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.
