Default Math or word puzzle games

I enjoyed Kenken better than Soduko and was wondering if y'all would recommend any other math/ numbers games for ios. I have Exponential Invasion an have enjoyed that as well.
Also as a similar question are there any word games recommended.

Drop 7 is quite a popular math style puzzler.
Oh! Cube recently went free, not sure if it still is, but I bought it for $1.99 a while ago and really enjoyed it.
It's sudoku style gameplay but you create awesome cute 3D objects and collect them for your trophy room

Some of my fav word games are:
Bookworm- PC classic from popcap - spelling out the longest words you can using the letters on the board.
7 little words (free) this is a MUST HAVE every iOS owner should have this- it's free and it's bloody amazing. You get clues like " mans best friend" and you have to find Canine but all he words are broken up into pieces like CA NI NE.
Text twist- old pc classic I used to play- basically finding anagrams
Wordsworth - 2 player word game - pass and play or play against others online- lots of different modes (lite)
Puzzlejuice- mixture of tetris and word game
Crux - lots of crossword puzzles

Now this isn't a word game or a math game, but it's a very tricky puzzle game that makes you think and makes you use logic in a fun way. It's called "colorbind" and there is a free lite version.
I strongly suggest trying it. It's very rewarding when you solve a difficult level.
It's basically about paper ribbons..you have different colored ribbons, like blue and red, and you have colored dots on the screen. You have to match up the blue ribbon the the blue dots by weaving the ribbon around the level until all dots have been filled in, then you use the red ribbon to weave throughout the level to collect all the red dots. It may sound simple but it gets very challenging. Each ribbon can pass through each other once horizontally, you cannot pass through "bends" and if you have two ribbons overlapping where a dot is present, the ribbon going vertical is the ribbon who fills the dot.

It's called colorBIND (not blind) check out the free lite version! I'm sure you'll fall in love like I did!

Also, I saw you in a past thread about the game "brainergy" Theresa similar game called "light the flower" wher eyou have to use puzzle elements to direct the light onto the plant to give it sunlight.. It's quite a decent puzzler and gets quite logical in the later levels.

If you havent played wheres my water, I also strongly suggest you do! (free lite version as well)
Also try sprinkle,penguin patrol, joining hands, there are SO many good puzzle games in the AppStore that really make you think and are cute at the dame time!

For word games, I can recommend Spelltower, it's great. Wooords is also a nice one.

If you enjoy Colorbind, you might enjoy Trainyard as well [you can try the free version Trainyard Express to see if you like it, it has lots of puzzles]

Also, there is a stickied thread for games recommendations, you probably would have got more recommendations there.

Not sure if they are still selling it, but Big Top 10 is a very well done, fast paced and addictive number game.

I eventually got too good at it -- the top difficulty was not hard enough, but it took me a gazillion hours to get to that point.
