2K Play Goes Mobile in 2012
2K Play announced this month that there will be a bunch of new games this summer for mobile platforms. Some of the highlights are a new Comedy Central game, Carnival Games MiniGolf and a puzzle game called GridBlock. Some of these games are bite sized, spouting short play sessions, allowing for gamers to pick up a game for a short amount of time and get in some fun. Others will allow for a lot more in-depth and long lasting gaming experiences. Mobile gaming, especially with the popularity of iOS and Android devices, are largely becoming some of the biggest venues for games for the more casual crowd. You can check out these games on 2K Play’s Facebook page and look forward to these games later this summer. The press release is posted bellow.

Hilarious hijinks and state-of-the-art animation put this game into a fun cat-e-gory of its own.

Teleport through gravity-defying levels, maneuver around mind-numbing mazes and don’t get sucked into the black hole!
- Herd, Herd, Herd™ – It’s pen-demonium at the Haywire Homestead! Help Farmer Jed herd clucking chickens, panicky pigs, spunky sheep and crazy cows into their pens before time runs out. As you progress, keep your eyes peeled for the sly fox and don’t catch chicken pox!
- Carnival Games® MiniGolf – You may have played golf before but you’ve never played anything like Carnival Games MiniGolf. If you’re ready to journey back to Medieval Times, have a shootout in the Wild West and walk the plank in Pirate’s Delight – all for the sake of sinking a putt – then step right up for a hole-in-fun!
