What a perfect marriage Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorneyiswith iPhone/iTouch. Not only does Capcom's classic fit the DS-style of presentation(top of the screen shows the story, below is where you interact with it)onto one screen butit features allfive episodes fromtheGBA inall their compellingbeauty.

For the uninitiated, Phoenix Wright is part courtroom action and part detective work as you combine cross-examining witnesses to combing crime scenes for evidence to presentbefore the judge and jury. Sounds boring, but it absolutely isn't. The range of colourful characters and tongue-in-cheek storylines keep proceedings entertaining throughout. Oh, and the occasional boob jiggle animation that the devs shamelessly popped in never fails to raise a, erm, smile.

Above: Wow, this judge is pretty single-minded in his approach to justice
