Games to play at the gym?

Ok so I was hoping someone had discovered an easy to control game that you can play on the elliptical or MAYBE walking on the treadmill (I say maybe cuz its hard enough for ME to stay on the treadmill never mind me playing a game on the treadmill - elliptical better chance). Figured some out for the bike but you can do usually anything on the bike (read, etc). Just wondering if this is a pointless search.

Word games are fun to play, and require only 1 hand (usually).

Hmm true - I (as probably everyone) have a few of them on my device. Tried Adubble and that was a horror show, obviously none of the TD games game work, but yeah a one hander might do the trick. Maybe Scoops or Sky Burger?

No to both, don't an acellero based game when running as it might throw it off balance...

I would say iBlast Moki when it comes out, since you do everything, then press the blast button, and there's no accelerometer in-game. Perfect type of game for the gym, and anywhere else.

I would say just work out and play games later :S Why would you need to workout and play with your ipod at the same time Am I missing something, I couldn't see someone running/using an elliptical trying to play a game.
