Frisky Misc, 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.

Jet Car Stunts

While Jet Car Stunts has been out for several months now, it just recently received a brand new update consisting of new levels, modes and features. A new level pack is now available for $1.99 and includes 26 new platforming levels to explore. The brand new cheat system helps out every kind of player by allowing access levels and skins from the get-go. This new edition also updates all visuals for the iPhone 4′s retina display.

Slidetoplay says that “All in all, we [Slidetoplay] still love this game. Its incredible that the developers are supporting it months after launch with heaps of new content.” Rating: 4 out of 4. Price: $1.99.

Physics GameBox

FDG Entertainment’s Physics Gamebox looks to take the simple concept of using physics to the next level with its excellent touch screen control and charming graphics. To play, simply tap where you want to send your ragdoll or bomb, and that’s that.

Overall, TheAppEra claimed in their review that “These are two extremely popular flash games from the web ported to be played natively on iPhone, and they’re great. Let’s keep this going shall we guys?” Price: 99¢.

Risk

Risk on the iPhone takes the best parts from the real board game, sticks them into a neat, well controlling package and calls it good. Being one of the board game ‘classics’, Risk is a game that requires absolute precision to be spot on and true to the original. While it is a decent enough version of the game, GameZebo says that they were “disappointed that the official version of Risk arrived without many of the bells and whistles of its competitors” and that other games offer a “similarly satisfying Risk experience, but also feature online multiplayer, different game modes, and a wide variety of maps. Risk may be faithful to the source material, but it’s a little too faithful when contrasted with the competition.” Price: $4.99. Rating: 4 out of 5.
