The Monday Musing - The iPhone and iPad games every Twin Peaks fan should play

Well Twin Peaks finished last night. Did you watch it? I didn't, I don't really care about anything. I hope you enjoyed it if you did though, and that you're not pining too strongly for a thing now forever lost. Wait a minute though, if you are, maybe I can help?

After all, Monday is when we have a muse here at AppSpy, so I guess I could have a muse about the best games to play on your iPhone or iPad if you like Twin Peaks? You know, surreal experiences with unreliable narrators that sway between kooky weird and what on earth is going on weird?

I'll just do it, no need to reply. As usual you can click on the emboldened names of the games below to download them from the App Store. And if you've got your own suggestions, lob them into the comments at the bottom of the article. You know you want to.

Year Walk

Simogo's magnum opus. A bizarre wander through Swedish mythology that's engaging and often unsettling. From the minimalist art style to the strange story, everything here is unlike anything else you've played before. And I mean that in the most positive way. I don't know why you haven't played this yet, but please go and do it now. Please.

Her Story

As unreliable narrators go, this one's pretty darn unreliable. A story told in snatches of video content from police interviews. It's part Google search, part TV show, and it's utterly brilliant. Full of twists and turns, all of which you discover at your own pace. It's heartbreaking in places, but will keep you playing until the very end.

Puzzle Agent 2

Bit of a leftfield choice, but that's what we're here for. Before Telltale got famous for licensed properties, it made some really interesting stuff of its own. And this is one of them. You should play both of the games really, but this is probably the better of the two. You're an FBI agent trying to figure out a strange case in an even stranger world. Warning though, there will be some maths.
