The other day I picked up Junk Jack on iOS after hearing it was a good Terraria clone for the iPhone. After playing it a bit I didn't really see the appeal. The last mobile game I played quite a bit of was Spaceward Ho on the iPhone.

I am interested in checking out interesting Mobile games but don't find the iTunes top rated games to be interesting enough to warrant an install, even the free ones. Because of that, I am wondering if you have been playing anything you might recommend?

Really the only mobile game I'm playing right now is Candy Crush Saga (just beat level 155).

NOOOOO ADYM! NOT YOU TOO! We've lost a lot of good people to the Candy Crush menace.

Hmmm maybe I should start that up. I tried once and tossed it not knowing what the craze was about.

Ok, installing.

Yeah, I'm a goner. Waiting for FB friends to give me tickets so I continue lol.

Jon, the first few levels are Bejeweled Blitzy, but once you get past those, it becomes an addictive puzzle game.

I'll give it a shot and report back.

It starts asking you for either money, or for you to share it with your Facebook friends to get more turns. You are locked out of playing the game for a limited amount of time before you pay them or spam people. I can't support that kind of evil.

Well you either charge people for the game or go freemium. I dont agree w those methods but it pays the bills. That said "waiting games" are fairly boring for the most part, I think anyway.

I have a friend who would seriously stop a conversation because he got more Candy Crush moves.

In other news, to answer the question at hand: Ridiculous Fishing on iOS. This game is seriously amazing. Way more fun than I would ever expect from a fishing game.

Oh yeah, i heard about that one. Checking it out.

I actually picked up tiny tower again recently. My iPod touch died, and so I switched to using my wife's old iPhone and was surprised to see the game remembered my tower when I installed it again.

The other day I also dusted off my Gameboy DS and picked up a Chrono Trigger save file that was near the end of the game but still had several side missions to complete. It was nice revisiting some familiar places.

I have been playing Candy Crush and I will say it has a bit more depth than a vanilla Bejewled. I can see where people drop money on this but i have zero desire to do so. Wouldnt have a problem laying them $5 for the game though but i cant justify .99 cents 5,000 times for extra turns.

I've never put money into Candy Crush. I just wait when I run out of lives. Throttles my addiction I suppose.

Yeah, it sort of stops when I have been playing a bit "too long."
