[Tips for beginner witches] Read ingredient labels

Always read ingredient labels before opening any recipient. Many witches had suffered unpleasant surprises because not to follow this simple rule. And if you can afford it, buy good quality ingredients (Ollivanders brand is excellent), this can also help to avoid some disasters, for instance, some ingredient makers don’t detach the bat wings from the actual bat just to save a few cents… and that, believe me, can be a terrible problem for you.

[Tips for beginner witches] Buying ingredients

When you go to your nearest magic shop to buy ingredients, remember that proper etiquette is very important and try not to argue with the shopkeeper. He knows you are a powerful witch, but he also knows better than anyone what ingredients you need to cook a perfect potion, so keep a good relation with him.

BONUS: Seducing him is not an option to pay less for the ingredients, they usually wear magic glasses to avoid such deceptions.

Indie Game: Alien Bang Bang

Developed by a small team (Game Changer), Alien Bang Bang is a classic shoot’em up with good retro graphics and a classic but effective mechanic. But what makes it really special is how controls have been designed: you rotate your mobile clockwise or anti-clockwise to move your spaceship right or left, and tap the screen to shoot. At first it’s a bit hard but when you get used of it, you realize how clever the design is. Add this to the good visuals and the amazing music and you will have a game you don’t want to miss.

Indie Game: Time Pirates

A few days ago, here at Tormentes basecamp, we had an informal chat about how marvelous would be a game that allow us to destroy structures and buildings in order to inflict damage to our targets. And just a couple of days later we found Time Pirates, a game that do exactly that!

Time Pirates is a 3D game built over the Project Anarchy engine, and for those who don’t know about this engine, only tell you that Havok is behind the project and it shares some of the same technologies used in Assassin’s Creed 4, Halo 4 and Skyrim.

In Time Pirates you are, of course, a pirate, and as any good pirate, your main goal is to loot as many locations as you can. Only equipped with your loyal cannon and sailing your good old boat, you’ll arrive to your first shore and then it’s when the fun starts. The mechanics are simple to get but hard to master: every location have a few structures where your enemies are hiding, so point your cannon to their weak spots and demolish them in order to eliminate your targets.

The game is divided in several levels of increasing difficulty, and an in-game economy has been implemented, which means you’ll get some money every time your pass a level and you can use it to buy improvements for your cannon and boats. Different types of ammunition, some special weapons, hard bosses, time travelling, a challenging leaderboard and many other surprises make of this a very enjoyable game which will keep you in front of your mobile screen for many hours.

Indie Game: Vampire Smasher

Vampire Smasher is the first game of a little indie studio called “I don’t remember games”, and as their founders told us, this original name has its own history: it was chosen after the fact that no one remember a little studio name even after playing many hours with games produced by them. So they decided to save some worries to their players and if they don’t remember, well, it’s not a problem because that’s exactly their name.

Vampire Smasher

In Vampire Smasher you are attacked by waves and waves of vampires and to clear a level you must smash’em all.  Be ready to tap frenetically your mobile screen and see tons of blood! You can also use cool (but limited) special powers which allow you to block your enemies advance, fire them up and many other cruelties.

The game is very different from others of its kind and loaded with many interesting features that have surprised us

  • First, instead an endless game like it is common in this genre, you’ll find many levels of increasing difficulty which also can be translated as countless hours of fun.
  • Stars, yes, every time you finish a level and according to how well you cleared it, a few stars will be given to you. Try to collect them all!
  • And our favorite one, bosses!! To pass certain levels you have to fight with a big bad guy. Honestly, in this kind of games, we’ve never seen anything like that before. And we love it!

In conclusion, a very funny game with cool graphics and good music which will give you a good fun for a long time. Besides that, it’s very different from other of its kind, which it’s always a plus and a reason to play it.

So if you want to have a good time, download it for free from Google Play. And don’t forget to check the developer web out to find interesting facts about this addictive game.
