New iPhone Games: Space Dock, Silent Swords

Pixel Mine's traffic control game Space Dock and Oniric Games' stealth action title Silent Swords are available now at the App Store for US$0.99 and $2.99, respectively. iPhone OS 2.2 and 2.2.1 are required, respectively.

In Space Dock, players guide all manner of starcraft safely at a space station while belligerent aliens, asteroids, and other obstacles threaten to interfere with their job. They must also rescue the pilots of damaged ships; if an incoming spaceship hits one of them, the game ends. Players can upgrade the station's defenses along the way. Twitter and Facebook integration for posting high scores is included.

Silent Swords challenges players to guide a ninja out of the military base holding him captive. They must sneak through the shadows, waiting for the right moment to strike, as they make their way through 25 levels. Oniric Games promises future updates with new level packs, which will include player-created levels that can be submitted through the Silent Swords web site.
