Oh, the Huge Manatee! (CNET 100: iPhone Apps)
What can I say? I'm a sucker for marine life. Naturally, I couldn't resist Oh, the Huge Manatee! Its gameplay and graphics are far from complex, but what the game lacks in complexity, it makes up in humorous sound effects.
The goal is to avoid the bouncing, bombing, and piercing marine life by tilting the iPhone back and forth. Collecting stars (and time passed without death) earns you points, and some simple weaponry is available in the form of machine guns and grenades. But be careful: don't get SWORDFISHERATED!!
