Amazing games that were insanely popular at a point, then just sort of faded away...

Amazing games that were insanely popular at a point, then just sort of faded away...

One problem I've noticed with the iOS game atmosphere;
Games that were amazing/still are amazing, tend to be outdated rather quickly and fall off the top# charts. (And the games that stay on the top# charts, are pretty much proven to be "gaming" the charts and are pretty bad.)

I've had an iPhone for over 3 years now, and been an avid gamer.
I've played tons of games that were incredibly awesome and popular, and then moved on. (Limited space and such.)

What are some games that impressed or captivated you, then practically fell out of existence over time.

Mine being things such as Lara Croft: Guardian of Light, Across Age, Puzzle Quest (The first one.), The Quest...
I could go on, i'm sure, especially if I load my iTunes account history.

But i'm sort of curious as to what I could've been missing over the years, and would never find on the AppStore without deep browsing every category.

Eliminate pro and Star Wars imperial academy (both were Sci-Fi multiplayer FPS games by ngmoco).

They were very popular, then faded away and now they're gone forever

Corporate Fury

Was pretty hot some years ago. Still love the game and would KILL to see a sequel, or even just modernized update of the original.

Tower of Fortune. Zombie Tsunami.

Talk of the towns, but went silent. I cant even see them referenced in other games.
