Mobile Monday №219
Did somebody leave the front door open? Because there's a draft in here. Seriously, stand by the wall there. You feel it, don't you? Maybe just lean down a bit. More. Moooore. HA! Tricked you into reading mobile game news!
Hiversaires Says Hi to Android - Hiversaires only hit iOS a few weeks ago, but developer Aliceffekt has already brought the minimalist adventure game over to Android devices. Like Myst or Kairo, Hiversaires is a game about exploration and discovery that makes no attempt to lead you, instead letting you come to terms with the world around you in your own time and on your own terms. It's a beautiful, challenging and atmospheric game. Our Hiversaires review has more info.
Fancy a little digging? - One part Terraria, one part King Arthur's Gold, and one part Growtopia, OmniDig is an accessible mobile sandbox creativity game currently in the works by Jesse Watson. Out in the woods with just a few basic tools, it's your job to gather resources and craft the materials you'll need to stay alive. There are a variety of biomes to explore, weapons and armor to equip, enemies to encounter, and even turrets to build! OmniDig is currently available for Android, but keep in mind it isn't a finished product just yet, so more goodies are in store!
Free App of the Week: Asphalt 7: Heat - Each week on the iTunes App Store, Apple drops a single release down to the tasty price of "free". This week, that freebie is Asphalt 7: Heat, an arcade racing game from the mobile juggernaut Gameloft. While the game itself is known for being surprisingly playable for a touch screen racer, the real selling point is the visual presentation. Those cars are just gorgeous, and once you see them in motion, you'll be glad you took four seconds to grab it for free!
