    Do you guys have access to a Iphone 3GS? If so it would be interesting to see if sonic plays without any of the slow down issues.

    Will there be a Touch S (instead of 3GS) in the future?

    Someone does have a 3GS in the office, and I'll see if we can organise that, but I remember reading elsewhere that the improvement is minimal.

    good roundup, i've found that Sonic does run better on a 3GS but is still very playable on the 3G. Suprised GeoDefense isn't in here, it possibly one of the most addictive and well made games I've found for the iPhone yet.

    sonic has no noteable slow down on 3gs from what i can see when playing it. nothing that detracts from the game anyway. Not yet tried real racing maybe its time to purchase. It needs a ff remake on iphone. Would be an insta buy for most

    i think the problem with Worms is the speed limited by current iPhones. try Worms on 3GS and the 45s time limit should be enough.

    Worms, Peggle and Real Racing are on my phone as they are the best games (in this roundup) and a must-have for all iphone OS gamers.

    really happy that Bit-tech have been doing iPhone game roundups

    AFAIK there won't be a Touch S as the Touch already has a faster CPU than the iPhone 3g. Glad you guys liked the round up - if you're in doubt about Real Racing I'd say go for it, it really is quite amazing.

    from what I remember, certain games will work faster on the 3gs. I say this because in carmack's report on Doom Resurection he notes how the 3gs notably speeds up the game.

    Hey, is there nothing for the G1? No Apple broken **** for me, I want something for the OTHER platform...

    Gripe out of the way, excellent reviews, and I'm seriously starting to wonder what's the best portable gaming solution.

    Peggle is, was, and always will be awesome. I've finished both games, every level, every challenge, every damn peg.

    Trust me, it's only infinitely winnable at the beginning. Before long, when you get to the stupid "clear 90 orange pegs with one ball" challenges does it get so incredibly difficult. Still addicitve though, still awesome.

    for absolute must have iphone games, my short list is UniWar (awesome turnbased hex strategy game with surprising depth), tap tap revenge 2 (its waaay too easy, but still very very fun), iDracula (who doesnt like a modern take on Smash TV?) and Real Racing (Yes, its very good). I am also very fond of strategery, though its a bit flawed in its execution. Out of all of those Ive probably sunk the most time into UniWar and iDracula. Oh, and if you want something of a different pace, try Glyder. Its probably the best rendition of pilotwings outside of pilotwings, and is definitely one of the better flying games on the iphone.

    All depends on what you want to do with your iphone.

    I tend to use the following on mine

    TVGuide (free)
    Facebook (free)
    TweetDeck (free - but does have some bugs, DougEdey has suggested DestroyTwitter instead)
    eBuddy (free) messenger program which integrates MSN, Facebook chat, & several others
    Toobz - pipemania style game

    There's also an ap which will turn your iphone/ipod touch into a remote monitor/trigger for a Cannon/Nikon SLR (connected to a laptop).

    I use Nimbuzz instead of eBuddy and it works a treat. :thumb:

    Toobz is more than addictive! For every Lovecraft enthusiast "Collected Stories - H.P. Lovecraft" is a must-buy! £1.79 for 40-50 stories. What more could you ask for?

    The last.fm client is pretty nice as well.
