We came across many great games at Casual Connect San Francisco, a casual games trade show this week including Mosaique, a puzzle game from Winning Blimp. You must clear all tiles in each level by rotating the cursor around the play area and shooting (the tiles). Clear blocks of the same color.
You will need to pay attention to the shot gauge which you charge by clearing tiles of the same color but if the gauge falls to zero the game ends. If the gauge hits 100% you can clear tiles of any color. Mosaique perplexes us, in a good way. Puzzle lovers will enjoy Mosaique which costs $0.99 and can be played on iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
Let’s hear it for Upper West Side (NYC) indie game developer No Crusts Interactive and their game Williamspurrrrg out exclusively on the iPad for $1.99.
Williamspurrrrg HD features hipster cats who live in Williamsburg (Brooklyn) NY, the Hipster capital of the world according to some folks.
You must decorate the cats with mustaches, glasses and cool accessories like hats usually using a touch or simultaneous multi-touch on the iPad by dragging the item above the nose, over the eyes or around the neck of the feline. Two or more humans can play it or one dextrous person can give it a whirl. Everyone will enjoy Williamsprrrrg except maybe hipster mice.
Montreal based Adrenaline Entertainment released Blackout, an iOS game based on their popular arcade game, features a race of funny looking Googabonga creatures.

Who eats burgers? We don’t but apparently aliens do at least in the fun game called Aliens Need Burgers from California based Pick Up and Play available for free on both iOS and Android.
Aliens Need Burgers Download Links:
In Aliens Need Burgers you defend the earth from hungry alien actively invading our planet. You direct an outward bound satellite laser weapon by tapping on each of the advancing alien space vessels. The number of alien craft increases but so does the number of earth friendly vehicles like space shuttles and satellites. You lose a life when you destroy the wrong vehicle or the alien ships get close enough direct a tractor beam which pulls up the cows.
Kids and families will enjoy this game while adults looking for a more violent game action should look elsewhere. Aliens Need Burgers could help children enhance their hand eye coordination. Alien Need Burgers plays better on larger devices due to the dark space background.
