Game Review: Kingdom Royale for iPhone

kr2

Freemium social games do not sound too attractive, but Kingdom Royale was definitely worth taking a chance on. And surely, I was not disappointed. Kingdom Royale is a medieval era resource and battle game where you can join up with friends or take over other players’ land. The game draws you in immediately and keeps you coming back for more. It is great for casual play if you want to jump in for a few minutes, but you can unlocks its full potential by purchasing the item needed to speed up gameplay.

App Review: Echofon for Twitter

Echofon icon

Echofon is a Twitter utility that makes things simple and basic, and that is not a bad thing. Those qualities are exactly what has kept me loyal to Echofon since I purchased my iPhone.

Naturally, it would work the other way.
