The Guardian’s Games Blog recommends Kosmo Spin as one of the 10 best new smartphone games for winter commuting.
It’s not out til early December, but I had to include this lovely, idiosyncratic puzzler from Swedish studio Simogo. You’re a character named Nod who must save a small planet, populated by breakfast cereal people, from invading aliens. A flying saucer orbits the world chucking down balls, and you simply run around the surface heading them back into space, while collecting the globe’s endangered inhabitants. The visuals are beautiful, skilfully applying the currently trendy handicraft look to create a look that’s part Little Big Planet, part Katamari Damacy. Gameplay-wise, the ultra intuitive touchscreen controls – just swipe the screen to spin the planet – will remind mobile veterans of Gamevil’s legendary NOM; but others will just enjoy the immediacy of the set-up. And the music is lovely too. The perfect time-killing treat for style-conscious smartphone owners.

It’s a simple concept, though one with an air of quality similar to other casual iPhone hits like Angry Birds and Doodle Jump.

To say that Kosmo Spin is addicting would be an understatement.
Being a giant, beloved video game site has its downsides. For example, we sometimes neglect to give independent developers our coverage love (or loverage, if you will) as we get caught up in AAA, AAAA or the rare quintuple-A titles. To remedy that, we’re giving indies the chance to create their own loverage and sell you, the fans, on their studios and products. This week we talk with Simon Flesser, half of Simogo, the team behind the adorable Kosmo Spin.
