iBaseball is out


I think it is time for apple to design their own "wii-like" rubber cover for the iphone.

Woo hoo! I may, just may collect all of the i(name of sport) games... if they stay free, that is...

BTW, my case for my Touch is like a Wiimote case. Its by a company named Speck, and it is black! Woot for Wii-like sport games!

Looks like SGN is "porting" WiiSports-sic games to iPhone/iTouch -- one at a time.

Downloading. Love the iBowling, and can't wait to see the next instalment (iTennis anyone?).

iBowling is ok, and so is iGolf. Both have a ton of room for improvement. Personally, I like developers to perfect one game before moving on to the next one. Hopefully they will continue to perfect the other titles while creating these new games.

Have to agree with Nickels. iBowl is fun for 5 minutes tops. There's just not much too it and there could be. I can't even tell if it is possible to spin the ball by a wrist twist. Maybe it does, but if so I can't tell. Perhaps it isn't possible to get that kind of input detail from the accelerometer. If not then there is little point in continuing with the effort, but if it can be done on the Wii, why not here?

iBaseball crashes every time I launch it, even after restarting my iPhone. So, for me, there's not so much fun left .

This is fun for like two minutes. You can only throw two diff pitches and have to strike out the opponent before you can bat. So, after 27 hits later, i finally got to bat and i wasn't all that impressed. Maybe if they added a couple more diff pitches and let you choose whether you want to bat or pitch, than this game would be a lot funner...
