Mobile Monday №104
Hey there Android gamers! Miss me? Well fear no more, as I, the Android Game Finding Android have returned with more games for the mobile scene! The Marketplace has enjoyed a healthy surge of content in the last month or so, and I have poked and prodded my robotic nose through those releases to find the best of the best so I can share them with you. Now, since I'm sharing something, will you share that ice cream sandwich with me?

Spaghetti and Marshmallows - While it may not be a culinary fad anytime soon, Spaghetti and Marshmallows makes an excellent free-form physics game! The goal is to build a relatively stable structure out of uncooked spaghetti sticks and bits of marshmallows. Swipe to create the sticks, then tap to stick a fluffy marshmallow on the end, attaching other pieces of spaghetti to the gooey bits. Reach high enough to support marshmallows in the marked circles and you'll get to continue to the next stage. Much more difficult than it sounds, and much more entertaining than it should be allowed to be! The free version of Spaghetti Marshmallows is available by scanning the QR code to the right.
Genetics - A new take on the "mix a bunch of elements together to make new things" genre that's been gradually taking hold since Doodle God appeared on the scene. Instead of putting fire and water together, here you're making new animal species by analyzing "genes" present in individual icons. For example, you can make a scorpion by mixing a rat (which has a tail) and an ant (which is an arthropod). It's a little more abstract than base elements, and the interface could use some work, but once you get the hang of it, you're in for 256 unique species and a whole lot of surprises.
Atomic Bomber - Here's a simple idea: bomb the bad guys driving around below, destroy their buildings, and get a powerful weapon as a prize. Your plane flies around in the sky, wrapping around the sides of the screen and automatically turning down when it reaches the top. Tap the screen to change directions, and tap the bomb icon to fire away. Bombs arc using natural physics, so you have to aim based on where your enemies will be when the bomb hits as well as your direction in the skies. Surprisingly tactical in nature, and the weapon upgrades are a... "blast"... to use. The free version of Atomic Bomber is available via the right side QR code.
