    All guides are text-only to avoid any copyright issues with the gaming companies, but they are broke down by level or game section, and include FAQs, Secrets, etc. You can just take your iPod/iPhone with you while playing the game and pop it out when you need some help!

    No more searching Google and browsing to various web sites looking for help. Best of all, these are FREE forever.

    Video game guides fall within the US Copyright guideline laws of "fair use". Since we're not actually copying the game, just making a supplement of how to play the game, we are well within our legal rights to publish this guide. The fact that it's free helps even more in the eyes of copyright law. We are avoiding screenshots of the games for now until the guides are published on the App Store. We'll then look into our legal rights to see if we can update these apps with screenshots.

    Most guides were actually used with permission from GameFAQ guide creators. Here are the advantages of the iPhone apps over GameFAQ:

    - Don't have to open Safari and zoom in with your fingers. No searching. No URL's.

    - The app uses a Navigation controller, so you can just jump to "Level 6" right away. There is no scrolling and searching in that regard.

    - The app has an icon of the actual game, so it's easy to find and jump to when you need to get to the guide.

    - The iPhone apps have rich text in parts of the guides, and will be updated with more later. They will be full HTML based, with screenshots possibly added in the future. GameFAQ just has plain text files for the most part.


    If anyone wants to request a specific guide for any game, please reply to this thread listing which guides you'd like to see.
