How to Learn to Fly Idle

Welcome Time Wasters! This week was fairly busy for me and I didn’t have a lot of time to dedicate to a Time Waste (I did make time to see the new Godzilla and I was disappointed by how little screen time the title creature got). Normally, I like to sit down and give a game my full attention, but I just couldn’t do that this time around. My solution to this was to find a game that I could play while doing other stuff, and I might have found the perfect game for that, sort of. That game is … Continue reading How to Learn to Fly Idle

RunBot is a Win for Mobile Gamers

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I turned to my phone to find a game to pass my time with. At first I downloaded Wind-up Knight 2, but unfortunately the game glitched out really bad on me to the point it was unplayable. I’m going to try downloading it again and maybe it will be the Time Waster next week. Luckily, I did find a replacement in RunBot. RunBot is a free-to-play game that is part of the endless running genre. I’ve reviewed games from this genre in the past, such as Subway Surfers, and have found that it takes a really … Continue reading RunBot is a Win for Mobile Gamers

Puzzle Legends is a Treat for the Mind

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I searched around the internet until I discovered a game called Puzzle Legends. For those wondering, I am still playing Earthbound, but I’ve also now started playing Final Fantasy on my PSP. Puzzle Legends is a top down game that puts players in the shoes of an adventurer travelling through a tower of puzzles. The controls in Puzzle Legends are really simple. Players move the adventurer around with the arrow keys and switches and such are activated with “X”. The puzzles in Puzzle Legends are really fun and can take a good bit of thinking to … Continue reading Puzzle Legends is a Treat for the Mind

Dig to China? Why Not?

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I had a hard time pulling myself away from other games to find a Time Waster. Those who have read my reviews and heard me in podcasts know that I love retro games and RPGs. That being said, it probably doesn’t come as a surprise that I lost myself in Earthbound this week. Yes, I have played through the game before, but that was several years ago and I’d forgotten just how easily that game pulls me in. I did however manage to excavate the internet in an endeavor to find a game to spend … Continue reading Dig to China? Why Not?

Crazy for Crazy Machines

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I didn’t have to look around for a Time Waster. Instead, John sent me a review copy of Crazy Machines: Golden Gears. I’ve never played any of the Crazy Machines games prior to this, but I know others here at GiN have enjoyed them. For those already thinking it; Yes, GiN has reviewed Crazy Machines: Golden Gears in the past. This release of Golden Gears came out for iOS and Android devices last year and our reviewer gave it 4 GiN Gems. Being new to the Crazy Machines series means that I’m not going to … Continue reading Crazy for Crazy Machines

A Boreing Good Taste

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I was sent a code to check out a game that isn’t finished yet. That game is Full Bore. Upon hearing the name of the game, I was already excited about all the bore puns I could use to say how bad it is (I like puns more than I probably should), but I can’t do that. Full Bore starts out with players choosing to play as either Frederick, the male bore, or Hildi, the female bore. Whichever bore is chosen by the player will run out into a field only for an explosion to … Continue reading A Boreing Good Taste

An Out of Body Experience

Welcome Time Wasters! This week I didn’t have anything waiting to be played and instead took to the internet to find something. In my adventures I discovered A Ghostly Journey. A Ghostly Journey is a puzzle/platforming game that puts the player in control of a ghost that feels he should leave the graveyard. Our ghostly friend explains that he feels something pulling at him and that he need to find out what it is. I completed the game and I’ve got to say that I didn’t really understand the story. Those who don’t want any spoilers should skip these next … Continue reading An Out of Body Experience
