Parachute Panic Lite
I must admit sometimes I enjoy a simple and somewhat mindless game that gives me a quick break from reality. Parachute Panic Lite is such a game. It is a free iPhone application available at the iTunes store.
The basic strategy of this fun game is to land a bunch of parachutists onto passing boats. An airplane flies by and drops one or more people who mustn't be very smart. Not the sharpest knives in the drawer. A few sandwiches short of a picnic... I think you get the idea. Not sure why someone would jump from a perfectly good airplane, but in this game they do. Your job is to open their parachute (some open automatically, some don't) and land them on a boat. With a swipe of your finger you can create wind bursts to move the free-fallers as need to make the landing.
There are a few dangers such as helicopters with big blades (ouch), UFO's, sharks and thunder clouds. The graphics are fairly simple but easy to see and the sounds effects are good!
If you enjoy this free Lite version, for just 99 cents you can get the full version. Just don't forget to open the parachute.
