Mobile Monday

JohnBOhhhh that's right, more fun times with your neat-o Android devices! This batch of games will help fill your sweet Android phone with some much-needed entertainment. Click on the game name to check out the developer's website in your browser, and use a barcode scanning app to scan the QR codes and start downloading the games to your phone.

dot2.gifDot 2 - Smooth, simple, stylish, easy on system resources, Dot 2 (or .. to be perfectly accurate) is one of those games that will amaze you when it holds your interest for half an hour. Tilt your phone back and forth to pilot the white orb through the 3D landscape. You're constantly shrinking, which is bad, so you'll need to touch the blue orbs to keep your size constant. Hit a red pyramid and you shrink. Now, see how long you can last! The game plays much more precisely if you can sit your phone on a solid surface and lift the edges, but a bouncy bus ride isn't a bad place, either.

totemo.jpgTotemo - A quiet, thoughtful puzzle game with a great visual style, Totemo is all about matching sets of critters using the touch screen. If there are two idols stacked on the totem to the left, you'll need to eliminate pairs of puzzle pieces at a time. If there are three idols, three must be grouped to disappear. Pieces can only be grouped if they're in a single row or column and are facing each other. Work your way from the outside in, matching orbs as efficiently as you can, always keeping your eye five moves ahead so you don't match your way into a stalemate. Totemo Lite (QR code to the left) features ten levels to warm you up to the game, while the full version of Totemo is packed with 60.

locigpic.gifLogicPic - Picross doesn't have much of a showing on the Android marketplace, but that doesn't mean LogicPic is a slouch. This no-frills logic puzzle game is entirely touch screen operated, allowing you to both mark and cross out bits of the grid with a tap of the finger. You can even mark squares as "uncertain", something few picross games on any platform bother to include. Lots of puzzles in several difficulty categories give you plenty to do, and even though the interface doesn't scream "awesome", this is a solid picross game you'll have a hard time topping.

spacephysics.jpgSpace Physics - If Crayon Physics Deluxe took place in the inky void of space, it would be this game. Use your finger to draw ramps, platforms, or mass-filled geometric shapes to push a ball to the goal. Sometimes you'll need to create simple machines that swing around pivot points to get the job done. Nice neon-lit style, and the puzzles are interesting, if sometimes too simple. The installation is a bit of a nuisance, as the game download is only the engine and visuals, you must download a separate file from the marketplace to add the levels. Search for "Pack for Space Physics" from your phone. But once you're past that, it's an easy and fun way to pass the time. Scan the QR code on the left for Space Physics Lite.

NOTE: Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info. Games have been confirmed to run on Android 2.1 on an HTC Eris.

If Mobile Monday were a company, I'd buy stock in it. It's only going to get more popular from here :)

Thank you so much for doing Mobile Monday for Android! It's such a pain to sort through the humongous app store for good games, so I very much appreciate shortcuts (and QR codes!).

I'm really happy you featured a picross game. Now I'm going to run the battery out on my Incredible every day.

I am offically a Mobile Monday hater.
I bought an iPad, and I have been waiting for some "iPad only!" based mobile monday, but all you do is ANDROID PHONES!

"Yay I can scan 3rd party gamesz but only if i has scan coed!"

I want:
"Yay! Everyone else still has that tiny iPhone? FAIL. They have to stare at the wonderful games MY, yes MY, 1,000$ iPad!"
