Let me say that Implode is a horrible game. In theory it sounds like a great idea, but the actual implementation and game mechanics are horrible. There are many levels where I knew EXACTLY what I needed to do (via screenshots posted on the web), yet it took me 15 minutes of moving 1 bomb in basically the same spot just hoping that moving it a hair in one direction or another would trigger a different result. It doesn't make sense, it doesn't require skill, and it's definitely not fun. Avoid, and play something more fun like Pocket God.....yes it's that bad.

I'm hoping the Nokia acquisition leads to much better things for Windows Phone, but realistically, I think Microsoft will screw it up.

 

I thought Implode was decent. I am following the same screenshot guide and know what you mean about the bomb placement. On many levels where the guide was not working, I tried something completely different and it has worked, so there are multiple solutions to most levels. But yes, I agree that it does suck when you have a near perfect set-up and a block just stays barely above the blast line forcing you to replay the same level over and over again for 20 minutes. I'll agree with it being a good idea with some bad implementation.

Implode kinda sucks, but I'd take it over Pocket God still.

 

I didn't play with any screenshots or anything, I just grinded out as many achievements as I could and called it a day.

Yep. Pocket God was somewhat underwhelming. Fun for maybe the first five minutes but boring after. Here's hoping Thursday brings better deals.

 

 

Quick question, does anyone know if there is a way to backup, or transfer, game saves and text messages?

WP7 or WP8? For WP8, check here. I don't think WP7 has a way to back up text messages.

Currently, there is no way to do anything with game saves.

Hated Gameloft at first, but they've been supporting WP and increasing quality. Almost all my WP8 games are Gameloft.

Modern Combat 4 is DOTW at $2.99. Tempting. I didn't much care for the controls so it was a definite pass @ $6.99. Anyone here with firsthand experience that can comment on the campaign and/or multiplayer community?

The campaign in Modern Combat 4 is great and there is no multiplayer community. This of course is due to the poor matchmaking and lack of chat. Check out my review for more details.

 

Sucks because half the Achievements are multiplayer only. But you can quickly boost all but one or two with a friend.

At least it's a new deal of the week.  Unfortunately I can't buy WP8 games and stock them up for when I actually get the phone.

So I can understand matchmaking being much better on Android or iOS but do they support voice chat as well?

LOL. Gameloft never learn. I managed to do the "change time" trick in Six Guns. It's worthless though because of the crappy rewards and the limited inventory slots.

Yeah, the other platforms support voice chat. Thing that many developers don't understand about multiplayer modes is you have to have a lobby system in which players can sit around and hang out while they wait for new opponents. If there's no communication, a waiting player has nothing to do and thus won't wait around. They'll go do something else instead.

 

Also, iOS and Android have way more potential players AND the game goes on sale for 99 cents sometimes. Hence more people playing in the first place. But this sale is a good thing. I'd just expect to mostly have to set up matches outside of the game rather than finding a lot of public matches.

 

Modern Combat 4 is the DOTW

Hmm 1 GB of RAM? Can't get it on my phone then. I find it surprising that the sims needs more ram that Six Guns.

BulletAsylum is $1.  Not even sure I'd recommend it for that price.

 

One of these days MS is going to get another dollar from me on WP.  One of these days........

These dollar deals have been horrible of late. I should've saved the 3-4 dollars I spent on these terrible games and picked up a nice $5 game instead. I am almost ready to break down and get PvZ for full price.

Good guide. I'll have to give it a more thorough read later. I may have to purchase some gold at some point, because my current equipment is not cutting it anymore. Werewolves are just destroying me.

I'm curious what weapon you're using? I am still rocking the basic (fully upgraded) carbine. Its great for taking out normal bandits and demons, but like I said it's useless against werewolves and those metal enemies.

Thanks man. I'm using the Longshot Repeater 1887 rifle, which cost 18,500 gold if I recall. It has made life a lot easier since it does like 35 damage on most hits.

 

If you just want to grind up to a better weapon, I find the Fort Malanoche quest (lower right corner of Arizona) is pretty easy to grind. Enemies don't start appearing behind you until the 30s, so until then you're unlikely to take excessive damage. Even the Dragon Revolver is good enough to get you up to that point.

Just curious, what's the install size for Where's my Water 2?

The app states that it should be 76 MB, but when I install it, it's really 760 MB. Yeouch!
