Mobile Monday

JohnBIt's an Android love party! As the free Google-made mobile OS turns four years old, several novel casual games make their way to the Google Play store, including one of our all-time favorites, Pocket Planes! And since the green robot is doing so well, developers are working to release even more ports and original games, ensuring you'll never use your phone for phone calls (whatever those are).

questlord-p.gifQuestLord still looks awesome - If olden games like Eye of the Beholder and Bard's Tale have always gotten your blood flowing and recent releases like Legend of Grimrock give you reason to live, you probably ask yourself every day "Why aren't there more retro-inspired first person RPGs?" Well now! QuestLord from Eric Kinkead is coming to save your mobile device, providing turn-based role playing with a too-awesome pixel art style and easy touch-based controls. We're salivating over this game ourselves and can't wait for it to reach the iTunes App Store, so keep an eye out for more gushing news as soon as it hits!

pocketplanes-p.gifPocket Planes on Android - Hey, ever heard of a little NimbleBit game called Pocket Planes? It's only the most crazy-captivating simulation ever released in the history of everything. We reviewed it, we wrote a guide for it, we even set up a trading post for it. And now, we're telling you to pick it up for Android, because it's free, it's fun, and it's simply sublime.

darknebula.jpgDark Nebula goes Android - The Dark Nebula games have long been at home on iOS devices, but Free Lunch Design is now in the process of bringing both games over to Android. In fact, the first episode is already available, and the second will be released within the next few months! In case you're unfamiliar, the Dark Nebula series will make you re-think tilt control arcade games, as it features some amazing level design along with sci-fi visuals that look fantastic on the mobile screen. It's more like an adventure meets a precise motion game, making it captivating for short sessions as well as in the long run.

superhexagon.jpgSuper Hexagon to spread from iOS - Not so very long ago, Terry Cavanagh released Super Hexagon for iOS devices. The game is punishingly difficult, featuring arcade levels that practically aim to make you fail. But we love it, thousands of other mobile games love it, and so it has been decided this is a good thing. Another good thing is that Terry plans to bring the game to both Android and BlackBerry devices! Hey, why not, right? Everybody needs a reason to get angry at their phones. No word on when this transformation will take place, but we'll definitely keep an eye out!
