In honor of the summer vacations we’re sure many of you are taking, we did a short episode talking about our favorite touch screen games. We kept cost in mind and many of our suggestions are free. Listen to the episode for all the details but here are some links to the games we discuss. Click on the images for app details in the iTunes store.
Check out Deadmans Productions other productions here.
Check out all PopCap has to offer here (including one of our all time favorites, Plants vs Zombies.)
As a note, Elder Sign: Omens is now $6.99 US Dollars in the iTunes app store.
Check out the other offerings from Fantasy Flight Productions here.
Check out what else Simutronics has to offer here.
And in case you’ve never seen it, check out Wil Wheaton and friends as they play a live D&D game at PAX Prime 2011. I was in the audience for this one and it is hilarious (and totally NSFW).
As always, we’d love to hear your feedback on the episode. What are your favorite mobile and touch screen games? Are your experiences with these games different? Suggestions for Rhonda on how to play Rune Raiders? Leave a comment here or Drop us a Tweet @game_on_girl.

Regina and Rhonda
Regina is a gamer, writer, teacher, and podcaster living in the Pacific Northwest. She completed her Ph.D. in 2011 from Washington State University in Vancouver and continues to teach there part time. Regina’s research interests focus on women and technology, and her dissertation discusses female gamers and identity in digital role playing games. A lifelong geek and technology enthusiast, Regina recently started a Girls Who Code club in support of their mission to close the gender gap in technology.
To continue the conversations about gender and gaming that Regina started during her research, she started a podcast called Game on Girl. Called the “NPR of game podcasts” by Chris Brown of The Married Gamers, the podcast features women involved in the game industry, and tackles some of the complicated issues in the gaming community. Season 2 began in the spring of 2018 and will premiere new episodes monthly.
