iPad, iPhone, Mobile

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.

Wheel of Fortune Platinum for iPhone

Playing just like its TV counterpart is Wheel of Fortune Platinum for iPhone. Sporting a cool character creator and somewhat difficult puzzles, the game really appears to capture the original game show pretty well. However, Slidetoplay found that the iPhone version “feels like it came directly from a standard-issue cell phone. It’s clunky, has super-pixelated graphics, and tries to nickel-and-dime you to no end.” But can the addition of online play save this port? According to the review, “The matches are usually quite fun, although it always seemed our opponents would either time out or quit the game before it ended.” Rating: 2 out of 4. Price: 99¢.

Spider: Bryce Manor HD for iPad

An upgraded version of the original Spider: Bryce Manor always seemed welcome in player’s eyes, and this updated edition does just that with much improved visuals and a larger play area. TheAppEra calls it a “must have for every iPad owner” simply because the iPad version is easier to control, contains additional modes and content, and has visuals that are truly worth the upgrade. In their conclusion, they could not stress the greatness enough: “Buy it NOW. I cannot stress this enough. I loved the iPhone version and the iPad version is only better. This truly is a must have for all iPad owners.” Price: $4.99.

Doodle Fishing for iPhone

Yet another Doodle game is out in the wild with Doodle Fishing. With its charming graphics and simple controls, it seems to be another hit on the developers’ hands. GameZebo says that the game appears to be nothing more than a re-skin of the established game ‘iFishing’ and were disappointed with the effort overall. Rating: 3 out of 5. Price: 99¢.
