Paul & Percy (iPad) - The same Flash game that tickled the crumpets out of us over the summer now has an official iOS port! On the hunt for their missing biscuits, Paul and Percy step into a portal and enter a world split in twain. They must learn to cooperate using various blocks to clear paths so each can reach the exit portal unharmed. Charming, extremely challenging, lengthy, and with plenty of nods to classic 16-bit era video games, Paul & Percy is just as good (if not better, thanks to the hands-on touch controls) as its browser cousin!
Bag It! (iPhone/iPod Touch, iPad) - Ever thought bagging groceries was tough? It totally is, what with all those breakable, squishable, temperamental items you've got to squeeze in there. Bag It! capitalizes on that weekly struggle with a creative (and great-looking) physics puzzle game that challenges you to fit items into a grocery bag in the most efficient way possible. Move things like orange juice, eggs, melons and milk from the belt at the top, then delicately place them in the bag below. Rotate items to squeeze everything in you can, and look for combos like putting breakfast foods together, but be careful not to flatten any delicate objects. Unlockable levels and game modes give you plenty of incentive to keep playing, but when a mobile game looks this good and plays this well, you don't need many excuses to keep at it! Bag It! HD for iPad is also available.
Saving Yello (universal) - When a mischievous kid decides to torture his goldfish by dropping him outside of his tank, Yello Does his best to make it back, destroying as many toys as he can along the way! Pull and snap Yello's tail to send him flying, and grab things like dynamite, flames, and bags of bombs to cause some destruction along the way. You only have a few throws to get back to the bowl, so be strategic and don't get too carried away with all the destruction! Massively entertaining and plenty of levels to keep you busy, with more on the way!
