Our friends over at Touch Arcade have put together their list of the best iPhone games of 2009
, and if you happened to unwrap an iPod touch or an iPhone yesterday, that's as good a place as any to start hunting for your favorite games. Spider: Secret of Bryce Manor
[$2.99, iTunes link
] topped their list, and we agree that it's an excellent showcase for original iPhone software (there's also a promo version
if you want to try the gameplay for free).
Other than that, there's a few of our favorites missing from the list (no Ramp Champ
? No Galcon Labs
?), but there are plenty of terrific games to download and play on into 2010. It's been a fantastic year for iPhone gaming -- if you haven't yet jumped in and checked out some of the best the platform has to offer, what are you waiting for? Get downloading!
