Whether you’re traveling, sitting by the pool or just chillin’ with family, here are my top 5 Mobile Game recommendations for Memorial Day Weekend.
PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES by PopCap
If you’re flying, Plants Vs. Zombies is the perfect game to play on the plane.
I hope most of you have this game by now, but in case you don’t, this is a MUST HAVE.
The premise: Zombies are attacking with some very creative armor. While you hideout in the house, your front yard Plants do their best to save your brains.
(Note to PopCap – if you’re reading this – CAN I HAZ SEQUEL ??)
Plants Vs. Zombies is available on many mobile platforms, so you have no excuse: iOS, Android, iPad, iPhone, iPod, Kindle Fire, Windows Phone 7, Nintendo DS.
“Get ready to soil your plants in this action-strategy game from PopCap! A mob of fun-loving zombies is about to invade your home, and your only defense is an arsenal of zombie-zapping plants. Use peashooters, wall-nuts, herry-bombs and more to slow down, confuse, weaken and mulchify the zombies before they can reach your front door. Each zombie has its own special skills, so you’ll need to think fast and plant faster to combat them all. But be careful how you use your limited supply of greens and seeds: as you battle the fun-dead, obsatacles like a setting sun, creeping fog and a swimming pool add to the challenge. And with all the game modes, the fun never dies!
High-definition, multi-touch mayhem for iPad! Play with up to 11 simultaneous touch points (we’re sure you can figure it out) as you defend your home and brains from the armies of the fun-dead. Battle through 4 game modes and 18 mini-games, including the iPad-only ‘Buttered Popcorn.’”
JETPACK JOYRIDE by Halfbrick Studios
This game can serve as a quick fix between holiday activities.
“In Jetpack Joyride you’ll be riding in jetpacks, collecting coins, going for a spin in a huge variety of vehicles and even levelling up by completing in-game missions. On top of that, you can view your progress in The Stash, purchase new upgrades and items and compare scores online with your friends. Get ready to Jetpack Joyride! Also recently available on Facebook.”
SUPERBROTHERS: SWORD & SWORCERY EP by Capybara Games Inc
I suggest this game to be played if you have some alone time this weekend. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP is more of an experience than a game.
“Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery is an exploratory action adventure with an emphasis on audiovisual style. Traverse a mythic little realm, use a sword to do battle & evoke sworcery to solve mystical musical mysteries. Co-operate with friends via Twitter, experience a videogame world that is affected by moon phases & help a wandering warrior monk complete her woeful errand. The game features an album’s worth of original music by noted composer Jim Guthrie as well as artwork & designs by Superbrothers Inc.”
GOVERNOR OF POKER by YoudaGames
If you want a weekend long adventure to pick-up and put-down at will, then Governor of Poker is for you.
The premise: A role-playing poker game that pits you against the best NPCs in Texas. As you win, take over one city at a time until you become Governor of the entire state.
“Governor of Poker goes back to the roots of this very exciting card game. Great HD quality for the iPad!
We know you must have heard about Texas hold’em poker by now? Who Hasn’t? Governor of Poker is a totally different kind of poker game. Play either as a male or a female character in this highly interactive poker game.
Your only Goal: Get a hold of Texas! How? Battle your way in poker tournaments or side games and win all the cash or property! Buy houses and means of transport to get you everywhere in Texas.
In Governor of Poker you can make it and you can make it BIG! At the end you only have to wonder: do I have all I wanted? Or is there one more poker game I must win?”
BEJEWELED HD by PopCap
The perfect game to play before bed this weekend, especially with the new “Zen” mode. We all know Bejeweled, but if you have an iPad, I highly recommend the new HD version with retina designed display graphics.
The premise: Match 3 or more gems of the same color in various methods of gameplay.
“Experience the world’s #1 puzzle game on your iPad in HD!
The all-new Bejeweled® HD for iPad rises to new levels with crisp, beautiful colors in four breathtaking game modes. Ease into Classic for cascades of fun, save Butterflies from a hungry spider, dig into Diamond Mine for a gem-blasting challenge, or slip into Zen for a revolutionary new way to relax. Collect flashy Bejeweled badges, compete with your friends in Game Center leaderboards and achievements, and create electrifying special gems including Flame gems, Star gems, and Hypercubes!”
Enjoy the games and have a safe Memorial Day Weekend!
