Rusty Lake: Roots' worth the price of admission

The Rusty Lake series of point-and-click puzzle games have long been known for their creepy aesthetic; the tradition continues with the recently-released 'Rusty Lake: Roots' ($2.99, available on Android, Apple, Steam, and iOS), a multi-tiered game that doles out the grim backstory of some of the characters that have previously been revealed to players of the unnerving game.

King's Quest: Once Upon a Climb

Some people's nerd cred comes from comic books and movies, but mine has its roots in video games. When I was growing up I played King's Quest II: Romancing the Throne on the family Atari-ST. The graphics were what you'd consider a little flat and you had to type in your commands. So things have come a long way, but that doesn't mean we don't miss some of the older-style games.

Drawn to Cons

BANGOR Comic and pop-culture has exploded over the past few years. It used to be, if you were from Maine, you'd have to travel to southern New England at the very least to attend a convention. But now there are several to choose from right in our own backyard.

The long kiss goodnight

I can't tell if I talk about them too much. My kids, I mean. Really, I can't - your eyes could be glazed like a donut and I would probably yammer on about them. You might have to fall into a coma, or maybe shake me sternly to get me to realize it's time to stop. Which makes this a rather awkward column, because it's my last one at least, my last one here.

Infinite City'

There are some beautiful things on the internet (as evidenced by the subreddit /r/internetisbeautiful which happens to be where I stumbled across this little gem). Some things have an educational purpose, some are interesting marketing projects and some are projects for web designers. 'Infinite City' seems to be a Javascript project that randomly generates a city for you to explore. It's beautiful, full of dark, towering buildings illuminated from within.

Taking the slow path to fitness

Super Slow Zone offers an alternative to getting fit

BANGOR When conjuring up visions of fitness and workouts, often you think of people moving fast. Running, jumping, blasting through workouts quickly and doing hundreds of repetitions as fast as possible are all fairly typical. But it's not the only way to get fit.

Super Slow Zone offers an alternative way to get a workout that doesn't involve going as fast as possible, but at the same time doesn't mean taking up a lot of precious time. Lyn Bragdon is the owner and a certified instructor at Super Slow Zone and notes that each session is by appointment only, which ensures you get one-on-one time with a certified instructor. You only have to attend one or two times a week, and even then it's only for 20 to 25 minutes per session. There are no TVs, no cell phones, no mirrors and no treadmills. Workouts can be done in any attire, including business clothes (just skip the high heels). They guarantee that you will get stronger and have tracking software to monitor progress.

Conflict resolution (03-23-2016)

I used to know what my opinions about things were. And some days I still have a decent handle on it. But on others, I'm a mess of conflicting emotions about stuff. Today is a snow day. I feel really weird about it. On the one hand, it's annoying, because instead of a half day in which I can do work, I have to try to cram it into a smaller window of time. On the other hand, I'm weirdly happy that they have some nice fresh snow to play with. This is beyond bizarre; I stopped enjoying snow around the same time I started having to drive in it.

Then my son came down with a sudden and gross stomach bug. I was somewhat relived he had it on a snow day, because otherwise it would have happened while he was in school and I would have had to bring him home. And who knows how much work I would have gotten done at that point. See, when I have less time, sometimes I can actually get more done.

Colonization'

Matching games are still quite the rage - who doesn't love 'Bejeweled' or 'Candy Crush' saga? - but you wouldn't think that you could make a real strategy game out of them. Well, you can, apparently. 'Colonization' takes the basic premise of a match three and makes you really work for some payoff.
