Tiny Games

JohnBTiny Games is a collection of quirky diversions aimed at getting you or a bunch of people to do strange things. It uses situational questions and commands and suggests activities based on your location, mood, etc. Think of it as the ultimate collection of road trip games, expanded to cover most of the real world. The "games" aren't games in and of themselves, but you'll be surprised how much fun a competitive "I'm crushing your head" can be.

Tiny GamesEach game is designed to help you kill time while waiting for the bus, standing in line at the post office, or just puttering around home. You start by telling Tiny Games where you're located (home, at a bar, on a walk, etc.), then picking a sub-location (in your living room), followed by number of players. You'll then answer a few quick questions so Tiny Games can choose a diversion to entertain you. For example, the alphabet game is an at-home game that gives you an on-screen spinner. Give it a whirl, and when it stops you have to name an object in the direction it's pointing starting with the first letter of the alphabet. Spin again, next letter of the alphabet, all the way until you hit Q and realize you don't have a map of Quebec on your wall anymore.

A lot of the things in Tiny Games may seem a little too simple, but once you get the app out in public or with a bunch of people, the fun really begins. It's a very well-designed game that's attractive and easy to navigate. The free download includes home games for several players, and you can unlock additional location packs via in-app purchase. They're a little pricey, but if your next party starts to go stale, this might be a cheaper (and safer, cleaner) alternative than fermented liquid beverages.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPad 3. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
