Let's Golf. Didn't expect much from it but was pleasantly surprised with my $.99 purchase.

I would have to say Edge. Only because the game doesn't look so impressive by the screenshots, but when you get to playing it it's a really good game.

I still can't. I want to like it, but it (like Bejeweled) bores me.

California Goldrush is very addicting and fun. And I wasn't expecting much, because the developer's (Digital Chocolate) other games are rather weak and boring.

Tiki towers. That's a nice little gem for a buck.

Dropship impressed the hell out of me today. I had tried the lite version way back, and this game has been around forever, but i never thought it was great.

Once you start flying through the bigger levels, and you get to see the sweeping perspective shifts..I don't know how you can't be a fan after that. Gorgeous vector graphics, tons of levels, flawless controls..If you still don't know about Dropship, don't hesitate.

Sway. I normally suck at platformers and cosequently don't like them much, but I became totally hooked on it. There is just something that I really enjoy about the game mechanic.

Flight of the Amazon Queen - never played point and click adventures before, downloaded it when it briefly appeared for free and couldn't let go until I finished it. Now playing "Sam and Max Season One" on PC and eyeing other P&C games !

Favorites: Puzzle Quest, The Quest, Sway, Glyder, Reign of Swords, Flight of the Amazon Queen
