Mobile Monday N°255
Get to demolishing things! In their own unique ways, the games in this edition of Mobile Monday are all about destruction. The destruction of alien bugs. The destruction of evil kitties. The destruction of... plums.
Clobbr all the things - Clobbr presents a very interesting take on the puzzle/mining genres. Your mouse friends want to escape the cave, but an orange kitty blocks the way. By sliding the rows of blocks you can arrange the puzzle tiles as you like, then give the mallet a swipe to send the rock rolling. Depending on the layout of the tiles, the stone travels in different directions, hopefully landing to scare away the cat and maybe grab some cheese along the way. A very brainy game that's simple to pick up but hard to master. The time limit can be a little frustrating, but otherwise it's cute, smart, and endlessly fun.
Harry likes smaller plums - Squeezing himself down to iPhone size, the Fantastic Contraption-inspired Harry Likes Plums has finally made its way to smaller-than-iPad iOS devices. Blending precise puzzles, physics toys, and, well, plums, Harry has a unique way of charming you while keeping the challenge level surprisingly high. And that artwork? Delicious!
Sanctum's tower defense goes mobile - Here's a bit of a surprise: the 3D first person shooter/tower defense game Sanctum has gone mobile. It's not the big bad daddy version, though, it's the streamlined SNES-style tower defense PC release from a few months back called Super Sanctum TD. Isometric gameplay puts a new slant on the TD setup, while the series' tower sets and perks system rounds out the experience quite nicely. It's a great play with a perfect balance between hardcore and casual styles.
