5 iOS Games Of 2015 You Cannot Overlook

CrossyRoadiOS_1The market is flooded with gaming apps and millions of titles abound. There are tons of games competing with one another even within specific genres. So many, that it’s difficult to find a good game
sometimes,
unless one becomes a total sensation (read: the likes of Angry Birds or Clash Of Clans).
As we near the end of 2015, it’s a good time to look back at some of the more noteworthy gaming apps we’ve been at this year. Many of them have been easy to overlook with the unending roulette of apps. We look at five gaming apps that got a dedicated audience and deserve a mention:

1. Crossy Road

This was one of the hottest app games of the summer and was designed by Hipster Whale. They specialise in a sort of retro approach to new-age arcade games. The company also put out Pac-Man 256, an endless maze version of the ordinary Pac-Man. With these two titles, they’re starting to be one of the more renowned developers.
Crossy Road itself is
like
a Frogger-inspired take on the age-old question, “why did the chicken cross the road?” That means you’re hopping across busy highway lanes as a pixel-drawn chicken so it’s endless fun.

2. Agar.io

Miniclip has had a hit on its hands for a while with Agar.io that has been a popular browser-based Internet game for a while. But it’s also suited to play as an app because it works just fine with a touchscreen and makes use of Wi-Fi connectivity to connect with other users.
For those unfamiliar with the app or original browser game, you’re tasked with controlling a blob of space. You can think of yourself as a virus looking to consumer others’ blobs to increase your own reach. There’s a bit more to it than that, but you essentially want to keep growing and expanding at the expense of others while avoiding bigger players who could be a threat to you. It’s a combination between a challenging puzzle and an everyday time waster, and a must-have for any regular app gamer.

3. Avengers Alliance

Plenty of fans have complained over the years about Marvel’s lack of a strong presence in current generation consoles, and it’s a fair argument. But the entertainment giant has always been competitive online, and this game feels like an extension of that success.
Marvel Heroes 2015 has become one of the more impressive MMO options online, and Gala Casino’s selection of online casino games offers a satisfying variety of Marvel characters. Games like these exemplify the best of Marvel gaming—Heroes being a massive world RPG, and the casino games roping in most of the popular Avengers with their own titles.
Avengers Alliance, too, excels by compiling numerous Marvel heroes, and that alone makes it worth a look. The game functions as something of a character collector and RPG
aggregate,
and is actually a converted Facebook game made for iOS. There’s a plot—collecting a substance called ISO-8 before
Dr.
Doom and Loki can get it all—but the real fun is in collecting your favourite heroes and taking them into battles.

4. Soda Dungeon

If you’re looking for console-quality graphics that are taking over a lot of major smartphone games these days, this probably isn’t for you. If you, on the other hand, prefer a more old-school arcade experience like what Crossy Road has to offer, you should find Soda Dungeon just as delightful as I have.
It’s a character-collecting brawler in which you can gain new players to enact and then take them on various quests. You attract new characters by upgrading and maintaining a bizarre,
dungeon-esque
soda bar.
Also, and it’s very tame in case the kids want to play. The whole thing is presented in a perfect pixelated world, just crude enough to look old without being a pain to use.

5. A Blind Legend

This one takes a little getting used to, and it certainly isn’t for everyone. But if you’re the type who likes to really focus on app games rather than fiddle with them once in a while, A Blind Legend might be worth a look. That’s because this is a game designed with no visuals,
instead
employing the use of surround sound audio to describe your setting and force you into action. Basically, you’re a knight on a quest with your daughter guiding the way, avoiding traps and acting out an adventure entirely by sound and touch.
Apple n Apps described it as “trying to become visionary” (somewhat ironically) in that this game holds the potential to create its own category. It’s not a perfect experience, but it’s certainly different. It’s also good, immersive fun.

Hopes High on Upvoted; New Reddit Website

upvoted reddit websiteReddit, the front page of the Internet, has announced a new website with new content. It is called Upvoted and works as a kind of digital magazine. There will be original digital bits derived from the community but coming from the mother ship, i.e. Reddit, directly.

