The lights are on
From a classic favorite like our blue hedgehog friend to fishing to a dark physics- based puzzle game, this week’s selection of mobile games has an adventurous side.
You know I couldn’t resist putting a Sonic iOS game in this week’s lineup. Recently named the number two most-downloaded paid app, Sonic Dash let’s you control Sonic (and unlock other characters with game progression) as he zips through levels collecting rings. Don’t confuse this with the Sonic Dash app for Android – that’s just a wallpaper app for the game.
Ridiculous Fishing: A Tale of Redemption
You play as the hook in this fishy action game. Dive down into the deep and avoid jellyfish. Collect as many fish as you can on the way up. Then shoot the fish and launch them in the air. Be careful: Jellyfish give you a score penalty if you hook them.

In Danger Boat, you control the boat and avoid obstacles. Gain special power-ups to blast obstacles out of the way or dash ahead at full speed temporarily.
Developer: Nicalis, Inc.
When I first saw this game, I immediately thought of Limbo. Though I’m not much of a puzzle fan, I loved Limbo. NightSky offers similar physics-based puzzles that require strategic thinking and quick decision-making.
Rock Bandits – Adventure Time
Developer: Cartoon Network
Maybe one of my favorite shows on Cartoon Network right now, this adventure game has Finn and Jake battling enemies to save Marceline’s stolen fans. You fight your way through a number of levels and customize Finn’s sword along the way.
