Hold tight as the iPhone launches into a world of text, drugs and rock and roll. OK, maybe no the drugs part but the latest offering by Gameloft, Guitar Rock Tour, sets out to combine the latest craze in computer gaming with the iPhone’s cutting edge touch technology. Following in the footsteps of Guitar Hero and Rock Band this addictive application puts users’ digital dexterity to the test as they shred away to the music like a cross between Slash and Mozart. At £3.49/ $5 the application is at the upper end of the games ladder, however, the combination of smooth graphics, pumping acoustics and classic track list make the application excellent value.

All of the rock none of the roll would be an apt description of Done Drinking. The aim of the game is simple, make the character walk in a straight line. An easy enough task you would assume but once you factor in that your worse for wear friend has hand one too many beers the task takes on a whole new meaning. I’m sure in the past many of you have taken the long a winding round home after a night out on the town and you’ll know that it feels like you need a degree in geometry to keep a moving in a straight line.
The game is perfectly designed for the iPhone as it utilizes two of its most unique features, namely the touch screen and the in-built accelerometer. To keep your swaying friend on his feet you can either tap either side of the screen to force him in that direction or tilt your iPhone in the direction you wish to move him. Once you’ve mastered the controls your task is to getting the rocking party animal as far as you can in three attempts. The cartoon graphics brilliantly encapsulate what this game is all about: fun. The random hiccups, encouraging “oi” sounds as you prod your man to keep him vertical and the merry grin on his face create an entertaining atmosphere. More importantly, the game is easy to play and frustratingly addictive.
Done Drinking is a perfect game for the iPhone because it not only makes good use of its groundbreaking technology but it’s a game that requires little effort and can fill those boring moments in the day. Indeed, this game truly is one for the road as you can swagger and sway while on the move. If the only downside is that you miss all the fun of drinking the fun you’ll have playing the game will certainly make up for it. Plus you won’t feel any of the nasty effects of a hangover in the morning.
We love our iPhones, no doubt about it and that’s why I want to issue a note of caution when downloading Copter. Originally developed an internet game played by bored office workers and students this simple game has taken on cult status. If I were to review this game purely on its aesthetics the description would be something that closely resembled a crash landing with a pile of pejoratives falling onto the page. Fortunately, spectacular graphics aren’t what this game is about and what it lacks in style it certainly makes up for in pure gaming fun. Your mission is to pilot a miniature helicopter through what looks like the set of a dodgy 80’s video game and get the furthest distance possible. Read the rest of this entry »

A bin, a fan and some waste paper; what could be simpler? Paper Toss encapsulates a whole generation of development and technology. Do I mean that this game is one of most sophisticated of its era? No; far from it. What I do mean though is that Paper Toss has taken a simple game people used to play in their bedrooms or office and turned it into a digital hit. With health and safety laws, an increase in paperless activity in office and general annoyance of those around you, it has become difficult to indulge in a friendly game of waste paper basketball.

Mark of Mafia has taken the iPhone community by storm since its inception. The interactive strategy game plunges you into the depths of the underworld and it’s your job to build up a family that can rise to the top of the criminal fraternity. At the start of the game you must decide where your family’s interests lie: capitalist (money hungry), psychopaths (obsessed with carrying out criminal activity) or executioners (trigger happy nutters). From here it is up to you how you shape your family and what goals you want to achieve. Because this type of game relies on the interaction between players across the world there are no set targets to achieve and no specific objective in site. Players are free to set their own agendas, some will want to buy as many of the varied businesses as possible, while others may just want to run riot amongst the other players by compiling an arsenal that would rival the American Army.
