Mobile Monday №123
This edition of Mobile Monday is so full of awesomeness, we had to evade the government agents chasing after us for breaking awesomeness laws in 42 countries! PROTIP: The old Groucho Marx glasses/moustache/nose mask doesn't work as well as it does for Bugs Bunny.
Bumpy Road (universal) - The creator of Kosmo Spin has released another cute, simple game you'll want to get your iPhone-owning paws on. While the happy little vroom car putters along above, your job is to use your finger to bulge the landscape, knocking the car up or simply nudging it closer to the items you want to collect. The physics are spot-on accurate and allow you to affect the vehicle's speed, direction, and make it jump almost anywhere you want. Several tracks are available with varying difficulty, making it the perfect physics game for just about any casual gamer looking for a cute slice of entertainment bliss!
Mighty Fin (iPhone, iPod Touch) - Similar to Tiny Wings, Mighty Fin is a great-looking physics racing game with just one method of control. Tap the screen to make Fin sink underwater. Time your moves to gather all the orbs, and release your finger to send Fin up, splashing out of the water to make some impressive leaps over boats, rocks, and other land-based obstacles. The coolest part is being able to change your costume, with unlockable outfits ranging from bunny ears to the coolest pair of sunglasses ever crafted on this Earth. work your way through each level as you master your fine, fishy controls. From Launching Pad Games, the creator of the iPhone adventure game, Scarlett and the Spark of Life.
7 Little Words (universal) - From the creator of Moxie comes another simple word game you won't be able to stop playing. 7 Little Words is sort of a simplified version of a crossword puzzle. Seven short clues are at the top of the screen alongside a number showing you how many letters the answer has. Look at the letter chunks at the bottom of the screen and see if you can assemble something of an answer. In-app purchases extend the life of the download by massive strides, allowing you to nab packs of 50 puzzles for practically nothing. A fantastic casual word game that's great to play with friends, too!
Cubetastic (iPhone, iPod Touch) - What if a Rubik's cube went all crazy and decided it needed to involve color matching like a casual puzzle game? It would be Cubetastic, and it would be brain-achingly difficult at times. But in the cool way, of course. Rotate, slide, and shift the cube so you can make a path from your orb of light to the goal. Different cube sizes, power-ups, multiple colors, and over 150 puzzles make this one an essential purchase if you're even remotely interesting in playing a logic puzzle game that will turn your hair gray. The free Cubetastic Lite is also available, as well as Cubetastic HD for iPad.
