We review 5by, an Android app from StumbleUpon that guides you to the best videos on YouTube.
Ever had trouble finding something good to watch on YouTube? Okay, so you can search for things and ‘surf’, by clicking related videos each time, but – let’s be honest – there’s an awful lot of dross to wade through. Wouldn’t it be great if you could quickly find the good stuff you’re interested in, particularly when you only have a few minutes spare?
This is where 5by comes in. Describing itself as a ‘video concierge’, the service has been compared to Songza: whereas the latter creates music playlists to suit your mood, 5by aims to do the same for videos – with curated content sourced from both YouTube and Vimeo.
To help it find the sort of things you like, the app starts out by asking you about your interests and friends via a few multiple-choice questions. You can then sign in with Facebook or email.
Pitfall! Krave is an endless runner game for Android in the style of Temple Run. Is it worthy of a download? Find out in our review
Endless runners are in abundance on the Google Play store, with Pitfall being the latest franchise to get in on the action.
This time around you need to guide Pitfall Harry around a cavern in search of the Chocovore idol.
To do so you need to swipe in different directions on your screen to avoid, jump and duck under continuous waves of obstacles, with the game getting increasingly faster the further you progress into the depths of the cave.
Does Final Fantasy VI live up to the expectations set by the rest of the series? Find out in our review of this Android game
We’ve been thoroughly impressed with each re-release of Square Enix’s classic RPG series on to the Android operating system, but does FF VI match the quality of the others?
Storywise it’s hard to really criticise the game, it’s massive. Towns are varied enough to make them worth exploring and there’s so many engaging characters to choose from, you’ll always have something to do here.
Where FF VI is at it’s finest is with the dungeon crawling aspects that you’ll encounter time and time again. You never quite know just how sprawling specific dungeons will be, so it takes a lot of time to prepare your team for combat while also making sure you’re suitably packed full of potions and other life saving medicines.
We review the latest addition to the Deus Ex series of games for Android
Despite having a stellar line up of games on previous PlayStation consoles, the Deus Ex series has largely gone unnoticed in the past, but the arrival of Deus Ex: The Fall on Android could soon change all that.
At it’s core, The Fall is a first person shooter, that sees you shredding through enemies and machines of the future. Playing as Ben Saxon, you must use your combined weapon set and various skills to takedown a corporation who wants him dead.
You’ll notice as you begin to play that the story is told pretty well, even if some of the cut scenes do tend to drag on a bit occasionally and although we won’t give anything away, the ending is so-so to say the least.
