Once again I wish I owned an iPhone

Full disclosure: My husband and I will be two of the last people in the modern world to own a cellphone. Or, at least, that's how it sometimes feels.

We have our reasons for living cellphone-free, of course, but I won't bore you by listing them here.

Anyway, all that said, I want a cellphone. In particular, I want an iPhone. Not just so I can call (and be called by) family and friends whenever and wherever, but so I can buy and play games like Doodle Jump, Trism and Tumbledrop.

Oh, and Magnetic Shaving Derby.

This Nyarlu Labs-developed title, which began life as a DS homebrew release (here's a video of it), calls on players to pull (and sometimes push) a razor blade across a crudely realized face using an old-fashioned horseshoe magnet.

By the way, the game's delightfully effervescent soundtrack can be downloaded (free-of-charge) here.

What an absolutely insane game! Yikes! I think maybe I'll have to suggest this one to people I know who have iPhones.

So, just an update: I had a little nightmare about this game last night. All I remember is that it had something to do with an article I dreamed up about a guy who got eaten head first by a great white shark and learned to tell about it. For some reason, he was being shaved for operation in one part of the article, and it was just like this game.

LOL! That sounds like quite a dream, Justin. Was the shaving accompanied by a chiptune-based soundtrack, too? ;)
