Time Crash at Midwest Media Expo 2015

At Midwest Media Expo, we were treated to see a wonderful band that really stood out to us. They were part of the concert we saw following the Harp Twins and before Steam Powered Giraffe. Time Crash is comprised of Ronen Kohn on vocals and guitar, Dave Kitsberg on his custom built GuiTARDIS and vocals, Michael Fye on bass and vocals, Andrew Rice on drums, and Christopher Rice on Steel Guitar/Tricone. Inspired by Doctor Who, this group rocked out Midwest Media Expo! The energy they displayed in their show was phenomenal and really showed they loved what they played. They encouraged the crowd to come in front of the stage and enjoy the show and even did a very energetic cover of “500 Miles” which the crowd was really into. During the concert we caught on Friday, they were joined by Matt Sernaker of Random Gibberish, and they also had the pleasure of being joined by Ellen McLain (voice of GlaDOS) to perform “Still Alive” during their concert on Saturday. Time Crash has already released an EP called Little Amelia and their full-length album REGENERATION. Continue reading…

Run like the wind with Wind Runner!

Wind Runner is a side scrolling platform hybrid where your objective is to get as far as you can while collecting as many stars as possible. Controls are very basic and simple, as you would expect for a mobile game. Your character is constantly running and you just tap once for your character to jump or double tap for a double jump spin. The stages are random and you are trying to either jump over obstacles, jump over (or on) enemies, or jump over pits on your mission to keep going.

If you end up hitting an enemy or falling in a pit, it will display your game results that will show your best record and how you did this round and your final score. You also obtain amounts of gold which can be used to buy items, level up your character, buy a new character, or even obtain a new mount.

The character you originally play as is Chloe a treasure hunter but you can also unlock Stella a Monster Hunter, Leo an Uncharted Explorer, and Kylie a Dark Princess. Each character has their initial startup ability like Chloe’s Score/Gold +7%. Leveling up these character’s using gold can help how long an item effect lasts.

Items exist to help you during the stage in the game. These vary from a Magnet which draws all the stars to you without having to jump, a Cloud bridge that can help you not worry about pitfalls if you are on a straight stretch of land, Invincibility where your character gets bigger and is immune to enemies for a set period of time, and more. There are also boosters you can buy using gold before you enter the stage such as a Start Dash which you get to fly 400m at the start, Shield which shields you from the initial first damage, Last Spurt which you get to fly for three seconds at the end to try to increase your score and star count, and Relay which allows you to continue with a relay character.

Pets are unlockable to aid you in your run. They have different abilities that can aid you. There are also different mounts available that possess unique skills as well. To keep you logging in daily, the game offers log in bonuses of items or goods that will aid you as well! They also encourage users to log in with their Facebook and get free rewards that can equate to a $5 value.

While requiring no purchase at all to play the game and no daily limits or restrictions, the game does offer a shop for those in a rush or impatient enough to earn rewards through gameplay. Users can purchase rubies (used to unlock characters and other content) starting at $0.99, Change in rubies for more gold, or also buy additional boost packages starting at $0.99.

While this game is not a must by any means, it is a wonderful time killer with some good graphics. It is really nice that there are no types of limit to the gameplay and really tries to push rankings and scores to make it competitive. It’s really simple to play and I found myself drawn to trying to beat my previous scores for more time than I would care to admit.
