Mobile Monday

JohnBHow tiny is your tower? Is it one bit big, or even bigger? Could you cram it into a crate, or are you not ninja enough? Before you even attempt it, be sure to do a little stretching to make your bits more nimble.

tinytower.gifTiny Tower (universal) - NimbleBit releases another hit with Tiny Tower, and it is possibly the best, least-nag-filled freemium game on the App Store! Best of Casual Gameplay 2011Manage the creation and staffing of every floor of your pixel tower. Choose from a number of floor types (residential, commercial, service, etc.) and wait in real-time while the construction is complete. When your floor is ready, staff it with one of your bitizens, matching each person's strengths with that type of shop. The only real maintenance you have to do is restocking shelves, all of which is done by choosing between items that range from a few minutes to an hour or so to obtain, then just make sure you have a good mix of floors available. You can opt to spend real cash to buy in-game towerbux to speed things up, but this is one game that plays remarkably well without using your own money.

1bitninja.gif1-bit Ninja (universal) - Remember when we had that grand argument about 2D vs. 3D? Me neither, but 1-bit Ninja decided to solve the issue by being both two dimensional and three dimensional at the same time! This retro-looking platform game plays out on a flat plane and allows you to run to the right, collect bits (coins), potions and the like, all while avoiding enemies and hunting for secrets. To find said secrets, you'll need to use 1-bit Ninja's secret trick: perspective changing! Simply drag the top of the screen to tilt the game world to the side, taking a 3D look at your surroundings. Often, you'll find passageways you couldn't have seen before in this view, making frequent "stop and look" sessions a must!

konascrate.gifKona's Crate (iPhone/iPod Touch, iPad; Android) - Gotta deliver the crate to the chief! Too bad it's on a wobbly platform controlled by independent jet boosters that have only two positions: off, and OMGFAST. Move the crate-toting platform by firing these jets with your left and right hands, tilting and shoving yourself through levels as best you can. Be prepared to crash about a dozen times before you get the hang of things, but fortunately Kona's Crate isn't too picky about how you get the crate to the chief. Just as long as it's there, you're good to go! A smart arcade game that gets better as the levels go by! Kona's Crate HD for iPad is also available, as well as Kona's Crate and a Lite version for Android phones/tablets.

I love Tiny Tower. The ingame Towerbux is balanced just right between hard to get and obtainable.

The elevators are expensive enough that they are obtainable with a little patience, but enough that you might want to pay for it with real cash.

The little Bitbook is hilarious too.

I had Tiny Tower on my iPad for a little while. I ended up deleting it because I got sick of being bugged to restock something every few minutes.
