This review originally appeared within iLounge’s iOS Gems series within the compilation article, iPhone Gems: Sports Games - Soccer, Golf, Air Hockey, Tennis + More. Additional details may be found in the original article.

The other two games are considerably less impressive. Air Hockey ($1) by Personae Studioes looks as if its table was drawn on a primitive paint program, and its mallets are so small as to be difficult to use. Nothing seems properly proportioned, but the physics engine is pretty realistic, allowing the puck to actually slow down rather than remaining at top speeds at all times. Despite a sound option, the game plays in silence, and it’s for one player only with three difficulty levels. By comparison with Acceleroto’s game, this hardly seems like a finished piece of software, and isn’t worth paying for. iLounge Rating: C.


Editors' Note: iLounge only reviews products in "final" form, but many companies now change their offerings - sometimes several times - after our reviews have been published. This iLounge article provides more information on this practice, known as revving.
