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?

PrizePlay games lets you win "tokens" for more plays, and possibly prizes. The problem is, in trying to fit in the game, they seem to have lost the meaning of the game.

You see, you have to pay "tokens" for each play, and the game is Battleship, where you lob shots at the enemy map, trying to hit ships. However, they have to throw in trivia, which has nothing to with Battleship at all. It's like playing trivia pursuit with no category limit. For every question you get right, you get to fire a shot. Miss three questions, and your game ends. The objective, is to kill ship(s) before you run out of misses. That'll get you a token and if you get more, prizes.

Verizon's free trial gives you 3 free tokens to try. Not being that good in trivia, that lasted me less than five minutes. And I managed to get ONE ship.

So all I can say about Battleships PrizePlay is it's not that much fun, unless you enjoy mixing trivia pursuit (tm) with your Battleship (tm) play. Save your money and time.

Overall rating: 4 out of 10
Pros: trivia and battleship is an interesting combo
Cons: pay per play and promise of prizes doesn't make up for lack of actual "game"
