Meet the Real X-Men: First Class!

The iPhone is going retro with X-Men Arcade -- the best side scrolling X-Men arcade game ever created!

To tie-in with the release of X-Men: First Class in theaters, Konami decided to re-launch their 1992 beat-em-up classic for IOS and Android devices. Like the original game, X-Men Arcade supports multiplayer through Bluetooth, allowing you and three of your friends to do battle as Cyclops, Colossus, Wolverine, Storm, Nightcrawler or Dazzler. It features Open Feint (Leaderboard and Achievements), Facebook Connect to publish scores, and the inclusion of the famed Konami code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, B, A, Start).

iPhone Game Tiny Wings Dominates App Store

Angry Birds has met its match, and it's another bird game for the iPhone. Tiny Wings was launched one week ago with little fanfare and has managed to become the top paid app in the iTunes App Store. The overnight success of previously unknown developer Andreas Illiger is earning him $0.99 per download.

The app itself is small enough to download over a 3G connection and features graphics that change every single day. Gameplay only requires one finger and a desire to beat your previous high score. The object of the game is to fly for as long as possible in one day before night comes and you're forced to sleep.
