Games that women love

Hi, all,

I'd like to hear from you all about which games on the App store are most popular with the ladies... guys, feel free to post here about your wives, girlfriends, daughters, etc.

There have been a few less-than-productive discussions in this forum about "games for guys" vs. "games for girls"... etc. Let's try to avoid the stereotypes in this discussion and stick with the facts of what we're playing, ok?

Many games appeal to a wide audience... gender, age, etc. Feel free to mention those, but I'm most interested to see which games are most loved by the gals out there.

I have two reasons for posting this request: 1) I've played Peggle and Scramble to death and I'd like to try something different (preferably not something violent), and 2) my company strives to develop games for a broad audience, and although lots of guys post about their favorite games, we don't hear from women as frequently in these forums.

Thanks bunches!

I think most of the girls like the more casual games, such as doodle jump, flight control, harbor master, and games along that line. Pocket God also seems to attract girls. The game that most of them played was actually Papijump, but doodle jump is the new fav.

Oh yeah, and Ngmoco's Touchpet Dogs seems like it could b a hit for the "feminine crowd."

Girls like all kinds of games! Sure some like the casual games but others like so many different genres you would be surprised. RPG's FPS TPS puzzlers sims you name it! Should not be a characterization at all - girls vs boys etc.

So how about - Minigore, Sheeple, Buzz Ball, Elven Chronicles, Scoops, Sky Burger, Cooking Dash, Castle Warriors, Catcha Mouse, Scramble, Collapse, Creepy Town, Puzzle Quest, Dungeon Raiders, Gomi, Gemmed, Rolando, Homerun Battle, Inkvaders, Lexic, Mr Mahjong, Prairie Chute, Bloons TD, Zenonia, Chronicles of Inotia, Secret of Monkey Island, Skee Ball, Spy Bot, Toy Bot (1-3), Toy Bot Mini Missions, Toki Tori, Topple...............

Complete agreement here, we are stereotyping ourselves...
