UK based independent Game Developer Fat Pebble announced plans to partner with Zynga to launch Clay Jam, a family friendly puzzle game on the iOS and Android platforms. Fat Pebble chose to make Clay Ham completely out of modeling clay. Do you know how much work that represents? Clearly they have invested a lot of love and labor in this game. Fat Pebble won’t reveal the launch date yet. You can keep track of Clay Jam’s progress at Fat Pebble’s site:
Here’s Fat Pebble’s description of Clay Jam:
“Clay Jam is a family-friendly action game set in a world made entirely of modelling clay. The once-beautiful land of Wobble Bottom has been ravaged by the fearsome Bully Beasts. The Clay Hills have been sucked dry and the Squashy Monsters all enslaved. This world needs a hero – someone strong, someone stony, someone who can roll…
Behold! Fat Pebble – the first ever pebble superhero (*)!
Use your finger to gouge grooves in the ground and guide Fat Pebble down five fantastical hills. Squash as many monsters as you can while avoiding anything that’s larger than you. As you squash things, you grow – Katamari-style – making you go faster and letting you crush bigger and bigger things.
At the bottom of each hill lurks a unique, terrible Bully Beast. By growing as big as you can and building up your speed, you’ll knock the Beast flying – the further you can fling the demon, the closer to freedom you’ll take Wobble Bottom and all its inhabitants.”

Have you ever wanted to conjure up wind or tornadoes with the stroke of your finger? In daWindci, a mobile game from German based Mimimi Productions, you slide or swipe your finger on the screen to generate wind to power a hot air balloon through 45 levels of the game. You can even cause rain to fall and tornadoes to whirl. We think daWindci offers fairly unique game play.
Here’s the complete daWindci description from Mimimi Productions:
In daWindci, you take control of the wind that shall lead a homemade hot air balloon through 45 levels. Therefore a sensitive multi-touch gesture control is required, because sharp cliffs, wind tunnels, dangerous electric fields and a lot of incredible inventions are standing between you and the success of your mission. With your fingertip you create hurricanes, short blasts or powerful thunderbolts to push your balloon forward. As a sovereign of the weather, you open doors with the wind or you blow down heavy levers, just to help your balloon through the mountains. On your way, a lot of mysterious physics puzzles have to be solved.
For the 5-8 hours of playtime, the developers of Mimimi Productions made a point of creating a nice mixture of charming graphics, a meditative soundtrack and a challenging gameplay. They also integrated a special social network connection into the game: Any results of daWindci — as highscores or the design of the balloon, which can be changed in a special shop — can be shared with friends on Facebook. So the game isn’t just challenging yourself — you also can challenge your friends online. With their first commercial game, the developers therefore combine an entertaining gameplay with the latest mobile- and online-features.

Playberries and Massive Photon jointly released The Skull, a platform game for the IPhone, IPad and IPod Touch. The Skull will drain $0.99 from your wallet.
In The Skull you are dead. Get over it. However your skull came loose from the rest of your skeleton which scattered throughout the land. You must shoot the skull from a cannon and then collect as many skeleton body parts before your forward movement stops. You must tap the screen to keep the skull moving forward traveling as far as possible as measured in meters. At first we thought the game was kind of dull but it grows on you.
