BoaBite 3D

Have you ever played that game where you guide the 2D line and try to eat small dots, and every time a line eats the dot it grows? This style of game has formed the basis for many addictive games since the early days of PC gaming. The folks at Wah-Software decided to give it a facelift, and have designed a 3D graphic version of this game.

The player controls a fruit-eating Boa that lives in a three-dimensional cube. As the Boa eats the fruit its tail extends with every bite. But as it grows, the Boa must take care not to touch anything, neither itself nor the wall of the cube, otherwise the game is over. So the fun begins! When the Boa's length reaches the level limit, the player progresses to the next level, where the Boa moves at a faster rate.

While the graphics may not be flashy - just a simple snake and fruit design - the addition of the transparent tail, which fades as the Boa approaches it and helps you to avoid accidentally bumping into it, is a nice effect.

The sound effects include a comical announcer who provides a voice-over as you continue on your quest for the fruit, plus a host of others. While you may not be up into the wee hours playing this, it is a great way to have a break from your work for five minutes.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
