I wish I had more time to review games. I love reviewing iPhone games, because they are cheap and easy to get a hold of, and I usually have all the latest games. The only thing I lack is time, which I guess I could substitue a bit of gaming time to write some. I have always had a joy in journalism and creative writing and applying it to video game reviews. I would be more than happy to do this too, but I don't have anything serious up so yeah... lol

Prove to me your skills. Give me a thorough, detailed review of both of Iliad and The Odyssey. Then we shall see if thou art worthy for iPhone games.

Wouldn't that be more of a review for Stanza?

I would like to give reviews as well. Because I've written a lot before in the Appstore.

Recent purchases: Pac man CE, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, Mecho Wars, and Chaos Rings.
Upcoming Games I plan to get: Splinter Cell, GoF2

no.1- It isn't lkely you have their app unless you own about 50,000 of them.
No.2- You will review it with your own money if you actually want to buy the game
no.3- This is basically a bending of the rules to ask developers for promocodes

OMG Age of Mythology. That game was epic.

As one of the developers I see the request for promo codes from a person with 47 posts, and I think "Not a chance."

Both people I've given codes to tonight have over 1000 posts, and seem to be quite well regarded in the forums (I've only been lurking here for a week, and just registered).
I still intend to give some more codes away tonight, but seeing as there is a limit on the amount available to us as devs it makes no sense to just throw them out willy nilly to anyone when we don't even know if the person is ever going to comment on a game again.
If I send someone a code, I don't *expect* a review. But chances are I'm throwing them a code because they a) seem to have a habit of talking about the games they play b) will likely pass it on to someone they think will enjoy it. and c) hope the game is actually good enough that it will inspire an active community member to say "I liked this", and not take a big steaming poop on it

My two cents,
Cheers.
