    Hey guys, I have been picking up a lot of games recently. Are there any games out there that have great gameplay with great graphics for a mobile device?

    I really like Dr. Awesome and NGmoco:)'s games. I'm going to pick up Rolando on release, but I was interested in some games that will blow the socks off my friends who say the iPhone has rubbish games.

    Thanks for any help.

    Well Hero of Sparta is probably the most impressive looking game.

    I like to use Dizzy Bee to show off, or Dizzy2 now.

    Smule's Ocarina is a cool app to show off.

    I actually have Hero of Sparta and am really digging it so far. I also have smule's ocarina. I may look into Dizzy Bee 2.

    Super monkeyball has really hooked my mate who is a Nokia die-hard fan.
    I would also demo Dropship, Trace, and Jellycar too. Fastlane is a little too technical for showing half-drunk mates but Ferrari might be a good choice.

    brothers in arms and hero of sparta deffinitly, when rolando's released that too, i also think that when metal gear solid comes out in 2009 that will be a hit with your friends

    I typically show off X-Plane or HoS ... probably going to show off X-Plane Helicopter & Airliner. Ferrari GT too, but NFS:U might overrun it depending on controls.

    My lady friend likes Topple :D

    But usually the rest of my friends gather around the phone and play QuickDraw. Whenever I try to show off a game with flashy graphics, it doesn't beat one with great gameplay.

    Asphalt4/really any other racing game is fun to show off. Lots of my friends w/o iPods or iPhones aren't used to the touch screen, so I like letting them use accelerometer games and they seem to love 'em. Brothers in Arms is fun and it's one of the high quality games most people will love right when they start playing.

    The one good thing about Kroll is its graphics - definitely an impressive graphical display despite lame gameplay

    Show off to guys/gamers - Hero of Sparta. Graphics are killer, and game play is pretty good. It will impress. Most gamers recognize the technical merit of the iPhone, when shown this and also some short comings (read: buttons).

    Show off to girls, or non-gamers - Toy Bot Diaries. Cutesy graphics, music, fun storyline and easy enough for them to pick up and play. Really nice use of tilt/touch controls tends to impress, as well. Ever since my wife first saw this game, she's referred to my iPhone as a pocket Wii.

    another vote for ferrari GT!

    Really diverse environments, great detail and it looks especially awesome with bumper view.. although I only see it when replaying my race..it looks great!

    i'd show off real soccer, price is right for the graphics, and maybe topple because females might like the cute expressions on the blocks

    (To show them how good graphics are Fastlane. Fastlane has bad AI's, they are way too hard)
