With so many games being released on the iTunes app store, it’s sometimes hard to keep up with which ones you should or shouldn’t be playing on your iPhone. Thankfully, we have the review round-up to show you the best games available on the app store, complete with summaries and reviews from all around the web.
Facebook Places has only been around a few short weeks, but has already spawned a few apps with one of them being InCrowd. The idea here is that you check-in to places and gain popularity points by doing so. Customization is a factor as you can make yourself look just like how you want. Being from Booyah, it’s no surprise that the game bares a striking resemblance to Nightclub City.
In their review, GameZebo said InCrowd’s biggest problem is its current state of emptiness. “In the past week I’ve traveled from Flagstaff to Phoenix to Oakland and back again; I checked into more than twenty locations during my travels, and the only time I encountered another user was when I checked into Skyharbor International Airport.” Sounds like it’s a situation where if more people play it, it will become much more interesting.

Controls for a 2D platformer on the iPhone have become a difficult thing to do. With Pizza Boy however, it’s become apparent that there is hope for the genre. The feel of the character is very important, and they appear to have nailed it in Pizza Boy for iPhone.
In their review, AppSpy said the game is a bit on the short side but “but what is available is finely tuned and a great basis for any future platformer. An easy game to recommend for all platformer fans.”
