iPhone Game Friday: New Releases

Welcome to the final iPhone Game Friday of the month, can you believe it’s already the end of January? I’m writing this on Tuesday evening, before the Apple announcement of the Tablet… at least I hope they announced the tablet… otherwise a lot of people are going to be scratching their heads!

Anyway, once again we are rounding up new releases from over the past fortnight, excluding the ‘Big One’ that is GTA:China Town Wars as we have a separate review for this. I like to keep the new releases posts as varied as possible and hope there is something for everyone in here!

Flight School

Flight School

Flight School

Skydive and Jetpack your way through 16 challenging levels in the new game from dssDigital. The game comes with 4 different modes of gameplay and each mode has 4 levels.

Lovely retro graphics give you something to look at but the control system feels a little fiddly. Try out a free version before you buy called Flight School Lite and let us know what you think.

Price: $3.99
Developer: dssDigital

Doodle Army

Doodle Army

Doodle Army

For those of you who like a little cartoon carnage in your lives, Doodle Army should satisfy your cravings as wave after wave of stick men get mown down with one of your 25 weapons. Controls seem simple enough and there are 4 battlezones to make your way through.

With 30 characters to unlock and more weapons and missions promised by the developers, the price is a bargain for what could be a fantastic game.

Price: $.99

Spore Creatures

Spore Creatures

Spore Creatures

From Sims genius Will Wright comes this DS and iPhone spinoff of Spore. For those of you familiar with the PC Version, Spore is essentially a God Game where you control the evolution of your creature, avoid getting killed and complete 20 colourful levels across 4 different zones.

Control your character using the iPhones accelerometer and customise your character with over 45 unique body parts to ensure you survive in an ever changing environment.

Price: $6.99
Developer: Electronic Arts

Anrufen Online

Anrufen Online

Anrufen Online

Although billed as “free”, Anrufen Online is actually an MMORPG and one that does really require paying the subscription if you wish to get the most out of it. Personally I feel there could be more MMORPG games on the iPhone, they’re generally quite easy to play on the move and this one features lovely isometric graphics.

As with most games in this genre, you fight your way through a fantasy world, taking on mythical creatures and other players. Well worth taking a look at the free version although it is a little confusing and could do with a good tutorial!

Price: Free

Flick Kick Field Goal

Flick Kick Field Goal

Flick Kick Field Goal

A simple idea (and a reused one from a company who also developed Aussie Rules and Rugby versions of the game) but incredibly well executed. It’s a little bit like Paper Toss but with a football, however you can also curve your kick with a clever flick.

Lots to do and highly addictive, there are 4 game modes to keep you going and you’ll want to keep coming back to beat your scores. Well worth a look at.

Price: $1.99
