First, I’d like to thank everyone who read Jasmine Ross the Rebel’s tale of being the sixth member of The Breakfast Club. For those of you unaware, which is probably a lot of you, The Breakfast Club Jasmine’s adventures took place in was an interactive story adaptation of the classic 80s movie called Series which, unfortunately, isn’t available anymore. In the movie, which I’m sure many of you have seen, five high school stereotypes spend a Saturday in detention and, throughout the movie, learn to get to know that each one is more than the label placed on them. The first time I saw the movie was after it got mentioned in a Heroes comic story. The second time was when I downloaded this game and played this story. My friend, bloodrosered who also requested this, wrote her own fanfic from it called Beauty and the Brain.Read More »
A/N: I usually post reviews on Fridays, but I was really excited about ending the movie part of The Breakfast Club before getting to what happened after. I also wanted to announce that Jasmine Ross now has her own TUMBLR account here! Be sure to follow her and ask her any questions you want!
The beloved digital pet from the 90s is back and it’s on your phone. Take care of the little alien and make sure to keep it alive.
Even if you didn’t have a tamagotchi in the 90s, you probably had an equivalent. When I was a kid, I had two giga pets, a cat and a T-Rex. They never lived very long because I had to go to school and I couldn’t take the toys with me. There’s really not much of a plot to these things except an alien came to earth and you have to raise it. However, I will say one thing. While Tamagotchi’s popularity skyrocketed in Japan, it fell out of favor in the U.S. I don’t know if they brought these things to the iPhone to bring back its popularity or to give nostalgic adults like me a taste of their childhood.
The game play is the same as it was on the toy. You press the correct button to meet your Tamagotchi’s needs. If you don’t tend to the creature, it will die. You can pick which Tamagotchi you want between Generation 1 and Generation 2. As you play, you can unlock various wallpaper and shell designs. You also have two choices to play the app. You can play it as an actual app, by pressing the correct icon, or, if you’re feeling really nostalgic, play it in shell mode. In other words, tap the left button until you get to the icon you want and tap the confirm button to select it.
This game is not deep yet addictive. I give it 6 out of 10; you get attached to the Tamagotchi after a while.
The very first video game ever created has found its way on your iPhone. Bounce a ball around with paddles in this 2d tennis court.
I got this game because I saw a few screenshots of it on That 70s Show and wanted to see if it’s any fun. Despite the simple concept, I’d have to say that it is. Sometimes it’s nice to play a game where you can turn your brain off. My only problem is that you can’t make the paddles smaller if you’re way too good at the game.
This game is simplistic and addictive. I give it 7 out of 10; the perfect game to play when you’re drinking.
