Mobile Monday №191
Slippery slopes and gyroscopes! Diary pages and dinosaurs on rages! More of our collectively beloved games from various platforms are making their way to the mobile scene, and we're as pleased as unlimited data plans (remember those?) to have them aboard!
Rain-Slick what now? - Appeasing more of our ubiquitous mobile envy, another great downloadable game has finally made its way to portable devices. Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness: Episode Three from Zeboyd Games has all the awesomeness of a retro RPG along with the sweet sweet fun the Penny Arcade games (and comics) are known for. Even sweeter is the fact that both Android and iOS versions have been released, and they play beautifully on those shiny touch screens!
GYRO gets a plus, goes iOS - We were more than happy to heap praise upon the stylish mobile arcade game GYRO when we reviewed it in late August. The only drawback was that it was only for Android devices, leaving iOS users to sit and stare longingly. That issue has been rectified with the release of GYRO+, offering the same color-based arcade/puzzle gameplay along with a few upgrades. It's a beautifully illustrated game with simple but engaging gameplay, so you owe it to yourself to give it a shot! Go ahead!
Grace loves Android - Originally featured in 2010 when it was released as a browser game, the interactive narrative Grace's Diary from Coffee Dog Games has started spreading its wings to land on its first mobile platform via the Amazon Appstore for Android. If you're in the mood for a a delicately emotional and immensely moving experience, you should definitely give this one a try. It's free no matter which platform you play it on!
