Previously on Technoodling (March 11 to 17) / Games on my phone


You know how much of a non-gamer I am. I wouldn’t know a WoW from a WWF. Just the same, that doesn’t mean that I don’t have a game or two in my phone. After all, you do need to kill time every now and then, like when waiting in line at the grocery.

The common denominator: I tend to go for casual games that are simple yet logically challenging.

So here are the casual games that are in my (Android) phone at the moment:

Flow Free by Big Duck Games LLC. Once you get how it works, this is an addictive logic game that sees you completely filling out a box with varicolored lines. Again. And again.

Unblock Me Free by Kiragames, Co., Ltd. The classic sokoban conundrum, where you shift blocks around to let a master block pass through. Except this time using nicely detailed wooden blocks. Great swipe feel.

7×7 by Klip, Inc. Adel already covered this recently. Stack colored boxes four or more in a row to get rid of them. The nicely done color palette keeps things looking clean and tidy.

Candy Crush Saga by This is sooo girly that I am ashamed just to even have it on my phone! Argh! And yet the puzzles, presented in Wreck-It Ralph Sugar Rush vividness/cuteness, can be pachinko-addictive in their bells-and-whistles dissolution.

Gah. Time killers alright. And speaking of time killers, here are last week’s news.
