Why iPhone Gamer Blog exists:
iPhone Gamer Blog reviews iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad games in the most honest way we know how. By pointing out good points and bad with a specific slant towards a game’s value and replayability, we ensure our readers have all of the information they need before spending their hard earned money. We also focus on news and rumors within the mobile device world in feature articles that are published several times per week. With over 175,000 apps out there, filtering through and finding the diamonds in the rough has become quite a chore. Our mission is finding the best games and spreading the word. In every way we strive to be ethical, honest and forthright with our reviews, previews and news regardless if the publisher is large or small.
How we rate our games:
Our scoring is comprised of four elements, all of which are rated from 1 (being the lowest to 5 being the highest) stars.
As in overall value of the game compared to the game’s cost. This is factored at the normal price, not the games sale price. How many hours will you get out of this title? How much replay value does it have? We also incorporate the other 3 categories to create final score. These do not necessarily result in an average.

Controls are one of the most important aspects of the iPhone and iPod Touch. Are the controls easy? Do they utilize the devices unique control scheme (accelerometer,touching, etc) in a way that is well suited and interesting within the game?
