I found a new game today in the installer.
It’s called TuxPuck and it’s a 3d hockey game.

The game is actually really old, but has recently been ported to the iPhone and iPod.

The goal of the game is to score as much points with your puck agains the computer.
It made me instantly think about the other hockey game I’ve already reviewed(see Airhockey).
But this version has much nicer graphics.

However, every port has it’s little issues, and so does this one, the gameplay is kinda difficult, and this is mostly due to the bad controls you have over your puck.
Another thing i noticed is, the screen doesn’t seem to be correctly modified for the iPhone, in the startup it’s not centered, and when your are playing, your own goal is difficult to see.

I haven’t had time to write a full review, but i’ll post some easy screens.

This little game is available in the Installer.app through the ipodtouchfans packaging source, see our sources page.

    This game was disappointing for me. The fact that your finger covers up your paddle, which means you can’t see much of anything…

    Hi Dan
    I totally agree, if you want to play the game, you need to move your puck by tapping on top of the screen. That way it works a little, but i removed it after trying for 5 minutes
