Nothing quite says the holidays like killing pygmies and blasting baddies with noseballs in Pocket God and Doodle Jump; possibly the two best games for the iPhone ever created. They are to the iPhone what Super Mario Brothers was to the NES.
Meet Doodle Jump, the iPhone version of crack - this game is so addictive it should be illegal!
In Doodle Jump, you guide The Doodler - using some of the most subtle and accurate tilt controls in existence - on a springy journey up, up, up a sheet of graph paper, picking up jet packs, avoiding black holes, and blasting baddies with noseballs along the way.
Laugh with delight as you blow past other players' actual score markers scribbled in the margins. Try changing your name to "snow" to unlock a truly spectacular new Christmas mode, all together with the falling snow.
Meet Pocket God. Beam in pride as you burn, skewer, and bury these lovable characters alive.
Pocket God started out as a simple sandbox game where you humorously play the role of a God to a band of Pygmies. Over the next 11 months and 29 updates later, this game has grown into a juggernaut.
Currently, there are over 50 sacrifices spread across 5 unique locations, as well as 10 mini-games to keep you busy. The developers make a huge effort to listen to their community and regularly implement features that people request.
