Tesla Toy - Coil Wars

Today's app of the day is Tesla Toy - Coil Wars

It is a well known fact that that the Android gaming scene is full of a lot of good ideas, but an even larger number of replicas - games that take an idea and then try to 'get rich quick' without any original thought. It is therefore alway nice when a brand new game comes along with unique and intuitive game play that I have not experienced before. Today, that game is Tesla Toy - Coil Wars.

As with all great mobile games, the gameplay and rules of the game are simple, but the execution is fantastic. In Coil Wars, the object it to touch your glowing sphere and fully charge it before a beam of energy hits it. Once fully charged you keep your finger held down on then beam and absorb between 1 and 10 'teslas' of energy. If you hold on for too long, and try to go past 10, you will overcharge and loose a life - so it becomes a choice of risk verses reward. As the rounds pass the game will increase in difficulty, causing there to be more and more spheres to 'protect' on the screen at a single time. Trust me - this will really test your nerve power and your reflexes.  Each round has 5 lives - lose 5 lives and not surprisingly, the game is over.

Watch the video above if you are still unsure and it will be self explanatory. Luckily, on top of the great gameplay, Tesla Toy - Coil Wars is backed up by excellent sound and really amazing graphics. On my Galaxy Note 8 tablet, the colours and the beams of energy really popped off the screen - this is a well designed and very professionally put together game.

On top of the great single player campaign, the game also features a multiplayer mode. You will have to buy it through the play store (with a link accessible in the game itself), but once you do you will be able to compete simultaneously against up to four of your friends. This is a fantastic feature, I cant not recommend forking out the few dollars enough as you really will have a blast.

All in all, this is truly a great Android game - check it out today.

In the words of the developer:

***** Tesla Toy - Coil Wars is a touch of madness.
Tesla Toy - Coil Wars is a free, fast paced dexterity game for up to 4 people.
Tesla Toy – Coil Wars is a simple, yet frantic dexterity arcade game for 1-4 people.
The goal is Tesla Toy is to capture as much Tesla energy in your sphere as you can each time a bolt of energy is shot out from the Tesla Coil.

- Hold your finger on the sphere or spheres in multi-sphere play.
- You must have your sphere fully lit and charged BEFORE the energy touches any part of the sphere!
- With your Sphere lit, you can capture 1 to 10 points of Tesla Energy from the energy bolt.
- Capturing 10 points of energy scores the most points but comes with the greatest risk!
- Don't try to capture more than 10 amps of power. If you overcharge the sphere, you LOSE a life!
- You get 5 lives. Run out of lives and the game is over.
- If you try to take more than 10 points of energy your sphere will overload. Make sure you take your finger off the sphere before taking more than 10 points of energy or you will LOSE A LIFE.
- If you do not capture at least 1 point of energy, you will LOSE A LIFE.
- The amount of energy you have captured will count up from 1 to 10 so you know how much you are taking.

- BE CAREFUL! Spheres fill with energy quickly. It is better to take fewer points and survive than try to take 10 points each time and overload your sphere.
- The energy bolts will get faster each level 

- When playing 2, 3 or 4 finger, accidently lighting the wrong sphere momentarily is ok. Just make sure the correct sphere activated and charged before the energy bolt reaches it

Unfortunately, sometimes the sheer breadth of products available (everything on earth!) makes it difficult to impulse buy or get the same experience one haves when wandering around a shop or past windows.

Cosmic Cow

Today's app of the day is Cosmic Cow.

"Endless" games are very in vogue at the moment, whether it be endless running, endless jumping or endless flapping, there are plenty of ways to get unlimited, and challenging gaming fixes. That doesn't mean that there aren't great new games being created in the genre, with Cosmic Cow being one such example.

In essence, Cosmic Cow combines two great styles of game play, one being a side scrolling endless-type game, and the other being the classic side scrolling space ship shooter, popularised in numerous incarnations on 8 and 16 bit consoles of decades past. As a "cosmic cow" (can't help but love it!), the player has to navigate through space, shooting or dodging asteroids and other attacking spaceships. The cow can collect a variety of objects to earn points - though mainly interesting foods that just happen to be floating through space. As points are accumulated, the player can also collect coins to spend on a v…
