Strikefleet Omega

RH Numbers

If you watched Battlestar Galactica, the basic premise of Strikefleet will be instantly familiar. Alien hostiles destroy man’s homeworld and pulverise its armed forces leaving only one fleet, Omega. Its mission is to carry on the fight and hunt down the Hive Queen and hopefully save the outer colonies from ending up as cinders too. As you warp across the galaxy, you deploy your command ship’s fighters to fend off wave after wave of attackers, build more ships in the surviving fleet shipyards and upgrade those already in the armada.

The knack is knowing when, and in what direction, to launch your fighters and how to position your ships both in relation to each other and the edge of the screen. Scroll your ships to the left and you can see what’s happening far to their right but you are then vulnerable to attack from the other side. As Commander Adama said at Ragnar Anchorage, "That’s a bad tactical position."

Traffic Wonder HD

RH Numbers

A game that involves route planning, road congestion avoidance and fuel economy doesn’t sound like a laugh a minute but Traffic Wonder is actually a rather clever idea. The aim is to simply get the cars into their respective coloured garages. However, you need to plan each route to avoid collisions and cover the shortest distance. The early levels are easy but things quickly get more complex as routes become more circuitous, petrol more limited and more cars of different speeds are introduced.

The game has some neat touches like the way cars slow to take tight bends and their little indicators flash on and off. Basic gameplay is easy – just drag a coloured route from car to destination – but working out the best route and putting temporary stop signs and such in the right place is altogether more of a challenge. One for the inner Al Gore in us all. ®
