Human Resources Corporation, a fun programming introduction game is available now
Human Resources Corporation, from some of the same fine folks that brought us World of Goo is a puzzle games that makes some of the basics of programming into a fun little exercise.
The premise is that the player is a new recruit in a corporation that need to tell other in game characters how to move and act by giving a set of program commands to complete tasks. It’s a great introduction to the logic used in programming and a fun little game with great personality. Which is expected considering the team that created this.

3D robot puzzle game Mekorama is fun, charming, and unique
From Martin Magni, the developer of the great Odd Bot Out, Mekorama hit the App Store this week. This charming puzzle game has the player guide a robot through a series of very unique 3D puzzles. The puzzles have shades of Monument Valley without the Escher inspired vibe.
One of the features that really sets this game apart from others is the integrated level editor. This lets players create their own levels and share them via a simple QR code integrated image. Take a look at the new levels shared on Twitter with the #Mekorama hashtag. I’ve even created one to test the path finding skills of that little robot.
Mekorama is free in the App Store with a pay what you want price model.

Train Conductor World Leaves the Station Right on Schedule
The folks at Voxel Agents are a little obsessed with trains and with making really good train games. And that’s OK. Or great if we are talking about Train Conductor World.
Starting out on a European map, the game combines multi-level train routing puzzles with quick thinking and collecting. Expanding the rail map leads to new cities and new types of puzzles to solve. It’s a really well thought out puzzle game that turns the level map on it’s ear by letting the player control where to go next by where they lay the train track pieces.
A great follow up to the Train Conductor series from Voxel Agents!

Momoka - Touch Arcade Game of the Week
The thing that really sets Momoka apart from those other games and gives it its own feel is when you first get the keys to your very own rocket ship. From there you can blast off and explore an entire solar system of tiny planets that, when you land on them and are exploring on foot, actually feel quite expansive. Flying through the solar system is a trip and tons of fun, and was the moment that I knew Momoka was going to be a special game. Add in the fantastic music and a quirky cast of characters to meet throughout the galaxy and you really can feel all the heart and soul that went into this game.

Scribblenauts Unlimited draws a 4.5/5 from Gamezebo
Scribblenauts Unlimited almost lives up to its name. Aside from copyrighted material and most specific people (you can summon George Washington but not Elvis), Scribblenauts Unlimited allows players to create anything they can dream up in order to solve the game’s puzzles.
Overall, Scribblenauts Unlimited is an excellent game that is great for all ages that allows players room to play however they’d like — though Scribblenauts Unlimited truly shines when players use their imagination.
