Sorry to all about missing last week. I had a family emergency that prevented me doing any kind of writing all weekend. With the recommendations this week, I wish I had some of these when I had no access to any gaming devices but my iPhone.
Spy Vs. Spy – iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
Ahh, the good old days of playing Spy Vs. Spy on my Commodore 64. I had more fun trying to find all the different ways to set traps for my opponent than I did looking for the items I needed to escape. Thankfully, Robots and Pencils put a “retro” mode in the iOS version so people old as I can relive those fun times in front of their C64′s. There is also a slew of new features and modes as well as multiplayer so you can grief your Game Center friends. Get the mobile reboot of Spy Vs. Spy on iTunes for $1.99 here
Party Wave – iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad
While it’s no Kelly Slater’s Pro Surfer, the latest game from Mistwalker can hold its own with the rest of the surfing games. A little off the beaten path for the creator of the beloved Final Fantasy series, Hironobu Sakaguchi’s love for surfing translates into a fun, arcade-like experience on the go. Put on some sunscreen, wax your board and head on over to the iTunes store to pick up Party Wave for $1.99
