Hard because they're genuinely challenging or hard because they never end/the controls are terrible?

People find our game ArchRobo hard. But they seem very happy with the controls.

If you like TD, people seem to thing geodefense swarm is hard. I actually found the first one harder but i guess it depends on wheter you like em open or fixed. Anyway their both great games, try them.

Lunarcy is hard, but awesome. theFABRIK seem to enjoy making intentionally difficult games.

i thought warfare inc and quantum collapse to be relatively hard (both RTS) and very fun to play ( warfare inc has multiplayer)

i also agree with GeoDefense (first one) It's very fun and has a puzzle feel to it. I'm having a hard time with swarm but in reality I'm not really trying, there's been too many good games lately, i cant even get started on a lot.

There does tend to be a significant dumbing down of difficulty on the app store. This is obviously because most players are kind of casual and devs are understandably keen to maximise appeal.

There are a few that standout as difficult-but-cool though. I find games based on mastering controls very rewarding.

iPlutoid:
Very tough at first, not just the controls but also getting your head around the true-3Dness. This makes it all the more fun when you get the feel of it.

Eliminate:
Enough threads of it's own but I find it hard and am hoping to actually find it fun soon.

Puzzlemaniak:
20 great puzzle games, all of them VERY hard on the toughest levels. The most underated game on the app store.

Ground Effect:
Yeah, it's my game and it's not out yet (hopefully the next few days) but like any good driving game (personal opinion) it's absolutely all about getting the feel of the controls until what once seemed impossible becomes second nature.

+1 Lunarcy

Also Orbital, Eliss, Aves, Darkest Fear, and Alice's Adventures: The Rabbit Hole of Death all get very difficult.

EDIT: I forgot Squareball - but you can't wuss out and play it on easy!
