To celebrate today’s 27th Annual Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, Amazon are offering some of our favorite titles from the brilliant “33 1/3” series, which explores popular music through in-depth examinations of seminal albums, from Exile on Main Streetto Paul’s Boutique. You can get 10 of 88 books with special price $0.99 each.
Also Amazon offers a game: Reversi Paper Blobs. You can download it for free today only.
Classic Strategy, Blob Style.
In Reversi Paper Blob, help the friendly green blobs vanquish the evil spiky blobs. Flank your opponent’s blobs in order to convert them into friendly blobs. Capture heart squares to convert more of your opponent’s blobs. Avoid the skull squares, as the occupying blobs will decay over time.
Matter of Life and Death
If you’ve played Othello or Reversi, you’ll find the gameplay here familiar, but the new skeleton and heart squares–plus those quirky, funny, blobby character pieces–add both extra challenges and endearing elements to a deceptively simple game. Capture and hold a heart square through a countdown timer, and all of the surrounding pieces reverse to match your blob. Land on a skull, and your piece eventually fades away.
The game also offers two different modes. Learn the game through single-player mode against one of four different AIs, or challenge a friend in the two-player hot-seat mode.
