Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Let's talk about iphone/ipod touch games

    It is entirely the lack of feedback.

    I'm going on a airplane trip and looking for a good iPod Touch game to take with me. I've already played hte shit out of Dungeon Master, Space Miner and Angry Birds (Only missing 3stars on 7-13......).

    What are some good games to keep my attention in flight? I'm thinking perhaps GTA China Wars or something.

    Sword & Poker 1 and 2
    Beneath a Steel Sky
    Civilization Revolution
    Sally's Spa
    Fighting Fantasy: Warlock of Firetop Mountain
    possibly Highborn, haven't spent enough time with it yet to wholeheartedly recommend it

    Surviving High School.

    No, really. It's a dollar, the character writing quality is actually quite decent (if sanded down for the teen market), and you get a new 20 min episode every week. The default story is an inoffensive choose-your-own-adventure style thing to while away a few hours.

    More legitimately, Phoenix Wright (if you haven't tried it) is possible the best value for money on the platform - $5 for 15-20 hours of top-notch mystery and fairly offbeat humour.

    Awesome! Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check all those out. I've heard nothing but good about Phoenix Wright, I meant to give that a looksee!

    Bit Pilot has been my drug of choice as of recently. Badass chiptunes, great Geometry Wars-ish bullet-dodging and neat unlockables (new background music and two wallpapers). Plus it's only 99 cents, AFAIK. And I'd definitely recommend any of the point-and-clicks on the store if you're into that kind of thing; I have Secret of Monkey Island, Beneath a Steel Sky and the first Simon the Sorcerer and I like them all, plus I've played the DS port of Broken Sword and that's fantastic as well.

    EDIT: Sigma looks rad as hell!

    And Robot Unicorn Attack is out now! $2.99.

    Chaos Rings, Final Fantasy or Plants vs. Zombies.

    I'd highly suggest Chaos Rings.

    Yeah, you really just have to suck it up and start giving those manicures, and you'll get addicted quickly Wrestle a bear afterward to maintain the balance, if you have to.

    So if all goes according to plan my Ipod touch will arrive today. I'm already set with angry birds as soon as it gets here, and will no doubt go on a spending spree late into tonight.

    One thing I'd like is a decent game that I could play with my sister via wifi who has an iphone and lives across the country. She's a pretty casual gamer, anything easy to get a grip on that's competitive / cooperative for quick 2-player sessions?

    Okay, peeps—we're reaching the 100 page max, so I'm attempting to organize a new OP into something loosely resembling our favorite games and such. Hit me with your recommendations! I'm already including:

    - Bit Pilot, Tilt to Live, Espgaluda II, Space Invaders Infinity Gene, Space Miner, Plants vs. Zombies, Edge, Spider: Secret of Bryce Manor, Canabalt, Soosiz, Peggle, Hook Champ, Flight Control, Angry Birds, Monkey Island SE, Beneath a Steel Sky, Drop7, Eliss, Puzzle Quest, Minigore, Real Racing, Geodefense Swarm and Words with Friends.

    What other no-questions-asked must-haves are you obsessing over? I was trying to figure out if we should create a Wiki or if that's just overkill, and I can just periodically update the OP with a few favorites. And feel free to disagree with me on my above list if you really feel they're not wholly endorsed.

    EDIT: New thread here! With new OP and everything! Validate me!

    I'm really liking 100 Rogues now that its got a couple of patches in it, and Battle for Wesnoth seems like a given.

    Yes, Battle for Wesnoth!

    I also like I Dig It and Unify. I figure people are familiar with I Dig It so I'll just post a video of Unify:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1W3D-f7edv8

    It's 1.99 and there is a Lite version.

    I've been playing with the Lite version of Qbism, as well. Very stylish and the controls are smooth.

    Yes, the game is pretty decent.

    But the loading time scares me away...it takes about 2 minutes to load everytime you switch maps

    actually it's meant for you to take a nap while it loads; it's for your own good.
