iPhone Game of the Week

The baseball part of the game is simple but still involved. You can control your hitters, pitchers and base runners depending on the game mode you've selected. Swinging the bat is as simple as tapping a button, but actually hitting the ball is another story. Especially when you are up against tougher anime pitchers who throw fireballs and other various crazy pitches. Pitching requires various swipe motions to throw curveballs and sliders. In "My Team" mode you can play all the innings and control both the hitting a pitching. In "My Batter" or "My Pitcher" you only control the player you're building.

Order Up!! To Go is a Fun and Addictive Free iPhone Game

Order Up!! To Go is an addictive management game which allows you to build your own restaurant empire. Like most cooking games you must plan your menu, manage your money and cook your customer's favorite dishes in a timely manner. Before each round you must stock your kitchen with the right amount of food and spices to serve all your customers for that day. The tricky part is you don't know what your customers will order, or how they will want their food prepared. The idea is not to overstock your restaurant while having enough food on hand to feed everyone. Failing to do so will result in wasted or low profits which you will need for upgrades and to hire help in the future.

Free iPhone Games

Order Up isn't all planning menus and buying spices, you must use various swiping motions to chop, stir and cut ingredients to prepare various dishes for your customers. The controls are slightly more challenging than other click and point management games, but thankfully they don't muck up the experience.
