iCanSketchIt, Andrew Borland, iPhone, Apple, App StoreFor the creative minds among us there’s iCanSketchIt for the iPhone. Others could try it out as well, but if you we’re a complete loser at painting when you were young, this won’t be any different for you. In this game from Andrew Borland you have to copy a picture as accurately as possible to get a nice score. You get a nice palette of colors and different brushes, but there’s a time limit that will kill you! There are timed and precision game modes and there’s an option to compare your scores online with the scores of other players. iCanSketchIt is now available in the App Store for only $1.99.

Use a tile and the game replaces it by the one below it. Clear an entire column and you score extra, clear the whole board and you get even more points. It’s out in the App Store for £2.99.

Time has a really interesting article about the future of gaming for Apple’s iPhone. In their article they give a nice overview of some of the upcoming games for the iPhone and some of the pro’s and contra’s of the iPhone as a gaming device. Here’s an interesting quote of Greg Yardley of Pinc Media, a studio that builds free tools for the iPhone:

“The iPhone has excellent hardware in it. It is as capable as the DS or PSP”

Neil Young, former Electronic Arts (EA) executive who found the San Francisco–based startup ngmoco, said the same thing Carmack mentioned a couple of days ago:

“You have a DS and you have a telephone. Why not buy just one?”
