New iPad user. Game suggestions I might have missed?

Hey all. I've been reading up on many excellent recommendations here, and I exhausted about $50 worth of games to jumpstart my collection of iPad games. However, I'm almost certain there's some games I overlooked, and I'm looking for some help.

Below is a list of what I've got so far. Keep in mind that I am likely to have many of the high profile ios ports on other platforms (FTL, Bastion, Xcom, etc.), so I'd like to stick with ios exclusives and offline playable games (for the most part).

Infinity Blade 3
Wayward Souls
Asdivine Hearts
Hero Emblems
Goblin Sword
Kingdom Rush Frontiers
Ridiculous Fishing
Angry Birds
Bad Piggies
Bean Dreams
Squids Wild West
Monument Valley
80 Days
The Room
The Room 2
Device 6

Crossy Road
Jetpack Joyride
SOL: Stone of Life
Punch Quest
Plants vs Zombies 2
Tiny Thief
Puzzle Craft
Phoenix HD
Football Heroes 2015
Super Stickman Golf 2

You can get a pretty good idea of the games I like from the list. I'm a particular fan of procedurally-generated games, games with challenge and high replay value, action and RPG games, and games that have loot, grinding, or arcade elements. Here's some of my favorite games, for example (rated, not in order): http://tinyurl.com/m22mhw5

Any suggestions, whether free or paid, are appreciated. I'll try to answer any questions, if they help to produce better recommendations. Thanks!

Add maybe Neon Shadow, Space Marshals and Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath (High quality port from a 2005 Xbox game) if you like FPSs, all of them are absolutely amazing.
