Gaggles of Gaming!

Here we go, folks – it’s another bushel of gaming goodness and smart-phone shenanigans as we get our hot little hands on a new batch of mobile merriment to help pass those long subway sojourns and bus boardings so head on over to your favorite app store and get your game on!

Amazon selects The Mordis, a cute puzzle adventure game published by Chilibite Games and developed by Codi games, as its free App of the Day in the Amazon Appstore for Android.

Once upon a time there were some cute little creatures living in peace and joy. They were sweeter than candy and therefore beloved to all. One day, evil Mr. Sugar caught them all and brought them to his hideout, his mind thinking sinister thoughts as he hummed “Cotton candy, cotton candy…”

But four of the little creatures managed to escape by hiding in the depths of the forest. Now they want to save their friends, and this is where they need your help. Help four courageous Mordis find their way back to their captured friends and bring them to safety!

“The Mordis” is a puzzle game where you overcome obstacles and solve tests that pop up in a fun and intuitive way. Use your wit to make your own path with the tools available. Use fewer tools, save time, and avoid getting killed to score more points.

Totmob Releases Plekos for iOS and Android Devices

Plekos is a carefully crafted replica of a very traditional soccer game. The original game is made out of a shallow wooden tray, with nails representing players. There are spaces cut out for the goals and the ball is usually a coin, or a bottle cap. In this mobile version the user can play against the machine, or against a friend on the same device. The game can also set up a championship for up to eight people on one device.

“When I was a kid we used to spend hours playing this game,” said Orlando Shorter, founder of Kinetics and Totmob. “In the days where video games weren’t around and we used to play on doorsteps and in the street, a bottle cap soccer board meant hours of fun. They were lovingly made with the help of an elder brother or a dad. We hope that this game can recapture that feel, by bringing a bunch of friends together around a tablet.”

You can play from the get-go by tapping “QUICK PLAY,” or you can set up a championship with your friends. By adjusting the settings on the first screen and tapping “NEXT” the process is very simple. To play you flick the bottle cap forward by running your finger over it, swiping it in the direction you want it to travel. The game physics are very realistic.

Plekos is free to play, and you can purchase an ad-free version, available worldwide exclusively through the App Store, Google Play and Amazon.

Game Insight releases Mystery Manor Blitz for iPad

Game Insight, a world leader in mobile and social games, has revealed the newest game in the hitMystery Manor hidden-object game franchise: Mystery Manor Blitz. This exciting and fast-paced new chapter in the Mystery Manor series will debut on the iPad later this year.

In Mystery Manor Blitz, players will experience the mysterious mansion of Mr. X in a whole new way as they tackle the manor in a series of timed challenges that will test not only their wits, but also their reflexes! In the game, players will traverse the colorful rooms of the haunted manor and revisit the unique atmosphere of Mystery Manor while conquering the premises room by room. Each room conceals a new set of hidden objects that must be unearthed before time runs out.

While Mystery Manor Blitz will offer powerful tool items such as compasses, bombs, time boosts, and flares to help players complete their current room, the highest scores in the game will only be available to those players aggressive enough and skilled enough to solve puzzles without the help of any items whatsoever. Those players who do possess the sleuthing skill and the fast fingers to complete each challenge within the allotted time limit will unlock powerful bonuses and massive score multipliers that will propel them to stardom on the scoreboards.

So in Mystery Manor Blitz, you not only have to beat the clock but also the high scores of other players in order to hit the leaderboards. Players will also be able to unlock rewards and achievements which they can share with their friends on Facebook and Twitter.

And that’ll do it for today. Check back in for more mobile gaming!
