Hi,
I am a low tech person. Am totally not in to games at all, but am thinking of getting some kind of game for my 7yr old for Xmas. He's a brainy, creative kid who's in to Quests and Dragons and Fantasy stories, along with Greek mythology. I'm wondering if there's the perfect game that requires thinking and strategy and is in the theme of some sort of quest. Not too scary. Something where you're on an adventure and have to make decisions about where to go next and what to do next and involves some good thinking skills....Any suggestions?

Any of the Puzzle Quest games might be good. It's basically a quest based game where any fight that happens is handled with a Bejewelled match 3 type puzzle.

Especially the first, take a look at the video of the second.
Apart from that...
Noteworthy is Need for Speed.
My picks too except NfS is too big in file for me. Also, the sales are really good!

Big yes, but I always add the caveat that the only viable character (in my opinion) is the archer. Great Diablo-lite for iOS.

Just saw a few previews for X-com and I'm liking it a lot.

Are there any games with a similar feel on iOS? Preferably for iPad.
