Thanks to this week's RSS sponsor, 2px and their iPhone game, Fingeric. Fingeric is a digital dexterity game -- digital as in fingers, mind you -- that uses several touchscreen gestures in concert to test how quick your fingers are. It reminds me a bit of Warioware crossed with Whac-A-Mole. Fingeric is mindless fun, perfect for zoning out on the subway or while waiting for a friend.
I checked out their other games too...Rolo, a puzzle game, ended up being fun and irritating (in a good way...like the Rubik's Cube). Both Rolo and Mastermind, 2px's game based on the board game of the same name, have favorable reviews on the iTunes Store.(link) [ Full story from kottke.org ]
