Binary Game: Games don’t come any geekier than this!

http://theportablegamer.com

The concept is based around binary mathematics; Where you have a series of 1’s and 0’s to represent larger numbers. In binary, the number furthest to the right represents 1, then 2, then 4, then 8, and so on– doubling each time. If the binary number has a 1, you add the value of that place to the number, and if it’s a 0, you skip it. This is what makes computers work. In the game, you have eight places (which run from 1 to 128) that you can switch on and off. You’re given a number between 1 and 255 (as high as eight places can calculate), and then you’re timed on how long it takes you to flip the switches on or off to get the right binary number.

iPhone Math: RPG + (Match 3) = Puzzle Quest

http://theportablegamer.com

What do you get when you combine he best parts of an old school RPG with the best parts of a Match 3 puzzle game? You’ll get an extremely frustrating, but crazy-fun game like Puzzle Quest. Puzzle Quest is a great game that originally was released on the Nintendo DS and the Sony PSP. It’s done so well on those systems, that it’s been brought over to the iPhone. I played the DS version (and really loved it), so I must say that this is a great conversion. The concept of Puzzle Quest is based around the Match 3 puzzle (think Bejeweled). All combat is handled with this puzzle system. As you match the jewels of each color, you get mana from them to cast magical spells (1 mana per jewel). You also match purple virus-looking things for extra experience points, and piles of gold coins for more money from the battle. Most importantly, you match skulls to do damage to your opponent. The magic spells are where the strengths come in. For example, a Rouge comes with a spell called Sneak Attack. It costs 5 green and 5 blue mana, and does 3 damage to your opponent without ending your turn. Those can add up! Another is the one that knights come with: Thrust.

iPhone Review: Space Bikers

http://theportablegamer.com

Here at TPG, we generally base our verdict entirely on a game’s title. The text is then generated by taking a Spanish-language review, converting it to English via Google’s translator, and then running it through Word’s auto-summarize feature for good measure before stamping our name on it. Based on that criteria, a game called Space Bikers should get a “buy it” verdict followed by a resounding ¡muy bueno! In an event that will later prove to have your wallet thanking me, and my brain committing seppuku, I was possessed to actually play a game I had been assigned to review. In doing so, I discovered exactly what it takes to make 99 cents feel like a waste of money.Space Bikers revolves around the lives of three tiny aliens who crash-land on earth and must pull together to repair their ship to return home. What follows is a tale of intrigue and suspense, tying your heartstrings in a knot before moving on to other emotional metaphors. And by that I mean it’s a 2-d platformer. Not in space; not racing.

Resistance: Retribution Review (PSP)

http://theportablegamer.com

Bend Studios, creators of such titles as Syphon Filter: Dark Mirror and Logan’s Shadow, has quite a knack for PSP development. Those last two games were critical successes, and thought by many to be the PSP games of the year for their respective year. Now, Bend has another PSP title on its hands, this time Resistance: Retribution. One of the most anticipated games of this year, I am glad to report that it leads the PSP remarkably into what perhaps will be its greatest year. In Retribution, you play as James Grayson, a British mercenary. On a mission in a Chimeran conversion center, he is forced to kill his own brother to prevent his transformation into something inhuman. Grayson consequently deserts his squad, and takes out as many conversion centers as he possibly can to avenge his brother. Some time later, he is sentenced to death for military abandonment, however the French Maquis bail him out to fight for them in the nick of time. The rest of the game focuses on Grayson’s experiences and employment under the Maquis.
