Galactic Heroes

Today's app of the day is Galactic Hero.


I regularly get asked to review games on this site, and unfortunately many of them just aren't that great, or are unoriginal imitations of more successful ideas. Every now and then however, a game comes along that takes a great existing genre and makes it better. Today, that game is Galactic Hero - a great turn based 'three in a row' puzzle game, crossed with an epic space saga.

For a start, this game looks, sounds and is designed flawlessly. Everything simply works, whether it be the Google Play Games integration, the simple menu systems or the easy quick settings. The graphics are fantastic and the sound is perfect for the genre! This is a high quality production!

In relation to the gameplay, this game is equally well designed. The game follows a turn based battle system, in which you can create three in a row to add points to your player, or create three in a row of then opposing players gems to remove points from their bars of …

With Halloween fast approaching, no doubt everyone is well and truly into the planning phase. For some, that surely means going out and trying to buy the most outrageous costume ever. For others iot may involve decorating the house and carving pumpkins, and for others, it means heading to the supermarket and buying outrageous amounts of candy.

Baby Drums Musical Game

Today's app of the day is Baby Drums Musical Game.

Yesterday's Droid App of the Day was 'Musical Baby Guitar Game', a great android games for young children, allowing them to interact with a variety of bright and colourful items on the screen of a mobile device as nursery rhymes and other popular children's songs play in the background. Today's app by the same developer adopts a similar style of gameplay, though in this instance substitutes the Guitar for the drums.

From the outset - it must be clear to anyone that kids will love this game. Not only does it combine bright colours and music, but it also creates the ability to make an absolute racket! Turn the noise up full and your kids will be very satisfied with the amount of noise they can create - after all, what kid does not like banging on a drum! Luckily, thanks to Baby Drums Music Game, this can take place in the comfort of a lounge room without having to buy expensive toy drum sets.

Fairy Marble Spells

Today's app of the day is Fairy Marble Spells.


There are plenty of great, addictive Android games available in Google Play that adopt the tried and tested 'three star' level progression system. Unfortunately, many of these games seem to be carbon copies of more successful predecessors - lacking in quality and originality. Luckily, Fairy Marble Spells breaks this tradition, taking all the best bits of mobile gaming experiences, but combining them with innovative, challenging and rewarding gameplay. Overall, this results in a fantastic mobile experience!
The main gameplay hook in Fairy Marble Spells is a strange one, but it is simple to get the hang of. In short, players are required to touch a sequence of marbles in the correct order in an attempt to learn spells. If you have managed to get the order correct, all the marbles will turn an emerald green colour and you will receive a rating out of three stars depending on how many touches it took.
Sounds easy enough right? The ch…
