IPAD Time Waster: Shedder Simulator Games

Shedder Simulator Games

Genre: Tearing shit up

Summary: Putting items in the shedder and watch it destroy things and make weird noises.

Thoughts:

I have not played this because I feel like in 2 minutes; I will be bored to death. As I said in the summary, you just put various objects into a shedding machine.  Judging by the picture, the developer offers a lot of things that you can just toss into the shredder even a bowling ball! (WOW) I seriously doubt they offer anything cool like a cucumber or human body parts.  It looks like the graphics are sub-par at best but I’m sure the sound effects would be over the top amazing.  I also read some of the best reviews for a game on here.  Players were getting super detailed about how the items should drop down the shedder which I found fascinating that somebody would take the time out of their busy day to write that review.

Recommend:

Probably not but read the reviews.

IPAD Time Waster: Avakin Life

Avakin Life

Genre: Social

Summary: You have an avatar in which you use to socialize with other people.

Thoughts:

I thought this was a pretty decent game especially if you are into socializing with other human beings.  I did not find the avatars all that great looking and noticed if you wanted to change your look, it would cost some money. At that point, I was just like “Fuck it,” I’ll be ugly. You do start out with an apartment which was unfurnished. I did somehow get a free unicorn and a dog but I am unsure how I did that.  There seemed to be a ton of places to venture off too (Bars, parks, etc) and several events that were also going on.   My first journey was at a bar because I wanted to know if my avatar could get drunk.   I could not figure out how to order anything and then realized that probably cost cash too.  So then, I went to a dog park.  I left my dog at home though.  Time was well spent at the park because I met my first friend, Martin.  (He was wearing a ball gag but seemed very nice) He encouraged me to find a job after I explained to him that I needed a lot of cash to get drunk.  I asked him what kind of jobs were available to a person of my quality.  I told him my interests were stripping and coupon clipping.  He said he would help me find my dream job.  That was exciting news, I had a new friend and would soon be employed and making lots of cash.  After our serious employment chat, I asked Martin to be my mail order bride.  I had to log after that so hopefully, he says yes soon.

Recommend:

I would recommend this game because it is casual and relaxing.  There was no goal to the game other than finding friends. My only real issue was camera movement and walking.  This is a personal issue because I’m really bad at reading directions.

Covet Fashion: Tips for beginners

Tips for beginners:

 

Daily:  Every day, Covet rewards you with 100 diamonds and 20 tickets.

 

Enter daily challenge.:

This is the best challenge to enter everyday because there is no restrictions and you earn $500 covet cash just for entering.

I like this one because I can put on any unworn outfit and enter.  I don’t ever expect a high score with this one since I’m using whatever outfit I have but eventually that daily 500 cash adds up!

Flashback Challenges:

If you are a beginner and low on funds, do not enter the flash back challenges.  These challenges can be really expensive!

The flashback challenges require several pieces from previous seasons and if you do not have those items, you will have to buy them.

Jet Set Challenges:

You can do the jet set challenges as many times as you want.

You do not earn prizes with these challenges but you do earn stars.  Stars will help you unlock other jet set levels and you can earn 500 diamonds.

Jet Set Challenges usually only last 8 hours and voting begins.  So you find out results pretty quick. These challenges are also easy to win.

Series Challenges:

If you have the funds to spend, do the series challenges.  These are like 5 to 8 challenges.

If you do all of them, the prizes are really good and this is only for entering them all!

The only thing that really sucks as a beginner, you usually have to buy 2 to 4 pieces per challenge.

Borrow:

You can borrow items from Facebook friends and if you are in a fashion house – you can borrow them too.

You can only borrow 1 item per challenge.

Style:

Pairing the right hair and makeup can bring up the score of your look when it comes to voters.

Eventually, in higher levels, details are going to be very important. (Jewelry, handbags, etc.)

I noticed short hair and albino skin do not do well in voting.  Voters tend to like long hair and tanned/darker skin tones. (Just my opinion though)

You can view the top looks on the front page and that will give you a good idea on how people vote.  I noticed a lot of voters have shit taste too.  I don’t know why.

Diamonds:

If you are going to buy diamonds, wait until Covet Fashion has a sale.  They have a lot of sales!

Challenge Themes:

All the challenges have some sort of theme going on.  Pay attention to the picture and the description of the theme.

Many voters will not vote for your look if it resembles nothing to the theme.

Funds:

Save your funds and only buy what you need for a challenge.  Items cost an arm and a leg and you will run out of money very quickly.

When you do have to buy something, keep in mind that you might need that outfit in another challenge.  Pick items that can be paired with other things.

Likes:

Likes do nothing to help you.  It just shows that somebody thought your outfit was cool.  It does not help with voting.

Unworn & Season:

Max your unworn & season bonus if you can.  This can put a 3.5 score outfit over 4.0 which will land you a prize.

Edit:

You can edit an outfit up until it’s closed out for voting.   This is handy if you don’t have the covet cash to buy something.  Enter the challenge anyway, get the entry reward and then edit the outfit and buy the item you need with it.

Tucking in Shirts:

There is a tuck button that will tuck in a shirt.  This will give your outfit an entirely different look and is helpful if a lot of people are going to be wearing the same look and you want to set yourself apart.

Models:

You can switch from classic to modern models as many times as you want.  If you entered a challenge with one type of model, you have to stay with the model until the challenge is over.

Pro Tip:

Do not try to enter every challenge.  This game can be addicting and you can end up paying a lot of real money to play it.  Start with the Jet Set & Daily Challenges. Save your diamonds and $500 covet cash for a few days and then enter another challenge.  Pacing yourself is key.
