May eventually get an iPhone or iPod Touch

I don’t really want anything else out of a phone other than good battery life and the ability to make and recieve phone calls and send and recieve sms messages. I also don’t really listen to music “on the go”; I much prefer just listening to the sounds of the environment I’m moving through.

However, I may eventually get an iPhone or iPod Touch. Why? The games. I tend to buy hardware for a game platform when there are enough games (released or imminent) to justify the purchase. This happened pretty quickly for the Wii and DS, but took a lot longer for the PS3, PSP, and finally the Xbox360.

In general, I haven’t been very impressed with iPhone games. However, it looks like there are a few worthwhile games amongst the plethora of ports, crappy games, and titles that I’m just not interested in. Maybe when I find four games that I really like, I’ll jump into a purchase.

Cam showed me Zen Bound the other day and it looks awesome.

I’m also interested in Eliss, which is highly recommended over at OddWorld.

Finally, I’m keen to check out RjDj (not a game) and Chris’s GhostWave.

Anyone have any iPhone or iPod Touch game recommendations?

  1. I bought a refurbed 1st Gen because I wanted one for compatibility testing and it was cheaper than 2nd hand on eBay plus came with new battery. Given this morning.s announcements re iPhone 3.0 software, if you’re just looking for something to play with I’d be going for a 2nd Gen iPod Touch for the Bluttooth and mike.As I’ve been broadly researching game mechanics I can recommend a few depending on the genre.

    WordWarp is addictive if you like word puzzles

    Railroad Puzzle is a nice twist on plumbing games

    Flick Fishing is a nice casual game

    Crazy Penguin Catapult is hard to stop playing, great soundtrack!

    Spore Origins got me in but got boring after a while – not enough reward for customising creatures.

    X-Plane helicopter just stuns me as to how well it works

    Crash Bandicoot Nitro Kart is a kart racer, plyable and fun

    Trism is a fun puzzle, I didn’t find it as addictive as some claim.

    Scribattle is entertaining and a clever twist on Missile Command but not sufficient to make me want to buy the full version.
