Hidden Gems

What games on the App Store are hidden, but awesome? Only games that can not be found on the top charts, please.

Hi~!

I would say:

1) Dark Dot: Unique Shoot 'em up where you can change the shape/size of the formation by drawing

2) Monster Burner: Flick fireballs at incoming waves of monsters like a powerful mage!

3) Ravenmark - Scourge of Estellion: great turn based strategy games! I would say one of the better ones!

[these.. maybe at top charts in the past.. but definitely not now anymore. =p]

would that helps.

There are many, many hidden gems in the App Store. I would suggest that you dig through the review archive here on TA. Also, keep track of forum members who try many games (Sanuku, for instance) and search through past posts.

There are also a number of threads on specific genres. Have fun!
