Super Monkey Ball from SEGA is one of the best iPhone games out there, but it’s pretty hard for people who aren’t familiar with the Super Monkey Ball series. The game has already sold over 300,000 copies and will now get an update that will make the game a little easier reports MTV Multiplayer. After running this update you should have more grip on the controls and you should be able to tweak the ‘dead zone’. The dead zone is the orientation at which you could hold the iPhone to stop moving. SEGA hasn’t confirmed this patch yet.

Balloonacy is the first game of Mobile Amusements for the iPhone and it’s now available in the App Store. In the game you need to tilt the iPhone to guide your balloon through maze-like levels. If you touch an obstacle or one of the walls, your balloon will pop and your quest for keys to open walls will cost you an extra balloon life.

Today TAG Games confirmed the development of Astro Ranch to PocketGamer. Astro Ranch looks a bit like Animal Crossing and Harvest Moon, but opposed to those two games Astro Ranch is set somewhere in the 50′s in a sci-fi world with motion- and touch-controls with some cool connectivity features. Sindy Starlight is your name and you’re an intrepid space explorer who starts an own ranch while exploring the planet and becoming friends with the locals.
You’ll have to build up your own ranch, pan for gold by shaking the iPhone, compete in various contests, build fences and throw lasso’s to runaway animals by giving the screen a tap. The game will have an original soundtrack and a user-controlled camera. The best feature is the possibility to trade items and send messages and gifts to other gamers who have Astro Ranch.
TAG Games also announced the production of Rock’n'Roll for the iPhone, it’s due to come out before Astro Ranch which is set for release somewhere in March 2009.
