Another two Pinball Arcade tables were released:

Elvira: Scared Stiff (1996): This is the Elvira table I remember but forgot how fun it was. It has a pretty simple layout but there's a lot to do on that table - six stories to complete. Lots of voice and video and moving parts to this table. A nice easy one to get in to.

Big Shot (1973): This is the first elcro-mechanical table they released and its a surprising amount of fun. Forget your LED displays, extra balls, locks, multiballs, digital sounds and music this is back to the basics. You get 5 balls and your goal is to clear the balls from the pool table by hitting the various numbered ball targets on either side of the table. There is one nice surprise to the table where you can open a ball save gate. This one takes a bunch of skill (lots of table bumping) but is more fun than I thought it would be. The classic dings and bells you hear as the ball moves around the table is just fun to listen to.

I found out you can earn an extra ball for the table. But can only get one at a time.

Can get either of them for $3.99 or buy the pack for $4.99.

They also are offering a "Pro" mode for Tales of Arbian Knights for another $3.99. It's basically opens up the operators menu for the table. Not sure what that gets you exactly but its not for me.

My latest IOS obsession :  Dragon Island Blue.  A pokemanish/shinningforceish/old RPGish mashup of awesomeness.  Only $.99 but you can of course buy in game currency to help you along but is not required imo.  I've spent 15 hours or so on it and about $3 and love it.  It can be a bit grindy leveling up your monsters but done in small burst here and there it is not bad at all.  It can be quite challenging and has a ton of depth.  You can capture monsters and level them up.  Most can evolve into stronger ones and yet others can be combined via recipes to form new ones.  You can also sacrifice them to get soulstones that can be used to further boost your monster army.  You level up as well and can boost things like Defense, magic resist, HP, etc. for every monster in your army.  They come in different types as well: Earth, fire, water, air, light, dark.  Each of those are better/worst against opposite types so taking the right ones on the tougher fights is important.  Combat consist of of turnbased/phased combat where you trigger abilities that take up a certain number of time units.  Abilities unlock as your monsters gain levels.  You can take 6+(IRC) with you on your adventures.  More slots open up as you level so your army can get bigger.  I would guess I am about 25% or so done after 15 hours of play but I have been grinding a bit to keep my entire army up to level.  Lot's of depth and lot's to like for little $.

The King vs. Knights, Vikings, Wizards & other Scoundrels
is like a reverse Kaboom meets pachinko/Peggle and it's addictive as hell. You're the King atop his tower as invaders scale the walls.  You launch barrels at them, and they bounce from one to the other. Some have armor and need to be hit twice, some have helmets and take many hits unless you can get them from the side. There are wizards and archers and upgrades. The art style is really great, and the physics feel good.  Plus it's FREE and the iap feels inobtrusive so far. Give it a try.

Bah you guys got me hooked on Dragon Island Blue!  Perfect for the iPad Mini.

I'm also into this old game I found recently, Supremacy HD - I think it used to be called Civilization Wars HD, it's a Galcon-ish game in a fantasy setting.

Has anyone tried Samurai Empire?  It's got a big ad on Toucharcade, card battles and empire building or something like that.  I may give it a whirl.

I actually thought of you when I was posting my impressions.  Knew it would be right up your alley.  I have played almost nothing else since I got it a couple weeks ago.

Is this the supremacy game?

Yeah, I tried Samurai out a bit last night and it was just a bit too sporadic for me; I'm sticking with Dragon Island!!!

And yes, that was the Supremacy game.  I was having a great time with it but now I'm kind of stuck on one map with a giant turtle who just kicks the crap out of me.

I haven't tried it yet, but Knights of Pen & Paper looks really really promising.  Basically, it's a game simulating pen & paper gaming of the D&D era.  You have little warriors go through adventures, but you also try to upgrade the table you're playing on.  Or your couch.

It's "expensive" at $2, with no demo or free version, but I think I'll buy it sight unseen just from the concept and good initial buzz.

I'll probably wait until the weekend, just in case of a price drop.  Their other games do go up and down a lot.

No price drop but I got it anyway.  Pretty fun but I wish the classes had more skills.  Only 4 seems awfully low and makes advancement kind of boring.  Yet it's pretty addicting and a fun diversion.

I was just about to buy it when I saw an article (on BGG, IIRC) that wanted to really like it, but found it too grindy.  I still want to try it, though, so I may get it anyway.

Arc Squadron looks pretty damn cool.  I'm typically not big on space shooters, but might have to give this one a shot.  TA gave it a great review as well

I was actually just about to post in here about it.

It's really impressive.  The polish is just top-notch.  And it's a lot of fun.

And the guys are very cool who made it.  I missed the $.99 launch price because of the hurricane.  I sent them an email, suggesting they should have a temporary sale soon for folks who missed the window like I did.  They wrote back saying there were no plans to have another sale, but gave me a free code!  And then they dropped the price to $.99 again anyway.

Got a great review from Slide2play.com.  Will probably grab it today.

I've also been playing Word Wonders:  Tower of Babel.  It's an RPG/Scrabble hybrid that is quite fun.  Gets really grindy, but plenty of value for a buck.

