Golf Zero

Half golf game, half platformer, Golf Zero entertains

Golf Zero is the kind of game that must have come out of a dare or a high. Combine a golf game with a platformer and throw in bullet time just for the heck of it. In the multiple holes the player has up to three shots to get the ball in the hole while jumping from platforms and generally shooting the ball (magically) while in the air. Not sure how that works, but this game, miraculously does work.

It’s inventive, fun, lots of levels, and best of all it’s free to play with ads.

Ticket to Earth

Robot Circus brings turn based battler Ticket to Earth to mobile

Turn-based grid battler Ticket to Earth is finally out on mobile. I first saw this promising game what seems like a lifetime ago. In Ticket to Earth, the board grid is played like a strategic match-3 game. Connect the tiles to increase / trigger certain powers. The strategy involved is where the player under control ends up. Too close to the bad guys and they will strike. Too far and the player can’t strike them.

Ticket to Earth is a good strategy game that melds a couple styles that work well on mobile together. The game play time is a bit long for a casual player, but just right if you like strategy games and are willing to devote a little time in a play session.

SpinnyWings

"One Touch Flying Mayhem!" - Spinnywings brings memories of the arcade to mobile

Single button control games aren’t usually my thing. They generally lack any sort of replayability. But in this case it’s an design decision that actually works out well as it keep the game arcade-like. In Spinnywings you touch the screen to turn right, avoid other planes and gather balloons for power-ups, loot, and fuel. Arcade fun through and through.

Spin your way across the sky and collect balloons. Unlock loot crates and collect 10 different aircraft along with a ton of different boosts, paint schemes and streamers.

See how long you can resist the massed forces of Evil Air Corporation’s zeppelins, fighters, bombers, choppers and air mines!

The Big Journey

Big Journey from Armor Games makes me wish ngmoco didn't implode

Big Journey is just about too cute. It’s a rolling fat cat that has to eat and grow as it rolls through a beautiful platformer. Quite an homage to Rolando and the days of past. It takes the simple premise of a rolling platformer and adds a few interesting twists to it while not making it too difficult.

A real cute one and worth picking up, even if it’s just to remember how great Rolando was and complain about it being gone.

Aftershock - Tactical Card Combat

Aftershock brings quick play to card battlers

Aftershock is the new title from Wonderspark that came out of the development of Give Me Fuel (soft launched last year). I’ve been watching the development for just about a year and it’s come a long way. The goal was to come up with a tactical / strategy game that could be played on mobile and in short play times. In this version a single player adventure mode has been added that, in a nice twist, uses location data and fitness records to tailor the characters abilities.

If you like strategy games, but hate the long playtimes, give this a shot.

Mushroom 11

Unique puzzle adventure game perfectly suited to touch screens

I first saw Mushroom 11 running on an iPad what must have been over two years ago. It’s perfectly suited to touch screen controls and feels foreign on desktop. But the current climate means indie developers marketing strategy, as dumb as it is, is to release on PC first. Lots of reasons to do so, but inability to figure out how to market to mobile users effectively is a big part of it. With the whole marketing strategy now being bring a PC game to mobile and people will pay a bit more.

Enough about that, how about this game. It’s a really well done puzzle game where the players multitouch pushes move an amoeba like blob through a series of levels. Really well done, very unique, and fun!
