The game is called Street Heroes not so long ago stormed the vastness of the App Store and Google Play, and has managed to acquire an impressive player base. It is not surprising, because the developers essentially connected so loved by many old and modern fighting games have implemented them in the same game with fancy graphics, storyline and so on.

The characters and simple: attack up on the top right of the screen, two taps at the same time — receiving unit, and the accumulation of rage appear best kicks that you want to select in the lower left part of the screen.
Each player has its own team of heroes with which he is the head of the game, while characters from time to time may change — for example, if to join the team defeated the fighters out cards to new members. A very important role in Street plays Heroes tactics: if the time to choose a character and give it to store energy, which is necessary for the crown beats, you can make your team practically invincible. In addition, the characters behave differently to each other, and some characters, for example, give bonuses when used with other.
Characters can be improved and pump to not only successfully pass the chapters of the game, but not to be a weakling in the tournament — the last open at once, you will need to gain experience to unlock it. In between battles, and the character to improve, and diamonds to spend to restore power and open the card with a new character.
Separately want to mention graphics in the game look cool, not only the arena and the players, but the animations of punches, blocks and special moves during battle. In addition, the game completely Russified, including the Russian voice is present. To play really not only interesting, but nice, have to give credit to the developers.

Lately in the App Store and Google Play there are more games that are absolutely meaningless and endless. These games are not endowed with a plot or some kind of extreme coaching mindset idea. They are created only in order to waste your time, but even these games are getting better and more interesting. Game SpaceTapTap is one of the best representatives of their genre.
The first thing that conquers in SpaceTapTap is the lack of 8-bit graphics, which is so often used in time-killers. The second advantage of the product is quite an original idea.
You have to fly up on a rocket. On the way the spacecraft will come across a variety of the body. You can smash them about the ship and finish the game, and can fly through their orbit, changing the direction of flight. Task – to fly as far as possible.
To fly far away from the bodies will not leave. They will try to destroy your ship, and to fly far enough, you will have to actively tap on the screen.
Of course, the game has diamonds of different ship models that you can buy for the money, and advertising. In this kind of games without it anywhere…

Indie games not everyone likes. At the mention of such projects in the imagination is often a picture of some cheap crafts, with a sad, dramatic story and the primitive pixel graphics. However, among such creativity often come across games that resonate in the hearts of the General public. For example, a project in the genre of adventure “To the Moon”, which developers have recently moved to mobile platforms iOS and Android.
The game’s plot is pretty interesting. In the future scientists learned how to rewrite the memory of people. One application of this discovery was the ability to edit memories of a single person so that he, contrary to the real situation, believed that he lived his life happily, realizing all their dreams. Due to the fact that such interference in the depths of consciousness turned out to be a costly procedure, it is usually were ordered just before his death. This gave the opportunity to the person, at least at the end of his existence, to feel that he had a great life and managed to embody in a reality all their dreams and desires.
We see the main character – a man who is at death, which is surrounded by those same scientists. They are ready to start the editing process memory, because thrown with him a few words, and trigger mechanism for the replacement of memories. Character is decades younger, and all drop-down possibilities in his life get a new chance for implementation. Old man with a childhood dream to visit the moon and, thanks to this journey into his past is to rewrite it anew, to live it the way he wanted it.
So, the player will be with the main character to participate in the most memorable events of his life — will be able to trace the path of the character from the cradle to old age. Along with the main character he will witness the simple joys and sorrows, have lots of light moments and can observe of the successes and failures of an ordinary man. Sounds maybe boring, but in fact project To the Moon surprises with its special spiritual mood, which rarely is found among the products of the gaming industry.
Their offspring, the developers belong to the genre of JRPG (Japanese Role-Playing Game Japanese role-playing game). However, examples of this genre, it is distinguished by its peaceful: no fights, shootings and other combat elements. But in the project there are many simple puzzles and interesting locations that should be investigated. Graphics, of course, far from perfect, but in this case it plays a secondary role, and fits perfectly into the overall picture. We should also mention a wonderful soundtrack.

