Mobile Monday

JohnBMore Android games to keep you busy so you don't have to answer those pesky phone calls/text messages! The standout title this week is, by far, the creative puzzle game Domino Run. If you only try one of the games below, give it a shot. You won't regret it!

dominorun.gifDomino Run - Dominos as gaming devices are centuries old, but rarely do you see them used in this manner. Domino Run is a physics puzzle game that challenges you to knock over a target domino by rearranging other dominos around the screen. Pick up and place pieces ranging from normal dominos to standing, rebounding dominos, cloning dominos, and many more. When everything's set and ready, tap the starting piece, choose the direction to tilt it, and watch everything fall! A superb idea that's executed quite well, although the lack of a true zoom feature and a speed toggle hamper the interface to a certain extent. The free Domino Run Lite is also available.

diversion.gifDiversion - This little diversion happens to provide a bit more than it promises. A running/jumping game along the lines of Canabalt, Diversion takes place in a pseudo-3D world where you must collect gems while avoiding spikes, chasms, zip-lines, slides, ledges, holes, buttons, spiderbots, bouncer bombs, water, laser walls, and, well, lots, lots more. There are over 150 unlockable characters to play (!) with plenty of stage variety and challenges to overcome. Simple action but loads of gameplay possibilities, exactly what we like in our mobile games! From Ezone, creator of the Sling series of browser games.

slitherlink-android.gifSlitherlink - Honestly, it's tough to find a good logic puzzle game on mobile devices. They're common, for sure, but they're usually clunky, feature poor puzzles, have terrible interfaces, or just look like they've been trampled by a herd of elephants who ran through a field of paint. Fortunately, this Slitherlink is exactly the opposite of all that, featuring a tidy interface, plenty of puzzles, and controls that are second only to pencil and paper. Your goal, as with any slitherlink game, is to follow the number clues and draw an unbroken loop surrounding the spaces on the grid. Draw and mark lines with simple taps, and refresh your memory on how to play if you're so inclined. Slitherlink Free is also available.

NOTE: 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. Games have been confirmed to run on Android 2.2 on an HTC Incredible.

Domino Run seems a lot like the amazing Pushover back from when Amigas ruled the earth. Shame I don't have an Android phone :(

From your description, I think Domino Run is almost identical to an old DOS game called Pushover. I have it emulated on my laptop.
