“Snake Off” is an exciting upgrade of the classic snake game. Built with appealing sound effects and graphical stars that put you at the hype of rapid length growth, this snake game upgrade delivers an exciting experience to gamers.

Here is a detailed overview of the game’s features, how it works, how it compares with other traditional versions, and a full game review.

Game Features

This has two game options; The endless game in which you play without limits, and the timed option in which you play within a five-minute countdown. In mobile devices, the game has additional features that can allow you to:

  • Add a new prop by eating the stars that pop up, which increases your snake’s length.
  • Add kill effects to beautify the way your snake’s body would look like once it’s killed.
  • Create a personal space where you can showcase your game records and skins to friends and other gamers.
  • Have many skins that you can quickly preview before spending your gold tokens to purchase them.
  • View top ranking players on the leaderboard.

Game Interface

You can play “Snake Off” both online and offline. Each player who joins the game starts with a short snake, which he or she feeds with colored spots, stars, and the other dead snakes to increase its length until it dominates the other players’ snakes. To rank up to the top, players need speed and strategy. They have to feed their respective snakes and avoid colliding with other snakes. If you hit another player’s snake, you die.

Controlling the snake on your mobile device is simple and straightforward, a joystick (the round cursor with a circular dot) controls its direction, and a speed-up button (the round cursor with a lightning strike) increases the speed at which the snake moves.

Social Experience

Many traditional snake game versions are quite similar to “Snake Off.” They have leaderboards like “Snake Off” and also allow several players to participate in the same game. But “Snake Off” does more than merely offering one platform for gamers to enjoy. It incorporates Agora.io’s SDK to enhance the game’s player engagement. This Agora technology for mobile gaming enables gamers to enjoy chatting right within the game. The in-demand voice commands and sound effects turn the game into an exciting virtual field. The technology gives you 20 percent lower CPU usage and 50 percent lower RAM usage, which helps to reduce data consumption when playing.

What Make ‘Snake Off’ Exciting

  • Easy to play.
  • Suitable for all ages.
  • Engaging sound effects.
  • Ability to showcase your achievements.

The Negative Side of the Game

  • Highly addictive.
  • Players who play as a visitor have no option of keeping their records.
  • Players can lose all their hard-earned records and achievements without recovering them.

With the upgrade of the classic favorite and Agora.io’s SDK, “Snake Off” is probably taking mobile gaming to the next level. It’s no doubt living up to its official slogan, “More Play, More Fun.”

RollerCoaster Tycoon Classic, available for Android through the Google Play store, is a mobile version of the first two RollerCoaster games that is almost as perfect as fans of the franchise would want it to be. The Roller Coaster Tycoon games have been a mainstay of the virtual theme park genre for what seems like forever.

There have been attempts at bringing the series to mobile before, with the free to play RollerCoaster Tycoon Touch currently available. If your only experience with RCT up until now is with the ‘Touch’ game, then this will initially feel a lot more difficult to play, with the slick 3D interface from Touch replaced by a more traditional isometric viewpoint, and menus that are far more difficult to navigate.

However, dig a little deeper and you will find that this is by far the better, more accomplished game with genuine depth and layers of strategy than just don’t exist in RCT Touch.

RollerCoaster Tycoon has always been about creating a theme park from scratch, managing your guests and of course, designing custom roller coasters. That is all present and correct here, and you get 95 scenarios to play through, some of which will take you hours to pass. There are hundreds of rides to discover and build, and it is great to hear your guests scream as they whizz around one of your latest creations.

RCT is a sim, which means that there is a lot to learn and plenty of menus to navigate. This leads me to one of the problems with this version of the game, which is that it is incredibly fiddly to create complex coasters and to go deep into the menus, due to the nature of the small screened, touch based format. I think the developer has down fairly well just getting the game playable at all on a small screen, but I believe a bit more work could have gone into the interface to get it to a more fluid and natural place.

The only other gripe I have is that there are extra scenarios to buy, which I don’t agree with in a premium game; if you are paying for the game up front then everything should be included.

Aside from that, this really is a joy to play. The little isometric rides are gorgeous, especially the way the coaster trains chug around the crazy tracks you can create, and the look of the game is a real treat, and goes to show that you don’t need fancy flybys and camera angles to create a good-looking theme park game.

If you were a fan of these games in the past, then I highly suggest giving this a look, especially if you don’t mind dealing with a fiddly interface. If you have never played a RollerCoaster Tycoon game before, but want something a bit meatier than what other theme park games can offer on mobile, then this is one to watch and is worth every penny of the asking price.

