    Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies

    Picture 11 Cost: $9.99

    Yeah, Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies is kind of expensive for an iPod Touch game (and the title has more colons than most), but that still doesn't mean it isn't totally awesome. Two words: zombie nazis. You thought they were bad when they were alive, just wait until they are undead (but not vampire undead, although that might be cool too). You and up to 4 friends canblow away these zombies and protect your bunker in the classic Call of Duty map "Nacht der Untoten." You can even change the controls to suit your playing style. What are you waiting for? Grab a gun and start killing nazi zombies!

    Download Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies.

    Blades of Fury

    Picture 12 Cost: $0.99

    No, this is not based on the movie, Blades of Fury (although that would be cool), this is actually a 3D arcade style fighting game for the iPod Touch. With 10 characters to choose from you can play though 4 modes alone: story, survival, practice and arcade, or you can play with your friends via a Wi-Fi connection. If you like Soul Caliber, Blades of Fury is for you.

It is, dare I say, groovy?
