Specially for those puzzle games....

If you ever get stuck on Toki Tori or Archibald's Adventure the game makers themselves have video walkthroughs, but what about all the other games?

Would it be so hard for someone to create a YouTube channel for iPhone walkthroughs? There's one for flash games, so why wouldn't there be for iPhone games?

I'm pretty sure the first one to do it a decent job would get a ton of views!

For a video game on a major console, maybe, but for an iPhone games that sports 200+ levels, not worth it at all. However, really popular games like Blocked have hundreds of tutorials by hundreds of users, so if it's popular, you might have better luck.

Yes, obviously if it's some obscure and unpopular game it wouldn't be worth the time, but I'm sure some would love to know how wot find the secret room in Spider, or how to beat Time Loop, Go! Go! Rescue Squad!, the Resident Evil games, Boulder Dash Rocks... and so many more?

I utilized the Toki Tori and Archibald's Adventures walkthroughs quite a bit. Some of those levels were hard! I like game developers who post those videos. It feels like cheating, but sometimes I'd rather cheat than be frustrated.

Me? If I knew how to do it I would have already!

Also, I'm still stuck in some of those game... Which I why I think it would be awesome if someone did a video walktrhough of them!

I'm not sure there is a FRAPS for the iPhone, I think that when we see an iPhone game footage that's "full screen" it's simply taken from the computer it's being programed on?
