Mobile Monday №240
A fine mixture of fruit and candy (and maps?) on this edition of Mobile Monday. In case you wanted to help a little friend eat plums, we've got your fix. If it's candy you desire, put on your costume and go on a mobile quest from DoubleFine!
Who likes plums? Harry, of course. - Have you ever played one of those Fantastic Contraption physics building games and thought "Yeah, this is basically the most fun type of game ever.", If so, our pal Harry's got some great things in store for you. Harry Likes Plums is an upcoming iOS game stuffed with contraption-building puzzles and layered with a fine mist of humor. Harry wants the plums, but he can't quite reach them. The only solution is to build a machine (of sorts) to get him from Point A to Point Plum. Couple the creative gameplay solutions with some of the most adorable art this side of a turtle eating a strawberry and you've got a mobile game you won't be able to take your hands off of. Look for Harry Likes Plums in November!
Costume Quest hits iOS - Halloween isn't too far away, so you'll want to pre-prepare to make sure you're in the proper state of mind. The quirky, lighthearted and utterly enjoyable DoubleFine release Costume Quest has worked its way from consoles/PC to the mobile scene, and it made the transition quite well. The game plays like your typical turn-based RPG. You'll explore areas and get in fights with monsters, which is where things get a bit weird. Throughout the game you'll find different components that will ultimately unlock new costumes to wear. Why is this important? Well, anytime you enter battle your apple-cheeked youngster literally transforms into the embodiment of the costume they're wearing, complete with special abilities. Over-the-top epic, you might say.
Simogo rides again with Device 6 - Simogo's games always have something special about them (ahem, Year Walk or Beat Sneak Bandits, anyone?). The team's upcoming Device 6 is an innovative and surreal game that combines elements of... well, lots of different elements! It's part game part literature, part geographical puzzle and part novella. It's all intriguing, though, and the release this October 17th couldn't come soon enough! Check out the trailer for a little teaser.