(Ad) EaseUS: Stage Your Very Own Digital Miraculous Recovery

Do you ever have episodes of anxiety about what would happen to all your work and data if your computer or hard drives ever suffered a serious crash? You’re not alone. As the world becomes more dependent on technology, and many products and industries become more enmeshed in the digital realm, the threat of losing it all thanks to a virus or computer error becomes a serious concern for many people. Of course, back-ups will exist in most cases, but hard drives and computers are never 100% reliable; and it’s an unfortunate fact that every single hard drive will crash eventually. This is exactly why you need some dependable recovery technology like EaseUS on your side.

EaseUS have been in the business of recovering seemingly lost files for a long time, so they know what they’re talking about. Unlike other data recovery software, they also make it extremely easy to accomplish. When you hear the words ‘data recovery’ most people immediately picture diving into the digital depths of their computer’s OS, or else taking the back off their hard drive and recircuiting motherboards. It doesn’t have to be anywhere near that complicated and EaseUS understands this very well.

Instead, they employ a simple three click procedure to recover deleted files with their Data Recovery Wizard, which lets users with no previous recovery experience (let’s face it, that’d be most of us) search out their missing pieces with relative ease. First, the software completes a Quick Scan, to ascertain the lay of the land using a basic algorithm. The next step is called a Deep Scan, which explores the drive sector by sector. Finally, the recoverable files are previewed to the user, who can then select which ones they want to retrieve.

It really is that easy. The bottom line is that if every other avenue has failed and your files are still in absentia, then you need to a professional data recovery software to do the job; EaseUS is one of the best ones on the market. Even better, it’s free in its basic package form, and can be installed on Windows or Mac. If you’re worried about digital corruption, or have recently lost some important files, let EaseUS help you get back on track today, and protect against any future errors!

If you have ever run into a situation where you become completely helpless in accessing your computer due to losing password, then you have come just to the right place to undo your situation. And even if you have not confronted such a situation, then also the content of this article below will definitely be of great assistance to you in the nearby future if you happen to face any similar kind of ordeal. 

Precisely saying, losing or forgetting a password has become a common norm in today’s life where you have to mug up such a long list of passwords and user accounts, it is quite obvious for a user to be oblivious about a certain computer password. Keeping that in note, various methods and tools have been articulated to resolve this issue of unprecedented computer locking. Though most of them fail to live up to your expectation, and you finally end up with endless frustration, we have carefully chosen the right and appropriate methods for you to save you the trouble of searching for it yourself. 

So without wasting any more time, let’s explore the methods detailed below one by one.

# 1. To Use Passfolk SaverWin Software

This is the most accurate and hardcore software to deal with these kind of issues. The Passfolk SaverWin can actually disable the password security by manipulating the registry keys so that the when you turn on the locked computer, you are not ridicules with the password prompting any longer. But in order to know the workings of this tool, it is very essential to know the specifications of this tool to help you get familiar with it.

Passfolk SaverWin Specifications:

  • There is no need of re-configuration of OS.
  • No data is lost during the process of password disabling.
  • Windows desktop OS, like 10/ 8/ 7/ Vista/ XP as well as the Windows Server OS, such as 2003/ 2008/ 2012/ 2016, etc can be smoothly run with this tool.
  • The tool compatibility is extended to UEFI, DSI and Legacy BIOS based computers also.
  • No extra disk image burning tools are needed.
  • Internet connection is not mandatory.
  • Customer services are open 24×7 to answer your queries.

Once you get acquainted with the tool’s specifications, you must be prepared with a few basic things – An empty disk; an accessible computer; and the Passfolk SaverWin program file. 

After you are fully prepared with everything let’s head on with the user guide of this tool. 

It’s quite simple, firstly download and install the setup file on any spare working computer and open it up with full admin privileges to exercise full authority. From the main UI screen of the tool, click on “USB or CD/DVD” button to continue. Next insert your empty disk and click either on “Burn USB” or “Burn CD/DVD” to burn the ISO image files to the disk. 

When the burning is completed, you will be shown a “Burning Successfully!” message. Simply click “Ok” to abort the burning process and continue.

Eject the bootable disk and reconnect it to the locked computer. Enter the BIOS utility settings and change the boot order to boot from the inserted disk. After the ISO file are loaded to the locked computer, click on “Reset Password” and then “Reboot” button one after another to begin the password disabling process. 

It will take some time before your computer is restarted, but surprisingly when it turns on, there will be no password enquiry any longer. 

