Addicted Gamers

Friday, March 18, 2011

With the iPad 2 being revealed earlier this month gamers are wanting to know what apps they should be downloading.

Angry Birds is still at the top of the must have games for the iPad.

Angry Birds is a puzzle video game in which players use a slingshot to launch birds at pigs placed on or inside of diverse structures. The objective is to destroy all the pigs on the playfield.

Doesn't sound too glamorous, but gamers find it very addictive.

Another addicting game for the iPad is Fieldrunners.

Fieldrunners is a tower defense video game. There are eight different types of weapons that are used to destroy the different characters that are attempting to make it across the field.

The player's objective is to create some type of maze to keep the characters from reaching the opposite side of the field.

Fieldrunners doesn't sound too entertaining, but from my experience it is. I have spent hours creating different types of mazes to make it to the next level.

As with all video games there are secret cheat codes and hints that can be discovered on the Internet. However, I warn those of you who are tempted to search for these cheats. It takes a great deal of fun out of the game, and I have found that after finding the solution I become bored with the game.

I think cheatcodes can be useful in some games. I always played tomb raider when I was younger. It pretty much was impossible to beat the game or move on to the next level if you didn't have a cheat code. I agree that it might take the fun out of the game, but so does getting stuck in one single level for the duration of your playing time.

Figuring out the game on your own is what I feel makes playing a game so fun. I am a huge fan of playing Bubble Shooter on my phone and have found it makes it interesting not knowing exactly how to pass the game. It helps engage your mind into thinking of ways to conquer the game on your own.

I agree that cheatcodes take away a lot of the fun from playing the games. I have never played the two games that you have suggested on your blog, but I will be sure to check them out now. If I like them they will be useful to download on to my iPod, so that I will have something to do when I travel to my basketball games.
