10 Best Games For Your iPhone 4S

Want some great games for your iPhone 4S? That A5 microprocessor of the iPhone 4S is the same chip that’s used to power the iPad 2. At twice the speed and with seven times the graphics power compared to the iPhone 4’s A4, there’s a lot of resource room. Developers can now make games - real games - to compete with the likes of the Nintendo 3DS and Sony’s upcoming PlayStation Vita.

The A5’s horsepower and the iOS’ increasingly always-in-your-pocket presence compared to these rival portable game devices is only going to give developers more incentive to create lifelike environments for you to get lost in. In time, expect to see more than Angry Birds, Cut the Rope and Fruit Ninja populating best-selling lists in the App Store Here's our list of the ten best games for your iPhone 4S.

5 Ways The iPhone 4S Is Great for Gamers

That annual indecision of whether or not we should upgrade our iPhones is upon us. Carriers strong-arm you into new contracts, the feature-rich iOS 5 blunts the allure of some of iPhone 4S’ capabilities and there’s always the threat that an iPhone 5 is right around the corner (for real this time). Worst of all, you can’t let someone else determine your iPhone fate for you; asking for an one as a gift is impossible. The carriers have you personally tied down to that two-year contract so well that you end up getting a gift card from a loved one. Kind of a lame present to open. So, your only solution is to weigh your options carefully.

Luckily for gamers, iPhone 4S has the hardware to back up its hype.

Has it really been that long? Next week marks the 10th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III, one of the landmark games that literally changed everything for gamers. At the New York Comic Con, Rockstar tried hard to ensure that you’ll want to indulge in the open world mayhem of GTA 3 all over again – on iOS devices like the iPad2 and the iPhone 4S.
With all the stunning new games being offered every week, why would gamers want to revisit the old game? Aren’t those graphics ancient now, so much so that the game should be nothing more than a wonderful, salient memory of a time gone by? That kind of thinking makes sense. But if you saw what I saw, you’ll probably be psyched to play those classic courier missions all over again.

The best mobile video games can be hard to find, simply because of the sheer amount of titles out there. But, worry not! Welcome to G4's Knuckle Up, where we bring you a byte-sized view of our five favorite mobile games every week. The mobile space is filled with incredible games that will keep you busy for minutes, hours, or even days -- we'll let you know what we're playing and why we're playing it. Here's our top five games this week.


I go nuts when a new Katamari game is released. I don’t care what platform it’s on, there’s a general sense of elation for the Prince and his rolling ball of fun. Katamari Amore is a followup to I Love Katamari on iOS, and it doesn’t disappoint. If you’ve never played a Katamari game before, the concept is simple: roll a sticky ball around and pick up increasingly large things (start small with stuff like paper clips and work your way up to skyscrapers). It’s patently awesome in all the right ways: joyful, funny, silly, and weird.

This time around, instead of shelling out cash up front, you’re able to get Katamari Amore for free; however, the only thing available in the free version is one stage’s “Time Attack Mode.” If you want all the story modes, you’ll have to grab them via in-app purchase. While the camera can sometimes be annoying when you’re backed up against a wall, it doesn’t hamper your overall enjoyment of the game, and you can also customize the controls to your liking.

There’s nothing quite like the Katamari franchise, and Katamari Amore is another win for the series.

Microsoft Unveils Windows Phone 7 Lineup

In case it hasn't been made abundantly clear, Microsoft is looking to thread together its PC, mobile and gaming platforms. Next year's release of Windows 8 will bring a lot of these ideas to the forefront, but Windows Phone 7 is already making headway in the cross-platform space. A newly revealed upcoming WP7 app will allow Xbox 360 users to take control of their console... remotely.

The Xbox Companion App is "coming soon" to Microsoft OS-powered devices, according to The Windows Blog. In addition to being able to search through Xbox Live Marketplace and explore additional information about the content there on the web, you'll actually have the option of using your mobile device as what amounts to a remote control for your Xbox 360. There's no specific release date, but you can safely bet we won't see this app until after the new console dashboard launches later this year.

iPhone/iPad: $7.99

Just when the rising shouts of handheld gamers screaming “mobile will never look as good as console or dedicated handhelds” hit its peak, Shadowgun came blazing in and shot everyone down. This game looks incredible, and plays better. This third person shooter is everything you want a mobile game to be: there’s a good story, a compelling protagonist, and a flat-out fun time shooting down anyone that gets in your way.

You play as John Slade, a ruthless bounty hunter who happens to look scarily similar to Bruce Willis. You’ve been tasked to bring in (or hunt down) Dr. Edgar Simon, a geneticist with an underground fortress filled with experiments gone bad. Make no mistake, Shadowgun really delivers on its single-player experience; going through the game on normal difficulty took around 6 hours for me, and I found it challenging, yet never frustratingly hard. It also translates well to iOS’s smaller screens, which was a welcome surprise.

If it’s any indication, the Unity platform (what Shadowgun is built on) has a bright future ahead in terms of game graphics and development. If you don’t believe me, check out their next titleBladeslinger. And those of you on Android, longing for some gorgeous TPS action? You won’t have long to wait, as it looks like we’ll see Shadowgun on Android in October.

Amazon Announces Kindle Fire, A Color Tablet That Plays Games Too

Amazon just announced the Kindle Fire, which lets you do a whole lot more than read books. The company released a total of four new Kindle devices, that range in price from the cheap-as-dirt $79 Kindle to the would-be iPad killer the Fire.

The Android-powered Fire is full color and only costs $199. It's a color tablet featuring book-reading, video playing, web-browsing, cloud-storage, a touch-screen, and because nothing can be announced without them, games. Examples given include Plants Vs. Zombies, Fruit Ninja, and, of course, Angry Birds. But there will be thousands of apps and games available, as any Android app will run on the thing.

I'll admit it - I love Minecraft. It brings back a lot of fond memories of building ridiculous structures with Legos. Well, on September 29, Minecraft will be heading to Android phones. And on that day productivity will die around the world. Check out the video showing off the touch-screen controls.

Android: $0.99 (Launch Sale)

If you’re looking for a game that will make you constantly wonder “...what the hell is this?” and keep you amused because of its outright weirdness, Serious Sam: Kamizake Attack is a great choice. Play as a headless kamikaze looking to blow Sam into smithereens, all while completing bonus challenges and dodging hazards in each stage.

While the arcade action sounds pretty straightforward, it’s also anything but boring. I can’t help but love SS:KA for its totally bizarre premise and gameplay. I found myself in fits of giggles as your headless muscle man bellows whilst kicking various items out of the way. Too much kicking, and your rage meter overloads. Kick while overloaded, and your kamikaze explodes in a shower of human meat. It’s delightfully morbid. If you do happen to make it to the end of the level, Sam appears and you leap onto him, taking out the both of you in a spectacular full-body explosion.

It’s on sale right now in both the App Store and the Android Market, so snatch it up and revel in its quirk for a buck. Let’s all blow up Sam together!
