You get to relive your life with the help of Dr. Rosalene and Dr. Watts. They have peculiar jobs where they give people another opportunity to live, but anyone can live all the way from the start of your existence. There is another catch: these past memories are re-lived only in the head.

The patient undergoes a severe and intense operation. Due to the severity of the procedure, the new life is the last thing the patient remembers before drawing their last breath. Hence, the operation is performed on people on their deathbeds. This process offers them a way to fulfill what they wish they had done with their lives but did not.

In To The Moon, the player follows a story of an elderly man named Johnny. You have to try to fulfill his dreams by going back in time, to the life he led.

Her Story

Her Story

Genre:

Full motion video

Publisher:

A few years ago, Sam Barlow, a game director of a gaming studio left the commercial space to create indie games. He developed and published Her Story, which is a unique game that is packed with suspense, mystery, and a lot of detective work. From the story to the gameplay, Her Story is definitely one-of-a-kind that is widely praised.

Cost:

The price for the game varies a bit based on the device. It ranges from Rs. 320 to 349.

Platform:

Android/ iOS/ Windows

Gameplay:

The crux of this game is about a woman answering a series of questions to the police officers in various interviews with regards to the disappearance of her husband. As you are provided only with the answers and the questions are not presented to you, as a detective you need to put them all together and search for the keywords in the police database in order to uncover the mystery. Remember the transcripts of her entire interviews are viewable in the database. If you search a keyword like say “husband” or a “murder”, by typing it, the video clip containing her answers related to them pops up which acts as a clue for you to move forward. You might get a little impatient when you get stuck somewhere. But that’s where the challenge remains. Overall, it is a great game to test your patience and intelligence.

The story is not that simple. There are twists and turns along the way. You are introduced to Hannah Smith, who is the main accuse in her husband, Simon’s murder. However, the plot thickens as new characters are introduced and then more information is divulged. You have to weed out the truth and weave the clues together to deduce who murdered Simon.

The video game is about a woman talking to the police. Her Story is an award-winning video game developed and published by Sam Barlow, who is also a creator of Silent Hill: Shattered Memories and Aisle. It is a crime fiction game that has a non-linear storytelling style. So, watch the video footage of her interrogation from the police database and find out the main plot.

Editorial Review:

If you love solving crimes, then this is one of those new interesting games that you will love. You need to don the role of a detective and assist the police in solving a mystery. Sounds interesting isn’t it? In addition to that you can expect twists at any point of time, some of which can be spine chilling while some of them may be funny.

Since the twists that come your way are so captivating you might not notice that it is not accompanied with any music background score at all!

Her Story sits you in front of a mothballed desktop computer that’s logged into a police database of video footage. It covers seven interviews from 1994 in which the British woman is interviewed about her missing husband. Explore the database by typing search terms, watch the clips where she speaks those words and piece together her story.

You cannot watch the interviews in its entirety. They are just short clips. In the interviews, we only hear Hannah’s reply or answers to unknown questions from an off-screen detective. You have to figure out the questions based on the answers. Also, Hannah's answers are transcribed, so you can find videos by searching the police database. Based on your keyword, for example, murder or husband, those videos will pop up. One of the files on the desktop is a database checker, which allows the player to review the number of clips that have been viewed; as a clip is viewed, the red box in the database checker changes to green.

Unlike anything you've played before, Her Story is an involving and moving experience. A game that asks you to listen.

Challenges:

There are a multitude of videos to watch that are loaded with clues of the crime and perpetrator. However, there are plenty of videos to go through. Which one will you start with? Did you miss a video? Did you miss a clue? You will feel stuck at several places during the videos or while putting the clues together. Also, there may be hints in the detective’s questions, but you do know what they are asking as you can only hear the answers from Hannah.

Quick Tips:

  • To hit the nail on the head and acquire the right information use nouns while searching. A noun is a person, place, or thing, so search for nouns that she says in her actual dialogue. Try different combinations to understand the story.
  • The detective dialogue is the "missing" volume. Think of the follow-up questions that the detectives might say and then search for the same wordage. Remember that words are often recycled in the game.

FarmVille

FarmVille

Genre:

Social game

Publisher:

Zynga is an American company that aims at developing social games that brings friends and families together.

Gameplay:

City dwellers are surrounded with concrete and population and endless activities that we forget about the simple life. When we step away from the city and head to the rural side, we are enamored with farming, cattle rearing, and other nitty gritty at a farm. Hence, FarmVille will give you a taste of the simple life, which will actually keep you occupied.

In FarmVille, escape to a world of farming with your friends and have a blast. Go on farm adventures to collect rare goods. You can also craft new recipes, raise animals, and grow your farm with friends. Beside this, join a farm Co-Op to trade and share or play on your own in anonymous mode.

