Has the ring of the old 64-in-1 illegal Gameboy cartridges...sorry, I'm sure you are legit though?? Good idea!! A better UI would be good though and is it possible to switch to another game without restarting the app?

Initial Impressions

It seems a thread on this game dissapeared.

I caved in and bought it due to LordGek and you peer pressure types.

These games are pretty damned mediocre. At least you get a good sized pile of them for your buck.

There are 8 full games ($0.99 each in iTunes) and 3 lite versions (free, of course) in here. They are on separate pages, so you mostly see the full games, then click a different tab for the Lite versions. This is displayed like the ramps are in Ramp Champ, with number of plays and high scores recorded (almost) You can leave a game and go back to the menu and select another one.

Here's my rundown of the games:

Ace Destroyer: One of the better games, is fun to play, but feels aimless. You tilt the device to move your plane around, and tap to shoot machine guns and drop torpedoes. Kinda like a poor man's Afterburner.

321 Jump: Also one of the better ones, if it were a tad more animated, I'd play it more than Papi Jump and/or Rock Climber. Supposedly Bluetooth compatible, I will have to see how that works. There are ? boxes, which all seem to do bad things.

Bubble Master: My favorite of the pack, (icon shows as Bubble Blaster) This is Pang with a great visual style. Tilt to move, tap to shoot. Bosses, etc.

iSign: Decent amount of graphics/sound/animation, but boils down to a fortune teller. At least you get bits of Chinese and English to read. Does not update Scores/Plays

iSniper: If you've played a sniper game on the platform, it should be on par with this. Tap to zoom in, tap to fire (tilt to aim while zoomed) Plays just fine, but is fairly bland. I wish the enemies wouldn't just pop into existence, if they'd lean out windows, climb up over ledges or walk out doors, that would improve this game a lot for me. This game did not seem to populate scores on the menu

iUFO Catcher: I thought this one would be a throwaway, but it was fun. Mindless, but fun. Good theme/graphics/music, you tilt to aim your claw and tap to drop. I thought there'd be some skill to grabbing, but you just have to hit a prize with the hook to grab it. There are some powerups, but they all seem to be bad? Very easy, kids should enjoy this one. I gave up on it after a while (the game gives you lots of time) and just held the claw against one edge and tapped the screen repeatedly while I worked on something else...

Operation iWolf: Kinda like the old Operation Wolf for the NES, the screen scrolls sideways and you shoot people. Shoot ammo and guns, shoot ducks to drop powerups/ammo/guns. Decent graphics and average gameplay.

2009 Road Master: This was the game that put me over the edge, it looked good when it came out. Plays horribly, car sounds like a vacuum cleaner. Only game I had (fairly low) expectations for, was dissapointed.

The demos are free on iTunes, I won't review those.

The description says two more full games are already in a sumbitted update, if I don't see that in a month, I might just ask Apple for a refund on this title. Right now I feel my dollar could have been better spent elsewhere. That would definitely change if all of the proposed full games via free updates do indeed come.

Good review drelbs! I also couldn't resist trying 11 games for a buck, considering some of them sold for $1 a piece. Yet as I tried each one, I kept hoping the next one would be better. I also experience a couple crashes when loading certain games.

Not terrible, but my one dollar lesson learned with this package is: quality>quantity.

Haha almost the SAME EXACTLY with me! I got it because of the promise that bowman defense would eventually be free, considering it costs $1, and I was gonna get it so yeah... Lets hope they keep their promise.

Learned the same lesson though. Now lets do the opposite and get Dark Nebula!

Same here. Though if they fulfill their promise of giving Ancient War for free then I'd be quite happy with my purchase. I enjoy Ancient War and iSniper, so it's 50c each.

If they don't give Ancient War the full version within a month, I'd ask for refund too.

i am pretty sure 11 games in 1, 8 of them full, 3 lite versions is only 8 games in 1, with three demos...

You are horrible at math, er wait no - I agree with you 106.5%

Though if they are not lying about the update, then the next version will be an honest 10 games in one.

tempted to pick this up only for ancient war and bowman defense...none of the other games really appeal to me
