Price is Right-Application Review
Hey, guys back in the video. This is going to be my 18th application reviews. So let’s get this one started. I have a few new apps actually for you. One of them is paid, one of them is The Price is Right which is the $2.99 download. We’ll get that one after at the very end but to start this off we will start with let me find one. I have a few new ones in here. This one, I am trying to remember what is called. Rainbow something, it’s kind of weird. It’s a different game, it’s kind of like Gold Rush Lite if you guys remember where we had to build a certain path to go over the gold but this one it’s more of you get certain pieces that are in rainbow shapes and more like curves or like straight pieces and you simply tap them and that will turn the angle of them. You guys go right there. These are examples perfectly actually.
Then you just tap them to turn the rainbow pieces and then once you create a full circle, so you completely close then. I don’t delete these pieces and try and delete as many pieces as possible. And once you delete a certain amount pieces it would go to the next level for you. So let’s do cloud number one. This is the lite version. This little sun guy will constantly just appear on new rainbow pieces all across the map but example right here. I have three so when I turn this piece. So one more turn. There is my circle and I’ll just appear, there are my points for me. The only downside about this game is, is that the pieces are actually kind of small. So if you have bigger fingers or just pretty much actually if you have fingers at all because this is really small I think.
It is kind of tough to actually touch the rainbow pieces sometimes which can be very annoying. I mean I wish it was a little bigger. I understand why. It’s not due to the fact that they try to make it more complicated by adding more able pieces on the board. It’s just kind of tough to actually try to the touch pieces you’re trying to actually hit but here is another example. I just got that. It will disappear and there we go. So that’s pretty much what it is. I'm trying to think, I'm trying to remember what is called. I'm pretty sure I just passed it. This is the lite version though. There is a paid version of the application. I do not know if I pay for that. All right here it’s called Rainbow Ruffle. I do not know if I'll pay for the actual full game but the lite version is kind of fun to mess around. So if you want to go and check that one out you will be able to see if you get the full version of it. Once again, this is called Rainbow Ruffle, a free download from the App Store.
Okay next that we have, we have Galcon Lite. This is actually pretty fun application. I'm thinking about buying the paid version but I'm not quite sure yet. What you are is it’s pretty much a split in half is that you reversed the computer and in this game, okay here we go, so we’re green. So we have 106 different guys right now. I want you to just tap the planet that you want to shoot your little spaceship over this little area of the spaceships. Tap the planet that you want to send your spaceship over with and now you can use multi planets to shoot it once and by doing this it will send to them to the great planet which are neutral planets and your object is to capture as many planets as possible. There is no time limit.
First off with the green and the enemy which is the computer is the orange. So they are trying to capture the exact same planets we are. So what’s you’re pretty much doing is just fighting see them and get the most ones or the ones there first.
So eventually you have to take over their planets like right now he’s trying to fight over the same ones that I'm getting and it’s pretty fun. This is the lite version, so it is a free application. There is a paid version of that and I'm considering buying me because it actually is a lot of fun to play. I would definitely recommend going out and trying this one because this it’s a full, it’s a blast. So there are no other apps out there like this. It’s very simple gameplay. There is nothing like complex about. This is really simple, very easy structure, very easy design. The graphics are not too amazing but they don’t need to be. It’s really it just fun, original gameplay that they are trying to push out here. So I would definitely recommend this one. Definitely the free version, go on and check out this one out. It’s called Galcon Lite.
And next we have, this has been out for awhile. I try it a while ago. It was not too big of a fan of it and then try it again and now I kind of am. It’s called MadShells Lite and you guys have also seen this. It’s like bone and cup. We hit the bottom of the cup and it pushes them around and you cannot really see where it is for a second. You just tap which one it’s going to be under. So it’s pretty much exact same play. So the balls into the middle. You still here also right here. So the cups constantly get more. They’re hitting more cups and there are more things to watch at a time. And then there is something like 10 levels in this lite version. This is the lite version but there is a paid version. Knock it about the paid version because I don’t think if it’s really worth it but yeah. When you actually get to the more in-depth levels in this game, the game can be pretty challenging because there is a lot of cups but there are also going in here like light speed and it’s pretty tough to see them all at the same time.
So yeah it’s a pretty, fun application. I would recommend going, I'm going to lite version, paid version not so sure. That’s MadShells Lite. And okay, these are all the free applications that I have for you guys here. This final one is going to be The Price is Right and I'm sure you guys all at least know what this is. If you don’t know what the application is, you know the TV shows. It’s a really fun application. It has been out for a while but it was originally like $6.00 or something like that. I don’t think it’s worth that, so the price dropped actually I think like from yesterday or the day before. And it went down $2.99 so went on and I bought I'm going to do a quick review to see if you guys will go out and buy it yourselves. You can do party games. You can do more than one person on the same system. So you can play this. I think it’s get up to four people so three other people can actually play in the iPod touch or iPhone at the same time or you can just do single player and by doing single player there's classic mode that you see on TV where if you get to somewhere and you lose and that’s what you do.
You just lost, you're done there. Nowhere really else to go and this is three strikes mode. It’s built more for the iPod Touch and iPhone so it’s your individual player. So you actually have three strikes, so you can continuously play and if you do mess up once. It makes the game more fun and it does know we have to stop and it will start over like that. So I definitely recommend doing it that way. It’s a really fun application. Its great, how they structured it together. The announcer is perfect. It gives the exact feel pretty much of the show. As you, guys see here’s the loading screen. There is a loading screen pretty much between everything that you do in this game. The loading screens are pretty short though and there's music during them so at least you know that is not going to take too long. Okay this is explaining if you have three strikes and stuff. So right now we’re in contestants’ row which is the beginning and everything is explained to you in the beginning by this announcer guy.
And for contestants’ row, it shows you a price and there's a bunch of different prices. You have won like 100 in this little video clips at a game. It’s not really old. It’s always fresh and always new. So now whether your memorizing prices actually it’s always like to stick around the game show. So this is lazy boy chair that we’re looking at that were going to bidding on. So I can skip through if you already know what you’re going to be bidding on. We are last. This is us where at down at the end. So let us see what their bids are. I would do today 638 and I go right above this person right here. We’re going to hope that I win this one, 549 fantastic we lost. Okay so yeah, like what I was saying here that is one strike to us. So like in the original TV show you have to wait for them to do it all, that’s classic mode and then you just pretty much lose.
This is three strike modes now, pretty much to start it all over again. You don’t have to go from the main menu you started. It pretty much knows they are trying to get us to have a good time. So let’s try to make sure that we get into the game. So we just lost here but still put you forward. So now, I have one strike. There is a bunch of mini games actually on the TV shows like 16 different mini games so there is this. There is the mounting guy who is at the mountain. There is Plinko. There is a bunch of different mini games for this. The only thing that stinks about it is there is no mini game button at the main menu so you can just play the mini games. You have to go through the entire show. The show is really fun but it would be nice if I just added in a little bit mini game buttons you can go and just do those individually. Cool thing about this game is it really gets you to feel like you're in the show because they used real live products like we just saw them right here. We have gone through like there is Pringle’s. There is bear.
Seriously, there is an actually real life product. These are all real things in your life, pretty fun. It is a paid application. That’s Price is Right, it will go farther. I will be doing in-depth review of it later, so stay tune for that. Sorry guys video will end here, have a fantastic day. I will talk to you later.
