Mobile Monday

JohnBAs the holiday season approaches, game developers start rolling out the big guns. Today's selection features some great-looking games that provide tons of entertainment, all packed neatly in their tiny little iPhone packages. Ain't they cute? Yes, yes they are cute.

lamecastle.jpgLame Castle - You and your lame castle. Bet I could knock the whole thing over with nothing more than my javelin! In fact, let's test that out. This Canabalt-style running game puts you in the boots of a knight on "horseback" charging across the kingdom. Jump over obstacles and use your javelin to smash into things, and keep an eye out for floating chests and other nifty bonuses. Make it to the end of the short-ish level and you'll topple the castle and move on to the next stage! Each area also has an optional task you can complete for an achievement, like punting chickens, earning a certain amount of cash, or performing other strange tasks.

kosmospin.jpgKosmo Spin - A simple little game with a simple goal: entertain you for short stretches of time. Breakfast foods are in danger of being abducted by a UFO, and being the helpful little critter that you are, you decide to save the cups of coffee, pieces of toast, and other yummy foods. All you have to do is spin the entire universe! Slide your finger to rotate the game world and move around the planet, picking up any foods you touch. Watch for the alien's abduction beam, as it'll end your game, and be sure to bounce back any objects the UFO drops towards the planet with your tough head. Ain't nobody gonna touch my muffins!

masterofalchemy.jpgMaster of Alchemy - A lot of us scheming gamers secretly wish we could master the elements and become alchemical geniuses. Master of Alchemy teases us with a bit of that, providing a physics-based puzzle experience not unlike Enigmo 2 or other similar building games. Each level features dispensers that create solids, liquids, or gases of certain colors. Using an inventory of tools, you must convert these elements into the proper type and color and direct them to the goal. Naturally, each element acts like the real thing, so in order to move things up high, you'll need to turn them into a gas, and so on. It starts off a bit slow, but later levels are great, and the game looks and plays as smoothly as you could want!

Checked out Lame Castle cause it sounded like a joke. Oh man it's not a joke at all. Punting Chickens is so fun.

Checked out Lame Castle cause I thought it sounded like a joke, but it's quite fun. Graphics are good, they look like pencil drawings.

Lame Castle is also a direct comeback to an ad campaign by (I believe) Sony's PSP, where a kid named Marcus mocks someone for gaming on their mobile phone because all the games on their are "baby" games or something similar. (The mobile game the other person is playing is called "Lame Castle") The general implication is that the PSP rules, and all mobile games suck. In other words, the commercial LIES!!

@JohnB: that javelin is actually called a lance.

Well, something weird just happened to me--went in to check out Master of Alchemy and in the 2 minutes between the time I opened the iTunes page and when I finished reading the reviews, the price changed from $2.99 to $4.99!! haha--so the footnote that prices are subject to change are SERIOUS!!
