good puzzle game?

Can you recommend me good puzzle games for iPhone? I'm fresh iPhone 3G user, most probably the true stars of the AppStore are away from the Top100...

Thanks in advance!

Start with a "rush hour" puzzle, Unblock Me Lite is a good choice. Its free, and has 800 puzzles. (No idea why anyone pays for the full version.) They did add tiny ads to the lite recently, but I hardly notice them.

Then buy Fling! for .99. I cannot rave enough about Fling! Its an extremely simply concept, just like the rush hour puzzles, packaged with a variety of timed, unlock and arcade modes that make the damn thing incredibly addictive. The polish level is very very high. Also, the thing about Fling is that the more you play, the better you get...the improvement is very fast, very steep, and keeps going a long time. The developers of Fling are still vastly better then the players on the global leaderboards for this very reason.

Puzzle Maniak is the king of logic puzzle games. 20 different games, with infinitely generated random games with variations and multiple difficulty levels...

And I gotta plug Str8ts (lite) When you get tired of Sudoku, check this out!

Nice list by Brett

From that list, I second: Ynth, Nintaii, Sheepish (obviously lol), Alio the Woodcutter, Mouse About (this is the first puzzle game I bought), Blocked (second puzzle game I bought), Ivory Tiles (I just recently bought this, on sale now for 99 cents), Bobby Carrot (I have all of them, but only played (and is almost finished with) BCF so far).

Apparently there is something wrong with Puzzle Maniak's last update. Pre-update the reviews were great...post update, its 2 1/2 stars over 177 reviews. And its 4.99! So looks like its now a game to avoid, not buy.

I dont really count marble shooters as a puzzle game, but if it is, I highly recommend Stoneloops as well

Here is the thread comparing the different marble shooters: http://forums.toucharcade.com/showthread.php?t=22548
