Our World Game – Places – The Pier & Wonderland

Remember going to the Pier when you were a kid? Yeah the great big wooden platforms that stand in the sea? Come on the ones Britain is leaving to rot! So, so, sad, anyway you’ll be glad to know there’s one in Our World, accept this one isn’t stood in the sea it’s floating in the sky! And unfortunately there are no chip shops or arcade machines to play on (sorry I tell a lie it looks as though there is but it’s yet to open). There are however, two pretty cool things to do at the pier.

The first place to checkout is Snaps. The Snaps Booth lets you take photos of you and your friends in front of a selection of different backdrops. Unfortunately only three people are allowed in the booth at any one time so large group photos are not possible, but hopefully the Our World team will look to change this. Once the pictures are taken they are stored away in your photo album so you can check them out at a later date. For free players your photo album is limited to ten pictures but for paying players your album is virtually limitless!

The second activity on offer at the Pier is the SkyScope. It’s pretty much your typical seaside scope except this one doesn’t demand excessive fees for a ten second peak at the sea. In fact you won’t see any sea from this scope what you can see though is the “Down World”. Down World is essentially their world (anyone who isn’t playing Our World), it’s the world the Our World gamers don’t want to know about, you know the world with all those boring meetings where people sit talking about boring subjects! Anyway try it yourself the next time you’re at the pier. There are all sorts of funny notes attached to various buildings in the Down World that make for amusing reading.

That’s it for the Pier would you believe. The place gives the impression it’s under construction and I’m sure new activities are in the works. I’d personally like to see fairground rides in Our World; you know the old classics like dodgems, the horses, perhaps a cheap can thrower thrown in for good measure! Oh and not forgetting the doughnuts, you can tell I’ve been on too many trips to the seaside, can’t you?
When you hear the name Wonderland you know it’s going to be a pretty wacky place to go to. You won’t be disappointed. If you’ve ever seen the movie Charlie and the Chocolate Factory you will know what I am talking about and no I’m not talking about the crummy version with Johnny Depp in! Yes Wonderland is Our World’s version of Willy Wonkers chocolate factory!

Upon arrival in wonderland you are surrounded by gigantic pieces of candy, lucky charms and colourful crystals sticking out of the ground. It’s a pretty impressive sight and it’ll make you hungry if you haven’t eaten, I’m getting hungry just writing about it!

There are three places you to go visit in Wonderland and my favourite of the three is Cake Mania. Cake Mania as the name implies is a pretty crazy place to hang out, but I bet it’s not what you’d expect. In Cake Mania you’re not there to eat cake I’m sorry to say, however you can choose a cake on offer. Yes it sounds confusing let me explain further. Each cake has its own costume that comes with it, so when you order a cake you’re not really ordering a cake but a costume to wear. There are four costumes in total but my favourite is a pink bunny rabbit costume, I won’t spoil it by revealing what the other three are. So cake mania is really just a wacky place to dress up at no cost (a rarity in Our World), with your friends.

The other two places to check out are Enchantments (candy, charms and fairies that follow you around) and Sugar Star (clothes and furniture), both are shops and have their own unique flavour of items to purchase.
Cake Mania and the shops are not the only entertaining things about wonderland it’s probably the most scenic of all places to walk around. So I’d suggest once you are done dressing up and shopping you go for a walk and marvel at the fantastic surroundings, like I said earlier though try not to work up too much of an appetite, or if you can’t help it have some food on hand!

Aiport Mania – First Flight – Game Review

Airport mania first flight is another in the series of hectic action games, however, this time you find yourself in the seat of an air traffic controller. This time it is flights at risk, so you better have your brain well in gear and your clicking finger to the ready.

In all airport mania levels you have a bird’s eye view of a runway, and your goal is to be a successful air traffic controller, so that means effective landing, loading, refuelling and everything in-between.

Like all games that offer one, the only place to start is the tutorial. This tutorial is light hearted and will allow you to get to grips with the structure and of the game, without being dropped straight in at the deep end.

One of the main differences between this game and others like it is the ability to gain combos. The higher your combo ranking the more money you will receive. Remember though do the job effectively before you do it quickly, never the other way around.

On this game the planes are colour coded and this helps to direct them into their gates. If you have two purple planes on the ground and only one purple gate, then you can store the other purple plane in the waiting area, this will delay the rate at which it becomes unhappy. Remember it is not only the passengers that get upset the planes do too!

When you get into the game itself, you will see four targets, to progress through the levels you will need to reach the basic target at a minimum. On top of the basic target you have the expert, master and supreme targets, the higher you get the more money you earn.

Just like an airport there will also be different types of planes, some are content to remain on the ground for a long time, others get impatient remarkably quickly, it is imperative that if you want to score highly you deal with grumpy planes quickly.

Of course with all games in this genre, you can upgrade specific items. One of the essential upgrades in airport mania brings you more waiting areas. This might not look imperative at the level you are on but you have to think ahead.

When you complete a stage all of your upgrades will disappear, however, unlike your upgrades you do carry your money over, so if you find that you may be able to complete the next level without an upgrade then do not get one for the sake of it, keep your money in the bank and you will have an easier task at a later stage.

Like many of the other time management games, you will find that you do not get bored in a hurry, and this is always an exceptional quality for games to have. There are a lot of points I have not even begun to uncover in this review, these are just some of the fundamental points that will help you along the way. The only way to become an expert at a game like this is practice, so what are you waiting for?

What Are the Top 3 Flash Games of All Time?

The Flash games that are sweeping the internet are, in many cases, a come-back of other, older games that many of us loved and played from the time we could hold that joystick. You’re not required to use one of those these days, with flash game mania literally sweeping the world.

What are the top 3 flash games of all time? That depends of course on who you’re asking. Everyone has their personal favorites but some seem to really stand out in nearly every list that you’re going to find on the internet. Flash games are popular there is no getting around it but some are more than popular, they are literally a craze.

The top three flash games of all time, according to the experts (who may or may not have lost jobs over them) are these:

Bejeweled- switching the places of the various gems you make rows, columns, or parcels of gemstones that match, which removes them from the playing grid. They are replaced by other gems. The difficultly rises as the game progresses. Many of us played this on our PC in recent years, but the advent of the online flash game makes it even harder to get away from.

According to the experts at CNET, Chingam is the second most addictive game online and we’re inclined to agree. While no one seems to know where this one came from it certainly qualifies as addictive.

Number three has to be Desktop Tower Defense. The addictiveness level is extremely high because its a way to relieve your frustrations as you’re defending your tower while safely sitting on your sofa or at your desk.
