Carcophony or “Sim-Traffic Light”, you decide!

Thursday, December 31st, 2009

In the world of sims there has been one oft neglected subject to build a sim game on.  Not Sim-Laundry, or Sim-Moonwalk, or Sim-Pencil Sharpener.  It’s traffic lights!  That’s right, if ever a subject needed a simulation it would be traffic lights!  So now we have our next banner drawing entrant glpeas with Carcophony!  Now you too can be your own traffic-light tycoon.  Guide cars to their destinations with traffic lights.  Would you like to learn more?  Then read on after the video!


Merry Christmas everybody!

Things have been slowing down here for the last few days and will probably be so until next week because of Christmas. Even though things have slowed down a bit if you like what I’m doing, please as a Christmas present to me, spend more time on the site reading reviews and what not, perhaps if you use stumble upon or digg or reddit, please thumb up, or digg or upvote any of my reviews. Thanks to those who usually read.

Merry Christmas!

Anirah – Riddle of the Pharaohs (with no riddles or Pharaohs)

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2009

Anirah, Riddle of the Pharaohs by Lost Luggage Studios is supposed to be an Egyptian-themed tile matching game similar to Mahjongg.  Okay seriously, there’s no real Egyptian theming to the game.  You can select a skin though that is somewhat, but by default, it’s just, well, default.  It’s not a match-3 game at all, but it is similar to Mahjongg.  Did I like it?  About as much as I do Mahjongg.  Essentially I like playing Mahjongg but it’s never my first choice.  I usually end up getting sucked into multiple games if I start one, and that’s sort of how this game is.  Here’s a brief video to show you how to play, and if you’re still confused, I will help clear it up with the rest of the review.
