The next Age of Empires is for mobile

A free-to-play, touch-based Age of Empires is exactly what none of us wanted but Microsoft is the latest in a long line of companies that can't resist chasing after the lucrative mobile market. This KLab-developed strategy title will hit iOS, Android, and Windows Phone in the summer. It's called Age of Empires: World Domination. Commit that name to memory, and stay away.

Monument Valley looks a bit like Fez x Echochrome photo
Monument Valley looks a bit like Fez x Echochrome
by Steven Hansen

That soothing music was nice before I go drive to the middle of nowhere to do my taxes. I don't have anything that will play Monument Valley (iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch), which is out now, but if I did, I would. Thankfully an Android release is coming soon.

I love the minimalist, colorful, MC Escher inspired architecture. And the upright bird people that look like plague doctors. So cute. 

If you have an iWhatever, maybe drop four bucks on this neat little game.
