Mobile Monday

JohnBA pocket-sized family, one of the world's most ambitious RPGs stuffed into a smaller package, and a remade Final Fantasy game worming its way into the mobile market. It's all kind of amazing until you realize we're living in the super-futuristic year of 2012!

vf2-p.gifVirtual Families in ur poket LOL - Just in case you missed it, Last Day of Work released a sequel to Virtual Families over the weekend, and for the time being it just happens to be a mobile exclusive! Virtual Families 2: Our Dream House pulls in the same casual simulation gameplay we've grown to adore from the Virtual Villagers company, allowing you to manage and customize your family's life and home in so many neat ways. Virtual Families 2 gives you a lot more control compared to the original, and the touch screen controls are a natural fit!

bgee-p.gifBaldur's Gate Enhanced finally goes mobile - A very long time in the making, Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition finally made its way to the Windows platform earlier this month. And now it's available for iPad, too! A remake and update of the classic RPG Baldur's Gate, expect more of the same gameplay and storylines from the original, only, you know, enhanced. And with more characters, more content, and complete touch screen integration, of course. We liked the game so much we even forced Dora to review it, so you know it's gotta be good!

ff4-p.gifFinal Fantasy more! - So, another Final Fantasy game is coming to iOS this year. Final Fantasy 4 (the 3D Nintendo DS remake version) has just been confirmed for a simultaneous iPhone and iPad release on December 20. The Android version is expected sometime in 2013.
While we may not be a fan of the Square Enix pricing structure, we are fans of Final Fantasy, and since this port was surprisingly well done, complete with bonus content and a fresh translation, it makes it a little more appealing.

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!

One thing to point out for you fine folks trying to choose between iOS and PC for Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition is that despite being half price, the iOS version also requires you to purchase two of the new NPCs and I believe also the Black Pits add-on separately, whereas the PC version already includes them. Also, please be aware that though the iTunes page SAYS it works with all iPads in the sidebar technical specs, the game's actual description states that it's only for iPad 2 and above, with original iPad support coming later. :) The more you know!
