A little nostalgia to start your week? Mobile markets are prime real estate for ports and remakes of classic games new and old. Not only is portability a nice bonus, but oftentimes the reworked touch screen controls fit better than an old fashioned d-pad. Well, sometimes, anyway.
Make room for Pixel Room - From browser to iOS, Kotorinosu's Pixel Room is now portable! The game is an escape puzzler that's all about clarity. Pick up "items" and examine them in your inventory, use the arrows on the sides of the screen to change views, or tap on just about anything in the scene to interact with it. The closer you are to solving the stage, the clearer things will look!
Droid Arcade on iOS for free - Kittaro Games has released a follow-up of sorts to the stop-motion animated puzzle game Droidscape:Basilica. Droid Arcade is, as you probably guessed, an arcade game that focuses on speed and action. Same basic setup as the original game, only now instead of drawing lines and focusing on timing, you hop to it with real-time movement!
Final Fantasy VI on Android - Continuing Square-Enix's slow push to the mobile market, the classic SNES game that got everyone irrevocably hooked on the series is now available for Android devices. Final Fantasy VI is a careful remake of the original, featuring full touch screen controls and remade graphics that may or may not please your nostalgic eyeballs. The price tag is higher than most mobile games, but reports thus far indicate it's a solid re-release.
