For Immediate Release

London, UK– 29th July 2010– Steel Media is delighted to announce the launch of its latest digital publication, the Top 50 Classic iPhone Games Guide.

Available to view free online, the core of the magazine comprises 50 reviews of‘classic’ iPhone and iPod touch games spanning all genres, and compiled by Pocket Gamer’s team of portable gaming experts.

“We’re aware that the phenomenal rate at which games turn up on the App Store can mean that it’s not unusual for even the more dedicated gamer to miss out on the odd must-play title,” explained Joao Diniz Sanches, editor of the Top 50 Classic iPhone Games Guide.“This guide is therefore intended to highlight 50 games released prior to 2010 which we feel should be experienced by anyone in possession of an iPhone or iPod touch and a love of gaming.

“Equally, we expect that the recent arrival of the iPhone 4 has brought with it a number of newcomers to Apple’s devices and we therefore have also tried to cater for the complete beginner with a number of‘how to’ guides to get them started in the uniquely thrilling world of iPhone gaming.”

In addition to an introduction to gaming on iDevices (complete with breakdown of the App Store), newcomers will find guidance on how to download their games and even rearrange their home screen, as well as tips such as how to maximise their handset’s battery life.

Seasoned players, meanwhile, can dive straight into the 50 reviews. Should they find they’ve already played them all, a further list highlights 40 games that reflect the Pocket Gamer team’s favourite titles of 2010 to date.

The Top 50 Classic iPhone Games Guide is available now and can be found here: http://www.steelmedia.co.uk/digitalmags/iphoneclassics1
