Puzzle Quiz Keeps it Simple, to Great Effect
Puzzle Quiz - When I download games for my iPhone, I usually prefer apps that aren't going to take too much effort. Sure, I want something that'll keep me occupied, but generally if it's a game that would require me to look up hints online, or if it takes really long to complete a round or two, I won't be all that interested.

What would happen if you armed a chipmunk? Chippy is a cute woodland creature who shoots arrows at balls in this new iPhone game from Cramzy.
Chippy feels old-school, though I am not convinced it is in a good way.
KarmaStar Shines, but Not for Everyone
Majesco Entertainment’s KarmaStar has gotten nice and shiny reviews in the App Store and elsewhere but I just don’t see what the fuss is about. I didn’t find KarmaStar all that engaging or even mildly entertaining.
Playman Track & Field Performs Well (No 'Roids Either)
Unleash your inner athlete with Playman Track & Field, from developer RealArcade. This is the ninth title RealArcade has introduced for the iPhone and iPod touch and the company has a big rep to maintain in the mobile games space.

Touch Ski 3D is an Original iPhone Game, Done Right for Sport-loving Gamers
Touch Ski 3D - I’ve always had a weird fascination with extreme winter sports. Granted I’m not a skier or snowboarder by any stretch of the imagination, I’ve always enjoyed watching some of the amazing feats that professional “extreme” athletes pull off at the ESPN X-Games.

Staying Alive in Zombieville USA

iQuarterback Goes Deep And Scores
The iQuarterback iPhone app by FuzzyCube Software LLC puts the football in your hands before, during and after the season. For the football junkie that goes into a state of depression right after the clock runs out on the Pro Bowl, finding something to help wile away the off season months has been a daunting task over the years.
Bowman Is An Enjoyable Work In Progress
Lentrica Software’s debut iPhone application is Bowman, a quick-hitting game that is all about playing up the one-on-one archery duel. In terms of its origin, Bowman is a port of a popular game available on several flash gaming portals.
Doodle Jump Entertains By Leaps and Bounds
Doodle Jump by Lima Sky appeals to simplicity in name, game design and play. Mimicking the appearance of actual doodles on graphing paper, the sketchy-sketch of a main character dons a suspiciously Qbert-like facade.
Pet Pals: Plenty of Bark For Your Bucks
Pet Pals - As someone who rather pathetically longs for a dog, but finds the combination of living in an apartment and owning two cats to be somewhat of an obstacle, I have to say that Pet Pals is...well, it's not as good as a the real thing, but as far as substitutes go, it's not so bad.
Tap Tap Coldplay Showcases The Speed of Sound, Indeed
Tap Tap Revenge: Coldplay Edition is the hottest new partnership in the Tapulous universe, following smashes like Tap Tap Revenge 2 and Tap Tap NIN.
Whereas, in Tap Tap 2, I was blown away by the sleek, futuristic look of the orbs floating toward the tap targets, more subtle bars of light stream toward them in the Coldplay incarnation.
