Combat Arms Review

Combat Arms is a first person shooter developed by Nexon game studios. Nexon is a South Korean game studio that released games such as Dungeon Fighter, Mabinogi, and Maple Story.

This attempt at a first person shooter is good, better than most. It is free to play, with some premium item that can be purchased with NX, or currency for Nexon games that can be purchased with real life money. These include special versions of in game guns, and fancy uniforms.

Among the game modes, there are 'Team Death Match', 'Free for All', 'Capture the Flag', and other first person shooter staples. Fresh game modes include 'Blood Money'.

'Blood Money' is a game mode that pits to teams against each other, one team defends a bank while the other tries to break in, and steal all the gold. On the map made for this game mode, it is almost a constant occurrence of spawn camping. Spawn camping is where one team will camp at the others spawn point, and kill their opponents.

Another unique game mode is fire team. Players enter a single team for cooperative missions against computer AI enemies. This serves as then games campaign mode, as each mission has a story behind it, they all have objectives that must be completed.

Another mode is 'Infection' where all players spawn, and then a few seconds later one player randomly changes into a zombie. The match goes until all humans are infected, or the time limit runs out.

There is also a mode called 'Spy Hunt'. Where one player becomes a supper spy, and the others must hunt him down. Weapons include all the typical guns you see in games that have modern era combat. Melee weapons include, among other things, sickles, which are unique. Players will often spam equipment like health packs, or turrets.

The game has very little connection problems, or drops if any at all. One of the only annoying features is the voice chat, which does not have a hands free mode. However, this can be over looked by playing with friends and using Skype to chat with them.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is a first person shooter released by Infinity Ward. It is the sequel to Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. It is the one of the many games in the call of duty series.
Starting with Modern Warfare, Infinity Ward ditched the World War II aspect, to focus on games that grip closer to current events. Modern Warfare 2 is set after Modern Warfare and introduces a new character.

The player starts teaching some rebels how to shoot. Then afterwards the player is sent to run a course.

The speed, and precision of the accuracy of the player, helps the game purpose the difficulty level for the player. This difficulty is completely up to the player though. After this, the player is sent on various missions.

Eventually the players' actions will cause a war between America, and Russia, with an actual Russian invasion. War with Russia, and Arab nations, as a side note, is the most common themes for shooters these days.

Guns are nothing different either. Weapons range from M9 pistols to Vector Submachine guns and M4 Carbine. The enemies also have the traditional HK G3s, and Ak47s. One of the most popular levels in the game include a snowmobile chase, with a single pistol to defend yourself .

The game also travels to Brazil so we gamers can look at the festivals, and shoot them up for the sake of our entertainment. The multiplayer portion of this game has many static game types, nothing new.
There is a leveling system though, which goes to show the amount of time someone has played, and their skill level. Match making is flawed though as it will often place a level one against level fifty's or something similar.

Being a Call of Duty game, it also brings along the constant connection interruption problems and the host migrations. Also included is an arcade type game mode. Players go up against waves of enemies in set missions. As players beat a mission, they get a star. They receive one star for each difficulty level they beat, totaling three possible starts per level. As players earns total stars they unlock more levels..

Mario Kart 64 Video Game Cult Classic

Mario Kart 64 is a cult classic among video games. It was originally planned with the title Super Mario Cart R but the name was changed for various reasons. There are a total of eight playable characters, and fourteen power ups within Mario Kart 64.

Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Toad, Yoshi, Bowser are old characters. Ditching KoopaTroopa and Donkey Kong Jr. from Super Mario cart, Nintendo brought in Wario, and Donkey Kong. Originally the game's creators were going to use a MagiKoopa instead of Donkey Kong.

The characters are arranged in weight classes in Mario Kart 64. Peach, Toad, and Yoshi make up the light Weight class. They have the highest acceleration and top speed in the game, but they tend to slide out more. The light weight is recommended for use on race modes only. They are a bit out classed in battle mode of Mario Cart 64.

