Favorite iPhone/iPod Games
 
I dont think there is a thread like this here so I guess I'll start one. Post some of your favorite iPhone games that are quality. Sometimes it can be hard to weed out all the other ****ty games in the app store. Ill start:

Keep on mind Im playing on an iPhone for and some games dont support the retina display so some of my screens are blurry.




Flood It 2

Its basically a puzzle game where you have to get all of the squares to be the same color at the end. You just touch the circles at the bottom and it changes the squares at the top left to same color and you pick up more squares. You have so many color changes to win.





Geodefense

Picture says it all. My favorite tower defense game in the App store.






Godfinger


This is the best farming type game(like farmville) in the app store imo. Basically you just farm gold and build more buildings. You get one planet, and you can manipulate it to your pleasing(scorch the land so it looks like a desert, make it lush, move land up and down, create a lake). Its pretty good and supports the iphone 4 retina display as you can see its pretty crisp.





Stick Golf


Basically just a golf game, but highly addicting. Right now it has 8 courses that vary completely with 9 holes a piece. Good fun.





Tilt To Live


This is one of my personal favorite. Basically your the arrow and you need to kill the red dots while not touching any of them. Powerups spawn on the level to kill the dots in various ways. There are 4 different kinds of gameplay. The game also has achievements and weapon unlocks. Also the arrow is controlled by tilting your device. Highly recommended.






Words With Friends


Basically scrabble on the go. You can have 20 simulatneous games at once. People play at their own leisure so you can play one turn today and not get another turn until a day later or so. Who doesnt like scrabble?

Forgot one
 


Galcon

Its basically an RTS on the iphone. It has local and internet multiplayer. Basically you start at one planet and have to eliminate the enemy players by capturing his planets. Its just like playing mushroom wars on the PS3. This game is actually on steam too.. see here for video.

The_KELRaTH Aug 8, 2010 07:21 AM

I'm amazed just how many great games there for the iPhone/Touch/iPad - not purchased one PSN game since getting the iPad.

Some of the non HD games worth picking up are:
WarBlade vertical arcade shooter (Free at the moment too)
http://www.emv-software.com/

Land Air Sea Warfare (RTS)
http://www.isotope244.com/land-air-sea-warfare.html

logical Aug 8, 2010 02:56 PM

Bah, went to get warblade and it cost money again... there is a free version but I love full versions for free.

Civilization is free for a couple of days make sure to get that if you havent people.

t0adp1p3 Aug 8, 2010 04:40 PM

Soosiz is a quality platformer on par with a mario game.


sword and poker2 is a great game kind of poker+an rpg its very fun


don't forget the doom/wolfesntien rpgs they are good.

and the 5 minute fixes like angry birds and doodle jump.

and PvZ is awesome on a iphone as well.

logical Aug 9, 2010 11:00 PM

That soosiz game was pretty interesting... kind of reminded me of mario galaxy without the 3d. It was too simple for me though.

wangFu Aug 11, 2010 11:36 PM

Soozis is pretty good, i liked it even though its pretty simple.
Castle of Magic looks a little childish but its another decent platformer.

Chaos Rings is a bit expensive for an iphone game but its a decent jRPG, probably the best on the iphone so far


havent tried any racers but i hear good things about real racing

wc326 Aug 12, 2010 12:31 AM

Mikado Defenders: A Tower Defense that really stood out




logical Aug 13, 2010 07:35 PM

I dont suspect this thread will get many views but I'll keep posting my favorites for a reference later on... :lol:


Plants v Zombies





This one needs no introduction, fun game and perfect for the iPhone. I wish they would update for higher resolution iPhone 4 display though.


Eboy FixPix




This game is pretty cool but wont last very long. Basically all you do is align things on the screen to make the image complete. Art direction is nice but wont last long since there are only 100 puzzles and each puzzle takes like 30 second at most.


PathPix




One of my favorite type puzzle games. Basically there are numbers on squares and you have to connect that number to a square with the same number by using that many squares to get to it. Then the finished product is a pixelated image and it gives a quote. Fun game.


NOVA




The premier first person shooter on the iPhone.



Plunderland




I dont know how to describe this game... its kind of like an action adventure. You go around on a boat battling other ships and shooting up islands. Looks nice, I havent spent a crap load of time with it yet.



Fruit Ninja




Very simple quick fix game. Fruit gets thrown on the screen and you have to "slice" them with your finger before they fall. You also have to avoid bombs being thrown up with the fruit.

