iOS Game Review: Mean Girls: The Game

There's a new breed of Plastics trying to takeover North Shore by piecing together the Spring Fling Tiara, and it's your job to rally all the high school cliques to stop them. Welcome to Mean Girls: The Game, brought to you by the same developers who gave us RuPaul’s Drag Race: Dragopolis.

Mean Girls The Game iOS

Mean Girls for iOS is a tower defense title. If you have never played a TD game before, the basic goal is to stop waves of enemies from crossing a game board and getting to the final goal. You normally do this by placing towers along a path to blow up advancing armies, but in this game your job is to stop teenage girls by hitting them over the head with guitars and launching baseballs at them. Some people find tower defense games boring because you don't really control anything on the screen. You just just kind of sit around and watch your towers do all the work. The good thing about this game is it keeps you busy with trivia, and you really need to know a lot about Mean Girls the movie to do well.

The Official Review of Princess Bride: The Official Game

Princess Bride - The Official Game is a good example of everything that is wrong with the App Store and mobile games. This doesn't mean the game is bad, but it is the type of App Store title that forces you to talk about download prices and in-app purchases, instead of the game itself. And that's a shame, because as everyone knows, Princess Bride the movie is a classic and it deserves a lot better.

Princess Bride: The Official Game”  title=

First let me say that Princess Bride - The Official Game does a great job of paying homage to William Goldman and Rob Reiner’s wonderful fairytale world of fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love and miracles. The game is full of music and images straight from the film and it features all the classic lines you have been quoting since 1987. The problem with the game is its layout. Instead of being one cohesive game that takes you through the Princess Bride story it is broken down into four parts or four mini games:

Survive the Shrieking Eels!
Scale the Cliffs of Insanity!
Cross swords and duel with Inigo!
Wrestle against a Giant!
