Radio Flare REDUX by Chillingo Ltd

(4.85/5) Radio Flare REDUX for the iPhone and iPod touch is a music-based shoot 'em up with great graphics, awesome beats, and fun levels. Monsters fly at you while you carefully maneuver between them while targeting them with missiles. The monsters emerge in sync with the beat of the music, and provides for an awesome experience. However, the screen flashes in different colors a lot, which may cause headaches or seizures from excessive playing. In the end, you will come out satisfied from the great graphics, gameplay, and modern music. The game is definitely worth the $2.99 asking price, and you can pick it up from the app store today. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/radio-flare-redux/id358940758?mt=8

Gravity Guy by Miniclip.com

(3.2/5) Gravity Guy for the iPhone and iPod touch is a very addictive and adrenaline-filled game. You control the gravity guy as he is trying to escape from prison.

(4.3/5) iStunt 2 for the iPhone and iPod touch is a very addictive physics platforming game.

Red Ball 3 by Chillingo Ltd

(2.75/5) Red Ball 3 for the iPhone and iPod touch is the sequel to Red Ball and Red Ball 2. In comparison to the other two games, Red Ball 3 is a great improvement. The controls are better, the story is a little bit better, and the graphics are WAY better. However, I couldn't really get into it. The game is quite short, with only 30 quick levels, and the game has floaty controls. The character ends up flying all over the screen, not going where you want it to go. The game can be completed in half an hour to an hour, providing some quick platforming fun. The game is a good deal for the $0.99 asking price, so if you like platforming games, pick it up now. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/red-ball-3/id426371390?mt=8

Mighty Fin by Launching Pad Games

(4.9/5) Mighty Fin for the iPhone and iPod Touch is a very cute and fun game. You control a fish named Fin as he is going on a vacation. Along the way, you will want to collect different costumes for Fin and Bubbles to increase your score. To go deeper in the ocean, all you have to do is tap and hold. To go higher or even leap out of the water, just let go of your finger. The graphics are amazing, and all of the 8 levels are unique. The later levels will become hard, but the addictiveness of the game will make you want to keep coming back for more. Overall, this game is a steal for the $0.99 cents it costs. Kids and adults alike will love it, so pick it up now. http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/mighty-fin/id434539624?mt=8

Velocispider by Retro Dreamer

(4.9/5) Velocispider for the iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad is a fun arcade shooter. The story is quite simple. You are a velocispider (part velociraptor, part spider), equipped with a gun on the top of your head. You tilt your device to control your character, while automatically shooting. You can tap and hold to charge up a more powerful weapon. The controls are simple (and actually work-a good sign), the graphics are retro and modern mixed, the game has a catchy soundtrack, and fun bosses and cutscenes. However, the difficulty in some levels is quite steep, but that should not stop you from picking up this awesome game for $0.99 http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/velocispider/id433011745?mt=8
