The quest for more great open source apps continues, and I updated the Open Source iPhone Apps List with 4 new additions.  These additions are all games, and include a tactical fantasy RPG game, a massively multiplayer arcade game, and a 3D racing game.  Most of these games had appeared on other platforms previously, and are of extremely high quality.

1. The first game is Tux Rider, which is a port of the excellent Tux Racer 3d ski racing/snowboarding game game that has been on several platforms.  This game is absolutely gorgeous, and I look forward to taking a look at the source.

Here’s the trailer:

You can find the homepage here with source code, and you can find it in the app store here.

2. The second game is Battle for Wesnoth, which is a fantasy based tactical turn-based RPG that has also been on several platforms.  This game has really grown in popularity over time, and is really cool on the iPhone.

Here’s a gameplay video:

The homepage can be found here and the home for the iPhone source code is here.

3. The third game is XPilot, this is a simple multiplayer arcade shooter that has been around since the early days of the internet on many platforms.  I hadn’t heard of this game previously, but it looks like the devs have done a great job.

Here’s the trailer:

You can find the homepage here from which the source code can also be downloaded.

The fourth game is Puff Puff, which is an underwater arcade game using Cocos2D that I mentioned in a previous article here:
