Bug Heroes - I always thought this never got the popularity it deserves.
Meganoid Another one of my favorite platformers.
This is still a solid list of unknown games, IMO!

Although it's my favorite game of the year so far, I wouldn't call it a hidden gem, because it is actually selling well and staying on the charts.. But for every good game there's 50 other games buried under the massive heap of ever-growing new games

People are always asking what to play.. Well they can pick from anygame listed in here once they run out of games they know about...

I could post a bigger list...maybe layer(I've started keeping track)

One day every game might be freemium luckily there's a pretty large catalogue of games to go back to..

Didn't even know it was on the charts!

Also, as undeadcow said, Ninja Dino Showdown?! If King Cashing is also a hidden gem then add that too. It made slots actualy fun for me.

Ok, thank you everyone, I've finally put all the games here into 4 post. Posts 1 and 31 contain everygame with a detailed description... While posts 29 & 30 contain single games listed and brief descriptions. So please keep suggesting games In whatever format you would like. The 5 doesn't really matter anymore its just a rough estimate, but you can list 1 game or 20 it doesn't matter. Thanks...

Army of Darkness: tower defense. Like the other poster said, it's very addictive

Shadow Era: TCG. Beautiful designs, very competitive field, deep strategy.

Jangle: word game. It's only five 30-second rounds against the computer or an online/local opponent in real time. Very fast paced and challenging.

Poker Kingdom: Chinese poker. Has an online multiplayer mode, but never used it.

Toon shooter: this is a superfun shmup with pleasing graphics and creative gameplay (2 player co-op on same device, c'mon).

Vay (absolutely fantastic J-RPG that offers hours and hours of gameplay)

Onslaught! (great action game for "retro 2D" graphic fans)

Legends of Yore - AWESOME retro rouge like.

SEI - it's like Tetris and Scrabble at the same time.

8 - Bit Rally - more like Sega CD rally!

Battle for Cydonia - sort of a mix of... dare I say Command & Conquer?... and a console version (read: the Genesis/SNES versions) of Battletech.

Pixel Ninja - this is what Tenchu for the PSOne would have been like if it was on the SNES.

4 tenors - in this hilarious 4 played same device multiplayer game, your object is to knock off the other tenors and steal the spotlight.

Ziggurat - in this overlooked real time defense game your standing on a hill protecting it shooting down enimies.

Roboto - this I a higquality platformer that is seriously underplayed, it's up there with the best, check it out.

Pigs in trees - another cool game where u fly around as a pig in a plane defending ur base from birds...

Siege hero - this game was awesome, the day it cane out it had consistent high reviews.... The first chapter is ok, it's the second chapter where the game gets really good. It's a first person angry birds basically. At first it was just about shooting down the enemy but evlved into this really great combo of shooting and puzzle elements. It hasn't gotten an update in a awhile so I feel like alot of people are missing this one...(ok this was Finnaly updated a few weeks ago with the age of cowboys - it offererred the same great gameplay as in the previous chapters)



Finger Shot Rpg - for as much love and hype as it's gotten recently I didnt wanna add it but even with that added hype I still feel the game is getting the love it deserves, turn-based multiplayer with multiple characters and slingshot mechanism...its amazing

Gunman Clive - for as a good a game it is.. I don't see it getting enough attention... I think it's the graphics that make this one really stand out to go along with the addicting Megaman- style gameplay.

Areomasters - this game is underlooked for being as polished as it is, a great dds...

Get out of my galaxy - with some amazing graphics and fun gameplay this game deserves a little more praise

Puzzle sphere - another great overlooked puzzeler

Coliseum heroes - or Coloseum two versions of bassicly the same game, reason being the original developer want getting the sales he needed so he turned to gamevil. It's an arena hack and slash that's fun and engrossing also challenging...hard to put down.

Revolt - this came out in 2011? For 2.99 ur getting ur money's worth

Onibi - it's a puzzle game infused with music and really great for the time it lasts..

Princess pajama - it's free and has a perfect 5 from 50 people

Raon defenders - haven't played this one either but looks good

Coco loco - for being a chilingo game similar to angry birds I'd think this would be a bad thing.. But actually it's not, its a pretty fun slinging game..

Army or darkness - this game won't let u stop playing until uve best it, that addictive

Dragons rage - not sure what happened to this game it was for a time pretty huge. You control. Dragon move him around 360• with the acceleramator while blowing fire at swarms of people coming to get u(mostly knights and archers) kind of a nive twist being the dragon with an awesome gameplay mechanic

Monster Island - Ok as far is I'm concerned this is Miniclips best game it's a juiced up Fragger that relies alot more on puzzle strategy by switching between what to throw.

Early bird - this game was insanely popular awhile ago and free.. Kind of like the old temple run or JPJR well it just got it's first update a little while ago in along time. Don't be fooled into thinkging its an AB rip. It's one of the the few legit bird games with a compeletly new gameplay mechanic.

flaming igglo - it's a really complicated tdesque game where ur try to keep ir igloo from burning down while shooting a ship, playing around with a bunch of animals and throwing ice cubes and snowballs...

Worms golf - this is a fun mix between worms and golf plays kind of like super stick man golf except you can play multiplayer with the worms taking turns..

Reckless Getaway - though theyre probly known for their success with reckless racing, reckless getaway just might be the better game... Running from the cops in a 2d down perspective while manuvering around traffic... It's insanely fun...

Osmos - I think I need to remind people that this game is probly still one of the best games on iOS and came up with a complete new game mechanic that left people speechless, and it still offers that same expierience now.

New

Sugar Kid - Well I had a good amount of fun with this game. It features touch based line drawing puzzle gameplay. The objective is to protect the sugar kid from from dropping liquids by using lines to redirect where the flow of water(or other liquids) drops down to. This isn't the whole game though some levels require you to aim the liquid at sugar kid, some you need to fill in grids. Another aspect of thr gameplay is the ability to stop sugar kid by touching him as he walks back and forth. To sum it up the game looked to have everything need needed to be a hit, fun addicting and different gameplay, published by Bulkypix.. Unfortunately the game fell under the radar before it was even released.

Lord of the Roads - Being a big fan of magic cube I felt like they really nailed it on the head with Lord of the Roads. Combing RPGs elements with a shootem up type game. I felt that it was not just unique but also alot of fun. When it was initially released it had some popularity but eventually it plummeted to the abyss of games that are hidden from the pubic eye. I guess the biggest downfall was it's lack of replayabilty. Although there is a good bit up lvling up diff characters it still is basically the same game over and over.

Ecapology - this game can get really difficult and it was designed that way. Made by someone on a bus in-between tours, it doesn't come off feeling like game made by someone with no knowledge of game development. It's a unique concept for a puzzle game and one I'd def. recommend.

Love, Hate and the other ones - a fairly new realease, it didn't get the attention it deserved I feel. Esp being an award winning game. It's a puzzle game based on calling to or moving away different little blob characters. You control the 2 main characters Love and Hate. Love calls the "other ones" towards her with a kiss while hate does the opposite. For a game that I feel is pretty deep and polished I felt like it should have atleast been a gotw nominee but unfortunately it's lack of popularity kept it off the polls.

Spooky Hoofs(was surprised to find out not a lot have heard of this game)

Totem Runner (this is pretty new, but i dont think it got the attention it deserves)

Captain Antarctica (this came out before Super Mole Escape, and they are very similar, and both are pretty fun. This didnt get the attention it deserves either)

I,ll update more later
