It is however honestly observed that the interface used by the developers still makes it more of a teenager game than an adult game, the game would also be so much better if there were options for multiplayer mode which affords players to compete with their online friends.

Loopacks – Digitized Sound Creation for Artists and Music Lovers Alike

Calling all DJs who are looking to up their creative juices with technological tools, there is a new app in town that makes it easy. Technology is not new to music, not by any stretch of the imagination. The key if finding an app that works for you. Loopacks is just that, if you are looking to create quality loops and drum mixes.

What is really neat about Loopacks is that it’s not just for experts. Loopacks makes is easy for all musicians to create beats and remixes through experimentation and discovery, which is what making art is all about. Easy to use, Loopacks brings powerful toolset to your fingertips so you can focus on the music, rather than the movement of pieces.

The look and feel of the app is very similar to equipment you would find in the recording studio. If you are new to sound track creation and editing, this app may seem a bit overwhelming at first, but trust me, once you play around with it for a while, you will get the hang of it. There is nothing to break, but the fear you may be feeling.

I would highly recommend using the app on an iPad, although it is available for download on the iPhone as well. It was just easier to see all the controls, buttons, and graphics displays easily on a larger screen.

You can experiment first by choosing built in beats and loops and adding them to your own compositions. These tracks can be saved and shared using SoundCloud, which is a feature I really liked. Why create something if you can’t share it?

After getting comfortable with the editing aspect, you can start to record your own beats and loop and then start to mix them to create new pieces. Each Loopack is comprised of 32 sounds, including: synth, vocals, a drum machine loop, guitar loop, baselines, percussion loops, and more.

The app comes with four Loopacks, without purchase: Deep House, Power House, Electro Blues, and Atmosphere. If you want more, there are several in-app purchasing options that allow you to add to the basic collection.

I am not a real music aficionado, but I did find this app to be very entertaining. I did not know how technology could help you take existing recordings and turn them into something that sounded so different and interesting, and then serve as a backdrop to a unique composition you can call your own. This app is not just for musicians, it is for anyone who loves music.

If there is anything I would change about the app, it would be the selection of in-app purchases that are available and making them season oriented. How cool would it be to have something nightmarish for Halloween or festive for Christmas?

For a free download, this app is worth far more than that. Loopacks provides artists with high-tech tools needed to compose colossal pieces of music while serving as a neat environment to experiment and play with sound.

The player who is the warrior starts from the default ‘complexity’ mode which is ‘Normal’ and then improves their strength further depending on how they play to progress to other modes.

In order to start the fight, click the call button on screen that looks like crossed swords. Icons on the right panel labelled ‘i’ that appear when the Romans enter, give you information about the different types of warriors in the troop; for example, archer, legionnaire, infantrymen, etc. and also about the units and weapons. The warrior builds a defense area where he places various weapons like ballista, catapults on the path of the Roman troops at important spots on the map.

As the troops march into the Egyptian land, these weapons are used to destroy them and to prevent the troops from destroying the city. There are treasure chests that appear at times and if collected will earn you points. Killing the enemies and sometimes cutting down the trees will help you earn coins. Weapons need to be upgraded whenever possible in order for them to be efficient.

Opening the box on the left bottom corner reveals lightning, tribolos, and other instruments that can be used to kill the enemy. The warrior can participate in the battle by throwing tribolos in the path of enemy troops or by calling for help from the Egyptian Gods. You can speed up or slow down the battle by choosing the arrow button on the top right corner of the screen. You can improve gears after each stage.

The game has good graphics and sound with an interesting historical story behind it that makes it an interesting game to play. There are a large number of units in each level that can be loaded with different weapons depending on the strength of the enemies in the field at that time. Each weapon has a different strength and speed. The battle fought is interesting with many strategic actions that can be used to complete each level. The power and coins that you earn at each level can be used to improve the weapons that you use. The warrior makes decisions and responds quickly with the help of the Egyptian Gods to protect Egypt from the Romans.

Defense of Egypt has several levels, that is more than 60 and each level has varying difficulty and accomplishment. There are also 16 types of enemies each with different power and armor.  When it comes to weapons, there are 6 types of weapons that can be upgraded and 5 types of gears for combat vehicles that can also be improved. The player can get involved in the fight by using grenades, tribolos, fire, lightning, and frost that can be found in the box at the bottom left of the screen. Overall this game will be liked by both children and adults. There is support for a few other languages as well other than English.  The game score can be shared on Facebook.

During the gameplay, although a lot of commands and instructions are given by Cleopatra, it would have been better to have a few more onscreen instructions for novice players to understand and catch-up on the game easily and quickly. There could be some free power-ups to improve vitality instead of the in-app purchases.
