    2XL Supercross and Star Defense look great, at first glance!

    Actually, they all do.

    Let's move it, Apple! ;-)

    I agree. They all look pretty good. My favorite is definitely Star Defense. Pretty cool idea..and I love the graphics. :)

    galaga

    galaga... awesome! I'm concerned, however, that my rapid fire tendencies will have me bashing away on the iPhone screen. :D

    does anyone find it odd that the first game , you cannot see the iPhone design, just like the very last game within the set of games presented. Does anyone think maybe they are using a prototype model.

    no, don't find it odd. to capture good video, it can be easier in a darkened room. and I personally filmed the last video. It was an iPod Touch.

    Too many good games, too little time. (Star Defense, at least, interests me. I'm sure I'll buy it.)

    I don't have it. I was able to play/tape it at GDC a couple of weeks ago. Can't say too much about actual game-progression since it was in "god" mode where you had unlimited funds. They were still working on gameplay balance at the time. The mechanics of the game are great. Solid/smooth.

    You have some great upcoming games coverage, Arn! :) Star Defense looks extremely polished, although it's not my type of game. Galaxy on Fire, assuming the bugs are fixed in the 1.0.1 release, also looks like a great addition to the iPhone stable (someone should do a port of the classic Wing Commander I/II games!).

    Finally, if Terminator: Salvation is indeed an extension of the engine Brothers in Arms for iPhone used, and it has the production values the former game did, resolves the minor irks with controls, and perhaps adds a little more length, it could end up being one of the best games on the iPhone despite being a movie tie-in. Brothers in Arms, aside from being too short and having control issues with the vehicles (but not on foot) was stunning.

    I might get old and die before I play Pheonix again... What a pity.

    Anyone out there... Pretty please. Pheonix please.

    You'll make an old man very happy.

    :D

    Apparently, the popular game Myst is also coming up next on the iPhone. The name will not be iMyst, but just Myst ;)

    Guys at the mystonline.com forum are talking about end of April as a possible release.

    There is also a Video from AppVee, with a preview of the game posted yesterday on YT

    GALAGA is NOW available in the US iTunes Store. $5.99

    There is also a LITE version for Free.

    I have purchased and hoping it works on 3.0 but this one goes with my classics of Missile Command and Space Invaders...God the Quarters I threw down on these games!!!:D:D:D

    The app store is chipping away at my wallet...

    Star Defense looks sweet but I wonder how it will actualy play. Part of me hopes it'll suck so I can save the $$$ :p

    Galaga

    Just picked up Galaga, my 80's video game collection is looking good! So much fun.
    Now if I can just get the real Arkanoid...

    2XL Supercross is the best game I have played for iPod Touch. Far better than anything graphics-wise, seems like your playing a PS3 game. Kinda short though, needs more options for gameplay, career mode or something like that. I finished the game in 30 minutes but it's addictive at least. The controls are amazing. A+