Mario and Luigi make up the middle weight class. They have the perfect mix of both light weight and heavy weight classes. This makes the middle weights the best choice form beginning players.
The heavyweight class consists of Wario, Donkey Kong, and Bowser. These Karts are the slowest but have the best handling and ramming abilities. They come in handier for the Battle mode rather than the other modes.

Power ups are as follows; Bananas and Bunch of Bananas can be shot in front of or in back of the player's cart and leaves the peel in place until someone hits it and spins out. The Boo power up, which is named after the Mario character Boo, this power up ghosts the player so they can't be affected by rival's power ups or some hazards on the courses. It allows the user to pass right through other karts and retrieve an item from an opponent.

Fake item boxes closely resemble the genuine ones spread throughout the course. The only difference is that the question mark is upside down and inverted and if someone is to touch it will stop them momentarily.

Green Shells and Triple green shells are a projectile round that will bounce off walls, and are line of sight weapons. Warning these may hit the user. Red and triple red shells are projectile weapons that home in on the person in front of the user, or if the user is in first it'll travel through the course till it hits the next available racer.

Mushroom come in single or triple bundle and will give the player a speed boost when used, word of caution during the boost period steering will be close to unresponsive so it's wise to use them on straight-aways.

Golden mushrooms, give the player unlimited amount of boosts for a short period of time. The star makes the user invincible accept to certain track hazards, hitting other karts will send them flying. The lightning bolt power up will turn everybody accept the user super small.

Having a strategy between character selection, and using power ups will help the player be more successful in Mario Kart 64.

Mario Kart 64 Game

Mario Cart 64 was Developed by Nintendo EAD, or Nintendo Entertainment Analysis and Development, and published by Nintendo in 1997 in North America for the Nintendo 64. Mario Kart 64 includes characters from the Mario series, and Mario's Nemesis Donkey Kong. This game offers a unique experience from other racing games.

The players' race on circuit tracks, which represent different worlds from the Mario and Donkey Kong series. While racing these tracks in Mario Cart 64 various power ups can be collected through floating cubes with question marks on them.

The cubes when passed through will shatter, and the player will get a random power up among the 14 possible ones. When the box is picking the player may hit the use item button to stop the wheel prematurely.

The main game modes are Grand Prix, Time Trial. Gran prix allows for up to 2 human players to go up against a field of computer controlled players in Gran Prix cup series comprised of four courses. There are four cup races in total. They range from shorter courses to longer ones. After each race points are awarded to the players, higher places equal more points. At the end the scores are added up and the highest scorer wins.

There are three difficulty modes to chose from, 50cc, 100cc, 150cc. CC stands for cubic centimeter and refers to the engine size of the cart. There is also a bonus mode that can be unlocked that allows players to race on reversed tracks.

Time Trial is what its name suggests the player must set a course recorded and has the option to race a track ghost, a player is given three speed boosts to start with, and gets no other power ups throughout the race. The ghosts are the only information that's not saved on the cartridge, and use almost a whole memory pack.

The next two modes Versus and Battle, are mainly multiplayer modes. Versus is where up to four players can race against each other on one of the 16 courses in the game. Battle mode is where instead of racing players are one arena type courses, and must knock balloons off their opponents' karts. This is achieved by either ramming into an opponent or hitting them with a power up.

"Perfect Dark": A Great Game

Perfect Dark is a first person shooter developed by Rare Ltd. and released for the N64. Perfect Dark is set in a futuristic world where the player assumes the role of a female secret agent. This character is sent through a series of missions.

The missions are made up of a few levels. The difficulty levels are Agent, Secret Agent, and Perfect Agent. In the higher difficult levels special gadgets like shields are missing and the auto aim ability is turned off.

Alongside the main campaign there is a cooperative mode. In this mode two human players, or up to three computer controlled players take on the missions together. Only one human player has to make it to the end with all objectives completed though.

Counter Operative mode is an exclusive mode to this Perfect Dark. Two human players are required for this mode. One player assumes the role of the main character, while the other player assumes the role of an enemy somewhere in the level, and attempts to stop the other player.

If the counter operative is killed they will re-spawn as another enemy. The counter operative cannot kill the other player's allies to try to make them fail their mission outright.

