Default Underplayed games & hidden gems

Please feel free to list some of your own "hidden gems" and let's get em out there so they start becoming less hidden. Post whatever games you feel fit the above description whether it's a list or has descriptions etc..(descriptions more helpful) * note please refrain from posting links that are seperate from the name and description as it takes up space etc..

This list is made up of comments from numerous people including myself.. If you want credit for it ill be happy to leave what you post in quotes(this hasn't been necessary as the original posts can be found in the thread and this list created for easy viewing to the members and public etc...)

*Devs are also welcome to post here...to share game info etc...
Finally, putting your games in bold also helps(I'm in the process of doing it for the rest)


The "List"

Xenome, this fallout like game was fun and felt ridiculously massive, and at 99 cents you can't beet it.

Chocorun - For using a unique one-touch control system, probably the best Super Meat Boy-like, IMO

Bug Heroes - I always thought this never got the popularity it deserves.

Meganoid - Another one of my favorite platformers

Pet Shop Girl - a match-3 game combined with time management elements that is seriously not loved enough

Pig Flick - a casual arcade game where you control three pigs running down three different lanes, collecting coins and avoiding obstacles. Each level is very short and so it encourages you to replay it multiple times to get the perfect score.

Super Bit Dash - A semi endless runner where you swipe in different directions to navigate the level and get past obstacles. The controls are tricky at first but once you get used to it it's really fun.

Ranch Rush - A really fantastic time management game where you build a farm while filling orders. Way better than most of the time management games on the appstore.

ASYNC Corp - A match three game where you are swapping pieces between two sides of the screen. Has a lot of unlockable stuff and quirky style.

Crazy Hedgy-best 3D platformer out there and by far one of the best games on the app store. Just hasn't gotten a ton of recognition

Slam Dunk King-this one's free(mium, though iAPs are way more optional), but it's a heck of a lot of fun.

Tank Battalion Blitz-this one's published by a big name (Namco!) but it never has been spotted anywhere on the charts or in these forums or in reviews (bar one) that I've seen. Probly the best tank game available from what I've seen.

Curvebot-not sure how to describe it best, but it's a lot of fun.

Gameloft Sports Pack-It's by Gameloft, but never has really took off the ground that I've seen. Or it just hasn't when I've been on iOS. Either way, it has 3 quality sports games and is a load of fun.

Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon is a gorgeous touch to fly game with hand drawn levels.

Vikings slice - it's a copy of ice slice by nitrome but even better controls in my opinion. Though cloning is wrong, it's very fun. You slice pieces of ice to knock Vikings into the ship using puzzle strategy
There's a Free lite version

Joining hands - not super hidden, but it didn't get anywhere near the amount of recognition that it should have!
You have to make all the characters join hands, set on a hexagon board, different characters have different personalities.. Emos need to be a space away from everyone else, some have 1,2,3,4, or 5 hands, some hands rotate others are fixed, ghosts must also be away from the others. Very fun game..played it through twice

Puddle puzzles- total hidden gem..found it by mistake and I love it
Puzzler with water physics - only game I've seen with that mechanic.you got to get puddles into the warp hole whilst he is floating in water..you have to rotate your device to move the water around, and activate switches and stuff to get puddles to the warp hole.There's a Free lite version

Juice belts - really fun puzzler..very unique..it's a shame it got no updates
It's a physics puzzler involving juice..you have to get the fruit into the blenders to make juice , you add elements ( like with feed me oil and caseys contraption) to the scene to make the fruit end up in the blender

Rotate & roll - this is fun as..was popular ages ago but not so much now
you have to rotate your phonebaround to control a little guy to collect the stars without falling out of the world. Based on a flash game

Construction zoneis the same as rotate, used to be popular, not so much now..It's kinda like simple physics but more in depth.. You need to build buildings ..if you like moonlites or world of goo you'll love this.
There's a Free lite version for HD

Moonlights - similar to world of goo..but there's no characters like goo balls, you just have to build the correct structure that'll with stand the wind and reach the moon. There's a Free lite version

Trundle - alternate sort of puzzler, kinda abstract like Wog and contre jour, you need to get the trundle to the other side of the screen .. There's a Free lite version

Darkness Rush:Saving princess - Unreal powered endless runner that looks beautiful and goes for something different other than jump and collect. you can attack some obstacles, temporarily fly and transform into a werewolf/vampire for more power/flight.

