A plaintful story from a sist'ring vale,The Woman and Her Hen
<p>Mumbai-based developer Yellow Monkey was delighted to have its tile-based puzzler Socioball selected as the runner-up in Pocket Gamer Connects Bangalore's Very Big Indie Pitch.</p><p>Our panel of distinguished judges picked Socioball for its clean art style, pleasing puzzle mechanics, and particularly clever Twitter integration.</p><p>You have to guide the game's titular ball to the goal in order for complete each puzzle. To do this you need to place an assortment of tiles down, of which there are eight different types, including jump tiles, switch tiles, and directional tiles.</p><p>This plays not entirely unlike an isometric 3D version of Brickhouse, or a more complex version of ChuChu Rocket!</p><p>However, where Socioball really stands out is in its level editor - or, more accurately, how it shares its levels.</p><p>You design a level in much the same way as you play. Drag tiles, drop them, playtest. The magic touch happens when you choose to share said level - it's sent out into the Twittersphere as an image alongside the level title and #socioball hashtag.</p><p>Embedded within the image is a hidden watermark, which Socioball scrapes from Twitter by tracing the #socioball hashtag. The game is then populated with extra user-generated levels from around the world.</p><p>It's ingenious stuff, and Yellow Monkey has already chosen many of its favourite user-made levels to add to the game's 70 existing levels so they don't disappear into the online ether.</p>Than the true gouty landlord which doth owe them.
That maidens' eyes stuck over all his face.
<p>There are two reasons I want to write about Mini Metro.</p><p>Firstly, it hasn't yet graced the online pages of PG before. Secondly, I wanted to type the name of the company making it...Dinosaur Polo Club.</p><p>That's better.</p><p>Mini Metro is a minimalistic subway management game. That may not sound very exciting but, trust me, this is a slick little game worth keeping a beady eye on.</p><p>You're constantly kept busy with redesigning the underground railway tracks in Mini Metro. You can't just design it once and be done with it.You are Hope Mod You are Hope 220.127.116.11 Mod (Full version) Features:Full versionThis game is currently in Beta.

If you have played the original, you will recognize Jason's cute and quirky graphics and sounds, as well as the wonderful premise: rebuilding civilization from scratch, together with other players and across countless generations.You are born either as a baby to one of the other players, or as a young woman if no suitable mother is found. Every minute of real time is one year in the game and your maximum age is 60 years. A single life is limited, but the things you make during your lifetime are left for your children and grandchildren once you are gone. Try to make life a little bit easier for those who come after you, so your family line will have a chance to prosper for generations to come.Sometimes you will spawn alone in the wilderness. You need to build a fire to stay warm and trap rabbits to get meat and furs for clothes. A sharp stone may be your best friend in the beginning. Try to find a good spot to settle and grow some food, because other players may soon arrive as your children, and will need to be taken care of until they are grown enough to help you.Sometimes you will be born in a sprawling city, with farmers, cooks, blacksmiths, shepherds and hunters. There will be clothes and equipment ready for you, prepared by players who may be your grandparents or distant relatives. Maybe you will gather some friends and set out to start a colony of your own, maybe you will inherit a farm job from your uncle, or maybe you will slay bears and wolves. The choices are endless, but remember: unless you leave the world better after you have lived than when you arrived, you have not really achieved anything.Every life you play will put you in contact with new players. Some are more experienced than you, some are less. Some will teach you and some will learn from you. Some may even be disruptive to the civilization you are building, and will need to be dealt with accordingly. It will be up to you and your fellow players to shape the world for a brief moment in time, before the following generations take over.After your game life is over, you can look at your family tree and see how your descendants are doing. Your performance will be judged on how many generations come after you and on how many of your younger relatives survive into adulthood.
