I would say that this is the best game that I have played on my iPad so far. The graphics are just stunning and the gameplay seems almost like what we experience in a gaming arena. The user plays the role of a jet ski surfer and can take a wild ride through the number of rivers & canals, ultimately attempting to out speed the other players. The game offers plenty of challenges in the form of various obstacles, and players can perform a variety of jaw dropping stunts as well.

Air Hockey Gold

For those of you who like to stop by gaming parlours and try your hands on the popular Air Hockey machines there, you would surely have a wonderful time getting the same entertainment right on your iPad. Unlike the free air hockey games available on the Android platform, this one is much more visually soothing and the graphics are quite realistic as well. It almost feels like you are playing the actual game on a real table. The best part is that apart from playing with a computer opponent, you can also make use of the multiplayer option and compete with your friend! This game has the potential to provide fun for hours on the go. Probably that’s why it’s rated as one of the best sporting titles for iPad.

3. 10 Pin Shuffle (Bowling) Lite

10 Pin Shuffle (Bowling) Lite

With over 4 million downloads so far, 10 Pin Shuffle is easily the best bowling game on the iOS platform. Boasting enhanced high detail graphics and an impressive gameplay with shiny chrome weights, shadows and reflections, this game almost makes players get hooked onto it and believe me, once that happens, you’ll find it difficult to stop playing it! Also one of the USP’s of this game is its simplicity as all you need to do in order to get the ball rolling is just pick up the ball and flick it. Various animation rewards, sound effects and crowd reactions are also something that make this game worth playing.

4. Hit Tennis 2

Hit-Tennis 2

Probably one of the most popular games on the iTunes market with over 13 million downloads, Hit Tennis 2 certainly packs a punch when it comes to providing hours of fun on the go. The game lets you use your fingers to hit the ball just like you do in real tennis by swiping across the screen to swing the racket. As a player, you can move up in the tennis circuit in the game from Club to Pro by defeating the various computer opponents. The best part is that you can even play it with your friends thanks to the 2 player split-screen mode!

5. Hungry Shark – Part 1 HD

Hungry Shark Part 1 HD

A rather gory yet exciting game where you get to control a shark in the Antarctic and have the goal of satisfying its appetite by feeding it with fishes and humans, ultimately helping it become the most formidable predator of the seas. This game is undeniably addictive and simple to play yet it requires quick thinking and action on the part of the player. This is one of the few games that I continually play and the excitement almost never seems to go away! You can literally play this game for hours without ever getting bored. There are also various achievements that can be unlocked by completing 10+ challenges. And when you think you’ve had enough of it, you can download some of the other parts of this game which are equally thrilling and have loads of fun to offer!

If you are planning to buy a New Tablet PC in near future and would like to use it for some gaming then Gamestop has something just for you.

gamespot tablets

Gamestop has rolled out Acer Iconia Tab A100, Asus Eee Pad Transformer and the Samsung Galaxy Tab in 200 of their stores across USA which comes bundled with Kongregate’s Arcade app store that offers 7 free high quality games including titles like Dead Space, Madden and Sonic CD.

This is a part of their experiment, if they get good response from people; they are going to release more tablets in 2012.

You must be wondering, when there are so many games available on Android Market, why should I buy a New Tablet from these guys. Well, definitely, there are several games available on Android Market and few of them are HD also, but these games are truly developed for some serious gaming action.

It is possible that this is released to compete with Tablets released by Sony. Sony’s tablets come loaded with PlayStation app on which you can enjoy some high quality games.

The tablets offered by Gamestop are priced somewhat close to what you would usually pay. Acer Iconia Tab 8GB would be offered at $330, ASUS Eee Pad Transformer at $400 and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 (or 750) at $500. They are also going to bundle a Bluetooth gamepad with all these tablets for a better gaming experience.

According to me, if you think you might use a Tablet for gaming, you shouldn’t miss this deal.

Connect two or more Power Supply Units with Add2PSU

Many a times, when you want to build a gaming PC, one of the most important things that you would need is the power supply unit. Without one, it’s really hard to run all those super powerful graphic cards and coolers and hard drives and all the things that you’ve cramped in to the computer.So, if you end up buying the wrong power supply, which doesn’t manage to power all those basic components, then that means you need more power. Now, you’d be certainly disappointed and would want to buy a new psu. Don’t!!

This is something really amazing, and not many people know about this, well, at least I didn’t until recently. Don’t sell your PSU, instead you can use your old one or buy something cheaper and connect them to create a dual power supply unit. Yup, that’s right, actually you can even connect three if you have a cabinet that’s big enough. How exactly do you do this?

