iPhone game of the day: Chaos Rings

The price may be high, but this is premium quality gaming, make no mistake. Once you've got past the extraordinarily flaky intro sequence, the game exudes that Square-Enix sheen. Story-wise, it's an interesting concept. Five couples are whisked away to a strange dimension and forced to do battle with each other, with the promise of eternal youth and life for the winners.

But first, you've got to find the eponymous Chaos Rings, which involves trawling dungeons for XP and doing battle with a shedload of 3D monsters. It's all engrossing stuff, and there are interesting grid-based puzzles thrown in to add variety. It is a luxury at this price, but if you bought an iPhone instead of a PSP, this is the highest quality RPG you can play on the go.

    Awesome, now I can have a slow rpg with terrible dialogue and kindergarden-level philosophy ON THE GO!

    I might get this, it looks like a "real" game instead of games I can play in chuck.

    Who cares!!! My boyfriend thinks the same with me. He- is eight years older than me, lol. We met online at an age gap dating site[_www. A G E R O M A N C E com_]---a nice and free place for Younger- Women and Older Men, or Older Women and Younger Men, to interact with each other. Maybe you wanna check out or- tell your friends

    I'd say Chaos RIngs is the Chrono Trigger of this decade !

    It's okay, if a little slow paced...
