It's always fun when developers play nice with different mobile platforms, isn't it? This week, we've got several well-known games crossing over from one app store to another, spreading joy and cheer and other such happy words to all!
Spell Sword moves to Android - Spell Sword, the hack and slash sidescrolling action RPG from FireFruitForge, is really rather good. And until recently it was really rather iOS-exclusive. Now the game is ready for some Android love, sporting a free price tag and delivering tons of magical cards to power up and upgrade and a whole lot of vicious monsters queuing up for a beatdown. A great casual RPG for those moments when you want all the epicness of a 40 hour narrative without spending 40 hours experiencing it!
An Android with Horn(s) - Double dose of nice news: Horn, the third person action RPG that looks like a cross between Ico and Infinity Blade 2, has split into free and paid versions in addition to transitioning over to the Google Play Android marketplace. No free version for Android users, unfortunately, but it's nice having a little taste of the game before digging into your wallet for that high price tag.
A smaller Room - Now this is something worth squeeing over. Earlier in the year we featured a fantastic Myst-like point and click game called The Room. The only real drawback to the experience was that it required an iPad to play, no small screens allowed. Now developer Fireproof games has remedied the situation with The Room Pocket, a more portable iPhone compatible version of the neat little game. It's even a free download for those of you who are curious, with a single in-app purchase unlocking the full game.
Little Things For(real)ever - A hidden object game without the adventure part shoehorned in? A hidden object game without the doom and gloom of a haunted mansion/cemetery/insane asylum? Where do we sign?! Right here with Little Things Forever, that's where. We featured Klick Tock's purely object-oriented seek and find game earlier in the year, and boy did we fall in love with it. Now there's a handy (and free) Android version available, so unless your excuse is "I own a Blackberry", it's time to start playing.
