October 29, 2012, is going to be a big day for mobile fans. Google and Microsoft go head-to-head with presentations of the future and iOS users get to kick back and play some games while it all goes down.
It’ll be exciting to see if there’s any serious competition coming from either company and as you wait for the announcements, here are some games to get into:
Dodonpachi Maximum is Cave’s first attempt at a SHMUP designed specifically for smartphones. It’s currently on sale for $6.99 and then $11.99 after the sale ends. It features an easy mode for newcomers and remixed classic music from previous DonPachi games.
Letterpress – Word Game is a simple and free word game where you play against your Game Center friends by stealing tiles, forming words, and “coloring the board.”
Crossword Dungeon is a nice twist on the classic puzzle game. Letters are guarded by monsters and you have to guess the letter to defeat the monster or suffer damage from an incorrect guess. Players can choose from three classes, each with special skills to help them bravely guess the letters and words.
