    Hey guys! I don't know if you've tried any, but Skyworks makes excellent games. I have Arcade Bowling, but was wondering, should I buy any others? Which one do you guys think is the best? (I am a basketball player, but I don't know if that changes anything hehe).

    Thanks!

    yeah skyworks is great. I only have arcade bowling and i love it. I am #12 on the global overall progressive mode high scores (53,590), and in a 163-way tie for classic mode with a perfect score of 900. I too am unsure of what other skyworks games I should get. Arcade bowling is just amazing, and i constantly try and beat my progressive mode high score.

    Batter Up Baseball. I've played 6 or 7 of their games over time, and this one is by far my favorite.

    Skyworks is definitely a class act. I reviewed most of their games and was impressed with almost all of 'em. A quick rundown of a few:

    Arcade Hoops Basketball: Classic arcade hoops. Really well done, and does a great job of bringing the arcade basketball experience to the iPhone.

    Batter Up! Baseball: Excellent arcade-style baseball game where you swing at pitches from a pitching machine and try to hit homers, and optionally targets placed around the field.

    World Cup Air Hockey: Good air hockey game, slick presentation, didn't really excite me as much as their other stuff though, possibly because there are better air hockey games on the App Store.

    World Cup Ping Pong: However, this one was definitely a lot of fun. It even incorporates ball spin for some wicked curve shots. There's a bonus arcade mode that's kinda tough but interesting.

    Arcade Bowling: A good skeeball game with a fun progressive mode. Love the glowy neon/blacklight visuals and arcade scoreboard, but overall I preferred 10 Balls 7 Cups.

    I've got Horseshoes in the review queue now and I'm quite liking it so far. It takes a bit to get a handle on the physics and requires more precise dragging on the screen to score a ringer, but I like the way it's done so far.
