[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 in chief Danny Cowan and authors Louise Yang and Jonathan Glover.] This week, FingerGaming reviews Minigore, and highlights recent releases like NFL 2010, Pac-Man Remix and NetHack. Here are the top stories from the last seven days: - Review: Minigore "Despite the monotony of playing the same map over and over again, there's no denying that Minigore is fun, addictive, and great to look at." - NFL-Licensed Football Title NFL 2010 Debuts in App Store "NFL 2010 boasts many of the major features found in console football titles, including 3D graphics and play-by-play commentary." - Top Free Game App Downloads for the Week "Digital Chocolate's quiz game 20Q Mind Reader Free debuts as today's top download, as the minigame compilation All 51 Games Free comes in at second place." - Namco Releases Pac-Man Remix, Announces Pac-Man Championship Edition "Pac-Man Remix takes Pac-Man's classic pellet-munching, maze-running gameplay and adds new levels, power-ups, and boss battles." - Taito Announces Bubble-Busting Puzzler Bust-A-Move for iPhone "Little has been revealed about the project so far, but players can expect to see Bubble Bobble protagonists Bub and Bob helming the bubble-popping action when the game is released." - Top-Selling Paid Game Apps for the Week "The Price is Right continues its run as the App Store's top seller for the second week in a row. PopCap's Bookworm also places high in today's results after recently dropping in price to 99 cents." - PBS Launches iPhone Brand with Curious George Coloring Book "The Public Broadcasting Service has entered iPhone territory with today's App Store release of the interactive digital painting title Curious George Coloring Book." - Roguelike Classic NetHack Premieres in App Store "Expanding on the gameplay concepts introduced in the PC role-playing classic Rogue, NetHack introduced many elements that are now common in the dungeon hack genre, and remains a worthy and relevant play."
