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.

Flick Bowling: Twitch your finger and fling balls down the lane. Good physics models and nice graphics make this game a must-buy.

Guitar Rock Tour: Tap drums or play guitar riffs to cover classic rock songs. Hearing "Rock You Like a Hurricane" without a German-accented singer just seems wrong.

Real Soccer 2009: This fully legitimate, arcadey soccer title (sorry, football for the rest of the world) looks and handles fantastically.

A Taste of the Classics

The greatest iPhone games of 2008

Chopper: Addicted to Choplifter way back in the day? The game has been updated, and you steer with the tilt controls.

Dr. Awesome: Excise viruses in this modern take on Qix. It gets a little repetitive, but it has an awesome name. Plus, your patients are people on your iPhone contact list.

Darts: Here's a simple dart-hurling sim for when you aren't in some pub.

Crazy Tanks: Remember Combat on the Atari 2600? Think more colorful and cooler.

Uno: It's the classic card game, on your phone.

rRootage: Snag this classic retro shooter.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
