Seeing so many iPhone games, it's strange to see which ones gain traction and which don't. Here are Lite versions for a couple that we particularly liked but didn't seem to draw a large following.

  • igniteIgnite Lite - We described this as a lovely platformer that made great use of the iPhone's touch screen.

    The overall art style, music and atmosphere of Ignite really make it stand out. The game is surprisingly compelling and one we highly recommend.

    See our review and gameplay video.

  • popperPopper Lite! - Matching games are becoming a harder sell given the sheer volume of them in the App Store. A Clever Twist's Popper!, however, stood out as one we quite enjoyed.

    The basic mechanic in the game is to launch a colored pill from the bottom of the screen towards the top. If you manage to hit like-colored pills, those pills match and fall of the screen. You continue this process until you clear the board.

    Overall, a fun game that I ended up spending more time playing then I had intended.

    See our previous review and video.

    My review refuses to post in iTunes, but I have the full version of Popper. It's a nicely done game, but it feels very much like a 10 level demo. I finished all the levels within the first day I owned the game. Gameplay is fun, but not so compelling that I'd just want to play the same levels at the same difficulty level over and over again. I'm not regretful of the purchase. Two bucks is a fair price for an hour of entertainment. I'm just disappointed and sad there's not more to enjoy. Without more levels or otherwise compelling gameplay, I won't be able to keep the game on board for much longer.

    Also, the calibration feels off at times (mainly during the accelerometer controlled arrow levels). I found that the pops were not shooting directly out of the point of the arrow (which I believe they should or else why have an arrow at all?).

    Overall, a decent, cute, mostly polished game. But the shortage of levels is a real concern, especially given some of the amazing content being offered at similar prices throughout the App Store.

      I know it's off topic but I also can't seem to post reviews in iTunes. They appear for some apps but not for others and I don't know why. Not a big problem except I told a dev I posted a review and now it's not appearing no matter what I try. And yet I posted another review today for a different app and it appeared straight away. Reviews can be a big deal for devs in countries where only a few people might purchase their apps.
