Mobile Monday

JohnBIngredients. Can't make anything without them. It's kind of a broad sort of statement to make, but hey, you come here for games, not for philosophical musings. Each game below uses a number of ingredients to make what we call "fun". This "fun" is an enjoyable thing you can experience with your mobile device, thus consuming ingredients which would be distasteful on their own in their properly made form.

current-iphone.gifCurrent (Universal) - If you're a fan of puzzle games, then we're a fan of you! This futuristically-styled puzzle game works a lot like the classic Puzzle Bobble with a few extra things thrown in for good measure. You are the pilot of a small ship trying to save the ARC from the dangerous Hexog. To keep the current flowing, you must draw in and fling pieces to create matches on the hexagonal grid. Sounds simple, of course, but once the enemy AI kicks in, you're in for an amazing puzzle experience.

fireflyhero.gifFirefly Hero (iPhone, iPod Touch) - One part puzzle game, one part cute fireflies, this adorable title is all about collecting little start on the screen. Tap one of the lights and the firefly is attracted to it. Tap another light and the firefly heads in that direction. Use the lights to guide the tiny bug around obstacles to gather every shining star on the screen. Later, things like spiders get in your way, forcing you to be smarter and faster with the directional changes to make it through. A cute, satisfying puzzle game with ample amounts of action and reflexed-based gameplay.

storminateacup.gifStorm in a Teacup (Universal) - Imaginative. Challenging. Cute beyond measure. And involving tea. Storm in a Teacup has the three main ingredients necessary to make a good mobile game (tea being the most important). Control Storm (who rides in a teacup) as you work your way through several dozen levels in this physics-centric puzzle platform game. Collect sugar cubes in each level and avoid angry thunderstorms along the way. A lot of imaginative powers, puzzles, and stirring action sequences make this great-looking game from Chillingo a fantastic addition to your little touch screen companion. The free Storm in a Teacup Lite is also available.

NOTE: Games noted as 'universal' have designed for iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone devices alike. 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.

I assume "Universal" means there's also Android versions of those? You forgot to put links to that though.

["Platform: Mobile (iOS)" means that these games are for iOS. "Universal" means the games run on both iPad and iPhone/iPod Touch. -Jay]

But it would be nice to see more Android games in your Mobile Mondays

[Sigh. We cover Android games when we find good ones to feature. If you know of any please submit them. Fact is, there are far more good games being developed for iOS. Get an iPhone if you want to play good, innovative games on your phone. -Jay]
