PadGadget’s Flashback Friday: Star Trek Trexels

Star Trek Trexels 2It’s Friday again and I am ready for the weekend. For some reason this week has dragged on longer than I like. At least on Fridays, we get to talk about classic and retro games that we love. Last week, we told you about the launch of the classic Double Dragon Trilogy.

Disney Brings Popular Kids Virtual World Game ‘Club Penguin’ to iPad

Club Penguin 1About a month ago, I was visiting my brother and his family. My six-year-old nephew grabbed me by the arm and dragged me to the computer saying, “I have to make you a Penguin.” That was my first introduction to Disney’s hugely popular massively multiplayer online (MMO) game for kids.
