Krashlander – Ski, Jump, Crash! – Major Update to 2D Physics Ski Game

0

Farseer Games has released Krashlander – Ski, Jump, Crash! for iOS, a major update to their 2D, platform-style, physics-powered ski game. Evil robots have destroyed the world and the player must ski down large mountain slopes and soar over gaping crevices to attack the robots and exact revenge. Utilizing a physics driven control mechanic from an abandoned game called Ski Stunt Simulator, Krashlander challenges players to destroy robots by crashing into them. It is a skill-based game with 40 progressively more challenging levels.

To navigate the game, the player uses a touch surface on the right side of the screen to control the physical posture of the skier. Adjusting the posture will help the skier avoid obstacles, increase speed, or jump off cliffs to take out the robots. Some levels may require multiple runs to destroy the target.

Here is the official trailer to give you a flavour of how Krashlander is played.

“The great thing about Krashlander is you can play each level a little differently,” says Phil Eaves of SlidetoPlay (20 Feb 2013). “You can do flips off of cliffs if you want, or you can play it safe. It’s a game that makes you feel cool when you pull off all the right moves.”

Feral Interactive have a great sale going on in the Mac App Store on Bioshock and Bioshock 2.  Both games are on sale for a limited time for $9.99, a full 50% off the regular price.  The alternate universal games have been a huge hit on consoles and PCs for many years and now we Mac users get to play!

For those who are not familiar with Bioshock or Bioshock 2, it is set in an alternate 1960s utopian world known as Rapture.  It all however has gone horribly wrong and now you get to try to survive.  The game is beautifully designed in an Art Deco setting and is a real thinking game, interweaving politics, morality and the human condition.

Bioshock for Mac

Bioshock for Mac

Oh, and there is carnage.  Lots of carnage.

What makes Bioshock intriguing is that you can play the game multiple ways so no two players will play the game exactly the same way.

Bioshock 2 picks up 10 years after Bioshock in the story line where one of the main characters of the original game, Eleanor, is under threat of being genetically altered by a cult that has taken over Rapture.  It is a fitting sequel to the original game and is hauntingly beautiful.

And there is carnage.  Lots of carnage.

Apple Releases Updates to iWork Apps for Mac and iOS

0

With the release a week ago of Microsoft’s Office for iPad, it wasn’t a question of if Apple updated iWork apps but only a matter of when.  That when is today with the Cupertino company releasing updates for all three of the iWork apps – Keynote, Numbers and Pages – for both Mac OS X and iOS as well as the iCloud based versions.

Perhaps the biggest new features for all three apps on all three platforms is the new View Only function.  This allows you to share a file but those whom you share it with are unable to edit the app.  You can initiate this feature from your iOS device, iCloud or your Mac.  Almost as important, you can now search all three for files by their name which will dramatically improve searching if you have dozens of files.

In Keynote on iOS, you can now tap-and-hold while you are presenting to illuminate on a slide.  Like PowerPoint for

Keynote for iCloud New Features

Keynote for iCloud New Features

iPad, Keynote now has a laser pointer but also gives you an array of colour markers to highlight on a slide as you are presenting.  It is provided in a small tray that pops up at the bottom of Keynote when you are in Presentation mode.

Finally there is also Retina display support now in all three of the apps for iCloud.

I have been an exclusive iWork apps user for nearly a year now and while there are still elements that the Microsoft apps do better – particularly when comparing Numbers and Excel – it works for me.

The iWork apps are either free or $9.99 each depending on if you were new to iPhone or iPad with the release of iOS 7. For Mac users, the apps are $19.99 each.  That means, worst case, you are paying $89.94 for all them, $10 less than a year of Office 365.  Plus the iOS versions are universal apps that work equally as well on your iPhone or iPad.