There are certain stories in this new site that seems to be sponsored but it is nothing new for Reddit as it already is allowing native advertisements in the site. Maybe the new website has been created to offload some of the ads to make both users and advertisers happy.

Upvoted with have contents in the form of videos, Ask Me Anything section, podcast and everything else that Reddit is offering.

Heath Black, product lead at Reddit, said, “We have an editorial team that only works on the Upvoted content. They have editorial oversight into what we write. They will scour every nook and cranny on Reddit on a daily basis to find the coolest stuff, conduct interviews with the creators, and even in some situations orchestrate video AMAs or podcasts,” when asked about how Upvoted works.

The most important different between both the sites is that in Upvoted you cannot comment on any post. However, if you are yearning to do so, you can click on the link provided with the post to follow the original thread and post your comment. Reddit also did not launch any mobile app for Upvoted . May be it will come up with something soon for the mobile users.

Upvoted will publish around 10-20 original content everyday to start with. However, it is planning to churn out around 40 stories a day.

It is now to be seen how Upvoted fare in the vast digital universe.… Read the rest

How To Get Windows 10 On Your Device: The User’s Guide

Microsoft’s much hyped OS Windows 10 is now available in the market and like all previous operating systems, this too has invited a large number of queries from the users. Therefore, before laying hands on the new operating system, it will be wise to get some understanding of it.

 Downloading the OS

Updating to Windows 10 is more or less simple and it can be downloaded on most of the computers as the hardware requirements for this operating system is almost at par with that of Windows 7. Yet, a free space of 20 GB (64-bit) or16 GB (32-bit) is necessary for the download. The device on which the operating system is to be downloaded also needs to have Windows 8.1 Update or Windows 7 Service Pack installed. Updating to Windows 10 is also pretty easy as you just need to check the small Windows icon on the taskbar and then click on the option for “Check my PC”. Also make sure to uninstall the existing operating system after storing the necessary data in any external device or cloud. Updating the device drivers and making it compatible with the latest operating system is also necessary.

Settings and Start menu

Operating Windows 10 is not something very difficult as the settings menu is almost similar to that of Windows 8. Yet, it is even better as the Settings tab can be easily found on the Start menu. Even though Microsoft has included some of the important settings in the control panel, many basic settings are out of this panel.
The new settings menu includes- system tab, device tab, personalization tab, internet and network tab, accounts tab, ease of access tab, time and language tab, update and recovery tab as well as the privacy tab. Unlike Windows 8, the Start button of the new operating system can be easily located on the left corner. Yet, the screen has a hybrid approach and once the button is clicked, users will get settings and applications shortcuts on the screen. To get the apps on the device, just click on the All Apps settings. However, to find any app at once, users can just type and search the app. The multiple desktop feature of the new operating system is quite handy but is limited at present.

 Edge Browser

The all new Edge Browser in Windows 10 is also quite useful. With the inking features users can now write on web pages directly and share with others. The navigation feature on the Edge browser is also quite noteworthy. Also there is no need to waste hours on installing updates as the Windows will update and restart itself automatically after updating.

Here’s How To Save Your Apple Watch From Stubborn Scratches

The Apple Watch is prone to give you trouble—in terms of gaining scratches more often than you imagined! However, despite there being no official band for the Apple Watch that comes laced with display protection or some case within, get some non Apple band for protecting your Watch! Make sure you pick one up that covers the entire watch except the screen.

Here’s How To Save Your Apple Watch From Stubborn Scratches

The Silicone Story

It is likely that these bands come in silicone but come sans any seamed line to reveal where the strap gets to meet protector bits. Forget looking classy here—these bands are high on functionality but low on price—so forget something that is up to the standard of Apple.

Remedies For Those Light Scratches

Even if your Apple Watch has faced assault and is scratched up already you could take help from classic metal polish. Use a clean cloth in microfiber to dab some polish and work your way to buff off the scratches.  Remember, this works only when the scratches are superficial and do not run too deep. Still unhappy? Shell out extra bucks and ask your jeweler to put the Apple Watch under some polishing equipment to restore sheen!
