The platform was my iPhone due to it is always on me, but currently I'm playing on the pantech element tablet because the big screen nice when I'm at home.

The game is "Robot Unicorn Attack 2"

The version was just updated to 1.2. I can't wait to see what killer upgrades are to be had, but its hard to improve on what is all ready such an awesome....

Player, the unicorn!!!

That's a state of the art UV N-7 body equipped with tentacles of horror, void piercer horn an chronoscopic wings making it the fastest 'corn this side of the celestial sea.

The why is because its only got two controlls. Dash and jump. Plus I get to listen to the never ending story theme on repeat for hours on end collecting fairies and dashing giants before they get me with their solar beams. Its like I'm back I sixth grade and I just fell into a portal in Bobby Sue Nicholsons trapper keeper.

Did a market research study on this game a couple weeks ago. Can't talk specifics per a NDA but I can say improvements are on the way and seem pretty interesting. Certainly addressed most of the small issues I had.

I've played a lot of games, what gets the favorites the most is what speaks to me perhaps on an emotional level the deepest. A lot of games have nostalgic value within. But games that I have ever enjoyed the most were multiplayer ones that brought people together within a great and balanced concept for a cooperative effort against other humans.

While I won't say what games were my favorites, their names are irrelevent, I can say I am hunting for a new game. There are a lot of really terribly balanced games, plenty of play to win or they simply lack essential features. What I'd enjoy most is a multiplayer game with excellent matchmaking, no pay to win, and little to no way for the game to be imbalanced.

A lot of multiplayer games cannot be balanced because in single matchups, there is so much variety in what each person may have, it often comes down to a game of rock paper scissors and that feels kind of pointless to try and compete against. What I am getting at is, games where everyone starts out with the same equipment, abilities, gear or whatever you want to call it and that is it for the match. That is balance, anything else is non-sense.

Some might argue that my vision of balance would grow stale. Absolutely, if there weren't different modes. Even a game like dota can be balanced if everyone had the same hero. Some people seem to want to play a game that is based around finding an advantage and exploiting it. I want to play a game based around skill. I had a machine gun, you had a shotgun so you won in the settings we confronted each other, it just seems like less than a game and more like a shallow attempt at strategy.

If you are a strategy gamer, play a real time strategy game.

It's hard to beat chess as far as games go.

When it comes to games that are essentially just a computer that gets you to push buttons wasting your life brain and time, the heavy price society will pay for the trillions of man hours wasted has yet to be determined. If you think about it playing video games isn't too many steps away from being plugged into the Matrix.
