Mobile Monday

JohnBOh, happy day! It's a bunch of games I get to play! From bombs to swords to ghosts in a maze. Now its time to sit and be laze. Er, lazy. Lazey. Laz— oh, forget it.

implode.gifImplode! - Physics puzzle games shouldn't be allowed to be this fun. Working in a visual environment that looks like an architect's blueprint, your job is to bring down the frame structures using a few well-placed pieces of dynamite. Take out support beams, weaken critical areas to reduce the carefully-crafted structure to a pile of twigs hovering below the target line. Loads of levels, three difficulty settings, and a personal favorite feature, lefty mode, make Implode! one of the best physics puzzle games on the iPhone.

minimae.gifRPG Quest: Minimæ - Like RPGs but hate all that reading, questing, item management stuff? Minimæ is here to save the day! With retro-style pixel art and chiptune-like music, venture through the kingdom searching for hidden stashes of gold as you try and locate eight missing rings for the king. Minimæ is a straightforward grind fest where you balance combat and damage with earning gold and buying new, more accurate weapons. Surprisingly fulfilling for such a simple concept.

hauntedmirror.gifHaunted Mirror Maze - Here's a puzzle game that will take you a while to wrap your brain around. Zombies, ghosts and vampires inhabit a maze. Using number clues around the perimeter of the grid, you must determine where each spook is located. The catch is there are mirrors that affect what you can see, and to top it off, ghosts can only be seen if reflected by a mirror, and vampires are invisible to mirrors. Make sense? Once you see the game, you'll have a better idea what's going on. Mastering the concept is challenging, but a wealth of levels ensures you have plenty of room to practice. The free Haunted Mirror Maze Lite is also available.

Loved the haunted mirror mazes in GAMES, so I'm glad to see that puzzle get its own app. But let's be honest: 50 puzzles isn't a "wealth", even if the developer promises to release more.

I have to say I'm disappointed in the app store as a whole for not having many games with an inexhaustible supply of puzzles. I'd really like to get one of these games and have it last me more than a week, so I can have a constant source of amusement on the train without looking for new apps all the time. It can't be that hard to make a thousand puzzles with a computer, can it? There are plenty of sites that generate hundreds of millions of Sudokus and the like. It'd be nice to see mobile developers do the same.

Can we not rename "Mobile Monday" to "iMonday"? Other phones DO have games on them...

[Edit: Perhaps, but not nearly as many or as interesting as the iPhone has currently. If and when the situation changes, we will expand our coverage. In the meantime, Mobile gaming is defined: iPhone. -Jay]
