ITT: Games you probably overlooked or didn't know about!

I'm only reccomending these games because they are worth your time, whether they are worth your money is up to you.

-Graviton
If you liked 'Blimp', you will love Graviton, which came out before Blimp, but didn't seem to create the same level of buzz. The graphics are great, controls are strong.

-ShapeShape
Recent release. A slick platformer / get to the goal game. Comes with a built in level editor (fantastically designed).

-Caster
This game may not be for everyone, the controls are incredibly designed, BUT some people (and I understand why) have trouble with it. I'd leave this game in the hands of experienced and hardcore gamers. it's a truly unique tittle..

-Aero Wings
this is from the developer of Heavy Mach, and its very similar in gameplay. Just a real 'fun factor' game, jump right in and smash through some levels!

Currently Playing::Meteor Blitz, EW Jim, Boost 3D, COD: Zombies, Eliminate::

Wow, thanks for the list! I've seen Graviton, Shape Shape, and Castor but I didn't know about Aero Wings. Will have to check that one out.

Aero Wings looks tempting.

Edit: Tried the lite version...ehhh not for me.

While I have heard of most of these I actually haven't *played* any of them. Caster looks kinda interesting to me for some reason. It's a shame, so many fun games can be easily overlooked now.

Both of the above games have lite versions you can try. Caster is a cool game but it does take some getting use to.

1) Tried out AT&T tethering and did not have enough money for the pole.
2) Apple still hasn't fixed the no-hardware-keyboard bug.
3) Still can't use the "Cut" function on the AT&T bill...current 4.x issues

I suck at Caster Only been able to complete two levels. As for unknown.

Quick Turn. I launched a thread on it a while ago, but I still think it deserves more recognition. It's a great (once free) game. 99c, but really worth it.

Electro Gravitron. Another awesome game. Wow, not free anymore either? Check it out, though.

Durak. It has gotten some attention. Most polished of card games, IMO.
