There is no doubt that Hitman game and movies were not only successful, they were stylish and cool too. However, that was on the big screen and on a games console, so when Hitman GO was launched recently for the mobile gaming market we have to wonder how that is going to work. Well, surprisingly the developers Square Enix have opted for a slightly different look and feel for in order for it to fit in with the Smartphone and tablet sized screen. Therefore, Hitman GO is a puzzle style game based on the player making one move at a time and it is not as easy as it sounds.
The player gets all the normal goodies such as useful distractions, interesting disguises, crucial hiding spots, as well as the essential sniper rifles and of course, it would not be Hitman without a pair of those iconic Silverballers at your side. This stylish game is available from iTunes for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch with a price tag of $4.99, £2.99 or €4.49. The developers say that the Android version of this game is in development and will be launching in due course.

The game of chess is all about strategy and cunning, but actual chess sets can be quite exciting like this Star Wars based chess set. All of the characters are there, with the Rebels in gold and the Empire in silver each facing each other off across the board. This could be for show, but really you are going to want to pick your side and beat the opposition, aren’t you?

Sometimes we come across games that are so addictive that all other games are left alone gathering dust. Threes is one such game, but it used to only be available from iTunes, but now it is available from Google Play and that means Android users are able to play Threes! The game is simple and that is what makes it addictive, after all nobody wants to be playing an over complicated game while travelling home from work on the train or bus. Threes comes with a cool soundtrack and great cast of characters to play as.
Now, it seems that from the comments left, some gamers might think that this game is slow or boring so it is one of those games that might have been better with a free trail allowing the gamer to make their own mind up before parting with their hard earned cash for the full version of the game. It is just an idea, but who are we to tell the studios what to do. This is a paid for game, so you are going to have to expect to pay around $2 or £1.20 for it! It is available right now from Google Play for Android devices and from iTunes for iOS devices.
Here is something that many people are going to be interested in, it’s called the Skirmos and it is going to change your free time into cool laser tag battle zone. The Skirmos takes laser battles to the next level and beyond, you are getting a cool LCD screen, transparent plastic with cool coloured LED’s just to make the whole thing a little more impressive. It is a game of skill, cunning and who is faster to pull the trigger. Beating the competition has never so much satisfaction than doing it the Skirmos way. Weapon Up! Of course, you will have to build a team and create your own game, but you get the general idea, don’t you?
The specs of the Skirmos are pretty impressive, with an ATMEL 328p, full coloured LCD screen, with super bright infrared LED function and RF Module. There is an SD card slot, a sound card that uses both .mp3 & .wav and of course, speakers. Other cool features include the internal LED’s, infrared receivers at 38 khz and a 16 mhz clock. It is all wrapped up in a transparent plastic custom shell with a female USB port allowing data from computer to the system. Soon there will be RGB LED Grids too!
If you can see yourself creating your own laser tag game, then expect to pay around $99 for the pre ordered early version of the Skirmos.
Funny images of cats are really popular on social networking sites; in fact, just about any image of a cat almost instantly becomes popular. However, we are mainly busy and as such, we are unable to wait around for the cat to do something, we need some help! So, it is great to see that there is an app designed just for that. What we mean is Cat Snaps is an app designed for the cat, so they are able to take cool selfies all on their own with not help from us humans. Yes, finally we can see what smartphones were really design for.
The app works quite simply, the human has to start it up and place the smartphone in front of the cat. On the screen there will be a moving object such as a laser, mice, balls and insects, when the cat touches the screen the camera is activated and a new selfie has been created. Once you have a selfie it can been saved, shared or both, both is better because you never know when a cool image of a cat is needed to brighten up everyone’s day, there is nothing more amusing that cat in a selfie.

It is all too easy to give in to the dog and let them have a treat now and then, but this is not helping the dog think and play so something else is needed to bridge the gap between fun, exercise and treats! This is where the Foobler is hoping to fit in, it looks like a fancy ball and that is a good description for it. However, there is more to the Foobler than just being a ball, it is in fact a puzzle for the dog and the reward for solving it is a treat, which is great for keeping the dog active. The Foobler, comes in two colours and can be loaded up with enough treats for the whole day, which is great for keeping the dog busy when you are out. The clever thing here, is that the Foobler has a timer, so the dog cannot get all treats at once, no matter how smart the dog is they are going to have to wait.
Expect to see the Foobler this summer, but for anyone who cannot wait that long it can be pre ordered for a short time for just $45 or £28.
