Dreamgate Studios Light in the Dark app ~Review and giveaway ~ 2 Winners!!

Light Bending, Color Blending Puzzle Game,  Light in the Dark, Brings Adorable Totems to iOS, Android, Windows Phones

 Gamers and everyone that loves a brain-teaser now can download Dreamgate Studios’ cartoon art style, light bending, color blending puzzle game Light in the Dark for their iOS, Android and Windows Phone devices. Initial levels are simple enough for children to enjoy but later stages are challenging for adults. 

The game begins with the discovery that the cute babies of Totems, a colorful undiscovered species, have lost their way in an ancient labyrinth tomb.  Gamers must help the children reunite with the parents. Players must solve perplexing puzzles and avoid dangerous but equally adorable enemies including mummies and sandmen.  Villains force players to make moves quickly as these treacherous opponents can end a level after a certain amount of time has passed or tackle parent Totems.

Gamers can swipe the screen of their mobile devices to move mirrors, which bend light. Players can also reposition parent Totems, which illuminates surrounding areas in one of three colors.  Baby Totems are only reunited with their parents when basking in the glow of their own preferred hue.  To create colors which are different from those emitted by adult Totems, players blend the light of the parents with each other.

To unlock all content in Light in the Dark, gamers must also spotlight stars on each level, in addition to the baby totems.  The more stars players highlight, the more levels they reveal.
My kids downloaded the game on to their iPads. My youngest son thinks its neat! He is still playing the game and He downloaded it over an hour
My oldest son is playing it off and on. My teenage daughter thinks it cool and fun!
They give this challenging game a 5 out of 5!

Glen Campbell's I'll Be Me Movie ~ Review and Soundtrack Giveaway

From the producer of “Walk the Line”…

In 2011, when Glen Campbell was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease, he joined forces with his family to fight the biggest battle of his life. Glen and his wife, Kim, made history by going public with the diagnosis – the first time a major American celebrity would share this experience with the world. The Campbell family then embarked on a short “Goodbye Tour,” but the three-week engagement turned into an emotional and triumphant 151-show nationwide tour de force.  

The film features those who know and love Glen, including Bruce Springsteen, Bill Clinton, The Edge, Paul McCartney, Jay Leno, Vince Gill, Jimmy Webb, Blake Shelton, Sheryl Crow, Keith Urban, Brad Paisley, Steve Martin, Chad Smith and Taylor Swift among many others. Rare vintage footage and extraordinary new performances of Glen’s most beloved hits immerse this moving cinematic account in the overwhelming talent of this humble family man. With joy and a tireless sense of humor, Glen and his family live each moment in the present while preparing for the future, all while playing their music to sold out venues on a star spangled voyage spanning the country from Carnegie Hall to the Hollywood Bowl.

The movie was hard to watch. I remember watching Glen Campbell when I was younger. The movie shows Cambell going to the dr and then following him doing shows and how Alzheimer’s disease is effecting him and his family. It is a great drama that shows the great bond between him and his wife Kim and how much they trully care for each other I'll Be Me shows just how much they would not give up against all odds. It is a wonderful and touching movie!

I have always been a Neil Diamond fan! When I got the chance to review his new album, I jumped right on it! Neil is one of the world’s best selling artists with over 125 million albums sold to date!

  The album, marks his first original studio release in six years and first since signing with Capitol Records.  Acclaimed producers Don Was and Jacknife Lee co-produced the album. In addition, there will be a special 36-page lyric book with guitar chords included in the packaging of each album.

His New Album Melody Road lives up to the hype! I Loved the new album. Neil sounds great, voice is still excellent. My favorite song off the album is "Something Blue". His song have a way to pick you up and make you sing along. If you are a Diamond fan then you have to grab this album!!

You can pre-order/order at Amazon and iTunes

Mary Lambert #HeartOnMySleeve #O2O

One of the best things about being a blogger is getting introduced to new albums and singers. Thanks to One2One network my family and I were introduced to Mary Lambert. Heart on My Sleeve is her new album. It is packed full with 14 great songs. Her voice is awesome and easy to listen to!

 Heart On My Sleeve is an honest depiction of where Lambert is now. This year has been the best of my entire life, which is not to say it hasn't come with its fair share of hurdles, heartbreak, and harsh lessons, she says. I can only write about the experiences I've had. I signed to a major label. I went through a break-up. I figured out how to be an independent person. I have been terrifyingly honest to the public about traumatic events in my life. I met the woman of my dreams. I have been on the road nonstop, away from those I love, but with the opportunity to sing about gay rights to hundreds of thousands of people. This album is inspired by the depth of all of that love, and the journey that it takes to get there.

check out the songs and order ~

For more info on Mary Lambert
Official Mary Lambert Website

Mary Lambert is a true inspiration to anyone. The songs are easy to listen to and you can feel all the feelings in every song on the album. My daughter plays the album often. She really likes it. MY favorite song off the album is Jessie's Girl. My daughters favorite song is So Far Away. Her voice is awesome and you will love this album. We give the album a 5 out of 5! 

Note:   I participated in the Mary Lambert Heart On My Sleeve album review program as a member of One2One Network. I was provided a free album to review but all opinions are my own.

  Operation Smile is an international children's medical charity that heals children's smiles, forever changing their lives. Every three minutes a child is born with a cleft. One in 10 of those children will die before their first birthday. The children who survive are often unable to eat, speak, socialize or smile. In some places, they are shunned and rejected. And in too many cases, their parents can't afford to give them the surgeries they need to live a productive life. Operation Smile is the largest volunteer-based medical charity providing free cleft surgeries. Since 1982, Operation Smile — through the help of dedicated medical volunteers — has provided more than 3.5 million comprehensive patient evaluations and over 200,000 free surgeries for children and young adults born with facial deformities.
