lords of midnight logoThe Lords of Midnight ($4)

This is actually an update of an eighties classic, but you wouldn’t know it. Anyone who loves war gaming will find this blend of RPG and strategy wrapped in a fantasy cape, impossibly enticing. This adventure pits you against ‘Doomdark’ and his hordes of evil. Like any good game, it’s easy to pick up, but difficult to master. The stylish art is arresting, the storyline is captivating, and the transition to touch screen controls is surprisingly smooth.

Relax and unwind with more than 80 levels of gentle puzzle gameplay. The hand-painted art and the custom soundtrack show real craftsmanship. The puzzles are well thought out, carefully walking the tightrope between accessible and challenging. It’s an ideal game for your BlackBerry, as it’s easy to dip in and out. It’s also a great way to take your mind off work for a few minutes and just chill out.

sprinkle logoSprinkle ($2)

With an aesthetic that was popularized by Angry Birds, and gameplay that’s reminiscent of Where’s My Water, this game is accessible for all ages. The idea is to fire your water cannon and extinguish a fire, but there are all kinds of cogs, boulders, and traps to puzzle your way past. It’s another entry in the ever-growing physics-puzzler category, but if you like that kind of thing, then you’ll definitely like this.

If you’re wondering about the name of this game then you obviously don’t fire enough lasers at alien spaceships. This is twin stick, neon shooting, madness in a wire frame arena and it’s filled with a surprising array of enemies, all intent on putting you in a brightly-colored space graveyard. It’s not gentle – you’ll need some serous skills to make it through and claim a place on the online leaderboards. There are four modes to test your mettle.

bomberman vs zombies blackberry appBomberman vs Zombies (Free)

The zombie apocalypse is upon us in this addictive blast of action gaming. You need to blow up all the shambling undead or find the key for the escape hatch to progress from each level. You’ll face off against three types of zombies and find a range of power-ups and bombs to help or hinder you. It’s a fun twist on the classic Bomberman-style game.

angry pigs icon blackberry app gameAngry Pigs – Free (Free)

Believe it or not, Angry Birds is not available for BlackBerrys (just the PlayBook tablet). Luckily, you can have similar fun with Angry Pigs. This clone challenges you to catapult pigs at structures containing wolves. You need to dispatch all the wolves to progress and you’ll earn extra points for maximum destruction.

cut it icon blackberry game appCut It! ($1)

Another classic mobile game that you can only get on the PlayBook is Cut the Rope, but Cut It! manages to emulate the gameplay and strike a similarly cute visual style. The dog wants his snack and you have to guide it into his waiting jaws by cutting the thread. The simple premise builds to create some serious puzzles and you have the added challenge of collecting the stars.

brain cube reloaded blackberry game appBrain Cube Reloaded (Free)

Just like the original Brain Cube, your aim is to guide a rectangular character through a grid layout to reach a specific exit point. The simple controls work well on the BB and the sparse levels ramp up in difficulty as you progress. It starts out deceptively simple and turns into a real puzzler.

dark galaxy icon blackberry game appDark Galaxy (Free)

Fancy embarking on an intergalactic battle for domination? This is a massively multiplayer online game of sorts which casts you as a space marine. It is text-based, a bit like Mafia Wars, and the focus is on completing missions and destroying enemies by spending your resources wisely. It is surprisingly addictive and the battles and alliances with other players give it an extra edge. There are a lot of variations on this so if you prefer military, modern-day styling, or a fantasy setting, you can find them in the shape of Forces of War and Age of Legends.
