The iPhone has gone from mewling infant to triumphant, trampling toddler, raging its way through our Twitter channel, drowning out the tweeting mites of the pocket gaming world with its unrelenting, uproarious chirping.

Setting the tone for last week was the happy announcement that the App Store has turned the grand old age of one. That’s a self-assured and mature number of candles for a gaming platform. Just look at the N-Gage. Barely three years old and already senile.

To celebrate, publishers went into publicity overdrive, feeding us news of LucasArts adventure games on the platform, iPhone game competitions, new games, porn. Yep it was quite a bash. Read on for all of the sordid details that soberly, the participants would probably sooner forget.
