Best Buys/Steals Section

I have been trying to find some hidden gems in the app store. They do not have to be relatively inexpensive, but that would be nice too. So my question is, what is everybody's favorite steal or 99cent game?
List them here!

It's a Tower Defense game and the only one on the iphone.

I'm a beta tester and we are starting on version 1.2 soon which will add several more towers, a sandbox mode to play with designs, and some new backgrounds.

At a dollar its a definite steal

As VeganTnT said, Mote-M is a fantastic deal. One of my favorite is Ikanoid, which is a steal at $0.99:

Dizzy Bee ($2.99)
Dreigit - not bad for $0.99. I haven't played the new version but looks like it's improved.

I was all set to purchase this game a few weeks ago, but read in a review that it features absolutely no sound at all (no music / no sound effects) - can you confirm if this is true?

Playing a completely silent version of this game doesn't appeal to me at all. While it may only be $1, the sound effects of the guns is a large part of any tower defense game and I've decided not to support developers that put out half finished apps just to earn a quick buck. I know that makes me sound like a tight-ass, but seriously, how difficult would it be to add some sound effects?

As soon as it's a more complete game, I'll be purchasing.

That is correct - there is no sound. Still a great game, though, and one can only presume that eventually we'll get sound. I just hope that any music is optional.
