The iTunes App Store just landed and there are lots of games out there. I doubt anyone has had a chance to experience them all–we here at Touch Arcade surely haven’t. It’s been a rather busy day.
That said, in my admittedly limited expierience of the full game catalog, here at the close of the iPhone 3G / iPhone 2.0 launch day, I must point to Cube Runner [App Store] as the best value title I’ve yet encountered on the App Store. It’s free. And it’s fun.
The author Andy Qua describes Cube Runner:
Cube Runner is a game for the iPhone and iPod Touch where the aim is to fly your ship across a terrain littered with Cubes. No-one knows how the cubes got there but you need to get through them.
- Fast 3D graphics
- Intuitive controls – use the built-in accelerometer to fly across the terrain.
- Downloadable Layout Packs – Create your own layouts and share them.
As the YouTube video illustrates, the graphics are simple. The gameplay is moreso. But it’s amazing fun. Don’t miss it.
