The game covers the "The Lord of the Rings" original trilogy, including "The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Two Towers," and "The Return of the King," and you'll get several of the iconic locations and most memorable scenes as they played out in … Read more
Now this is a tough one: BMO or Marceline? We love them both, of course, but which one would you rather wear on a dress? Or even a swimsuit?
Australian geek clothier extraordinaire Black Milk has given us this dilemma with its most recent range: officially licensed "Adventure Time" dresses, leggings, T-shirts, and swimsuits. The aforementioned BMO and Marceline appear in the massive collection, alongside Finn, Jake, Gunter, Ice King, Lumpy Space Princess, Party God, Princess Bubblegum, and Tree Trunks.
No Flame Princess, though. We'd be all over Flame Princess. … Read more
So a teeny-tiny working Mac is pretty cool. And who wouldn't want a 3D-printed portable NES? But a model of the BMO from "Adventure Time," made out of Lego and housing a fully functional Linux-based Raspberry Pi computer? Oh, be still our beating hearts.
Software developer Michael Thomas created this wonder for BrickCon 2013.
"I came up with the idea a few months ago," he told CNET Australia. "I had purchased a Raspberry Pi and was trying to come up with interesting unique projects to make use of it. Being a fan of Lego, I'm also always looking for creative Lego builds to take on. I had seen some other Raspberry Pi Lego cases, and I knew the two fit well together.… Read more

Some kids these days expect a bit more from their literary adventures than a simple book can offer. The makers of the "Choose Your Own Adventure" books are looking to modernize the format for new fans by turning the series into an interactive cartoon app. A Kickstarter project is underway to provide the funding.
The Choose 'Toons project uses the familiar format of a second-person adventure with various crossroads where the decisions you make impact the outcome of the story. The first story, scheduled to be released as an iOS app, involves a child who finds a robot named Gus.… Read more
A Ride Into the Mountains (iOS|Android) uses simple graphics to create a stunningly artistic world where you play as a young boy battling demons with his trusty bow. The touch controls for firing your bow take some practice, but it's worth it to master your skills to watch the story unfold. Unfortunately, that's easier said than done.
The storyline for A Ride Into the Mountains is simple, but the presentation is what makes the game special. A family lives in the shadow of a mountain that houses a magical relic that protects the surrounding land. When an … Read more
Tiny Toon Adventures is a great port of the original Nintendo game, but it also comes with some browser-hijacking ads. The game, itself, is smooth and easy to control and the graphics will look perfect on any Android gadget. It's even more fun if you have a dedicated game pad or controller.
In order to get to the actual game, the app tries to make you agree to Airpush. That will take over your browser and other parts of your phone with nasty ads. If you make it through that, the app looks and feels just like the Nintendo … Read more
Galaxy Life Pocket Adventures is a unique combination of tower defense, village building, and resource management, resulting in an addictive, feature-rich game with only a handful of issues. While the game is a mishmash of different game functions and features, it manages to blend them seamlessly into a single interface that works well in most circumstances.
Unlike other games in the genre, the Galaxy Life startup is a bit light on exposition and training. You'll be shown where everything is, given instructions for purchasing new defenses and units, and shown how to protect your colony, but it takes time … Read more
Crazy Cartoon Jungle Animals Adventure tries to create a stripped-down, bare-bones game that in many ways doesn't quite work, most of all because of its lack of gameplay polish. The game is clunky, the animations blocky, and the design stripped down to such a level that it's never quite clear what you are doing or why you are doing it. The resulting game is entertaining in bursts, but doesn't have the staying power of other iOS games.
After starting the app, you can immediately start the tutorial, which works well to introduce the core concepts of the … Read more
Wow, the only thing worse than having to write an apology post for the previous day's early sellout is when the apology post itself suffers the same fate! Apparently users have an insatiable appetite for fast, high-capacity storage -- especially when it's dirt-cheap.
Today's deal can't really sell out, because it's digital, though the promo price may expire at any time, as may the coupon code -- though I'm pretty sure the latter is good through the end of the month.
Do you like action games? Then you're in for a treat: GameFly … Read more
