Indiana Jones Game for BlackBerryIndiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull

Wouldn't you know it?... I returned from watching this very movie at the theatre not long ago, and Bplay has released a game based on the movie. The movie? Was pretty good. Lots of action...most Indiana Jones fans will be pleased. The game? Haven't tried it yet but it looks not half bad. Take control of Dr. Jones and Mutt Williams as you search for the Crystal Skull.

Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull is available for $9.99 from Bplay >


Babe Blocks for BlackBerryBabe Blocks for BlackBerry

Just rolls off the tongue doesn't it? Say it 10 times fast.

Babe Blocks is a fun little game based on a popular concept. Match 3 or more of the same colored bricks and those bricks will 'pop'. Pop all of the bricks to reveal the Beautiful Babe hidden behind the game board. Gameplay is exciting, there are 5 levels of increasing difficulty, and you can even play in one of two game modes: small blocks or big blocks.

If you're looking for a fun game with a sexy twist, Babe Blocks might be for you.

Premium iVista BlackBerry ThemesPremium iVista BlackBerry Themes

Another new theme hit ShopCrackBerry.com earlier this week... and it's a good one. Z Man Themes, who has already brought us a bunch of free themes has introduced a new premium theme called iVista.

Why is it premium? The Z Man actually worked with our community to fine-tune this theme. The attention to detail is amazing, and if you purchase it for yourself I think you will agree!

The iVista Premium BlackBerry Theme is available for $7 at ShopCrackBerry.com:

VR+ 2.4.1VR+ 2.4.3

Another new version of VR+ was announced earlier this week. This time it's version 2.4.3.

As far as I can tell it doesn't look like much has changed at all in this new version... and of course there is no change log to view to find out exactly what has been updated.

Only thing I can tell so far that has been updated is the method for posting to Twitter. Recordings are now being reported as posted and visible in Twitter timelines using this updated version of VR+.

Scratch that, VR+ up to 2.4.3, I love progress.

James Falconer

Wow... now THAT was fast :)

sandydurst

This is great! The function that adjust the measurements for different serving sizes is a huge help.

James Falconer

Sandy,

Yeah, that function is pretty handy... helps when you want to whip something up for a group larger or smaller than the recipe calls for.