# 2. Reset Password with Microsoft Account

If you wish to go for an alternate way apart from Passfolk SaverWin, MS account can help you to do away your job is few simple steps. As you might know that Microsoft account credentials are equally accessible by all the Microsoft services, be it Hotmail, Xbox, Skype, etc. Thus if you have got MS account password security enabled on the sign-in screen, then by accessing any other Microsoft service, you can reset the password easily. In order to do that, visit https://account.live.com/password/reset. Click on “I forgot my Password” option from the main webpage that turns up. Type in your Microsoft credentials and hit “Enter”. Now you are supposed to get a verification code (OTP), so you have to choose any particular mode, be it mobile or spare email-ID to receive it. Once you acquire it, enter it in the code field on the page, and click “Next”.

Now set a new password and save the changes. Now restart your computer and enter the recently generated MS account password on the sign-in page to get clear access to the locked account. 

But in case you had not enabled the MS account security facility on the login screen prior to losing your password, then this method would not help you in any way.

There is another alternate method that you can try if you are still satisfied with the above two methods. Continue with your reading to know them in detail.

# 3. Reset Password with Cain & Abel

Cain & Abel is a very old and popular Windows Password cracking tool easily available on the internet. It usually implements hash tag algorithms and runs many simulations accompanied with brute force attack to retrieve the lost or forgotten password. So initially you have to install the software on any working computer by downloading it from its official website online. 

Burn the ISO image file to any blank disk to create the bootable disk and plug-in the studded disk to the locked down computer. Just wait for a moment before the program is loaded on the main interface screen. After it is loaded, just open the boot key options to locate the drive where you had installed your operating system in the beginning. 

All the registered user profiles will be displayed on the tool’s screen and you have to deliberately choose the locked account. Next right-click on the account and follow the following pathway:

Brute-Force Attack > NTML Hashes.

And that’s it! Your password will be shown on the user interface screen after being decoded by the tool. Restart your computer and use the recovered password to access your locked out account.

One thing you should note before using Cain & Abel is that in spite of being an old and famous program it takes a lot of time, sometimes several hours to complete the recovery of password due to being outdated.

Conclusion:

All the methods mentioned above in the article are potent enough to give you the best result you are so seeking, but the last two methods have got certain discrepancies which do not make them perfectly suitable for your compromised computer. Thus it will be safer to rely solely on Passfolk SaverWin for the surest results. But once you get inside your locked user admin account and create a new account password, make sure to note down the password somewhere safely so that you can use it again in the future if need be.

Saboteur II: Avenging Angel is the iPhone and iPad version of a game that we recently reviewed for Android. Now available for iOS, Saboteur II: Avenging Angel does indeed share a lot with its Android brethren, so here are some quotes from my original review, all of which hold true for this version;

The new sections are huge compared to the original, and by several orders of magnitude. New story, told through Metal Gear-style radio chatter, new areas to explore and new puzzles to solve. It is a genuinely impressive thing to see; the developer could easily have released this as a third game in the series, but instead left it as a lovely surprise for returning fans.

New and remixed music is also here, and is a treat. In fact, the whole game stands up as a demonstration of just how these sort of things can be done. If more developers porting older games to mobile took the stance of not simply refining what is already there, but actually adding new and fresh content to decades old games, then the marketplace for such games would be a far more exciting place.

Saboteur II still holds up today as an interesting and fun adventure game, and the addition of new levels and ideas just takes it to another place. If you were a fan of these games in the 80’s, then this is a must buy, and I would still recommend this to anyone looking for a deeper and more thoughtful action game than you can usually find on mobile.

The ‘Avenging Angel’ of the title is Nina, the sister of the original game’s mysterious ‘Ninja’ character, which is interesting as Nina was one of the first ever female protagonists in a video game, released in 1987, the same year Nintendo introduced Samus Aran, another female lead, into the world of videogames.

 

Nina is set the task of sabotaging a nuclear missile by altering the course it is going to take. To do this she must traverse caves, bunkers and other environments, composed of single screens which are navigated from a side on perspective, and although this is more of a stealth puzzle game, there are some platforming elements to be found.

This extended cut of the original shares many of the bonuses from the Android version, including the excellent extra stages. New remixed music, the ability to choose different graphics and MFI controller support are all in, as is the extra addition of in-game achievements. This version is also free, with in-app purchases to unlock the full game.

Saboteur II: Avenging Angel is a superb updating of a classic game, and still deserves attention, both from long time fans and those looking for some fresh stealth based action.

Saboteur II, available for Android through the Google Play store, is a remake of an ancient ZX Spectrum game of the same name. You play as a ninja, out to sabotage a billionaire’s base by retrieving a disk and setting off a bomb, with the action viewed from the side as you sneak around, taking out robotic enemies (who now have handy new life bars), exploring various facilities and solving puzzles.

