Monthly Hidden Gems (Everything PreOctober) Cast your opinions

You can post as many games as you want that counts from the beginning of the appstore up to last september. Just a reminder that this is a discussion but the final list of games will be posted later on as we need to weed out the ones that aren't such as minigore. The rest of these threads will be monthly but we feel it's fair to include all the games that aren't just from last month. Also while similar to camzy's thread it will not have a top 5 but include all that fits the criteria but will have recommendations of what you should try. This will end at the either end of october or a bit later as that may not give enough time. After that we will have one just for the month of October.

This is how we will determine it at the end.
-Position on the charts.
-Trafficking of the game here at TA.
-Regarding reviews or lack of.
While it is not perfect and such parts subjective, this is what we will use.

Here are some examples of what we think should be counted. Feel free to argue/disagree or add your own but make sure to post at least a link if possible. Notice that these are a few of the most recent games. Most importantly add the reason why it should be counted. More than one person may say a game already suggested but the same person may not say the game more than once
Ex:Aqua Globs, Aqua Globs, Aqua Globs, Aqua Globs..etc.

Oh and it's a given but please refrain from spamming a game. If anyone has any suggestions of improving anything then pm me as I don't want this thread sidetracked and ontopic.

Yes, great job guys with the links...skyye06 I think you listed ones I suggested as well so I will have to think some more.

TA members...there are lots of good games that get easily overlooked, let us know why they deserve a chance to shine.

Here is a game I think deserve recognition:

I'll probably think of a few more gems later tonight or tomorrow, though right now we have a pretty decent list.

yup, good stuff on there

...I am wondering what would be considered "too little" or "too much" traffic in a thread to consider it being overlooked?

See it is hard to measure, let's see how it turns out but better to post then not to.

I'd think that once it gets around 100 posts it's gotten quite a lot of views.

The iDrop Dead games have had over 100 posts in total (various topics combined) but it's pretty much just been the same few hardcore fans

yeah, there are several games with a fair number of posts but it's by all the same few people...I guess we'll just have to make a judgement call on it
