This Week In Mobile – Prince Of Persia, Leisure Suit Larry, And Dubstep

by Matt Akers on Jul 26, 2013 at 11:00 AM

This Week in Mobile knows no boundaries as it highlights the mishaps of Leisure Suit Larry and space combat set to dubstep. Mostly safe for work.

Leisure Suit Larry: Reloaded
Developer: N-Fusion; Replay; Al Lowe
Platform: iOS
Price: $4.99

The sexual exploits of Larry Laffer are just as crude in 2013 as they were in 1987. But hey, now you can play them on the go. For those who missed out on the very first Leisure Suit Larry game back in the day, N-Fusion and Replay Games have made it available in the App Store. The template is nearly identical to the original game, including the obscure and sometimes maddening process of finding solutions to puzzles. It was also available in the Google Play store initially, but has since been pulled for unclear reasons.

Prince of Persia: The Shadow and the Flame
Developer: Ubisoft Pune
Platform: Android; iOS
Price: $2.99

Prince of Persia 2: The Shadow and the Flame was released all the way back in 1993. This mobile remake from Ubisoft Pune revisits that game, giving new fans a chance to jump in with dramatically improved mechanics and added combos. There’s no time travel here, but there are 14 levels and the choice between virtual gamepad and gesture-based controls.

Sky Gamblers: Cold War
Developer: Revo; Atypical
Platform: iOS
Price: $4.99

Cold War is the latest entry in the Sky Gamblers aerial combat series. Its single-player campaign offers a diverse set of missions, ranging from spying, to escorting allies, to classic dogfighting. Multiplayer, though, is where this game really shines. Capture the flag, king of the hill, and deathmatch modes are only a few of the PvP options available. To top it all off, Cold War’s sharp sound design and camera-angle options make this a very solid mobile shooter. 

Futuridium EP
Developer: Mixedbag
Platform: iOS
Price: $1.99

The Italian developers at Mixedbag have created just that with Futuridium EP – a mixed bag. Frustrating control issues and a lack of depth make this game less than stellar, but smart level design and a dubstep theme make it well worth a try. Inspired by 1986’s Uridium, this game allows players to fly three-dimensional polygon space ships in rhythm to electronica and house music tracks in the background. There is even an option to change songs on the fly (see what I did there).
