Apple Aurora Feint
Become a bejeweled level 4 wizard!
- Simple puzzle-style gameplay, RPG elements appeal to non-casual gamers
Aurora Feint is a fun and addictive puzzle game that combines simple gameplay with RPG elements to attract both casual and hardcore gamers. While there are still some bugs to be ironed it, they don’t detract from the gameplay experience at all.
The jury is still out on whether the iPhone is an effective mobile gaming platform, but there are certainly a few compelling arguments in its favour. Aurora Feint is one of these — a fun and addictive puzzle game. It also borrows elements from role-playing games.
Aurora Feint borrows heavily from games like Bejeweled. The core concept of the game is fairly simple: line up three or more of the same type of block in a row and they will disappear. Keep doing this until the power bar is filled and you will reach the next level.
Apart from the touch screen, which is used to move the blocks around, the game also cleverly utilises the iPhone’s built-in accelerometer. Users can only move blocks sideways, so they must turn the handset on its side or upside-down. This turns the blocks to fit the altered perspective and gives players more movement options.
As players level up, they can acquire new skills and play at a harder skill level. This adds yet another dimension to the game.
Aurora Feint is fun and addictive, but it has several minor flaws. It's a memory hog, quickly consuming the iPhone’s RAM and rendering the game prone to crashes and performance issues. We encountered a low memory warning almost every time we entered the game. Although the game only crashed once, it would often slow enough to be rendered unplayable.
Like Tap Tap Revenge, Aurora Feint is simple, addictive and fun. Although it is memory-intensive, it’s still a fantastic game for the iPhone.

If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
