Mobile Monday

JohnBSweet, sweet nostalgia is the theme for this week's Mobile Monday, as two (arguably all three) of our games bank on invoking that rosey feeling of reliving our past in modern form. A Star Wars game that's actually good? Check. Intellivision? DOUBLE CHECK!

starwarscantina.jpgStar Wars: Cantina - Wait, what? A Star Wars... time management game? Sounds odd at first, but Star Wars: Cantina is superbly done with some fantastic artwork and game design. Think Cake Mania meets the Mos Eisley Cantina and you've got a great idea of what to expect. Deliver drinks to recognizable Star Wars stock characters, earn your cash, tap your food to the familiar background tunes. A surprisingly good game!

intellivision.gifVH1 Classic Presents: Intellivision - Here's a blast from the past. Maybe so far in the past some readers weren't even born. Several classics of early console gaming are now on iPhone, including Astrosmash, Chip Shot Golf, Skiing, Thunder Castle, and Night Stalker. Controls are well-implemented for a physical controller to touch screen transition, and these old games make the trip to new fangled gizmos quite well. Worth checking out for the nostalgia alone!

fallingsands2.jpgFalling Sands and Falling Sands 2 - Of the handful of games on the iTunes App Store that emulate the famous Sand Sand Sand, Falling Sands and its sequel seem to do the best job. Unfortunately they don't get everything right at the same time, leaving you caught between two halves of one game. The first Falling Sands features a ton of elements to play around with, but some of the physics are questionable, and the game has been known to crash. The sequel, on the other hand, looks and plays much better, but for some reason, there are a pitiful few elements to play around with. Combine these games into one and you've got a near-perfect sandbox playground, otherwise it's up to you to decide which one floats your sandy boat the best. Fortunately, Falling Sands Free and Falling Sands 2 Free are both, well, free, so you can try them out without dropping any cash.
