Polished, Addictive Pick Up and Play games with all the bells and whistles

I just love Pick up and play type games and it's getting to the point where I really want polished graphics, openfeint or similar, achievements,....etc


Picked up Canabalt recently but with no global scores, even though I love the game, it loses it's "addictiveness" faster than it should with no Global Scores or achievements.

So I am looking for the best of the best in pick up and play type games that deliver the whole package...


Anyone have some suggestions ?

Meteor Blitz is a good one to get if you don't have it already. It has achievements and almost no load times.

Run! Its amazingly addictive.

I am beta testing the update right now, and the designer has succeeded in making it even more addictive by: (1) picking up the pace and (2) adding a new mode for folks that want an immediate challenge; (3) adding new obstacles that also look well done. But dont wait, Run! is a gem as it is.

Currently addicted to Clash Royale
