Games that should and shouldn't have made it on Apple's Best of 2009 list

I think Soosiz, Dungeon Hunter, or MiniSquadron should have made the list instead of Sally's Spa and Canabalt.

Hey! How come you say that? Canabalt is not very deep or complex, but it is hugely entertaining for when you jsut want to mess around and kill time, and it runs pretty dang smoothly for going so fast. And what exactly do you have against Sally's Spa? from what i hear its one of the best time management games out there, ive been wanting to pick it up myself, actually.

Eliminate, Paper Toss, and Sally's Spa shouldn't have been on there. I never seemed to enjoy those games.

personal taste !
sallys spa is good if you like time management games

and with most others if you dont like the genre you wont like the game

With all the hype, reviews and the fact that it's the closest thing to Super Mario Bro, Soosiz was a huge let down.

I still have it in on my iPhone, but stopped playing after a dozen levels.

It's well made but its just not that fun, at all.

As for Canabalt, I would consider it one of the best mini games, but not for this list.

Understood. Let's just agree to disagree and move on. I don't want to turn this into another 70 page thread on Canabalt. lol. You liked it. I didn't like it.

RPG's are the fathers of time management.

And Dungeon Hunter is a great RPG.

I agree, about Eliminate, it should not be there. Perhaps on the greediest developer list?

Paper Toss could be among the best min games. Sally's Spa, never played.

I would take Eliminate and Paper Toss out of that list.
I would include: Soosiz and iBlast Moki.

What? RPGs have nothing to DO with time management! Where did you pull that from?
