Mobile Monday

JohnBWanna know what I did this past week? I grew flowers. I slithered around tiny planetoids. And I hurt my head messing with number puzzles. Oh, and I made a pie, but that has nothing to do with the games below.

seeknspell.jpgSeek 'n Spell - Grab a few friends (with iPhones) and head outdoors to a park or other open area for fun in the sun collecting letters to spell words and earn points. Using the GPS capabilities of the iPhone (not compatible with iPod Touch), Seek 'n Spell displays an overhead view of your location with randomly placed letters all around. When the game begins, run around and be the first to collect each letter and then spell words with the letters that you find. Highest score at the end of the game wins. Customized settings allow for games from 1 to 30 minutes in length. It's such a simple concept that works great and is a lot of fun to play!

flowergarden.jpgFlower Garden - Virtual pet games seem like more work than fun to me, but Flower Garden is changing my mind. Your garden consists of twelve pots, each filled with soil. Choose a flower seed to plant, keep it watered within the green safety zone, then kick back and wait. Not seconds or minutes, mind you, more like hours, maybe even overnight! The flowers grow while you're away, all you have to do is check up on them from time to time and see they receive enough delicious H2O. Unlock new flower seeds during the course of play, each with its own watering needs and growing times, and snip a few flowers to create a bouquet you can e-mail to a friend!

snakegalaxy.jpgSnake Galaxy - If you've played Snake once, you've played every iteration out there, right? Not necessarily. Snake Galaxy takes the ever-growing reptile into space where you curl around 3D planets in search of more power-ups. At its core, this is the same Snake you grew up playing, but the addition of gorgeous 3D environments and responsive touch controls makes it surprisingly fun. And the unlockable "themed" worlds are brilliant!

numbrosia.gifNumbrosia - Now entering the numbers-based puzzle ring, Numbrosia! The presentation leaves a lot to be desired, but once you wrap your head around this game, you wouldn't mind if it were decorated with rainbows, stars, and pastel penguins. Your goal is to make all of the squares on the grid equal zero. You can slide rows or columns with a swiping touch, or do a "math move" and add/subtract one from a row or column. The trick is in lining everything up so that a little addition or subtraction evens everything out, but the challenge is doing it in as few moves as possible.

Awww, are we not doing a weekly winner anymore? I enjoyed checking every week to see if I won!

Unfortunately, we have run into Apple's new ($100) monthly limit for gift certificate purchases, and so we must discontinue our weekly drawings.

ThemePark is last week's winner. :)

I find that funny, given that my comment stated that I don't own an iPhone. XD

Please give the certificate to someone else. :)

At the wishes of the very nice ThemePark, I would gladly take the certificate :)

I was very addicted to numbrosia when it came out as a facebook app. Glad to see that it has made the jump... I'll be getting it. I hope it has a high score listing!

Yup, high scores on Numbrosia... but not as pretty as the scorecard was on Fbook.

Snake is a decent game, but I am disappointed in the multiplier scoring system (miss one and reset back to 1x). Lots of games have this scoring problem- it just isn't very balanced.

Oh, Seek n' Spell looks really awesome! But only a few of my friends have iPhones, and they all have the first version, without GPS. Maybe in a few years enough people will have iPhones that it'll be worth buying. Or perhaps the iPod Touch will someday have GPS too. Until then, I'll just have to wait.
