For most people ‘playing the piano’ is one of their bucket list items. For many kids – and parents – it means expensive lessons and disruptive trips to teachers, and often a non-stop battle to practice! JoyTunes seeks to make piano learning more fun with their Piano Dust Buster and Piano Mania apps for iPhone and iPad!
According to JoyTunes:

This week Apple released the ‘best of 2013′ list, which had what they called ‘the best’ apps in different categories. But the list also had the top paid and free iPhone and iPad games and apps, and the results are not surprising, but tell us much about the trends in the gaming audience on mobile devices.
I won’t repeat the
Last week I did a quick hands-on preview of The Shadow Sun, expressing enthusiasm with very few reservations. Now that the game is released, and I’m free to discuss it, my feelings are … the same. This is the first original RPG on the App Store that isn’t a port or a pale imitation, and it is actually worthRead more
We have discussed the Mailbox App here more than a couple of times, with the initial buzz and hype quickly falling off for all of the editors.

Back in 2011 Wadjet Eye Games released Gemini Rue for PC, a sci-fi dystopian adventure with intriguing story and characters.

I was a huge fan of LEGO Star Wars and LEGO Star Wars II way back in 2005 and 2006 when they were released and a fan of the subsequent 2007 ‘Complete Saga’ release.

I’ve been talking about The Shadow Sun from Ossian Studios for three years now since it was first announced. I’ve also been able to play beta and preview builds of the game.

While some folks express concerns about royalty payouts and business models, the reality is that people love Spotify because it allows them to listen to the music they want to when, where and how they want. And today they are announcing ways that even more people can enjoy the service, and an expansion of the free service for tablet users.
When I was a kid, the concept of ‘wind chill’ was new; the National Weather Service didn’t start reporting it until the 1970s, and it took a while longer to become popular with news viewers. Now it has evolved into ‘Real Feel’ or ‘Feels Like’ rather than just ‘Wind Chill’. Either way, Apple’s Weather app doesn’t have a clue.Read more
Games such as Stand O’Food and Supermarket Management challenge players to complete an increasingly complex series of tasks in a set amount of time, often with profit and cost constraints as well.

I love tower defense, and know that with games such as Plants vs. Zombies and Kingdom Rush there are several Gear Diary members who spend way too many hours on just-one-more-turn! But imagine a game where instead of just planning your defense, you actually got to attack your enemies!?! That is exactly what the newly released Aspects TD delivers.Read more
‘Auto-runner’ games are fan favorites, and I know my kids have enjoyed a variety of them.

Yawn … another week, another fun game from Vogat & G5 Entertainment. Of course I am joking, but it is at the point where seeing those names raises expectations. Fortunately, with Elixir: The League of Immortality they once again deliver a high quality experience with a great mix of hidden objects, puzzles and find-the-item gameplay wrapped around an engaging story.
When http://geardiary.com/2012/09/06/nightmares-from-the-deep-the-cursed-heart-collectors-edition-hd-for-ipad-review/">I reviewed Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart Collector’s Edition on the iPad last year I praised the game, saying the “seamless integration of hidden object areas, mixed scenes and puzzles flows better than in most genre games”.

Spacetime Games is on a roll, releasing multiplayer games for iOS and Android across genres that are free to try and a blast to play. The latest of these games is Battle Command.

The game has since been released on Android, Kindle Fire and Nook. Even better, for this week only G5 Entertainment is giving the game away for free on all platforms!

Thanksgiving weekend is famous for a turkey-induced state of lethargy, manic shopping craziness, and most recently an onslaught of digital video game sales. To that end G5 Entertainment is having a huge sale all weekend long on some of their most popular games, and across all platforms! Personal favorites include the ‘Letters from Nowhere’ and ‘Special Enquiry Detail’ games.
When I reviewed Lost Souls: Enchanted Paintings HD from G5 Entertainment last year, I praised the interesting story and great visuals, but not the huge download and rather formulaic proceedings after promising start. Overall I really enjoy the game, and if you haven’t played yet NOW is the time as G5 is giving it away for FREE on all platforms!
