The iPhone is a hybrid of the iPod and the Mac, all compacted into the size of your palm. The iPhone will continue to dominate the touch screen cell phone market. Even though Steve Jobs has had problems with his health and is taking a leave of absence, and Apple has suffered during the hard economic times, the iPhone continues to be one of the top selling cell phones.
iPhone games are amazing. That’s because iPhone has variety of features available like the Multi-Touch interface, the accelerometer, GPS, real-time 3D graphics, and 3D positional audio. Here is top 10 list of Free/Commercial iPhone games available online.
1. Quake for iPhone
This is awesome! you can play quake on your iPhone and it’s the real deal!
It doesn’t utilize the accelerometer or neworking like promised in posts over the web but you get to play the game on your iPhone with all the cool graphics and sound, you do get to use the shotgun, the grenades and all the rest of the weapon arsenal.
You can use single player or multilayer and save the game and continue. In order to navigate you use the 4 arrows on the left and the two buttons on your right to jump or shoot.
2. Super Monkey Ball
The game features 5 worlds and 110 levels, and 3 modes of play (Main Game, Instant Play, and Practice). Instant Play is for when you only have a few minutes to devote to the game, and a random level is selected for you. Practice is where you can go to spend time trying to discover the correct way to move through a particularly challenging level.
You must collect all the bananas and beat the clock by reaching the goal at the end of each level. Beat all ten levels, and you unlock the next world.
The game relies on the iPhone’s accelerometers to move the character, a monkey inside a ball, through various puzzle boards without falling off the edge. However, the tilt and steering are so sensitive, it is nearly impossible to comfortably control your character. And, the game designers did not add a way to adjust the steering sensitivity.
3. Texas Hold’em
