    Puchi Puchi Pop Review

    On March 21, 2016

    Ahoy there me hearties! Your friendly app pirate is up again for another booty hunting adventure. Aye, we’ll be diving to Davey Jones’ locker, get some booties and escape death. Har, har, har! Don’t worry ye buckos, we’ve done that a lot of times and we survived! ‘Afore we go there, let me share with ye another app review for this game called Puchi Puchi Pop: Puzzle Game by Happy Labs. Batten down the hatches and let begin.

    It Has the Cutest Graphics

    Puchi Puchi Pop App

    Puchi Puchi Pop has colorful characters and background. There are different pets available that are all adorable. The graphics itself make it inviting because it looks fun to play. The basic gameplay would require you to connect the same characters to gain as many points as you can within a minute. Just looking at the characters would already make you feel happy because of their cuteness. Each of the characters have their own levels and they also have their own special powers that could get you to higher levels.

    Fun Background Music and Sound Effect

    The background music and sound effects are equally fun as the characters. They add life to the game and make it more enjoyable. You would feel more into it with the playful music and you’ll want to pop the pets even more when you hear that sound effect.

    It’s Social

    Puchi Puchi Pop Game

    You could connect to Facebook so you could send and receive lives with friends, as well as compete with them at the leaderboard. This would make you want to play more and score even higher, especially if you’re competitive.

    Not a Fresh Idea

    Although this free app is a fun game to play, connecting same characters is not really a new idea in the app world. Moreover, there’s a game that looks a lot like this one. If you’ve played Disney Tsum Tsum before, you’ll see a huge similarity between it and Puchi Puchi Pop. This is something that many players who played the two games notice.

    The Ups

    The graphics, background music and sound effects are all fun, which make the game enjoyable to play. It’s also free so you don’t have to spend anything to get it. In-app purchases are available, but you could always disable this option if you don’t want to accidentally purchase anything and keep playing the game without spending money. It’s easy to understand making it ideal for users of all ages.

    The Downs

    The only drawback for this app is that it’s not really a fresh idea as it’s like an imitation of the game Disney Tsum Tsum.

    The Verdict

    Puchi Puchi Pop is an easy to learn and free app that can also be addictive, especially if you are competitive and would like to beat your friends in any game. It’s fun and enjoyable with its cute and colorful graphics and lively background music and sound effects. It may look a lot like Disney Tsum Tsum, but if you enjoy that game and you are looking for an alternative, this is a great option.

    Fallout Shelter Review

    On November 19, 2015

    Fallout Shelter Icon

    Ahoy there lads and lassies! It’s me, your one and only app pirate bringing you my latest app treasure finds. Today I dove deep below Davey Jones’s locker to bring you an app that ye buckos would love. It’s called Fallout Shelter by Bethesda. Take control of your vault and ensure the happiness and safety of your dwellers. Learn more about it in this app review.

    It Has Something Fresh to Offer

    Fallout Shelter Review

    Fallout Shelter is not your usual game, although there are still some features that you would find in other apps, making it still somewhat familiar and easy to learn. The setting and plot is different as the main area is in a vault that’s situated 2,000 feet under the ground. You will have control of the vault and the people, which are called dwellers, that survived the blast that destroyed the surface where people once lived. This will be their new home now and it’s up to you how to grow it and make it successful. Like other apps, there are also items to unlock that can help you in building the vault and make it a happy, safe and comfortable place for your dwellers. Like a real community of people, you’ll also be dealing with personal relationships between couples, who can produce babies that would be a part of your vault.

    Great Graphics

    Fallout Shelter App

    The graphics of this game was really made well. It has a cartoony feel but not too much that it doesn’t look like that it was a game made for younger ones. Think of the characters in “Archie Comics”. It’s what came to my mind when I first saw the characters in this game. The animation of every character is also impressive as every one in a scene is moving, instead of just sitting or standing there until you tap on them.

    It’s Addictive

    This game can get addictive since you would feel the need to create a nice vault for your dwellers and keep on improving it. You should also get to know each of your dwellers as they have different interests and personalities. This is needed so you can keep them happy, which is part of the game. There’s so much to explore, unlock and do that’s why it’s more likely that you would feel greatly immersed in the game.

    The Ups

    Aside from being free, this app has fantastic graphics that’s pleasing to the eyes. It’s also nice how there’s so much content to explore, which makes it a game that you could play for a long time.

    The Downs

    It could take time to unlock levels and various items without in-app purchase so it could be tempting to spend real cash, although it’s still possible to continue with the game without it. Dragging and dropping items may be difficult if you have a small screen.

    The Verdict

    Fallout Shelter is a breath of fresh air in the app world where everything seems to be just a copy of the other games, just with a slight change in the looks of the items or characters. It’s fun and addictive and it would keep you playing for a long time. While it has some drawbacks, it’s still generally a nice game to play so it’s recommended that you give it a try.

    Avast ye salty Sea Dogs, it be time for another installment for one o’ me ramblings about the gaming world! Gaming be one huge part of modern culture. Everyone loves to have a title to throw around every once in a while, o’ course, not everyone can afford them. Arrrgh, it costs quite a bit of gold doubloons to make a small library o’ video games.
