Mobile Monday

JohnBEver wonder what it would be like if we lived underwater? Like, if it were normal that everything was surrounded by water and we could breathe with gills and stuff. I'm thinking ice cream would be an entirely different concept on that wet world...

beatit.gifBeat It! - One of the best rhythm games on the iTunes App Store, Beat It! skips all the guitar-related design theories and goes straight to the core of the music itself. Listen to a short, (relatively) simple piece of music for a few seconds, then re-create the tune by filling in squares on a grid of instruments. It's easy to pick up and play, but mastering it requires a little effort (and a pair of headphones). Handy power-ups and beautiful pixel art are the icing on the cake!

tipoli.jpgTipoli - A dreamy sort of physics platformer with great one-button controls. Periwinkle is bouncy. Mint is sticky. Periwinkle and Mint are bound together. With the tap of a finger, you can instantly swap their positions, moving forward by switching them at key moments to harvest momentum. Now, get them to the lovely heart at the end of each stage! A wonderfully crafted reflex-based game that's instantly familiar to any casual gamer but presents a fresh new presentation for extra enjoyment. JIG readers might remember this one originally appearing as a Mac/Windows game originally titled The Illusory Persistence of LOVE.

decades.jpgDecades - One part isometric match-3, one part word game (in a 'guess the word from the letters' Wheel of Fortune kind of way), Decades pulls a lot of interesting ideas together to create a surprisingly fluid puzzle experience. Blocks fall from the top of the screen to a single row on the floor. Rotate them as you see fit, and when they touch ground, they slide to the far side of the screen. Match three like colors together (keeping in mind the blocks stack on top of each other) to make them disappear. Some blocks have letters on them that help complete a word or phrase at the top of the screen, and there are a few item-type blocks that produce interesting effects when matched. The game takes places in ten different decades, each with its own backdrop and themed items, which adds a nice level of visual variety to an already interesting concept.

endlooptritowers.jpgArcade Solitaire: TriTowers - One of the smoothest implementations of TriTowers on the App Store, this one not only looks great, it plays well and has some unlockables to boot! You know the drill: clear all cards in the three stacks by pulling face-up cards into the deck that are one higher or one lower than your hand. Unlock new skins to give the game a new look, and try out survival mode to see how long you can last.
