The iPhone and iPod Touch gaming update is Gamertell’s weekly look at the previous week’s iPhone and iPod Touch games released in the Apple App Store. We cover them all – good and not so good. The list is available every Monday, right as you are about to start that long work week.

Ever since Angry Birds I have noticed a disturbing trend of adjectives and animal names as app titles. Take Ninja Chicken 3: The Runner for example. OK, it’s probably just a coincidence. Anyway, this game will run you $0.99 and has you controlling two ninja chickens as they fight to retrieve their stolen treasure from the samurai pig. What? Sounds like a perfectly sound plot to me.

JAZZ: Trump’s journey takes you into the heart of New Orleans and Jazz as you play through the memories of Trump. Trump is a jazz musician trying to make his way in the world by forming, chasing Lady Poppy, and dealing with injustice. It’s an odd setting and story for a platforming game but I suppose that’s what makes it unique and worth the $2.99.

Alright, our last game this week is definitely apt for that Angry Birds comparison. Greedy Penguins has you getting fishes into specific penguins mouths. Poor fishes. But that’s the break for being delicious I guess, accept not every penguin likes the same type of fish. Use whatever you can find to make sure each greedy penguin is stuffed with their preferred meal. Work across three environments to unlock bonuses and solve each puzzle.
