Mine too. The only reason itís not in my signature is the limited size of the signature here on TA. I mean come on Ė 191 levels of brilliant puzzle platform mix, AND universal app, AND a freaking dollar? A s.t.e.a.l.

Crystal Cave Classic is also a solid game. Really challenging puzzles, amazing level design, good sounds/music building up a nice atmosphere, and graphics theme Ė something like a mix of Indiana Jones and Montezumaís Revenge.

I have both of these games always on my iPhone. Bought them at full price and never regretted it. Lite versions are also available.

Archibald's Adventure has just the right amount of puzzle solving for me to fully enjoy it. I haven't seen many games come close to it in its category in mobile gaming.

Also bought the Cave Classic HD, which reminds me of my early computer classic games. I love the fact that this developer makes the walkthrough videos so accessible. No getting stuck. Both games are really nice puzzlers.

These are wonderful games, some of my very favorite, and each of the hundreds of levels are solved on separate videos on Youtube, in case you get stuck on a particular level.

There are seemingly tens of thousands of physics-based puzzle games in the App Store, but very few logic puzzle games of this quality and fun.

I wish that Rake-in-Grass would develop a new game similar to Archibald, but with maybe more of a compelling narrative, such as what Valve was able to achieve with Portal and Portal 2. It could involve Sci-Fi, Time Travel, portals, I mean, whatever they can dream up, but with wonderful 2-D levels and lots of logic-based puzzles.

In my opinion Crystal Cave Classsic and Archibald are Rake-in-Grass's strongest games.
