list looks great and i like the categories with the exeption of 1st person en 3rd person, because those are camera angles not really a type of game.
Rather make it 1stperson/classic. Because you have also 1st person escape the room games.
The others are great though. Forgot gamebooks

Just go for it and let's hope the TA community keeps posting new point and clickgames here so the list can get updated.

Gobliiins 2 is also out wich didn't get much coverage by sites and reviewers cause of part 1.

Games i like: Prison Life RPG, Doom Classic, Party Hard Go and Death Road to Canada.

Actually, you're not veering off topic at all. This thread is as much a discussion about the games itself as it is about adding games to the list. Unfortunately I can't answer your question because I don't have an iPad. I've heard that Back To The Future is pretty good, but I've not really heard anything about Wallace And Gromitt. Given Telltale's sense of humor, though, I'd imagine W&G is pretty good.

I'll have to think about the 1st / 3rd person thing. It's true that they are "just camera angles", but in the same respect (to me at least) there's a much different feeling when you're playing something like King's Quest vs. a game like Path Of The Dragon. For some reason seeing your character makes a big difference.

Gobliins 2 is on the list. It's a shame it hasn't gotten much coverage. I haven't played the iPhone version of these games yet, but I loved the PC versions way back when.

I would agree that the Gamebook Adventures tend to be of a better quality, but keep in mind that the stories in Fighting Fantasy are 15-20 years old. Unfortunately not all writing ages well
