0.99 games that surprise you when you find they are really good

I was looking at some entertaining games, pocket god in particular, and was wondering why these games do so well. Average rating 4.5 stars from 6500 ratings. Is it really that good? And are there any other games like this?

F.A.S.T. I wouldn't have expected to to be only $1.19

As for Pocket God; I dont understand it either, it's a game I play for 2 minutes every update and never otherwise.

Other good 99c games; Flight Control, Aqua Globs, Knights Onrush, Inkvaders, DrawRace, Big Top 10, Alive 4-ever, MUST.EAT.BIRDS

pocket god

the reason PG is so popular is this: bolt did a great job creating this game, awesome graphics, everything runs smooth, but perhaps the biggest thing is, they've added -->26<-- updates, TWENTY SIX and its only $1. plus if you look at it, PG isnt even categorized under 'games' its under 'entertainment' idk bout u guys but it entertains me

minigore is pretty fun, although the thing that bugs me most is that its super boring till you get ur score to around 2000 :/ once u get goin tho, damn its pretty hectic, really keeps ur attention. the game has a lot of potential i think, hopefully the devs add good updates :/

Aqua Globs is a good value for 99 cents, and so is Sky Dodge, and Lunarcy, both of which are getting highscores in the next update.
