7. Guerrilla Bob
Let me just start by saying this: Guerrilla Bob is an outstanding, mind-blowing, absolutely, positively amazing game. Hyped it up enough? Well, probably not, as it would be hard to do justice to this iPhone game. Guerrilla Bob is a dual-stick shooter that takes the normal formula (wave after wave of enemies, limited guns, decent animations) and turns it on its head. With stunning graphics, an exceptionally large arsenal, and actual level progression, this game has become one of the best of its kind. Chillingo seems to have hit the gold here, and they took it by a large margin. You can get your finger on the trigger for only $2.99!
Are you jealous of the fact that the iPhone 3GS can record video? Well, with iCamcorder, you no longer need to be. iCamcorder is an application that allows you to 'record' video using your iPhone, even if it is not the most recent version. By taking 15 pictures a second, and recording audio in-sync, iCamcorder creates a slide show that, for all intents and purposes, acts like a video recording. This is pretty amazing, and it is quite nice to be able to do the latest thing with some older technology. Get your friends together and record your fun for only $1.99. Please note, this will not work on the iPad as it has no camera.
5. Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars
Grand Theft Auto is one of the most innovative series of the last two decades. Continuing on this legacy, Rockstar Games decided to release their latest iteration on the iPod Touch and the iPhone. The game, which is a basic dual-stick shooter, follows Huang Lee as he tries to avenge his father's murder. The game is quick, intuitive, and quite fun to play. While it is intensive (which causes some lag occasionally), the overall feel is polished and outstanding, which, of course, is what we have come to expect from Rockstar. While GTA: Chinatown Wars will set you back $9.99, it is well worth the price.
