Kids can get their fill of vocabulary & werewolf danger with “No ‘Wurst For Were”

An interactive storybook for kids aged 6 through 9 is exactly the sort of thing I’d tell you about if it was clever, informative and involved a werewolf. So let me tell you about No ‘Wurst For Were. (more…)

Become the terror of Werewolf Park in “Werewolf Tycoon” for Android & iOS

My mobile gaming time is split pretty evenly between Threes and Doug dug., but this week there’s a new contender for my attention: Werewolf Tycoon, a “werewolf stealth simulation game” where the goal is to devour as many people as possible without being seen… and without leaving survivors. (more…)

One Night Ultimate Werewolf

Look around you. Are there 2 to 9 people nearby? Do you have 10 minutes? Then you should probably be playing One Night Ultimate Werewolf, “a microgame of the party game Ultimate Werewolf that doesn’t need a moderator.There’s no elimination, and each game lasts about 10 minutes.” (more…)

Trailer for the baffling, delightful iOS game “The Executive”

It’s Monday. You’re at work, dealing with reptiles or float homes or glitchy compilers or whatever keeps you busy all day. Maybe you have a coffee. Externally, you’re at peace. But internally: turmoil! Your soul is crying out. You are experiencing a profound lack. A cold wind is coursing through the places in your bones where marrow used to be. (more…)

“Wolf Boy”, the 99¢ 2D side-scrolling beat-em-up turn-into-a-werewolf iPhone app

Get it here. If the post title doesn’t tell you everything you need to know, here’s some text cribbed from the Touch Arcade review (which you should read in its entirety):

Wolf Boy is a single plane side-scrolling brawler similar to games like Zombieville USA and Twin Blades. The actual gameplay is rather simplistic, but it features a really appealing art style and best of all it allows you to change from a cute (albeit angry) little boy into a ferocious werewolf to dispatch the many enemies in the game.

The review (and some of the customer comments) make it sound like the game’s simple (and somewhat repetitive) mechanic is compensated for by the graphics, the upgrade system (improve your “boy” and “werewolf” stats independent of each other) and the pure fun of turning into a werewolf to destroy everything on the screen. Plus, it’s a dollar. A dollar. I just paid more than that for a can of Fresca. If it amuses you for five minutes it’s probably paid for itself. I know if I had an iPhone or an iPod Touch (or yes, an iPad) I wouldn’t be writing this post right now… I’d be upgrading my werewolf’s Transformation Time stat.