The weapons range from fists to assault rifles, rockets launchers, and even some alien weapons. The icing on the cake is that most of the weapons have two fire modes. Pistols in second fire mode will cause the player to pistol whip. Shotguns get dual bursts which can be useful in crowded rooms.

An assault rifle may be thrown on the ground as a proximity mine, Rocket launcher is in secondary fire mode become guided launchers. Some grenades with bounce like a pinball, and will detonate if an enemy gets close to it. It is often thought by some to be a clone of Golden Eye 007.

The multiplayer combat plays almost the same in Perfect Dark, but the graphics are brushed up, and weapons along with multiplayer maps from Golden Eye 007 may be unlocked if the player does certain things in single player.

Multiplayer modes in Perfect Dark include most of the staples, like death matches, king of the hill, and capture objective type modes. Most multiplayer features and the entire campaign can only be accessed if the player has an expansion pack for their N64.

In 2010 it was ported to the Xbox 360 with graphic upgrades and some minor fixes by 4J Studios. It is available on the Xbox Live Arcade. Noting that it is an original Nintendo title, it was not released on the Nintendo network because Microsoft acquired Rare Ltd.

Minecraft Multiplayer Games

Minecraft's multiplayer is a big thing. It is more fun to explore the world of minecraft, and build with a friend. People set up dedicated servers, some make you pay for rights to build, and others make you pay to get into the server.

Having a friend or two to play with you makes the game more fun and a lot easier. Someone can watch your back while you mine now. It can also get a tad bit harder. More people playing means you can build a more elaborate and more complicated creation. Make sure the people you play with are trust worthy. You do not want them destroying something that you work hard on.

However, mostly any server you go into has a few simple don'ts. As in stuff that if you do this, your blacklisted. Blacklisting is a process in which a player's user name and ip address are blocked so there is no chance of them getting back into the server, and causing more trouble.

One of the major do not of any multiplayer server is not to grief. Griefing is destroying other peoples work on purpose. Griefiers usually do not stop at one person though; they usually attack a whole server. Most servers have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to this, first instance and you are out of there.

This is one of the purposes of a white listed server. A white listed server is a server that a player must get special permission to enter. A players username, and ip address are added to the list then they are allowed in. White listing and black listing are preventive measures for griefing.

There are also anti-griefing programs. However, a lot of mods or tools in minecraft can be used instead. While in a server for instance, a moderator can lock a certain area of the map where only a player or certain players can build or destroy things.

Players may also lock door, chests, and a few other things to their use only. They simple put private in brackets on a wooden sign, then hit enter to move down a line and type their in game name. If done correctly any other player trying to open the chest or door will get a permission denied message.

Cityville Bot

The Cityville bot will help a player to plant the crops. No longer does a player have to click every single plot of land to plant, carrots, corn, cranberries, eggplant, or the other crops within the game. Although planting these crops does not use energy it can still be time consuming if the gamer has a large field to plant in Cityville.

This bot will also harvest the Cityville crops, which can be a real time saver if there is a ton of crops to harvest. Some players have said that by using this cheat all the time you lower your chances of getting the special items, which help to complete the collections.
Not only will the bot collect rent on Cityville homes and apartment buildings but it will collect and supply business buildings automatically. This can save a player tons of time, even and even mouse clicks. It will boost your coins, energy, crops, and even experience quickly.
The new plug in for this Cityville bot will give unlimited coins so you can purchase all the businesses, crops, homes, apartments or decorations that you desire. The Zynga Company quickly patches any of the plugins, which give the unlimited coins, so if a player uses this bot he or she will need to locate a plug in maker who comes up with a new one often.
The neighbor plugin will allow players to visit and work on their neighbors' cities collecting the rent, crops or even to work on building the businesses. It will find energy from the crops, buildings, and collections and from friends and will help the player to utilize this energy in the best possible way. This plug in is an extra one to download for the Cityville bot but it's still free.
Players often complain that the Cityville bots quit working after a few days, it's because the Zynga Company patches them. If you just downloaded a working bot, and it does not seem to be working clear the cache, history, cookies and reboot your computer and try it again. I would be remiss if I published this article without a warning so here is your warning. Use of any bot on any Zynga game will get you banned from the game, so don't cheat. Just play Cityville, Farmville, or Mafia Wars as it was intended.