Osiris Legends - 3d RPG designed for wii and psp but they lost budget and decided to port it to iOS, plays a bit like the tales games with its separate screen for battles, but very active attack and dodge system with skills. Long game as well.

Vertex Blaster - great 2 stick shooter in the vein of geometry wars, with 3 game modes including one protection mode where you have to stop towers getting attacked and heal them up by changing weapon, nice spin. Icing on the cake is support for icontrolpad analogue sticks

Final Run - maybe not a gem as it hasnt been out very long, but as far as i can tell no-one noticed it. Its a 3d driving game where some levels are exploration based, some challenges are speed based and some are combat based with car base and zombie enemies. extremely well polished

First Touch Soccer - It was easily better than Fifa 11 and I haven't played Fifa 12, but I doubt it's that far away from that. It got under the radar cause of Fifa obviously, but it's just so damn good! Only problem is that it isn't licensed by FIFA so you have to import kits there yourself.

Spongebob's Fun Time - When people see the name Spongebob, I doubt it gives them high expectations unless you're under 10, but this one's actually a really good puzzle game! Heck Gamezebo even gave it 5/5 and I couldn't agree more! It's like Angry Birds meets Peggle which has been made before if I'm right, but it really works in this. The levels are so random when you hit a jelly, it can take other jellys down leading in to total epic mess. There's also nice power ups that you can buy!

Hypership Out Of Control - This one I've been praising quite a lot, but for a reason! It's so much fun since the game focuses more on speedy flying and dodging rather than shooting. New update made it even better!

Pawn'd - Match-3 game with chess pieces, nuff said! Basically you move the gems like chess pieces. Move the horse gem like a horse pawn. There's 3 modes which all are different and unique and there's no boring "classic" match-3 game. Has beaten Dungeon Raid in hours lately although it doesn't quite match there.

Modern Combat 3 - I know what you're thinking... This is not a hidden gem. Okay, maybe it's not hidden and maybe it's not a shiny gem, but it is a gem inside still. People are overlooking it because of framerate issues and bugs, but even though there are some, it's still the most fun multiplayer experience so far on an iOS device imho!! So much fun, best shooter on handheld devices hands down.

Wizpin is an amazing game that should have got a lot more praise and players then it did. It was noticed for about a week then shrunk out of existence. This game is a must have for its unique gameplay and nice animations.

Push Panic-Possibly the most frantic and enjoyable puzzle game on the App Store. How this didn't get as much attention as it should have is no ones clue but it is a must for anyone.

Bring Me Sandwiches -So this game got the top game for a week and now is no where to be seen. It's an amazing game with a great story, huge amount of content and brilliant gameplay.

Kosmo Spin -Although Simogo are well know now Kosmo Spin is still a game AI never hear mentioned at all. The gameplay is amazing and it is so unique. I found it better than I found their latest games.

I used to love jump out..it used to be pretty big but they haven't updated in a while so the new wave of gamers probably don't know about it I guess..

Mine would be-
Vikings slice - it's a copy of ice slice by nitrome but even better controls in my opinion. Though cloning is wrong, it's very fun.

I only have 4, if you look at my sig you will know why, i tend to go for the big name games.

Nevertheless I have found a few through this place.

Darkness Rush:Saving princess - Unreal powered endless runner that looks beautiful and goes for something different other than jump and collect. you can attack some obstacles, temporarily fly and transform into a werewolf/vampire for more power/flight.

Osiris Legends - 3d RPG designed for wii and psp but they lost budget and decided to port it to iOS, plays a bit like the tales games with its separate screen for battles, but very active attack and dodge system with skills. Long game as well.

Agree with Clash Force, great little retro style platformer.

Another great underated game is 'Final Run'

Please check that out, small indie group have created it, great 'mad max' style world and you're in a car with the usual weapons etc, great little storyline, really enjoy it.

Battleheart-an arcade/rpg fighter in which you control four units and try and survive waves of monsters.

Enviro-bear 2010-you control a bear in a car. 'Nuff said.

Dungeon raid-kind of like a match 3+ game. You draw lines through various items to accumulate equipment and health to help defeat monsters.

