Continuing the trend this week with an avalanche of free versions of games, here are three games with lites that are worth giving a try if you're looking for something new. Each game seems to have its fans...




Here's one that falls in the just-for-fun writeup category. How so? Well, this is a fairly enjoyable, very simple dodge-the-obstacles game that almost certainly will only appeal to the highly nostalgic, retro gaming crowd (of which I am the leader)...

I have fond memories of hours spent playing Activision's 8-bit, movie-inspired title Ghostbusters on my Apple II as a kid.  Some of you out there surely share these fond memories.  And so, it was with high hopes that I awaited the release of Ghostbusters for the iPhone after Sony Pictures Television's announcement of the forthcoming game early this year.  The game has arrived and, as my earlier post indicated, it has slimed the App Store...

Back in March we previewed Virtway's upcoming Graviton, an iPhone gravity game in the vein of classic Thrust.  The game has just arrived in the App Store [link], published by Chillingo...

Back in March, Shawn Kollat released a fun little game that we missed when it hit the App Store.  Race for Home [App Store] is the tranquil and surreal affair of guiding young Grace and her magic umbrella on her journey home...

Psychosis Studio has just released 3D Tunnel Vision [App Store] for the iPhone and iPod touch...

Back in February, HD Publishing released a free iPhone version of their highly rated mobile title Magnetic Joe [App Store], indicating that they wanted to introduce the title to the iPhone gaming community and then follow it up with the second and third installments as paid apps.  As promised, Magnetic Joe 2 [link] has just appeared in the App Store...

Not to make this the Friday of Upcoming iPhone Games...but Digital Chocolate has posted a video of their upcoming iPhone title California Gold Rush.  While details, at present, are scant, it looks something loosely like a cross between Boulder Dash and Oregon Trail...

In the nine months since the App Store went online, over 35,000 applications have been written for the iPhone.  Of these, the single largest category is games.  Lots and lots of games...which, of course, means lots and lots of takes on the same formula.  Match-three is likely the most repeated type, but not far behind are the "snake" games.  They have a simple premise: you're a snake.  Move about the playfield eating things, to grow in length, but don't eat your tail or bump into obstacles.  I own a camera that has a built-in snake game -- they're everywhere.  And the only real difference between them is just how much prettier one is than the next...

It's been a busy 24 hours in the App Store. A number of anticipated releases have been released into the app store including Fishing Cactus' maze / puzzle game Equilibrio [App Store]...

Casual Flyer 'Glyder' Lands in App Store

During the Game Developer's Conference late last month, Touch Arcade had the opportunity to sit down with Glu and spend some time with a number of their upcoming titles...

Stop me if you've heard this before: this game requires you to use the accelerometer to navigate your ball to the end goal. ..

Early this year, Mobigame released isometric 3D puzzle / maze game Edge [App Store].  We found it to be one of the best games in the App Store...

Earlier this month we took a look at Wooden Labyrinth 3D, a particularly well done take on the marble / labyrinth formula that differentiates itself from the herd by the inclusion of raised obstacles that must be jumped over with a shake of the iPhone or iPod touch.  The game also provides a 3D perspective that shifts with the tilt of your iPhone.  It plays well and “feels” right...

80s retro gaming nuts should enjoy LagMac Studios' recent release CuBert [App Store], a port of the 1982 arcade classic Q*bert for the iPhone...