Overdrive Myspace Game

Myspace Overdrive is a racing game that is new to the biggest social networking site. In this game, members need to have a big racing crew, get it easily when one adds family and other friends in the game myspace Overdrive. You can get a huge racing crew and let us talk about cheats in the game.

If you enjoy racing cars and playing MMORPG games online then this game is the one for you. You can have a good-sized racing crew and it will help you, invite your friends to be on this crew.

One thing I really liked about this game was the sound effects, you see when you race against other crews in here you hear cars racing which is cool.
The sounds effects are not the norm for these MMORPG games so this is a nice change for a bit.
As you climb the levels, you will see that you need to increase your crew to complete the missions. This is the number one reason to enlist a big crew you can race more. So be sure to add your more to your crew so you can grow your crew easily without any cheats.
Add people to your crew by inviting all your friends or jumping a free train.
Purchase as many properties in myspace overdrive as you can, to get money rolling in to purchase equipment for your crew. The properties here are actually businesses that you operate. Have them bringing in to lots of money before you purchase the best equipment for your crew.
Toss most skill points on energy and let your equipment raise your defense and offense scores. Personally, with these types of games, I put the skill points I get for raising one level all on energy and the next time I level up I put one each on energy, defense, and offense.
Purchase equipment evenly. You would not want some of your crew racing with the best equipment while the others race with clunker cars or worse engage in foot racing.

When you begin Myspace Overdrive, you choose your name etc, as you do in any other game. Some are funny and some really suck big time, so please for the sake of us all, do not be vulgar.
A funny name is always better; give us something to laugh about. Think of it this way, if you would not want your grandma to see the name, and perhaps you should reconsider your choice on face book overdrive.

Bejeweled Twist

I really enjoyed playing bejeweled twist and I can easily see this becoming among my top games. I love the excitement that regular bejeweled and blitz gives me, but twist is more challenging. Perhaps it is because you have to twist those little gems to make them match before they explode that keeps a player twisting.
Perhaps it is the challenges that keep players twisting in hopes that they will score big. The entire game is challenging which slows down your progress but encourages you to keep playing it to master it.
There are 4 modes of game play classic, Zen, challenge and of course blitz. Watch out for the flame and lighting power gems, they can create havoc or pure enjoyment, and it really depends on how you look at it.
One twist can cause a whole number of gems to fall unexpectedly, which is very neat to watch. When a large group falls, it is hard to see all that occurs on the screen.
Instant replay of your best moves as far as gems crashing, cascades and of course the best removal. This is great for those times when you miss those golden parts of the game where you score huge because you were concentration so hard of winning.
The graphics in this game are very nice, and relaxing. The gems are plentiful, bright, and they shimmer at times.
People who enjoy views of outer space will love this. You will see space dust and stars that appear to move at the start and after you clear the screen, you will be treated to a space show and this includes a space ship tearing through the far reaches of outer space.
The sound effects in here are very nice, and they go well with the graphics. Of course, there is the option to turn them off but trust me most people will enjoy these.
There is music, which is nice, and sound effects when the gems explode. The player has the ability to turn off either of these, and switch the sound levels. I like the music so that level is high but the noise, which is made when the bombs explode, can get annoying at high levels so I turn this one down.
Bejeweled twist adds more excitement to the game of bejeweled and makes it even more addicting. Instead of simply flipping the gems, players need to rotate them and have to watch out for bombs, and lighting power gems.
I love the outer space theme and the animated effects of this game. It is something I have never seen in a game of this nature so that makes it new to me. Popcap games have a surefire hit with the bejeweled series and I cannot wait for the next one to arrive on the scene.

