Namco recently mentioned that they like the Android platform and are confident in the future commercial success of it. To reinforce this they are willing to throw brands names and resources at Android and could possibly be the first major developer to fully embrace Android as a gaming platform.
Alright before everyone goes WTF!? because the title says iPhone and not Android let me explain.

In the tradition of office basketball where we make a basketball out of crumpled up paper and our baskets being garbage cans comes Toss It by Boolba Labs.

Well all the RPG fanatics out there can have one more thing to rejoice about because Gamevil is planning to release it's RPG hit game Zenonia to Android devices in March. If you think Gamevil sounds familiar, it is. That's because they developed the widely popular games Baseball Superstars 2008 & 2009 as well as developing other popular games across other platforms such as the iPhone and WM.
In the spirit of line drawing games where you control an items path with the line you draw such as in Flight Director comes another game similar to it called Flight Frenzy by Big Fun Games. Like Flight Director, you control the fate of airships (and their passengers) by plotting a course for it to land safely while trying not to crash into the other airships you're controlling.
Even while GDC is going on I can still manage to download and try out new games. One that just got onto the market is called Replica Island by Team Replica which is an open source 2D scrolling shooter game.
