Ball rolling games like Marble Madness are a natural fit for the iPhone (though I’m still waiting for that one), but even the good ones were all starting to feel somewhat the same. Gears is ready to break that mold. A full 3D environment, levels that stretch horizontally and vertically, and difficulty settings to challenge even the most hardcore gamer should give this game a broad range of appeal. I know I’m hooked.
One mad scientist is bad enough, but when they get together to form a league, they must be stopped! So it goes in League Of Evil, and it’s up to you to do the stopping. I’d be really surprised if this game wasn’t meant to pay homage to the NES era Mega Man games, but even if it wasn’t Mega Man fans will love it. Other people that like platform games should get a kick out of it as well.
Coming soon to an iPhone / iPod Touch near you – Aqua Pearls from G5 Entertainment. At first glance it might seem like just another one of those pearl matching games, but don’t let that fool you. Beyond the cool underwater atmosphere lurks a couple of game play modes that are fairly new to the genre. You may think you’ve had your fill of this type of game, but you might want to think again.
On or around September 2nd Com2Us will be releasing their next great iPhone game, Slice It! The game is all about proportions, as you divide various shapes into a certain number of slices each roughly the same size in area. It may sound like a game that only math geeks would play, but I assure you it will be fun for everyone.
Houston, we have a problem – there’s no full version of Air Attack yet! I normally don’t download the lite version of games, but this one intrigued me so I decided to give it a shot. The full version will be the final judgment, but I foresee this as being on the top of my “favorite scrolling shooters” list. It looks great, sounds fabulous, and plays like a champ. But hey, don’t take my word for it, play the lite version yourself!
Sudoku 2 is another Sudoku implementation for the iPhone, this time from the fine folks at FingerArts.
You ready for some cool new games? Well, you’re going to have to wait just a bit longer, but I thought I’d bring you a taste of some of what’s to come in the first edition of Pocket Full Of Previews. This time around I cover zombie ducks, 180 (?), and bouncing balls that just can’t stay down – but not necessarily in that order. Read on to see what you have to look forward to in the next month…
If the previews keep coming in this strong I think 2010 is going to be an even better year for iPhone gaming than 2009. Tilt To Live clearly demonstrates that there’s still innovation to be had even in something as simple as a “dodge everything on the screen” style game. The special effects are cool, the music rocks, and the game is just plain fun. This is definitely one to keep your eye on.
So how do you defeat wave after wave of menacing killer zombies? Why, with your trusty soccer ball of course. Or so it goes with Pro Zombie Soccer, anyway. This tongue-in-cheek look at zombie slaying games is colorful, the music sounds great, and best of all it’s loads of fun.
Finger Sling sounds like something a child does when they have a rogue booger, but in fact it’s actually a simple yet engaging action game coming soon to your iPhone. How long can you protect the white ball from all the attacking brown balls? That depends on how accurate your slinging is. Read the full preview to figure out what this crazy reviewer’s talking about…
Rating 3.00 out of 5 [?]I admired the developers of Circuit.Strike.One for trying to make a game that couldn’t be mistaken for your traditional shooter. I guess I’m too old fashioned, however, because I really couldn’t get into that game. Then along comes Underground, which is about as traditional as you can get – at […]

The game will get your stylus tapping and your brain churning as you try and catch thieves in this worldwide epic inspired by Carmen Sandiego. Check out my quick preview, and expect a full review soon.
