iphone gaming

We’ve all seen the shitty mobile phone games out there, most of them are crap and is too pricey. iPhone seems to break the chains with the powerful technology it hauls, and some of the games getting released is something  that actually resembles real games(!!!). Yes this all sounds crazy, I know but hear me out. If I understand this the right way, it’s very cheap to make games for this device since apple themselves released  some program to make it easier for the developers. The apps then gets approved by apple and you can buy the game or whatever on itunes. Thats why the games you get is somewhat cheap, easy to get and most of the games are ripoffs of popular games like gta.

I myself own a iphone and my apps where getting a bit old, since it’s been about 5 months since I last updated and got some new apps. When I got on itunes store I was shocked! Assasin’s creed and Metal gear was avalible as games. The games wasn’t halfbad eighter. Sure metal gear was just snake shooting at robots sitting behind a rock wall, but Assassin’s creed was pretty much what the console version was but with toned down graphics of course. Thats when it stuck me, do we consider iphone as a handheld gaming device now? I even saw Resident evil getting made by capcom themselves for this phone.

I though I would take a quick look at titles that somewhat interested me and i’ll tell you how my experince was.

Car Jack Streets

A game where you play as a guy called frank. You steal cars and shoot random people in a birds eye view. Yes you guessed it. This is GTA 2 with some other name and story slapped all over it. This doesn’t have to be a bad thing since the iphone doesn’t offer GTA. The controls could be better but I guess its the best solution with the touchscreen and everything. So if you like GTA you need to have this game since it’s really cheap.

Zombieville usa

Zombieville is pretty much what you would expect from the name, you’re in a village and you kill zombies. Nothing too advanced here, you can buy guns from money you collect, get ammo in houses and the goal of the game is too kill as many zombies as possible. Controls in this game is very tight due to its simplicty. Great game, it has that addiction feeling to it.

Wolfenstein 3d classic

Two words: “Hell yes”. Bringing this game back was the best idea ever. Everything is perfect about this game. If you never played this game, shame on you!

Assassin’s creed

As I mentioned before this game offers almost the same gameplay as the console version. Fighting is very nice in this game but climbing can get a bit annoying due to its silly limitations with the touchscreen. The graphics is very beutiful for a mobile phone game. This game beats the DS version by ALOT.

Cooking mama

If you played cooking mama before you know what to expect. Some girl that could well be in her teenages calling herself “mama” teaches you how to cook with fun minigames. It’s the same as the DS version of the game. You cut, peel, fry and do other cooking stuff and like this was hell’s kitchen she judges you because she’s a bitch and won’t accept failure. Since the iPhone has additional features like shaking. This was also implemented in the game.

Eliss

When you play this game you get the same feeling as when you play tetris, you dont really know why you like it, but it sure as hell keeps you interested. Very simple graphics and gameplay. You control balls wich I would supposed would be stars. With theese balls you need to create supernovas  by dragging the balls into fields. To make the game harder theres two diffrent colors that cant touch eachother. At first you just need to add the balls toghether until they’re big enough to fit in the fields, but later you need to both split them and add them toghether to fit them in all fields. I greatly recommend this game.

Watchmen: Justice is Coming

You ever played a game that just sucked so much you feel dirty afterwards? This game is the worst attempt at an mmorpg I ever seen, and I played my share of free mmorpgs in my time. Just don’t buy this game, not even if they offer you this game at no cost with some free ice cream. I just got disconnected randomly. If you try to fight somebody they eighter disconnect or they leave halfway into the battle. I feel kinda raped since I love the watchmen comic

iPhone do have alot of games to offer, and alot of them is very fun to play. It isn’t really at DS or PSP level just yet but the games seems to improve really fast and alot of developers is jumping on the train. If you dont own an iPhone you shouldn’t buy it to play games on it, but if you’re one of the lucky ones to own one, check some games out.

Here’s some other games I checked out and enjoyed:

Airport mania: First flight – Control an airport. Fun sim game

Playman Track & Field – Very simple sport game, similar to the old nes classic track and field

Myst – A remake of the old adventure game for the PC

Metal gear solid touch – point and shoot game, does ad some of the story to the metal gear series.

Fieldrunners – Towerdefence game building towers ‘n shit, you know the drill.

Hero of sparta – Really good ripoff if you will of the god of war series. a must get for fans like myself.

Character – Its not really a game but it sure is game reladed. Show off your e-penis to your friends without a computer. WoW armory tool to watch gear and stuff.

Heres a trailer of some sweet rpg game

Thats all thanks for reading
