Whether it is a free Honor Points give away for your favorite World War, a button to bleep out obscure profanities, or just try to remember what flashed and when, the iTunes’ App Store releases applications and games like a factory.
The fact that World War 21 Honor Points hit the top of the free iPhone application download list recently attests to how popular free text based iPhone MMO RPGs like World War still are, and how effective their updates and free Honor Points give aways can be. For anybody familiar with any of these free iPhone games from developers like Storm8, The Godfather, Zynga, or PlayMesh you will note that World War is essentially a Role Playing Game in the traditional sense of the word. You enter into World War with the completion of missions that reward you money and experience. The money you will drop into real estate investments, buy weapons, and so on. All of this is done with a text and menu system representation without graphical gaming. This does not rob World War of any of its fun as this is an addiction all of its own. World War utilizes Honor Points as a way for you to pay to cheat. You buy World War Honor Points from the iTunes’ App Store with real money and then you use those Honor Points in World War to buy things, such as point refills. World War Honor Points are pretty expensive so most players will not buy them on a regular basis and instead wait for any possible time that free Honor Points for World War are offered, such as when there is a World War update or promotion. World War 21 Honor Points is just another one of these, but this time there is very little in the way of a World War update. If you are actually committed to World War then you are going to have to jump on this as any free Honor Points are still free Honor Points.
You know that when the first thing you see when you open an iPhone application is “upgrade now” you have a bad start. It is hard to even explain what Bleep Button is because the name truly says it all. What you get is a screen with a big circle in the middle with a red line through it. It says BLEEP really large in the center. When you press it your iPhone makes a loud BLEEP sound. The basic idea of Bleep Button is that it is to be used to “bleep” out people’s bad language, just like in the TV. In the Info tab you have a list of the 201 most “bleeped films” starting with the documentary “F***.” At the bottom of Bleep Button you get a, what did you expect, banner ad. Bleep Button is the kind of free iPhone application that makes you chuckle for a couple hours when you bleep out your friends at the bar, but after that just eats up iPhone storage space. Just so you know, upgrading it is a bad idea altogether.
Simon remains a classic no matter how you spin the electronic circle. In Simon, as most of you will remember fondly in a moment, you have a round object with a green, red, blue, and yellow buttons making up the curvature. A sound will ring out and one of the button will light up. You will hit that button and then enter your waiting stance. Then two buttons will light up with their sound, then three, then four. You will have to observe and memorize the pattern so you can repeat it as long as you can. Simon has usually been the realm of home electronic devices that are kind of expensive and bulky, but Simon: Classic is an iPhone port of the exact same principle. Simon: Classic is not very forgiving and if you even bump the wrong button expect for a big Game Over to reign over you. There are a lot of built in money makers for Category 5 Games, the developer of Simon: Classic. You have a More Games link right from the opening menu and banner ads inside the game, which is not something the screenshots at the iTunes’ App Store show you. This is all somewhat expected from a free iPhone game like this, but these are never features that you want included in the title. Simon: Classic is fairly bare bones, but the strength of the original game endures and carries this even when the design lacks.
