Recent modernize has improved touch responsiveness a lot! Thanks! I have a suggestion though, there doesn't appear to be any sort of option to quit android game or go back to the main menu, I have to go back to my launcher screen and swipe the application away to create it completely close.
This tries to be a faithful X-Com clone, but falls short in several areas: Controls are fiddly, it's very difficult to select exactly who/where you want. There's no path finding to future turns, only where you can move in this turn. You can see aliens, you obtain the  box, those aliens can reaction fire you, but go to shoot them and "no LOS to that location", what? There's no method to force fire on a zone you can't see, like to break through a wall. Overall disappointing. Play Xenowar or OpenXcom instead.
Good, but easier and simpler than the original XCOM. However, it has much better controls than OpenXCOM for android. :) Only played for an hour or so, there doesn't seem to be any air to air combat, nor are there any UFOs to enter, and thus far, I can't see any tactical options like kneeling, or saving time troops for reaction shots, etc. All in all, amazing android game though!
It's fun, I've played the original X-Com games. But I search the difficulty to be too high, even on the lowest setting. I've place satellite listening posts around the globe in the early stages of the game, as quick as I could, and I was getting a Weak monthly report (3 up, with long range scanners in a couple of months). The aliens' accuracy is too good, comparing you're just beginning, and you're a level below them in gun tech (well, I use Auto-Shot most of the time to obtain the best out of three). I would often have around 3 guys average dying on missions. I think the difficulty is just too much.
I have always enjoyed HONY on facebook, and I have the second book written. I bought this one as an intro to these stories for a mate who had not heard of it before. She really enjoyed it, which is a huge thumbs up since she usually only reads serious historical non-fiction. Which I suppose this kind of is. Haha. Anyway, she appreciated the bonus and now I will have to borrow it from her since I don't have this one.
This is a unbelievable book that captures the soul of Fresh York Town in photographs. Brandon Stanton manages to portray in photographs what a lot of writers have tried to do in prose. Through his photographs, you really obtain a sense of the diversity of personalities living in this incredibly interesting city. The pictures range from the normal to the wildly eccentric and cover a very wide range of emotions. The pictures truly do tell a story of the humans of Fresh York. In addition to the photographs, there are lots of captions & very short stories about a lot of of the people highlighted in the book. The only thing that I would recommend is to the print version, as the Kindle ver has some annoying problems. I purchased it for use on my iPad, but found that a lot of of the captions failed to display properly, and a lot of of the pages failed to turn when I tapped the screen. This is not a reflection of the book, but rather the format. The book itself deserves a high 5 stars.
Fresh York Town is a lot of unique things to various people. For some it's museums, for others the Fresh York Public Library. For some it's performances at Lincoln Center, Radio Town Melody Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Apollo Theater or any number of Broadway plays and musicals. For others it is the world-famous landmarks: Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building or thousands of other places, too a lot of to mention here.But Fresh York Town is really about one other thing: grapher Brandon Stanton has captured this in Humans of Fresh York, his debut book... and it has skyrocketed on the different book charts since its publication in October 2013, and for amazing reason. Based on his HONY blog, which now has over two million followers and fans, this book is a visual delight of about 400 images of the people that he has encountered in his travels across the five boroughs that create up Fresh York City. His people photos create a gorgeous, sometimes funny, truly genuine, and often moving compilation of images that capture the spirit of the town through its diverse people in often inspiring andon Stanton did not begin his career with the goal of becoming a photographer, as he explains in the introduction of this book. He noted that while working as a bond trader in Chicago, he spent his weekends with a camera that he had acquired in 2010, and that photography "felt like a treasure hunt." After losing his job as a trader, he traveled to different American cities, but his first impressions of NYC were unforgettable, as he notes in the intro:"I remember the moment my bus emerged from the Lincoln Tunnel and I saw the town for the first time. The sidewalks were covered with people. The buildings were impressive, but what struck me most were the people. There were dozens of them. And they all seemed to be in a hurry. That night, I made a image album for my Fresh York photos. I called it `People of Fresh York.'"From that easy beginning, the rest became photographic history; from his early attempts at a Web page, he discovered social media in the form of Fb and Tumbler. Fans of his photos reacted, and soon became regular followers. At first it was hundreds, then thousands, and zooming forwards to today, his Fb page has over two million loyal followers, and hundreds commenting on his photos daily, with a lot of of those sharing his people images to their own pages. Each of these is a capsule of a moment in time.On these pages we see daily people as encountered by