Bouncedown – FREE
The hugely popular PC game, Bouncedown, is now available on the iPhone and iPod Touch thanks to Jagex Games Studio brings. It‚Äôs cute, it‚Äôs bouncy and it‚Äôs free which goes some way to explaining why it‚Äôs leapt straight into the top 100.
Touch Pets Dogs 10 Food ARF – FREE
Remember kids, a dog is for life, not just for Christmas. Unless you download the free Touch Pets Dogs 10 Food Arf update which offers k9 ownership without any of the bothersome real life responsibility. This winter theme is a delightful little addition to the game‚Äôs already impressive DLC and just one more reason to snaffle it up.

Red Conquest! – $3.99
Real-time-strategy games don‚Äôt get much more stylized than this intergalactic war-em-up. Featuring both single player campaign and 8 player WIFI and Bluetooth multiplayer, Red Conquest is fighting fit in the features stakes. It ought to be, those blue guys are a real pest!
Angry Birds – $.99
This charming little game full of foul mouthed members of the orthicon persuasion, takes the castle defense formula and twists it belligerently into something more akin to castle attack. There are 63 levels promised for hours of gameplay.
Snow Moto Racing – $.99
This rich 3D racer has been a long time coming and now that it‚Äôs here, it‚Äôs looking as pure as the driven snow. Six tracks, dynamic difficulty plus local Bluetooth multiplayer spells all I want for Christmas.
Pac-Man Championship Edition – $2.99
The classic never dies, so long as it isn‚Äôt accosted by one of several multi-coloured ghosts. Not much to report here except to say, this just released old-timer is looking sharp on the iPhone and it‚Äôs sporting a cheaper introductory price. Gobble it up now.
Tom Clancy‚Äôs H.A.W.X. – $6.99
A big budget console title that‚Äôs coming home to roost on the iPhone. This arcade flight simulator is heavy on action and battles, grounding some of the more intricate and slightly less fun elements of real aircraft flight. The perfect title to show off what your iPhone can do to anyone who gets a PSP for Christmas.
Fallen EP-1 – $4.99
Survival horror games are somewhat undersubscribed on the iPhone so it‚Äôs great to see this creepy looking title is coming in episodic form to fill the void. It‚Äôs 2.5D and the locations are gorgeously dark and forboding – the perfect antidote to all this Christmas cheer that‚Äôs around just now – bah humbug.
SEED 1 – RISE OF DARKNESS – $2.99
This Chillingo published effort looks like just the sort of game to get your teeth
into, if you‚Äôre looking for something with a bit of depth. It‚Äôs got all the character leveling you could hope for with a whole encyclopedia of quests to deal with. It‚Äôs also almost half price just now so score this bargain while you can.
