Aaron ' s Backstage Pass: Kingdom Hearts
10 years ago a game came out on the PS2 by Square Enix called “Kingdom Hearts.” It resembled a very fascinating game and like a great deal of fun. I bought it and was a fan right away. It was new and included a full cast of popular classic Disney Characters.

It looks like FRIDA and friends are about ready to get comfy over at Foxconn. Following the company’s August announcement that it would infiltrate its ranks with one million robots in the next three years, Focus Taiwan is reporting that the manufacturer’s parent company, Hon Hai, is moving forward on its plans to build an “intelligent robotics kingdom” in the Central Taiwan Science Park. Chairman Terry Gou reportedly signed a letter of intent with Taichung mayor Jason Hu last Saturday, confirming its plans to erect a plant dedicated to the production of robots and automation equipment. That robo-mecca is expected to draw some serious scratch, with an estimated production-value boost of NT$ 120 billion (about $ 4 billion) and the creation of 2,000 jobs. How many of those positions will be filled by headless automatons remains to be seen.
Well what do we have here? It looks like this might be the rumored HTC Kingdom that recently visited the FCC — basically a CDMA and WiMAX-capable Sensation. Considering that the leaked video is titled “HTC EVO 4G+ preview”, and that the handset pictured is cosmetically identical to the EVO 3D except for the camera pod, we’re inclined to believe that this might just be destined for Sprint — although that WiBRO setting means this particular unit is destined for the Korean market. The twin 5 megapixel cameras have been replaced with a single 8 megapixel shooter housed in a similar sized pod, and the 2D / 3D mode slider next to the shutter key now switches between photos and video. Let’s just hope we’re not dealing with a discarded prototype or an Asia-only model, and that the phone’s guts are just as juicy and delicious as its 3D sibling — complete with qHD display and dual-core 1.2GHz Snapdragon processor.

The Logitech Alert security camera system is a dead simple remote monitoring service and the company just outed an iPad companion app. In many ways the iPad version is just a retooled version of the current web app with live video viewing as the main feature. Users can view previously recorded alerts, change the settings on the cameras, and view live 720p video complete with sound. The app itself is free although to use any feature besides the live mode, a $ 79.99 subscription to the Logitech Alert Web and Mobile Commender service is required. Logitech’s cameras are on the pricey side, but feature great video quality, and as this app shows, good support from Logitech.

Hey, there little guy! That’s the Toshiba AC100 — an Android 2.1 smartbook with Toshiba’s custom user interface — on show in the UK, where you can now grab one up. The 10.1-inch, 1.9-pounder has yet to show its face anywhere near the US, but as for specs it’s got a 1GHz Tegra 250 SoC, a 32GB SSD, 512MB of DDR2 memory, 802.11n WiFi, optional 3G, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, a 1.3 megapixel webcam, and an HDMI port. While it’s listed on Amazon you still can’t actually order one of these bad boys stateside, but if you’re in the UK, you can grab one up for £292.52 (almost $450) for the non-3G model. Video of the little guy in action back in June is below.

What happens when ogres take over the kingdom and kidnap the Princess? Well, if you’re Chuck Gnome, you go out and take back your kingdom by catapulting copies of yourself at the enemy and destroying them.
Or maybe Chuck is tossing lawn gnome statues? Or his friends? Honestly, I don’t even really know. And I don’t think it’s that important. In Movable Sprites’ new iPhone game Chuck Gnome, the point is to destroy ogres–and targets and mushrooms and lots of other stuff â€” as quickly as you can.
Here’s how it works. Chuck stands at the ready, right in front of his slingshot. When a target appears, you pull him back and release. Do it gently, and Chuck only goes a short distance. Pull him back a lot and he’ll fly further. You’ll get a special targeting aid, called Gnome Vision, that predicts where your shot will land, but the game is far too fast-paced to rely on it for much. Each target has a point value and you get multipliers by hitting as many of them in a row without missing.
Chuck Gnome is simple, with a whimsical, cartoony look and a lovely soundtrack to match. The action is quick and there’s not a lot of thought to the game. You have 100 seconds to blast as many targets as you can. Certain targets add time to your clock and you try to rack up as high a score as possible in the time available.
The first level, First Flight, serves as a playable tutorial. You learn how to tilt the phone and employ the accelerometer to sneak a few last-ditch throws at targets about to disappear off the screen. What isn’t immediately apparent, however, is how to unlock the levels. The Help section, under Extras, claims that “Key targets unlock new episodes” and that “a key appears after Chuck destroys a specific set of targets.” What it means is that you have to score a certain amount of points, at which point a target shaped like a golden key appears. Hit the key and you unlock the next level.
I consider myself a fairly apt iPhone gamer. I made it over 10,000 meters in Canabalt and my high score in Doodle Jump is in the 50,000s. But evidently I am terrible at Chuck Gnome. After racking up a score of 615,000 on the first level, where targets range from 85 to 150 points and there are only two targets that grant bonuses to time, I have yet to discover the golden key which will supposedly unlock the next level. This is exceptionally frustrating.
My four year-old, who is admittedly a bit young for the game, had a lot of fun with it nonetheless. He loved the sounds of Chuck being launched at the targets and squealed with delight when he finally smashed a mushroom. He began to adjust his swipes at the iPhone screen for better accuracy, but even so, his high score on the first level never got above 2,000. After about half an hour, he was getting a bit tired of the two starter levels. He asked me, “Can I do another level, Michael?” (He refuses to call me “daddy”).
I’m working on it, kid. While I’m waiting at the doctor’s office, at traffic lights, and any other chance I get.
Wired: Simple, fun, addictive carnival style game. Amazing music and art style. Perfect for short burst gameplay.
Tired: Repetitive gameplay. Confusion and high difficulty in unlocking new levels.
