Mobile Monday

JohnBAnybody up for some mobile teasing? A fresh batch of news for a fresh week (and month!), just enough details to get you excited for the future but not so much that you'll feel like you know it all. It's a delicate balance to taunt the internet reader, isn't it?

jetpackjoyride-p.jpgJetpack Joyride blasts to Android - We haven't made it much of a secret that Halfbrick Studios' amazing achievement-based arcade game Jetpack Joyride is about the most fun you can have on a mobile device. In fact, our review can pretty much be summed up as "omg get". Now, the formerly iOS exclusive has ridden its way to Android, carrying with it all the addicting missions, unlockables, and crazy events from the iPhone version with a gorgeously free price tag. Sound intriguing? It is, and this is the part where you go download it!

oceanhorn-p.jpgExploration-based action RPG, anyone? - Here's a phrase one can never hear too often: a gorgeous action RPG with a heavy emphasis on exploration is currently in the works for mobile devices. Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas from Cornfox & Brothers looks like an isometric Zelda game with a simple virtual control set-up to allow you to run around, throw pots, fight enemies, and the like. No firm release date has been set, but we can expect the game to hit before the year's end!

sorcery-p.jpgInteractive storytelling rides again - Earlier this year, the inkle platform introduced itself to the world with Frankenstein, a modern retelling of the classic tale with all the visual splendor and game-inspired choice-based interactivity of a mobile game. The team recently announced its next project: Steve Jackson's Sorcery!, a four-book series that places you firmly in the role of decision-making hero! Sorcery! starts its run in 2013, so you've got some time to polish off your iPad in preparation.

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!
