SuperCross For Your iPhone

This week, Apple surpassed an amazing milestone at the iTunes app store: one billion downloads. Apple had been running a contest called the Billion App Countdown promotion with prizes including a chance to win a $10,000 iTunes Gift Card, a MacBook Pro, an iPod Touch, and more. Though the contest ended once they reached their mark (winners will be announced soon), it’s still an amazing feat and clearly implies the apps are going to keep on coming.

It’s no secret that the most popular apps at the iTunes Store, paid or free, are largely from the games category, so this week I’m going to talk about two new games on my iPhone you should check out.

Even without a career mode, the graphics and gameplay are excellent

SuperCross lets you jump on a motocross bike and race in full 3D on several unlockable tracks. Choose from a number of color schemes for your bike and your racer and also choose the displacement of your engine (two-stroke and four-stroke machines are available). Use your iPhone or iPod Touch’s accelerometer to turn and choose the best lines over jumps, berms, and whoops. You can choose from several different control schemes if you don’t like using the accelerometer for turning (control pad arrows are added onscreen) and each work very well.
