Replay Value: Saturday, February 6

It’s nice to have a break. This week wasn’t quite as busy in the world of the iPhone as the last few were, but that doesn’t mean it was boring. The possible confirmation of retro-styled Sonic 4 coming to the iPhone made many gamers happy, and some great games that earned our top score hit the App Store, too. Because you might have been bogged down at work or in a coma for the past week, we’ve assembled this week’s stories into a neatly-wrapped package after the jump.
