After Apple’s performance at WWDC, the tide of media opinion seems to be turning against the company whose every word once made journalists salivate. Since the announcement of iOS7: 

Dave Winer (inventor of RSS) stated that he isn’t happy being an Apple shareholder.

TechCrunch reports on Apple’s extraordinarily aggressive (and negative) attitude towards developers.

As does Mashable.

The Verge deemed iOS7 “Simply confusing” and a “misstep”.

And Mashable polls “underwhelmed” Apple fans.

EDIT: Wired jumps on too, looking at the reaction on Wall Street.

Cubemen mostly succeeds with new take on tower defense

Cubemen’s aggressively simple design combined with clever manipulations of traditional genre mechanics creates play that is fun, but slightly too long.

The game presents the player with three game types. Each revolves around a variety of three-dimensional levels, two or more spawn points, and the titular cubemen, voxel-style humanoids with access to a variety of weapons and color coding.

Units within the game are split between two classes. The first are your soldiers, units purchased with the game’s currency that fall into the standard Tower Defense types, including slowing units, morters, flamethrowers and the rest. The second type are spawned cubemen, who are created automatically by enemy spawn points in the Defense gametype and by both sides’ spawns in Skirmish and Mayhem modes.
