Mobile Monday

JohnBIt's a week of ports, puzzles and... ok, there's no "p" word for updates, so we'll just have to say "updates" and be done with it. Developers are taking note of the popularity of mobile devices and have adjusted marketing plans to suit, releasing updated ports of downloadable games for our lovely iOS and Android machines. Welcome to the wooooorld of tomorrow!

bastion-p.jpgBastion arrives on iPad! - Catching everyone by complete surprise (except a Guild Navigator or two, perhaps), Bastion, the isometric action RPG with a dazzling story, quietly appeared on the iTunes App Store recently, though you'll need an iPad 2 or newer to play it. We couldn't heap enough praise on the game in our review, and Bastion is a perfect fit for a touch screen world. If you've got the hardware, you should definitely pick this one up!

quietplease-p.gifQuiet, Please! arrives on iOS! - The fantastic old school puzzle/adventure game from Nostatic Software made its way to Android devices back in June, but now Apple eaters can get their hands on the delightful little game. After an annoying day at school, you're ready to go home for some peace and quiet. Unfortunately, everyone in your house is making noise. Using a few items and a lot of puzzle solving finesse, you've got to figure out how to get them to shut the frak up! Our Quiet, Please! review gives the full rundown, but suffice to say, we totally love the game!

splice-p.jpgSplice arrives on iOS! - Cipher Prime makes some of our most favoritest and most puzzliest mobile and browser games of all time. Imagine our glee when the team's latest release, Splice, has worked its way to iPad! Small clumps of cells need to be moved around so they fit a pattern. All you have to do is drag them from strand to strand, creating splices with each movement. It looks fantastic on the big screened mobile device, and the puzzle game is a natural fit for touch screens. Check out our Splice review for a full account!

PuzzlejuicePuzzlejuice updated! - The iOS game Puzzlejuice combines old fashioned block matching with a word game (Tetris meets Boggle, in a sense), challenging you to practically play both genres at the exact same time. We loved it in our review earlier this year, and now that a big update has hit, there's even more to enjoy. The update includes a new Impossible Mode that, well, pretty much describes what it delivers. Blocks move faster, and you're actually punished for creating three letter words, so you'd better memorize a thesaurus or two before you dive in. In addition, Puzzlejuice is also on sale for a few days, so take advantage and get your puzzle juices stimulated!

Got some delicious info on an upcoming mobile release, current event, or other tasty news tidbit? We want to know! Send an e-mail with "Mobile Monday" in the subject line to johnb AT casualgameplay DOT com. We'll sift through the submissions and feature our favorites on a Mobile Monday article! Keen!
