Based on a 2002 arcade machine, Namco’s Star Trigon has been released for Click Wheel iPods as the latest $5 iPod game. You control a character who hops from dot-shaped planet to planet with button presses, forming lines and eventually triangular Trigon shapes with each movement. When the lines encapsulate one of the character’s Uchujin friends, who are free-floating in space between the planets, you rescue them. Power ups extend the life of the lines you form, increase your speed, and enable you to keep playing longer; there are 79 different stages spread across four difficulty levels. Star Trigon was originally developed by the same team responsible for the popular Mr. Driller puzzle titles.
