Bike Baron. 79p. GET IT NOW

Also GTA3 controls remarkably well for an iPhone game, i'm not that far into it so I can't say for certain how good it is when things get hectic but my early impressions were favorable. Cheap too, square enix need to look at how you price iPhone games, they're f**king con artists.

Also my game center id for anyone with an iPhone is gippobeater if you want to add me, I currently have no friends. :( :P

Rogue Touch on the IOS.

I played that f**ker for 7 month solid. I'd still be playing it now if it wasn't for FMH. I actually held 3 of the top 10 global leaderboard spots. Just checked, I'm still 9th and 10th!

It's a very faithful recreation of the original Rogue back in the 80s. Perma death and a map generator that ensures no two games are the same.

Yeah that's the one, just as addictive as those 2 games.

Also, the 12 days of christmas app is free on the iTunes store, you get a gift a day for 12 days starting on the 26th. A lot of the time the stuff is s**t but there's the odd gem.

Cheers gippo.

I'd recommend Game Dev Story.

Image

The clues in the title, you setup your own development studio and create games, you can choose pretty much any genre, there are perks and abilities to make better games, you start off as a 2 man PC developer and work your way up to make your own console, you advertise at E3, there's a VGA like award ceremony.

Great fun, very addictive. No joke, I've probably put more hours into this than any console game this year.

Jetpack Joyride is FREE on App Store FOR TODAY ONLY.

The protagonist's name is Barry Steakfries, thats reason enough to download it.

Jetpack Joyride is awesome.

There's a few sales on the app store at the minute, EA and Gameloft are slashing the prices on all their games.

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/gamelof ... es-1097265

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/ea-game ... 9p-1096853

I'd stay away from most of the game loft games, most of them are terrible knock offs of popular console games.

Dead space is a good buy for it's new price, works surprisingly well on the iPhone.

Think I'll try N.O.V.A 2 at that price, I don't own a 360 so I'll make do with this Halo rip off :lol:.

Reviews say N.O.V.A is the best FPS on the App Store so it's worth a punt at 69p.

I'd just like to say,you sir are a bastard!

I reckon I've played this for at least 3 hours and I've only had it 3 days,it's do addictive with the little missions and collecting coins to purchase upgrades and coins for the spins when you die.Add me later as I'm currently top of Grolsch & ANT with my pathetic score of 3389 :lol: .

Oh and thanks for the heads up,this is easily in my top 3 iOS games now.

I think I had a score over 4000 before I sold my 3GS and bought a 4S, shame they don't save data in the cloud instead of storing it on the app itself. I've lost probably about 50 hours worth of gameplay across all of my apps by switching over. :lol:
