Default Share you first-ever iOS gaming experience

Well, just wonder how you guys have coped with the touchscreen control, was it painstaking or was it an experience that you might find quite comfortable with?
My first "true" iOS gaming experience started from Iphone 4, I didn't give the platform much hope as I have heard many people talking about how funky the controls are.
But after trying the NOVA 1 on Iphone 4, it was surprisingly great .

I was moaning at friends when I first saw iPhones saying I wish it had physical buttons. But after playing a few games and getting used to on screen controls I find it so easy now. Specially with platformers

It was probably a shmup like a cave shmup since I love shmups, and relative touch rules o shmups, so no worries.

Chronicles of Inotia. It was such a grind-heavy game and I couldn't play it today if I wanted to, but back then, it was like, "yessssss".

On iPod touch 4 with Gun Bros and Solomon's Keep. No problems with virtual controls! And the skills in Solomon's Keep had me going back for more.

Default First IOS Experience

Mine was Simpsons Tapped Out, and Xcom. Was overall very happy with both. My only complaint in General would be lack of Game Center messaging, and a good achievement website

Nazi Zombies WaW on a friend's iPod 4. Blown away that such a little device could run a game like that, a few months later picked up one of my own.