Saboteur II for Android is very much a game of two halves. The first half would be what any gamer who played the original back in the day would expect from an upgraded mobile port. The game has been throughly updated, with decently usable touch screen controls, a variety of graphics modes and a slick interface that does a good job of replacing what was previously available. The addition of bluetooth controller options is most welcome, and this game also takes full advantage of BlackBerry’s physical keyboard if you have one of the new BlackBerry Android devices.

Like me, you would expect to get to the end of the game, as you did many years ago and shoot away by helicopter. What will be surprising to you is that the game doesn’t stop there, in fact that is where it really begins, as there is a massive adventure plonked at the end of the old campaign.

 

The new sections are huge compared to the original, and by several orders of magnitude. New story, told through Metal Gear-style radio chatter, new areas to explore and new puzzles to solve. It is a genuinely impressive thing to see; the developer could easily have released this as a third game in the series, but instead left it as a lovely surprise for returning fans.

Idle clickers have been around for a while; they mostly consist of players grinding out simple actions in order to earn a particular resource, which can then be used to progress further in the game. Despite their apparent simplicity, they’re actually an addictive little format which has proved popular with players all over the world; it seems they’re the perfect minigame to keep your thumbs busy on a dull commute. If you take this tried-and-tested idle clicker format and infuse it with something new, chances are you’d have a smash hit game. Final Fortress – Idle Survival does just that, and does it extremely well; it’s free and out now on iOS and Android.

Final Fortress pits you against a horde of hungry zombies, each desperate to get their undead rotting hands on you. It’s post-apocalypse, and it’s up to you to muster as many survivors as you can, construct said fortress, and defend your new home against the unrelenting waves of evil dead. It’s a pretty cool premise already, and when you add in the sumptuous, pitch-perfect graphics and design, you have a formidable game on your hands.

What sets this game apart from similar idle clickers is the way you do battle with the zombies. This is a new update the developers at Alley Labs have come up with, and it’s a smart one. You click to build your tower, but you must also ensure that each floor of your masterpiece is outfitted with appropriate weapons to repel the undead. These battle segments inject a lively bit of action into proceedings, and also adds a nice ‘ticking clock’ to your construction efforts; you’ll want to build your fortress as quick as possible to be in with the best chance of survival.

This unique spin on the classic idle clicker format (strange that an app genre can now be referred to as ‘classic’ but there you go) makes Final Fortress – Idle Survival a hard one to put down. Fans of zombie films and TV shows will enjoy the bleak but quirky world the creative team dreamt up, while fans of idle clickers and action-adventurers will have a field day. Take up arms against the undead today at the App Store and Google Play!

In a rut with your fitness routine? If you’re tired of doing the same thing over and over or are worried you’re not pushing yourself hard enough, the BetterMe: Weight Loss Workouts app is the perfect solution. The app will provide you with detailed workout and meal plans that are completely customized for your personal goals. So whether you want to lose weight or have a more toned body, the BetterMe app can definitely help!

There are a few easy steps you’ll need to take to get started with your fitness routine overhaul. First, download the app from the App Store or Google Play. You’ll have a free, seven day trial to start with, which includes access to all of the app’s features. If you decide you’d like to continue after the first week, you can pay per month for your subscription or a one-time flat fee of $59.99. Then, you just need to answer some simple questions, like your age, weight, and dietary preferences. You’ll also need to note what your personal goals are, which parts of your body you’d like to focus on, what your preferred intensity level of exercise is, and how often you’re physically active. Your answers to these questions will help the BetterMe team of experts determine exactly what foods and exercises you should be doing to reach your goals.

Once you get your customized meal plan and fitness routine, you’ll be able to get on track in no time. The detailed meal plan means you’ll never have to figure out which particular foods to be eating for each meal. You’ll also step up your fitness game by following the specific workouts you need to do to target your problem areas. There are handy instructional videos that will ensure you’re doing all of the exercises correctly, so you’ll always feel like you have the perfect amount of guidance to increase your fitness abilities. The BetterMe app also provides helpful support by sending you reminders and tips to keep you motivated throughout the week.

The only complaint you might have is if you want a ton of variety during the week with your recommended foods and workouts. The weekly plans are pretty strict, so they don’t allow for a lot of flexibility. However, if rigidity is what you need to actually step up your fitness game and to start eating more healthily, then the BetterMe app is an ideal option.

Become a master of fitness by downloading the BetterMe app today!
