The Game of Life or Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor

I have $15.52 in my iTunes account, and I want to have enough money for when Modern Combat: Sandstorm (gameloft's upcoming first person shooter.) After my calculations, I realize if I want to get Sandstorm, I can only get one of these two games (The Game of Life or Spider: The Secret of Bryce Manor), but I don't know which one to get.

They both look extremely enjoyable, but I am unsure of which to buy. I want the game with replay value, good gameplay, and I don't want something short, I don't want something the developers will never update to add content if the game is short to start with, and I don't want something I'll play for 2 days and never play again. Do you understand what I'm trying to say? I just want a game that will entertain me, and not something that has -- levels and nothing to do when you beat the game. Please help me out!

If both these games aren't good (gameplay wise, fun, length), then please reccomend something else/tell me to wait. If you need any more clarification for what I'm trying to say, let me know! Thanks!!!

I don't have Life but I have played other board games on the iPod and I have spider. As Midian said, there is really no contest. To me board games just aren't that great when not on a board haha.

On the topic of Spider, whats better: Spider or Wolf RPG?

Sorry for posting, just seems silly to post a thread about it when I could just ask here

Yeah, I really didn't see the big thing about Spider as it seemed pretty repititive but Wolf also seemed short with only (9?) levels but I dunno

Easy answer - Spyder - good game - plenty of content.

Chances are MC:S is gonna be $7 so you should get Gangstar, because it is incredible, and that. However, I personally think Livefire/Killtest is going to be superior to MC. However, they both look great