Frontierville is a game where the Wild West joins modern technology. The game was released in early June 2010 on Facebook and it quickly seen over six million visitors. Even Farmville was not that popular at first. In this Zynga game, players of Frontierville on the Facebook social networking site make a homestead in the west before it was won.
Personally, I thinking the trick into succeeding in this Frontierville game is enlisting all your friends and colleagues who are on Facebook into the game. With more neighbors, you can earn more points by visiting their farms and they can come visit your farm as well. Your neighbors can visit your farm by selecting your icon in their neighbor bar, but you as the player can also 'hire' your neighbor to come work on your homestead for just 50 coins. Similarly, you may visit your neighbors by clicking on their icon, but they may also hire you to come to work.
Actions and Rewards of Frontierville
Each action within the game will get the player a type of reward, such as picking the ripe fruit off a fruit tree will gain you experience and coins but occasionally other items such as extra energy, candy, or super special items will be rewarded. One can harvest not only the fruit but also crops, and of course feeding the animals will gain the player similar rewards.
In Frontierville, one can also chop the trees down, to gain wood, experience and of course coins. One can also clear the land of grass, wildflowers, caucus, skulls, and rocks. Any of these are can reveal a bear, or a rattlesnake, which the player will need to clobber for extra goodies such as food, coins, and experience points. These animals along with the fox and gopher will also get the player some special treasures, which range from bear meat, snake eggs, and a fox pelt, collected for more treasures.
Missions of Frontierville
A player is better off completing the missions as they come available, for when a player completes these missions they are handsomely rewarded. Missions are easy to complete and they are simple such as the player must plant 10 crops, clear 10 plots of grass, or clobber three snakes to get the reward. Currently I am on the mission to get married, but my spouse to be will not come to my homestead until I build the general store. I had to ask other players for materials to help finish the general store, and since the game is new it's taken me longer to build this.
Visitors to this page are more than welcome to leave their Facebook url below to gain neighbors on the Frontierville game.

More tips Frontierville

Frontierville is a game on Facebook where players get to virtually live out a life in the Wild West. Of course, there are cheats I am sure in this game but this article will focus on the tricks, tips, hints of the latest Zynga game, Frontierville.
Ask your family and friends who play games on Facebook to be your neighbor. Like the other games by Zynga Frontierville allow neighbors to visit other homesteads and do work. The benefit is to both the neighbor and the person who plays the game. Not only will both of you gain experience points and coins, but sometimes you may get energy or special goodies to help complete the collections.
Be sure to hire neighbors within the game for even more of the benefits. Coins, energy, food, and collectibles are all up for grabs.
Within your homestead on Frontierville, click on any completed building daily for a special bonus item. The bonus items vary daily, so check back once a day.
When a neighbor comes to visit and you are not playing the game they play as usual but there are added benefits to you as well. Take note of where the neighbors are standing when you log into the game and set fruit trees around the area. Cherry trees are the best because they give fruit, but by planting them around where the neighbors visit once you click the neighbor and accept their help the fruit trees will be picked.
Plant many cheery trees when you are first playing the Frontierville game because they always give a slice of pie and you can convert these to energy. Energy is very important in the game, but it is very important when one is just starting their game.
As far as crops go these people just starting, the Frontierville game and play often can plant crops of clover. It does not give much in the way of experience or profit but it does give a player a free sheep and 25 experience points when the collection of items is gathered. The clover collection consists of clover tea, clover, honey 4 leaf clover, a honeybee, and clover blossoms and when this collection is completed that is when a player gets the free sheep and the 25 experience points.
It's always smart to plant multiple crops of the same type of plant or purchase multiple types of the same animal to increase your chances of getting one of the collectibles. Just remember to plant them all at the same time that way they are ripe or ready to be harvested at the same time. Harvesting multiple things at once can give a Frontierville player a bonus.
When you visit someone's homestead on Frontierville click to publish that you were there, and that way it gets posted on your Facebook profile. Now when players see that posting on the profile they can click it and get a bonus they can use in the game.

