Bobble Sufer Free is an iPhone app from Lemur Software that will help you get your wave fix when you can’t make it out to the ocean. It’s built on the tilt sensitivity of the iPhone, so tilting the phone left will turn the little surfer dude left and tilting the phone right will turn the dude right. The real trick is starting with the phone flat as tilting the phone “up” will stall the surfer and get you caught on the lip of the wave. (This is one of the downfalls of the game. I can’t play it in bed while lying on my back.) Also the game has a pumpin’ surf track to help keep you stoked as you work to build up speed to launch crazed aerials. This game has a similar feel to the old T&C surf game for the original Nintendo…if you remember that one.
The full version promised barrels, more breaks and points, but it not yet available in the US iTunes store. I’ve written to the creators of the app and they have indicated that the full version of Bobble Surf should be available in the US iTunes store very soon. It should be well worth 99¢.
