Review: Little King’s Story

“At the heart of Little King’s Story lies a deeply enticing kingdom simulation element that lets you add layer upon layer of cool expansions to your budding empire. Between enhancing your conquering capabilities, beefing up your command prowess, diversifying career roles for your peasants, and generally improving the quality of life for those under your command, there are a lot of different angles to tackle as you grow. Fortunately, the management aspect of the game is easily handled through a few simple menus accessed in and around your throne room. As satisfying as it is to carefully decide on the construction of new buildings and other improvements, nothing will ever get done if you simply sit around on your kingly backside all day. Alpoko starts out as a tiny village with few inhabitants and meager resources. That gradually changes as you venture out beyond your borders to explore, kick butt, and amass sizeable quantities of booty.”

Free Bytes: Little Wheel

“Once upon a time in a mechanical world of small living robots, a catastrophic mishap at the power generation station sends a rolling blackout across the realm. Powered only by a once-constant supply of electricity, the metal inhabitants drop where they stand and enter a lifeless slumber for the better part of 10,000 years. Even after such a long time in disuse, all hope is not lost for the robotic world. A fortuitous and well-timed lightning strike wakes one of the sleeping bots. The power generator is not far away, and it’s time to wake up your metal friends.”

Review: Miami Law

“Anyone who watches TV can attest to the fact the dual good cop/bad cop approach to law enfrocement is a staple plot element torn straight out of the pages of police drama 101. Hudson apes this and many other familiar crime show shticks in its new action/adventure hybrid on the DS. With a cheesy title and appropriately matching subject matter, Miami Law could easily be mistaken as a handheld adaptation of a long-forgotten TV drama from the 80s or early 90s. Being built on a foundation of numerous cop show clichés strung together doesn’t do much to help the game shake this designation.

Free Bytes: Judith

“Every once in awhile we come across a game that elicits a puzzled “what the hell” response, only it’s usually in a good way. Judith, a brief first-person adventure with great storytelling and a heavy narrative element, is definitely one of those games. Unfortunately, it’s also the kind of game that’s very hard to offer any detailed description of without completely spoiling the fun. Even if it is somewhat tricky to discern exactly what has transpired when all is said and done, Judith is an intriguing tale of romance with a dark twist. It’s short, satisfying, and more than a little mysterious, and it’s that sense of mystery that will keep you affixed to your PC screen throughout its brief duration.”
