10 Weirdest iOS Games
I want to preface this article by saying this isn't a “best of” list. This article is focusing on the top 10 weirdest games you can find in the App Store. And there are a lot of weird freaking games in the App Store. But the 10 we have listed here are the weirdest ones we've played. Good, bad? Doesn't matter. They're all weird. Let's check 'em out.
Gauge - Game
In Gauge - Game you press the screen to fill up the gauge meter without letting it hit the edges. As you're doing this, the screen will change colors, text will pop up and the music will always change to try and keep you distracted. It's like some sick, twisted CIA entry test. It's stupid and it's weird. But the music kicks ass!
It's like Robotron 2084, only you're a Minotaur! This update to the 1991 Amiga classic has 100 levels with great controls. Run around shooting weird things while saving goats and other animals. OK, whatever. It's totally weird, but totally fun to play.
Organ Trail: Director's Cut
Try and survive a zombie apocalypse in this throwback to Oregon Trail. Fight the undead as you also fight starvation, disease and everything else that can kill you when the dead come back to life. It's the weirdest zombie apocalypse game out there, one that will have you scratching your head as you run for your life.
What is The Incident? No, really. What is it? I have no idea. This weird retro game has you climbing on piles of falling junk until you get high enough to reach The Incident. There are seven levels in Story Mode but the game gets really old after a while. Jump on falling junk and hope none of it hits you in the head and kills you. Maybe The Incident is the game laughing at you for spending a dollar to play it.
Karoshi is so weird it's actually good. Instead of keeping Karoshi, a burned out Japanese worker who wants to end it all, alive, your goal is to kill him. That's right, your goal in Karoshi is to kill the main character, not keep him alive. Do that by solving the tricky puzzles as you try and find a way to terminate him. It's weird and it's also surprisingly difficult. Who knew it was that hard to kill yourself in a video game?
OK, I have no idea what the developers were thinking when they made this game. Play as Keiko, a girl who was kidnapped and tortured out in the woods. At least that's what I made the plot to be out of the cartoon storyboards at the beginning. Now you've got to try and maneuver your way out of each level as you're tied to a cross. What the hell? This game is way too weird.
Monsters Ate My Condo
Monsters Ate My Condo is a top 10 weird game because it's stupid, silly and really, really weird. It's also a lot of fun. Make combos out of the falling colors and feed them to the monsters on screen. Powerups, combos and strange events are always occurring on screen, so you'll never get bored. You'll just wonder what weird monster is going to pop up on screen next.
Pizza Vs. Skeletons
Why pizza versus skeletons? I guess a better question would be, "Why not?" If you're going to go the really weird route, you may as well put together the weirdest combination possible. You can upgrade and decorate your pizza (gave mine a top hat) as you steamroll your way over skeletons and other undead creatures. The graphics are actually really cool and the gameplay is solid. Sometimes weird just works.
Ok, what the f@*^ am I playing? I'm controlling a bear as he shifts, accelerates and steers through a forest while collecting food. It has terrible graphics, the controls suck and it's the dumbest, weirdest idea for a game ever. Yet I can't stop playing it. If a real bear was driving a car, he would actually drive it as bad as the bear in this game. I'm still shaking my head at this one. What's next in our top 10 weirdest game list? Flying horses?
Robot Unicorn Attack
Robot Unicorn Attack is hands down the weirdest game I have ever played in my entire life. This endless runner has you controlling a robot unicorn as he jumps and flies through a rainbow filled world while Erasure's "Always" plays in the background. It is so, so, so stupid. And so weird. And I can't stop playing it. Alwaaaaaays I wanna be with you and make belieeeeeeeve with you! C'mon, ya bunch of weirdos! Sing along!
