Mobile Monday

JohnBIf you're looking for a few wild distractions, allow us to point to your left, where you'll see a tricycle riding a bear eating a hotdog. The bear isn't eating the hotdog, the tricycle is. And it's covered in mustard. The bear, not the hotdog. Also, four unique mobile games representing four different genres, each capable of stealing hours of your life away!

kingspath.gifThe King's Path (iPhone/iPod Touch, iPad) - Meet your new favorite tower defense game! The King's Path was created by Elliot Pace, author of the browser game Defend Your Nuts. It draws inspiration from a number of game types, including old school RPGs, defense games, and strategy games. Answer a few questions before the game begins to determine skill bonuses you get, then hop on in. Head out to battle and select your troops, ranging from a bomb-throwing pirate to mages, warriors, witches and archers, each with his or her own strength and weakness on the battlefield. Waves of enemies approach you, but by hiring people to stand near the path, you can clear them out before they reach the other side. Earn gold and skill points in battle, then use them to upgrade everything between fights, including skills that affect damage, gold, experience, and more. Extremely enjoyable on all fronts, and it's a wonderful change of pace to see different game types mixed in this manner. The King's Path HD for iPad is also available.

catball.gifCatball Eats it All (universal) - So, did someone fall asleep in front of an open pack of markers or something? Catball Eats it All is exactly as the name states, putting you in control of a cat that is really a ball that rolls around eating it all. Nom down teddy bears, socks, and other small items, then grow a bit larger and scarf bigger things. Eventually, you'll devour the entire stage, allowing you to move on to bigger, more intricate, and more bizarre levels. The artwork was hand-drawn and looks phenomenal, and while the gameplay itself is a bit thin, it's undeniably fun to roll around and experience the surrealness that is Catball!

mroops.gifMr.Oops!! (universal) - From the team behind Mr.Aaah!!, Mr.Ninja, and Do Do EGG!, Mr.Oops!! is yet another infinitely-playable quick-fire arcade game! This time around, the so-named Mr. Oops is standing on a grid, dancing like he just don't care. Then, rocks (or, later, cannon balls or lasers) start to roll from the sides of the screen, indicated by the flashing arrows. Swipe the screen to move Mr. Oops to a safe spot on the grid, then repeat wave after wave. As you play, you unlock newer, faster, harder levels to play. Just as tempting to fire up as the studio's other releases, and just as awesome to play!

judgedreddzombies.gifJudge Dredd vs. Zombies (universal) - What a title, right? Just as the name implies, this dual stick shooter is filled with lots and lots of guns, ammunition, and general bad dudeness in the form of Judge Dredd disposing of enemies left and right. Move through each level, collecting badges and taking out zombies with your chosen set of weapons and upgrades. Shockingly, the auto-aim doesn't ruin the challenge, but instead it allows you to focus on movement and reloading at opportune times. It may not reinvent the mobile shooter, but it's loads of carnage and plenty of wild fun for a nice price tag.

NOTE: Games noted as 'universal' have been designed for iPod Touch, iPad, and iPhone devices alike. Any game not listed for iPad will work on the system, but native full screen will not be present. 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.

Regarding the screenshot of The King's Path: Ooh, are The Beatles in this game? I don't see the fab four anywhere! :p

I'm really disappointed with The King's Path--doesn't open at all on iPod touch. How does one go about getting a refund on a game like that?
