game day: evergrow – macstories

Many of the best games I've played on iOS recently remix elements of existing genres in new and unexpected ways. Evergrow by Imagility does just that, mixing puzzle, action, and tower defense elements into a fun, colorful game that keeps things interesting by throwing new details at you throughout the game.You control a cheerful block floating through space. The goal is to grow your character as big as possible by dragging other squares of the same color that float by into position, so they attach to your original block. If a different colored square approaches, you need to swipe it away before it collides with you and causes damage.Color matching forms the foundation of Evergrow, but there a lot more going on in the game. The physics of the squares adds a layer of complication and weight

marshmallow run kickstarter seeks to teach girls programming and design – macsto

Design Code Build and Girl Scouts San Diego are developing a curriculum to teach girls programming and design by building a game called Marshmallow Run. It’s an ambitious program to bring Marshmallow Run to life through Scratch, the web, iOS, and Android as a way to reach girls of all age levels and provide opportunities that will appeal to a wide variety of interests. To make the program a reality, Design Code Build and Girl Scouts San Diego launched a Kickstarter campaign to cover the cost of computers, meeting space, developer accounts, and other overhead.What’s unique about the Marshmallow Run campaign is its breadth. The project isn’t constrained by the programming platform chosen or other structural decisions that might limit its appeal. Design Code Build has developed the characters

narita boy -the retro futuristic pixel game

Narita Boy -The retro futuristic pixel game is a Kickstarter project for a pixel art game created by Studio Koba. I found out about this game design project while visiting the Behance profile of Eduardo "edujante" Fornieles, a freelance concept artist and founder of studio Koba currently based in Tokyo, Japan.

get the right shot – macstories

In my early pick for 2017’s “App Description of the Year,” Moment’s Eun Seong Kim tells a story about his frustration and disappointment after the dreaded “Storage Almost Full” message caused him to miss an exciting moment at a Toronto Raptors basketball game. It’s an elevator pitch that ends with the question that drew me to Moment: “What if I could keep video recording but only capture the last 5 seconds?”I instantly identified with Kim's hypothetical. When I’m shooting video, I’m often only looking for the 5 or 10 seconds of action, but I'm stuck with a multi-minute clip that I have to edit. Moreover, even though my iPhone has plenty of storage now, there’s a real chance I will run into the same problem in the future.After I tried Moment, I was sold  the app lets you record video for a

the nba hopes vr will expand its audience

When asked if watching in VR could end up distracting people from the game, Rogondino said he believes it's more like peeling another layer for the viewer. "Did people feel it was distracting when the game, or whatever they were watching, went from black and white to color?" he asked. "All of a sudden they were like, 'Oh my gosh, those flowers in the corner are so much more vivid than I ever thought they were.' Then eventually, over time, you adjust to watching that and if you ever went to black and white you would think, 'Oh my God. This is archaic.'"There are some downsides to the tech, though. For one, don't expect to watch games in high resolution with a VR headset, though that could change later on as VR production cameras improve. The other thing is, can your brain really handle a tw

everything you don't want to know about the nintendo switch

It does almost nothing out of the boxIf you bought a Nintendo Wii, Wii U or any of the company's portable 3DS systems, you had something to play right away. Wii Sports, Nintendo Land and the 3DS' AR games served as ambassadors to the new consoles, using games as a medium to teach new owners everything they needed to know about their new hardware. These were fun, contained experiences that added value to every console sold. The Nintendo Switch has nothing like that. According to early previews, leaks and reports, all a new Switch owner can do without buying a game is navigate a few menus, change the user interface's theme and make Nintendo Mii avatars -- and even that meager experience is hidden in the console's settings menu.There's no backward compatibilityIf previous Nintendo consoles ha

reds lose in istanbul, greens sweat to beat unics | sports

Olympiakos went down at Fenerbahce on Thursday in a game it should have won in Istanbul given its double-digit lead, while Panathinaikos chalked up a hard-fought win over the Russians of Unics on Friday at home thanks to a buzzer-beating shot by Mike James.Olympiakos let a great chance to beat Fenerbahce away slip through its collective fingers, going down 67-64 in Turkey, but managed to retain a supreme head-to-head record over the Istanbul team.The Reds paid for the absence of captain Vassilis Spanoulis from one more game this season, as they failed to hold on to their 11-point advantage (58-47) at the start of the fourth quarter.Fenerbahce outplayed the Greeks in the latter part of the encounter to turn the game on its head and grab victory that consolidates it in the top four of the Eu

elite: dangerous 2.3 expansion adds camera, multicrew—and a certain 7 exoplanets

play both 'banner saga' games for free via twitch prime

Amazon and Twitch will kick in up to $200,000, and the game has already been bankrolled to the tune of $315,000, $115k over it's original goal. And if you're (rightfully) worried about any Kickstarter game, know that Banner Saga 2 actually came to PS4 ahead of schedule, so the development and porting teams know what they're doing.Amazon Prime has a lot of members, a lot of whom are probably on Twitch Prime. For those who aren't, Twitch is clearly trying to pump up its numbers, and the free download offer is certainly a smart way of doing it (hey, it convinced me). Anyone taking advantage of the offer will get a free piece of unspecified Banner Saga 3 content, to boot. If you're still on the fence, you can even sign up for a trial membership and get the free content anyway.

