Iphone/Ipod Games

canabaltIphone/Ipod Games

It’s been a while since the last time i suggested a few iphone/ipod games. I have one more for you to try out this week.

Canabalt (Pocketgamer review) is the latest addition to my ipod games collection. I am not too keen on playing games on the ipod but this title has really changed things in the past few days. It’s a blast and has a fantastic soundtrack (just one song actually i think) to go along with it. You have to play it with your earphones on to appreciate it. You can try the game on the PC (Link) but like i said the optimum set up is on the ipod/iphone with your headphones on.

About the Author


Costas Taliadoros is an accountant by profession but a gamer at heart. He was born in Nicosia in 1977 and was raised by Donkey Kong. At a very young age he started piloting F-15 Strike Eagles over the Iraqi and Libyan deserts and has also seen action in an M1 Ambraams tank somewhere in Eastern Europe fighting against the Soviets. As the years went by, he was integrated into Civilization until he finally conquered the world and sent the first human mission to Alpha Centauri. He graduated from the International Superstar Soccer academy and moved back to Cyprus to start his career. In this dark period of his life he fought and swore against 3 more Master Chiefs on a 4-way split-screen all day and night. It was around this period that he also started traveling to Live in many places around the world but mostly the USA. There, he met a lot of young American teenagers who were willing to discuss topics like his mother and the colour of his skin in great detail. It only strengthened his belief that he still has a lot to learn in this life. Nowadays Costas can be found on a couch playing games with friends and foes, with beer in close proximity. He is just a non-professional “writer” who loves games, books, comics, football, and running. He is also writing in the video-game site he co-founded, www.forevergamers.com, and on his personal blog, www.lostingames.net.
