After making his debut in 1995, Rayman will be coming to the iPhone and iPod touch soon. While I haven’t been a fan of it, I’ve always been a fan of the crazy ravin’ rabbids in the game. What’s awesome though is that this game looks so much like the old school consoles games. As Rayman, you must recapture the great Protoon after it has been stolen. You’ll also need to free the Electoons and restore the world’ harmony. It closely resembles and sounds like Sonic and even something like say the Lion King. Plus, it looks fun! What other need must you fulfill while sitting down in the subway waiting for the time to pass you by?

Strikers 1945 Plus, Psikyo’s classic World War II vertical shooter, is now available in the Apps Store, and I am smiling from ear to ear. The 2D shmup devoured huge chunks of my meager Funcoland paychecks when I was in my early to mid 20s, which is remarkably depressing in retrospect when you ponder the [...]
The iPhone/iPod touch now has Strikers 1945 Plus. I am now similing. Psikyo’s classic World War II vertical shooter devoured huge chunks of my meager Funcoland paychecks when I was in my early to mid 20s, which is sorta kinda sad when you ponder the fact that I worked in a game store only to [...]

My biggest gripe against the rhythm game genre as a whole is the heavy reliance and focus of the guitar as the central gameplay element.
