What is you favourite genre for idevice games?

Hey guys,

I'm not a developer doing market research, but curious about what type of games everyone likes on their iphone. I am a huge fan of RTS games on my mac and the random FPS bloodbath once in a while, however on iPhone I find myself getting completely addicted to genres I had never considered and would probably never enjoy so much on a desktop system.

I find myself drawn to the following games on iphone: RPG, TD and stuff like Peggle where you shoot balls at stuff and need to get a match etc.. you get the point (I would never touch this on a desktop system). I'd like to add RTS to this list, but still haven't found any true RTS (I keep compating it to starcraft and that's quite the benchmark)

Very curious to hear your favourite genres! And do they differ a lot from your favourites on desktop systems?

Well, you could've just let a mod move instead of making a new one so now we have two of the same threads.

Turn based strategy is a big one for me. I usually don't get many to play other than Advance Wars anywhere else :3 Usually when I play on my desktop, I play Team Fortress 2, Portal and such, and when on my laptop I play Mungyodance and Peggle (Mungyodance being something like stepmania).
