Orions: Legend of Wizards Review for Pocket PC!

“According to their web site, Orions uses a powerful particle engine for animation. Now, I have no idea what this means, and I suspect that you don’t either; and it really doesn’t matter. What does matter is that the animation in this game is crisp, smooth, and exceptionally well drawn. Unlike many graphically-rich games, however, Orions does not rely on the graphics and animation to tell the story. In fact, this is a game which would probably be just as interesting and enjoyable with minimal animation and graphics. Orions does not need these graphics, however, it certainly uses them well and benefits from their presence in the game.” Read more here:

PaintBall 2 for Symbian S60 3rd Edition Review!

“PaintBall 2, by Greek developers CrazySoft, is a puzzle game which revolves around trying to clear coloured spheres from the playing area by painting a row of three or more the same colour. Your paint colour changes after each move and your paint supply (or “life”) is limited. When you run out of paint, the game ends.If a row of same-coloured spheres is next to one of the pipes that surround the grid, the pipe sucks it away so that more spheres can fall into the playing area from above. When a row disappears, you get more paint and your score goes up, with a longer row giving you even more paint and points.An added twist is the concept of “hot pipes”, where pipes that are used a lot start to glow red and give you bonus points and paint. There are also other extras, such as wobbling spheres (which you have to suck away as quicky as possible for bonus points) and letter spheres (which give you a mega-bonus when you spell out the entire word “paintball”).This review was written using a Nokia E61, and uses the S60 3rd Edition version. Please note the S60 3rd version is only for models with 240×320 or 320×240 screens, other resolutions aren’t supported. There’s also a UIQ3 version of PaintBall 2.” Read more here:
