I own a ton of games for my iPhone and iPod Touch, but I always seem to be looking for new ones.  Lately I’ve been looking for inexpensive games that don’t take long to learn or play.  Ones that although seem simple are both challenging and more importantly addictive.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Madden 10 and Sandstorm but everyone needs a good time waster on their iPhone, too.

Instead of taking tons of screen shots, I’ve decided to show you three of my favorite games of late on video.

Remember, these games aren’t super graphically intensive and they don’t feature amazing sound effects.

They’re simple, affordable, addictive games that’ll keep you coming back for more.

First up is Doodle Jump.  The game is available for 99 cents in the iTunes App Store.

And Run, which sells for, you guessed it, 99 cents in the App Store.

It’s not surprising that each one of these games appears high up in the list of popular applications in the iTunes App Store.  With a low price and addictive game style, each one will keep you coming back for more.

  1. Hi Larry! Thank you for the tips! I know this sounds like a shameless plug but you should try our latest game for the iPhone/iPod–Card Drop. I just thought it would fit your genre. 🙂
