On the Cheap – Bobbing


On the Cheap is Squinshee’s regular gander at inexpensive or free games.

Bobbing (iOS, Android)
Developer: Little Bobby Games
Price: $1

There’s nothing odd, at least to me, about reading Dante’s Inferno on a Kindle. The ability for new technology to adapt old art grants us easy access to a sprawling history of entertainment. Conversely, presenting new material through dated mediums sounds counterintuitive. For instance, listening to Skrillex on vinyl. Some people do it even though it seems physically impossible. You’re telling me that this Crosley can make my apartment go WUB-WUB with a needle scraping a spinning disk? I thought records were relegated to Frank Sinatra, like dubstep to mp3s.


  • About the Author

    Calvin Holt never stops thinking about games. His mind is an unkempt destination, replete with twenty-sided dice, internalized button sequences for combos, and that infectious "Treasure Chase" tune from Rayman Origins. Squinshee aims to organize, rather than temper, these thoughts.
