Mobile Monday

JohnBA few old games made new populate this edition of Mobile Monday. Namco is releasing a choice few of its classic arcade games on the iTunes App Store, one of which is Galaga! EA is also jumping on the retro bandwagon with Lemonade Tycoon, a mobile port of the original Shockwave game that made mixing lemonade the cool thing to do.

peggle-iphone.jpgPeggle - Peggle for iPhone OS is finally here! It has everything from the PC version you fell in love with, including the same addictive gameplay, the same challenges and trophies, and the same realistic physics with which to make all those skill shots. It's like carrying the PC version with you where ever you go. Aiming is supported with 3 degrees of precision: touch anywhere to aim; a (soft) scroll wheel for smaller increments; and double-tap zoom mode for those precision skill shots when you're down to your last ball for Extreme Fever! You can even save replays for reliving those classic Peggle moments.

fnurgletoe.gifFnurgletoe - Inspired by the game of Egg Chess (and reminiscent of Tic-Tac-Toe/Noughts and Crosses), Fnurgletoe is a casual game of strategy and short-term planning. The goal is to complete a line of identical orbs on the 3x3 grid. You and an opponent (either the iPhone or an IRL human) take turns placing eggs of three different sizes. On your turn you can make any small egg larger or place your own in an empty space. Out-maneuver your opponent FTW!

galagaremix.jpgGalaga REMIX - There's nothing like reliving a bit of nostalgia! Galaga REMIX features the original Galaga arcade game — released in 1981, for those that can remember that far back — updated for the touch-enabled mobile platform. In addition to the faithful port is a remixed version featuring better visuals, boss battles, new weapons and more. It may be too simple for those raised in the modern age of gaming, but if you cut your gaming teeth in an arcade, this is a little slice of yum. A free Galaga REMIX Lite is also available.

lemonadetycoon.gifLemonade Tycoon - The original Lemonade Tycoon game is back, ready to buff up your business management skills while you ride the bus to work. Check the weather forecast before your sales day begins, then tweak your lemonade recipe (more sugar? more ice?) to attract customers, fiddle with your pricing structure, buy supplies and much more. It's one of the best classic sim games around, and even though it looks dated on the iPhone, it's still as addictive as ever. And FREE. Aaaand now I want a glass of lemonade...

bebot.jpgBebot: Robot Synth - Not a game, but you can have as much fun or more with this great little synthesizer/musical toy. Bebot is a feature-rich, real-time musical synthesizer with a unique interface that takes advantage of the iPhone's multitouch surface. Up to 4 notes can be played simultaneously, using multiple fingers, by touching or sliding your fingers around the screen. A variety of presets offer immediate fun on-the-go, and a wide array of parameters allow for customizable sounds that you can save and load later at any time. Use Bebot as a musical toy or as an instrument to play along with your favorite iPod music.

I think you'll find that Galaga came out in 1981, not 1979.
