I just finished updating my iPhone and computer (and solving a little problem) and got some of the new apps loaded.
Overall I have to say that I am VERY impressed with Apples efforts and the gaming potential of the iPhone. I knew it had a pretty screen and some decent horsepower hidden in there, but I have to say I am, again, very impressed with the potential. Note that word: potential.
The first round of software, at least from a gaming perspective, is neat but still in the early stages of development. The price is pretty close for some stuff, but I think they might need to keep everything pretty low to move units. Below is a video of me playing Super Monkey Ball. It cost $10.00. This is part of the whole iPhone 3G and iPhone 2.0 rollout.
There have been some serious issues with the rollout, but today the software is working fine and I have to say that the results speak for themselves.
I should have a couple more video reviews coming up. Especially one for Tetris. This looks like it might be a definitive version. It works wonderfully with the touch-screen. The iPhone may very well turn out to be as innovative as the Wii for gaming.
I’m still getting the software installed on the new laptop, so a bit of paitence as I recreate the video studio for mobile production. Then more should be on the way.
