For those of you not familiar with WoW, it is the largest massively multiplayer online role-playing game in the world with over 12 million subscriptions each month. There is a large market system built up around the in-game economy (gold) with brokers, farmers (gold producers), and customers who pay real money for in-game currency.
This free game for the iPhone is very simple, but a lot of fun. Graphics and game-play are a throwback to the tons of quarters you blew in an arcade long ago (and Geometry Wars). It is the perfect distraction when you have 10 minutes to kill. Did I mention free? Get this game already!
