Mobile Monday

JohnBIt's old school games and puzzle experiences that dominate this episode of Mobile Monday! Also, it seems like we've included two furry animals in the lot. Subtle marketing ploy to get you to buy kitty litter and JayIsGames Brand Monkey Food? We're not saying. But, on an unrelated note, if we did make a packaged monkey food, would you buy it?

monkeylabour.gifMonkey Labour - Old school LCD handhelds will never die, not even when super-futuristic touch screen devices rule the world! This lovely emulated LCD game is all about carrying piles of wood from the conveyor belt to the furnace. Problem is, a monkey is standing above you trying to bonk you on the head. Stoke the fire with several logs, and when the monkey is below the lit burner, let him have a taste of fire! A great game of its own accord, but if nostalgia rules your video game budget, you should definitely grab this one right away!

forgetmenot.gifForget-Me-Not - Mazes plus monsters plus shooting equals so much fun. Run around the Pac-Man-esque corridors as you pick up dots and shoot at enemies. Nab the key and head to the door to exit the floor and make your way to deeper, more difficult levels. Old school retro stylings make this game feel like it should be on an arcade cabinet, and the high score-centric skill-based gameplay reinforces that aesthetic. Just how good are you at picking up dots, anyway?!

robotwantskittyiphone.gifRobots Wants Kitty - The browser game we all adore, now on iPhone! Mike Hommel's fantastic exploration platformer has made a smooth transition to the small touch screen, porting everything over with a surprisingly functional control scheme and a nice bump up in visual style. As cold, metallic things are wont to do, this robot is seeking something furry and warm. Is there anything furrier or warmer than a kitty? Answer: NO! To get the kitty, you'll need to upgrade your abilities and traverse a ton of terrain, solving puzzles and navigating through enemies along the way. In short: great metroidvania action!

pixelshift.gifPixel Shift - Have you ever gotten angry at and subsequently tossed a Rubik's Cube across the room? Or, less likely, have you actually solved one? Pixel Shift is sort of a two dimensional Rubik's Cube. Slide the grid in rows and columns with the touch of a finger. The goal is to arrange the pixels to match the small picture on the side of the screen. Naturally, this is never so easy, and it requires logic and forethought to master. Just like the 3D cube!

Tons of love to RwK, naturally, but this week's winner is Forget me not. Discovered it a couple of weeks ago, and it's idiotically fun!