Lumino City is a puzzle adventure that is a sequel to the original game Lume. The development project lasted for three years. The visual component of the game is a hand-made decorations, created from cardboard, wood and miniature bulbs.
The developers focused on the visual imagery, brought it to perfection, what can be said about the gameplay — the game is very original, but easy enough.
History Lumino City begins with the kidnapping of the grandfather of the main heroine, girl, Lumi. According to the rules, she goes to find him, overcoming obstacles along the way, and opening the story puzzles. The initial reason for kidnapping not explain during the passage, but right at the end credits.
The visual component was literally created by the developers manually – from rags, cardboard and miniature bulbs. It is this feature of the game is its main “chip”. All the details of the game world is so wonderfully crafted that there is a desire to continue the passage solely for the sake of admiring the scenery. In this respect, Lumino City – a truly exemplary game.
But the puzzles are not so simple. They are sometimes so easy that I lost the desire to solve them. Sometimes the control of the main character quite picky – detects movements only in specific points.
In General, Lumino City is undoubtedly original and colorful project, but it lacks some properties to become one of the best in its genre. In fact, the whole game only keeps the visual component. But you can’t say a single bad word. This alone it is worth to take a look that represents this project.

The name Tim Schafer is well known to anyone igroman. A native of LucasArts, who opened his Studio Double Fine, often pleases fans of non-trivial games own products. The game Broken Age has gained popularity worldwide and is now available at a considerable discount.
The reason for the popularity of the game Broken Age, which was launched on Kickstarter, is a complex of features due to a non-trivial approach to the work of Tim Schafer. Abandoning the quest saturation of difficult puzzles, the developer focused on story, characters, and details of the game. This does not mean that the game has no challenging puzzles — they are, but sparing the intelligence of the gamer. “Okazualivanie”, that is, the simplification of the passing game, was not an end in itself but was subordinated to the requirements of the plot.
In Broken Age is the story sets the tone of the entire game, and that, on the basis of its twists and turns appear puzzles with puzzles. This may deter potential players, but in the reviewer’s opinion, Broken Age is in the plot plan outstanding game and in future it is quite possible its adaptation.
The game has two main characters — teenagers Shay and Vella. In the story, tired of aimless exploration, pilot Shay is looking for some loophole in a world filled with events and adventures, not an illusion.
In contrast to the guy, the girl Vella quite a busy life. When meeting with this character, before it just gets the task of salvation from the sacrifice of the beast. Striving for a calm life, Vella will get into the history with every step. Both characters, following in her path, will meet only at the end of the game.
Actually, the game does not end, what I recall the inscription “to be continued”.

Text quests are a rather special genre of games. Despite the fact that the game industry and then delights us with a fascinating big-budget innovations, the number of fans of interactive stories has not diminished. Is not decreasing and the number of releases, invariably attracts the attention as a gaming community and critics.
In the game Object 17 we have to help a character to deal with complex and potentially dangerous situation. This time the main character is a nameless clerk, living an extremely boring life, most of which takes unloved job. One day, returning home at night in a dark alley, he gets something heavy on the head, loses consciousness, and then wakes up in an unfamiliar old room.
Beside him he finds a messenger with a single contact, which he hastens to write, appealing for help. From that moment the game takes the user. He will tell the character where to go and what to do. Every decision taken by the user may have for the hero unpleasant consequences, up to death, because it is important to think through every step.
So, obviously, the clerk someone was kidnapped. And the player will not just help the guy get out of prison, but also to find out why someone would want this boring type. The danger will lie in wait at every corner, but almost always the user will be able to save the main character. And if you still keep alive the guy does not, you can always start the game over or since the last decision.
On the positive side can be noted the oppressive atmosphere and good storyline — fans of suspense should be like. The game is designed for two or three days, because the intrigue will be kept for a long time. On the other hand, the developer went overboard with forcing this intrigue: responses from the main character in the most intense moments come not at once. Over time, this is totally unnecessary delay of the game becomes a bit annoying.
Also, for all its virtues, not to mention the unfinished ending. No open endings, but no catharsis from junction. However, questions to the end, the developer promised to resolve in the Object 18 is the sequel to the game in question.
