For me the iPhone and the iPod Touch are also great gaming devices, of course not as good as the PSP from Sony or the Nintendo DS, but enough to entertain me whenever I am bored, waiting for the metro or commuting. With over 100K games available in app store there is very difficult to find the best iPhone games. To give you a hand with your search we looked around on the blogs and tried to find answer these questions:
What are the best iPhone games? What are the top free iPhone games? What are the best paid iPhone games?

We find some really nice options for you and we decided to write a few blog posts on this. We shall start with a list of free games for iPhone. Of course these are also free games for iPod Touch.

Cube is a singleplayer and multiplayer first person shooter that provides satisfying and fast oldskool gameplay. This opensource game is built on an entirely new and very unconventional engine. Cube is a landscape-style engine that pretends to be an indoor FPS engine, which combines very high precision dynamic occlusion culling with a form of geometric mipmapping on the whole world for dynamic LOD for configurable fps & graphic detail. Most of the engine design is targeted at reaching feature richness through simplicity of structure and brute force, rather than finely tuned complexity.

This iphone port is provided by fernLightning is a technology demo that supports all of the functionality of the desktop version including multiplayer, in-game editing, cooperative editing, demo recording, etc (though some of these are impractical on the iphone) – please visit the official Cube homepage http://www.cubeengine.com/ for more information. Furthermore we encourage people to check out the newest version of Cube – Cube 2: Sauerbraten – a far more powerful and modern version.

fernLighting thanks Wouter van Oortmerssen of dot3labs for his permission to release this port.

>:( (by Drtyjkl)
This game is great, except the multiplayer doesn’t work. When u try to connect to a server, it says it’s an illegal network message and it quits you out. If that is fixed and u put this game for 99 cents, u’d be makin some money. No doubt it’d be in the top 10 somewhere. Add me on gameloft "Drtyjkl" PS. If anyone knows what map the middle screenshot is, plz tell me

Take charge of your own Non-Line-of-Sight (NLOS) Cannon, the revolutionary gun that represents the future of U.S. Field Artillery. Use simulated elevation and velocity controls to destroy enemy targets with indirect fire.

As rounds are complete, the number of targets will increase, as well as the difficulty and point value of new targets. Some targets will eventually require precise timing to hit.

Download and play this addictive simulation!
