I grew up in the country, so I was always going to like Farm Frenzy. Seeing the ducks and livestock roam around while you focus on making money and expanding your agricultural domain is highly addictive and enjoyable. Collect eggs, make butter, cheese and cakes and shear those sheep, then get all your produce to market and equip your farm with all the necessary equipment and structures you could ever need to keep your little place in the country thriving. Ahh, takes me back...
The Tiny Bang Story just makes me want to curl up in bed and play for days. It's an immersive little world where you sift through clues in the Hobbiton-esque hand-drawn world and solve puzzles to help rebuild your little civilization, destroyed by asteroids. You'll have to strain your brain a bit if you're going to achieve your mini-game goals though, but the beautiful illustrations and enchanting music will lull you into playing for much longer than you had planned. If rain is forecasted for the weekend, you could do worse than installing The Tiny Bang Story and disappearing until Monday morning.
If you've come fresh from watching Gravity in the cinema and want to get your space on, Planets Defense will keep you on the edge of your seat. It's a 3D space defense strategy game where you'll be building fortifications to defend your planet at the same time as planning to take over others. But you'll need resources and technology if you want to succeed, so scavenge what you can, mine what you need, build atmospheres and arm your fleet for the incoming invasion. And once that's over, it's time to roll out, galactic style, and break new ground.
FireJumpers: Wildfire RTS
It's Fire Prevention Week, in case you didn't know, so while you're boning up on fire safety information, take a quick minute to install FireJumpers and see if you've got what it takes to battle real-time fires in this strangely addictive strategy game. Fight blazes all over the world, from Central park to Catalonia. You can even install the free version to get a feel for it first. If the gameplay wasn't enough to drag you in, the fact the developer studio donates a portion of all profits to support volunteer firefighters should be. So get on it!
