Astraware is a well-known mobile game development company that has had Palm and Windows Mobile games for years. They decided to also expand to the iPhone/iPod touch and are launching games like crazy. I had the chance to play with five of their new games and posted a video and my thoughts on them to go along with this screenshot image gallery. As you can see they have excellent graphics in their games.