Dandenong Rangers did the job early then held on late to claim game one of their WNBL semi final series over Perth Lynx at Dandenong Stadium on Saturday night.The Rangers led by as much as 25 points early in the second half but had to withstand a desperate final term from the Lynx who closed to within seven points before a late run saw the Rangers home 73-66.

clipboard management with copied and workflow – macstories

One of the common challenges involving a switch from macOS to an iPad is the lack of desktop-like clipboard managers on iOS.By nature of the platform1 and technical restrictions imposed by Apple, apps like Pastebot or Alfred wouldn't be able to adapt their Mac capabilities to the iPad. Third-party iOS apps can't constantly monitor changes to the system clipboard in the background; similarly, it isn't possible for an iPad app to register as the handler of a keyboard shortcut at a system-wide level. An app would have to at least be currently in use via Split View to listen for clipboard changes, but, even in that case, it would have to be active to receive external keyboard commands.With these limitations, it's no surprise that clipboard managers aren't a flourishing category on the iPad App

the roots on how 'evolution of greatness' nba all-star musical came together

Before the Western and Eastern conferences duked it out at the 2017 NBA All-Star Game on Sunday, The Roots delivered an entertaining-yet-educational introduction with a basketball-themed musical titled The Evolution of Greatness. Tapping Jidenna, actor Michael B. Jordan, Hamilton star Daveed Diggs, DJ Jazzy Jeff and iconic hip-hop duo Run-D.M.C.'s Darryl McDaniels, the star-studded production paid tribute to every generation of the NBA, calling out the simplicity, style and superstardom in each.According to Tariq Trotter, more popularly known as Black Thought of The Roots, the idea was pitched two years ago when NBA All-Star Weekend landed in New York City, but the timing wasn't right for both parties. "The NBA came back to us this year, and it worked out," he tells Billboard. For Mardi Gr

ios 10.2.1 has reduced unexpected iphone 6s shutdown issues – macstories

Matthew Panzarino, writing for TechCrunch following a statement from Apple:
Over the past couple of iPhone versions users have complained of “unexpected” shutdowns of their devices. Some iPhone 6, 6s, 6 Plus and 6s Plus devices could basically go dark unexpectedly, forcing a user to have to plug them into an outlet to get them to power back on. Apple has been working on this very annoying bug and it says it has come up with a fix of sorts that should mitigate the problem on a majority of iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s devices. The fix is actually already on your iPhone if you have installed iOS 10.2.1 — something that around 50 percent of iOS users have already done. After letting the fix simmer on customer devices, Apple now has statistics to share on how it has improved the issue, citing 80 pe

tactical analysis: real madrid 2-0 espanyol | zidane’s men ease past an uninspir

Om Arvind tactically analyses how Real Madrid followed up their resounding win over Napoli in the Champions League with an extremely comfortable win over Espanyol. The game finished Real Madrid 2-0 Espanyol.Tactically, Zidane was found wanting in the exact same areas that Madrid struggled in against Osasuna (interiors coming too deep and little to no penetration through the center), but this time, it hardly mattered, as Quique Sánchez Flores’ team offered hardly any resistance, as they retreated into a defensive shell and refused to attack for the entirety of the game.Thus, a beautiful cross from Isco, which led to a headed goal from Morata, and a lethal counter-attack were all Los Blancos needed to dispose of their opponent.LineupsReal Madrid (4-3-3): Casilla // Carvajal Pepe Varane

raw power review – macstories

RAW Power is a powerful image editor reminiscent of Aperture that takes Apple’s discontinued pro photo editing tool a step further than Apple ever did. Whether you use RAW Power as a standalone image editor or as a Photos extension, what strikes me most about it is that with a little experimentation and patience, it’s accessible regardless of whether you consider yourself a pro user.Before Photos, Apple had two photography apps: iPhotos for average consumers and Aperture for pros. In 2014, Apple discontinued Aperture. Around the same time, Apple evolved iPhoto into Photos, bringing the macOS and iOS apps that go by that name closer together from a feature set standpoint. That left pros and ‘prosumers’ who relied on Aperture in a bind. There are alternatives like Adobe’s Lightroom, but if y
