Improved mind-teaser Zarik is now available for iPad, coming soon for Mac

14 Feb

Avallon Alliance in collaboration with Dagdargon Games announces the release of the iPad version of the puzzle game Zarik which will be available soon on the Mac App Store.

This release of a popular game includes 100 levels (40 levels more than in the iPhone version) that make gamers’ brains work hard.

Zarik is a dice puzzle where the player touches and drags the dice to move them to an outlined zone with the number of moves restricted to numbers on the dice faces.

Game rules are simple and become clear after the first level; further levels intricate gamers with new challenging obstacles, hindering rings and teleporting holes.

image

One of the advantages which may attract those interested in strategy more than in fast-track is that game designers leave gamers the chance to change the way they tackle the task.

If the wrong decision was made, it is possible to roll back a few moves.

Visual performance is worth the positive feedback with neutral background texture looking like a wooden board and game items shaped as elementary geometrical figures. Nothing will distract the user from the main task of solving the puzzle which increases its intricacy from level to level.

Pricing and Availability

Zarik HD is compatible with iPad. It requires iOS 3.0 or later. Zarik HD is available on the App Store for 1.99 USD. Zarik for Mac is coming soon.

A moon for the Sky Game Review

28 Dec

IMG_0741

I have played quite a few doodle jump games before. The first game I played on iPhone is doodle jump. The next game is mega jump. Both games are equally addictive.

However, the game I am going to talk about today is “A moon for the Sky” published by Bulky Pix. The game title is pretty interesting which actually means a moon reaching for the sky.

In the game, you play as a moon or a heart badge. You can customize the character under Profile in the game.

As you played and win more money in the game, you can even unlock new moons to use in your profile. There is the Shop where you can buy Lives or Moons using your game money.

IMG_0748

IMG_0753

The game will start by asking you the game mode you wish to play – “No limit” or “Adventure”.  In the adventure mode, you get to go pass every one stage in the game.

In the “No limit” game mode, you get to play continuously till you die. The moon avatar will die will fall off and it will be considered game over for you.

IMG_0737

When the game is over, a spiritual man will appear and shakes his head with Indian music. I consider it sometimes frustrating to see him appear each time I lose the game.

Luckily, there are some game hints that will appear at the start of the game to advise you on how you should play the game to calm you down.

IMG_0744

IMG_0738

IMG_0745

To play the game, you need to draw a line to catch the moon or your heart-shaped avatar so that it can bounce off to greater heights. The game system combines line drawing with jumping to make it interesting for the gamers. Sometimes, when you hit certain power-up bonuses, your avatar will grow bigger.

You will feel a sense of achievement when you see how high you have reached with your moon.

IMG_0743

You might think this game is an average character jumping game but the fun part is actually how you do your line drawing to make the moon jump higher. I noticed that I can draw lines are certain angles to reflect the moon to bounce higher.

In the Adventure mode, you can choose which stage you want to play by tapping on the up and down arrows. Some of the worlds are locked because you have not cleared the previous stage.

IMG_0750

IMG_0751

Overall, I feel this game is quite addictive because it allows me to see different scenery when I jump higher with my character. The additional bonuses of having to buy more lives and customize my character is a plus. You can get more game money by buying the in-app purchases known as “BulkyCoins”.

Graphics: 3.5 /5
Sound/Music: 4 / 5
Fun: 5/5
Addictiveness: 4.5 / 5
Value for money: 5 / 5
Overall:  4.5 / 5
