[prMac.com] Denver, CO - iPhone and iPod touch users can get a collection of 12 games in a single app. The Free Games 2 app has small casual games that can be played even when the user is not connected to a network. Free Games 2 is a sequel to the original Free Games app, which featured games that could be played online. The games have been redesigned, enhanced with new features and the online requirement is gone.
"The original game is very successful," said developer Gary Rosenzweig. "But it was clear that the main way it could be improved would be to make the games playable off-line. I also wanted to improve the games."
Some of the games, such as Collapsing Blocks and Match Three are variations on popular casual games. Others, like Maze Game and Word Search bring paper-and-pencil games to the iPhone.
The main screen of the app shows all 12 games and allows the player to choose one to play. With iOS 4 multitasking, the player can even switch to another app and then return to complete a game later.
There are also two picture puzzle games, Jigsaw Puzzle and Sliding Puzzle. In either game, the player must assemble an image. The game includes a library of more than 700 images for these puzzles.
There are also interpretations of classic computer games like Minesweeper and Missile Command. The player can challenge their iPhone in games like Deduction and Reversi.
"There is a little something for everyone in the collection," said Rosenzweig. "Adults can enjoy all of the games, but they can also be fun for children."
The most complex game is a full-featured version of Sudoku with three difficulty levels and unlimited game boards.
