Mobile Monday

JohnBAccording to this week's Mobile Monday, horses wear tuxedos, pigs are sinister, and pirates are a thing of nightmares. Unless you live your life by the Everything I Know I Learned from Video Games motto, your world probably isn't affected by this too much. Now, go back to stacking blocks in neat patterns. Just, you know, don't put them in groups of three or more...

yearwalk-p.jpgSimogo teases new iOS game - Mobile developer Simogo has been on a roll these last few years, creating games like Beat Sneak Bandit and Bumpy Road. The team recently unveiled its upcoming release: Year Walk, a 2D first person adventure game set in the cold woods of 19th century Sweden. The tone is much darker and more surreal than the studio's previous releases, but after checking out the screenshots and video, we're excited (in a cautious, please-don't-eat-me-forest-horse-ghost kind of way) to see more!

kingofdragonpass2.jpgKing of Dragon Pass gets iPad update - This phenomenal story-centric retro game has had a fantastic resurgence thanks to services like the iTunes App Store and GOG.com. In late 2011, King of Dragon Pass was released for iPhone, porting over the intricate storylines and choice-based gameplay for modern touch screen gamers to devour. Then, just a few weeks ago, the game was packaged up and released for PC by GOG.com. And now, King of Dragon Pass has received another update, shifting the interface around and improving the artwork to make it suitable for iPad. It's like taking part in an epic narrative where everything that happens is a result of your actions, something surprisingly few modern games have managed to accomplish by comparison.

nightmares-p.jpgNightmares from the Deep goes mobile - Hey, we like cursed pirate-related nightmares from below the sea just as much as the next casual gamer. Are you questioning our devotion? Good, didn't think so. If you, too, have a hankering for a dark and engrossing hidden object adventure game on your iOS device, Artifex Mundi has recently ported Nightmares from the Deep: The Cursed Heart over to the touch screen market. Lots of gameplay variety, some great mini-games to enjoy, and there's even an undead dwarf recounting the details of an unlikely romance. Intriguing, yes? Yes!

badpiggies-p.jpgAngry Birds to Bad Piggies - This week's lesson: pigs are apparently the worst creatures ever. According to Angry Birds creator Rovio, that is. The team finally let loose some official details about the upcoming Angry Birds spin-off, titled Bad Piggies, which strands the swine on an island and challenges you to build contraptions to help them reach the delicious eggs. Because that's all pigs eat, right? Right.
