Not Martha

iPad games I’ve been saving for travel

I’ve been saving up a few games on my iPad for our upcoming trip

The Cave
This is a Sega game from Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert an Double Fine Productions. I have not played it yet so I’m just hoping that the on screen controls all make sense. Yay for vintage games. (iTunes.)

The Walking Dead
What? I know, I have been holding onto this game for a long time. I played the first chapter and decided to keep it for the upcoming long plane ride. (iTunes.)

Tiny Thief
I actually played all the way through this and have been trying to forget all the good stuff so I can play it again. This game is so very charming and sweet, I actually played each level as a sort of bedtime story. This is a simple and entertaining point and click animated game. (iTunes, also on Android.)

Draw A Stickman Epic
I played through this before but they’ve added a levels and completeist elements since then. Also it’s all Halloween themed right now! (iTunes.)

This one is a suggestion on my part, I played the PC version of this a few years back and really really enjoyed it. I’m not sure how the on-screen controls will translate. In this game you are a little mermaid creature who wakes up with no memory and have to explore the underwater world, memories come back as you explore. There is a little combat but you can largely zoom past all the nasty creatures instead of fighting. (iTunes.)

Are there any iPad games you’ve been playing lately? Any that were surprisingly amazing?

    Thanks for these! I have a couple of long flights and layovers in December. I just have to resist the urge to play them all before then!

    I play a lot of Rayman (jungle run) and Badlands on my iPad. I find the graphics and atmosphere in both games absolutely stunning

    I’ve been playing Device 6, which is kind of a text adventure/puzzle/escape game. It’s a bit older, but I loved Bastion- the art and music is amazing.

    The Room!

    Thanks for these suggestions! I completely forgot to include The Room on my list here – it was a lot easier to play on my iPad than my iPhone and it kept me nicely distracted.

    I have not heard of Device 6, thanks for the suggestion!

    I loved “Imaginarium”. It plays very similarly to “Tiny Thief” – the graphics are so unique and beautiful and the story is great.

    I’ve been really loving all the Avernum games from Spiderweb Games. After my years in the Photoshop salt mines, I just can’t do twitch & click games comfortably, so turn-based combat is a huge win. Combine that with an interesting world, morally complex character choices, and fun writing, and I am a happy gal.
