Untouched paid games...what to buy

Has anyone have the problem on having to buy too many games and hardly even touching it?

I spent about 50 bucks on games I hardly even play so can anyone give me some advice on what games I must have?

I enjoy mostly puzzle and action games, but any genre is ok.

I have the same problem. I bought Mevo, Touchgrind, Sway, Aqua Forest (BIG mistake), and a bunch of other games of the sort. What do you mean by action games.

Good Puzzle Games:

-iBlast Moki

(I'll add more in a bit)

This is pretty much the case with every game I buy- I have spent more money than I care to admit in the app store, purchasing pretty much every half-way decent game that gets released... yet I spend less than half an hour with any given game that I buy (with a few exceptions - PathPix, Mr. Mahjong, Civilization, Drop7 and the Settlers)

Playing: FIFA 12 Monster Island Quarrel Deluxe FIFA Superstars Fix-It-Up
Waiting For: Trenches 2, Ultra Kid, Car Jack Streets 2, Star Command

i think that's the story of 90% of TAer's (..LOL TAer's)

my best advice is to only buy games that are "one more go" like, or REALLY in-depth and lonngg gameplay, or good as hell multiplayer (Cod, galcon)

I know what you mean! Half of what I originally purchased, I hardly play now.

I've reviewed about 16 puzzle games so far and I can recommend Parking Break out of all of them. If you're interested in the quest/escape-room type of puzzle game, I can also recommend iPanic Room - but if you're looking for lots of levels, it might not work for you. Or if you want a puzzle game/time management/design type then I'd recommend Home Sweet Home.

As for action games, Tap Fu is fun, and I personally like Alice in Bomberland (even though it's incredibly difficult to survive!). If you're into shooter games, you can also check out Nanoids.
