I have been working for some time now on some projects requiring WordPress SEO.

These projects are self-hosted blogs, so I came up with a list of SEO plugins every blog should have.

This particular post is about optimizing the loading time of your WordPress site or blog.

7 WordPress SEO Plugins that will optimize your page loading speed:

A Silent Night – Christmas Game for iPhone & iPad

December 14, 2010 2 comments

Christmas is almost here and I cannot wait for it! Since we are already in the holiday mood, I think a Christmas Game for our iPhone or iPad would bright up our day.

While I start looking for a Christmas Game that would be very fun and easy to play for kids, I found A Silent Night.

Here is the video for this wonderful endurance game for Christmas:

The story behind this game is cute and simple:

Christmas Eve is almost here and Santa is ready to deliver gifts.

You have to help Santa to fill his sleigh with presents by collecting children’s dreams and avoid nightmares. Once the dreams are collected, you have to fly over the villages and share the presents only to children who have gone to bed. All you have to remember is to avoid delivering gifts to children who are still awake (have their lights on).
Fly from village to village and see how long you can last.

I also read some of  its features:
– Works on both iPhone (3G, 3GS and iPhone4) and iPad – which is great, as you don’t have to buy it for iPad
– Retina Display ready – for those who are keen on gadgets and already got their iPhone 4
– Game Center Leaderboards and Achievments – works very nicely on iPhone 4

Share and Enjoy!
