Some iPhone apps are fat little piggies

As part of my last day tidy-up, I was deleting stuff, and I noticed just how big some iPhone games were:

Game

Size (MB)

Free Play Time (m)

Size/Minute

Assassins Creed Lite

99

10

9.900

Hero Of Sparta Lite

42

25

1.680

Hungry Dragon

25.7

10

2.570

Undercroft Lite

11.4

120

0.095

Hungry Dragon each game only last ~10 minutes, but you can play as many games as you want and the graphics are the same for the whole time.

My point is, that not all games are equal, yes the the first two are very flashy, but for the amount of game play you get they are quite big. Hungry Dragon, really is a simple game, there’s not much to it, but it’s a fat little application, where as Undercroft Lite is a very polished and complete game, giving ~2 hours of game play. The full version is only 16.2 MB (42% bigger) and I’ve played for over 13 hours so far.

Not sure if I have some moral insight, just pointing at the fatties, and call a spade a spade.

Hello Mr Pilgrim, I’m your biggest fan (17 stone)
I hear you have migrated to the United States of America. I am sure your readers would love to hear more about your adventures in the States. Please do tell.

P.S. I don’t have an iPhone so have no idea what your talking about. I know plenty about Tivo though if you are ever interested.

Hello Biggest Fan (Alan),

I have Cable now, so I’m not interested in your stinky Tivo. But yes I should post some arrived in the US content.
