Good morning Pixlpeeps! It is a cool and cloudy Southern California morning and there is no shaking. So last weekend we had a couple of earthquakes, small earthquakes but shakers none the less. And we had a really quick (like 2 second shake quick) afershock on Sunday. It rumbled before it hit so as I was looking through some cards, I yelled “Earthquake” and while the world was shaking I grabbed another pile of cards to look through until the shaking stopped. Fun, right? Ok let’s recap the games I played:


Box Align - Switch: So this is one of the super cheap games I bought last week and during WrestleMania (very good show btw) I played a couple of puzzles during some of the matches. So Box Align takes the concept of a match 3 puzzle, turns it into 3D but instead of having a bunch of objects you get 99 different puzzles to complete.


The goal is to clear the board in a handful of moves.


With the joystick you can move around and select the box you want to move,B selects the box, L and R can lower and raise your cursor to select boxes if they are stacked, ZL and ZR rotate the screen


Once you select the area you want to drop your box just hit B and if you match 3 the boxes disappear


Keep this up until the board is clear


Now if you do it wrong the board clears but then the puzzle starts over. The game is casual and extremely forgiving. No ratings, no trophies, you get the puzzle wrong you start over, you get the puzzle correct and you get a little sound, and you move onto the next puzzle


It’s simple yet the puzzles are challenging and I try to get at least one or two puzzles in each time I fire up the game. Box Align is a fun thinking puzzle game that can be frustrating but it can also be rewarding. No frills just fun


Pssst...if you followed along in the pictures I solved puzzle 11 for you good folks. 

NBA 2K19 -Switch: Video Game Chris and the Bulls secured a spot in the Playoffs with a big win in Orlando the first game back from the All-Star Break. Since the season is winding down I’m starting to think about which players I could let go and what position I need to draft. I would like another outside shooter because right now my team lives and dies by driving into the paint.

Adrenaline Rush: Miami Drive - Switch: still grinding away at trying to collect enough coins to buy the 2X coin multiplier.

Earth Atlantis - iOS: I tried this game last night and it seems interesting. So the Earth is now 90% covered in water and machines have taken on an aquatic look, so you’re a robot Steam punk Submarine. Think Gradius if the world was underwater, Steam punk themed, the levels had a yellow gold duo-tone, set in the Ecco the Dolphin world but with bad guys, and you can move around in both directions. So you pick a type of sub, tap the right screen to switch directions, and move your finger around the left side of the screen. You collect powerups, and you move around and explore while dodging bad guys and mines.

I only played a couple of minutes but this is what it feels like for me.


Alright Pixlpeeps I am off. I need to eat some breakfast, fix my tub, and then jump into cataloging my football cards. Have a good one!…WASH YOUR HANDS!


That’s all for now, more later!

I tried Box Align and got stuck at that level you showed.  Then I tried the other cheap game I got: Conduct Together.  For a cheapy game, I liked this one quite a bit.  It's a puzzle action game where you must get trains to pick up and drop off passengers without bumping into anything.  You do this by switching tracks and putting on the brakes of the trains when needed.  It was a lot better than I thought it would be.

Conduct Together looks pretty cool. I wonder if it's by the same people as did Farm Together. I want to play that too.

Conduct together sounds like a pretty good game especially for the price. I'll give it a try later on this week. Hopefully my pictures helped you. I'm currently stuck on the one with pink squares that are locked. Eventually it'll click...or by accident I'll figure it out.

I saw Earth Atlantis on Xbox and was almost taken in by the art style. Maybe on a sale I'll pick it up.

I bet you it probably plays better with a controller.

Earth Atlantis sounds cool.

From what I've seen it has a cool vibe. I'll get a better feeling for it once I actually get into it.
