Installing Hearthstone into an Android Device for Dummies


Hearthstone is undeniably one of the hottest virtual card game right now. Well, unfortunately it was originally released just for iOS devices and only a few can access to it due to either one of these reasons — the device is not capable of running software and hardware-wise, or its because you are in a country not yet supported for the game. Either of the two will surely annoy you, but nothing beats the reason where you have an Android device and thus automatically disqualifies you from ever playing the game. Well, that was the case before, but right now has already been available on Android devices but it can tricky installing the game. That is why I am dedicating this blog post to help everyone install the game to their devices without even the need to root it. Furthermore, there is no need for you to decompile anything. I made this tutorial the easiest way possible because I know Hearthstone is the game that area played by a wide range of ages, and that includes those little ones.

What Makes Hay Day a Popular Farming Game?



I’m not gonna lie to you. This is the most mundane and overused video game concept I’ve ever played in my life. At least, that was my impression before playing this game called Hay Day. It’s like a mashed up version of Farmville, Farm Town, Harvest Moon and all those farm games that I can think of. I should also mention I have this feeling of getting easily bored by simulator games like this. Surpassed only by the fact that I am doing this for a professional cause.

Hay Day is both a game managing farm and doing different farm works which kind of repetitive and tedious at times. Actually, it’s about lots of crap that you can think of growing. And that’s the everything about this game. You need to care of your farm, and the whole game is getting this to progress. There will be also stuff like restaurants ordering vegetables, floral shops ordering flowers, and that you have to tend to it. In short, grow stuff, ship it out, learn to grow new stuff, ship that stuff, and get rewards.

Like a lot of farming games, it operates on a daily schedule. So every day, you kind of get to choose what to do and what to prioritize. It is about managing your time because it is inevitable that you will be bombarded of so much work and you have to decide for yourself what is the best course of action. There might be a friend outside, waiting to place an order. There might be a letter in your mailbox, which usually leads to minigames, that unlock new seeds. And of course, there’s your farm and everything on it. That’s where the bulk of the game takes place. That’s where you plant, grow and harvest more than 50 kinds of plants. So it’s a lot of daily upkeep, as well as management. You only have a certain amount of space to work with. So you can only plant so much stuff at once.

It’s a really simple game, but it’s also loads of fun and challenging at times. And what I like about this one, compared to some of those that were released ahead of it is the management stuff and option to get the best Hay Day diamond. So instead of just a selection of minigames, it’s all placed within the context of operating a farm. You have to pay attention to orders, you have manage your garden and as do that, and have successful harvests, your farm actually levels up. Which means it gets bigger, and there’s even more to do.

Hay Day is majority farming simulation elements, and all placed within the framework of what is really a game about management. The concept is nothing new but I love it. I love the design, I love the simplicity. All these individual parts really come together well. But there is room for criticism in terms of the individual parts. Fortunately, the interface is generally well done.  Games like this always amaze me, because it somehow find a way to make mundane busywork…fun.

Game Perspective: Boom Beach After a Year


It has been a year since Boom Beach has been released by SuperCell. I guess it is just apt for us to look at the things on how the turned out after it was being dubbed as Clash of Clans copycat and competition withstanding the fact that it has been created by the same company. Well at first many of us even those who are authority when it comes to the gaming world the legitimacy of the game and its aim knowing the fact that COC is already making waves and tons of money with its allegedly 2 million US dollars revenue per day. In addition, things seem to be counter productive for the company making a new title that is and can be  a potential factor for lessening the player base of a well established game in Clash of Clans? After a year, I guess things have been clearer for us who where once a questioning mind to Boom Beach.

The gaming community November last year was kind of shock when they knew about the release of a new game by SuperCell. At first they were hyped up knowing the reputation that the company has already built on. After sometime, the gaming public realized that the game is quite similar to the Clash of Clans. In fact there are subtle differences. Not to mention that there are lots of features that are missing to the game that can potentially be a deal breaker for those who have fallen in love with a full bloom freemium base building strategy game. Despite all that has been said, Supercell came out strong and undaunted. They know that they have better plans and that it can turn the tables for them. Thus, the game continued to be available worldwide after some stint on its beta phase.

It is safe to say that the game pretty much negated all those who doubted it. Yes, it is somehow similar to Clash of Clans but ultimately there are features that makes it unique and gives fans a better gameplay as far as personal gaming experience is concern. The game is not there to compete with the its big brother but rather it is there to give fans an options to enjoy other games with the same feel while they wait on a lengthy battle of upgrades. Apart from that, it also has better implementation of the “Freemium” marketing scheme. And lastly the game is there for future proofing of the company. They know that somehow Clash of Clans will be dead soon.
