I honestly don’t love the iPhone (or Touch to be more specific) as a gaming platform. The lack of any actual buttons makes playing a lot of games incredibly difficult and a vast majority of the games are no better than something you would play in a browser. Having said that, the abundance of games and the frequency of free games makes for a constantly evolving platform. Quantity and easy access provides a alternative to expensive and admittedly far superior console games. This is a long way of saying I’ve been sucked into frequently checking what new games are out and even what games are free (even though the Touch is jail broken ironically enough).
The app store is absolutely littered with insanely horrible games. Even some of the better games are missing important elements such as a story, decent graphics, or more than 20 minutes of game play. This lack of polish it not without it’s more amusing moments. The app store is littered with “engrish“. The descriptions themselves can become a great source of amusement. Perhaps not quite on the same level as “All your base are belong to us” but funny never the less.
Vampire’s Library’s description says this:
You are Vampire`s Assistant. Your Master most like to read Book. But he never cleanup. His Library is not clean always.
CleanUp all Books. It`s your work. If you move too slow, Your Master does drinking your blood.
Glutton Truck brings us this interesting description:
You can eat enemy cars as being to drive a car.
Eat a lot, further increasing the size of your car,
you will be able to eat car more big.
Also, if you crash the enemy and you will get the double score.
You do not touch enemy if them bigger than you.
See Energy Bar on left top of screen. you can know your size.
Finally, you have triggered your turbo when your energy bar full.
Please see “How to Play” menu in Game. That is a more detail description.
Finally, Destroy9 – Alien says this piece of wonderment:
The Enemies are made of special artificial intelligence
will disturb you and high sensitivity, cool action will be excited.
It’s almost beautiful, like a haiku or something…
Oh yeah, I can’t forget Ralph’s app: Ralph Watson – Official App. It’s not funny or anything but it’s a app and it’s RW’s so….