You begin with an empty farm which must be eventually transformed into a fertile one. For that, you will be given a fixed currency of farm coins to begin with and as you start doing actions such as ploughing or buying items, you will be earning experience points (XP). Your progress is measured by obtaining more items that elevates you to upcoming levels. That would give you the access to procure many more crops and animals by using farm cash or coins. If you are adventurous and ambitious, your job of developing the land can be achieved without much difficulty.

Editorial Review:

It is an adventure game where you will venture into farmlands for collecting rare goods and craft new recipes. In fact, this game will remind you of a toy farm that you had as a child. This game uses the social media platform of Facebook to contact other players which will help you develop your farm quickly. The numerous expansions including farming in England, Hawaii, Japan and Atlantis and many more have made the game one of the very interesting games to play. Overall the game gives a sense of satisfaction of cultivating your own farmland involved in various aspects of farming which include ploughing, planting, growing and harvesting crops in addition to raising livestock. This app is playable offline too.

FarmVille is one of the most interesting games that fulfills your farming dreams. You are allowed to create a beautiful and expansive space to setup your farm. Build and let your farm flourish in FarmVille. You come across a variety of interesting characters, grow and unlock special crops, take care of animals, and make your farm come alive. Trade with neighbours, contribute to your friends’ farms, and join a Co-op to work with farmers you can count on to complete a shared Order Board and progress on the Co-op Delivery Map for huge rewards. Play FarmVille anytime, anywhere as you are not strapped to the internet.

Challenges:

In-game money buys you a lot of stuff to kickstart or repair or upgrade. However, you run out of money before you can build a resource for it. You are tempted to spend in the initial rounds to purchase things, but income coming in is slow. So, build a bank by selling your crops and finished goods. It is one of the easiest ways to earn cash and experience points. Also, once you unlock the Farm Stand, you have some say on what you get for crops and goods and it's typically more than the general Farm Orders board will net you.

Quick Tips:

  • You will lose out on the bonuses if you skip on spinning the wheel daily. Once you unlock it, spin it every day even if it's only to collect your daily spin. What you can win gets higher and higher as you play consecutively without missing a day.
  • Even in FarmVille you have the infamous time cheat. What you can do is go to your system settings and move your clock forward. Re-open FarmVille and longer tasks will be completed. Sometimes we get impatient for a task to complete, hence this cheat never fails.

RummyCircle

Genre:

Card Game

Publisher:

When you think of online rummy, you think of RummyCircle. It is one of the leading platforms to play India’s favourite card game online. It is developed and published by Play Games 24x7, which is an Indian gaming company that has revolutionised how one plays card games. They have millions of subscribers. They are crushing the rummy game online with huge tournaments where you can win real cash prizes that run into crores.

Cost:

You can download the game for free, but to really enjoy the experience of rummy, join a paid game. You just have to pay a minimum of Rs. 25 to enter exciting games.

Gameplay:

People have been playing rummy for centuries, but it is only in the last decade have they started playing it on gadgets. On RummyCircle, the player is assigned 13 cards. Sort out the cards to form a pure sequence, impure sequences, and sets to declare. This is the premise of rummy on this interesting game. On this online platform you also use printed and wildcard joker to form only impure sequences and sets.

The game starts when 13 cards are dealt to the players. You quickly group the cards into viable sequences and sets. With each round, discard unwanted cards in the discard pile and pick cards from either the closed or open deck. Your goal should be to form a winning hand before your opponent declares.

So, what is a winning hand? It must have a pure sequence; this is a group of cards from the same suit in consecutive order. You cannot use any type of joker to make this sequence. The perfect example is 5 6 7.

Then, the winning hand can include an impure sequence, but it is not compulsory. It does fulfill the minimum two-sequence requirement that you need for declaring. It is a combination of three or more cards of the same suit, and you can use the wildcard joker or printed joker to form this sequence. This is a good example, 5♠ Q 7♠ 8♠ PJ.

Lastly, you can include a set to complete your hand, but it is not mandatory. A set is a combination of three or more cards of the same value but from different suits. Here you can use wild cards and printed jokers to form sets. One such example is 5 5♣ 5♠ PJ.

As soon as you arrange 13 cards in valid two sequences that includes 1 pure sequence and more groups (sequences or sets), you can declare and win the game.

Editorial Review:

RummyCircle is the most played online card game in India. The objective of the game is to form at least two sequences one of which must be a pure one and form sets and sequences with the remaining cards available. The toss decides who should start the game. Once the cards are dispensed, the players must pick up a card from either open or closed deck and discard one every turn. This will continue until one player is able to achieve the objective of the game. There are also joker cards which you can use in lieu of any other card to form a sequence or set, except that it cannot be considered a pure one. Since no declaration is valid without pure sequence, your first and foremost goal must be to form a pure sequence.

