Bricksmash is the typical “brick” game clone, move your paddle and keep the ball from hitting the bottom of the play area. Smash all the bricks with the ball to win. But wait a minute bricksmash  add a twist that unlike the Beatles makes things a bit more complicated. When your ball contacts one of the 16 bricks, a little ball appears in that break and you need to clear the brick inside the brick (that so meta)… Once you clear the brick inside the brick the ball break free in the real world and you have 2 brick to play with.

Note to my reader, this a another press release from gamebox for the game General War. I didn’t wrote it so you might notice that they don’t do the same spelling mistakes I do. I didn’t receive any money from them or anything else except a mail. Enjoy !

General War: Memories, as its name shows, a war game that takes you back to WWII classic battle scenes, is about to add two new servers to ensure GW’s players around the world will all be able to play in their comfortable time zones–S3Norfolk (East US) and S4Portsmouth (EU)on 3rd July. All these new servers are named after important military harbors.

This latest production of Gamebox has definitely been the hottest story of the day. General War’s first 2 servers have gathered tens of thousands of players. In this game, players may use various strategies with a wide range of formations, combinations of units (infantry, tanks & artillery), equips and skills to fight alongside their alliance mates. You can do whatever you want to command your troops to success. All the elements in the game, including the maps and storyline are based on history, thus it gives players an exciting experience of commanding troops in WWII.

Players of all ages, professions, regions can have fun in the game through coping with the internal affairs of the city, training troops, fighting against NPCor other players in the arena, attacking cities and defending your city, forming alliance and fighting with alliance mates.If you’re looking for funand interactions, this game will not let you down!

Happy Fourth!


Safe sex with friends

After hooking your friend on word with friend like that report from Zynga  time to get busy. And there the game just for you, “Safe Sex With Friends”.


The game humorous and sexy name it not the only thing that well thought out, the gameplay is actually very intuitive since it’s played like word with friends / scrabble but with a twist, instead of letter you play either body part or a protection (barrier), you have to make a chain instead of a word.


It features the most adorable drawings of jitterbugging dental dams and smiling members of the male and female anatomy you’ll see.



Plant vs Zombies 2 delayed

Remember a weekly post talking about Plant vs zombies I sent you a while ago ?

I was saying that the new Plants vs zombies game was coming out in july but we now have new its been delayed for later this summer.

Contrat: Evolution or Contrat on mobile

It seem all our good old retro game are coming back on mobile and konami is bringing back to good old contrat on iOs.

I haven’t bought it and they didn’t gave me a free trial but I really wonder what the control are like, that game was really tough with that the 30 extra life cheat.

Odin quest

Good news! Our 6th EDT server Revolution of Odin Quest will be released grandly by at 8:00 July 3, 2013 EDT.

(I would have more info but the attachment they sent me was broken…)

Three kingdoms online

Server Merge Announcement for U41 and U42 happening right now (Jul 2nd~5th)

Like we talked last week, the merge for U41 & U42 is happening right now those lucky server are hopefully in for a lot of action. 

And I want to take sometime to come back on the pool I’ve started after this merge announcement.

Result from pool (check the thread at koramgame forum) :


It seem that the community it will be the U30 with U33 since U30 was up at the same time U28/U29 and these two just got their merge (U42 with U26) so it make sense to merge U30 next.

Clash of Kingdoms

The news version is coming with the add-on of emperor heroes. These heroes are like normal heroes that can be recruited in the tavern but they have ability that instead of working in the battle field they affect the output of your manors, they have a ability name Undead God of War that enable that hero to continue fighting even if all is troops are dead but this work only is there is another of your hero on the field that still have troop.

Here the list of all the new hero (click on it for readable image … )

I think is a nice addition to the game, it obvious a way to make players spend gold to get those heroes but I think it will help gold player to maximize their manors and spend their gold

It’s a bit late for a weekly review but I didn’t have access to all my files this weekend guys so sorry about that.

