Hiatus

February 4, 2010

Hey readers,

We will go into a quick break at the moment. We would love to continue reviewing the lesser-seen stuff in the app store, and giving you our thoughts on it, but due to certain time-constrains, we have decided to go on a little break!

We can still review your lovely gems if you wish and giving you our opinions via email or itunes, our contact details is just right at the top corner.

See yah for now!

Depict – Review

January 30, 2010

Depict is the go-to multiplayer pictionary-esque game with its impressive polish and execution. At free, it is a no-brainer grab from the app store however its success still lies in whether it has the ability to rake in constant players, which it doesn’t at the moment.

Our New Rating System!

January 29, 2010

We have finally came to a conclusion with a new rating system! We have decided to use a 4-pronged approach to summarize our reviews and impressions. The ratings aims to give a concise end to our impression, and hopefully give our readers a clearer understanding.

We will use a system of 3 hearts in our ratings. We do have a special accolade on top of getting the full 3 hearts, given only to those applications and games we find a must-buy and most deserving. When we confer this accolade, we strongly recommend our readers to check the game out!

Otherwise, here is our 3-heart review system and what each heart means

(1/3) “Worth the skip” – Our 1-heart rating means we recommend you not getting the application/game. It might not be a totally bad (*cough* shit *cough*) application or game, and there might still be merits found in the application/game. But our point is that we strongly feel that it is worth the skip for now.

(2/3) “Consider getting” – Our 2-heart rating means we feel that our readers could consider getting the application/game. We probably found some positives that make getting the game worthwhile to grab, however there are still certain areas that could be improved which is why we say consider getting for now.

(3/3) “Worth getting“” – Getting a 3-heart means we feel the application/game is worth getting! We probably feel that it stands up to its current price point, and that it is polished and well-developed – indeed worth getting!

(3/3) + apploved accolade “Must get!” – Our highest rating conferred on the site! The 3-heart + apploved accolade represents our strongest recommendation for the application/game. We feel that our readers should strongly check out this applications due to the enjoyment we had playing the application!

This rounds up out new rating system! Any comments/queries about our system, you could contact us via the comments section or email us! Sure, you can also tell us our pictures suck,😛

Changes in Reviewing

January 29, 2010

We have been pondering over this for awhile now.  Initially we have decided and stated we would not use a “rating” system because we feel it is deemed too subjective. We would instead give our reviews and impressions via our words, pictures and videos.

However, after much debate, we decided that perhaps a “rating” system might pave way for better review system. While words, pictures, and videos can convey majority of our impressions of the game, clarity of our review will definitely be better if we do introduce a rating system. We will still stick with our normal reviewing standards, however we would introduce a rating system. Again, we wouldn’t judge so critically in terms of rating numbers, like Gameplay: 85/100 etc. , but rather we would have a concise rating at the end of the review.

More information on that will be finalized. We are pretty thrilled for this change too and we hope that as our readers, you will benefit from it too!
