    I want something that will amaze my friends and family. My uncle trys to brag about his new samsung vibrant (which is very laggy and slow) but he just won't admit his phone is crappy. Can be games or apps, suggestions?

    the vibrant isn't crappy.

    i don't like your attitude.

    gun range is a nice tech demo, though

    Uhm I've been playing with it for days just trying android and it just isn't smooth. Battery isn't good either. What attitude? I was just asking for advice, might just be my teenager typing lol sorry if it sounded like I was giving attitude.

    the 'i wanna impose my taste in smartphones onto others who might be perfectly happy with their phones trying to spoil it for them' attitude

    if your uncle likes his android widgets, his bigger screen, his slightly more vibrant (no pun intended) colors, why try to make him "admit his phone is crappy"

    I would go for some high res games, like NOVA (which, for example, can make use of the gyroscope). Or just something easier like high resolution movies with nice special effects. For example: I've got the Lion King and Titanic on my iPhone 4 and takes maximal advantage of iPhone 4's screen.

    But NOVA is kinda like the best iPhone 4 game. There are also other nice games like Supermarket Mania, Airport Mania, The Deep Pinball etc.

    Seriouslyy people on here are rude. There are only a few decent people that actually help without adding negative feedback. I justt want to know games, you don't have to add anything else.

    Gameloft are pretty much flying through their app back catalogue and updating them to look good on the Retina Display.

    All taken on my iPhone 4.

    Let's Golf 2

    Seeing these games moving, at full frame rate, on the Retina Display itself, is something else. I can't wait to see what games developer exclusively for the iPhone 4 look like. Until then, would Capcom kindly update Street Fighter 4 and Resident Evil 5 for the Retina Display.

    Truth be told, I've seen very little games on the Android platform that rival those found on the iPhone. What developers are doing on the iPhone, especially the iPhone 4 with Retina Display updates, is superb.

    Again though, this is an Apple forum for people who like and use Apple equipment. You're going to find that some people will talk down other products, just like 360 owners do about the Wii and PS3 on their forums.

    If you don't like that, then you know where the door is.

    just trying to help her be a better person by being tolerant of different opinions about gadgets, sorry bout that.

    go ahead and create a fangirl, shoving the iPhone 4 up peoples throats, bragging how great it is.
    That's exactly the type of Apple user we all like to be associated with!

    *hooray*

    As for Gameloft, the graphics are great...but it's not full retina display yet. They may say it is, but all the text is blurry still. Kind of pisses me off. Let's Golf 2 is still a great game though.

    Yeah, I've noticed some of the text isn't as crisp as the likes of Real Racing, which received a brilliant HD update for the Retina Display and is high resolution throughout the app.

    The person simply wanted to know good games to show off the iPhone 4, which they are excited at owning.

    People, especially family and friends, goad one another all the time.

    No-one is "creating a fanboy/girl", I simply replied to the topic of the thread.

    You, on the other hand, did not. The OP did not ask you to go Oprah on them and make them a "better person". They wanted to know which games were optimised for the iPhone 4 and looked good on the new display.

    I guess all we do is wait until they fix it. I was still playing Let's Golf 2 for 2 hours last night. Drained 20% of my battery...damn battery hog app.

    Edit: It's not really a game but I have this on here for showing off the display and just for showing off what it can do. I have the iHandy Carpenter app and just let it show everyone how level everything is. People are always amazed.

    After telling her how bad of a person she is. You shouldn't pass unwanted judgement on a forum.

    I feel like there's always one antagonist per thread on these forums...:rolleyes:

    But back on topic... I'm all for Enigmo 2. That has some great graphics.
