Mobile Monday

JohnBI promised myself I wouldn't make this introduction all about the hyper-addictive sequel to the hyper-addictive loot gathering game I Dig It. But I did anyway. To be honest, when I made that promise, I secretly knew I was joking with myself.

idigit2.jpgI Dig It Expeditions - I raved about I Dig It when it was first released, and now I'm fully prepared to rave about the sequel! The loot-based digging game is back and completely captivating all over again. Instead of digging in the farm's backyard, now you're traveling around the world to discover tons of new treasure and complete a variety of new challenges. Dig your way below the surface in search of valuables, then haul them back to the light and sell them for cash. Use the money to upgrade your machine with a faster drill, larger fuel tank or cargo hold, better radar, etc., allowing you to dig deeper and discover even more valuable loot. The interface has been revamped based on player feedback, allowing better access to information (such as the new inventory and map screens), and a number of small improvements have been made for better playability. You'll also have to contend with hazards such as pockets of methane gas, although you can often use them to your great advantage. Expect around ten hours of gameplay, including new missions, challenges and an irresistible freeplay mode. Don't let your digging addiction suffer, I Dig It Expeditions is here to help.

auditorium-iphone.jpgAuditorium - An interactive aural experience, Auditorium is an iPhone port of the browser game released earlier this year (the preview build, released in 2008, was chosen as our Best Browser-Based Puzzle Game of the year). Your goal is to create a convergence of light, color and music by guiding waves of sound to "fill" bars located around the screen. You do so by manipulating orbs that can attract or repel the flow to various degrees. The touch controls are a perfect fit for a game like this, and don't forget to plug in headphones for an even better experience. The free Auditorium Lite is also available.

crossfingers.jpgCross Fingers - From Mobigame, makers of EDGE, comes a simple and stylish puzzle game of the tangram variety. Your goal is to complete the shape shown somewhere on the screen. To do that, however, you'll need to slide geometric shapes around, contending with solid walls, immovable obstacles, and other puzzle pieces as you slowly work towards your goal. It's a bit like a cross between a sliding puzzle and a tangram, and it plays like a dream.

Just to let you know your I Dig It Expeditions link has a .jpg in the href so it's giving a 404.

Are you planning on featuring Android games anytime soon?

Do any good Android games even exist? I haven't heard of any. And it seems game developers aren't too keen on the platform either. [Source]
