Surviving Mars: One Drone At A Time

The game Surviving Mars is one that is both addictive and can be hard as hell at the same time. You would think building a colony on Mars would be easier than what you have to do in this game. Even the easy start part of the game can become quite challenging rather quickly. Making sure you have metals, oxygen, water and more will keep you looking for more. Even with the slow pace of the game you can quickly become overwhelmed with what happens in the game. Surviving Mars is somewhat unique to other RTS type games that I have played in the past. It has some elements from greats like Civilization and elements from Colonization and others where……

Banished: The game that will surprise you

Banished is a builder survival game that keeps you entertained for hours on end in much the way that the original SimCity did when it was first released. The game was developed by newcomer software company Shining Rock Software. The quality of the game is rather excellent give that they entire install package is under 100k. The clarity of the graphics and smoothness of gameplay just draws you in in ways that you wouldn’t think possible. And yet with it deceptively simple game play it can be hard as well. Truly a wonderful and addictive game to play. The premise of the game is that a group of people have been exiled and now must start over in the land……

Viking Saga: New World

This version of the Viking Saga series by Realore Games is the third installment featuring the adventurer turned king, Ingolf, and how he sets about to take on a whole new world when things are looking kind of bleak in Iceland when an epidemic sweeps over the kingdom. This game will take you from the shores of western Iceland to Greenland, and on beyond all the way to the Amazon rainforest, and that is quite a journey. Along the way, you deal with your workers, natural disasters, wild animals, and persnickety druids. So, it seems that the New World is not all that different of an experience than any other in the life of a Viking. Go along, build new……

The Sims 2

The Sims 2 is funny and more entertaining than Call of Duty. I got away from first person shooters for a bit, and started playing this game. In this game, you are making the story about the Sims. Yes, you are a god in this game. The first thing to do in Sims 2 is to make a sim. You can make a family, but I would rather make one sim, instead making a family, or unless you want to cheat in this game. After you make your sim, find him/her a cheap house to live in. You can build a house for them. After that, have fun. When you are playing this game, you need keep up your sim’s……

Tropico 5 from Kalypso Media

Tropico 5 is the latest version of the Tropico Series that Kalypso Media and Haemimont Games has released and is one hell of a city builder. It was released for download by the Kalypso Launcher on May 23rd with great anticipation from gamers. Even though Tropico 4 and Tropico 3 has some issues gamers looked to 5 to fix those and keep the series alive. In some ways this is true but in others it just isn’t so. Some gamers, the more vocal ones, are calling this game just a reason for the two companies to sell DLC add-ons for stuff that should already be there. You will notice that the stars that have been given do not reflect some……