Clash Force - another great hidden gem is . AWESOME retro action platformer!

Nihilumbra, been enjoying that a lot lately

Call of mini: zombies -Only 99c, and is a lot funner then left2die IMO.It's a third person shooter using somewhat blocky textures (it's meant to be blocky.) it is made by triniti and is an arena shooter, it features online co op survival, a vs, in which you vs other people. You can upgrade weapons or buy new ones, if you shoot at the zombies, sometimes they explode.
You can also buy new characters to play as.

Hero Academy- Its basically all I play now. Deep tactics in a words with friends style package.

Urban Rivals - Multiplayer card game. Very cool art.

Star Breed - 'Choose your own adventure' style, with a couple minigames.

Russian Dancing Men - Tap to avoid obstacles. Funny cutscenes and music.

Battle Monster Casino - Collect and train monsters to fight in a sort of 'battle royale' in the casino. Place bets with credits you earn on the monster you think will win. Oddly addicting.

Auditorium - Puzzle game. Direct streams of light (sound?) to a specified goal(s). Really nice music.

Zombie Parkour Runner/Zombie Runner Z Best runners involving zombies!

Beauty Run don't let the name turn you off, it's a great runner that offers a unique gliding mechanic, gets pretty challenging as well

Papercut great runner with a superb soundtrack and a constant day/night cycle that makes your running feel like a journey

Hoggy/Robot Wants Kitty great overlooked puzzle platformers

The Rainy Day Most relaxing runner out there, captures the ambiance of a rainy day on the street. You run away from rain drops, take shelter in once in a while and rescue lost pets. The goal is to reach your home without getting drenched. Recommended for the retro graphics and perfect ambiance

- Continuity 2 - A great puzzle game set as a platformer. Great visual style and music. The puzzles can get frustratingly difficult though. [for some people this is a positive]

- Cubes vs Spheres - You get spheres that you have a launch at an increasing number of cubes headed your way. Looks as crazy as it sounds, set in first person. Great graphics and a wide variety of sphere weapons. Smashing cubes is very satisfying

- Zombie Smash - A horizontal TD of sorts. Defend against zombies coming your way. You have to kill zombies by physically picking them up or using special power ups. Lot of fun smashing zombies

- Hard Lines - Snake with a great visual style and additional modes.

- Mad Chef - A game similar to fruit ninja without the swiping. you need to get ingredients and complete recipes. Same dev as Bug Heroes. Additional modes and lots of upgrades

Axe in Face If anyone knows me or follows my tweets and posts they will be more than aware that this is my favorite game by a long shot. I have completed every level to the highest score possible and still play the game constantly. Good job they are making it Universal and adding a second level pack.

Jump Out - I know this game has finally gotten some popularity recently but I think I was one of the first people to have it... I'm mean there were a few reviews but nothing much. I felt the game was really good and was on par with any other physics based puzzler, or atleast had the potential to be. The game was finally updated recently with some new stuff but still nothing like I had hoped for... I'd still check it out though...


The Blackhole - it's a puzzle game that's similar I think to aZ more popular game with the same idea.I think The Blackhole just works better then the other game and has more depth (not quite sure of the name might have sumthing to do about germs or something?)

Eboo - well I don't know how well known his game really is but I do know that Ive never seen it mentioned and that its really fun. I guess it's kind of like a cave flyer? I dunno it's the kind of game where u take off and fly around trying to get to land on another spot while collecting stars, dodging things and even picking up and dropping stuff. It feels like it should be popular I dunno maybe it's old, but it has great gameplay controls , graphocs etc...(Ok this game was actually just rereleased under another title.. Sumthin like cave flyer or something,not sure but....I lol at everyone in the reviews not knowing it's an old game. Just Proves how buried good games can get)

Pollushot - probly the most unique game I've ever played combing the slingshot type physicals of a physics platformer with a shmup. You shoot enimies catch the damage and shootem again.

Buccaneer Blitz 1 - It's one of those Rts games whEre ur constantly moving ( modern combat etc..) except this game takes place with boats in a fully 3d world with alot more interactivity. For example you get to control and shoot doWn other ships manually. There's alot more to it overall... The game is able to keep the simplicity of a fast pace Rts game whil still getting the player more Involved with what's going on.

