Trolls and kittens and robots HOORAY! It's like an internet geek's paradise in this edition of Mobile Monday. If only we could have worked in some meme references, too. But, you know, ain't nobody got time for that.
The End is Meow (Windows, free) - Delightfully chaotic controls plus kittens equals lots of frantic fun. Your job is to locate and deliver intelligent life forms to the cats that are getting ready to attack Earth. Naturally, intelligent life means other cats, so you get to herd them towards the goal by maneuvering four pods around, each with a single "push" beam facing in one direction. If you have four hands this isn't a problem, otherwise you'll switch between four control key sets to move them one or two at a time. Give it a try, you'll see how crazy it can be!
Troll Song - Verse One (Windows, free) - A demo for a planned episodic series of comedic point and click adventure games starring trolls, those creatures who are too often shown as mindless oafs. You play as Clod, a troll trapped in a cage with little more than a depressed disposition and an impressive ability to roar. It'll only take about 15 minutes to complete, but the puzzles are entertaining and you'll feel good about yourself for helping to raise awareness of troll rights around the world.
Zerox Residuum (Windows, free) - A sidescrolling arcade game made to tug at your nostalgia muscles. A robotic race known as the Zerox have taken over the Earth, turning it into a wasteland. You have to win the world back by defeating the robots one shot at a time! A simple game with a straightforward premise, it scores big points by baiting the hook with lovely Game Boy-style visuals and music.