The game of Rummy is the most happening online game since the last few years. With its amazing graphics and remarkable features, the game has conquered the hearts of Rummy fans all over India. You can start as a beginner and still turn an expert in this game as it comprises in-depth video tutorials and practice games. There are cash tables and interesting tournaments available throughout the day.

As the game has gone online, you are playing rummy with like-minded subscribers. Since there are over 40 million players on this platform, you do not have to wait, but you can quickly start playing the game. Also, did you know, you can win real cash rewards with this Android game? RummyCircle has the biggest tournaments with a big prize pool that goes up to crores of Rupees. There are many tournaments that you can join any time as per your comfort and preference.

To safeguard the players’ data, they have embedded end-to-end encryption. This has made it a reliable Android game, where you can add and withdraw money without any worry.

On RummyCircle, you are playing rummy at a fast pace. The momentum of it gets you completely engrossed in the game. The pace at which cards are picked and discarded, the speed at which the cards are grouped is quick. You feel the rush of the game, just what you want when you are relaxing during your break.

Challenges:

One of the challenges of rummy is to form a pure sequence right at the beginning. As mentioned in gameplay, you cannot declare without it. So, if you think you have a bad hand and there is no redemption from it, you should drop from the table. It saves you from losing a lot of points.

Rummy is a game of skill and one of the skills to learn is to guess your opponent’s hand. If you know it, you know which cards he or she wants, so you hold on to them. This move comes with a lot of practice and over time.

Quick Tips:

  • In order to guess your opponents’ hand, keep a track of cards they are discarding and picking from the open deck. If they pick up a 6 ♥ then they are forming a sequence or set with it. So, you avoid throwing cards that will help them with their grouping.
  • Remember the rules of the game and the various tips and tricks of rummy. This will help you play wisely and quickly realise if an opponent is using a trick. This will help you counter strike the move.
  • Hold on to your middle cards. They are helpful in grouping the cards in a far better manner. For instance, 6 of any suit can make a sequence with 4, 5 or 5, 7 or 7, 8. An Ace can only make a sequence with 2, 3.

Pokemon Go

Pokemon Go

Genre:

Adventure (augmented reality)

Publisher:

Niantic, Inc. is a US-based company that is exclusively into augmented reality. Their mission is to develop products that use augmented reality that ranges from entertainment to robotics. You may have heard or played their other augmented reality games—Harry Potter: Wizards Unite and Ingress Prime. They are transforming gaming one game at a time.

Platform:

Android/iOS

Cost:

Pokemon Go is playable for free, but there are microtransactions in the game.

Gameplay:

Pokemon Go is a blend of the computer-generated and real world. The game forces you to step outdoors and discover the real world which seamlessly works in accordance with the virtual maps. So, pop out of the house and go on a Pokemon hunt—seize creatures from the series with a Poke Ball. A ball that captures them. Each of the creatures have extraordinary capabilities and talent. There are different Pokemon species in different parts of the world, so it is a very exciting game if you are a traveller. As you go on this hunt, you are awarded Candies and Stardust, which boosts the abilities of the pokemon.

Once they are powered up, they are set to compete in gym battles. Win the battle and seize the gym and get involved in the gym business. You can also team up with trainers at the gym and capture Pokemon during Raid Battles.

Editorial Review:

If you have watched Pokemon the Series—the anime TV show in your childhood, then you are likely to know the furry creatures from this universe. If you are new to it, then Pokemon is a concept by a Japanese company that used to develop video games in the 90s. When Pokemon Go was introduced as an Android game, millennials and Gen Y quickly picked up the game. This game is about capturing various creatures in your neighbourhood—this is where the augmented reality comes and bump up your numbers.

This game has become a major brand in the sense, people around the world can buy merchandise, enter in global ticketed events online itself, and you are introduced to new Pokemon every now and then. The game is progressing every time, so you are curious to play it.

In terms of graphics, the beauty of augmented reality comes to life. It is amazing how the real-world maps sync with the virtual one. From roads to intersections, you are capturing Pokemon wherever you go. This is possible because the game uses your smartphone and GPS signal. That is the reason you can see Pokemon appearing on the roads in real life. One of the ways to sense if there is a Pokemon nearby is by the rustling of the grass—go closer and they will appear.

One of the pitfalls of Pokemon Go is that it needs really good data connectivity like 4G. The game also drains your battery quickly. You will need to lug around a portable charger to stay tuned to the game.

The other minor technical problems include an opaque interface—as if there is a white filter. Also, the mechanics of the games are poorly explained. You are told want needs to be done in the initial stage of downloading, but you are left in the dark when it comes to operating the game.

That said, the best way to enjoy playing the game is to head outdoors. So, if you are travelling, this is the ideal game.

