The Best Thing About iPhone/iPod Gaming Is…

free
The best things in life may not be free…but it really helps

…free games–in this case, the solid Sword of Fargoal:

By far the most approachable roguelike, Sword of Fargoal is a classic dungeon crawler with randomly generated levels which provide nearly infinite replay value. Aside from being a fantastic game, Sword of Fargoal also serves as an excellent example of how retro ports should be done. The iPhone version preserves the look and feel of the original while adding new OpenGL effects and other modern graphical flare. If you’ve never played a roguelike before, Sword of Fargoal is a great introduction to the genre.

TouchArcade is, as usual, a little over-generous with their praise (seriously guys: if you just turned it down about 20%, your reviews would be a little more valuable cause it seems like every other game is ‘super mega awesome’ with the bulk of the remainder just plain ‘awesome’), but it is a decent roguelike, so scoop it up, and get your 30 minutes out of it…like most iPhone games, sigh.
