App Review: Solitaire World Free

To play solitaire means one would be playing on their own with only the deck of cards as their adversary. Whether you’re playing on your desktop or with a tangible deck, games under the solitaire title requires a player’s focus and intent to win.

Though I enjoy playing the four-decked solitaire on my computer when a boring afternoon calls for it, firing up the mean machine sometimes is too tedious and distracting. Good thing there’s Solitaire World Free I can now play on my Android phone!

Ababab Sliding Puzzle: Align the tiles

Through the years and constant fails, I have come to terms that solving a Rubik’s Cube is not a fair game for me. Apparently, there’s only so much brain twisting madness that I could tolerate and though there are “cheats” on finishing that wicked of a cube, my mind almost always dozes off attempting to learn the trick. And as I continuously pull out halfhearted efforts on achieving success with a Rubik’s Cube, I might as well practice with an app that sorta has the same mechanics.

Oh yes, people, here’s another brain teasing Android app that will get your mind juice up and running! Tagged as Ababab Sliding Puzzle, this simple game can test how you can bring to a harmonious row a mix and mash of pictures.

Easy A-B-Cs with Bubbo Pop!

Children in their early years are receptive to what their superiors (i.e parents, teachers, and siblings) are offering them. From simple gestures, habits, and even way of thinking, they can easily adapt and make the influence of others as their own. The same thing goes for educating them. Just like everybody else, repetition makes everything seem easier and it can also enhance one’s comprehension by creating patterns of what they see. Remembering the days when my mother cuddles up to me every single night, a booklet in hand, teaching me the alphabet in my own phase, I now see the essence of her continuous effort to make everything park in my brain. It was effective, though. Because I became a bookworm, then.

Since toddlers of today would prefer browsing through a smart phone rather than a book, then it might be better to teach them through an application instead! With this compelling application called Bubbo Pop, kids will have a tighter grasp on the alphabet in a jiffy! Take a look at this iOS app review to learn more about this “kiducational” software!

Color Fusion: Match the colors

Brain-bending puzzles need not have complex rules. It’s better to have the players scratch their heads off because of a frustrating challenge rather than have them breeze through simple puzzles once they’ve caught up with the whole gist. Not naming any apps, but there’s this particular game I’ve been playing for months. It’s a great stress-reliever and at the same time, your logic will still be exercised. But after a couple of days or weeks of play, it became too easy. A characteristic that I doubt Color Fusion will adapt in the long run.