Ripple Dot Zero

Ripple dot zero is quite surprising, it’s pretty aesthetic with is 16-bit retro look, the controls are very good for a browser game and the plot is somewhat really original, you’re a sword-swinging penguin that bashes is way through 20 level to save your other penguin friend trap in some sort of canister.

Lucky peach travel game

Lucky peach is a game build only from text and ASCII art.


Collect treats like hamburgers, pizza, cupcakes, and familiar-looking candies to gain weight. Dodge healthy foods or else you’ll lose weight. Soon, you reach an island where you engage in a series of mini-games to collect ingredients for a good meal.

The sweet potato is quite hard to get at the beginning but it seems they are only 2 maze so once you get the same maze twice you know where to go.

King ascent

You play has a king that is being followed by huge monsters, you use the platform as weapon when they fall on the monster. Each monster is a bit different, the last one even attack you with spear.


If you are in the mood for a quick game of a vertical platformer king ascent is perfect for you. With only five level you have a bit of a challenge that lasts just long enough.

Oh and its come with voice acting, pretty neat 🙂

I included that game because it has a 1943 look and I just love those WWII plane games.


There some major difference from 1943 though, you can chose the difficulty at the beginning and you have the choice of 3 planes, no power up, your plane cans take some bullet and you have allies that assist you.

You might think that the allies really help but there some much bullet and enemy plane flying around that  you’re lucky to have some friendly plane to take some hit for you.

You need to download it to play and the first cause of plane crash in this game is plane hiting one another….

Tactic is probably the most confusing thing in powerplay manager.

There so many things to set up that I need to split this in two  post to cover each section.

Today we focus on the 4 first point: Game importance / Style of play / Power plays / Penalty killing

Game importance



The importance you give to each game will have a direct impact on the energy level of your player. If you play very high most of your game your player will lack the energy to perform during the playoff.

Here a table that shows how much you lose energy when playing a game:

Game Type Very low Low Normal High Very high
Friendly and tournament 0.02 0.05 0.1 0.2 0.3
Competitive games 0.1 0.25 0.5 1 1.5

This can change a lot depending on your situation, you have a team that have better average than most other team, might make sense to start at low or very low and adjust it mid season. You are one position of making the playoff, might be good to pump it up to high or very high to increase your chance of making the playoff. You against a team that you have ultimately no chance of winning, perhaps the best option is to drop everything to low to manage your player.

More info :

Style of play



Some tactic depends on your team but universally each tactic is strong against another tactic and weak against a different tactic. This rock paper scissor kind of setup is called  “Ring of Counter-Tactics” and here what it should look like: Normal > Defensive > Offensive > Forechecking > Counterattacks > Breaking up > Normal

So if we do a table we have (first column beat  X) :

Normal Defensive Offensive Forechecking Counter attacks Breaking up
Normal x
Defensive x
Offensive x
Forechecking x
Counter attacks x
Breaking up x

You can read more about it at :

You can check the full analysis for this ring of tactic on this site.

Power plays / Penalty killing


This one is tricky, because I’ve still not found what the ring of counter for that one and that even if you’re using the counter if your player never played with that type of power play or penalty kill they won’t necessarily do well vs a team who well trained with that tactic.

First you want to at least get the % of your team on that to 33% in each or 100 % in one.

Why would you like to have them up to the same value ? so you can them switching depending on what the opponent is playing.

Note the following table is incomplete it’s mostly come from some player told me and my personal experience (My team is 100% for Shooting from the Point & Active box)

Power Play table :

Power play tactic Strong vs this PK tactic Weak vs this PK tactic
Shooting from the Point Passive Box (?) Active Box
Overload ?? ??
Umbrella ?? ??

Penalty kill table:

Penalty kill tactic Strong vs PP tactic Weak vs PP tactic
Passive Box ?? ??
Active Box Shooting from the Point ??
Diamond ?? ??

I will fill the table when I got more info. Sorry about that. I’ll try to track when I score in PP and when I get scored in PK to see is there a correlation.