Okay, first of all, you’ll need to make sure that your computer case can accommodate dual power supply units. To make this happen, you’ll need to get a dual psu adapter. Add2PSU is one such mainstream company that makes dual psu adapters and sells them to you or directly to manufactures, they’re really durable and work great. You can even connect three or more power supplies at one go and get the best out of them all. That’s what gamers do don’t they? Get the best juice out of anything and everything. You can check out the video of how this actually works and how to get it right after the break.

Hope this helps you out, when it comes to power supply woes. Check out Add2PSU. It will cost you about $44 with international shipping, which I don’t think is bad at all.

3 Best Angry Birds Look-Alike Games You Should Definitely Play

Who can deny the popularity of Angry Birds and the addiction it brings along with it. I believe that if you haven’t played Angry Birds then you haven’t experience the gaming pleasure. Since the day I started playing Angry Birds I fell in love with catapulting games that employ simple physics.

If you happen to be a lover of action-packed games then I guess you won’t be fascinated with the list of games that I have compiled for you guys today. But if you like slinging items to destroy enemies across a river or a field then do read on! Because the web-games that I have lined-up today will definitely rejuvenate the Angry Birds experience.

Ninja Dogs

First up is the Ninja Dogs game, I found this game highly addictive and it is being played almost 600,000 times and is rated as a 5 star game on developers website. The goal is pretty simple, get the Ninja Dog Master free by launching dogs via canon targeting the cats. You will find a lot of resemblance between Ninja Dogs and Angry birds primarily because of the cartoon style characters. The animated dog characters are very much like birds in Angry Birds, huge bodies with tiny heads.

Siege Master

Developed by Armor games, in this title you are in the possession of multitude of siege weapons and the goal is to conquer the kingdom. The game is based-on simple physics rules, you have to employ your weaponry like catapult to abolish your medieval times enemy. Fond of destructing structures, then you should give Siege Master a try.

Sieger

This one is pretty special and I think you will find it more interesting and intriguing then Angry Birds. In this particular game you don’t have to shoot side-wise, rather it is very much like a FPS game in which the players shoots directly at the target. You have to hit the characters bearing an exclamation mark to keep your siege. Ammo is limited and you can’t hit your own troops, so you have to finish off the enemy with the limited resources. Sieger is a very interesting game with an addictive gameplay.

Do play these games and give us your Feedback that whether they were good then Angry Birds or not.

3 Fun iPad Games You will Definitely Love

I always grade iPad as a gadget that apart from being a useful tech is also a very useful tool to kill time. Keeping this aspect of iPad in view, today I will be lining up 3 cool gaming gems for your iPad that will let you have a fun time while lying on your couch. Have a look at these gaming gems after a break!

Shoot To Kill

Shoot to Kill

 First up is the Shoot To Kill(Free as Hell), it is basically a point-to-click shooting game that allow players to shoot wildly at demons that attack from all sides. Though there is no technique involved and difficulty factor is also not that high. But it surely is an amusement package giving trigger happy gamers a real treat for sometime.

Roads of Rome HD

Roads of Rome HD

This game can be classified as a strategy game with a very different touch to it. The game has various levels and each level has a different task, you have to complete the challenge in a certain time slot to advance to next levels. Players basically have to build a road ordered by Caesar and in the course of buildings you have to complete tasks like building different structures or even harvesting materials. The game will start with a slow pace but as you keep on advancing the game will pick up its pace from level 3. The demo version of the game has only 5 levels, meaning you have to purchase the full version of Roads of Rome app ($2.99) to play more levels.

Pee Pee Boy

Pee Pee Boy

As the name suggests, this game is truly one of its kind having a bizarre touch to it. You must be thinking that I am joking but guys this is a game for real. In Pee Pee Boy you have to help a boy pee without letting him get it down on himself or avoiding the spill when the toilet seat slams shut. I found this game to be really amusing and the graphics are cool aswell.

Well that’s all for it this time, try out these games in your leisure time and I can bet you will love them.

Tired of Angry Birds? Try Angry Anna with Anna Hazare

Angry Birds stormed the internet, mobile devices, laptops and everywhere possible. It’s download numbers have gone well above the sky and are still climbing as it’s one of the most fun games available for a mobile device. Let’s move away from the ever treacherous angry birds and those pigs for a while and talk about what’s happening over here in India.

The anti-corruption movement is what’s happening over here, lead by Mr. Anna Hazare and his millions of followers. Now if you’re not so active and want to support him by having a go at the corrupt politicians, then here’s what you should do. If you love swinging angry birds at pigs, monkeys and other big birds, then it’s pretty obvious you love flinging things at things.

Some crazy yet awesome developer(s) called Geekmentor decided to add some fun to this whole Anti-corruption movement of Anna Hazare and the Indians. The idea is to throw Mr.Anna and some followers at certain corrupt politicians that very closely resemble Manmohan Singh and P.Chidambaram, yes exactly like Angry Birds.

