Sol Free Solitaire is a classy solitaire app that delivers three games (Klondike Deal 3, Demon, and Baker’s Game), easy-to-read graphics, and enough documentation to make for a fine introduction to the world’s loneliest card game.
Every game console needs a killer racing title, something that delivers envelope-pushing graphics and freewheeling fun. For the PlayStation, it’s Gran Turismo. For the Xbox, it’s Forza Motorsport.

Plus, it has some gameplay issues that, pardon the pun, drive you crazy.
If the Olympics has you dreaming of smashing records with split-second timing - only without all that unsightly sweating - those dreams can be achieved with your iPhone or iPod touch. Brain Challenge may look like it’s just a clone of Nintendo’s Brain Age or Big Brain Academy games (and, let’s face it, it is) but it’s still a good time in its own right.

Deliciously addictive Tangle consists of a jumble of lines that you must untangle by clicking the dots at the corners and dragging them around. Black lines are good to go, gray lines are still tangled.

Tangle features unlimited levels, an online leaderboard, and even Internet multiplayer, all excellent touches.
