Platinum Egg Award Winner - Best iPad Games and iPhone GamesBig Goose Egg is all about bringing you great games… even if… no, especially if they belong to another developer or company. Sure we want you to check out our games like Guano, H2Whoooa!, Newton’s Nightmare, Vision Impossible, and others. But every month (or so), Big Goose Egg Games issues a Platinum Egg Award that goes to the best up-and-coming iPhone or iPad (or occasionally Android) games. Most often, they are free. And for sure, my kids have to like them. The winner for the month of November is Brain Drain by Rowdy Apps.

I call Brain Drain one of those “potato chip type” games. You know… where you think you will only have so much? First, I was drawn in by the name and the icon. And I thought, “Let me just quick check this game out.”

When I first opened it, I was like, “Meh. Graphics aren’t that great, but I’ll try it.”

Simple gameplay – tap where you want the ball to go until you get to the goal. Even simpler graphics – I mean, we’re talkin’ a ball and moving blocks – that simple.

The first two rounds, I thought, “Oh. This is kind of cute, actually. Simple, and doesn’t require a lot of time to do.”

Urrrnnt! Wrong! Sure one game doesn’t take long at all, but I got completely sucked in.

Brain Drain is extremely engaging and challenging. Here’s why I think this is:

  • It is the opposite of what it appears… you think it’s going to be easy (Nope). You think ultra-simple graphics equals a throw-away game you won’t play very much (Nope),
  • Since each round is so fast, there is always time to “try just one more round” (i.e. potato chip phenomenon), and
  • If you lose one round, you have to redo the round before it, before you can retry the one you missed.

Brain Drain Game Wins November 2012 Platinum Egg Award - Best iPhone gameThat last point is key. I was quite frustrated with the game itself the first couple of times it put me back at the beginning of the previous level. But then I was more incentivized to solve each level. The frustration turned on myself… sort of like “You idiot! Why didn’t you concentrate and get it done right the first time?!” That made me more up for the challenge than before.

Now, add a group element to it and WOW! When you and your friends or family each take turns trying to get further, there’s a lot of shouting :) It’s hilarious, actually.

The negatives? Just one- the music. I play it on silent and it is great.

You won’t think it at first, but Brain Drain is truly awesome. And you have no skills unless you can pass the growing ball in level 4 or 5.

Check it out, I dare you. [insert evil laugh here]

Brain Drain – “I betcha can’t play just one” .

One of Big Goose Egg’s most popular games, Guano! The Bird Pooping Game just got a facelift. In addition to the new icon (see below), there are now 4 new characters. Three of those characters are available in the usual way – through the “Select Character” screens. But one, in particular, is hidden… and it’s not even a bird. The only way to unlock the secret character is to do something within in the app – a simple hand gesture in the right place at the right time… find it if you can.

Guano! - The Bird Pooping Game from Big Goose EggCheck out the Guano “apes flinging poo” video, if you haven’t seen it already. Some of the comments received from users included making a bigger poop splash, adding sound for missed shots, and adding a different sound for hitting people when they’re looking up. Some of you have even suggested some sort of gurgling, gagging sound as if it got in their mouth! You people are sick :)

Here are some of the things added to the latest version of Guano!:

  • New, improved icon
  • Three new bird characters – a cardinal, a raven, and a falcon
  • Improved instructions (meaning… there are instructions now)
  • A sound for missed hits
  • Improved scoring (to allow you to unlock more things faster (for FREE)
  • Fewer ads and less intrusive ads
  • And a TOP SECRET character hidden amongst the game and menu screens

Upgrade to the latest version of Guano! now.

Vision Impossible Slider Puzzles for the iPhone and iPadYou’re not ready for this… You probably can’t handle it. Vision Impossible is the most challenging slider puzzle game you will find.

Choose 9, 16, or 25 tiles. But it’s not just the number of tiles that makes these puzzle games tough…

They’re timed. (unless you Wuss Out and turn that feature off)

And it is not the time that makes these puzzle games insane…

It’s the actual images themselves. It is called “Vision Impossible” for a reason. The puzzle pulls from optical illusions, symmetric art, and line art.

