Worms. Especially because I believe they are making a whole new game, instead of adding multiplayer.

Oh, and Real Racing.

Too many to list, but recently:

Wheeler's Treasure(sorry guys I know a lot of you liked it, but I found it boring)
Command and Conquer(shouldn't of bought it in the first place as I'm not a fan of the genre)
Groovin' Blocks(boring, should've just stuck with Tetris)
Tap Fu(shallow shallow game)
Canabalt(should've waited for a price drop, it's alright, but not 2.99 cents worth to me)

Also too many to list... I hate the App Store.

Worst of all, people around here like to moan when I get picky about what I'm spending my money on! Yes I know it's only 99 friggin' cents, but so were the 101 other apps I ended up disliking and now I'm down $100.

Yeah, "many hours" kinda goes against the general consensus that HoS is waaaay too short.

I've been TRYING to follow the following policy so I don't regret buys.

#1) Don't believe the hype. Especially here on TA where it can be pure hysteria at times.
#2) Try the lite FIRST
#3) Carefully look at Youtube vid.

I typically won't buy an app anymore without at least looking at a vid of gameplay.

Even after all this some still slip through the cracks:
Alien Glyphs
Triazzle - Even though on sale I still don't play
RC Heli - ignored reviews about bad control scheme.
Rebound Rivals - same as above
Isotope - Loved it until Meteor Blitz came out. No room for two!

A purchase that others regret but I love is:
TapFu - I know, shallow. But I love kicking ninja booty, I keep coming back.
