What I want in Angry Birds Star Wars

It’s no secret that Star Wars fans will finally be presented today with a Star Wars game worthy of the license. Today Rovio plans to launch Angry Birds Star Wars, and from the looks of the image below from USA Today’s article “Star Wars invades Angry Birds” the game is going to be legendary..

Angry Birds Star Wars

So what would I want in the game for it to make me forget the prequels? well here is a short list.

  1. Darth Vader can use the force to throw meteors in your path
  2. Luke can use the light saber while in bird flight… to knock out obstacles
  3. Millenium Falcon can be used like an Angry birds… and it teleports
  4. Asteriod fields
  5. Princess Leia.. nuff said

Let’s see how many of these Rovio gets right!

Zynga’s CityVille Review – Gamezebo — December 7, 2010

Zynga’s CityVille Review – Gamezebo

Gamezebo just posted Zynga’s CityVille review

Here is the summary


  • Fully rotatable 3D buildings make your city fun to look at. Mission structure offers clear and interesting goals. Collectibles and farming elements are well-implemented. Game‚Äôs visuals are bright and extremely inviting.


  • Community buildings force solo players to pay a ‚Äúno friends tax‚ÄĚ much too early. Facebook has made keeping track of notifications fairly difficult, but CityVille is most fun when you‚Äôre engaging heavily with the social mechanics. The overall feel of the game may strike some players as overly-reminiscent of games like Social City and Millionaire City.

CityVille is Zynga’s long-awaited entry in the city-building genre, which has proven itself amazingly durable on Facebook. Where many city-builders must be played strictly in brief bursts, CityVille actually offers enough to do that you can spend a considerably longer amount of time with it per session. In theory you can only do things until you run out of energy, but I found myself needing to wait for things to happen more often than I found myself waiting for my energy to regenerate.
