Monopoly has gone mobile!…again. The monopoly here and now: world edition has an “updated” economy price for all the in game items. None of the original monopoly icons are in the game. We now have the penguin, statue, baseball glove, windmill, sumo, soccer ball, and the taxicab. The animations are neat resembling the original iTunes monopoly, with reduced graphics(gross, I know). The environments are beautiful and not as plain, contrary to the original version. In addition, the house-rules are the same as the original. This is considerably better(to me) because the original monopoly took up too much space which resulted in outraged reviews in the app store. Which I can’t say I disagree with; I don’t think a game is worth 1GB (unless of course, it’s Nova 3).

Difference Between Here and Now & The Original

  • Here and now has completely different icons.
  • Is about 600MB smaller than the original
  • Here and Now has “did you know?” cards(which can get annoying sometimes

I don’t know about you but I’ve been waiting for this game to discount to 0.99 since I first got my iPad. Because seriously who’s willing to pay $6.99 for a game(except when it comes to N.O.V.A 3)

good docs – google docs™ & html editor

Steve Jobs changed the world when he invented the iPad. But one important key feature was
was left out; You can’t upload files! But google has invented an application where you can view and tore files…online. With good docs – google docs™ & html editor you can transfer your PDF file to google docs using the “open in” feature. This app doesn’t have much use besides having the ability to transfer already written PDF files to google docs. The app has everything the upgraded version does except it’s limited to 6 pages(but you can delete the files you’ve already uploaded).

Price: 6.99

Displayed Storage Size: 1.57 GB

Actual Storage Size: 1.9 GB


This game is the true definition of fun. It’s all the rave in the app store, currently ranking #30. It’s graphics are much similar and better to the Xbox 360’s Halo Waypoint. It’s like holding a Xbox 360 and ps3 in the palms of your hands. The controls are great, there are tons of unlock-ables and a variety of weapons. There are over 5 environments to play from and what they lack in quantity they more than make up for in quality. Now let’s get to the storage size. I had to delete at least 20% of my iPad data . There has to be at least 4 GB of free data available in order for the game to download, and for this app it only takes up a 3rd more space of its listing price. The wifi play is fun, finding a good balance between easy and challenging(aside from the common jet pack over user)). This has to be the only game I know that allows its players to have modes of transportation that the player can actually use! It’s one hit kill weapons like, the ray gun makes it funner than any other wifi shooting game out there(including modern combat 3). This game has surpassed allot of iOS gaming expectations and leaves even more wanting and expecting more. The price is expensive , but I couldn’t hold out any more. Although its a good game if I were in your shoes I would wait until independence day for the 0.99 finger app discount. This game is well worth the space it takes up even for us 16GB users(first time ever said”. When nova 2 was released in the app store everyone said gameloft has outdone themselves(mostly because of the tv outlet feature) but they have once again pushed the limits

Batman: Arkham City Lockdown

Price: $6.99

Link: Batman

Displayed Size: 962MB

Actual Size: 1.6 G


Batman Arkham city lock down is a dual combat game much similar to infinity blade. To the kid that is unbeknownst to games, he would think these were Xbox 360 graphics, because they look just like them. One thing the game does not clarify is that it isn’t a free roam or free movement game. The transitioning videos graphics have great detail, much like the game.

  • To ultimate batman fans BACL would be ideal game as the animations are near to perfect
  • The Storage size might break the bank for low memory users. I myself had to delete 20%of my apps to install the game
  • BACL has cloud support. So you can just save your current game, delete it, download it back and continue playing as if nothing happened

    Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies for iPad

    Price: 6.99

    Displayed Storage Size: 362MB

    Actual Storage Size: 806MB

    Link:Call of Duty: Black Ops Zombies


    CoD is a fun, interactive, game for iPhone and iPad. There really isn’t a story line to it, there’s a zombie breakout during nazi times. This game is enjoyable enough for horror fanatics, and still playable for those who embody the definition of squeamish (like myself). There are really no huge bosses(unless you consider hoards of zombies an end game boss).

    • COD offers 30 gun varieties including: Assault Rifles, Submachine guns, Shotguns, Light Machine Guns, Handguns, Explosives, and wonder weapons(ray gun, thunder gun, ext).
    • COD is intuitive yet challenging
    • COD: BOZ includes wifi for coupled killings all around the world
    • COD: BOZ has not so clear teamspeak for wifi use

    Monopoly for iPad

    Price:$4.99

    Link: Monopoly


    Monopoly has gone mobile! There have been many diverse reviews regarding this game. For us iPad 1&2 users, the recent update has left us with mixed feelings. The former size of this game was less than 100 megabytes. For the retina feature on the iPad 3 this game was updated and is now a whomping 256. Or so the description says. The actual size of this app is a gargantuan 936 megabytes(almost a gig), and the thing is…for us iPad 1&2 users there’s no real change. And Although the “updated” graphics aren’t really noticeable, a game like monopoly isn’t meant to have appealing graphics anyway. And your’e bombarded with ads on your first opening(common with EA games). And if a game takes up 1/16 of my iPad space, it isn’t worth having. The new image of the game has been optimized for the iPad 3 but like the insurance commercials say: “We know that new friends aren’t better than old friends.”

    • For iPad 3 users there’s an editable interface
    • 7 icons to choose from including : Battleship, Top hat, Iron, Race Car, Shoe, Thimble, Dog, and the new Prius
    • Monopoly for iPad has 5 different 3d environments
    • Monopoly for iPad has Tabletop mode so you wont have to pass your iPad around getting everyone’s grubby hands on it
