10 fun and silly iPhone games
For those who have played Sven on their PCs, the title needs no introduction. For those who haven't, you are the only black sheep (and the only male, for that matter) in the herd. The goal is to flirt with the lady sheep without getting caught by the shepherd or his dog Wotan.
Don't be fooled by the pixelated graphics. Enviro-Bear 2010 is actually a very entertaining game, and the absurd gameplay is what makes it so engaging. Long story short, you are a bear collecting food in effort to get as fat as possible before hibernating for the winter time. And yes, you do that while driving a car.
The classic PC game has arrived on the iPhone, along with enhanced graphics and its wacky storyline. In "The Secret of Monkey Island", the player takes control of Guybrush Threepwood, who longs to become the most infamous pirate in the Caribbean. Easier said than done.
Pee Monkey Plant Bloom is a physics-based game with over 100 fun levels. You control the angle, at which the monkey pees, and the goal is to water all the plants scattered throughout the stage. Perfect for killing time while commuting.
This is the iPhone version of the silly Japanese game Katamari Damacy. The goal is to keep the ball rolling... literally, as it grows bigger and bigger while various objects stick to it. And by objects we mean anything, from pencils and bottles to cars and trees. Several game modes are available, including Story, Time Attack, Exact Size Challenge, and Eternal.
And here's another timeless PC classic - Worms, available on the iPhone and the iPad in all of its two-dimensional glory. For those who have never played it, two or more teams of trigger-happy worms are fighting for dominance, and only one of them must remain. A number of quirky weapons are at your disposal, including Sheep and Banana Bomb. Multi-player mode has also been included, but you'll have to swap the iPhone or iPad between players.
Think of Albert as a collection of mini games, with each game following a regular day in the life of our protagonist, Albert. The graphics are actually hand-painted drawings digitally converted into pseudo-3D images, so the game feels a bit like flicking through the pages of a child's book.
8. Stop the vom
Rabtus the rabbit is stuck on a swing, and its Cumber the cucumber that set him up with a silly practical joke. Your goal is to tilt your iPhone so that Rabtus stays balanced, as otherwise he might throw up causing you to start the level all over again. Meaningless, yet cute trophies are to be collected along the way.
"One day, in the beautiful country of Castle Land, the (not so) dreaded Mr. Evil kidnaps the (very) cute and (not so) timid Princess Ceksie! The heroic (but not very modest) Max Power, whose only goal in life is to become a great video game hero (no matter how and at what cost), decides to gather his (rather lame) friends and form a (somewhat dubious) battalion to save the day!" Couldn't have put it better than the game's description itself!
10. MewMew Tower
The goal of the game is to construct a tower as tall as possible... by stacking cats on top of each other. Cute addicts, beware!
