Comments

wild_west_hangman

When I was living in Korea teaching English, all the kids wanted to play hangman. It’s a fairly morbid game but it’s a big part of Western culture. Now you can play hangman on your BlackBerry and the game offers a trivia twist.

Wild West Hangman combines the original pen and paper game, with 800 trivia questions in 10 different categories.

Purchase Wild West Hangman for BlackBerry for $4.99 until June 20th.

Nintaii v.1.6.1 for BlackBerry Storm Reviewed!

Comments

Some of you may remember us mentioning Nintaii by Mobigloo back in October when we discussed the finalists for the BlackBerry Developer Challenge. ‘Nintai,’ a Japanese Kanji that means “patience” offers users a great gaming experience from start to finish. More recently, I also reviewed this app back in November, giving it a healthy and well deserved 4 out of 5. Well, Nintaii now comes equipped to handle the awesome power of the BlackBerry Storm, making use of the Storm’s accelerometer and huge screen. Sweet.

My boy Kevin is always spending too much time with games on his BlackBerry. It seems he’s uncovered video of a new BlackBerry game called Marble Trap. Much like Nintaii, Marble Trap takes advantage of the BlackBerry Storm’s accelerometer for a smoother gameplay experience.

Nintaii for BlackBerry - first accelerometer game for BlackBerry

Comments

Fresh off of our review of Nintaii for BlackBerry, where BBCool JB gave it a stellar 4 out of 5, I was contacted today by the fine folks at Mobigloo. They wanted to let me know that Nintaii was now available for BlackBerry Storm users - and is likely the first BlackBerry Storm game to make use of the accelerometer. You can check out the video above demonstrating Nintaii’s addictive gameplay, or read the review below. I can’t wait to see more games which make use of the BlackBerry Storm’s potential.

Nintaii v.1.0.9 Reviewed!

Nintai

Though I wasn’t a big fan of their Poker Odds Calculator Pro, I really like Mobigloo’s Nintaii for BlackBerry. Some of you may remember us mentioning Nintaii back in October when we discussed the finalists for  the BlackBerry Developer Challenge. ‘Nintai,’ a Japanese Kanji that means “patience” offers users a great experience from start to finish - if you can, that is. It’s easy to install, and there’s virtually no setup. The controls are easy to learn and operate. And, there are about 100 different levels (of increasing difficulty), so with a little perserverance this game may in fact teach you all about the meaning of patience.

New York Times Crosswords for BlackBerry Reviewed

Comments

Our mobile entertainment sister site, QuicklyBored, has published a review of the Magmic’s New York Times Crosswords for BlackBerry. We’re huge fans of crossword puzzles at BBCool HQ, and the NYT crossword puzzle is the best around. From the review, it seems like Magmic’s version lives up to its namesake:

The puzzles themselves are pretty difficult. Being officially licensed by The New York Times, the game does a great job of mimicking the crossword experience which also means they’re pretty difficult for a first time crossword player. Although with a simple, elegant user interface and three different puzzle views, you can get into the game quickly.

Another great feature of this game is that it offers daily news headlines from NYTimes.com. That, combined with daily puzzles, you’ve completely got your NYT fix for the day.

Right now, the New York Times Crosswords for BlackBerry is exclusive to AT&T, but will be available across all channels come January 1st. You can read the full review below.

Magmic launches Chuzzle for BlackBerry, offers free game giveaway

Comments

Hot on the heels of an interview discussing how much BlackBerry users like to game, Magmic announced today the BlackBerry release of Chuzzle, a puzzle game of the cute and cuddly variety. The whole point of the game is to match 3 Chuzzles together to make them explode (tragic, I know, but puzzle games are often cruel). Customary to Magmic’s AAA polish, Chuzzle comes with four different game modes and allows you to do cool stuff like earn trophies and unlock secret games.

Originally from the people who made the popular Bejeweled and Zuma games, Chuzzle has a cool 1960’s Star Trek, tribble vibe, which we dig. Expect a review from us soon.

Go here to learn more about Chuzzle.

UPDATE: Our friends at Magmic just let us know that if you sign up to their Bplay newsletter, you get a free Magmic game! Go check it out and tell them the ‘Cool sent ya.
