Best Marble/Ball Rolling Game?

There are a lot of games in the App Store that fall in to this "genre" and with the recently released Marble Blast Mobile and the new update to HydroTilt, I want to know which one is the best.

Most of the games have different objectives and gameplay but they are in the same "genre" and usually you have to get from point A to point B.

I've tried Marble Blast Mobile, Super Monkey Ball, and Hydro Tilt XL. Hydro Tilt and SMB are pretty different, but Monkey ball is better. Marble Blast Mobile has clunky buttons on the screen, and it is more of a "collect the crystals" than moving through the level. So, ranked, from best to worst:

1. Super Monkey Ball
2. Hydro Tilt XL
3. Marble Blast Mobile

I think labyrinth games go in their own genre. If I wanted a labyrinth game I would have made a thread comparing all the labyrinth games.

Thanks. I forgot to mention that I already have Super Monkey Ball and Rollit, I put them in this thread as well to make it more of a general comparison. I'm tilting towards getting HydroTilt as well.

I have Marble Blast and Hydrotilt, and both are very good. It really depends on what you like. Marble Blast is about collecting gems, while Hydrotilt is about using the various tools to reach the finish line. You can't go wrong with either, although I've heard of some lag with Marble Blast on older gen iPod Touches and iPhones.

I haven't seen too many labyrinth games. You roll a marble from point A to B, exactly what you were asking for.
