Addicted to Splode


The other day Splode went free and I downloaded it without the usual research I do on games. I wasnt dissapointed. I dont think I would have paid for it, but its still a lot of fun – and beautiful!

It loads into a greyscale nighttime scene. The goal of each level is to pop “splodes,” which cause any surrounding Splode to, um, ‘splode. These chain reactions need to, er, ‘slode enough Splodes to meet the requirements for that level. As you rack up, uh, ‘sploded splodes, the scenery begins to gain color; flowers bloom and trees grow. Beating the level gets you a nice visual reward. It’s a cool twist on these style of games.

I’m currently stuck on level 53- I think it’s 53… I’m stuck in the 50’s somewhere. My daughter has helped me a few times by “popping the bubbles” and she’s not half bad.

The gameplay is really simple but the artwork is pleasing to look at.  As it exists now, it’s a good free game.  I can’t believe people paid 99 cents, or event 2 dollars for this, it’s great, but not that great.  The developer says new stuff is coming, either way, I’m really having fun.

Real lenses for your mobile cameraphone


I’ve seen cases and other lenses that can attach to the phone that add effects like fish eye and wide angle.  These don’t look as easy to use as the case system or even the magnetic system but darn it if they aren’t cheap. A Jackson will get you about 4 lenses. I’m going for the fish eye, wide angle, polarized, and star burst lenses.

According the review on iPhoneography, they’re OK.  Couple that review with the actual cost and I can justify the $20.  Browse over to the review and check out his sample shots.

Apple iPhone user base on Flickr


I thought for sure that the 3GS and 4 would have started to take over the 3G’s spot as top camera phone on Flickr.  Interesting to see that the 3G actually increased its user base while the younger brothers are either steady or dropping.
