Play This! Podcast 35: Our favorite mobile games
What makes a good mobile game that sucks you in and drains your battery? Jason, Susie, and Alex lay down a few mostly-true guidelines for mobile gaming greatness. Much more difficult is picking a favorite mobile game...nobody was able to pick only one.
Susie's phone is packed with board games adapted to iOS; Jason likes the fast and fluid gameplay of titles like Space Miner and Ascension; while Alex thinks games on his phone should be able to deliver an adrenaline high within a minute and a half. Tune in for a pretty diverse, atypical (get out of here, Angry Birds) selection of top-notch mobile time killers.
Links from this episode:
- For their mobile game favorites, Susie picks Ticket to Ride and Carcassonne, Jason goes with Space Miner and Ascension, and Alex settles on Hero Academy and Super Hexagon.
- Susie discusses how there are naked women within the first five minutes of shows she's hooked on: Orange is the New Black and Hit & Miss, both currently streaming on Netflix. Jason's still chipping away at Dexter, and Alex is wading through Aaron Sorkin's dramas staring with The West Wing, even if they're a bit heavy-handed and self-important.
- The Steam summer sale is underway through July 22nd.
