The Beeb has done us all a great service today. On the BBC Radio 4 website you’ll find a lovingly re-created 30th Anniversary Edition of the Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy text adventure. And yes, I’ve already tried it and it works perfectly well on your iPad (and presumably so on whatever mobile device you’ve got).

AMC has announced that their tension and zombie filled TV show The Walking Dead will finally be getting a mobile game in the near future. AMC has brought on a new game development studio called Next Games which is almost a sort of ‘dream team’ in a lot of ways.

Doing lines: Subway-builder Mini Metro is coming to iOS & Android

If you won’t take my word for it that a game about mass-transit system design can be a tense, white-knuckle thriller, go play the free in-browser beta of Mini Metro yourself. You’re the administrator of the city’s subway, and stations (and passengers) are popping up all the time. The city, in its bureaucratic wisdom, allocates you just one upgrade per week: a new line, additional cars for existing lines, under-river tunnels and the like.

christine Tue Mar 04 11:20:41 2014
Last week I heard from Glitchsoft, the makers of that perfectly-styled He-Man mobile game from 2012. The Canadian devs wanted to announce that they were putting the finishing touches on Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past for iOS and Android and that it would be available in May. Which very conveniently will land it right alongside the rush of promotion for Marvel’s Tyrion Lannister-starring X-Men film of the same name.

Crescent Moon Games is on a pretty good roll with game releases onto Android as of late and today the company has published their fourth game in just over a week called Greedy Dwarf. This game is sort of a race through levels collecting gold type of title.

I do know that the keenly-anticipated expansion to last year’s RPG of the Year runner-up is out right now for desktops on Steam. I’ve asked Harebrained Schemes if they had a target date for when the mobile version of Dragonfall would be released and they replied with their usual circumspection that they did not.

Steve Jackson’s Sorcery! gamebooks have been around for quite some time, originally debuting in 1983.

It was only last week that I was having one of my semi-regular tantrums about the mind-blowingly inexplicable dearth of real city builders and economic sims on mobile. And wouldn’t you know it? The universe has answered. The power of (mostly) positive thinking, brothers and sisters.

christine Thu Feb 20 09:43:25 2014
High Moon is a turn-based game set in a world where cowboys of the Old West settled their disputes with magic duels. That’s not actually that fantastical. Here at PT HQ we settle disagreements with magic all the time. My best trick is to go out to lunch with Phil and make my wallet disappear. That gets Phil every time, and gets me a free lunch.

Gameblyr has released their highly acclaimed strategy board game Pathogen onto Android today. As some of you might be guessing by the name of this game, your goal in Pathogen is to basically take over the board with your color. While this may seem simple at first, it actually gets quite challenging once you get into it.

Sharp-dressed Moai: Card City Nights out on Android, coming to iOS shortly
christine Mon Feb 17 11:33:46 2014
A new game showed up on Steam last week called Card City Nights that its creator describes as combining the puzzle gameplay from Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes with Tetra Master, the card game-within-a-game from Final Fantasy IX, plus adventure beats from Professor Layton and collecting from Pokemon mixed in for good measure. The game features characters from the popular iOS Zelda-like Ittle Dew, which I didn’t play and therefore cannot crack wise about.
