With features of a computing device, users can do a lot of things on this mobile. Loaded with numerous web applications and multimedia features, iPhone is really a smart phone. And one of the best features of this phone is innovative and creative games. Hundred of individual game developers and agencies are engaged in iPhone 3Gs games development just to make sure that iPhone users are never left in wanting for entertainment.
Apple on its part also makes sure that it taps the potential of the best game developers in the world. As such, it has a policy in place of supporting third party developers. To potential and encouraging game developers, Apple issues a software development kit (SDK) which contains guidelines and support for these developers. Using the SDK, individual freelancers as well as game development companies developed games for iPhones. If the games received green signals from Apple, these games find their way on Apple store. Some of the games are available for free download while others are charged.

Game development is also a costly activity and the current trend is to outsource the development process to an offshore game development company.