Frontierville tips, hints, and cheats

Are you looking for some Frontierville tips, hints, and cheats? I have plenty here; I am now a Frontierville addict and play the game on a daily basis. Pest Prevention, collections, daily bonuses, crop placement, native flora, and fauna are all addressed in this guide to Frontierville. Use the comment section of this guide to find neighbors, simply put your Facebook URL in the section.
Tip #1
Do you hate those bear, gophers, snakes, and foxes? If you are like many of us and hate wasting energy clobbering or scaring them, simply move the crops or your animal away from the pests and leave the offenders where they are.
Tip #2
Put your buildings, or put fences around them and make the pests part of the scenery. Heck one could even put flowers around the pest and make a flower garden. I have also seen where some one put the benches and other decorations around the pest. Once you trap the pests, they will not show up again in the game and you will not need to worry about them.
Tip #3
If you like scaring the pests away, place your animals in the best possible place. Put chickens and geese which the pests love near the end of your game plot, this way when you clobber them it only take a few clobbers to get rid of them.
Tip #4
Hold off on trading in collections. Sometimes you need a burst of energy there, or whatever the prize is, therefore, it's better to allow the collections just to sit there.
Tip #5
Daily bonuses come from the buildings and the wagons, you are not limited to just one wagon, or house so add a few and collect the bonuses as you can.
 Tip #6
Running low on energy and need a quick fix, sell an adult pig or an adult ox. Both of these animals give you a lot of food. It's enough food for a breakfast, but if you sell a few at a time, it could provide a lunch or dinner there.
 Tip #7
Plant peanuts and peach trees when you can as these two crops will give you more food and your neighbors will get more food with these to crops when they help on your plot.
 Tip #8
Watch your Facebook feed for any references to Frontierville and add a comment to it. This lets the person know you play and who knows they might add you as a neighbor. Having many neighbors is beneficial to you and them as well.
Tip #9
Are you tired of weeds, cactus, and other crap in the game popping up all over? As you clear a spot, fence it in. The wild growing items will not cross the fence. Just be sure to close in the fence, by zooming right in on the game. Leave a small section near the edge of your plot undeveloped so that cactus, wildflowers, skulls and thorns can grow, you will need them for some missions.
Tip #10
Gift your friends on a daily basis. Skip the usual animals, crops and other items they can purchase on their own. Instead, send those building supplies, which will help them, better in the end.
Frontierville is a fun and addictive game, so enjoy it, as it's a good addiction. Load up on those neighbors and you can begin by adding your name to the comments section below.

Screen loads to Tropical treasure store, Margaraitaville plays in the background. Let it load, soon you will find yourself at the Oasis where Captian Frank will show you around. You begin you tour listening to upbeat island music.

Another screen loads and has a colorful parrot on it. It introduces the parrot, as ‘Tips’, and the bird will give you tips about playing the Margaritaville Online game.

The bird tells you to click on the beach, so you learn how to move. Then he tells you to talk to Captain Frank. Captain Frank says he has been trying to reason with hurricane season but since it has been rough, he needs your help to clean up. You pick up three pieces of debris and complete your first objective.  You get experience and coins which will help you in the game.

There are small side games inside Margaritaville Online such as the limbo, hammock toss (a match game) and of course a weapon game. 

You are given a slingshot to shoot the pirates who have come to party on the island. If you score 1,000 points, you advance to the second level. You also get to try your hand at fishing with the chief Parrothead himself, Jimmy Buffett.

There are plenty of game characters within the game, and one of the most recognizable ones is Jimmy Buffett.  His icon is very reminiscent of how he looked back in the 70s.  The other characters say funny things in reference to the songs, any Parrothead loves.

As you unlock achievements, you get to turn on the jukebox and hear pre-recorded live concerts. The first one you can unlock is ‘Boom A Rang Love’.  Imagine playing an enjoyable game that has a great sound track, not that tinny sounding crap you get with other games.

 On the second level, you become a Parrot-Head apprentice. On level 3 you become a ‘Coconut Telegraph’ operator, and on level 4 you are known as a ‘Changer of Attitudes’. On level 5 you are a ‘Havana Daydreamer’ while on level six you become an ‘A1A’er!  Upon reaching level seven, “one ‘Particular harbor becomes your current ranking. On level eight I became ‘Somebody from Somewhere’. All the levels are named after his songs, which is cool. Think of the memories those songs bring back.

