Mobile Monday

JohnBReally, all you need to know about this edition of Mobile Monday is that is contains both bears and beards. There might be some other stuff to look at, but it's totally overshadowed by the sheer awesomeness of those two nearly identical nouns.

room2-p.gifMake room for The Room 2 - Fireproof Games has been busy. Not only did the team's point-and-click puzzle game The Room win Best Mobile Puzzle in our Best of 2012 voting, it also managed to spread from iPad to iPhone to Android in just a few months' time. Even better, though, is the sequel is well under way and should be released sometime this autumn! In the meantime, go take a gander at our walkthrough and review for The Room, just to make sure you're ready.

nimbleq-p.gifNimble Quest goes Android - Gleefully filed under the "well that was quick!" category, Nimble Quest has already made its way from iOS to Android. The latest release from Pocket Planes developer NimbleBit combines a classic snake-like experience with an RPG, focusing on quick reflexes and clever combat choices. Check out our Nimble Quest review for the full scoop!

epicpirate-p.gifEpic Copy Story? - Oh look, a new Kairosoft game! Right? Well, not so much. A new game called Epic Pirates Story borrows some serious mojo from some of Kairosoft's games, going so far as to adopt a "strikingly similar" visual style along with a similar naming convention as Epic Astro Story. Now, nobody owns the patent on cute isometric pixel art or the word "epic", but it does seem a bit eerie that two simulation games from separate companies share so much alike. Right? Right. Try out the free version of the game for yourself, see if it crosses the line in your book.

fist-p.gifBears. Lumberjacks. Beards. - Here's all you need to know about Fist of Awesome: it's made by a studio called I Fight Bears. Their tagline is "Games for people with beards". In this game, you are a lumberjack. You punch bears. You dropkick dinosaurs. You have a mean uppercut. We're struggling to find something not to like about this entire situation but utterly failing. That's good, because Fist of Awesome is coming this spring to iOS and Android. And there's a trailer.

Epic Pirate Story started as an April Fools' Day announcement on the kairospot.net forums a year or two back. It is a copy of the style, definitely but it is a lot closer to an homage than a theft.
