We’re kicking off a new weekly feature today: iPhone Game Friday. It will be running at the end of each week, and will either round up a handful of new games, a selection of classics, or look at a particular genre.
This week, we will be taking a look at a few of the latest releases for the iPhone platform. These five apps fall into a number of different categories, so there’ll be something for you whether you enjoy chess, action or racing!
I hope you enjoy the series, and we look forward to giving you a weekly game fix every Friday. Feel free to share your thoughts and ideas in the comments!
You are Tanner, an undercover cop posing as a getaway driver with the goal of exposing a national crime ring. I remember Driver from my days of using a Playstation, and always thought it was a great game. This iPhone port will take you to Miami, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and New York, and looks like a excellent racing game for quick thrills!
As you harvest precious energy, you must also fortify your station, build up your firepower and defend humanity’s domain! No pressure then… This one comes from a decent developer, and looks like a fun sci-fi game if you’re a fan of that type of genre.
If you’re a fan of Chess, you’ll definitely want to take a look at this app. Where most multiplayer iPhone chess apps connect to people with the same app, this one connects to the Free Internet Chess Server (FICS). It makes it far easier to find someone to play against, and there’s an intuitive interface for finding a good opponent.
A stunning Wipeout-style game, set on the surface of Mars. It looks good, and offers fast-paced, action-packed gameplay. Controls are also fairly customisable, so you have a few options to choose from. A fun racing game with a twist.
Share Your Ideas!
