(N.B. The monthly games chart is based on titles released and reviewed in the last month. The apps chart is based on titles released and reviewed over the last three months. Hence, this is not a cumulative chart and earlier released titles may have higher scores.)
21 years after brutally slamming onto the Atari, Speedball 2 has evolved into a touchscreen-friendly, Bluetooth-multiplayer ratings winner. Tower Studios's futuristic baller managed to barge 2011's first breakout hit Tiny Wings into runner-up spot in February, and shoulder bump EA's NBA Jam into third. Gameloft's experiment with the freemium business model, meanwhile, paid dividends, as Starfront: Collision battled in real-time to secure a high ranking place
on the Quality Index chart.
The rise and rise of Twitter has spawned a multitude of iPhone apps that plug into the microblogging service: the current critical darling is Upload to Twitpic, which is three parts instruction, one part moniker. And on the subject of photographs, not one, but three image-manipulating / correcting / piping tools flashed into view on Qi this month: Facemakr, Camera+, and Photo Transfer App helping those with a certain creative flair indulge their passion wherever and whenever.
We'll continue to provide an updated listing each and every month, together with a round-up of the year. For all the up-to-date information on which games, apps, and publishers are reviewing best, head on over to the Quality Index now.
