Hero of Sparta II revisits the world of the early iPhone action hit, once more putting you in command of warrior Argos as you decimate scads of demonic foes. The hack-and-slash action offers several notable upgrades over the original, such as new weapons and environmental interactions, plus crisp visuals that shine on the iPhone 4 Retina display. The new multi-directional attack nub is an appreciated addition, making Hero of Sparta II a lengthy, improved, and more immersive sequel that inches closer to the home console games it emulates.
Now that the two largest carriers in the United States are both selling the iPhone, what is a smaller network to do? In T-Mobile’s case, they’re going on the offensive with a new commercial taking pot shots at their larger rivals’ slower networks.
As with most any beta iOS release, enterprising developers and other tinkerers have been poking around inside the software since its release on Wednesday, discovering potential new models of iPad and iPhone as well as new features yet to come.

Your goal in Solipskier is to guide the little skier through yellow gates by drawing the snow beneath his skis by touching and holding the screen, as well as changing his altitude by shifting your finger. Solipskier seems very simple and even sleepy at first, but by the time you’ve sped through several gates and tunnels, you’ll be moving so quickly that hazards like cliffs and barriers will pop up in the blink of an eye. It’s fast and frenetic fun, and does a simple idea right with stylish and smart execution.
If your Apple mobile device is rocking iOS 4.2 and you still haven't had a chance to show everyone how cool Airplay is, it's time to step up your game. Why?
