Facebook? Now that I think about it I only ever heard of about 3 of those you listed so I probably shouldn't have commented at all.

I shit you not, it's there, I bought it, then my iPod Touch broke.

#4 Posted by Rasmoss (510 posts) -

Tiny Wings, Groove Coaster, Puzzle Agent (if you haven't played it elsewhere). But those you have will last you for a while.

Trade it in for a Galaxy S3. But seriously Jetpack Joyride is all you need, forever.

#10 Posted by heavymetalwaffle (115 posts) -

Super Crate Box just came out a day or two ago, it's pretty fun in small chunks.

I happened to get it for free because it was on sale the first day it released, so I'm not sure how much it costs.

Or Monster Dash. Basically Jetpack Joyride - jetpack + monsters. I think I may actually prefer it. Same devs (Halfbrick).

Well I have Phoenix Wright Ace Attorney, War of Eustrath, Ticket to Ride, McPixel and Ghost Trick. War of Eustrath is kind've a Fire Emblem esque strategy RPG that's alright... Although the story and dialogue... Well, how bout I just show you some:

Bah... Didn't post all the ones I meant to.

You've already got Super Hexagon. That's all you need.

I'm pretty sure it's the perfect mobile game.

#20 Posted by McGhee (6128 posts) -

Holy Shit! I had no idea Lunar SSS was on iPhone! That's one of my all time favorite games.

These. Especially the latter, as it's free. Also Ghost Trick if you're a fan of the Phoenix Wright games.

#22 Posted by doobie (612 posts) -

You have to get Cool Pizza. It is free and it is RAD AS HELL.

#26 Posted by BillyMethers (161 posts) -

I recommend Free App-o-Day as an app.

I like it but I stopped paying attention to it for a while.

#27 Edited by johnaze (78 posts) -

The iOS versions of the Phoenix Wright are pretty good, if you haven't played them before.

#28 Posted by Little_Socrates (5834 posts) -

Code Runner is an FMV spy game that has you run around your real-world city and hack into ATMs and shit to expose corrupt politicians and fight terrorist organizations. It's absolutely the best fucking game on iPhone this year. It's so goddamned awesome. Do not miss Code Runner if you own an iPhone. It's too important to fail.

Similarly, people love the "Zombies, Run!" app, although I haven't really gotten to play around with it yet. Generally speaking, Polygon.com has done a great job highlighting iOS games on their podcast, Besties. (yes, it's on iTunes)

As far as the Kairosoft games, they actually all have one of four or five "subgenres" that are pretty noticeable. Be careful when buying those games to buy the ones more similar to what you already like; for example, Epic Astro Story and Dungeon Village are basically the same game, only EA Story is basically a more complex DV, and Cafe Nipponica is the good version of Hot Springs Story. Pocket League Story is probably most similar to Grand Prix Story, and it's my second-favorite version of their style, right after Game Dev Story.

Beat Sneak Bandit

Seriously, play this game.

#31 Posted by Alexandru (345 posts) -

Deus Ex Human Revolution. It's available on all 3 HD platforms.

#32 Posted by Jrinswand (1745 posts) -

I've said it before and I'll say it again: The only game you need on an iPhone is Words With Friends. Game Dev Story, Jetpack Joyride, and the Infinity Blade games are pretty awesome as well but seriously, WWF is all you need.

@handlas: Hero Academy is amazing!

#42 Posted by BBAlpert (1799 posts) -

If you like puzzley kinds of games, I can't recommend Where's My Water enough. Osmos is a cool game, but I don't know if I really like it on a phone. Maybe it's not an issue if it's the only version you've played, but I feel like the screen size and lack of precision of a small touch screen (compared to a mouse and a monitor) can become an issue on some levels. The same applies to World of Goo. The Kairosoft games are generally pretty good time wasters, although they all tend to boil down to just minor variations on a small handful of mechanics.

Tiny Planes

All the Telltale games they've put up (Choose your favorite! mine's Puzzle Agent!)

#45 Posted by Fobwashed (2503 posts) -

Devil's Advocate. It's got great character, style and pretty fun turn based courtroom action.

Blueprint3D is a fun little puzzle game.

Beat it! is a nice music game.

I buy so many iOS games and never actually play them. Don't fall into the same trap!
