Mobile Monday

JohnBOh happy day! It's tough to resist a classic arcade game making its way to a mobile phone. So, no resisting took place and Time Crisis was immediately obtained. Another excellent game makes the transition from non-mobile to mobile this week, and it's another one you should allow temptation to get the better of resistance and obtain!

bittripbeat.gifBit.Trip Beat - Fans of the WiiWare download service will recognize this stylish music-based retro game! Bit.Trip Beat is all about tilting the iPhone to move a paddle and reflecting the dots that fly towards you. That sounds way too simple in writing, but when you play the game, you'll realize how brilliant the musical interaction is with this game, and how challenging things get after just a few minutes of play. The mobile platform is a perfect fit for the game, and the port was handled flawlessly, bringing yet another superb game from the confines of console gaming to the palms of your hands.

timecrisis2nd.jpgTime Crisis 2nd Strike - If you're like many gamers who grew up playing games in brick and mortar arcades, seeing a title like Time Crisis 2nd Strike on the iPhone will probably cause a double take. Believe it or not, it's true! Time Crisis is an on-rails shooter that attracted players because it included a light gun and a pedal to control the action. You spend your time automatically moving between safe spots, taking cover behind crates, and shooting the bad guys who crawl out of every nook and cranny across the maps. For the mobile version, you can choose between several control sets to emulate the taking cover action as well as reloading, allowing you to tap icons on the screen or tilt the device as you desire. If you can look past the bad voice acting, the touch screen actually does a great job emulating the intense shooting experience of the original, and you'll have an excellent time with this robust and challenging game!

leapsheep.jpgLeap Sheep! - It's time to leap the fence! Sheep come sauntering in from the left side of the screen. Tap them once to jump, and at the apex of the jump, tap them again to perform a trick. If you miss a jump, the sheep gets stuck against the fence, making future leaps all the more difficult. Don't worry, though, as the tricks you perform fill the ram meter to the right, allowing you to summon a ram to clear the lazy sheep from the field. A great-looking game that plays like a dream!

Aw man, Time Crisis. The movie theater nearby seems to make a point of keeping their little arcade stocked with it's sequels; when I was a wee lad, it was Time Crisis 2, and me and my dad sacrificed many a quarter to its capitalistic hunger. Nostalgia.
