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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

Brother PocketJet PJ-773 A4 Portable Thermal Printer

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