Froggato - This platformer which is actually probly on par with a snes platformer in terms of originality and gameplay. Is not ur average fast paced speed run type platformEr. And it's not Terra Noctis in fact I've only heard it mentioned a few times even on here before, and at 4.99 it's seems a bit overpriced but I highly recommend u check it out.

Axe in Face(simple line drawing defense game). Probly more recognized than anything Above but still a game I doubt many people have even heard of.

Shoot the birds - exactly what it sounds like... Shoot birds flying across the screen with ur Bow And arrow.....u play the role of a scarecrow

Vibre - like the game circadian, you push circles in the right order etc..

Dabble - a fun word game, I think I've seen some other variations of it..

Bitter sam - I feel like this game got over looked for some reason? It's similar to saving yellow and captain antaritica, except it came out awhile ago.

Rejoin - Im not quite sure how I found this game but when I did there was only about 100 other people with the game, now it has alot more. It's a really hard but fun puzzle game where u control two balls with one button and try to get them back together.

Stunt pear - I hadn't heard of this game until Gabrien from this forum reccomeneded it. It's the only game I've ever heard say good things about and thays saying something.

European war 3 - despite it's name this is actually a really fun strategical board game.. Where you do have control of armies in wars other than just Europe. In campaign you play in Wars spanning years across the world... For example you can play in the civil war and be the rebels or the north, you can play ww1, the American vs British war(forgot the name). In conclusion it's A great game with a bad game title..

Fly2themoon - I think this was rereleased like eboo(now pod flyer or sumtuing?) was.. Anyways its actually alot like that game except it looks kind of like a Cave game. So it's a pod landing game with the design of a Cave shump.. Really good

Dungeons and such - a Textbook sytle Rpg that's suprisingly deep and enjoyable....

Piggy adventure - there's this game called the 3 sheep or something and it's alot like what this game is...except I find this one to be much better.

Haraki - not sure how to describe this one kind of like pong except you control two little people. I guess it's like raquet ball In 2d because ucan hit the sides and even go on the sides...

Fly with me - a good .99 game from EA that got overlooked and fell off the charts.. Not sure why it was a good game

Bang - the card game... Ok probly not that hidden but it's a cool game with some pretty deep multiplayer that doesnt get enough recognition..

Iron worm - this is a sequel two there other worm game... Except this one os about killing enimies,aybe they hoped that would make the game more popular ut it didn't sad because it's from 10 tons a well know developer and it's a good game as well

Squirmee Redux - a pretty old game that at one point in time was popular enough that it got a redux... Hard to describe the game but it's pretty difficult but fun..

Ennies - kind of like worms but has tanks and stuff, the people that play it are really into it... The game is just underground.. Check it out

Critter chaos - a pretty fun physics puzzler game kind of like world of goo meets angry birds, consists of flicking goo together with balls to solve puzzles..

PerfEct cell - a game this good should be alot more popular, you control a tiny ball of something that's alive and stuck in some lab. You goal is to escape by killing the army thats holding u in there. You can spit yourself up. Draw lines of where u want to go before you do it.. A really great game that u should play

Slingshot racing - ok I know this isnt hidden but I feel it starting to slip into that reigon... I think with a game this good it should have more staying power.. I guess its the lack or multiplayer... Oh well

Well, that's all for today. If you have any games you feel need to be brought to other people's attention please do so. Thank you

Army of Darkness: tower defense. Like the other poster said, it's very addictive

Shadow Era: TCG. Beautiful designs, very competitive field, deep strategy.

Jangle: word game. It's only five 30-second rounds against the computer or an online/local opponent in real time. Very fast paced and challenging.

Poker Kingdom: Chinese poker. Has an online multiplayer mode, but never used it.

Toon shooter: this is a superfun shmup with pleasing graphics and creative gameplay (2 player co-op on same device, c'mon).

Vay (absolutely fantastic J-RPG that offers hours and hours of gameplay)

Onslaught! (great action game for "retro 2D" graphic fans)

Legends of Yore - AWESOME retro rouge like.

SEI - it's like Tetris and Scrabble at the same time.

8 - Bit Rally - more like Sega CD rally!

