What was your first iPhone/iPod Touch game?

It's been a long time now, since the App Store was launched, and even longer since games started popping up on jailbroken devices.

I am just wondering what everyones first game was on their iPhone/iPod Touch, whether it was paid or free, jailbroken or from the App store, it doesn't matter.

Personally, the first game I ever played on my original iPhone, was a very early build of Raging Thunder yhat was only playable in portrait view that had been released on jailbroken device stores (I have forgotten what the store thing is called cidia? or something? It is a long time since I had my iPhone jailbroken, now it is de-jailbroken.)

The first game I ever downloaded off the App store was Blue Skies Lite.

If you can't remember, you can go onto STORE - VIEW MY ACCOUNT then you can choose the option to view your purchase history.

My Purchase history for the first month:





Edit - am actually quite shocked, looking through my app purchases to find that I spent loads of money on crappy apps and games when the app store was first launched. If I had know how the games would develop to the current standard, I probably wouldn't have bought so many crappy games, lol.

My first 2 were Beer Bounce(Quarters) and Cro-Mag Rally, 2 games that I still consider great today.

Downloaded it right before my honeymoon last year and it was an awesome distraction while waiting around or sitting in the hotel room.

Mine was Cannon Challenge, I was cheap and excited that I could get free games.
Then my first paid app was Moto Chaser. (Because it was #1 in the app store)

Yeah, that was one of my first ones also. It was a pretty successful game.

Mine was Gameloft's RealSoccer 2009. I actually saw a gameplay video on YouTube, assumed it was a PSP game, and when I found out it was an iDevice game, I bought my Touch!

I love katamari and spore

My friend said to me, "I think the weather's trippy." I said, "No, man, it's not the weather that's trippy, perhaps it is the way that we perceive it that is indeed trippy." Then I thought, "Man, I should've just said, 'Yeah."CS.one R3DC3ll Faction-Join us or die...proud member of TheBeastlyNinja Epic-uber elite comedy crew

I don't remember which one I actually got first, but I got Hydro Tilt and Penguin Catapult Lite on the same day.
