complex structures and special blocks (indestructible, explosive, etc.) coming in a variety of shapes and with different actions will make your missions harder. Saving Private Sheep takes the Woolen Warrior through a progressively difficult 80 levels.
