Electronic Arts has released a bunch of new apps into the iPhone App Store, but there's only one which has really caught our attention and that's a version of Command & Conquer: Red Alert.

Using updated graphics and a dedicated, touchscreen interface, the iPhone version of C&C: Red Alert is currently singleplayer only and allows you to play either as the Soviets or the Allies across 12 levels and two Skirmish levels.

The roster of units is an amalgamation from the old and new games in the series, including classics like the Kirov airship and the new Paladin Tanks, among others.

EA isn't done with the game yet though and has promised to bring Wi-Fi and Bluetooth multiplayer in for a later update, as well as a new campaign called Empire of the Rising Sun that will introduce a third faction, new units and extra campaigns.

The full game is currently available for £6.99 from the AppStore and seems to be going down quite well right now, though we haven't tried it ourselves.

C&C is far from the only classic PC game to make it to the iPhone lately - id Software recently updated the existing version of Wolfenstein 3D Classic to include new levels, graphics and the option to run custom levels directly from Safari. The company also ported Doom to the iPhone too, though it's met with mixed reviews so far.
