I regularly get asked to review games on this site, and unfortunately many of them just aren't that great, or are unoriginal imitations of more successful ideas. Every now and then however, a game comes along that takes a great existing genre and makes it better. Today, that game is Galactic Hero - a great turn based 'three in a row' puzzle game, crossed with an epic space saga.
For a start, this game looks, sounds and is designed flawlessly. Everything simply works, whether it be the Google Play Games integration, the simple menu systems or the easy quick settings. The graphics are fantastic and the sound is perfect for the genre! This is a high quality production!
In relation to the gameplay, this game is equally well designed. The game follows a turn based battle system, in which you can create three in a row to add points to your player, or create three in a row of then opposing players gems to remove points from their bars of energy. There are various upgrades that can be earn't along the way to help, but the simple gameplay hook is never clogged down with unnecessary extras - instead is hooks you in with ever increasing layers of strategy and increasingly skilled opponents.
This game is truly great to play. It comes highly recommended - check it out today!
In the words of the developer:
Galactic Hero: Space adventure saga meets turn-based match 3 puzzle game.

Halloween Kid Counter
With Halloween fast approaching, no doubt everyone is well and truly into the planning phase. For some, that surely means going out and trying to buy the most outrageous costume ever. For others iot may involve decorating the house and carving pumpkins, and for others, it means heading to the supermarket and buying outrageous amounts of candy.
With this in mind, plus the recent trend for everything and everyone embracing the concept of the 'quantified self' comes a great new Android app called Halloween Kid Counter. After installing the app, Halloween Kid Counter allows you to easily keep track of how many 'trick or treaters' knock on your door on Halloween night. This could be useful for those who like to keep track of the number of visitors they have every year.
And that's about it. This is a simple app that does one thing and does it well. On top of being able to keep track of the number of attendees every year, it also allows you to associate a picture with every year. This is a nice extra feature. Interestingly, I actually see uses for this app beyond the Halloween uses, as it is a simple app that allow easy counting across a variety of years, With the ability to customise the background image for a particular year, I imagine people finding ongoing uses.
All in all, an interesting app worth checking out.
In the words of the developer:
This simple app allows you to keep track of the number of children that have visited you for Halloween. You can associate a photo of your Halloween decorations with each year of data that you store in the app.
You can also enter historical Halloween data if you choose to.
Click the + or - buttons to increase or decrease the child count.
Click the left or right arrow buttons to go to the previous or next year respectfully.