Battle for Cydonia - sort of a mix of... dare I say Command & Conquer?... and a console version (read: the Genesis/SNES versions) of Battletech.

Pixel Ninja - this is what Tenchu for the PSOne would have been like if it was on the SNES.

4 tenors - in this hilarious 4 played same device multiplayer game, your object is to knock off the other tenors and steal the spotlight.

Ziggurat - in this overlooked real time defense game your standing on a hill protecting it shooting down enimies.

Roboto - this I a higquality platformer that is seriously underplayed, it's up there with the best, check it out.

Pigs in trees - another cool game where u fly around as a pig in a plane defending ur base from birds...

Siege hero - this game was awesome, the day it cane out it had consistent high reviews.... The first chapter is ok, it's the second chapter where the game gets really good. It's a first person angry birds basically. At first it was just about shooting down the enemy but evlved into this really great combo of shooting and puzzle elements. It hasn't gotten an update in a awhile so I feel like alot of people are missing this one...(ok this was Finnaly updated a few weeks ago with the age of cowboys - it offererred the same great gameplay as in the previous chapters)



Finger Shot Rpg - for as much love and hype as it's gotten recently I didnt wanna add it but even with that added hype I still feel the game is getting the love it deserves, turn-based multiplayer with multiple characters and slingshot mechanism...its amazing

Gunman Clive - for as a good a game it is.. I don't see it getting enough attention... I think it's the graphics that make this one really stand out to go along with the addicting Megaman- style gameplay.

Areomasters - this game is underlooked for being as polished as it is, a great dds...

Get out of my galaxy - with some amazing graphics and fun gameplay this game deserves a little more praise

Puzzle sphere - another great overlooked puzzeler

Coliseum heroes - or Coloseum two versions of bassicly the same game, reason being the original developer want getting the sales he needed so he turned to gamevil. It's an arena hack and slash that's fun and engrossing also challenging...hard to put down.

Revolt - this came out in 2011? For 2.99 ur getting ur money's worth

Onibi - it's a puzzle game infused with music and really great for the time it lasts..

Princess pajama - it's free and has a perfect 5 from 50 people

Raon defenders - haven't played this one either but looks good

Coco loco - for being a chilingo game similar to angry birds I'd think this would be a bad thing.. But actually it's not, its a pretty fun slinging game..

Army or darkness - this game won't let u stop playing until uve best it, that addictive

Dragons rage - not sure what happened to this game it was for a time pretty huge. You control. Dragon move him around 360• with the acceleramator while blowing fire at swarms of people coming to get u(mostly knights and archers) kind of a nive twist being the dragon with an awesome gameplay mechanic

Monster Island - Ok as far is I'm concerned this is Miniclips best game it's a juiced up Fragger that relies alot more on puzzle strategy by switching between what to throw.

Early bird - this game was insanely popular awhile ago and free.. Kind of like the old temple run or JPJR well it just got it's first update a little while ago in along time. Don't be fooled into thinkging its an AB rip. It's one of the the few legit bird games with a compeletly new gameplay mechanic.

flaming igglo - it's a really complicated tdesque game where ur try to keep ir igloo from burning down while shooting a ship, playing around with a bunch of animals and throwing ice cubes and snowballs...

Worms golf - this is a fun mix between worms and golf plays kind of like super stick man golf except you can play multiplayer with the worms taking turns..

Reckless Getaway - though theyre probly known for their success with reckless racing, reckless getaway just might be the better game... Running from the cops in a 2d down perspective while manuvering around traffic... It's insanely fun...

Osmos - I think I need to remind people that this game is probly still one of the best games on iOS and came up with a complete new game mechanic that left people speechless, and it still offers that same expierience now.

New

Sugar Kid - Well I had a good amount of fun with this game. It features touch based line drawing puzzle gameplay. The objective is to protect the sugar kid from from dropping liquids by using lines to redirect where the flow of water(or other liquids) drops down to. This isn't the whole game though some levels require you to aim the liquid at sugar kid, some you need to fill in grids. Another aspect of thr gameplay is the ability to stop sugar kid by touching him as he walks back and forth. To sum it up the game looked to have everything need needed to be a hit, fun addicting and different gameplay, published by Bulkypix.. Unfortunately the game fell under the radar before it was even released.

