Demand for broadband internet is at an all time high, and the days of dialup are far behind us (for the most part). This giant map below shows just how widespread it is these days (Aww, poor Alaska!). In general, the average speeds that a normal consumer is willing to dish out cash for, is somewhere between 1mbps and 50mbps. Certainly nothing to gawk at, when compared to the blistering 0.054mbps that could be achieved over dialup (assuming your phone line wasn’t garbage, and your ISP was able to handle speeds that incredibly fast…). Now there’s some movement to make current squabbling between a few measly mbps seem almost as silly as the squabbling between the 28.8k and 56k offerings of dialup…
Kevin Manning is at it again! If you haven’t heard of a company by the name of Fractured Minds, then obviously you aren’t cool. The company’s first project was a Facebook game, ZooLife, an interactive zoo game, where you are a zoo curator. The game takes you beyond the typical simple and rather static level of interaction found in most Facebook games.
…take the experience to a whole new level by allowing you to enter your exhibits and place animals, decorations, rocks, trees and much more! Watch your animals as they live, play and interact, and take care of them by feeding, cleaning, healing, and playing with them to keep them happy. Whether you like a jungle full of prowling tigers, or an aquarium bursting with sealife, ZooLife offers an enormous variety of animals and decorations to allow you to create the most vibrant zoo on the web.
Fractured Minds recently announced three new games, heading for the Andriod Market. They are all block puzzle games, which is a genre that is time tested and still popular today. Considering the artistic talent that is behind these games, I’m sure the graphics for the game will not disappoint! Keep an eye out for a release date so you can grab a copy for your shiny new Driod.
