Pocketgamer.biz has published a list of the best mobile games of 2008 so far. Luckily for the games that made the list, the dozens of games on Apple‘s App Store hadn’t gone on sale yet.
The game industry site awarded the top spot to RealArcade‘s Playman Summer Games 3, which brings to mind all those high school field day events as players compete in the 100 meter dash, long jump, 100 meter hurdles, pole vault and javelin. This is followed by HandyGames’ Townsmen 5 dragon-fighting strategy game and Exozet’s Catan: The First Island, which is based on the strategy board game Settlers of Catan.
At the other end of the spectrum, the bottom three games all come from the movies: Iron Man (Hands-On), The Incredible Hulk (Hands-On) and Rambo Forever (In-Fusio). Mobile tie-ins are becoming standard practice for blockbuster movies, but if this list is any indication, mobile games based on action flicks aren’t seeing much action.
