Braveman, so simple yet very addictive.

For me it is Knights Onrush. I didn't find the original promo video very interesting and the game didn't look that fun. It just looked like a version of StickWars with better graphics but so many people were raving about it so I bought it. I was absolutely amazed by how good it was, it was well worth my $4.99 Anyone who hasn't picked it up for $0.99 is going to regret it.

Oh and by the way there is already a thread about this here.

Air Master 3D

I played the Lite version some time ago, had a hard time controlling it, didn't care for it much.

However, the developer, AlexN, apparently has been hard at work as when I saw information about recent updates to the game (with more to come!) I've completely changed my mind about the game.

It's always nice to see a developer active here on touchArcade. If you haven't seen it yet, give it a shot and/or wait for the 1.5 version to get approved, it's got even more good stuff...

Sorry didn't see other thread. Also, I guess I should have specified good or bad surprise (e.g., I'm sure a lot of people were surprised with Worms, both good and bad).

Real Soccer and Stoneloops really became quick favorites for me even though I wasn't sure I would like them.
