Games that ignore the iphone`s silent mode.

Games that ignore the iphone`s silent mode...... What's up with that? Drives me mental. And if you do make a games that ignores the silent mode, AT LEAST have an option in the iphone's setting menu allowing you to turn the sound completely off.

P.S. This rant is a result of playing scrabble, and discovering that it ignores silent mode, and that the intro music can't even be turned off...unless you manually turn the volume down at start up.

Good because I have not played that game in a while and once they fix that I might play it again it is a hassle to turn the volume all that way down.

I'm looking at you Puzzle Quest...

Also games which don't save your current progress if you're interrupted are annoying too... Second strike for Puzzle Quest.

I downloaded WordsWorth this weekend, and it was the first I'd ran into in quite a while that ignores the silent switch. I haven't even played it yet, I was so pissed.

My games: ActionChess, Oppo-Citrus & Catchup
