Three new App store games worth checking out

IMG_0184.JPG

At the Apple announcement today, Jobs invited several game makers up on stage to introduce some cool new App store games that exploit unique features of the iPhone/iPod Touch. Here are my three favorite examples:

1. Madden NFL 10
EA’s oh-so-popular football game is finally available at the App store. Cool feature: you can draw plays with your finger on the screen and then watch your fave team execute them.

2. Nova
Gameloft’s first-person-shooter pits you against aliens in a mission to defend humanity — if you play it on your iPhone or iPod Touch, you can set your sniper mission to your choice of music.

3. Riddim Ribbon
Tapulous, the company behind Tap Tap Revenge, is a new rhythm racing game. Tilt the phone to follow a race track and bust out remixes of Black Eyed Peas songs.
