We here at Akroview try to be diverse in the games that we play, it can be boring being tied down to a specific genre. So I decided to hunt down some games that don’t really fit in with the usual norm that is the current landscape, and I stumbled upon possibly one of the most beautiful rhythm games that I have played so far, Deemo!

Deemo is a very simple game but with a very complex story, I’m still not 100% in it but this is what I’ve gathered so far. Deemo is a slendermanesque figure who is destined to a life of solitude and loneliness, with his only companion being an old piano to which he makes the most beautiful music! Then all of a sudden, a young girl falls from the sky beside Deemo, not knowing what to do with this new-found companion. He decides to help the girl get back to wherever she came from. Whenever the piano is played a tree starts to grow from the top of it, and by playing songs on the piano maybe he can send the girl back home! (more…)

Never in a million years would I have thought a lone bird could cause so much anger and stress in my life! Usually they say it’s good luck when a bird drops a care package on you but in the case of Flappy Birds it’s nothing but pain and sorrow! But God is it addictive!

The folks at GEARS studio have really brought out a gem here, and usually I tend to stay away from all these mainstream games on mobile devices. I realise that makes me sound like a video game Hipster but I assure you I’m not. I just don’t see the satisfaction in anything that has “Saga” in the title. But right now it seems that the internet has focused all it’s attention on Flappy Bird!

Which could verify the point that the bird, is in fact, the word!

All bad jokes aside Flappy Bird is an unbelievably simple and fun side scrolling app that imitates the classic playstyle of Chopper, in which I mean tapping the screen to cause a sudden spasm of lift in our little flapping friend.

Our main objective is to guide this little critter through an endless wave of Super Mario tunnels! But this is much easier said than done! The slightest tap could send you bashing into the side or tip of said tunnels and cause you to crash into the ground with a strangely satisfying thud!

Overall it’s not a bad game, it’s fun and addictive and requires little or no battery power which means you can play for hours on end! The only bad thing I have to say for Flappy Bird is it’s sound, by God it is awful! High pitched and truly irritating, I basically have to play this game on mute to stop my eardrums from bursting!

Flappy Bird is available now on the Play Store and is FREE! So give it a go and let us know on out Facebook page what your highest score was. Currently ours stands at a mere 13!

Who knew that running the Death Star was so tough. No wonder Darth Vader was trying to lure Luke over to the Dark Side, he wasn’t trying to rule the galaxy he was just trying to spread the workload of the Mos Espa bar.

TDS is essentially a business building game set in a universe far far away. Emperor Palpatine has come to realise that the Dark Side isnt earning enough revenue to keep the garrison running, so he enlists Darth Vader to turn the Death Star into a thriving residential area, complete with recreational floors, bars and lounge areas.

We here at Akroview love zombies and all things horror so it was no surprise that we saw this and thought “yup this could be worthy to grace our sd card!”

But what first seemed to be a dull endless running game turned out to be much more addictive, or should we say infectious, then we could have ever thought. (more…)

Smart phones at the ready!

We all remember the craze that swept the iPhones of the majority of country last year, such a simple concept but with such an amazing response. You run…that’s basically it. I could almost imagine developers such as EPIC and Activision looking at workers on their breaks playing this game and thinking to themselves” How is this so addicting?!!” and to be honest I don’t know either, but it is!

The story alone is so simple, oh shit I robbed an artefact and now I’m being chased by some really pissed off monkey demons I better run! I know I’m dumbing it down and that there could be a true meaning behind what’s going on, but sadly I have not seen it…you just run!

But then it came to android and now I finally got a chance to play the elusive Temple Run, and against all odds…I didn’t like it. Now calm down I’m entitled to my opinion too, I didn’t see why people got so worked up over it, I guess it was the competition side of things that made it so popular, still didn’t work for me. But then I found out that there were a couple more games out there that took inspiration from Temple run but made it entirely different, here are just 5 of the games I found. (more…)
