I review a mixture of established iPhone titles and new releases from across various genres. My reviews place particular emphasis on how each game makes use of the unique potential that the interface of the iPod Touch offers.
Bang! iPhone deftly recreates the classic parlor game. Secret roles and special abilities combine with a well balanced card set to create an intriguing and addictive experience. Add to this the cross-platform multiplayer and this is an impressive iPhone/iPad/PC offering... read now
StarFox Command is an overlooked treasure. It has bite-size missions, fluid touch screen controls and great graphics and sound; I consider it a real shame that this game cartridge doesn't have a permanent place in many gamers' DS cases... read now
Plants Vs Zombies brings zany addictive tower defence to the iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad in style. Popcap made their name with Peggle, Bookworm and Bejeweled, but it's the depth of their creative well that continues to impress with games like this... read now
We Rule on iPhone places you in charge of a little kingdom, growing food and manufacturing goods for money and experience. Its toytown charm makes it fun for a while, but connectivity issues may mean missed opportunities when you can't access your kingdom. If Farmville is your idea of fun, this one's for you... read now
Angry Birds is 59p on iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch and has sat at the top of the top 100 apps for weeks, with good reason. Charming design and a fantastic understanding of the iPhone's unique features created this success for developer Rovio... read now
A search for 'poker' in the iPhone App Store will swiftly confirm that the iPlatform has not escaped the craze.

It seems that whatever floats your (full) boat, something with a poker tie-in is probably available... read now
Poker Superstars III is a fast, well presented and enjoyable iPhone poker experience. At times limited by its format and haphazzard AI, it still manages to be a good choice for the novice/improving player looking for some poker glam to brighten up their lunch break... read now
World Series of Poker: Hold'em Legend joins the astronomical rise in popularity of poker over the last few years. Not only does it provide a game of real scope but it's also a lot of fun... read now
World Poker Tour Texas Hold'em! starts promisingly, with a slick, World Poker Tour video giving way to a clear, nicely built menu all topped off with a welcome voice over from the Poker Ambassador himself, Mike Sexton. But there pretty much ends the positive things I have to say about the game... read now
Final slot in our round up of the best entertaining iPhone games you can buy for less than the cost of a decent daily newspaper belongs to the slickly presented, fiendishly addictive and hugely popular puzzler, Fling! This is possibly the simplest of the three games in our cheap game round up, although that is perhaps not too surprising given that it's the one iPhone puzzle game in the group - a genre that has proven again and again that 'simple done well' is king... read now
