SWORD OF FARGOAL – REVIEW (8/10)

An excellent retro remake of a classic dungeon crawl by Fargoal, LLC

This is a wonderful retro game where you create your adventure and descend down though the levels of a dungeon in search of a magic sword.

The graphics and sound are simple, but functional. There are few options to be seen, but they are not really needed.

I have lost several hours of my life to this game, as once you start playing, then you want to continue. It can be very addictive, few to go that little deeper into the dungeon.

When playing the game you need to take things slowly, it is very easy to rush into the deeper dungeons, but you will soon find yourself out-classed and dying, so it is better to explore the early levels fully and get levelled and equipped for the deeper levels.

Overall, this is an excellent game, and I can well recommend it, but the price is a little too high for my liking, especially on the HD iPad version.

FRAGILE THINGS (AUDIO BOOK) – REVIEW (8.5/10)

A series of short stories by Neil Gaiman.

The collection that has been put together here is really very good.

There are some “fillers” in the list, but it general this is A list stuff, and all well read by Neil.

Particular favorites and worth the asking price in my opinion are as follows:
a) A Study in Emerald (a classic turnaround on a Sherlock Holmes story)
b) Sunbird (everything has to be tasted.)
c) The Monarch of the Glen (an American god spin off.)

Rating: 8.5/10

Price (at time of review):
Unabridged: £8.95

CYBROSIS – REVIEW (7/10)

A cyber tech thriller from the pen of P.C. Haring.

The story is very cyberpunk in style and tells the tale of a woman with an almost total cyborg replacement body being infected by a virus, and her epic battle to solve the case she is working on, while the virus takes hold.

Overall, it is a good solid story and well produced.

ZOMBIE SMASH – REVIEW (8.5/10)

Zombie Smash is a very simple game, but great fun in small doses.

You have to protect a house from a hoard of oncoming zombies, using your finger to throw or smash the smaller zombies, or use several weapon crates that drop from the sky to unleash several different weapons.

When zombies as destroyed they drop stars that can be collected to upgrade the weapons.

They are several different types of zombies, some slow, some fast and then those that are too large to throw.

The game does build you up slowly and tries to give each level a bit of variety.

On the whole this is a great pickup and play game, and I have still returned to it several time over the last month.

Rating: 8.5/10
