Quick App: Black Out for the iPhone

Black Out by 1026 Development is an iPhone homage to the classic Tiger handheld puzzle game, where your goal is to turn all the lights off, even as every light to touch switches all the lights around it. Why Black Out and why for the iPhone? Said developer Jeremy Curcio:

I loved the handheld game and was cleaning out my attic when I saw it sitting there. I then realized how smoothly it would port to the iPhone platform. That day I started writing this app. I'm really proud of how it turned out, and I think many others will enjoy it as well.

Black Out will be in the iTunes Store soon(ish?) for $0.99. Check out the video above and let us know if you'll be picking it up...

Much as I like this site, the dearth of news about the phone itself seems to be forcing the site to become a review site for every app coming down the pike.
I'm not sure that is useful.

Ehh... thanks tho rene...& why does a star show up when I write ☆twitter? I scared

Rene Ritchie says:

LOL! We hardly write much about apps considering there are 15,000+ now. And for every reader who wants less, there's one that wants more. Can't win, can we?
However, when developers take the time to write us directly and share some personal thoughts on their apps, we'll try to support them as much as we can.
@STUstone08: Not sure, will look into it. Test: twitter
