Mobile Monday

JohnBGames, bundles of games, and devices that grant you access to more games. If we've done the math correctly, that's about four games (margin of error is +/-100).

shapejam-p.gifShape Jam (iOS/Android, free) - Mmm, delicious puzzle games that hurt the brain. Shape Jam plays on your brain's filtering and pattern recognition abilities in a very simple but challenging way. You're given groups of colored shapes, each of which has a number of smaller shapes displayed on the inside. Your job is to find the matches, which can be a number of different combinations. For example, three shapes of the same color, same number of smaller shapes, and unique smaller shapes counts as a match. Two of one color is a no-go, no matter how you mix them up. It's a very challenging concept in a brain teaser sort of way, and definitely one to check out if you enjoy good logic puzzles.

bundles.gifAndroid game bundles! - It's rare to see indie bundles containing games for mobile devices, but right now there are at least two good ones available on ye interwebs. The Humble Mobile Bundle 3 and ikoid are each offering a handful of Android games for a pay-what-you-want and set minimal price respectively. Get games like Kingdom Rush, rymdkapsel, They Need to Be Fed, Ridiculous Fishing and several more, all for small price tags well below the standard rate. Now go get some gaming done before the bundles close!

diceplus.gifDICE+ makes dice rolling digital - Adding a little physicality to digital games, DICE+ is a Bluetooth-connected accessory designed for iOS and Android devices that allows you to roll a die in the real world and see the results in a game. There are about a dozen compatible titles released or in the works, ranging from simple board games to more creative ventures, and all of them operate using the dice rolling device along with simple screen touches. It's a great way to get family members in on some tablet gaming action, and because everybody knows how to roll dice, even non-techies have a place at this digital table. DICE+ may have limited use since it requires a physical accessory and local players, but once you assemble the parts it ends up being quite a bit of fun. Especially when you win! Read more about DICE+ on the official website.

I love the concept of a physical dice for use with digital games. Wonder if DICE+ could be compatible with online gaming?

So Shape Jam is basically the card game Set, but in pretty, mobile form? I can live with that.

Hoverboard> Dora Webcomic xkcd has been around for over a decade, and to celebrate the release of his new book, creator Randall Munroe has created a very simple piece of platforming interactive art. But venture beyond the small playing field, and you'll find a much bigger world than you thought that's full of surprises.  ...
Rock 'n' Roll Escape> Dora Pine Studio serves up a short but rock-worthy escape in your browser or free on iOS and Android as you try to find your way out of a cozy, abandoned little concert venue. But with a soundtrack this catchy, will you be able to resist air-guitaring long enough to escape?  ...
Weekday Escape N°103> Dora This week on Weekday Escape! no1game gets inside your computer and asks if you WANT TO PLAY A GAME? (Maybe you should call Matthew Broderick?) MayMay isn't letting you go anywhere until you get these snails out of the yard. And Vitamin Hana turns you right 'round baby, right 'round.  ...
Supermuzhik> Tricky Supermuzhik is an arcade-action sorta-shooter game by Aimar where the titular hero proves to be much better at "defeating evil" than "protecting the innocent", as he uses his telekinetic vision to fling the latter into the former. Viscerally enjoyable in its destruction, even if its difficulty takes a surprise leap about a third of the way in.  ...
