Mobile Monday

JohnBHow about some more Android games? Several great time wasters in this edition of Mobile Monday, including a release anyone who has ever played a Flash game will recognize: The Elements. Gotta love playing with lava on your phone!

Use a barcode scanning app to scan the QR codes and start downloading the games to your phone. We also recommend AppBrain, a wonderful program that integrates app browsing/installation across web browsers and your phone!

trap.gifTrap! - The classic game of divide and trap with a sweet Android interface and some interesting power-ups. Several balls bounce around the screen. Swipe your finger a little bit across the screen and a line will start to draw. If the line makes it to the walls without hitting a ball, it sections off an area and traps the balls in the free space. Any coins, extra lives, or power-ups (such as bonus time, freezing the balls, etc.) you trap are collected. Tap the "speed" button and your next line will draw with turbo speed, a nice feature when you see that irresistible gap in the bouncing pattern. Three modes let you stagger the difficulty to suit your mood: training, normal, and skill.

theelements.gifThe Elements - Ever heard of a little game called Sand Sand Sand? How about Powder Game? The Elements is a nice implementation of the physics sandbox genre, complete with tons of elements, the ability to save and load creations, and even an option to craft your own materials! What better time waster could you ask for? Simply choose an element, change the brush size, and start scribbling on the screen. As you add more materials they begin to interact, so when lava hits C4, something might just happen. Better get some water in there, otherwise your plant material will turn to fire.

missing.gifMissing - Room escape games have a comfortable home in your web browser, but why not on your phone, too? Missing is a straight-up point-and-click room escape game modified for a touch screen interface. Tap the arrows at the bottom of the screen to navigate, and tap things on the screen to check them out. Some items can be combined in the inventory (a process that's just a bit confusing at first), and the puzzles are solid. A few of the hotspots are rough to find, so a little trial-and-error tapping is in order, but not too much. Hopefully this will inspire some more escape games to migrate to the mobile platform!

fruitninja.jpgFruit Ninja - Yep, it's exactly what you think. Unless you thought the ninja was made of fruit, which would be wrong. A reflexes game about slicing fruit by swiping your finger across the screen. It couldn't be simpler than that, but for some reason you'll log more time with this game than most of the games on your phone. It's a very satisfying experience to slice all those guys without having to clean up the mess! (Note: Some older phones may have a hard time running the game smoothly.)

NOTE: Games listed may not be available outside of North America. Prices are subject to change and are therefore unlisted. Please see the individual game pages for purchasing info. Games have been confirmed to run on Android 2.1 on an HTC Eris.

I've had the Fruit Ninja game for a while and it is rather addicting. Always fun trying to unlock more backgrounds, new blades and everything else. Worth it.
