Unique iPhone Games!

Hey, I want to know what games available in the app store are unique to you and why. I'd like to know what other games you think are worth mentioning that are different from the hundreds of Sudoku apps.

One of my favorite examples of a unique game is Platypus. The reason that I think this game is so original is because it is just a simple arcade/sidescrolling shooter game... But the game was made from many photos of clay models (similar to clay animation). I really want to buy this game, but it's a little too expensive for me right now :P

A good example of a popular type of game with a unique twist is 7 Cities - TD. Most people know that there are many Tower Defense games on the app store. But the reason that this one is so special is because of it's leveling/upgrading feature. Each tower can be level up based on the amount of kills they get, towers can recieve new skills that make them more powerful - when they level up enough, and they can be upgraded an infinite amount of times.

Those are two excellent examples of unique games, but now I'd like to know of more. If you have any games that you know of that are different from most, please post about them.

[Edit] Another game worth mentioning is Radio Flare. It's another sidescrolling shooter, but it uses music as part of the gameplay.

Thanks, I can't wait to see the results of this thread

Yeah, I saw that when it was released earlier today. :P I think a more appropriate word to describe it is "special." It's a very special game for very special people.

I would like to talk about Sim City! It's one of the only games with a little "TM" after its name!

I like :
Skybound for it's visuall look and boss mode. The gameplay is cool, but normal boss is not that original allthough it's fun to play. Boss mode is a bit more original, and fun to play.

Pop
Addictive and nicely executed.
