    Default Super Monkey Ball
    Cost: $9.99
    Developer: SEGA

    I think this title needs no introduction. Showcased in WWDC and that other convention, it's one of the big titles to come to the iPhone and use its Accelerometer as control.

    The goal is simple, get the monkey in a ball to the end of the stage while grabbing as many bananas as you can. That said, you don't control the monkey, you control the stage the monkey is on. Using the iPhone, you can tilt it any direction you'd like to tilt the stage and off the monkey goes. Try not to fall!

    Pros: incredible graphics for the iPhone, really makes me wonder what else they can throw at us. Over 100 stages, different difficulties, practice mode, and rankings.

    Cons: the controls are... odd. It's not like you'd expect them to be and the constant camera changes make moving the monkey to the end a real challenge. I'm going to give it the benefit of the doubt and say I'm not used to the controls yet but believe me when I tell you, this game is hard.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    I agree, but after playing for about 1 hour, and only being on level 7 on world I, I got it down, and the game has become much easier!

    Don't let the graphics fool you, people! This game is sadistically hard!

    (just finished the first world, but still need perfect runs to unlock the next)

    Its hard but i am getting noticeably better at the game.

    It has a learning curve but it is super fun when you get into to it. I like the difficulty level a lot.

    After a day of playing and finally "getting" the controls (just tilting doesn't even scratch the surface of how sensible the game is), I'm getting a lot better than this. I already got all bananas in 7/10 of the Easy levels and 5/10 in the Hard levels of Monkey Island.

    PS: do NOT try to play this in a moving vehicle (bus), it'll just make you want to hurt yourself.

    I wish there was a setting to change the accelerometer's sensitivity.

    Yes you need 2.0 for any official app.

    I don't know about this gam. the puzzles are fun, but it's just not Monkey ball without the minigames, like the flying one.
