I am not sure, but I would venture a guess battleheart sold well, and it has one beast of an original mechanic. Game play was/is amazing on that one.

You know that game where those slightly angry birds are slingshotting themselves on pigs. Yeah, I know right, who would like that?

I know... Wasn't the iOS version of Crush the Castle released before flash though? If yes, then AB is kind of original even though it takes ideas from that.