DigitalDemon Aug 13, 2010 09:05 PM

In no order:

NOVA
Angry Birds
Fieldrunners
Plants vs Zombies
Real Racing
Air Attack
Dark Nebula Episode 1 and 2
Flight Control
Fruit Ninja
Helsing's Fire
I Dig It 1 and 2
Labyrinth 1 and 2
Stone Loops of Jurassica (no longer available)
Luxor (stone loops substitute)
Modern Combat Sandstorm
Ragdoll Blaster 2
Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor
Solebon Solitare
Top Gun
Train Conductor 2: USA
Wurdle
Zenbound 2
2xl ATV Offroad

Games I have my eye on:
Let's golf 2
Chaos rings
Final Fantasy 1 and 2
Solipskier

The_KELRaTH Aug 14, 2010 02:24 AM

New and Free does not necessarily mean good.

Here are a few more:

Pinball HD



Great Pinball Game. Has 3 different pinball tables.


Doodle God



This is an interesting game with a some good gameplay. You are given 4 elements at the beginning and then you are supposed to mix the elements to come up with new elements. There are nearly 200 combinations that can be made from beginning at 4 elements.


Archetype



Online Multiplayer FPS shooter, rivals NOVA in graphics.


Solipskier



You draw a path and the skier follows it, make him jump to do tricks... get a high score... another good looking quick fix game.

logical Aug 22, 2010 10:10 PM

Hector: Badge of Carnage Episode 1




This is a touch adventure game. You interact with things and people in the game to accomplish your task. For example, the first task is to get out of the room you are locked in. This one has quite a bit of humor, pretty good game too. It is a bit short maybe 3-4 hours if you cant figure things out at the most.

pahncrd Aug 22, 2010 11:50 PM

Hmm... I have quite a few I enjoyed a lot.

Defender Chronicles
Chaos Rings
The Quest
Xenome
Ravensword
Dungeon Hunter
Necromancer
NOVA
Wolf3d + Platinum
GTA Chinatown
Fieldrunners
Sentinel 1 and 2
NFS Shift
Hero of Sparta 1 and 2
Simcity Deluxe
Zombieville
Groklion
Katamari

I haven't played my PSP or DS in months. :lol:

wc326 Aug 23, 2010 05:04 AM

lol please do us a favur by posting pic or video as well

logical Aug 24, 2010 05:15 AM

Zenbound 2



Surprisingly simple game yet gets harder to complete. It's a game where you have to cover objects with rope by rotating the object. There are different types of variations the game has but that's basically what younger supposed to do. Cool game and concept.

wc326 Aug 27, 2010 12:15 AM

best shooting today..
Dodonpachi Resurrection

logical Aug 27, 2010 02:22 AM

That dodo game is RIDICULOUS.


xFilter Aug 27, 2010 08:54 AM

The 2 best games by far that I've played on the iPhone has to be Earth Defender and Solipskier. Earth Defender also has to be the best looking game I've played on the iPhone.

yea. one of the best shooter game on iphone, the control is top notch.

the graphic is insane. so many bullets everywhere.

altho the game is too short. beat it after 1 + hour.

badboy Aug 29, 2010 10:50 AM

right now



Ive completed the first one and love every second of this

logical Aug 29, 2010 10:34 PM

No Human


Physics based puzzle game. You use asteroids to destroy the humans and their ships. Some other asteroids have gravitational push/pull so you have to use that to destroy a lot of the ships. Simple, short, great looking quick game.

globalist Aug 30, 2010 04:35 PM

Cuurently the only game I'm playing:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=apQA7szpOGg

Before that I played Drop7 extensively and before that Compression with a little Angry Birds thrown in.

Edit: how on earth do you embed YouTube here? :)

I hate and love this game. Live it because it's a great defense game. Hate it because it makes me feel stupid for being unable to beat even the second level of medium difficulty :cry:

I've beaten all the levels. Some levels required more time than others though. A few levels were hard until I tried muliple ways of winning. Picking the best strategy takes some time for a few levels.

pahncrd Sep 1, 2010 10:53 PM

Did you guys try out the Epic Unreal 3 tech demo that is up on the app store?

http://www.engadget.com/2010/09/01/e...at-itunes-app/

If there was any question about the iPhone's capabilities, this should put them to rest. Holy **** it looks awesome in motion running at 60fps on my 3gs. :drool: Ambient occlusion, dynamic lighting, parallax mapping and all sorts of ****. This isn't just more powerful than the old Xbox, it is well beyond it.

HAL10000 Sep 1, 2010 11:13 PM

I have to say that in the three months or so that I've had my iPad I can't remember when I actually played a game on it... except for Solitare but that's not a real game.

Silent-Runner Sep 2, 2010 09:23 AM

Pocket God is quite amusing.


Djinn Sep 2, 2010 09:55 AM

Lately, I've been enjoying:

Dark Nova 1 & 2
Angry Birds
Hero of Sparta 2
