Here’s a list of ten games to play during this month. They won’t be the ten best iPhone games – any list without Angry Birds, Doom and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars is not a list of the greatest iPhone games – but they’ll be selected based on a mix of quality, novelty and relevance
The iPhone version of the popular Flash game. Graphics are blurry and reduced view makes it a bit more difficult for decent players (I’m just as rubbish at this version as the web version), but still very playable.
