PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Brogue

Brogue 2

Roguelike games are hitting big in the App Store right now, and more the better in my opinion. I love hacking my way through dungeon after dungeon, picking up loot and searching for hidden passageways. That moment when you are just about to die and loose all of your stuff, but manage to kill the monster and swill a healing potion just in the nick of time is the most exciting moment in a game.

Brogue is a roguelike game that really takes things back to yesteryear. It was developed using ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange), which basically means the characters, monsters, and rooms are represented by letters and symbols. While the rest of the game-making world has moved onto the most advanced graphics possible, this little ditty takes its cues directly from the original game that spawned the genre, “Rogue.”

Apple Reportedly in Talks to Buy Beats Electronics for $3.2 Billion – Buy Why?

Beats

I have been struggling with the rumors that Apple is going to buy Beats Electronics. I have never bought a set of Beats headphones because they represent everything I hate about companies that rely on a brand so they can grossly overcharge for a mediocre product. The truth is, however, that I recently used a pair of their headphones and they are actually pretty good and Beats Electronics has also proven that they can play the streaming game with their recently released music service. Maybe this rumored deal makes more sense than I originally thought.

SEGA Brings Popular Coin-Dozer ‘Game Dragon’ Coins to iPad and iPhone

Dragon Coins 1

When I was a kid, I loved playing those quarter pushing games in arcades. There would sit, this huge pile of quarters with at least 40 of them resting precariously on the edge of the platform. I just knew I could get all of them to fall if my quarter would land just right before being pushed toward the pile, which it never did. The fun of coin dozer games can be relived in digital form with SEGA’s hit game Coin Dragon. For the first time ever, the game is now available on the iPad and iPhone.

Apple Back on Top of J.D. Power Tablet Owner Satisfaction Survey

JD Powers 2014 tablet satisfaction survey 1

For three years now, J.D. Power has been conducting surveys regarding tablet owner satisfaction. For the first time in the three years, overall tablet satisfaction has declined. The main reason for disillusionment from consumers is attributed to ease of operation due to navigation features and functions changing from last year to this. Apple is back on top again after a controversial drop from the top spot last year. Just like last year, Apple scored “among the best” in four out of five categories.
