The lights are on
It’s been a slow week in mobile gaming, but I’ve pieced together a few gems that should soothe your brain overload from E3. Hey look, a baby panda…
Pet Rescue SagaDeveloper: KingPlatforms: AndroidPrice: Free
In May, Candy Crush Saga was the most popular video game in the world. King, the developers of that game, have teamed up to bring you even more addictive puzzle action with Pet Rescue Saga, now out on Android. Brace yourselves: piglets and kittens are involved.
Gangstar VegasDeveloper: GameloftPlatforms: iOSPrice: $6.99
At 1.4 GB, Gangstar Vegas is a hefty mobile game. Its size makes sense, though, when you take a look at its stellar graphics and quality open-world gameplay. GTA fans should take delight in this iOS game. Look for it for Android soon.
Syberia – Part 1 HDDeveloper: MicroidsPlatforms: iOSPrice: Free trial; $4.99
Its reviews in the App Store are mixed so far, but Syberia has been fully ported to iOS with its original mystery and intrigue. Syberia is an adventure game, not unlike Myst, set in a mechanical alternate reality. Try it for free now.
Deep Dungeons of DoomDeveloper: Bossa StudiosPlatforms: iOSPrice: Free
Deep Dungeons of Doom is an 16-bit dungeon crawler full of both witchcraft and wizardry. It also comes with quite the learning curve. I’m always slightly skeptical of free games, but it can’t hurt to give it a try.
