Super Hexagon - this game never gets old.

All the Jeff Minter games - where is Hover Bover for iOS?

Battleheart - this game is magic. we need a full rpg from this guy.

Jetpack Joyride - I played this game so much that it is... disturbing.

Subway Surfers - everything just works in this game. fighter pilots could train their reflexes playing this.

Ski Safari - silly, obnoxious, and soothing fun that floooooows...

Canabalt - stark simplicity, pure game design. Android got an HD version!

Hill Climb Racing - the most underrated game ever released for iOS. No mention of it here on TA, not a single forum thread about it, and yet it is easily the best 2D driving/physics game there is. Bike Baron? MotoHeroz? Don't make me laugh.

Kingdom Rush / FR2 - both of these games are triumphant achievements in design, style, and flat out coding. They are too different to directly compare, and yet they are both the epitome of modern TD. I never tire of firing either game up to try one more zany idea.

Dungeon Raid - this is damn near a perfect game, andthe pathetic copycat clones of it are a sad joke. Yes, when you got SERIOUS about the game you were at the mercy of the lottery of skill options, otherwise this game consumed several months of my life and nearly cost me my marriage. ps. I 'broke' the game twice where it became impossible to die.