Bingo Blitz Game, an Addict Shares All

Bingo Blitz is a fun free game that can be found on Facebook. Over 2 million people play it on a monthly basis. A game, that is that popular, is a good one. I am obsessed with the Facebook game.

You may wonder what is so addicting with this game to make it so popular. Well it could be the accents of the callers in the different rooms. If you play in the London room, you will hear a caller with a British accent. If you visit the Hong Kong room, you will hear that the caller has accent of someone who lives there. You can also play in rooms where you will hear the following accents, Plano (Texas), New York, Hollywood, Paris, Toronto, Sydney, Atlantic City, Venice, Tokyo, and Rio.

It could also be that you get to win collection pieces.  These collections are made up historical items as well as landmarks from that area. So you get a bit of culture and history lessons when you play the game.

Once you have all twelve pieces of each collection, you can win credits to play the game. The more Bingo Blitz credits you have the more you can play.

Bingo Blitz credits are easy to get. I read a great article about getting credits. Read that article here.

Of course, the more teammates you have the more credits and other gifts you receive each day. You need to gather as many teammates as you can. You can find them in the rooms as you play the games, on Facebook groups and even among the friends, you already have on Facebook.

I did locate a book on all kinds of tricks and tips to this game. It is full of tips and tricks to playing this game. I learned how to succeed in the game by reading it. Check out the Unofficial Guide to Bingo Blitz eBook on Amazon with this link

Unofficial Guide to Bingo Blitz eBook A Review

The Unofficial Guide to Bingo Blitz on Amazon has helped me to find teammates so that I have more credits to play the game. I only had 24 teammates before I bought the eBook, and the eBook suggested different ways to get more. That was handy. I knew you should have many friends helping you for the hard to get items in the collections.  Trust me it is to your advantage to complete the collections so you get more credits to play the game

I also read about why I should have so many teammates. I did not realize they helped in so many ways. You get five extra credits for having five friends, and with one hundred or more teammates, you get an additional 25 credits a day to play the game each day!

The Unofficial Guide to Bingo Blitz also had lots of tips and hints to credits and game play. The author even included some many screenshots from the game to illustrate her points. You will see what is needed in each collection, what the hard to get items are and how many extra credits you get for completing that collection.

This eBook is only a dollar and a half and I do not regret my purchase. The author put lots of time and effort into it.  Oh yeah she also mentioned that the e-book was created with no help from the Bingo Blitz staff but they knew she was making it.  Check out her hints and tips. I hope it helps you as much as it helped me.

I Love the game Bingo Blitz on Facebook, I find it helps clear my mind in a good way after I am done with writing the harder topics. You see I am a freelance writer. It is my job, and sometimes my passion. When I have to, I write about topics that bore me to tears I usually have a brain drain thing going on. That is how this awesome game by Buffalo Studios helps me retain my sanity!

Bingo Blitz Addict

I am loving the Bingo Blitz game on Facebook, and it’s a great way to de-stress between mind numbing web content. 

What’s so cool about this game? Accents, and surprizes! Its more than a bingo game, it is a bingo game with a twist, you collect the collection items for more credits. The more credits you have the more you can play.  
The game has several city rooms, two special rooms but holiday rooms do appear near the holidays.  The eleven city rooms are based on cities around the world. 

The Plano game room has a female caller with a Texan accent. In this type of room, you may not use any of the power ups.  However as you daub a number you might be lucky enough to  hit a chest which may have a surprise which  could be a power up, coins, credits or a collection prize. Once a player collects all 12 collection items in this room they receiver two extra credits for  the day.

In the New York room, the caller has a New York accent and you can win collection items that are icons, which depict the city.   These icons such as the George Washington Bridge, a t-shirt that says I heart NY, the Statue of Liberty, the Unisphere, and the Empire State Building. As with any of these eleven rooms two icons are gifts your team members have to ‘gift’ you, two are hard to get and the other eight can be won in the game or bought in the store.
