If you're anything like us ("us" being the very person who is writing this post, and not some certain tech editors who got a shiny giant new awesome GIMME THAT IPAD), then all the iPad hype has passed you by and you're
broke and bitter "waiting for them to work out the bugs." No worries, fam—while you're waiting, there's still great games coming out for the pocket-sized gaming wonder that is your iPod/iPhone. This week, you're sellin', buyin', kickin', and grindin'. Which is probably the best line Waka Flocka ever wrote...
DARK VOID ZERO
GENRE: Sidescrolling Action-Platformer
COMPLEX SAYS: Mmmmm, 8-bitty goodness. If only the next-gen remake-that-wasn't-actually-a-remake-but-was-instead-a-mediocre-game-that Capcom-then-turned-into-a-much-better-DSi-game had turned out as playable. Jet packs ahoy!

FOOTBALL MANAGER HANDHELD 2010
GENRE: Sports Simulation
COMPLEX SAYS: Footy nerds have been going apeshit over this game for almost 20 years, and now it's finally available on the go. There's no MLS, but c'mon—when you're used to managing Premier or Bundesliga teams, do you really want to fuck with the LA Galaxy lineup?
BUY IT NOW FOR $9.99!
COMPLEX SAYS: We're firm believers that a puzzle game should be a) easy to grasp, b) addictive even when fiendishly difficult, and c) cheap. This one has the trifecta. Now get out there and sync your balls. Then sink your balls. Then wash your balls. Seriously. It's like someone's making mushroom soup in here.

TONY HAWK PRO SKATER 2
COMPLEX SAYS: Skating games don't need weird peripherals, and they don't need thumbsticks. We're not trying to do the damn tricks with our hands! Just give us an "ollie" button and we're straight. Griiiiiiiind!
BUY IT NOW FOR $9.99!
COMPLEX SAYS: Genre be damned, the mix of trading, combat, and scope (this thing has more han 100 quests) has us wishing Xzibit was here to say YO DOG I HEARD YOU LIKED ROCKIN' AND DOCKIN' SO I SLIPPED IN SOME DOKKEN SO YOU COULD ROCK SOME DOKKEN WHILE YOU DOCKIN'. Ah, white-people memes; who truly understands them?
