The best game you played, that no one has heard of!

What is the best game you've played that didnot have much hype around it. Maybe a game you've stumbled across and turned out to be great. For me a game I've come across that I ABSOLUTKY love is meteor blitz. This game came out very early in the app stores life, and was the first game I've played that really showed that a touch screen can actually have tight controls. There were no cheap deaths. I hoped this post has turned someone onto this gem, because it's a must play.

If anyone has any games like this they have played, then please post here.

Ive read some of those threads and none of them mentioned Omegapixel. Only a few people talked about it on it's own thread here too, so im assuming not a lot know about it.

Here's a couple more i think only a few know about.

Necrorun
Spooky Hoofs
Princess Punt (angry birds-inspired but I love it better than angry birds, which i hate)

Hmm maybe I should bump my top 4 hidden gems thread... Only cuz I was getting a good list of games and descriptions... I guess not unless someone has a big list of games and descriptions they want to add

For right now all I can think of for now is Ninja Attack, Once touch and Indodia. (first 2 r recent the other is old but I've never heard anyone mention it)

I've played inodia. There are so many apps it's hard for me to remember. I know I was addicted a few years ago to a match 3 type game in which the goal was to take over a steampunk version of Japan.

I need to upload some screenshots, but I'm not sure that one of my favs, Catball Eats All, is too well known. Also, there's a collectable card game played on a field similar to Playdek's latest; it's called Paleolitic wars.

I stumble across games by going though the newest releases in each category on my phone. They show up faster than any app tracker, and some disappear just as quickly.

Oh yeah...did I mention Beat It!
