Heh! I lurk, but I've been too busy to get much gaming in, so I've been avoiding looking at the Halo 3 thread. Its kinda like being a sex offender out on parole and purposefully avoiding watching America's Next Top Model.

In that case, my most played iPhone game is Sol Free. I know, its a friggin Solitaire game, but it makes me happy.

But I also recently got Flick Bowling which I found to be surprisingly fun and well made. I hope that they put in network play, because that would be uber sweet.

My first love (as far as iPhone games go) though was MotionX Poker. Very well made dice poker game.

Hi Sek!

Not to continue the derail, but Dead Space is pretty cool so far. Its one of those FPS's that's really well made and has a good amount of depth to it, with the animated film and comics to fill in the story* (*not included). The interface is unique, and the voice actors are actually good. And I like the design of it as well.

Its a bit easy on Medium, so I'll go back through it on Hard to see if its a good challenge. It gets the ::maroma:: endorsement.

Aurora Feint looks fun but how does it differ from say bejeweled?

I like Morocco a lot. I've found the AI to be incredibly difficult.

I'll throw in votes for Aurora Feint, Backgammon, Spinner and DizzyBee as well.

You've had your cheap fling with us, and now you've moved on to getting kids and mortgage. I see how it is.

so i guess its best to wait a week or so before you buy an app since the developers are just going to drop the price. paid $4.99 for pathways and it just went down to $1.99

Look at the bright side, at least you didn't pay $9.99 for enigmo.

Lux Touch (free Risk)
Quordy (Boggle)
Scrabble
Motion X Poker

Those are about the ones I've found have the most replay ability.

I find a lot of the games lose their appeal after you've unlocked all the levels/content. Makes reinstalling quite nice though .

Early on I played a lot of Dizzy Bee - still fun but could use more levels.

Plenty of puzzlers: Subway Shuffle, CubicMan, Blocked, Lumen - all good fun, but again, once you exhaust the content (or it gets too hard to bother - Subway ) ....

Recently JellyCar - great fun, and free! iBall3D - great potential.

Got Enigmo while it was on sale, but I find it rather hard.

I want to say that I'm really enjoying Flick Bowling. Playing it a lot, and finding it a bit challenging but not terribly difficult. A good balance.
