i want to make a list of the great games that have arrived in the past few days/weeks that are being overshadowed by grand theft auto. this thread is for me and everyone who doesnt have GTA as well as everyone who has been too busy with GTA to focus on other apps. i want to ensure that all of the devs (mostly indie) who make these wonderful games are getting the appreciation the deserve without feeling overwhelmed by the eclipse GTA has cast over the app store

so i will start us off.

the horrible vikings
battle blasters
doodle bomb
danger cats
are you alright?
sword and poker
bird strike
infinity project

if you have any more, please share. i as well as many others would like to know

Dawn of the Dead. It's an alright game, and a lot more fun once you get used to the controls. And it just so happened to come out RIGHT after GTA.

Also, games from the past now rendered obsolete by GTA's release:

Payback
Car Jack Streets
Gangstar (somewhat, it's still the only behind the back camera game, but it's missing the content and awesomeness of GTA from what I've heard).

I don't think anyone really wants to be reminded of those :rolleyes:

Oh, lol, on the contrary I just installed the lite versions of both Gangstar and Payback that I had on my iTunes, and was about to put CJS on there tomorrow. Just wanted to play a good game of that genre until I can get GTA.

I just got gta a few hours ago. I only got it because I was bored after beating one of the amazing games on the list; Infinity Project. Infinity Project is an amazing FPS, everyone should check out. Decent graphics, great story and gameplay. A solid 4.5/5 for me.

Harsh, but your right. I didn't read the full post.

To contribute: I thought "The Raging Dead" was pretty unique, even if it wasn't an amazing game.

Meh. I tried it but I could beat the levels too quickly and easily by moving the shorter back and forth, side to side really fast. That's all it took :P

@meridian infinity project IS such a grat game. The devs said a huge update is coming in a few weeks too. Won't give us much dets yet though

it's ok. Rich is a regular here in the forums. I have witnessed MUCH worse from complete morons here. I think he just might be frustrated about all the GTA talk. Idk. But I understand. I know what u mean. Usually, u just have to ignore it (unless is a sterotypical or racist comment- I experienced one today with some scum bag who called Jews cheap) but usually that stuff doesn't happen. There are also a lot of immature/ annoying people you have to look out for. I won't name anyone but when u see it, it kinda just funny to laugh at their immaturity. In addition, lots of people here think they can boss everyone else around. Idk, just an observation. But there are some cool people on this site who will take the time to help you out if u have any questions in the forums while other jerks will just tell u to look it up and post a link to wikipedia lol.

Thanks so much for mentioning Danger Cats!, I really appreciate it!!!

Currently, GTA is sitting four spots above Danger Cats! in the Hot New Games section...I'm hoping some of the lovin' will filter down!!!

I still have 15 or so promo codes if anybody hasn't gotten one yet.

Best,

I was the jerk who sent starmonkey101 to wikipedia. To my defense, he was asking for someone to explain to him what GTA games are all about. But he's right, that was a bit hostile. Please consider this an apology.

They just do. ;) If you like one of their games, you'll like a majority of them.
Comet Racer breaks the mold the most with it's GAME OVER, which many of their games don't have...

i'll have to say doodle army and comet racer. they're the games i play most nowadays

Both great games!

i want to mention battle blasters and horrible vikings again cuz they are both amazing and are not getting the attention they deserve:)

+2 Horrible Vikings, I love this game to pieces!

The STP guys are not trolls, they are honest members looking to discuss iPhone gaming. They have never seemed to try and stir stuff up, but I can see why you might think so from this thread.

Anyway back on topic I agree with Doodle Army, The Horrible Vikings, Parcel Panic, and Battle Blasters

There are a thousand threads in TA and only one is dedicated to GTA plus some minor threads which can't be avoided, so how can you be 'sick and felt like your on a third party rockstar fanboy site'? I personally believed that Minigore/Eliminate/nova and a slew of other games are more hyped than Gta and not half as good!

Payback is pretty fun, lacks GTA graphics and story mode.
CJS is ok, nice story, lacking in graphics.
Gangstar sucks.
2012 ZOMBIES VS ALIENS

I need this to get in the top 50. Can't move from the 70's due to all these new releases!!
This game is so much fun. Trenches is not as good as this new release ADD THIS TO LIST!!!!!!!!!

I believe they are. Don't get me wrong, GTA is probably an amazing game for what i've heard, but most of the games that have been mentioned here, haven't seen the light of the top 100 when everyone knows they deserve it. Most people that are idevice users don't visit gaming sites such as tA, they simply browse the top 100 and look at farmiliar titles or devs (mostly big name devs). When they see the critically acclaimed GTA at the top, they go directly to it. And with the price of GTA along with it's amount of content, they don't bother to search for other games that are not as well known. It also takes more effort to find lesser known games even when we know they might be just as good as GTA. in addition, GTA is the first game ever (I believe) to be featured on the iTunes homepage.

anyone agree?

I disagree, these games are not really overshadowed as people who bought GTA, and yes that includes people from foreign countries who bought itunes card from ebay just to play this game, are buying this the game based on what they learned from the people who already have the psp and ds version. People who bought this are looking for a console quality game as opposed to a casual indy game.
