Mobile Monday

JohnBThere are three things in this universe you cannot ignore: a zombie apocalypse where the zombies are part ninja, part robot, and on fire, free bacon, and a game release with not one but multiple all-star developers working behind the scenes. And SteamBirds is the latter, so practice your non-ignoring skills today!

steambirds1.jpgSteamBirds - Recognize the name? You should, as SteamBirds is a mobile port of the browser game released earlier this year, created by Andy Moore (Fantastic Contraption), Daniel Cook (Bunni), and DannyB (Canabalt). In other words, it's fantastic. The turn-based aerial dogfighting game pits you against a series of increasingly difficult enemies with your small squadron of planes. Set and change your course each turn, unleashing special abilities to keep you ahead of the game. Stay close to keep the pressure on your foes, but be careful not to play too offensively, as you'll make yourself more vulnerable than necessary. Every bit as great as the browser incarnation, and worth trying if you've got the hardware!

smurfsvillage.jpgSmurf's Village - The freemium games continue to pour in to the iTunes App Store, delivering titles such as We Rule and GodFinger. Now, Capcom gets in on the action with Smurf's Village, a village building sim starring those tiny little blue characters from the cartoon! On the run from Gargamel, the Smurfs decide to set up a new village in a secret location. In order to survive, they must grow and harvest food, and in order to attract their smurf kin back to the village, they need to keep expanding. Just like other freemium games, it takes time to grow crops, build buildings, do research, etc. Time that progresses just like in real life, so when a shop needs two hours to function again, you have to wait two hours. To speed things up, you can purchase smurf berries that instantly complete any project, though these cost real money. Smurf's Village is a lot like We Rule in design, though the added bonus of the Smurfs' visual style might just win you over.

wordmicester.jpgWord Micester - A lovely little word game that is essentially a souped-up version of single player Scrabble with multiple game modes. Help Sydney the mouse create word chains by placing letter tiles on the grid. The more elaborate the chains, the higher your chances of uncovering new labs filled with cheese. Blueprints and Evade modes allow you to fill the grid, each with their own unique restrictions, while Decode Mode is all about unscrambling letters to find the hidden password. At the end of the day, though, it's all about getting cheese. And who among us wants much more than a few word games and good cheese? Also available on the Google Play Android Games.

sirlovalot.jpgSir Lovalot - A "no-button" climbing game where you play a knight looking to rescue princesses held aloft in a really tall tower. Tilt the iPhone left and right to change direction. The knight is constantly jumping, so time your moves to land on platforms the rotating tower presents. It plays a lot like Doodle Jump mixed with "that level from Super Ghouls and Ghosts" (you know which one I'm talking about), and the challenge is certainly there, though you have to climb a bit to find falling platforms, spikes, and other dangers/helpful power-ups. The best part is the collectible loot you get to hoard!
