My go-to mobile game for time-filling fun used to be Drop 7. Then it was Threes. These days it’s Sage Solitaire, a new riff on solitaire from the ever-interesting developer Zach Gage. I’m making pairs, straights and flushes, often while listening to a podcast. I’m hooked!
People with iPads, here’s your new “what should I play on my next airplane flight/long car ride?” game. It’s part roguelike. It’s part tower defense. It was born on PC. It survived its port to tablets. It requires brains and reflexes. And it’s also really good.
Five bucks spent and an hour in, I’m having a very good time with Lara Croft GO, the new mobile Tomb Raider spin-off that came out a few hours ago. It’s turn-based. It’s full of tomb raiding.

The really cool roguelike/dungeon-crawler/tower-defense PC game Dungeon of the Endless is coming to iPad this summer, according to a press release. It’ll include the game’s two PC expansions. No firm release date yet.

If you're having trouble downloading anything on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, you're not alone, as the App Store and iTunes has been down for several hours. Given Apple earned $4.8 billion from the two storefronts last quarter, you'd imagine it'll be up real soon.
Simon Pierro, a German magician, was on The Ellen Show last night. He's famous for doing all his magic tricks on an iPad using certain apps and merging reality with virtual reality. He's a tech wizard!
