What games are you trying to "snipe"? Ever been successful?

Personally, me and Touchgrind have a battle on who's gonna cave in first. I've been watching it ever since I got into the app store. However I think the time has come where I must accept defeat..

What are any games that you've had your eye on?
What's your proudest "snipe"?

prob let's golf. Just get touchgrind. It loses its appeal eventually, but it's still good for a pickup every so often. It really is a joy to play once you get the controls down.

I would have to say many Gameloft titles, since I had stayed strong on most and I am being rewarded now. I am with ya with Touchgrind though.

Orions and Elemental Monster TD, I kick myself in the sack everytime I think about their intro sales and me not picking them up.

Just get FC, you will NOT regret it! Most gameplay out of any physics puzzler I've seen. I guarantee that you'll never finish. And if you do (somehow), then there are plenty more ways to do all of the puzzles. Not to mention online uploads, trying other people's contraptions, and did I mention a of gameplay? (I think it's like 45 or so levels. The later ones will take you hours to figure out if you ever do lol) It's one of my All-Time favs as seen in my signature

There is a free online version of FC. Should try that one first to see if its your style.

I ended up not getting most of the games I wanted to snipe because by the time their prices drop, something better is in the horizon. e.g. Real Soccer. Now there is X2 and FIFA is also around the corner.

Recently Hero of Sparta, Knights Onrush, and Real Soccer 09 (Controls feel unresponsive and I tend to switch players rather than pass or kick ugh). Now if only Brothers in Arms would drop to 99 cents.
