All the items on the list above been played at least twice. Too bad I may have too short a span of attention.

I'd say I haven't played any of my games as much as I would have liked too...everytome I buy a new game, my interest in the previously bought one all but disappears...

Edit: on second thought, there are two games I have played to the max: crash kart, and bobble surfer

I find that I buy games that I ultimately "wish" I had time to play. Everyone has different criteria for their mobile gaming, imo. Mine break down like this:

5-10 mins of gametime: Waiting for the movie to start or stuck in line somewhere or something. Quick arcade action and I'm done. Chopper, FS5 Hockey, iBrawlHTTC of course, SlotZ, iDracula, Topple, Galcon.

10-30 mins of gametime: Waiting for a flight or taking a gamer-lunch. All of the above plus maybe AFD and Contraption. More time for thinking games.

Hour or more of gametime: Stuck on a bus or a plane. Or my recliner and too lazy to reach for the xbox controller. Much more time for thinking games like simcity and uniwar.

If I see a game for the right price that will meet these needs, I usually take the leap.

-- Bobby Carrot Forever.

I finished the first world and a few of the second. I find I'm playing Bobby Carrot Classic 1 more because it's more bite size. BCF just needs more time to figure out because the maps are much bigger and more complicated.

-- The Quest

I have about 5-6 hours of game time into it. Again another game that requires more sit-down time to play.

-- Imprisoned

To be honest I got a bit bored, the fights seem to all the same and wish I have a different weapon. Should've paced myself better.


-- Supermarket Mania

Which I only just ten seconds ago remember that I have it. I think I'll go play this now.