It's pretty addicting but it is one of those annoying games that is not FTP but uses the same mechanic of taking real $ to boost in game $ to make life easier/speed things up.  I don't mind spending on something I like but this game handles it poorly imo.  The game uses one in game currency for everything.  Killing monsters and completing quest give you some with items that can boost it you can find as well.  Also, since you can typically pick how many monsters to fight at a time (sounds weird but for most of the quest you can do this)to make the fight easier/harder rewards are increased accordingly.  However, you have to use this gold to buy everything from new armor, potions, items for your gaming room/tabletop, and even character slots.  Yep, the first two are free and then it takes and increasing amount of in game currency to unlock additional seats at the gaming table.  I can deal with that but the blacksmith one drives me crazy.  So a tier one item (only one item per class)cost 71 gold to get a chance to roll a 20 sided for.  Starts at 35% success rate with a level 1 blacksmith (can be leveled finding items in game).  Gets slightly better each level like 5% or something.  Items can be found that increase this chance as well but again in 1-2% pts that  I have seen to level 18.  So it can take 3 chances sometimes at 71 gp a pop to get him to make the item.  I can even deal with that.  However, here is the kick in the balls.  It now takes 6 real life hours for the crappy blacksmith who just took 3 chances to make said item for you.  Of course he would be willing to speed things up for you at double the entry fee, so 142 additional gold and you can have it right now.  Felt like getting taxed 3 times trying to leave the store buying a shirt.  The in game gold does not come quickly especially at low levels.

Enough bitching!  It is fun and funny and a bit quirky.  The whole PNP RPGing/LARPing thing is an interesting and original twist and takes what would be a subpar rpg and makes it more.  Combat and leveling is standard affair but tactics open up as you get more character slots/players.  Oh and good news about the above is that earned gold carries over from game to game as do any items purchased for the gaming table/room/DM.  You will most likely be starting over after level 15ish or so as more players you can start with will unlock.  That is if you were like me and dropped $2 for some in game gold to get a full party early.  It is grindy but in small spurts of gameplay not so bad.  I played a ton over this last weekend and do not regret the purchase or extra couple bucks I spent.

Enough bitching!  It is fun and funny and a bit quirky.  The whole PNP RPGing/LARPing thing is an interesting and original twist and takes what would be a subpar rpg and makes it more.  Combat and leveling is standard affair but tactics open up as you get more character slots/players.  Oh and good news about the above is that earned gold carries over from game to game as do any items purchased for the gaming table/room/DM.  You will most likely be starting over after level 15ish or so as more players you can start with will unlock.  That is if you were like me and dropped $2 for some in game gold to get a full party early.  It is grindy but in small spurts of gameplay not so bad.  I played a ton over this last weekend and do not regret the purchase or extra couple bucks I spent. 

Sums up my thoughts exactly.  I like nearly everything about the game except for the ridiculous blacksmith wait time.

In Knights of P&P, is there a way to get rid of party members or change their class?  I just unlocked the Hunter class, but can't for the life of me figure out how to get rid of or switch the class of any of my existing party members.  The Paladin is completely worthless, and I'd like to replace him with something.

I believe in the castle north of the Default City, there is a shadowy character who can dump characters for you.

For the Dragon Island Blue fans, I think I've found something just as addictive, or at least comparable.  It's like DIB mixed with Puzzle quest, called Puzzle and Dragon.  Similar collecting type of game, where you can use lesser monsters to fuse into your main team, but the combat is gem matching based like Puzzle Quest instead of like Pokemon.  The graphics are really crisp and look fantastic on the Mini.  Only downside is it uses a stamina system like some of those other time based games, so it plays best in small bursts.  I believe it's free to try.

Puzzle Craft is awesome. Totally addictive and a matching game that actually offers a reason to continue matching. I love it.

I'm either really good at Fairway Solitaire or no one else plays it.  I have eight of the All-Time records.

I suck at it and have 15 of the all-time records. I'm pretty sure that these "records" aren't really comparing you to everyone playing the game.

I guess not.  Especially since there's a trophy for holding 10 of them at a time.

I'm still hooked on Puzzle and Dragons.  Would never have predicted this would be the one to hook me, but for whatever reason it has.  Definite similarities to Dragon Island Blue/Pokemon, a little bit of Dragon Vale and Puzzle Craft/Puzzle Quest.  The collection and upgrading aspects are well done, but the core "match 3" gameplay/combat coupled with the strategy/risk factor involved with limited "stamina" make for an all around fun experience.  Unlike other match 3 games, you can move pieces anywhere on the board, which would seem to be a bit "overpowered" - but it works.  There are 5 colors + health hearts, and depending on what you've chosen your team make up to be, successful combat can become highly dependent on how well you balance your team against the colors of mobs that you are fighting as well as for what colors show up to play and how you play them.  It's definitely one of those games that seems exceedingly easy and simple at first but gradually becomes more complex.  You can play completely free if you so desire, in fact it's probably more fun that way.

It came out this week, and I'm surprised at how entertaining The Bowling Dead is, too.

I'm about 75% done with Pen and Paper RPG (first playthrough anyhow) but this is on my radar and I will grab it soon.
