The greatest iPhone games of 2008

I can count more than 25 iPhone games that are better than some Nintendo DS and PSP games that sell for 20 or 30 bucks! Here's what's playing on my iPhone.

Fieldrunners: Hands down, this is one of the best and most polished iPhone games going. If you're a Tower Defense fan, check this out.

Lux: Remember the board game Risk? That's what you have here.

Zombie Attack: Defend your home from roaming undead by setting up turrets and traps.

The greatest iPhone games of 2008

Hero of Sparta: In this pretty impressive God of War-like action game, some solid hack-and-slashery is going on. My only real complaint is that the frame rate can get a little choppy at times. Still, it's a solild effort that's a lot of fun to take a stab at.

Chocolate Shop Frenzy: Fans of time-management games like Diner Dash need to check this out. In it, you serve chocoholics and play a Bejeweled-style minigame at the same time.

Dropship: This title is a high-style, vector-graphics flight game.

Topple: Playing this Tetris-like game takes a very steady hand. The difference here is that you want to stack your blocks up as high as they will go--and make sure not to tilt your phone too much in the process.

Brothers in Arms--Hour of Heroes: This is an amazing rendition of the World War II shooting title, ported to the iPhone. The controls are surprisingly smooth, proving that you can have a good shooting-game experience on your handset. It's...wait for it...a blast.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre x360

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
