I actually think Doomdarks is the most interesting game this week but it's kinda cheap for a port to win... R-type II.

*after playing more Calculords it seems to be turning into a crap grind fest, hopefully I'm gravely mistaken. Which leaves Tengami as the only interesting, non-port, game and I've yet to it.
We should just let you decide gotw

That isn't possible, I know.

Don't get me wrong, I love the gotw threads...That s why I participate every week.
I see you on nearly every game Lazer Kat, have you won the lottery Ha Ha Ha.

I agree and unfortunately, threads like these are always a popularity contest. I can only hope they drum-up enough discussion about each titles merits to offer them more exposure... and at least it's better than the garbage top 100 list from Apple, not much better but still.

A game of the month list would actually interest me more but with the fickle nature of gamer that iOS attracts I can see why game of the week is so popular.

*I can't believe Tengami only has one vote.

I wish.
I have given myself about a $15/week budget for apps. Usually $5 of that a week I use to gift apps (I gift every app I love to at least one person).
Sometimes I spend more, especially when a $30 music app that I need comes out.

I can. Honestly, I didn't like it that much. It didn't even make it to my 5 gotw noms.
It is beautiful to look at, but I didn't enjoy the gameplay. I just kept getting stuck.

Haven't been on in a while. Glad to see Bug Heroes 2 came out. Gotta catch up on what seems to be a pretty good list of games.

You sure came back at a good time! BH2, Calculords, and many others last week, Out There and Autumn Dynasty: Warlords this week, and Wave Wave and Foursaken's next game, Block Fortress: War, comes out next week (already!)
