An interesting game

Happy Wheels is a very difficult yet highly addictive iphone app in the vain of Backflip Madness and QWOP. It contains an interesting level system with cool characters and a level customization section,615 Ellis St, San Francisco, CA 94109

Is It Any Good?

Really good strategy titles are hard to find in the app world. RYMDKAPSEL not only nails the formula, it adds enough variety to reignite some interest from lapsed fans of the genre. As an odd fusion of space opera, Tetris, and a classic strategy game, rymdkapsel is definitely best played on a tablet. The small print is almost illegible on smartphones. With a larger screen, the addictive nature of the game will quickly become obvious.

Victory is rather open-ended, but this app is about the journey rather than the destination. Our only notable complaint is the sometimes inconsistent nature of the AI, which doesn't always make the wisest choices. It's the only part of the game that isn't intuitive. Otherwise, the game's balance is just right. Rather than focusing on joyless micromanagement, rymdkapsel lets players keep an eye on the bigger picture, which is what makes strategy games so fun in the first place.
