For some reason I was thinking about Astraware yesterday and some of the amazing games they made for PDAs of the past. They still make great games today, but in an industry that is much larger and very difficult to reach the top within.
I then started thinking about some of the games I loved a lot and wondered if any of you knew of alternatives that are available today on iOS and Android? It seems that there are some games (mostly Palm OS) that have never been recreated for modern mobile devices.
Igzo The Dolphin
A near perfect game which was hugely addictive on Palm OS devices. It simply involved jumping a dolphin through hoops and the repetitiveness was what ironically made it so great to play.
Such simple games cobbled together to make you want to beat your high score in each, and then to round it all up by getting your best overall high score. Loved it!
For some reason the 2D mobile version of Monopoly worked brilliantly whereas the new 3D slick versions are just too complex for their own good. Give me a 2D version back.
What a great game this was, but sadly it didn’t make it past the very earliest mobile devices.
Great (!) game from Astraware. Played this for hours and hours and hours.
Are there any other games that you want to play again?
