Game Update Problem

Hi everyone, first post here so I hope my question doesn't make to much of a fool of myself.
Anyway iTunes says I need to update Scribblenauts Remix, mines 1.2.3 to 1.3 and Dead Space (World), mines 1.03 to 1.3.10 but no matter what I try, whether from iTunes on my PC or from the App store on my Touch they don't update.
Wasn't to long winded was it and if I'm doing something stupid any help would be appreciated, never had this kind problem before.
Cheers.

Yeah my Touch is 4th gen 8g IOS 5.01, I've tried deleting the apps and re-downloading them, I've tried updating from the touch and the PC. The only thing I've not tried is deleting and downloading from the app store on the touch.
Keep your suggestion coming.
Thanks.

Ok this driving me Fxxxxxx insane, I've tried deleting both games from iTunes and downloading them again, same result, no update.
I've tried deleting them from both iTunes and my Touch then using the App Store to install them on the Touch, when I sync back to iTunes once again no update.
When I click on the check for updates in iTunes it says there isn't any but when I check in the app store they still have the update option, I'm at a total loss, if anyone has any more ideas or help that would be great.
Cheers,

I'm sorry to bump this topic but has no one got any ideas what's happening to me. I'm not a total noob when it comes to Touch's, I JBed my 2nd gen but decided not to on my 4th gen (perhaps I should).
I've used flash cards on my DS put CFW on my PSP, I'm not trying to show off but I'm just saying I do know my around these devices a fair bit.
I had the same thing with Age of Barbarians wouldn't update through iTunes so I stuck it on my Touch and updated using app store, worked fine but Scribblenauts and Dead Space won't update no matter what I do.
Please has no one any suggestions as to what's happening.

My random guess is you probably don't have enough space on your device to update them, it roughly takes about double the size of the IPA file to be able to install it.

I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out

Ok that might account for the Touch, even though I deleted loads of apps to make extra room but what about iTunes on my PC where I've got gigs of space.

I actually just checked dead space on my itunes and it has an update button there instead of downloaded. I'd say Apples probably messed up somewhere and to forget about it.

I don't believe it's a new update as I have gamecenter etc I think itunes is just wacky.

Thanks for your response Teknikal, I don't suppose you could tell me what version your dead space is,especially in itunes and your touch if possible. Mines 1.03 and it has world in brackets next to the name.
