It's been an exciting afternoon, to say the least. Apple opened its iPhone App Store for business early, this lunchtime, so we've spent the hours since highlighting some of the coolest launch games.

With that in mind, here's the 25 iPhone games that have leapt out at us from the App Store today. It seems there'll be more launching tomorrow (including Tetris), but for now, these are the 25 coolest games from Day One.

TOP 25 IPHONE LAUNCH GAMES

1. Super Monkey Ball. Just buy it (full details)

2. Texas Hold'em. Not just any poker game - this is made by Apple and has Wi-Fi multiplayer (full details)

3. Cro-Mag Rally. Ace-looking Stone Age karting game (full details)

4. Brain Challenge. iPhone's first brain trainer, complete with a motion-sensing mini-game exclusive (full details)

5. Bomberman Touch. It's Bomberman, Jim, but not as we know it. Because we're using the touchscreen (full details)

6. Enigmo. This physics-based puzzled could be a bit special (full details)

7. Critter Crunch. One of our favourite mobile puzzlers gets an iPhone makeover (full details)

9. Disney's All Star Cards. Mickey, Donald and chums take you on in cartoon cards (full details)

11. Numba. Intriguing-looking number puzzler from I-play (full details)

12. Space Monkey. Spinning simian in a spacesuit (full details)

14. Columns Deluxe. Retro puzzle action from Sega, comprising Columns and Puyo Pop (full details)

15. South Park Imaginationland. Bouncy Butters action (full details)

I think it depends on your demands on games generally. There are many great games, but I think there are too many copies of existing games, only few innovative ones. My fav is now Slogorado trivia.

Yeah i agree but there are some great games such as the poker by the reel deal, which they do not list which is dumb because it is better by far!
