Some card games have also been added, such as Solitaire and Video Poker. is a Apple enthusiast site with news, tutorials and a weekly video podcast. It is produced by CleverMedia, an Internet content company that has created more than 300 Web-based games since 1995.

Gary Rosenzweig, founder of CleverMedia and executive producer of MacMost, has been converting some of CleverMedia's games to work on the iPhone, and creating new ones specifically for the iPhone.

"Most of the game code is completely new, built for the iPhone. But we have been able to reuse some artwork from our other titles," said Rosenzweig. "The trick is to figure out which games will work best on the iPhone's touch screen."

While the iPhone does not allow third-party developers to install applications on the phone, MacMost has been able to make games that play using the Safari Web browser built into the phone.

Rosenzweig said of thousands of people per day are coming to to play the games. Almost all of the players are using an iPhone to play, even though the games can also be played in the Safari browser on Macintosh and Windows computers.

The games are free to play and can be found by going to and clicking on the "iPhone Games" link at the top of the page.
