Mobile Monday

JohnBSo. Many. Games! A full roster for this edition of Mobile Monday, catching up on several releases over the last few weeks that brought some popular browser/downloadable games to the mobile platform.

theblockscometh.gifThe Blocks Cometh - After a crummy imitator pushed a fake version of the game to the App Store, the real version of The Blocks Cometh has arrived! Really heavy things fall from the top of the screen, slowly stacking on the floor below. You're sorta trapped down there, too, and must constantly climb higher in order to stay alive. Fortunately it's not all about avoiding things, as you do have the ability to punch and destroy blocks in your way.

hurdleturtle.gifHurdle Turtle - A very simple game that's so much fun, you just might grin. All you do in this pixel-filled game is walk from left to right on a track. Playing as one of several unlockable turtle characters, you must avoid brick walls and leap over hurdles in your way. The farther you go, the faster you walk, making things more difficult to evade as time goes by. You'll gain access to new tracks after traveling a certain distance, and the excellent chiptune soundtrack will also keep you engaged. Hurdle Turtle is just one of those crazy little games that just works.

karoshi-iphone.gifKaroshi - Everybody's favorite Suicide Salaryman has made his way to iTunes, providing the same puzzle platform experience from previous installments on the touch screen. Your job is to kill yourself. You do this by trapping yourself in inescapable situations, jumping into spikes, lighting yourself on fire, and otherwise manipulating the game environment to summon Death. If you can overlook the always-wonky touch screen controls attempting to emulate physical buttons, the game provides a lot of hilarious and challenging moments!

entanglement-iphone.gifEntanglement - Have as much fun as we did with the path-puzzle browser game Entanglement? How's about some more, then?! All you have to do is create an unbroken path what weaves around the grid without bumping into the border. Rotate and swap hexagons with the touch screen to accomplish this, building a single path one piece at a time. The controls are a bit less than intuitive, but you adapt quickly enough. The extra modes and boards more than make up for the awkward touch-only interface, especially when you get a load of Gold Rush!

potocabenga.gifPoto & Cabenga - Hey, remember that spacebar-happy browser game we reviewed in April 2010? Poto & Cabenga are now back with their iPhone debut, and this version's got a few bonuses to really flesh out the experience. Our heroes are separated by a nasty dragon thing, and in order to get them to safety, you must control both characters at the same time. Tapping the screen causes both characters to jump, while holding the screen makes the bottom guy dash. Doing nothing causes the top character to run. Keep an eye on both screens and avoid any sort of dangers that scroll your way. When original mode has been conquered, check out Neverending to keep the fun galloping.

NOTE: Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info.