Challenges:

If you have downloaded Pokemon Go for the first time, then note that you are left on your own to understand the controls and learn to master them. There is no tutorial to guide you through the controls or the aspects of the game. However, with practice and in time, you get the hang of it and understand the various features of the game.

It is a challenge to power up your Pokemon. One way of doing it is by feeding on candies. However, this is one of the rookie mistakes players make - they focus on powering up their Pokemon. For the optimum utilisation of the Pokemon’s power, boost their experience points (XP). Maximising your XP ensures you move to the new level, which in turn gives you additional elements and features.

Quick Tips:

  • You need to build an army to fight with in Gym and Raid battles. So, you do not have to carry around every type of Pokemon.
  • One way to save battery life is to turn off augmented reality mode. The environment remains the same and you find it easier to catch Pokemon.
  • Engage in raid Battle fights that you have an opportunity to win. If you lack powerful Pokemon then you will lose. Check the power of the Pokemon in the Raid Battle before you start.

Challenges:

You will be faced with a variety of tasks that will require various skills from your animal persona. However, the animal you select will have its pros and cons, its strengths and weaknesses. So, it is challenging to pick the right animal that will help you progress through the games efficiently and effectively.

It is a challenge to power up your Pokemon. One way of doing it is by feeding on candies. However, this is one of the rookie mistakes players make - they focus on powering up their Pokemon. For the optimum utilisation of the Pokemon’s power, boost their experience points (XP). Maximising your XP ensures you move to the new level, which in turn gives you additional elements and features.

Quick Tips:

  • Wolf: Basic
  • Fox: Lower health, above speed
  • Lynx: Weaker than wolf
  • Bear: More health but less energy than a wolf
  • Lion: 5+ HP than a wolf
  • Horse: 10+ HP than a wolf
  • Cheetah: Same health as fox, though less energy, attacks and moves the fastest

Gameplay:

Many children dream of becoming a pilot someday. Flying a plane is the epitome of having control of a vehicle in the air. You are above other people and you have a bird’s eye view of the world. Everything is smaller to you, even the mighty mountains. The Real Flight Simulator game gives you this very experience.

You are a pilot of the flight and you see the world differently from high above the clouds. In this game you are on a mission to fly between airports. You are in control of the entire flying process—from talking to the Air Traffic Controller to navigating the maps. You get to become a real pilot in this game. You are given access to liveries (uniform), customise all airplanes, their gauges, failures and weather conditions.

When you enter the game, you get to select the plane you want to fly like Airbus A330, Boeing 787, Airbus 380, etc. Then you have to choose the airline—LATAM, Delta, Qatar, Finnair, etc. Once you have the flight, you can select the airports you wish to start and end. It can be Mumbai to Delhi airport. You are then on the runway waiting for take-off procedure.

The Real Flight Simulator is an awesome game that fulfills your childhood dream, well not in reality, but virtually. The power you experience when you take-off and land is amazing. If you are looking for a simulation game, then this is the top one in 2019.

Editorial Review:

The game really puts you in the pilot’s seat. You are in-charge of the decisions and really immerses you in the procedures for a pilot and the aviation industry.

There are three options to fly a plane:

Fly Now: In this mode, you get to choose the type of plane you want to fly and the airline that is close to you. You also get to pick which airports you want to visit.

Real Time Flights: In this mode, you pick a flight that is flying in real time. This is an impressive feature. You are flying a real time flight on a real flying route.

Advanced Flight Planner: In this mode, the planning extends to selection of date and time, the route, weather, aircraft, etc.

Multiplayer: You can connect with other players in the game as they embark on their journey.

What is impressive about this game is the fact that you can be faced with failures too while flying. You build a real sense of experience even though you know it is a game at the end of the day. But the graphics and sound make the game believable and real. You feel like you are flying a plane, but nothing can be compared to the real experience.

The graphics may not be as detailed as an action game, but you still feel the rush of flying. The interface has a lot of buttons and options, yet the screen is clean. There is a lot of viewing space to get the experience of flying. So, jump on to this game and fall in love with flying. You may appreciate it more too.

Challenges:

Just like in real life, when a plane passes through rough weather, it is difficult to manage, so as in the game. Even when a failure arises, you have to think quickly and take appropriate action. These are a few of the big challenges of the game that are exciting and fun.

To really fall in love with flying, play with the options in the custom panel. Try out various combinations and try to fly a plane that is a fragment of your imagination. Each combination has its own share of challenges, but it is fun too.

Quick Tips:

  • Know where you are going. Check your weather and flight plan. Pre-plan your flight and get familiar with your destination.
  • Run the checklists as you normally would. Once set to go, all paperwork is done, take your checklist and run it item by item. Don’t skip any item or, as they say, it will come back to bite you.
  • Once you are parked or at the gate, shut down the aircraft as per checklist instructions. Most single engines will require avionics off and mixture all the way back to shut down the engine/s.
