Looking for game recommendations :D

So I just got an iPhone 4 and the thing is damn sweet. I'm now hungry for apps and since this is a game-focused website I thought I'd ask for some games you would not hesitate recommending.

I do know that the first game I'm buying is Game Dev Story, already played the free version and the stories were true, that game is amazing.

  • Tetris
  • Unblock Me
  • Cut the Rope

My top 3 most played games at least, love 'em!

there's Grand Prix Story, too i think if you liked game dev story. it's by the same dudes but you manage a race car driver or something. seems real neat. oh, and Hot Springs Story.

@Vegsen: @AjayRaz: Thanks guys. I heard about Grand Prix Story from the Weekend Confirmed guys, I didn't pay attention to the segment because I didn't have an iPhone, but now who's laughing?

@artofwar420: The guys over at Tested are great at finding new exciting games for iOS in the Apps of the Week series(some are iPad exclusive but I'm sure you'll find a bunch of iPhone apps as well) so maybe that's something to take a look at.

I was never able to stick to one game or the other for very long, I like my frontpage real estate too much. Super Street Fighter IV was solidly built imho. There is a puzzle game involving trains that I really enjoyed. Cut the Rope, Angry Birds, Infinity Blade, are among some of the good ones.

Good choice on Game Dev Story, it's the only game I ever bought for my IPod and I love it.

Is Fruit Ninja on the iPhone? That seems pretty popular.

I'm fairly certain the Grand Prix Story is currently Droid exclusive. If it's not then I need to get right on that.

Street Fighter IV Volt is pretty amazing for an iOS game.

@Vegsen: Definitely, a whole world of content has become relevant now. It's bananas.
