The iPhone 4 has arrived! After a morning of waiting, pacing and coffee-drinking, we finally get to test some highly anticipated games that shine on the iPhone 4.  Apple’s newest device features a gyroscope for more movement control, as well as a new retina display for high-resolution graphics.

Here are some great games released or newly updated for the iPhone 4.

Retina Pleasure

FarmVille is making a big splash with its iPhone game, after initially becoming a global sensation on Facebook. On the iPhone 4, the $4.99 game from Zynga feels a little more interactive, with improved touch-screen control. The big selling point here is the high-resolution display, which actually does a good job of drawing you into the game.

Enigmo 2 also released a version for the iPhone 4, with its beautiful graphics made a little crisper.  The $2.99 game takes you through several puzzle levels, each with their own set of challenges for manipulating time and space to save water streams and laser beams in containers. There’s no gyroscope action on this game, but that’s a good thing.

The Tiger Woods PGA Tour game from EA has iPhone support, but little in the way of multi-axis support. The game’s graphics and play still pack a punch, looking pretty sleek on the iPhone 4. At $2.99 I’ll be fighting to keep this well-designed game away from my HTC-using boyfriend.

Flight Control from Firemint was already a great graphic game for the small screen, but improvements on the iPhone 4 make everything a little cooler. The crazy gameplay for the 99-cent app seem pretty slick on the new device.

Gyroscope & action

Real Racing is another Firemint game that received an iPhone 4 update today, with a bit of gyroscope thrown in for good measure. The $4.99 game may be one of the better ways to try out the iPhone 4’s multi-axis support. Already maxing out the phone’s accelerometer, the added range of motion makes for some pretty bumpy gameplay.

For a point-and-shoot game, Eliminate: GunRange may be more your style. Get dizzyingly familiar with the new axis controls as you focus in on your target before blowing them away. All from the shooter’s perspective, this 99-cent game has done well for its first dedicated iPhone release.

While Zen Bound doesn’t have a new update yet for the iPhone 4, it sure looks great on the new device.  You can imagine the level of wrist action involved in solving the complex, 3D puzzles with added gyroscope support for the $2.99 game. Equally as impressive are the beautiful graphics on the new display, making it a perfect fit for the iPhone 4.
