Pennsylvania Girl Hit by Car While Playing Pokemon GO

This game can easily be put in the same category as drunk driving or texting while driving as participants walk around with their eyes glued to their smartphones,  blindly walking into potential danger.

A Pokemon Go player, 15, has been hit by a car while playing on the popular app, prompting her mother to warn other teens to beware of the game.

Autumn Diesroth, of Pennsylvania, suffered injuries to her collarbone and foot when she was struck by the vehicle at the intersection of Ross Street and East Ninth Avenue on Tuesday afternoon.

Her mother, Tracy Nolan, says her daughter had been playing the game when she found herself at the busy highway. When she tried to cross, she was hit.

‘The Pokemon game took her across a major highway at 5 o’clock in the evening, which is rush hour,’ Nolan told Channel 11.

‘Parents, don’t let your kids play this game because you don’t want to go through what I went through last night. I really thought I was losing my daughter,’ she said.

Games You Should Be Playing: Subway Surfers

image

This is a fast paced game, so all you slackers better keep it moving. This is not the game for you. For all the other real gamers looking for a challenge, download this free game on your Android or Apple product, and be prepared for the ride of your life.

Storyline

You begin the game as Jake, a graffiti artist caught spray painting his art in a train yard. Of course, he is caught by a cop and his dog and then the game starts, as Jake runs for his life to get away from the officer. As Jake makes his escape, he picks up coins, mystery boxes and other powerups along the way. He must also dodge oncoming trains and other obstacles and barriers, placed strategically in his way.

As you collect more coins, you can buy more players, hoverboards or mystery boxes. There are also daily challenges you must complete to advance in the game.

But the real object of the game is to brag. Yes, brag. When you connect Subway Surfers to your Facebook account, you get to see the progress your Facebook friends are making. And there is nothing like competing against a friend who think they can play better than you.

Subway Surfers is not a new game, but there is always updates from the game’s producers. If you haven’t downloaded this game yet, then you’re really not a true gamer.

Games You Should Be Playing: Candy Crush Saga

So, you haven’t bought into the Candy Crush Saga craze yet, have you? Well, maybe you should because this match-3 game is seriously addictive, just like candy!

It is unlike any other match-3 game I have ever played and surpasses the likes of Bejeweled and others of its kind. The king.com creators of this game has made a unique twist out of a simple concept that leaves your sweet tooth wanting more.

Yes, you do have to match-3, but it doesn’t end there. You have to match 4 and up to get special booster candies and then you can combine those booster candies to make big happenings in order to beat the game levels and move on up the candy ladder.

But of course, it can never just be so easy. As you get higher up in the ranks, the challenges become more involved with layers of jellies, gates, and blobs of chocolates getting in the way. I swear those chocolates drive me crazy. Some levels you have to fill out orders, recipes, combos, clear the board of jellies, and/or achieve a target score.

This game can be really difficult and challenging to the point where there will be times when you just want to pull your hair out and give up, but you won’t because no way you’re going to let some sweet treats beat you down like that.

There’s also a social aspect to the game where you can connect your Candy Crush to Facebook. I highly recommend doing this because Facebook saves your progress which is helpful in case you ever have to reinstall your game or need to play the game on somewhere other than your original device. You also need your Facebook friends to send you extra lives and tickets. Tickets are needed to move forward to the next episodes.

The one big negative about this game though is they want you to pay for extra features such as more lives, moves, boosters, etc.

I paid $0.99 one time for extra lives. Never again.

Now, I know how to get unlimited lives and the Facebook integration comes in handy for that tip. So, you can definitely beat the game without buying any extras if you keep at it and learn the ins and outs of making a successful Sugar Crush level completion.

Right now, I’m on Level 169 and it’s kicking my butt hard-core. I’ve been stuck on this level for 2 weeks and it’s driving me crazy, but I will not give up. I most beat those chocolates!!

You can download and play Candy Crush Saga on any Android or iPhone device by use of Google Play or the Apple App Store or you can play it on Facebook.

Candy Crush is a deliciously sweet addictive game that you must give a try.

Happy Gaming!!
