Mobile Monday

JohnBWowee wow wow! It's a new year! Erm... now what? Isn't something supposed to happen now? Lightning bolts? Umm... cake? How about some nice puzzle games? Ok, that's cool, we'll do that!

geared2.gifGeared 2! - It's about time! Back in 2009, a puzzle game called Geared was released for iPhone. Now, its sequel appears and shows up the original in almost every way, introducing loads of new puzzles, an improved visual style, tinkered gameplay, and... a hamster! Geared 2! is all about dropping gears from a menu bar onto the screen. One gear is already turning, another is not. Connect the two sides and you're ready to move on. Very difficult at times, as the gears are free-floating and not confined to a grid, but highly satisfying once you get it right!

kubrick.gifKubrick - A great take on the physics puzzle genre, Kubrick stars an immobile little cube with a lot of neat powers. Your goal is to make it to the end of the level, hopefully collecting a few things along the way. To navigate the world, tap an item from your menu bar to activate it, then control the cube by tilting your iPhone. So, for example, if you turn on wheels, suddenly you can roll. Flip on the propeller and you can hover for a bit. Get the picture? Good! Now you're ready to have an amazing time solving puzzles. The free Kubrick Lite is also available.

mindwall.gifMind Wall - From the same mind that brought us Dungeon Scroll, Mind Wall is a puzzle game that's as simple as fitting blocks through a wall. A mass of cubes slowly zooms into view. Look at the shape outlined in the top right corner, then tap any one block in the wall to remove it, the goal being to open a space large enough to fit the target shape. Succeed, and you move on. Fail, and you don't. Unlockable game modes give you an extra incentive to move on, but the real draw is the game's immense challenge. You'd never think something like this could be so difficult!

Wondering, are you planning to provide a mobile view for jayisgames? At least if I view the site on my Android I get the normal webview with the site graphics and all, not so mobile view friendly, resulting in a lot of the typical smartphone user expanding index finger and thumb motion.

Ditto on fuzzyface's request! My work blocks pretty much every vaguely gaming site there is and it's currently too awkward to read JIG on my iPhone. A mobile version would be awesome!

Yes, please! A mobile view would be nice.

Liking Kubrik, nice to see a game trying to do something a bit different.

Do I have to have an Iphone or something to play Mindwall? Can't they make it for computers?
