The Game Trail iPhone game video preview app goes live
| The Game Trail

Last week, I got my hands on Fabrication Games's new video preview app The Game Trail, which aggregates YouTube videos so that you can see what iPhone games look like in action.

Well, the app's now gone live, so you can check it out for yourself.

According to the press release, there are more than 24,000 games on the App Store - 16 per cent of the 150,000 apps currently available. The Game Trail aims to help you navigate this teeming forest of content by giving you a flavour of the games you're looking to buy.

Apparently, the app uses an algorithm to rank games according to review scores from several independent sources. It then adds to this a selection of gameplay trailers so that you have the as much buying advice as you could conceivably need.

The videos are separated into sections for ease of navigation, and from what I've seen it's all very usable. It's also free, so click the App Store link below to try it out.
