Mobile Monday №193
Beginning your weekly journey to continued financial/scholastic success, might we suggest you take a peek at what games are currently brewing for your future enjoyment? Or perhaps have already been brewed for your present enjoyment? They've got nothing to do with actual brewing, just space and wooden blocks and stuff, which is better.
illo aims to be coolest game ever - An action/puzzle game concept in the works by Raylight, illo is a gorgeous game that utilizes a bit of wind, a bit of physics, and a bigger bit of creativity. The game aims for a minimalist design that can be played and enjoyed by anyone, provided their mobile device has the necessary equipment (touch screen, tilt sensor, microphone). You'll have to check out the teaser videos to get an idea of what the game will be like, but the team is still tight-lipped about the whole thing. Color us intrigued, though!
Waking Mars update brings more of everything - Even on a buttonless mobile device, you've got to admit a metroidvania game set in space is an awesome idea. We featured Tiger Style Games' Waking Mars earlier this year and absolutely loved it, and just recently the team pushed out an update that adds full voice acting for all of the in-game dialogue as well as various artwork improvements. Previous updates also added Retina display support as well as support for the new iPhone 5's wider screen, and since this game relies so much on visual awesomeness, those are some big improvements indeed.
Woodhead's looking a little lite - A few months ago we featured the sliding block mobile puzzle game Woodhead. A few moments ago we started a paragraph that's going to tell you the game has now been updated to include a bunch of brand new puzzles! Also, in case you were ever on the fence about trying the game, a free lite version is now available, letting you jump in without, you know, really jumping in. Seriously, go check this game out. You won't regret it!
