Grand Prix Story Mobile

Grand Prix Story is a cute little mobile game from Kairosoft. The idea is you start a race car company with a little bit of money, a small car and crew and watch them race while you decide on sponsors, crew, and parts. As you level up you get new cars, better crew, better parts, and harder races.

The game is simple and straight forward without much of a learning curve. That being said, the game itself isn’t easy to master. Putting the right parts on the right car for the right race can be fun in itself. The game, however, does have a breaking point and eventually, you do get so much money and experience you can just toss any car anywhere and win. The game, however, was worth the couple bucks I paid for it, so give it a shot and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Realm Grinder

Realm Grinder is one of the tap games published by Kongregate but this one is just not good. It explains very little really, the gimmick of good and evil really do very little except changes the buildings you get to choose from and they make no real difference anyway. This may be the very definition of busywork that I don’t understand how anyone can possibly enjoy. It is just a matter of clicking on buildings that give you money to buy more of them to buy different buildings but it never feels like you are being rewarded for doing it. it is just a matter of doing it for the sake of doing it. This one is best avoided. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Bid Wars Pawn Empire (Mobile)

Bid Wars Pawn Empire is a mobile game from Tapps Games and the idea is simple. You bid on a storage unit and sell the contents in your store. Use that money to upgrade your store and vehicle so you can carry and buy more things to sell. The problem is that is really all there is to the game and it gets boring pretty fast.

You will quickly be running into the same items fast and going through the same motions over and over again. The game is fun at first, but it didn’t take long for me to lose interest. Best wishes an may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Angry Birds 2 (Mobile)

Angry Birds 2 is a lot like the first. You will be flinging at random structures to kill green pigs. Levels will inevitably get harder and harder and you will unlock new birds that do different things. Some will explode while others split into separate birds or fly fast to slam through targets.

The game is, in theory, simple and straight forward. Just chuck a bird through the structure and boom, stuff falls over and pig dies. Later on, however, it gets much harder. You will have to aim carefully to take out supports or push wheeled carts over and take things out that way. The game for me, however, failed to recreate the magic of the first one.

When the first released I remember being infatuated with it, playing for hours and draining my cell phones batter. This one looks better than ever and allows for plenty of customization but I just never had that strong desire to play. The game is fun of course and its good to kill a bit of time with, but for me, it just doesn’t do the same job. By all means, try it, it is fun, but it won’t likely be the nostalgia trip you were hoping for. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Junkyard Tycoon Business Simulator (mobile)

This is one of those games that looked pretty cool if you like tycoon games, had decent enough reviews to be worth checking out, and turned out to be horrible.

The general idea is you buy an old car, strip it for parts, and then sell them when the price is high to make your money back. This sounds easy and it techncially is, but it can be very time consuming. Many times I would spend more time waiting to sell parts than it took to get the parts in the first place.

The game starts off sloq as you can only have one car at a time, but as you get more money you can buy more space and more cars. This doesn’t really get you money faster so to speak, you still spens most of your time waiting. The more expensive cars are worth more money obviously but the waiting still sucks.

As with many mobile games I review, this one is best avoided. There are just better games out there that are far more fun. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Fishing Paradiso

Fishing Paradiso is a mobile game that is pretty simple and straight forward, tho a bit odd in terms of story. You play as what appears to be a child,who is dead and in Heaven. A huge star looking whale tells you he wants to see you again, but you have to reach him at a higher place in heaven, which seems to be in space.

You awaken on an island with a bird pecking at you to get you moving. He explains that fishing in heaven isn’t quite the same. Fish in heaven are special and as such is treated differently in heaven.

The mechanics are simple, and bait recharges over time or you can pay real money to get infinite bait. Admittedly doing sill will make the game go real quick I am sure as most of what slowed me down was waiting for bait to recharge in the first place. It is pretty fun as far as mobile games go and it is a nice way to waste a fee minutes at a time, but don’t spend any real money on it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Dream Hospital (Mobile)

Dream hospital quickly went from a game a started out enjoying and quickly became highly disappointed in. While the sound and graphics are nice it became quickly apparent there wasn’t enough room to really build most of what you needed and getting the money together to build it was either an insane grind or would require real money. While we all play mobile games knowing this is the game plan because honestly how else will they make money, some games do take this way to far and this is one of those games.

Now the game is admittedly enjoyable, seeing all the people come and go, building rooms, equipping doctors and rooms while leveling up to find cures and new illnesses can be a blast. The added bonus of being able to create items to help cure things is also pretty awesome in itself. It just isn’t really worth the headache of having to grind just to hire a doctor after grinding to build a room. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
