Developer’s description of game: A fast-tapping game set to music.
TTR (Tap Tap Revolution) is similar to Guitar Hero…only on the iPhone! When the app is first opened there are four choices on how to import a song; new tracks, downloaded track, iTunes library and create new beats. The “New Tracks” allows you to choose one of the songs already put into the game for you. If you decide to play one of them, it will download and then go into your “Downloaded Tracks” section. The “iTunes Library” allows you to pull songs off of your iTunes and tap to those. However, they have to have beats already created for them. If they don’t have beats created you can go into “Create New Beats” which allows you to pick a song from your iTunes Library and tap out a beat to it, once the song is finished your beat is saved online and shared with people who have that song in their iTunes library.
Developer’s description of game: Minesweeper.
Mines, more commonly known as minesweeper, opens to a page of gray squares. Under each square is either a number, mine or a blank square. The point of the game is to reveal all the squares except the ones that have mines under them. To see what is under the square, make sure the “x” button at the bottom of the page is selected and then tap the square you want to see. If you want to mark the square as a mine you need to change the button at the bottom of the page to “o.” Once you have all the squares flipped over or marked as a mines, correctly, it will bring up a screen that says, “cleared” and the amount of time it took. If you flip over a square that has a mine under it you will get a screen saying, “failed” with the amount of time you played. You can just tap the screen for a new game once you have cleared or failed. Mines is available through the Conceited Software source. Here are some screenshots:
Developer’s description of game: Network pong client for iPhone.
In order to play iPong on your iPhone you would need to play against another iPhone via a local network. The game gives you the option to change the host name, change the port and whether or not to activate the networking. However, so far, you are not actually able to play this game on a network. We will update you when a fix is available. iPong is available through the AppTapp Official source. Screenshots:

Developer’s description of game: Lights Off is a fun and highly addictive puzzle game.
The object of this game is to get all of the lights to go off. When you click on a box it affects the four boxes around it. When you get all the lights to go off, or “win,” it takes you to the next stage. The first two stages are pretty easy…just getting you used to how the game works…things get a little tricker by stage three (there are 212 stages!!). On the bottom right of the screen there is an info button and a reset button. The info button gives you more information about the game and the reset button with bring you back to the start of the stage you are in (just in case you get totally messed up!). Some people LOVE this game…I however get too frustrated and end up quiting!! :) LightsOff is available through the Ste Packaging source. Here are some screenshots:

In this game your iPhone shoots a Microsoft Zune. You just click on the screen where you want the iPhone to move (you cannot click and drag it) and then you tap the Zune and your iPhone shoots a blazing fireball at the Zune which then explodes!

TicTacToe…a classic…to start the game just hit “Start Game.” Then it will say, “game in progress” and you get to make the first move. When the game is finished just click on “Again?” to play again.

Developer’s description of game: Sudoku for the iPhone.
Sudoku on the iPhone is played exactly the same as Sudoku anywhere else. The point of the game is to use the numbers 1-9 only once in a row, column and 3×3 box. It starts off by giving you a screen in which some of the numbers are already filled in…you go from there. You can add a number by clicking in a blank box, it will give you the number 1, to change it from a number 1 you just keep tapping until you have the number you want. If you get stuck and your brain starts to hurt from trying to figure it out, you can start over with a new game by hitting “new.” There is also a “check” button that tells you whether or not you really solved the puzzle. This game is TOTALLY addicting and one of my favorites. Sudoku is available through the Conceited Software source. Screenshots:
Developer’s description of game: Shoot spaceships with flying pigs in this action-packed and pointless adventure game.
The game starts off with an intro screen in which you are greeted by a muahhhhh style laugh (I give this as a warning…it is loud and it scared the crap out of me!!) Then enters a little blue spaceship at the bottom of the screen, you can move it back and forth across the bottom of the screen by tilting the iPhone. Flying over the blue spaceships are green spaceships in which you are trying to shoot. To shot you just tap the screen. Indeed, you are shooting flying pigs in this game…complete with pig sound effects when you shoot. If you hit a green spaceship with a pig you get a nice oldschool Batman cartoon style Ka-Boom graphic also complete with it’s own Ka-Boom sound effect! This game feels a lot like Asteroids and does take some skill! PigShooter is available through the Ste Packaging source. Check out the screenshots:
Developer’s description of game: Play interactive fiction on the iPhone. Plays most Infocom titles and other Z-Machine compatible games.
Three prechosen games are available in the installer under Zork Z-Code. They are Zork:_A_Trolles-Eye_view.z5, Zork:_Dungeon.z5 and Zork:_The_Cavern_of_Doom.z5. Below are screenshots of both Frotz and Zork Z-Code and they both are available through the Ste Packaging source:
Developer’s description of game: Catch butterflies in this fun, accelerometer-based demo game.
The object of this game is to catch butterflies using a net that moves when you tilt your iPhone. The butterfly moves freely on the screen as you tilt the iPhone to move the net in the path of the butterfly. It keeps track of the number of butterflies you have caught and the amount of time you have left (you get one minute). My favorite part of the game is the sound effects…as you play you feel like you are in a rain forest! Butterfly is available through the Ste Packaging source. Here are some screenshots:
