10 iPhone games every gamer needs

Get your thumbs on a few of these

The iPhone has quickly gone from a gaming device geared mostly towards casual players to a gaming platform most hardcore gamers would place alongside the Nintendo DS and PlayStation Portable.

With game spanning every genre as well as titles from popular franchises such as FIFA, Final Fantasy and Call of Duty, there's more than a few games for us all.

We've trawled through the App store to create a short and handy guide to ten of the best iPhone games available today.

REAL RACING
A highly-polished and very playable street racing experience, and one of the best portable racing games we've played in a long time
Developer: Firemint
Price: £2.99
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (iOS 2.2 or later)

ELIMINATE PRO
Not console quality, but its online deathmatch is available anywhere, and is remarkably playable. And it's free, for goodness sake.
Developer: ngmoco
Price: Free
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (iOS 3.0 or later)

PLANTS VS ZOMBIES
A unique story with a sound strategy battle game at its foundation - and more absorbing than anything else you can buy with £1.79.
Developer: PopCap Games
Price: £1.79
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (iOS 3.0 or later)

CUT THE ROPE
From the makers of Angry Birds and, in our opinion, much better. A true test of skill and puzzle-solving, and perfect five-minute fodder.
Developer: Chillingo
Price: £0.59
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (iOS 3.0 or later)

ROLANDO 2: QUEST FOR THE GOLDEN ORCHID
Uses its tilt and touch functionality in
much cleverer ways than any other game, and has absolute bags of charm and humour to boot.
Developer: ngmoco
Price: £2.99
Compatibility: iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad (iOS 2.2.1 or later)
