[Every week, Gamasutra sums up sister iPhone site FingerGaming's top news and reviews for Apple's nascent -- and increasingly exciting -- portable games platform, as written by editor Matt Burris and guest editor Danny Cowan.] This week's notable items in the iPhone gaming space, as covered by FingerGaming, include the debut of Hudson's Crayon Physics Deluxe, the announcement of the IGF entrant Edge's impending release, and a word from indie developer Luc Bernard on future iPhone possibilities. Here are the top stories: New App Store Release: Crayon Physics Deluxe "Hudson has released the iPhone version of Crayon Physics Deluxe. Winner of the Grand Prize Award at 2008’s Independent Games Festival, Crayon Physics challenges players to create freehand drawings in order to solve physics-based puzzles." Top Free App Downloads for January 2nd "The winter-themed Crazy Penguin Catapult Lite has remained a consistently popular download throughout the holiday season, but it remains to be seen whether the title will keep its top ranking for much longer, now that the new year is upon us." IGF Entrant Edge Coming to App Store Next Week "Edge is entered in the inaugural Independent Game Festival Mobile competition, and is nominated for the Excellence in Gameplay award at the International Mobile Gaming Awards." Review: Squish Squash "Squish Squash is a game that pits you, a hapless cookie-lover, against an army of marauding vermin. Alternately, you play the role of a sadistic bug-killer, luring hundreds of unassuming insects to their squishy end." Cricket Game Premieres in App Store "The iPhone has yet to host a proper simulation of the sport of cricket, until now. Enter Cricket Game, a rather nice-looking 3D title that gives all the willows, googlies, and yorkers fans would expect (?) from the sport." Luc Bernard Announces iPhone Debut "Independent game developer Luc Bernard, designer of the PC platformer Eternity's Child, has announced the formation of a new company focused on iPhone and WiiWare software development."
