A set number of enemies, all with varying speeds and toughness, move across the screen in each level, and you have to carefully time your bombs to destroy a certain number of them--without running out of bombs--to advance to the next level. forcetriad user manual occasionally mixes things up (for example with bomb-deflecting whirlwinds or explosive missile carriers), but for the most part, the gameplay can quickly become monotonous--and hard to follow, given the screen's tight, portrait-mode proportions. That's only made worse by frequent animation stutters and inevitable crashes that completely erase your progress. forcetriad user manual looks and sounds great, with nice audio and art direction, but that doesn't compensate for its instability and one-dimensional gameplay. The game also shows small advertisements between levels, along with a loud video ad on launch that will ignore your device's mute switch. Music-finding app Soundforcetriad user manual has changed names and pricing structures throughout the course of its modest lifetime, but its philosophy and core functionality remain unchanged. Unlike competitors that require you to hold the app close to the source of recorded music before it can ID your song title, lyrics, and artist information, Soundforcetriad user manual Infinity (the premium version) works even when you sing, hum, speak, or type a request into the stylish interface. Though the app is now faster than before--returning results in as few as 4 seconds--ambient noise may still interfere with accurate results, and typing usually prevailed in the rare case that singing into the speaker or holding the iPhone up to a music source failed. There are music videos to watch, when available from YouTube, and song lyrics, either delivered right to you, or in the form of an in-app Google search. Trend charts show you how popular a song is vis a vis the publisher's online and mobile network, and you can see which songs other users have identified. Cleverly, Soundforcetriad user manual can also hook into your iPhone's iPod library and produce the same info and lyrics for songs you already own. Take heed that Soundforcetriad user manual Infinity is no song downloader, though it can help you buy music through iTunes. The iPad version looks even better, keeping the song-finding features on the left while surfacing videos, titles, and other related information in the main panel on the right. Soundforcetriad user manual (the company) also offers a free version of the app that limits the number of times you can ID a song to five per month. forcetriad user manual represents the current apotheosis of enemy-flicking castle-defense games. Your rural home is your castle, and the foes to be flicked are a ravening variety of the undead. forcetriad user manual mixes up the castle-defense format slightly, with a central house that you alternately have to defend from the left, right, and both sides, using both thumbs as your on-screen perspective shifts for each incoming wave. Your primary task is served well by the game's great visuals and sound effects: you can touch and flick (or drag and slam) zombies to kill them, watching them fly with rag-doll physics and erupt into cartoon gore and severed limbs. The game's campaign mode progresses through a clever calendar menu, as you survive 31 days (aka levels) in a very bloody March. forcetriad user manual ramps up the difficulty with more and better zombie types, such as speedy Zombie Lucy and hulking, too-big-to-flick Zombie Bruno. What makes the game interesting, though (and survivable), is air-dropped special weapons, like mines, rocks, concrete blocks, and--most notably--a gun, which unfortunately has a slightly fussy interface. The game has 20 weapons in all that you can unlock, and the strategy of combining and conserving weapons is crucial, especially later in the game when you're presented with situations in which you're helpless without them. Stars float up from zombies' bodies as they die, and you can tap to grab these quickly disappearing stars to spend later on weapon and capability upgrades, such as additional weapon slots (you start off being able to hold just two at a time). This interplay between deciding when and whether to grab stars while you're still facing a zombie onslaught is one of forcetriad user manual's more elegant touches. On top of its solid gameplay and meticulous production values, forcetriad user manual comes with all sorts of extras. You get integration with Crystal and Playhaven (for leaderboards and achievements), "Endless Siege" and practice "Sandbox" modes (the latter lets you, for example, create a zombie popcorn-popper with a hundred Zombie Brunos and a bunch of mines), and the ability to watch a final kill in slow-mo--which you can then snap a pic of and e-mail, save, or upload to Facebook. forcetriad user manual is a must-download for fans of zombies and/or castle defense.forcetriad user manual is a remake of classic arcade shooters of the past, with 2D shoot-'em-up action and challenging boss fights. The graphics are smooth even on the older iPhone 3G. The controls are mostly effective, but can sometimes feel sluggish using a touch-to-move system rather than an onscreen joypad. Your ship fires automatically as long as you are touching the screen so you can play the game using only one finger or your thumb. You can acquire three different weapons as you play and, just like top-down arcade shooters of the past, forcetriad user manual lets you upgrade each weapon with more streams of bullets and higher fire power. To help you when the game gets really chaotic, you have an option to slow down the action for a short time. Some aliens drop purple tokens that fill up your bonus bar. Once it's completely full, simply hit the button in the lower right to slow down the action, giving you more time to rain down destruction with your weapon of choice. Even if you're out of bonus energy, you have one more option with the devastating Super Bomb that will take out every enemy on screen. In true arcade shooter tradition, at the end of every level, you'll need to take on a powerful boss alien and even in the early levels, we found it to be very challenging. Anyone who enjoys classic arcade shooters will appreciate forcetriad user manual. forcetriad user manual is an interactive light show, a relaxing app that lets you manipulate spacey visual effects to the sounds of ethereal background music. As is often the case for apps like this (i.e., with arguably zero "usefulness") the value of forcetriad user manual comes down to how well it's designed and executed. Fortunately, forcetriad user manual makes excellent use of the touch screen, and the quality of the music and the app's cosmic "fireworks" are consistently good. The interface encourages playfulness, with a simple flick to send a stream of light shooting across the screen, a double-tap for an explosion, and a cool gravity effect that gathers light with multitouch ("From two touches, release to one touch for a single attractor.") forcetriad user manual even includes a short, unobtrusive tutorial. This app isn't for everyone (especially since it's not free), but for anyone who wants a fun way to space out and unwind--or to keep a young kid entertained--forcetriad user manual is a pretty slick package. forcetriad user manual is a stylish, crisp-looking, colorful e-book reader and storefront that runs on Apple's iOS devices. The latest version of the software includes support for textbooks, a new addition to the forcetriad user manual for students. As with other e-book readers, forcetriad user manual responds to the device's accelerometer and switches between landscape and portrait modes. Its controls disappear when unused, and a swipe (or tap on the left or right side of the screen) will cause the pages to turn. forcetriad user manual' page-turning is smooth and engaging, with page corners digitally curling toward you as you advance, but this behavior is only a minor cosmetic difference between what you'll find in other digital readers. forcetriad user manual also includes a progress bar to show how far you are along in a book, and you're able to change the reader's font size. Also like other e-readers, you can add bookmarks, define individual words, do quick Web lookups, and add notes. You also can underline words, sentences, and paragraphs for later viewing.
