I've never really seen Lane Splitter mentioned anywhere. It's an endless runner on motorbikes.

I have to... HAVE TO mention "Run Kitty Run" here. It's so hidden that it rarely ever gets a mention on even these hidden gems threads. It's a fantastic platformer, with great art work , smooth controls, and lots of exploration. It's easily in my top 5 platformers (and I have played most of the platformers on iOS).

Word!

Also, have you tried Miss Claire Garden? It's a MUST-FRIGGIN-HAVE for platformer fans.

Just tried to find this game in the US App Store but the search didn't show anything. Is it removed?

My personal "hidden" gems are the two League Of Evil games, Bring me Sandwiches (highly recommended), Newtonica, ExZeus, and Glandarius.

Found it, thanks

I forgot to mention:
- Vay (absolutely fantastic J-RPG that offers hours and hours of gameplay)
- Onslaught! (great action game for "retro 2D" graphic fans)

These are the top 5 perhaps lesser known games that took away too many hours of my life:

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).

That last game has me (and my 4-yr old son) playing for as long as our fingers can hold up.

Thanks for posting, this looks pretty cool, is there a set release date? I guess the other one was just a clone or something?
