Mobile Monday

JohnBSometimes the iTunes App Store is nothing but disappointing. Sometimes it's filled with a tolerable amount of playable games. Other times there are so many great things to choose from you kinda flip out and cry a little bit. This is one of the good weeks, so prepare to bawl.

kometen.jpgKometen - Oh. My. Stars. This game is grand. You're a comet and you are exploring the galaxy. Tap a planet and you start to orbit it. Swipe the screen to let go and fly across the black sky. Eat floating space debris and you'll slowly build a "warp" meter that allows you to cover a great deal of distance in a short time. Your only goal is to check out the universe and see what's out there, and boy will you have a great time doing it. The artwork (by Niklas Åkerblad) for this game is nothing short of phenomenal, and the whole experience is simply marvelous. Fun fact: Kometen was designed by Erik Svedäng, creator of Blueberry Garden.

phoenixspirit.jpgPhoenix Spirit - If Super Metroid starred a magical flying squirrel, it would be this game. Every bit as enchanting as the idea sounds, Phoenix Spirit is an exploration-based "shooter" (it's not really a shooter, but it controls similar to one) where you roam the forest searching for the cause of Mother Tree's illness. You'll unlock new areas and gain access to new abilities as you play, and the free-form exploration experience is heightened by the fact that you can fly in any direction. A beautiful game that draws you in right from the start.

pebblejump.jpgPebble Jump - Oh, thank you for existing, simplicity! Pebble Jump's gameplay can be summarized with two words: pebble, jump. Each grid arrangement features some empty slots, a star slot, and a handful of pebbles. The stones can only be moved by jumping over other stones, and when a pebble has been leaped over, it disappears. Your goal is to eliminate all of the pieces and have the last stone end up on the star slot. Tons of stages with three difficulty levels keep you jumping pebbles for a very long time. Pebble Jump Free is also available.

transylvania.gifTransylvania Adventure - Hey there retro gamer, whacha doin'? Hankering to play an old Apple ][ game released in 1982? Wow, what a coincidence, because that's exactly what Transylvania is! A graphical text adventure, you are on a quest to rescue Princess Sabrina from the desolate countryside. Unfortunately there's a vampire, a werewolf, a goblin, a witch, and an alien space ship hanging around to cause you trouble. The game is completely faithful to the original with the addition of a few sounds and a touch-friendly interface (which is surprisingly well-done). Created in collaboration with the original author, Antonio Antiochia, which gets a massive high-five of approval from us.