a lot of of us on the Fresh York streets; subway images, people in Central Park, in Brooklyn's Prospect Park, by the Strand Book Shop in Downtown Manhattan, at the Brooklyn Museum and at Manhattan's iconic Metropolitan Museum of Art. We see a young well-dressed girl in the lobby of the Plaza Hotel, a well-dressed older woman at the Waldorf-Astoria, people carrying boxes of pizza as bonuses for the firefighters (the owner refused payment), people at Union Square on 14th Street, and a Marine recruiter in uniform on the road in Downtown Manhattan. Some are camera shy, while others are striking a pose.And there are some that stand out, strikingly so. We see the full-page view of the model in her black and white striped evening gown at Lincoln Center, the chess players at Washington Square Park, people with their pets, the Sikh gentleman whose gentle smile is hidden behind his iconic mustache and beard, and the two page photo of two ballet students captured in a lunchtime pose, standing in front of a steam grate in Tribeca. It is this same photo that has served as the iconic avatar on HONY's Fb ere are people at play, at work, sleeping on benches in parks, dancing, eating, kissing, hugging, and frolicking in the water gushing from fire hydrants. We search people of all ethnic backgrounds, and of all ages, from teenagers to folks in their nineties, to children. There are a lot of superb photos of kids here, and they must captivate Stanton, as it is said that he will be publishing a children's book, "Little Humans" in ere are captions, though they are limited and to the point. Maybe because Stanton is upbeat and not condescending, so his captions never stereotype, even when he photographs people that close-minded individuals might think of as "sketchy" or strange. His book radiates his own natural curiosity, along with diversity, appreciation and respect for the people that he photographs. For open-minded people watchers, this book is a 's difficult to classify this as a traditional coffee table image book, if just by size alone. My copy is 304-page hardcover first edition printed in the U.S. and published by St. Martin's Press on October 15th, 2013. It measures 9.2 x 7.3 x 1 inches, which is hardly a coffee table book like another favorite, The Fresh York Times Magazine Photographs by Kathleen Ryan. That Aperture edition measures 12.2 x 10.5 x 1.8 inches, a amazing bit larger.On a private basis, I rank Brandon Stanton's book right up there with Robert Frank's The Americans, a strong book in post-WWII American photography. First published in 1959, his black and white images were remarkable for their distanced view of both high and low strata of American society of the time. In contrast to Stanton's book, there is an element of sadness, even despair, in some of the images, but there is joy as many, Fresh Yorkers are standoffish, cold and impersonal. For those of us who have spent time on the roads here, this is generally not so, and as a relative newcomer to the city, Brandon Stanton has proven that to be a myth. I am reminded of this quote that was written down when it was passed on by a friend:"My favorite thing about Fresh York is the people, because I think they're misunderstood. I don't think people realize how kind Fresh York people are."~ Bill Murray, Moviefone interview, April 27th, 2010What makes Brandon Stanton's Humans of Fresh York so various is that it is not about high-profile celebrities. It features people who aren't normally documented, who one might search anywhere on the Fresh York roads if one just looks. It's a book that I have already gifted to some unique friends, ones who also have fun true people in daily settings. It's not just a private favorite, but one that may well go down in books of NYC road photography as a landmark chronicle of this era. Time will tell.JW ▪ 1/2/2014
How often can you search a book with 400-plus gorgeous images that's reasonably priced, not awkwardly sized or noticeably massive to pick up?That's what I got when I bought Humans of Fresh York, which I think is the most exciting and one of the best photography books I've ever seen. I'm not a connoisseur, but I do love photography books and have a cherished, though modest collection that I started acquiring in the 1970s with my first one, The Family of grapher Brandon Stanton captures much that is right about Fresh York: the posturing, the attractive women, children being kids, fragile senior citizens, hipsters, hairstyles, fashions, kooky antics, faces and especially the smiles. The collection looks like it took a year or more of pounding sidewalks to search worthy material but remarkably, Humans of Fresh York was a 2010 summer project.His book isn't laden with excess explanation and verbiage. When Stanton labels a photo, he gets it just right with a few words, or he let's the topic explain him or herself, such as the beautiful girl with an attitude and fabulous hair, who says: "I'm going to allow you take my image because you seem like a genuine person. But just so you know -- I don't normally allow people steal my swag."Most of the color images evoke a sense of joy, but when Stanton flirts with the seamy side of Fresh York life, you still feel the humanity. I will never again gaze upon a manic grin, or an elderly man wearing a fairy outfit or hear some crazy talk, without cutting that person a lot of slack. Sugar Hill: Where The Sun Rose Over Harlem
Brandon Stanton and the HONY community are lovely. (Follow on social media and check them out!) The stories are interesting and thought provoking. It opens your eyes to the struggles, joys, pain, love etc that we all experience, no matter what age or walk of life. The pictures are also very well done.