Platinum Egg Award Winner - Best iPad Games and iPhone GamesThe fact is, you care about finding good games, right? Who cares which indie developer or which company made them? You’re looking for the best iOS games. Well, every month, Big Goose Egg Games issues a Platinum Egg Award that goes to the best up-and-coming iPhone or iPad (or occasionally Android) games. Most often, they are free. And for sure, my kids have to like them. The winner for the month of September is Go Bananas by MoKool Games.

Go Bananas is one of those games that starts out seeming like it is going to be ultra-easy. You are a monkey (no offense) trying to use your sling shot to get bunches of bananas. Pretty simple at first. So, simple, in fact, for a few seconds it had me wondering if I’d ever actually lose. But soon enough, coconut bombs start appearing interspersed between the bunches of bananas. Soon enough, it gets difficult. I found myself playing it again and again.

Go Bananas Monkey Game Wins September 2012 Platinum Egg Award - Best iPhone gameBut what about the kids? (I have six, so there’s plenty of people to test games on) I noticed something interesting… my youngest son had enough early success in the game (the easy part for me and my older children) to want to keep playing. I know many game designers try to find that sweet-spot of giving people enough success to feel good, but not too much to think it’s too easy. Go Bananas has found that sweet-spot. For kids and adults alike. Check it out.

Go Bananas – it’s fun and it’s FREE.

Newton’s Nightmare is one of Big Goose Egg’s most anticipated games for the iPhone and iPad. You are Sir Isaac Newton trapped in a space with projectile killer apples.

Your job? Avoid the apples.

Sounds simple enough, especially if you’re the very scientists who described the Laws of Motion. But not quite.

Check out this funny, horror-spoof-trailer of Newton’s Nightmare:

Platinum Egg Award Winner - Best iPad Games and iPhone GamesBig Goose Egg Games is all about bringing you the best free mobile games, whether they are ours or not. Every month, we issue a Platinum Egg Award that goes to the best up-and-coming iPhone or Android games. Most often, they are free. And for sure, my kids have to enjoy them. The winner for the month of April is Derby Quest Horse Racing by Tapsy.

Derby Quest Horse Racing lets you raise horses from babies up to derby champions. Raise them, feed them, breed them and race them. You can build a stable of several horses… even tens… I guess even hundreds (I’m not sure of the upper limit if there is one). But either way, it’s fun for everyone.

Derby Quest Horse Racing Wins April 2012 Platinum Egg Award - Best iPhone gameDerby Quest lets you control your horse during the races too. There’s the slower pace of feeding and maintaining your horses, making sure you’re keeping them in tip-top shape for the races. But then, you get the faster pace of an actual race or qualifying laps. Derby Quest Horse Racing has awesome graphics & because of that, is not formatted for older devices. So, double-check their description for whether or not your device is supported.

If so, get Derby Quest – it’s fun and it’s FREE.

Platinum Egg Award Winner - Best iPad Games and iPhone GamesThe Platinum Egg Award goes to the best up-and-coming (and often free) iPhone or Android games that my kids enjoy. The winner for the month of March is Ninja Bugs Plus by One Haze.

Ninja Bugs Plus takes the best of Fruit Ninja and the best of Ant Smasher and combines them into something better. Practice your crazy ninja skills with your sword slicing and dicing gestures. And you don’t just slice bugs. You also slice the pieces left over from the previous swing of the sword.

Ninja Bugs Plus Wins March 2012 Platinum Egg Award - Best iPhone gameAlong the way you have to avoid the bug zappers… because they’re also sword zappers. The pace of the game separates it from the others by adding an element of (good) stress as you near your high score. Ninja Bugs Plus has 4 modes to choose from – No Zappers, Sting Mode, Bug Attack Arcade Mode, and Bug Blast Classic Mode.

Try Ninja Bugs Plus – it’s FREE.
