Human Resource Machine

I’m really looking forward to playing this game, but I haven’t installed it yet. Human Resource Machine from Tomorrow Corporation is currently featured on the Apple New Games We Love section. It’s also Touch Arcade’s game of the week.

It’s the same company that made World of Goo and Little Inferno.

The game has been out for the PC for a while, and available on Steam. It recently came out on iOS.

In this game, you program tiny office workers to solve puzzles. The official game description calls it, “a puzzle game for nerds.” Sounds just like my type of game!

The Troop Cards in Clash Royale

A few weeks ago I wrote about Clash Royale from Supercell. It’s a kind of new (but not totally new) card battle game from the same people that made Clash of Clans and Boom Beach. They also made Hay Day, but I never played that game.

There are a lot of different troop cards that you can collect in the game and the troops form the basis of you attack. There are also spell cards, but I’ll talk about those in another post.

Here is a list of all the troop cards you can earn in the game (listed in alphabetical order).

  • Archers
  • Baby Dragon
  • Balloon
  • Barbarians
  • Bomber
  • Dark Prince
  • Fire Spirits
  • Giant
  • Giant Skeleton
  • Goblins
  • Golem
  • Guards
  • Hog Rider
  • Ice Wizard
  • Knight
  • Lava Hound
  • Miner
  • Mini P.E.K.K.A.
  • Minion Horde
  • Minions
  • Musketeer
  • P.E.K.K.A.
  • Prince
  • Princess
  • Royal Giant
  • Skeleton Army
  • Skeletons
  • Sparky
  • Spear Goblins
  • Three Muketeers
  • Valkyrie
  • Witch
  • Wizard

So far, my favorite two troops are the Hog Rider and the Mini P.E.K.K.A. Why? Because when played together, they can form a devastating one-two punch. If you are lucky enough to get both of them in the starting deck, you can surprise most opponents and destroy one of their towers immediately. Not everyone falls for it, but it’s a great attack.

I’d have to say that the Giant is my other favorite troop, especially in the early arenas. He’s slow but makes a great meat shield/tank, and if he arrives at an enemy tower with some health left, he’s really good at taking the tower down.
