Unique Nintendo DS Platformer ‘Drawn to Life’ Now Available on iOS

Back in 2007, before smartphones and tablets had really taken hold, the fact that the Nintendo DS had a touchscreen was a pretty novel thing. Many times it was simply used as a gimmick or touchscreen stuff was shoehorned into a game type that didn’t really need it, but the possibilities of doing truly unique things with a touchscreen and stylus were definitely there. One of the coolest concepts for using the DS’s touchscreen was 5th Cell’s Drawn to Life. Well, just this morning, 505 Games, probably best known for bringing Terraria to iOS devices, has brought Drawn to Life [$4.99] to iOS as well.

As I said, the concept for Drawn to Life is pretty cool. You actually draw your own main character, weapons, items, and much more, and use all your homemade creations in an adventure. While that sounds very neat in theory, it doesn’t necessarily translate to a great game. Don’t get me wrong, Drawn to Life is definitely quirky and fun, but it feels more focused on the creation aspects while the actual platforming and adventuring feel somewhat generic. Still, it’s a neat game that’s well worth checking out if the concept interests you, and I’m happy to see it’s made its way to iOS. Also, check out more impressions of Drawn to Life on iOS  in our forums.

Quem fizer doações para caridade poderá ser figurante do novo Star Wars

Melhor do que saber que um novo Star Wars vem aí, só saber que você pode participar dele. O diretor J.J. Abrams apareceu em um vídeo e anunciou uma campanha de caridade criada pela Disney chamada Star Wars: Force for Change, e quem participar dela poderá der um figurante dofilme previsto para ser lançado no ano que vem.

A campanha de caridade em questão funciona de maneira bem parecida com campanhas de financiamento coletivo no Kickstarter, por exemplo. Ao longo dos próximos 58 dias, ao fazer uma doação pelo Omaze, você pode ganhar diversos brindes relacionados ao novo filme da saga, além de participar de uma cena dele.

São diversas quantias que podem ser doadas, cada uma com um prêmio diferente. Doe US$ 10 e seja nomeado um dos membros fundadores da Star Wars Force Member. Doe US$ 100 e ganhe uma camiseta especial da saga. Doe US$ 2.500 e ganhe um busto do Chewbacca. Ou doe US$ 50.000 e assista o filme um dia antes dele sair nos cinemas. Outros valores também podem ser doados – confira todos no Omaze – e a quantia arrecada será usada pelos laboratórios de inovação da UNICEF.

Ao final da campanha, um felizardo será sorteado e ganhará uma viagem para o set onde está sendo gravado o novo Star Wars em Abu Dhabi, nos Emirados Árabes, e ainda gravará uma cena ao lado de um acompanhante. Mesmo quem doar US$ 10 poderá de ser sorteado, mas, quanto mais você doar, mais chances terá de participar do filme.

Star Wars: Episode VII ainda não tem um nome final, mas já tem data de lançamento: o primeiro filme da nova trilogia da saga criada por George Lucas (e vendida para a Disney) chegará às salas de cinema no dia 18 de dezembro de 2015. [The Verge]

O FBI tem dificuldade em contratar hackers que não fumam maconha

O FBI tem um problema. A agência precisa contratar hackers para montar sua divisão de crimes cibernéticos, mas também não quer contratar quem tenha fumado maconha nos últimos três anos. O problema é que muitos hackers gostam de fumar maconha.

É um verdadeiro dilema. Mas é um dilema no qual o FBI está trabalhando. Na segunda-feira, o diretor James Comey disse a uma plateia no Instituto White Collar Crime sobre seu pequeno problema de erva. “Eu preciso contratar uma ótima força de trabalho para competir com os criminosos cibernéticos, e alguns desses garotos querem fumar maconha a caminho da entrevista,” disse Comey. Exatamente como fazer isso é a parte difícil. Comey ainda disse que a agência está “lidando com a questão neste momento”, e deu a entender que o FBI considera aceitar usuários da droga.

Mas, aparentemente, nem todo mundo gostou dos comentários de Comey sobre maconha. Um senador anti-drogas puxou o assunto durante uma reunião no Senado americano nesta quarta-feira, e em um certo momento, o diretor do FBI recuou um pouco na sua declaração. “Eu sou completamente contra o uso de maconha”, disse Comey, deixando claro que é contra fumar a erva.

Então como o FBI solucionará essa questão? Ele começará a contratar maconheiros? Provavelmente não. Mas parece que a agência se prepara para aceitar a ideia de contratar pessoas que gostam de participar desta atividade que é legalizada em dois estados dos EUA e é praticamente legal em muitos outros. O próprio Comey reconheceu isso – ele disse que não quer alterar a restrição, mas o FBI já pensa nessa alternativa. [WSJ]

Welcome to another week of new iOS games. It felt like it might be kind of a “weak week” but it’s actually turned out to be pretty stellar. The new X-Men game looks rad, Everplay’s Bill Killem feels like Super Crate Box meets Canabalt (which is awesome), and OTTTD actually has me stoked to play a tower defense game for once. Oh, and totally get Bounden, it’s one of the most unique experiences I’ve ever had on the iOS platform. You have to be all touchy feely with another human being though, so it’s not for everyone. Finally, there’s a freaking MacGyver game. Do I need to say any more than that?

Darkcoin, uma alternativa anônima ao Bitcoin, está bombando

Lançado em janeiro, o Darkcoin é uma alternativa ao Bitcoin que promete ainda mais anonimato e segurança nas transações. E, do nada, a moeda estourou – sua cotação pulou de cerca de US$ 0,75 para quase US$ 7 em questão de um mês.

O que é o Darkcoin? É como o Bitcoin, mas com uma camada a mais de anonimato. As redes do Bitcoin permitem que qualquer pessoa veja as transações que estão sendo feitas em um livro público de contabilidade. Para disfarçar o que você está fazendo, é preciso de uns passos a mais do que simplesmente transferir as moedas virtuais. Muitos usuários usam serviços de lavanderia para desvincular o endereço e evitar que a origem da moeda seja identificada.

O que o Darkcoin faz de diferente? Ele automaticamente combina as transações feitas pelos usuários com as de outras pessoas, misturando tudo e dificultando ainda mais que a origem seja identificada por alguém que esteja bisbilhotando a rede.

Essa pequena diferença aparentemente atraiu muita gente, e o total de moedas de Darkcoins já supera US$ 30 milhões. Mas nem todo mundo acha que o crescimento é exatamente natural – segundo a Wired, é provável que seja fruto de especulação, e, nesse caso, a qualquer momento pode ocorrer o crash do Darkcoin, com uma desvalorização da moeda.

Independentemente disso, essa é mais uma criptomoeda a ganhar força após a explosão do Bitcoin no ano passado. Entre Dogecoins e CoinYes, entre muitas outras, no entanto, nenhuma apresentou um crescimento tão rápido quanto o Darkcoin. Se ela durará muito tempo, só o tempo nos dirá. [Wired]
