Hey guys!!! This week Erik, Jason and Steve fight a roided out Shank and a whole lot of Vex in Destiny. Also featuring Steve.

Title: Prison Architect
Genre: Indie, Simulation, Strategy
Developer:Introversion Software
Publisher:Introversion Software
Release Date: Oct 6, 2015

Reviewed by: Rick Burnett

Prison Architect is unlike any game I’ve played before. While playing through the beta I kept thinking that there’s no way they will add more but time and time again Introversion proved me wrong. The game started out with build a prison and keep your prisoners happy. At that early stage you could set the game up and walk away nothing bad would happen. Now however if you walk away you’ll come back to a complete riot and your prison in ruins.

It was a little difficult to figure out all the features since there were so many and because there was no in game tutorial. Now that the game has been released introversion has added a campaign with five different levels, each will walk you through the basics of the game, like how to build things and how to set up your prison and get it operational. This is a big plus for any new players.

If you’re looking for a bit of a casual playing experience you can turn failure condition off which when active will fire your warden if too many people die or you end up in serious debt. You can also enable unlimited funds so you can build to your hearts content. However if you’re looking for a real challenge you can enable failure condition and gangs which will cause prisoners to attack rival gang members and they will recruit other prisoners to their gang, so it’s best to identify them and separate them from the general population. If a prisoner is just too dangerous you can put him in permanent solitary confinement. Staff members will bring them food when they need it.

No large prison is complete without a death row. The developers were worried about this feature thinking that people may just turn their prisons into a slaughterhouse but they made very strict requirements that must be met to execute a prisoner. The prisoner will have the chance to get his sentence reduced to a life sentence instead. There’s nothing you can do about that. On this note rest assured that there is no overly graphic scenes. It’s all done quite nicely and in a proper fashion. If you’re looking for a good game to kill some time or looking for a challenge Prison Architect will not disappoint.

Deconstructor Review

Posted: December 9, 2015 by TerKaDer in Game Reviews/Previews
Tags: , ,

Deconstructor
Developed By: Appscraft
platforms: Android and IOS

Reviewed By: Jason Spear

When I first started Deconstructor, it seemed like it had potential, however after just a few levels it seemed mediocre at best. The level set up made me think of Angry Birds; a game that I thoroughly enjoy, unfortunately as you progress it doesn’t challenge you in ways that are fun. The object of the game is to set explosives on the buildings and bring them down below a certain predetermined point to gain the maximum level of 3 stars. There are some levels with a line on the side of the screen and if you pass that line with any of the debris from the building it’s an automatic failure. Though it is challenging, it does not bring any fun or joy to the game. It’s just frustrating and tiresome to do the same level over and over trying to win.

Deconstructor also hits you with constant commercials and purchase opportunities. In the end I would have to say I do not recommend playing this game.