Lord of the Roads - Being a big fan of magic cube I felt like they really nailed it on the head with Lord of the Roads. Combing RPGs elements with a shootem up type game. I felt that it was not just unique but also alot of fun. When it was initially released it had some popularity but eventually it plummeted to the abyss of games that are hidden from the pubic eye. I guess the biggest downfall was it's lack of replayabilty. Although there is a good bit up lvling up diff characters it still is basically the same game over and over.

Ecapology - this game can get really difficult and it was designed that way. Made by someone on a bus in-between tours, it doesn't come off feeling like game made by someone with no knowledge of game development. It's a unique concept for a puzzle game and one I'd def. recommend.

Love, Hate and the other ones - a fairly new realease, it didn't get the attention it deserved I feel. Esp being an award winning game. It's a puzzle game based on calling to or moving away different little blob characters. You control the 2 main characters Love and Hate. Love calls the "other ones" towards her with a kiss while hate does the opposite. For a game that I feel is pretty deep and polished I felt like it should have atleast been a gotw nominee but unfortunately it's lack of popularity kept it off the polls.

Spooky Hoofs(was surprised to find out not a lot have heard of this game)

Totem Runner (this is pretty new, but i dont think it got the attention it deserves)

Captain Antarctica (this came out before Super Mole Escape, and they are very similar, and both are pretty fun. This didnt get the attention it deserves either)

I,ll update more later

Wanted to recommend Sling It. Actually it's the sequel to Pollushot, with leaderboards, stackable powerups, upgrades, and more enemy variety

First Touch Soccer - It was easily better than Fifa 11 and I haven't played Fifa 12, but I doubt it's that far away from that. It got under the radar cause of Fifa obviously, but it's just so damn good! Only problem is that it isn't licensed by FIFA so you have to import kits there yourself.

Spongebob's Fun Time - When people see the name Spongebob, I doubt it gives them high expectations unless you're under 10, but this one's actually a really good puzzle game! Heck Gamezebo even gave it 5/5 and I couldn't agree more! It's like Angry Birds meets Peggle which has been made before if I'm right, but it really works in this. The levels are so random when you hit a jelly, it can take other jellys down leading in to total epic mess. There's also nice power ups that you can buy!

Hypership Out Of Control - This one I've been praising quite a lot, but for a reason! It's so much fun since the game focuses more on speedy flying and dodging rather than shooting. New update made it even better!

Pawn'd - Match-3 game with chess pieces, nuff said! Basically you move the gems like chess pieces. Move the horse gem like a horse pawn. There's 3 modes which all are different and unique and there's no boring "classic" match-3 game. Has beaten Dungeon Raid in hours lately although it doesn't quite match there.

Modern Combat 3 - I know what you're thinking... This is not a hidden gem. Okay, maybe it's not hidden and maybe it's not a shiny gem, but it is a gem inside still. People are overlooking it because of framerate issues and bugs, but even though there are some, it's still the most fun multiplayer experience so far on an iOS device imho!! So much fun, best shooter on handheld devices hands down.

I've got tens of others and I'd gladly list them, but those are the ones on my iPod... Except FTS which just came in my mind.

Well mine are:

Axe in Face
If anyone knows me or follows my tweets and posts they will be more than aware that this is my favorite game by a long shot. I have completed every level to the highest score possible and still play the game constantly. Good job they are making it Universal and adding a second level pack.

Wispin
Wispin is an amazing game that should have got a lot more praise and players then it did. It was noticed for about a week then shrunk out of existence. This game is a must have for its unique gameplay and nice animations.

Push Panic
Possibly the most frantic and enjoyable puzzle game on the App Store. How this didn't get as much attention as it should have is no ones clue but it is a must for anyone.

Bring Me Sandwiches
So this game got the top game for a week and now is no where to be seen. It's an amazing game with a great story, huge amount of content and brilliant gameplay.

Kosmo Spin
Although Simogo are well know now Kosmo Spin is still a game AI never hear mentioned at all. The gameplay is amazing and it is so unique. I found it better than I found their latest games.

Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja, Cut the Rope

But seriously Sir Benfro's Brilliant Balloon is a gorgeous touch to fly game with hand drawn levels.
