In no particular order...

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.

As for hidden gems, I nominate a release from this week that seems to be getting completely overlooked: Pebble Universe.
I swear it was the same thing with Wind up Knight, it took so long to get some people to notice it. A physics puzzler is almost impossible though.

Thank you so much. We think we have a really good game in Pebble Universe and big updates planned. It's so hard to get noticed without the economic muscles outside Sweden (we are a small (Mattias and Thomas) swedish company, we're number 10 in Top 25 in paid Apps in Sweden). I'm praying that Touch Arcade will discover Pebble Universe and make a review.

Yeah I hope TA reviews it too, but in the mean time, you should send builds to other sites too!

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
