This morning there were a few new Lite versions of iPhone and iPod Touch games available in the App Store. First of all there’s Virus Lite, a free demo that lets you play with white blood cells that need to fill up your screen while avoiding viruses. For those who don’t like playing with blood there’s a Pac-Man Lite version that allows you to try out the first level of this classic. Rock’n'Roll Lite gives you a free chance to try out three levels of the full game. We recently reviewed Rock’n'Roll and gave it a four out of five.

rRootage is a port of a shoot’em-up game developed by Kenta Cho for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Your goal is to constantly fire against an enemy mothership while avoiding attacks. The game was developed by Lazrhog and will be available for free in the App Store soon.
Ngmoco has released two of its new games for the iPhone and iPod Touch in the App Store. First title is Topple, available for just $0.99. In this game you need to stack weird shapes using the multi-touch controls to slide and rotate them into the position you want them to be. The second title is MazeFinger, a free maze puzzle game with more than a thousand unique mazes that you navigate by using your finger on the screen of your iPod Touch or iPhone. Every maze has hidden traps and other things that might get in your way. By playing through the 200 levels you can unlock new achievements.
When Spore: Origins for iPod Touch and iPhone launched, you had to pay $9.99 to get this EA Mobile game to your Apple device. Today EA Mobile has dropped the price of its game to just $7.99. In Spore: Origins, developed by the creator of The Sims, you play as a single-celled organism that needs to eat small pieces of DNA to avoid predators from eating you.
The App Store is only a few months old and yet there are already a plethora of maze based puzzle games available for gamers to choose from. Amongst them are the popular (and rather good) Dizzy Bee and Labyrinth, the slightly less impressive Spinner and the ridiculously impossible Balloonacy. Even at this early stage in iPhone gaming any new title joining this crowded genre is going to have to be rather special to make an impact. Tag Games certainly hope that Rock’n’Roll fits the bill but will this maze game leave players spinning in delight or wishing they’d stayed away? Read the rest of this entry »
South Park Imaginationland, a physics puzzler developed by RealNetworks, is now on sale for just $2.99. The game launched in July for $9.99 and got some nice response. You play the role of Butters who’s launched into the air and each time he bounces against a wall or the ground he gains imagination powder. With this powder, you can propel yourself into the air with a simple swipe of your finger. The goal of each level is to pick up a number of Rainbows and land on the goal.
Not only is Zen Bound, a surreal puzzle game, in the makings with the guys from Secret Exit, Spin is also a new title by this enthousiastic group of iPhone developers. In Spin you need to recognise different shapes. With over a hundred different 3D objects, multi-touch controls and tons of unlockable trophies this will be another one of those very entertaining titles for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Spin is actually a port of the mobile game SiL, a title that won the GDC 2007 and the 2006 Forum Nokia Pro awards.
X-Plane is one of the finest games out for the iPhone and iPod Touch, but Laminar Research keeps updating it to make it even more fun than it already is. Version 9.02 of this flight simulator puts more airports in the game, with a little RMI at the bottom of the HUD points. It’ll also feature a map in the location screen. The propellers of your planes will look better and the lateral accelerometer calibration is now vertical as well. Along with some other smaller updates this new version of X-Plane will be launched soon.
Source IT Software has released details and screenshots of its upcoming game Zombie Mansion for the iPhone and iPod Touch. Zombie Mansion is a first person shooter title that uses the accelerometer for controlling your character in the game. Zombie Mansion will come out in November in the App Store. There are a few nice screenshots of Zombie Mansion waiting behind the break. Read the rest of this entry »
The current version of the Nintendo DS, the Nintendo DS Lite, is the market leader. With its new Nintendo DSi, Nintendo wants to strengthen its position in the handheld market. The DSi will compete with the new PSP-3000, an enhanced version of the PSP Slim&Lite, and Apple’s iPhone and iPod Touch. The Nintendo DSi has a few interesting new features including a slicker design, two cameras, bigger screens and an online DSi Store. Joystiq has compared the size of the PSP-3000, iPod Touch (1st generation) and Nintendo DSi.
