Don't Run with a Plasma Sword is my favorite.

Darkness Rush is the best looking.

Maybe something something like an EASY top-down shooter that you keep upgrading your ship?

...or really any kind of shooter/beat'em-up where you just get stronger, and stronger, and stronger...
Megaman x

For a shooter I guess was going to say super laser but actually if u haven't played space miner ore burst that's like exactly what you would want except it's more dual stick...

Anyways there's way to many games where u keep getting stronger and stronger As that's the point behind alot of games...

I dunno the best but if ur staying away from RPGs with heavy dialogue:

Star warfare
Waking mars

(and these games are just on my front page)

If ur looking for something more specific Im not sure but for. Beatem up I guess like zombieville USA, speaking of games where u get stronger from mikamobile Battlehearts another good one.

And finally glowfish just cuz its awesome

I don't really like any endless runners, but I got into Jetpack Joyride at one point, but I don't really like it. I never saw the fun in Temple Run, but Don't Run With a Plasma Sword is pretty cool.

Favorite games:

League of Evil 2, Rocket Bits, Super Crate Box, Retro Racing, INC, Choco Run, Swordigo.

Do you know if KOFi-2012 is universal?

Amazing time to be an iOS gamer. That is all. I am freaking stoked.

LEGO Harry Potter: Years 5-7 (console version of the game for $4.99? It's still freaking $40 on the Vita)

King of Fighters 2012 (Online multiplayer and 12 more characters for what's already the best iOS fighter? Wow.)

RPG Dragon's Odyssey Frane (One of the best-looking iOS RPGs I've seen. From the makers of Across Age, one of my favorite iOS RPGs.)

Brainsss (Looks like an awesome RTS.)

My Little Hero (Another platformer from the makers of Pizza Boy, which is still one of the best platformers on the iOS? A Dollar?!)
