zenonia_titleGame developers seem to be releasing lite versions of their existing games left and right this week. Now is a very good time to try out some of these older iPhone games now that free versions are available if you hadn't picked them up or were on the fence before.

  • Zenonia Lite - Gamevil's epic action RPG, which was well received in our review, recently updated to address most problems, and still has an extremely active community of players on our forums.
  • Phaze Lite - A futuristic Wipeout-like velocity racer that provides a great sense of speed coupled with highly refined tilt controls.
  • Brothers In Arms Hour of Heroes Free - Gameloft's World War II third person shooter, the first of many games based on the same engine.
  • Let's Golf! Lite - Still one of my favorite games, Gameloft really sunk a hole in one with this one. As stated in my review, Let's Golf is on par with the PSP's Hot Shots Golf.

    Between these lite versions and the onslaught of 99 cent sales/games you can do plenty of gaming for next to nothing these days. After the purchase of the device, of course.

    I never realized how bad the controls were in Zenonia... it really does feel like a cheap cellphone port.

    Phaze is in the Wipeout genre. No one compared it to Wipeout. And i feel that it's decent on my 3G. I like Low Grav Racer (which is the same exact kind of game) but think that Phaze may be the better product. I just got the lite version and am sniping the full game.

    Man Phaze sucks. I guess I'll just wait for Galactic Racer. I'm so glad I didn't bite on this game when it first came out.

    Zenonia's controls really aren't bad. After 30 mins of play, you get used to them. In fact, despite not having a diagonal control I was happy to find that your character automacitally will walk around obstacles. So no need to hit down and right when walking into a wall.

    Like Barry says,
    Zenonia's controls are not bad. Just put some time to it.
    Although not perfect, I rarely have problems with it.

    People over look that Gamevil did a great job of optimizing the d-pad for the iPhone. It's easily one of the best d-pad in the app store. To call it a cheap port is a bit harsh.

    Once you get used to it, you'll see that the d-pad is one of the better solutions for this type of games. You don't want to be touching the screen covering close to half the screen with your finger, and that's while you're wondering if you touched the exact intended point or not. This method makes more sense with a stylus, but who uses a stylus for the iPhone?

    Also when the game becomes hectic during boss fights or when swarms of enemies surround you, a fairly skilled d-pad user would better ease out of the situation, then having to frantically touch here and there covering up the screen.
