Mobile Watch List - Cut the Rope: Time Travel, Bookworm Heroes, Fish Out of Water

Animal cruelty is on the docket!

This week's selections feature three games wherein animals are abused in various ways. But don't worry, no animals were harmed in the making of these games. Probably.

Cut the Rope: Time Travel (iOS, Android, Coming soon to WP8)

It may not seem like it, but feeding hard candy to an adorable creature named Om Nom is, in actuality, a form of abuse. And yet, he takes it. This time, the hungry fellow travels through a variety of time periods, each with its own twist on the Cut the Rope format. But, more often than not, you'll just be cutting ropes.

Bookworm Heroes (iOS, coming soon to Android)

The only thing more fun than a word game is one wherein you get to punch earthworms in the face for spelling really fancy words. Bookworm Heroes is a turn-based, asynchronous take on PopCap's long-running series. It's pretty enjoyable, though it does demand that you connect to Facebook in order to play with your friends. So if that terrifies you, look elsewhere.

Fish Out of Water (iOS, coming soon to Android)

From the creators of Jetpack Joyride and Fruit Ninja comes a game where you take aquatic animals and hurl them out of the water for very long distances—occasionally during a thunderstorm. Not super nice, but on the bright side, all of the creatures end up with nary a scratch and your performance gets rated by a bunch of crabs. And who doesn't like judgmental crabs?
