About This Place

First started in late 2007, Kasey's Mobile Game Review (then just a regular feature of Kasey's Korner) started as a simul-post between here and IGN. Later I realized there's no reason to post it twice, when I can use the traffic on my own site. so, here we are, in 2010, and the mobile game industry has grown a bit. What do you think?

Preview of some upcoming reviews...

Diamond Islands (Digital Chocolate) -- another no-timer puzzler, this one involves rotating a totem around islands while touching various "diamonds". Hard to describe, but easy to pick up, it's surprisingly SLOW to load on my handset... And the loading screen trivia gets VERY old as it repeats far too soon... At least the game itself is challenging...

Scene It? Movie (Namco) -- based on the DVD game, this mobile version has over 1000 questions and seasonal downloadable question set for you to challenge your friends in group mode as well as test your own silver screen knowledge, from directors to actors and actresses to movie posters and much more. Correct answers, streaks, and fast fingers are essential here.

Monopoly: Here and Now (EA) -- based on the updated Monopoly from Parker brothers, all the places, utilities, and such have been upgraded to modern versions. Even the car has been upgraded to a hybrid. However, it's really the same game. Up to 4 can play, and 3 of those can be AI (three different difficulty levels available!) The objective of course is to drive the other players out of business by making them pay exorbitant rents whenever they land on your properties. That never changes. However, inability to save game doomed an otherwise excellent diversion.
