Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Xenodrome Review

mza_2800851623389469572.320

We covered Ben 10 Ultimate Alien Xenodrome when it first came out several months ago, but since I had no access to a tablet (the game is out for iOS and Android-based devices) at that time, we were unable to post a proper review, and instead provided basic info about the game based on promotional materials and video demonstrations.

However, I now have access to an el cheapo generic Android tablet, and since I discovered that it’s good enough to run Ben 10 Ultimate Alien: Xenodrome, I figured I might as well post a review.

Good news first: it’s a beautiful game that takes advantage of cel-shading techniques to provide 3D visuals that look like they were taken straight out of the cartoon. And it’s not resource-intensive, as evidenced by the fact that I can run it on my cheap tablet (which only had a 1 Ghz dual core processor and a Mali GPU.)

Zuko Monsters Game Released on Apple’s App Store for FREE

Zuko Monsters Game Released on Apple's App Store for FREE

It’s been teased last year and scheduled to come out December 2012 – there’s been a delay, which is par for the course in the industry – but Zuko Monsters is finally available on the iTunes App Store, and it’s available for FREE. You can download the game to your device via the following link: http://www.zukomonsters.com/

Technically, the fact that it’s free to play makes any review seem redundant, as the time you spend on reading could be better spent downloading the game and trying it out for yourself. But we suppose mentioning a few things is in order:

First, comparisons with the Pokemon franchise can’t be helped. But that’s not entirely a bad thing, as Pokemon became massively successful due to its quality – if Zuko Monsters managed to be as good, then all is well, and probably even better considering it’s free to play.

Shaquille O’Neal Gets His Own iOS Videogame: ShaqDown

Shaquille O’Neal Gets His Own iOS Videogame: ShaqDown

The last time we let Shaquille O’Neal have his own basketball-themed videogame, we got Shaq Fu on the Sega Genesis. The game was not “cheesy bad.” It was just plain cheesy, and it was extremely bad. The graphics were awful and the controls were extremely laggy and inconsistent. Shaq Fu was released back in 1994, and Shaq probably thinks we’ve forgotten about it already so he’s taking another stab at his own basketball-themed videogame. Only this time it’s a sidescrolling action game for iOS and Android devices, titled “ShaqDown”:
