Andrew the Droid

Andrew the Droid

Okay, I'm on the 7th level of this game. It is getting hard.

This game is a puzzler. You move the screen as it is to make your droid fall to get to certain items. You have to get the switch in order to use the portal. And the chips are helpful in being able to move the board around different directions. I'm not sure if the red diamond is really that important but eh.

It reminds me of those games you play with the ball that you have to get into a hole by moving the board its on. But, this is harder, because of the obsticles.

I hate the freakin' stones! They are making this hard to get around them! And you can't jump! We'll see if I'll finish this game.

So, if you like those kind of puzzle games, this one is for you!

By the way, if anyone has any games they want me to review let me know. I'm open to suggestions. I enjoy games!

Upgrade Builder

Upgrade Builder

So, my cousin Brandt wanted me to review this game.

At first I had no idea what it was all about.

Lol. Its funny.

Anyway, there are no graphics; really. You have shapes and you build a ship, and the more money you collect from blowing up "bad" ships makes it so you can upgrade all your guns and stuff. The "waves" start out simple and get harder. There are 20 waves.

By the end its not having to upgrade your stuff, although a little upgrade helps. But, you have to decide which weapons will help you the most and how many of those weapons, etc.

I actually enjoyed this game. Its the simple things in life that are the most fun!

Its a short game, I think. Oh, also. Ha ha, I figured out by the like 10th wave that if you just hold down the space bar, its better.

Controls are arrows, and space bar! yay!

Video Games

I've decided along with movies I'll review games.


The first thing I noticed on this game is that I just went to the URL, clicked "Play" and that started the game! I didn't have to download anything, or hardly wait a second for it to start. That was pretty cool.
It is a really simple game-simple graphics, music, etc. But, you have to strategize a lot. Your airship has to survive, you have to shoot down the enemy. To do that you choose the path your ship goes, and if an enemy ship is in its path it will shoot, but you have to guess where the enemy ship will be by the end of the turn. All ships move at the same time.
You have just a few controls: arrow keys bring the focus back to your ship. You can move the line of sight forward, left, right, etc. You can have armor, but it takes one turn, and you can't shoot while you have it.
The more levels and medals you complete/get the harder it gets. It starts you out with one ship, then two, etc. But you have to fight more ships, and the way they place you on the map at the beginning will either make it easier or harder for you.
I usually don't like strategy games, but this was really fun! I didn't have to hear dialog, or read a story, I just played.
Overall, it was simple, but I loved that. It had me using my head, and learning from my mistakes. I really enjoyed it and would play it again.

Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland

This, unlike the Disney's animated Alice movie is not for children. It has some jokes and other things that are just not for children.

I really enjoyed this movie! Very creative, very pretty, colorful, etc. It was not meant to be 3D, and it would have still looked as good, I think even when not in 3D. A lot of movies are going to 3D these days, and I just don't think it is necessary; it looks cool, but that is about it. A few people I heard complained about the graphics, how it is supposed to be as good as Avatar, but wasn't. I disagree. I think the graphics were just as good, if not better!

As always Tim Burton takes a classic story and turns it to something mind boggling! I love the characters, I love the story! The only problem I had was that the Jabberwocky didn't have enough film time! But, I'm so glad he was in it nonetheless!

It has a lot of things from the book, and its not the classic tale, a twist, but there are a lot of things that are the same. The Queen once again befriends her, only to be betrayed in the end. And the White Queen is new. I loved it! Just go watch it!
