Real gaming on mobile platforms is nonexistent. There are only shitty sickeningly cute looking casual games.  (and kairosoft)
If anyone knows otherwise, please do tell...

I really want that one as a "when". I want "grubs", and "virgin woman" to turn into a dragon. and monkey children to suddenly sprout wings. And I want the Dwarven Mutant Academy to only gain their powers upon reaching puberty. I also have a whole host of odd creatures that only make sense if I divide them into children and adults.

Also, tadpoles.

KoDP. Like in that other thread, is epic as DF. Though not very similar. It is on the iPad. And sadly only games people make on the iOS nowadays are arcade :/

KoDP is barely even an iOS game in the true sense of the word; it's a port of a PC game to iOS, it's just an older game that didn't need much in terms of changes.

Well portable gaming devices for the adult crowd do basically exist for Toilet Gaming. You play them to pass time whilst on the John (or on a bus I guess). So they tend to be relatively short games because you can only sit there for so long.
