Pocket God (CNET 100: iPhone Apps)
If you've ever wanted to rule your own empire, or you just really had a bad day, Pocket God lets you play god with a race of animated characters called "Pygmies."
The little guys are at your every whim. Tip the phone and they'll slide off the island, subject them to a variety of scary predators, like sharks and dinosaurs. And if you're feeling particularly vengeful, you can smite someone with a lightning bolt. It may sound silly--and in a way, it is--but Pocket God also includes simple games that have a point. For example, in one game, you'll have to run a Pygmy through a lava-filled cavern.
