With freemium style elements, this Kairosoft game is all about building up a resort while catching and taming a variety of different animals. It's an interesting mishmash.

I play games on my iPhone a lot, as I’m sure many of you reading this do. The thing is, while many iOS games are great in their own right and function well for gaming in small bursts or extended sessions, there aren’t a whole heck of a lot that can be picked up, played, and stopped at the drop of a hat. Oh sure most can be suspended but I’m talking about games that actually allow you to quit entirely and come right back to where you left off no matter how long that may take. Games that auto-save constantly, can be saved at any time with a single button press, stuff like that. Here are our picks for four of the best.

Penny Arcade The Game: Gamers vs. Evil
Most of Playdek’s card games fall into this category but I’ve chosen this one because it’s the most recent. And because I happen to really like it. Gamers vs. Evil tracks progress in each match, however many there might be at once spread out over single and multiplayer modes. This means you can play a single hand or even stop in the middle of one, quit for whatever reason, and then start it right back up again from wherever it left off. It’s as perfect for micro-gaming sessions as it is for lengthy ones.

Junk Jack
I’ve been thoroughly enjoying this 2D Minecraft-like since its release for many reasons, but it’s the save system that’s always impressed me the most. Pausing the game at any point will save progress automatically, so stopping at a moment’s notice is never a problem. Even more impressive is the way Jack’s inventory can be saved and transferred between worlds, so even if you get tired of your current game you can always start a new one and keep all your cool stuff.

Game Dev Story
Kairosoft’s first iOS release continues to be their greatest as far as I’m concerned, but really all of their games are perfect for quick starts and stops of game time. That big Save button sitting on the main screen for every single one of their titles that saves progress instantly makes it incredibly easy to stop what you’re doing and get back to actual work. Not that I’m condoning that sort of behavior, of course.

Zenonia 5
Much like Kairosoft, GAMEVIL also has the handy Save button down pat. Their action RPG series is plenty of fun and this most recent release is absolutely packed with features, and yet they’ve (thankfully) kept the one that makes it the easiest to play whenever and wherever. It’s comforting to know I can tap once to save and then bolt off of my train without having to worry about losing all that progress.

As with virtually every Kairosoft game on the App Store, Pocket Academy could use a bit more of a tutorial. Those who stick with it will find an experience just as rewarding, entertaining and addicting as any of their previous titles, however.

If you haven’t already played Game Dev Story then you probably shouldn’t. It’s not that it’s a bad game, quite the contrary actually, it’s that once you get started playing you’ll likely never stop. Now chances of ever getting actual work done again have become even more dire, as franchise developer Kairosoft has officially launched Waiwai! The Game Dealer in Japan.

Where Game Dev Story put players in the roles of a studio boss trying to make an amazing game, The Game Dealer tasks you with getting the products off store shelves and into the homes of consumers. Unfortunately, our Japanese skills are virtually nonexistent, but it seems the game will have players managing aspects of a game store such as inventory and employees, while also trying to come up with ways to entice new customers and drive up sales. It may sound mundane on paper, but then so did Game Dev Story, and that one is chock full of win.

While there’s no word if The Game Dealer will see play outside of Japan it’s a safe bet to assume that it will. Kairosoft has already localized Game Dev Story for English-speaking audiences, and is currently hard at work getting Game Dev Story 2 ready for an American launch. We’d say there’s about a 95 percent chance that The Game Dealer will make it to other markets, but you never know in the crazy world of app development what will happen next.

We’re also hoping that The Game Dealer is just as wacky and irreverent as Game Dev Story. I mean, in that game would hire an actual, honest-to-goodness code monkey, so please tell me there’s going to be some sort of equivalent in The Game Dealer. At any rate we’re very excited about the release of this new game, and only hope that we won’t have to learn Japanese in order to play it.

Instead of being productive in any facet of my life today, I played Game Dev Story. I didn't even shower. If that's not an endorsement, I don't know what is.
