Battleheart-an arcade/rpg fighter in which you control four units and try and survive waves of monsters.

Enviro-bear 2010-you control a bear in a car. 'Nuff said.

Dungeon raid-kind of like a match 3+ game. You draw lines through various items to accumulate equipment and health to help defeat monsters.

I guess I need to do a better description of call of mini: zombies.
It's a third person shooter using somewhat blocky textures (it's meant to be blocky.)
It is made by triniti and is an arena shooter, it features online co op survival, a vs, in which you vs other people. You can upgrade weapons or buy new ones, if you shoot at the zombies, sometimes they explode.
You can also buy new characters to play as.

Agree with Clash Force, great little retro style platformer.

Another great underated game is 'Final Run'

Please check that out, small indie group have created it, great 'mad max' style world and you're in a car with the usual weapons etc, great little storyline, really enjoy it.

My two cents.

I don't think anyone else mentioned these, so here it goes -

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.

Yay! iOS games!
