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?

Previews of some more mobile games

NASCAR 09 Mobile (EA Sports) -- how can a franchise go BACKWARDS? NASCAR 09 tries to be bigger and better, but ended up WORSE. Cars are LESS responsive, sound effects are WORSE (all the "crunch" sounds all the time), collision detection is MUCH worse (cars actually go THROUGH each other, I swear). They do seem to have more track, and they let you play the entire season instead of just "The chase". However, forget this turkey and stick with NASCAR 07 mobile. (See my review of NASCAR 07 earlier)

Afterworld: Global Contact -- sounds very cool, about the world after 99% of the humans disappeared and all high-energy devices went kaput, probably due to EMP or something. They call it "the Fall", and you are one of the survivors in one of the various cities around the world... But this is NOT a RPG. This is just the background for some relatively dumb action puzzles where you dodge AI pieces with dubious "AI". Sounds cool, plays dumb. Forget the game and watch the cool video chapters on Verizon VCAST video instead.

The Oregon Trail -- yes, the old classic makes its appearance on the mobile. In Easy mode, resting for a day or two can cure disease and mend broken bones. Else you can pay for medicine... if you have money. Earning money on the way is difficult and should be done at every opportunity... And every choice you make can affect the rest of the trip. Have fun!

  1. I've read a similar complaint (regarding a franchise going backwards) about Worms 2008. I am a big fan of Worms 2007, so I have been waiting for 08 to hit Verizon. But an early review I read seemed to indicate that they have stripped down the weaponry in favor of better graphics and some mini games that are probably too easy to be worth much.

    Hopefully it's still worth the download.

  2. Look for a preview/review of "Worms: A Space Oddity" in a week or two.
