Earthworm Jim is Gameloft’s second crack of the Palm Pre platform game whip. Its first attempt, Castle of Magic, failed to live up to its full potential, with pretty graphics and good ideas let down by bad implementation and controls.

A webOS gem, this free game from Under Clouds Games plays a lot like the classic mobile game, Snake, but with the setting in space. You take control of a little rocket ship, out to make a fortune through mining asteroids while avoiding the attention of rival miner craft. The action is viewed from a top […]
