TraptionBakery 1.0

Device: iOS Universal
Category: Games
Price: $ 1.99 -> Free, Version: 1.0 (iTunes)

Description:

An Upcyclepunk Postimperial Curio.

A curio for some or a right old puzzle for others, make no mistake.
Some say: some folk actually managed to bake a loaf of bread using this confounded contraption… but that is rumoured to be just a rumour.

There’s no pressure… relax, ponder, prod, clank, crank, pull, push, watch… ponder more….sleep on it maybe… come back to it…ponder.

Along with the intriguing artwork there is the challenging puzzle with the ultimate objective of baking a loaf, but you can enjoy solving easier mile stones along the way like: ordering some grain, starting the mill, then milling yourself some flour, with this huge fully functional contraption. Look for clues written on the equipment, listen to the sound scape, and fathom the interconnections. Once you have solved the puzzle of how to bake a loaf then the simulator aspect of the game becomes apparent: you have to get the ingredients, mixing, proving and baking just right if you want to aspire to bake the perfect loaf. Your baking efforts are judged right at the end of the process… whether they be good, or bad.

Extras: for a Hints and Tips page (including "How-to" videos) or a super detailed TraptionBakery poster click on the "Jonathan Prestidge Web Site" link below.

"Is it steampunk?", some would ask. Well there is no steam and it is a contemporary contraption, but it is bigger scale than your modern new-fangled machines so you can see what does what with your very own eyes like in the good old days…
and it’s tech that repurposes, reuses, and recycles, welcome to: "Upcyclepunk".

Description:

Solitairica takes RPG combat and challenging rogue-like progression to a fresh new place—the world of solitaire!

Update: Space Marshals 2 (Games)


Space Marshals 2 1.0.17

Device: iOS iPhone
Category: Games
Price: $ 5.99, Version: 1.0.15 -> 1.0.17 (iTunes)

Description:

The sci-fi wild west adventure in outer space continues with Space Marshals 2. This tactical top-down shooter puts you in the shoes of specialist Burton in his struggle against the criminal elements of the galaxy.

This isn’t your ordinary dual-stick shooter. The emphasis is on tactical combat and stealth, rather than just spraying bullets, and there’s a story!

TACTICAL COMBAT
Use the environment to your advantage. Avoid attacks by taking cover. Flank enemies for extra efficiency, but avoid getting flanked yourself! Use the tools of the trade to gain an edge – frag grenades, flash bangs, drones, gun turrets, proximity mines and much more…

STEALTH
Choose your approach carefully. Some say running into the fray, guns blazing, isn’t always the answer. Use distractions to single out opponents. Use stealth takedowns and silenced weapons to covertly reduce the enemy numbers. Hack gun turrets to turn on their masters. Lure different enemy factions together and let them fight each other.

LOAD-OUT & GEAR
Choosing your load-out is a big part of your tactics. In addition to body armor and grenades you can carry one two-handed and one single-handed weapon – and there’s something for everyone. Shotguns, handguns, assault rifles, sniper rifles, crossbows, energy weapons, throwing axes and more.

•Tactical top-down shooter
•Gorgeous, stylistic HD graphics rendered with Metal
•20 missions with performance based rewards. TAMI is watching you!
•Wide selection of weapons and gear. Over 70 different weapons.
•Multiple factions to fight – or pitch against each other
•MFi controller support (requires extended layout)
•iCloud save game support
•Game Center achievements
•English, Deutsch, Français, Español, Italiano, 简体中文, 한국어, 日本語, 繁体中文, русский, Português do Brasil

Solitairica and 4 more iOS solitaire games with a twist

Solitairica is out now on the App Store, bringing a delightful RPG twist to the classic single-player card game.

It joins a surprisingly fertile sub-genre of games that take solitaire and apply some video game magic to form something new and exciting. Often that involves RPG elements, but it seems as if anything goes – from golf to pirates.

If you’re fed up of dealing yourself the same old cards, download a few of these onto your iPhone or iPad.

Solitairica

Solitairica

The latest addition to this list is Solitairica from Righteous Hammer Games. It’s a colourful Unreal Engine-powered card battler that utilises solitaire rules as its basis, but stirs in some RPG elements. Clearing cards adds powers up various special abilities for fending off a colourful assortment of monsters, whilst drawing a fresh card allows those beasties to attack.
