Pokémon GO, anyone still playing that nowadays?

I do play it, from time to time, and today was one of those fun days when two of my Pokémon finally got their CP over 1k. Yay me, right?

It might not be that special, and I might be way slower than everyone else who played it, but I find it funny. I try to keep it casual, and not obsess about it.

Are anyone still playing this or is it a dead thing already?

Boarding the sheep train with Pokémon GO.

pokemongonewinfoSo, the other day my Galaxy S2 got a reflash and I updated to Lollipop to be able to try out this new craze everyone is talking about. While the application treats my phone as a cookie, and takes large chunks out of my battery each time I use it (or drain it all), I can sort of see why it has gotten such a liking. It’s familiar, cute and easy enough plus it makes you go out more.

At first I was worried that I would have to pay2play with all the Poké balls I am throwing away but with the PokéStops around, that’s not really an issue.

As I mention earlier, the application makes you want to go out more and explore only to find more Pokémon, hatch new eggs or to get the distance achievements among other things. It is a fun twist to otherwise boring walks to the grocery store.

Darkened dreams, I made an interactive novel!

DarkenedDreams

So, the day is finally here when I can say that I have made an interactive novel. It might not be the longest out there, but I am really proud of it.

It might take around 10 minutes to play through. If you want all the endings, it might take a little longer than that.

It is my first try at something like this so if you have any critique and/or comments about Darkened Dreams, feel free to post them in the comments below.

Lifeline, can you save his life?

So, the other day I tried this game for my android phone, Lifeline. It has a really interesting concept, keeping the player waiting as the game decides when you can play and not.

You start the game, and you will get in touch with a man. This man is on another planet, and he needs your help. The game is time-based and as you help him along, he’ll disappear for a few hours or so each time. All you can do is wait for his next message. The messages will pop up on your notification bar as he comes back.

He’ll give you choices and you will be able to tell him what to do to keep him alive and safe. I found this game rather interesting and wanted him to respond faster so I could know how it all went.

Will you be able to keep him alive?

Choice of the Vampire

This is a text game, for your phone and pad, that is really entertaining and worth to read. It’s like a book, but you are the one making the choices and choosing where the story should lead you. The game holds love, fame, infamy, wealth and so on.

The text is well written and interesting and keeps me wondering what will happen next and what choices I get to push it forward. Depending on the character you pick, your choices differ, and you can’t answer the same thing depending how you have lived your life each time you replay it.

The first part of this game is free but the second part, if you wish to continue this story, will cost. I think this is a truly unique game in the mist of all those angry birds and other less interesting games. And it’s perfect for the vampire lover out there.

Yesterday

Yesterday-Splash-Logo-01

So just finished a mobile game this time around that’s called Yesterday. A point and click game that’s actually really nice. I played this on my HTC Desire S, and the screen was a little bit too small for the interface and choices but otherwise it went really well.

Seems that the game also can be downloaded for PC on their website but that costs, but the android version that I played is free.

The game wasn’t very long but the story kept me intrigued all the way through with twists, turns and characters. It was a rather morbid game with a deep, dark feel to it.

You take control of a few characters at the beginning but then you take the mind of John Yesterday and helps him around by clicking on stuff, combining things and keeps an eye out for the tiny clues that helps you forward.

The puzzles was fun but a bit tricky at times, and I had to take advantage of the little “lightbulb” that gave me a few hints and help on how to proceed.

There are three endings to choose from and one secret ending. I took the John Yesterday ending, and it suited me the best in my opinion.

You should install it if you want something more interesting to play on your phone.
