I recommend you pick up Wake the Cat.

It's been a long time since I've been so passionate about a specific iOS game. It's been... a long long time. I quit iOS gaming for a while, but am now back, and now I can not recommend this game highly enough:

Wake the Cat

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/wake-the-cat/id566316638?mt=8

It is a simple premise. You guide a ball of yarn, using various obstacles in the environment, to a kitten who likes to sleep a lot. Can you think of a more adorable premise?

It just released a couple days ago, and I'm sure you all are familiar with it by now, but just in case, I wanted to make you aware of its existence. I have had more fun with this game than any game I've ever played on iOS, I think. Dark Nebula was up there as my favorite iOS game, but I declare it has been swiftly smacked off the top pedestal by a seemingly narcoleptic kitten.

I posted in the game's thread, but I don't want to relegate my enjoyment and passion for the fun of this game to just its thread. I want to make an all new thread on here, to divulge the existence of this amazing, amazing game.

It's only $1 currently. What is stopping you from taking part in this joyous, adorable, and downright bafflingly fun romp?

You got my interest with your post in general, I original thought this was just a pet sim or something. I'll give it a crack.

I considered it, but I thought the installed size would be too large. Do you know what the installed size is? Thanks

Hm... I'm actually not sure about that. The initial download is just under 50 MB, but I'm not sure what that translates to when it's unpacked. Isn't the rule like, the unpacked size is double what the initial download size is?

Ah okay. Thank you very much for the help!

How does one figure out the installed size?

Well apparently my thread got merged with the official Wake the Cat thread. That completely defeats the purpose of my thread! D:

Ah thanks. Yep it's usually about double.. But this game I had installed for ages called oh cube ! Was about 50mbs download size and it actually took up over 400mbs installed.. I never knew because I had iOS 4 and you couldn't check back then.. Then I got iOS 6 and found out all these apps where stealing my memoryz.So I went on a deleting spree and ended up with a few gigs space for the first time in my life, but after a day it was gone, and I'm back to being a stingy minge with my space again. :/ will probably clear some stuff off to atleast try this. At 99c you can't go wrong.

I actually laughed out loud at the "wake the kitty" preference. Cat does sound so official and like.. Unaffectionate. My dad used to be like "PUT THE CAT IN YOUR ROOM" and I'd be like DAD HE'S NOT A CAT he's a beautiful sweet fluffy adorable therapeutic human-like spirit guide.
