Maverick Software games

Maverick Software on Thursday announced four new native iPhone applications - Comet Cowboy, Yulan Mahjong Solitaire, Snowglobe, and Blip Solitaire - all of which will be available at the launch of the App Store later this month. Comet Cowboy allows players to explore space in order to mine comets with their virtual lasso. The game boasts sharp graphics, multiple levels, and an automatic quick-save feature for when a call is received or if the user switches apps. Comet Cowboy will sell for $5.

Yulan Mahjong Solitaire ($5) uses the multi-touch screen's various functions like pinch-and-squeeze so players can zoom in and out from any of eight tile layouts, matching pairs as they go.

Maverick's Snowglobe ($1) app allows users to put a virtual snowglobe on the screen that uses the iPhone's accelerometers to determine which side of the device is down, letting the flakes fall into the proper direction. Users can put custom photos into the globe, or a pre-selected image.

Lastly, Blip Solitaire pits players against themselves in a circular-style solo game of Pong. Blip Solitaire is free from the App Store.
