Ninja Rain

Duck And Dodge Like Your Life Depends On It With Ninja Rain

I’ve never much cared for the rain. I know this is hardly an original line of thought, but I fear my particular aversion was bred into me. My mother and uncle have an almost allergic reaction to the stuff, with many a family walk being fraught with tension as ominous grey clouds gathered in the [More...]

Marble Mountain

Indiana Jones and the Mountain of Marbles

There’s been a couple of duff entries into the Indiana Jones film series, not least of all 2008’s catastrophic alien outing.

49 Tiles: Perfect Combination of Fun and Intellect

Perched precariously atop a barstool belonging to a cramped, smoky dive in the middle of Kyoto, Japan, I squared up against the Stetson-wearing Tonny, owner and bartender of the Geronimo Western themed tavern. Our chosen field of combat was Connect Four. Garth Brooks’ greatest hits filled the room. The night was young. The stage was [More...]

Make It

Make It for Teachers and School ‘Edu-tainment’ App Passes with Flying Colours

The portmanteau ‘edutainment’ is apparently a card carrying member of the Merriam-Webster dictionary. This came as news to me, but it is in fact the perfect summation of Planet Factory Interactive’s new educational software ‘Make it for Teachers and School‘, developed for iPad. With a striking number of customisations and options available, ‘Make it’ attempts [More...]