It’s quite fun and funny, but then it’s not as good as Angry Birds. You should only play this if you really have nothing to do and are really lazy to go out and support Anna. There aren’t many levels either, just 5 of them and it’s no app, it’s a web app, flash probably.

The game is accurately named as Angry Anna and has funny noises and things that’ll make you complete those 5 small levels. Not much work has been put in to the making of this, but whatever, it’s worth 10 minutes of your time.

Go play Angry Anna right away at angryanna.com.

Top 3 Mobile HTML5-based Games For Your Smartphone

HTML5 has indeed made quite a mark on the mobile world, developers are increasingly using this platform to create and develop some real mind blowing games and applications for smartphones and tablet devices. I will review 3 amazing HTML5 games that are very much compatible with an iPhone or anyother smartphone having an HTML5 compatible browser.

A tip for iPhone users, if you want to play these HTML5 games on full screen then all you have to do is hit Safari browser middle button and choose the option Add to Homescreen and you will see the entire game on a full-screen mode. Have a brief look on these games after a break!

Nano Tanks

nano tanks

Ever played or heard about Pocket tanks, if yes then Nano Tank is another gaming gem that you will adore. Basically it’s a 2D shooting game in which you take out your enemies while avoiding incoming fire and obstacles. You will find it a bit difficult to play in iPhone’s Safari environment, so I will suggest you to convert to full screen mode. Nano Tanks employs real-time combat skills with highly responsive controls, you have to set your angle to take a perfect shot but you can maneuver you tank as well.

 

Lazors

lazors

Simple yet interesting, I found Lazors to be a very interesting game with some really challenging levels. There are a total of 30 levels and in each level you will find tangled lasers that are shown in red and Orange color. All you have to do is untangled the laser and once you are done the laser will change its color to green. Once you untangle all the lasers the level will be complete and you can proceed to next level having a higher difficulty level. You will require skills to complete higher levels in Lazors because gameplay will start getting difficult.

Spy Chase

spy chase

Lastly I am including Spy Chase which is basically a racing game with a touch of the past. You have to avoid cars, collect power increasing goodies and avoid obstacles while racing with your targets. You will go faster if you will collect more power-ups and eventually you can catch your rivals quickly. Shooting is by default so all you need to worry about is dashing your car around the track and reach finish line. Spy Chase can be downloaded from developer’s official website.

I tried out all of these games and simply loved them, I recommend that you should definitely give a try to these games and I can bet you will love the gameplay.

3 Free iPhone Games You Should Play For The Weekend

No matter what genre players prefer, there’s a free app in the App Store that will hit the spot.  And with so many fantastic free games just waiting to be played, why would players confine themselves to one genre anyway?  Variety is the spice of life, and it’s also a great way to spice up an iPhone’s game folder.  Check out this list of the very best of the best free iPhone games to find one that’s just right—or try them all out.

Fruit Ninja Lite

Fruit Ninja Lite gives players a chance to test their speed and concentration in a very unusual dojo.  This casual but addictive game has the ninja trainee slashing fresh fruits in mid-air.  As the lite version of a paid app, Fruit Ninja Lite’s features are limited.  But there’s something ever so satisfying about slicing a flying ripe watermelon in half before it hits the ground, and players will be kicking themselves if they pass this fun little free game up.

Goal Battle

Not all free games are just limited previews, though.  Thankfully, some developers have gone all out on their free offerings, and Goal Battle is an excellent iPhone soccer game.  Tight focus, fantastic 3D animation, and gorgeous game play complement Goal Battle’s central attraction: online multiplayer mode.  Players pit their personalized characters against other online players, in a one-on-one goal-kick scoring battle to prove who has what it takes.  It’s a game artfully designed to unlease every player’s competitive side.  Leaderboards track whose scoring abilities are ruling the field, but these are secondary to the heady rush of competing against another player in real time, goal for goal.  Watching one’s opponents progress makes perfecting goal kicking skills that much more enjoyable.  And to really make an impression, players customize their characters to best express themselves or their team spirit.

MyPet CUBY

Looking for a complete change of pace?  My Pet Cuby is a virtual pet that goes about his adorable day in players’ iPhones.  It’s a lot like other virtual pet game options—players keep Cuby’s happiness meter up with pets on the head, games of ball, and of course, by giving him his favorite delicious snacks. But Cuby has a few tricks that are all his own, too.  Players are rewarded for keeping their little pal happy when Cuby demonstrates delightful tricks.  He can sing and play guitar, and horse around with a paper airplane.  And keeping Cuby 100% happy means in-game rewards, like new outfits and environments for the little guy.

This is only a small selection of the free games available in the App Store.  Players can round out their game selection with RPGs, first-person shooters, farming simulations, and practically any other type of game they can think of.  Three of the best are profiled here, but don’t stop there!  Players should get the most from their iPhone gaming experience not by finding the perfect game, but by finding five… or ten… or twenty games that they can’t put down!
