3 reasons to play Thunder Armada – the new WWII naval stategy game from Chyogame

The bygone days of the Battleship board game might have past, but naval combat simulators still find an audience on mobile. Thunder Armada is Chinese developer Chyogames latest entry into the genre, drawing inspiration from the explosive exchanges across the seas during World War 2. Here are three reasons to set sail for its turbulent tides.

Realistic models

Thunder Armada features detailed models strictly based on the design of historical vessels from around the world, rendered in 3D. The British Nelson-class and American Iowa-class battleships feature alongside the likes of the Japanese super-dreadnought Nagato and Kuroshio destroyers. History buffs should find something to get excited about, then.

Strategic battles

Taking inspiration from the oceanic clashes in the Pacific and Altantic, Thunder Armada puts you in the midst of the action. You take strategic command during famous battles including Pearl Harbour and Midway Island, with text providing historical context during each campaign. Which formation you choose for you fleet directly impacts how the conflict unfolds, often more so than how you use the manual controls, so you can’t sit back and relax. You’ve got a war to win.

Familiar faces

Drawing further from the history books, T…

The Thursday Find, our favourite game of the week – Time Recoil

Oh look it’s Thursday again. I know I said things were going to change around here last week, but I’ve decided some things are better staying the way they are. At least for the time being anyway. But don’t get too attached to anything, destruction is the nature of the universe.

All of that means that we’re going to do another Thursday Find. That’s when we write about one game that you definitely should be playing this week. It was hard picking just one, but I think I’ve spotted an under-appreciated doozy that’s going to make you go “oh, thanks for finding us that under-appreciated doozy, Harry.”

As usual you can click on the emboldened name of the game below to download it from the App Store. And if you’ve got your own suggestions for a Thursday Find, feel free to share them with the class by adding them to the comments down there at the bottom of this excellent content.

Time Recoil

This one has been out on various other consoles and gaming devices for a while now, but it’s just landed on the App Store and it’s pretty damn good. If you like twin-stick shooters you’re going to lap it up.

Bear in mind though that this is a twin-stick shooter with a twist. Namely that there’s only one stick. And when you shoot people you slow down time. Oh, and if you kill enough people you’ll unlock special moves that can literally destroy walls.

The best hints, tips, and tricks for Color Ballz for iPhone

Color Ballz is one of those little games that you’re going to get horribly addicted to. I of course mean that in the best possible way. Like, you’re not going to go out and mug old ladies just so you can get another hit. It’s free, it’s ad-supported, and it’s an awful lot of fun.

If you don’t know what it is, allow me to enlighten you. Imagine a mix betwee Breakout and Pachinko. You’re controlling a paddle at the bottom of the screen, and you need to hit falling balls into a funnel. The more balls you get in the funnel, the more points you get.

There are a few twists though. You’ve only got a limited number of balls, and once they’ve all dropped below your paddle it’s game over. Don’t fret though, because we’ve put together a quick guide to ensure you’re going to be creeping up the leaderboard faster than you can say colour should have a U in it.

The bonuses

There are a number of different bonuses available as you bounce the balls into the funnel. The multiplier means your balls will score you more points as you catch them. The extra balls adds an extra ball to the bounce, and hopefully to your stash, and the size increaser makes any balls that passes through it bigger and easier to hit.

The key to getting a good score is hitting these bonuses. But there are a few things you should keep in mind while you’re trying to bag them.

Don’t chase it

It’s tempting to try and hit the bonuses wh…