The best application to borrow from yourself ..has literally saved me at least 10 times ... to place in perspective on how much i love the application ive never written a review for any application ever but i had to for all the people that are afraid of being played or scammed Best Money Advance Application ever and THE BEST PART IT'S %100 FREE...💯👍
Love it, amazing sauce! Back from the days of my old 486 with 3.25 floppy! Only one thing, I remember fighting aliens with only laser pistols and plasma pistols and small or no armor for the first couple of months in the original, this seems to have laser cannons and plasma cannons at the third mission ive been on. Well outgunned I believe. But well worth the money! Amazing job devs!
For those of us who miss the original XCOM. Could use more dozens of creepy sound themes. There's no alien ufo's to discover or shoot down. But its still authentic and captivating. Worth the money. No glitches or problems at all. Also, I play it with a mouse and it plays great.
If the original X-COM android games remain the ones you still haul out and play every year, then this is the android game for you. Easily the best adaptation for Android. Bravo to the development team. Well worth every penny. It's a tough android game that will give you hours and hours of amazing play. Highly recommended.
A send up of the original X Com game. If you enjoyed the old game, this one is a amazing copy. Since it's a smartphone game, a amazing is left out (which is understandable) but the major disappointment is the story. The interrogations left out for space, could have been merged with the autopsies. The final text-cut is just a stub.
There is an problem : - no graphics adjustment options @ Settings ; thus, the geoscape occasionally doesn't present as it should - instead, it is all pitch black ,for except showing base-on-map square symbol the same it is for the Menu on the left hand - only that it's even worse - the menu doesn't present at all - it's all black and managed to press it & use it somewhat intuitively - wished it all got displayed properly . Perhaps, having some additional Graphics options to setup as
The interface of this android game feels somewhat clunky and really wants to be played with a mouse. With that said, if you can endure a bit of UI pain and amateur graphics, the android game is a decent x-com ersatz. If you liked the original PC game, you'll have fun with this.
Classic xcom on the go. Little thing, Opponent ai needs a small work, they always fire first before you can see then giving then unfair advantage, but then when in view don't seem to attack soilders very effectively. But I love it. Well done to the developers. :)
The android game might be amazing but it is difficult to war past the UI. I played UFO and XCOM to death years ago. AvH has little font text with buttons that are little and seem to only register taps on the fourth try. Very frustrating and irritating interface. Will test and play it again if it is updated, method too much of a chore for now. 10" Samsung tab S. ( Android device ver 4.4.2)
Aliens reaction fire so often and so accurately you can march 8 soldiers towards one alien and watch all die before catching a glimpse of its location. During alien movement they can even wipe out 5 people that just got off ship without showing you where they fired from even if there are living troops that could have see it. Line of website firing had to be turned off as one alien in tall grass was un targetable otherwise. 2 hours wasted and i really wanted it to be enjoyable. I miss xcom.
I’m so glad that Brandon Stanton left his job as a bonds trader and picked up a camera. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to look at the awesome pictures in his book, The Humans of Fresh York. I love this book! The first time around I looked at the pictures, the second time around I read most of the words that accompanied the photos, and the third time around I did both. Now in addition to looking at their photographs, I’m thinking about the people that Brandon Stanton captured through his camera ere are too a lot of “models” to mention, so I’m spotlighting three that I especially like. (1) There’s the elderly lady with silver hair and a attractive smile whose caption says, “Every time I force myself to go outside, something unbelievable happens.” Amazing advice! (2) And I love the red shirted man named Bala. He's lying on his side in his picture, his long gray beard and hair framing his face. The man’s name is Lawrence, and his deceased wife’s name was Barbara. He called her Ba, and she called him La. After her death, he changed his name to Bala. (3) And then there’s Gac Filipaj, a refugee from Yugoslavia who’s decked out in his graduation regalia for his photograph. After 12 years of working as a janitor at Columbia University until 11:00 p.m. each night, he earned a classics degree.If you love pictures and the stories they tell, you’ll relish this book. After looking at it, you’ll know for certain that there are no uninteresting people and that Stanton is a gifted photographer who’s found his niche.
Amazing Quality. Amazing bought it in a rush on the airplane to hold baby "focused"it didn't work well. not much sining. there was a lot of talking in the beginningmore like a everyday children at school kinda feelingso baby didn't attention much. hahaOh well. she might like them later. who knows
