Top 5 iPhone Games for 4/03/09

Everyone has their favorite iPhone Apps. There are literally hundreds of thousands for you to choose from, so I would imagine that everyone’s list is not only different – but that it changes on a fairly regular basis.

For me, it changes every few weeks, at minimum. So it’s fun for me to occasionally take a look at my own personal Top 5 for the moment. Right now I’m really enjoying some of the iPhone game offerings, so this list is my Top 5 iPhone games of the moment…

5) Word Scramble by Zynga

This free Boggle-like game is nice looking and fun to play. There are a lot of negative reviews for it in iTunes because of its level of difficulty, and I would agree that the word bank could use an update…but I really do enjoy this game, and how its played.

4) iDracula – Undead Awakening

Vampires, Werewolves, Witches, and other cool monsters come at you in an onslaught that reminds me of an old arcade favorite “Smash TV”. The game looks fantastic, it’s fun, and it’s easy to pick up and put down. I find myself playing it far too much.

3) Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D

Tower Bloxx Deluxe 3D is one of, if not the, most beautiful games on the iPhone. This thing looks fantastic, and its deceptively simple gameplay quickly becomes challenging as you progress through building your own cities.

This one hasn’t been getting the love it deserves in the App Store Top 100 – but I definitely think you should check it out. Highly recommended.

2) Sway

I love games that think of new an interesting ways to work on the iPhone, and Sway is a great example of that. This game is fun, feature rich, and easy to pick up…but harder to put down. It’s addicting, and the simple finger swinging game mechanics are inspired.

It’s another graphical winner – and well worth your money.

1) Wolfenstein 3D


I know, I know…the graphics are dated, the game play is simple, and stereotypical…and I don’t give a rat’s ass. This game is perfectly brought to the iPhone, and looks fantastic for what it is.

Wolfenstein 3D is a genre defining classic and it has been expertly brought to this new platform….and it leaves me wanting QUAKE for iPhone so bad I don’t know what to do with myself.

I’ve played this thing more than any other game since getting the iPhone, and I’ve loved every minute of it. Well worth the cash…now ID – get to work on Doom, and Quake!!!


Comments

  1. Man, we wasted many an hour in the computer lab in high school on Wolfenstein 3D.

    My list would include Fieldrunners and Trism…both games I go back to time after time.

  2. My favorites at the moment are The Plateau and Wurdle. The Plateau has great sounds and graphics and keeps me going and going, while Wurdle is like scramble but more fun.

  3. Wolfenstein 3D – Cant WANT for Quake :P
