Battleheart on your iPhone

Monday, February 28th, 2011

So this weekend was rather strange. I mean it snowed in Vancouver! During all the craziness I spent a lot of time in my apartment under a blanket where it was warm. I wasn’t always able to sleep so at some point I downloaded one of the featured games on the iStore, Battleheart…
