Blue Skies is a good example.
For me it's Hero of Sparta...

For me, definitely iFishing.
Those that remember the thread will know that my initial impressions of it were extremely negative- I thought it was rubbish! You cast, you wait, nothing happens etc etc.
Then the dev (RPGGuy) posted a guide online which really helped non-fisherman like myself, and I got the game. I realized you have more chance of catching them when reeling in etc. Now I love it.

lately I been playing crazy hotdogs and chocolate shop frenzy, I got pretty much all the top games on my phone and those 2 games get played everyday for long periods of time more than any game. I am addicted to these types of games

is there more games like these?

Touchgrind. I never tried or like skateboard in any way, so I thought "meh, another stupid game". So I tried it and intantly hook onto it.

AutoMangle - it was buggy and incomplete at first. Now it is fun as hell to pick up and play, and it keeps getting better.

Pathways - gets harder and harder with each level

Bike or Die 2- I hated the floaty bike physics at first. One I got used to it and took it for what it is this game got much better. It is one of the most frustrating games I've ever played.

Love the game hate the control method.

The developer should take note of the recently-updated controls in Mouse House:

Dropship, the controls are so odd feeling. I STILL don't have the hand of shooting quite right. But now that I can fly well the game is much more fun.

Dropship for me for sure.

When I first started playing this game the controls were insane and I could not figure out how it all worked out. The point of the game, shooting, ect. Now after spending alot of time with it and giving it a chance im hooked on it. Its a difficult game, tho I love you can go back and play levels to beat your high scores!
