Racing games and the iPhone is a match made in heaven. The in-built tilt technology lends itself perfectly to manoeuvring the car as it mimics a steering wheel. Unlike many other racing games the developers of Fast and Furious really seemed to have nailed the interface between the game controls and the iPhone’s accelerometer. There is no ridiculous over steer or need to tilt your iPhone too far in one direction to make the car budge an inch. Sensitivity is often a problem with racing games but Fast and Furious has been perfectly calibrated to provide players with a game that feels realistic but with an element of control in place.

Do you remember the golden age of video arcades? They were dark, smelly places where spotty teenage boys would crowd around the latest cabinets as loud music, bright neon and happy smiles filled the room. Alas it seems that the video arcade is a dying institution now as home consoles provide just as much power and gaming with your mates means playing someone online that could well be on the other side of the world!

Ferrari GT: Evolution is another great iPhone game developed by Gameloft. This $9.99 game has an awesome feature list and will definitely be one of the top selling App Store games. Everyone who saw the cinematic trailer of the game might be a little disappointed by the graphics in-game, but it’s by far one of the best-looking iPhone and iPod Touch games out on the market. With future updates it will be possible to race gamers from all over the world. Ferrari GT: Evolution will be available tonight.
The most recent iPhone SDK’s allow developers to output apps via Video Out to a screen. Freeverse has modified its iPhone and iPod Touch game Moto Chaser so that it can be played on a TV screen. Normally the game runs at 26 FPS, but the TV-version of the game runs at only 20 FPS. Let’s hope that Apple will allow developers to use this cool feature in all of their games.

Fuel Industries, a Canadian interactive company and iPhone developer, has developed its second iPhone game. In Zombie Drive you’re the only left in a quarantined zone sectioned off by the army. If you’re doomed to get nuked, you might as well take out some zombies on the way—by driving them over. The game is a full 3D driving game built in Unity and will soon be available for just $0.99 in the App Store.
