The Foobler Toy Makes Your Dog Work For Those Treats!

The Foobler Toy Makes Your Dog Work For Those Treats!

The Foobler Toy Makes Your Dog Work For Those Treats!

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.

Get The Classic Tomb Raider 1 Game For iOS!

Here is a chance to play the original and the best version of Tomb Raider. However, you are not going to need any classic style games consoles to get in on the action because this game has been re-released for iPhone owners and is ready right now for download for a price! Normally when a developer says classic game, we assume that it has been edited in some way to make it shorter or a faster in some way.

Nevertheless, this version of the Tomb Raider game is complete as it was, so players are able to get in on the action just as players did back in 1998! The game supports certain games controllers that work with the iPhone such as the Ace Power, Logitech Power Shell and the Moga too. Gamers will probably need it too, because this is game that will last for around fifteen hours and that is a long time to play a game on a Smartphone.

The struggle for supremacy

The struggle for supremacy When the winter draws in, you can be forgiven for not finding the idea of going outside and running around a muddy field in a pair of shorts particularly appealing. It ranks alongside the notion of swimming in shark-infested waters or having to eat only steamed broccoli and brown rice for the next month!

Given that the coming winter is anticipated to be a particularly harsh one, you could be doing even more gaming than usual over the next few months, which could mean that the time is right to invest in a new console and that will mean experienced gamers revisiting the age old debate – PlayStation or Xbox?

Whatever you choose in the end, the truth is that the nature of gaming in changing and consoles have to do a lot more than beat one another on the graphics front to draw our attention.

Interestingly, a number of independent studies have shown that more of us than ever before are doing what is known as “triple screening”: the practice of using a mobile phone and laptop or tablet at the same time as watching television.

This could tell us that no one device is currently good enough to properly capture our attention, and that we need  something fresh, new and exciting to keep us interested.

Step forward the PS4 and the Xbox One. The struggle for supremacy between Sony and Microsoft in the console market has been an absorbing one, and it would be extremely difficult to get any sort of consensus amongst the gaming community as to which is the better.

The most recent battle, that of the PS3 against the Xbox 360, was arguably shaded by the former, which boasted a 550 MHz NVIDIA/ SCEI RSX with reality synthesiser, instead of the Xbox 360’s 500 MHZ ATI Xenos card.

Unfortunately, the extremely complex architecture and graphics of the PS3 came at the expense of loading times and other issues, making certain games a bit slow and clunky. The next challenge for Sony will be to maintain its visual strength whilst ironing these problems out.

It’s worth noting that Sony took steps to address the triple-screening phenomena with their PS Vita which can be used as a second screening, portable remote for the PS4. Considering GAME recently ran a promotion of their new tablet range by undertaking a study of 2,000 Brits to determine gaming habits and found that almost four fifths (79%) watch TV while keeping gadgets such as tablets, laptops and phones within easy reach, this decision could be a wise one.

The simple truth is that manufacturers need to do more than just create a competent console that performs well. They need a product which engages on multiple levels and allows users to satisfy their triple-screening lust. As GAME’s infographic shows, the nature of gaming now relies on multiple interactions with content and the ability to share and comment with others whilst playing or simply watching TV.

Scale Is The Game That Resizes Everything!

This is Scale a game that is a little bit like Half Life, you have a weapon that resembles the gravity gun! Except in this case instead of moving objects you are able to resize them in order to get through the game.

Scale Is The Game That Resizes Everything!

It is interesting how familiar this game feels and yet it is a completely new game from the pen of Steve Swink! The idea is to get through game, but you need to realise that not everything is what it seems, you have to explore!

Scale Is The Game That Resizes Everything!

The weapon helps because you are able to navigate around the new game world and when an obstacle gets in the way, you will be able to shrink or enlarge an object so that it is able to assist you to get where you need to go.

You can get a copy of the game from just $25 or £16, which seems like a great deal! After all there are not many cool games around that cost so little and yet offer so much in return, such as moving through a world of unexplainable proportions.

To get racing there is a starter kit that has two cars, the track, chargers and tyre cleaner! Each player will need either an iPhone 4S or newer, an iPod touch (5th generation or newer), an iPad 3 or newer or even the iPad mini.

Blackbar Its A Game With An Edge!

 

When you first see this, it looks like someone does who just does not want their identity known, as the photos appear with a black bar across the features. However, in fact, this is a game that mixes censorship and text together in a dark moody looking game. It is safe to say that this game is going to be very frustrating, but isn’t that the sort of game that we want?

This is how the Blackbar game is played according to the designer;

Blackbar is a text game: a sci-fi story of a dystopian future told through the medium of word puzzles. Reminiscent of text adventures and interactive fiction, it has a unique mechanic centred around the concept of censorship. Censorship is frustrating, but the human spirit can beat that frustration by turning it into a game.

The Blackbar text game app is available to owners of iOS devices from iTunes for $2.99 (£1.99).
