Mobile Monday

JohnBWell, it was only a matter of time. While not everyone on the JIG staff is a fan of social games, they seem to be gaining ground like a bowling ball tied to a freight train rolling down a hill. We Rule is the first heavy-hitting social app to hit the iPhone, and it's got the mojo needed to draw in an enormous player base.

werule.jpgWe Rule - From iPhone developer ngmoco (creator of Topple and Rolando, among others) comes the addictive social game experience the App Store has been craving. We Rule is a lot like a certain farming game for Facebook. Plant and harvest crops to earn some cash, then spend that cash to upgrade your little village to include houses and other businesses, all of which bring in a little more money. Invite friends to build their farm near yours and keep expanding your village. The farm works in real-time, meaning if a crop says it takes five hours to grow, look at your clock and come back in five hours to harvest it. The game is driven by microtransactions in the form of mojo, completely optional "potions" that, when used, make things happen immediately. If you're impatient, a little cash can speed things up, otherwise it's easy to make do with the mojo you get for leveling up. Share your Plus+ username in the comments below to get a few new We Rule pals in on the fun.

idropdead.jpgiDrop Dead - From Perfect Balance creator Ttursas comes a mega-gory game that's all about destroying cute little ragdolls. Toss the doll with the flick of a finger, sending it into buzzsaws, whirling traps, exploding mines, and lots of other contraptions. Do as much damage as you possibly can to score more points and unlock new levels. Some of the point requirements to proceed are a bit steep, forcing you to go back and replay levels with your fingers crossed hoping for a higher score, but it's strangely addicting and otherwise built very well. The free iDropDead Lite is also available. If cartoonish blood isn't your thing, iDrop Dead: Flower Edition and iDrop Dead: Flower Edition Lite replace the "gore" with cute, sweet things like... flowers!

earthvsmoon.jpgEarth vs Moon - Always thought the Earth and its lovely satellite were best of friends? You were apparently wrong! Missiles are careening towards our blue planet, and the only way you can save it is to launch your own volley of missiles. It plays a lot like the classic Missile Command, only power-ups and certain special moves make things way more interesting. The free Earth vs Moon Lite is also available.

I completely missed the Facebook agricultural bandwagon, so I might give We Rule a small try. I fear its possible addictive powers...

I'm on We Rule with the ID TheSporkWithin, feel free to add me. Been having a great deal more fun with it than I expected to.

Tips for people starting out: Once you can get them tailoring shops are the best way to get some money, and also the best thing to use your mojo on, I'd strongly recommend hanging onto your level up mojo for when people start placing orders at your shops
Another tip is that the shorter the growth time, the more profitable a crop is if you harvest and replant it promptly. I generally stick to onions or strawberries during the day, planting a longer-growth crop like carrots before going to bed.

We Rule has been a little slow and buggy. Possibily with all the people playing they are having a little trouble handling the load. But otherwise a good game.

Thanks a lot for the hints!

I've just started on this game last night and got addicted already. I'm currently on level 8 with shops include:

6 tailor shops (more will come)
2 mining camps
2 ponds
1 school

If interested, please add - Plus+ ID: Chibik0

I haven't had any orders yet, so am quite eager to get my first one... Looking forward to doing business with you all :)

Oh, don't know if this is mentioned. I've found a quick way to earn money is to click on the advert (earn free coins on the map, not the one on the bottom of the screen). I've been earning lots of 250 coins since yesterday (hence all the shop constructions)...
